Yes they are good sources as they have a good reputation for throughout research. 8. No, they are not good sources as anyone can write anything and may not be expert. 9.
This mixture can be deposited in a number of ways which includes rain, fog, mist, snow and even dust. Acid rain is not distributed evenly across the world because the industrial development of countries is not the same. Acid rain is formed mainly from burning fossil fuels by industries like coal-burning power stations and factories. These factories send tons of pollution into the air where acid rain is formed. Our first thought would be that countries that are heavily industrialized would suffer most from acid rain and that other less industrialized countries would have little to no acid rain, but that is not always the case.
CO pollution does not affect some western countries as much as it effects other places such as Asia and other industrious nations and in increasingly industrial countries like China and India the causes of this pollution outweigh the efforts to reduce it in the rest of the world. Automobiles and factories will continue to be the main cause of CO pollution until we eventually run out of fossil fuels. The effects of CO emissions are still prevalent and the pollution keeps increasing on the daily. Even though there is a lot of pollution the EPA is making new standards for outdoor air that add on to the Clean Air Act, and will eventually reduce the effects of bad air quality. At the end of the day it is our fault for all of the pollution and we are making it harder to control it.
These cigarette butts are more than unsightly trash to the environment, as they can also emit toxins which can be washed out into our water system and the ocean that when animals, such as birds and sea mammals accidentally ingests these cigarette butts can be harmful to them as well. In a Coastal Clean Up performed in 2000 in California beaches, 230,000 cigarette butts were collected. It is accounted to be one of the commonly collected items found in beaches. In the United States alone, an estimated 170,000,000 cigarette butts are collected each year. In recent years, companies have implemented a “NO SMOKING” policy within the premise of the buildings.
Trash, Trash, Everywhere! Text By: Ashley Atkinson Edited By: Hannah Hunter and Jesse Lewis The life of your plastic water bottle can go way further than just the trash can. Our ocean is so polluted by our actions and carelessness that even us humans are being affected, sea animals, and surrounding animals are all being greatly influenced by the polluted waters. Our ocean is extremely polluted with plastics and other trash that humans have put in there. Specifically, 80% of the pollution that’s in the ocean, is because of us.
As discussed above, the oil spill led to oil slicks reaching several offshore coasts of the U.S. and contaminating marine life. In view of such circumstance, the U.S. authorities decided to put up a fishing ban and closed an area of 118 000km² which were affected, citing concerns with the dangers of consuming contaminated seafood. As a result, the fishing industry experienced a decrease in supply of seafood that significantly affected the livelihood of its merchants; in particularly those who were involved in oyster beds and shrimp operations in Louisiana. Although the fisheries eventually reopened, consumers continue to remain skeptical about the safety of eating seafood poached from these areas. The incident resulted in an estimated loss of $4.36 billion to the entire fishing industry
VIEWPOINT Capsizing one of the worst nightmare of the seafarers. Capsizing of a ship refers to a situation where the vessel at sea list to one side to such an extent that it’s not able to upright or regain its original position, leading to tipping over of the vessel in water and making it unsafe for both crew and machinery onboard. The ship’s sinking may lead to any sort of major accidents that may affect the marine environment it will also affect the life of the community lives near the shore that depends on the marine life for their income for their expenses. If the problem becomes severe, this might lead to human casualties. But some accidents whether we like it or not cause many loss of life.
WASTE MANAGEMENT THE PROBLEM Hardly anyone thinks about where their rubbish will end up once they have tossed it into a bin, and our apathy is one of the main causes of the increase in environmental pollution and loss of resources around the world. The sharp increase in waste output by the human population is largely due to expanding cities in developing countries. This wouldn’t matter as much if we were dealing with our waste efficiently, because a large percentage of our waste is actually recyclable or reusable. However, our economies put a lot of emphasis on systems that are extremely destructive to the environment, while hardly any effort is put forth to deal with the waste products, leading to it being improperly managed, and therefore unable to return properly to the environment. We then use up more of nature’s resources to run this system, leading to shortage of resources, increase in value, and even more wastage.
Another reason why fracking can be safe is that “imported natural gases can cause accidents and even kill” (Rogowsky) however, “with fracking there is no need to import goods because they are immediately on hand which will lower the amount of imported accidents” (Rogowsky). Still, adversaries of the fracking process will say that fracking is dangerous “yes, fracking can be dangerous, but so can coal mining, oil drilling, nuclear waste, windmill building, etc.” (Stossel). With the addition of fracking the amount of accidents will be lowered as the other inferior ways of getting energy will now be obsolete. Fracking can simply make the world a little safer than it is
As you know, it’s the environmental effects. As oil spill floats on water it prevents sunlight and air to pass through it. The shiny substance that you see on top layer of water makes it difficult for sea plants and sea animals to survive. The substance is so toxic that it can cause massive loss of species that live in the sea. Spilled oil can harm living things because its chemical substances are poisonous.
