The world economy has improved rapidly as a result of globalization in past decades. However, many environmental problems began to emerge during the economic boom. Especially, in the middle of the 20th century after World War II, many countries restarted economic development and urban construction. At this time, severe air pollution influenced a number of regions. For instance, London was affected by a critical air pollution event, called the Great Smog of London, in December 1952. During a week, 4000 people had died as a direct result of smog and over 100000 were got ill by the human respiratory tract. Subsequently, from 1978 to now, China has seen a great amount of economic increase, with its gross domestic product (GDP) expanding hundreds time since the reform and opening up. Although China has obtained a huge progress with the globalization, it has resulted in a series of environmental problems at the same time. The aim of the essay is to discover how the globalization affected the environment on air pollution, soil pollution and biological invasion in China. And I intend to analyze the instances of the connection between air
Neglect to take care of the land after many decades is starting to show significant negative effects on the environment. Many people do not know what all entails land pollution other than the commonly known pollutions such as chemical and waste, the list may surprise you. The list includes sewage treatment, nuclear waste, construction, urbanization, industrialization, landfills, mining, logging, agricultural practices. and deforestation (Rinkesh). As humans, we have continued to develop as a species technologically, communally and agriculturally. The effects we have had on the environment through human development has not been
Environmental issues are not restricted to specific regions, but are global and this makes tackling them even more difficult. Problems such as rising pollution levels, climate change phenomena and resource depletion threaten to ruin our future if unchecked. Water, soil and air pollution have been responsible for many illnesses and fatalities all over the world. It has been estimated that approximately 12.6 million people died as a result of living or working in unhealthy environments. Access to safe and clean energy is another challenge the world is facing today. Many rural regions in India and many other countries still lack access to usable energy. Since my early days in college, I have made an attempt to gain a deeper understanding of these problems. My love and passion for the environment grew as I kept learning and as a student of engineering, I was determined to come up with solutions to these environmental challenges. This is what drove me towards the field of Environmental Engineering.
According to the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an estimated 18 million acres of forest, which is roughly the size of the country of Panama, are lost each year. Undeniably, the deteriorating environmental situation, the increasingly severe pollution of the atmosphere, and water, the severe damage to the living environment of wild animals and plants, the extinction of many species, the deforestation and the transitional mining of mineral resources caused contrary facts. Human existence and development have brought real and more serious potential threats. The scarcity of environmental resources is manifested gradually. As environmental issues are becoming a bottleneck restricting economic growth, it is imperative that lousy effect governed the environment.
For many years, people have satisfied their needs, without showing any concerns or awareness about the care of our planet, the way we treat our environment is described by some, like murder. Thus, it is natural to ask ourselves if the environment should be protected because and only because human livelihoods depend upon it or the opposite, that us, humans, exist only because of our planet, and that we should do all our best to save the air we breathe, the ground we live on, the entire environment that surrounds us. First of all the study will begin by what the environment is through time, then it will show the obvious relationship
The Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1970 to help provide solutions to the environmental issues and problems that need to be addressed. The name of the agency tells us that they are here to protect the environment and hold those who would harm our earth responsible for their actions. Unfortunately, the very agency that has been tasked with our protection has now become the perpetrator of an environmental disaster in Colorado. Last week, the EPA accidently dumped over three million gallons of toxic waste into Animus River (Kinkaid, 2015). It would appear that the good guys in white hats have turned their hats in for a new color that bad guys are associated with in the movies (black hats). The Fox news article by Kinkaid is an opinion
Another very crucial environmental issue, besides global warming, involves the finite nature of natural re, which are being depleted faster than their replenishment rates. The development model of the 20th century, which promoted the continuous consumption of products, has resulted in the reduction of agriculture land, food, water re as also fossil fuels. If humanity continues to consume fossil fuels at the same rate as today, oil re will run out by 2030, gas by 2040 and coal by 2200. By 2025, the number of people suffering due to water stress will rise to approximately 3.5 billion and almost half the world’s population is expected to experience high water stress by
The environment is the home to all living and non-living organisms. It can be compared to a life support system that ensures the well-being of everyone. Recent cases of environmental degradation pose a threat to nature and the entire ecosystem. There has been increased awareness to educate individuals on the need to protect our environment with the aim of protecting the natural beauty and sustaining humanity.
People, viewing themselves as a part of nature, can exist as a species only through consumption and destruction of natural resources: even the energy and resources for nature protection people receive by destroying its most important part - the lithosphere. The development of technological progress increased the negative impact on the environment, however, in recent decades there have come certain positive changes in approach toward qualitative improvement in environmental management with successful development of waste-free production, implementation of new technologies to reduce the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere, improvement of soil health, enhancement of crop quality parameters, and etc.
Environmental change is a logical certainty, and progressively a lived human concern. However, it is not yet what everybody should call social-global problem in one voice. It's not an essential almost we shape our social practices, nor a sufficiently huge social standard to go about as an imperative on our conduct. Around the planet there is developing energy to characterize environmental change as a security issue and thus as a motivation topping issue that merits noteworthy consideration and assets. Calls for movement are developing - yet at the same time outlined activities to address the issue has a cost or weight that will hamper business and go about as a drag on the economy.
Nowadays, environmental issues have become the concern of many scholars, both from social and exact sciences. Because the environmental issue itself affect not only the Mother Nature but also human as the social creature that lives within the earth. In the globalization era, there appear many environmental issues, such as the water scarcity, natural disaster, the rising of sea level, and the climate change itself. As we all know that to counter these environmental issues, we can do several actions, such as protecting the
With increase of population and pollution on the earth ,there are numbers of challenges increase to increase productivity against race of time. So it started ruining our earths ecology.For the balancing purpose of nature and human it is must to take care of it.
Environmental issues have been a cause of a lot of debate in the recent past. Governments and nongovernmental organizations have been in constant consultations on how to help protect the environment. Apparently, as a result of man’s many actions, the natural environment is getting torn apart so quickly that the coming generations will not enjoy this kind of environment, unless a
As globalization continues and the earth’s natural processes transform local problems into international issues, few societies are being left untouched by major environmental problems like flooding, global warming, strange death of humans and animals, loss of biodiversity among others. This outcome of the global environmental disasters have produces a bloodstone to the
