Transcripts - POLLUTION: INDIA AND UAE LAST 5 YEARS

  • 1. “The story of humankind and our relationship to the earth may seen as a continuing advents are tragedy shrouded in mystery, the choice is ours”
  • 2. The Earth as an ecosystem is changing, attributable in great part to the effects of globalization and man. More carbon dioxide is now in the atmosphere than has been in the past 650,000 years. We’ve overloaded the atmosphere with heat-trapping gasses from our cars and factories and power plants. If we don’t start fixing the problem now, we’re in for devastating changes to our environment. We will experience extreme temperatures, rises in sea levels, and storms of unimaginable destructive fury. Recently, alarming events that are consistent with scientific predictions about the effects of climate change have become more and more commonplace.
  • 3. Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either foreign substances/energies or naturally occurring contaminants. Pollution is often classed as point source or nonpoint source pollution.
  • 4. Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, or other harmful materials into the Earth's atmosphere possibly causing disease, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as food crops, or the natural or built environment. The atmosphere is a complex natural gaseous system that is essential to support life on planet Earth.
  • 5. Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater). Water pollution occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water pollution affects plants and organisms living in these bodies of water. In almost all cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and populations, but also to the natural biological communities.
  • 6. Soil contamination or soil pollution is caused by the presence of xenobiotic (human-made) chemicals or other alteration in the natural soil environment. It is typically caused by industrial activity, agricultural chemicals, or improper disposal of waste. The most common chemicals involved are petroleum hydrocarbons, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (such as naphthalene and benzo a pyrene), solvents, pesticides, lead, and other heavy metals.
  • 7. Noise pollution is the disturbing or excessive noise that may harm the activity or balance of human or animal life. The source of most outdoor noise worldwide is mainly caused by machines and transportation systems, motor vehicles, aircraft, and trains. Outdoor noise is summarized by the word environmental noise. Poor urban planning may give rise to noise pollution, since side-by-side industrial and residential buildings can result in noise pollution in the residential areas.
  • 8. Light pollution, also known as photo pollution or luminous pollution, is excessive, misdirected, or obtrusive artificial light. Pollution is the adding-of/added light itself, in analogy to added sound, carbon dioxide, etc. Adverse consequences are multiple; some of them may not be known yet.
  • 9. There are many environmental issues in India. Air pollution, water pollution, garbage, and pollution of the natural environment are all challenges for India. The situation was worse between 1947 through 1995. According to data collection and environment assessment studies ofWorld Bank experts, between 1995 through 2010, India has made one of the fastest progress in the world, in addressing its environmental issues and improving its environmental quality.
  • 10. India has major water pollution issues. Discharge of untreated sewage is the single most important cause for pollution of surface and ground water in the India. There is a large gap between generation and treatment of domestic waste water in the India. The problem is not only that India lacks sufficient treatment capacity but also that the sewage treatment plants that exist do not operate and are not maintained.
  • 11. The Supreme Court of India gave a significant verdict on noise pollution in 2005.Unnecessary honking of vehicles makes for a high decibel level of noise in cities. The use of loudspeakers for political purposes and for sermons by temples and mosques makes noise pollution in residential areas worse. In January 2010, Government of India published norms of permissible noise levels in urban and rural areas.
  • 12. In March 2009, the issue of Uranium poisoning in Punjab attracted press coverage. It was alleged to be caused by fly ash ponds of thermal power stations, which reportedly lead to severe birth defects in children in the Faridkot and Bhatinda districts of Punjab. The uranium levels were more than 60 times the maximum safe limit. In 2012, the Government of India confirmed that the ground water in Malwa belt of Punjab has uranium metal that is 50% above the trace limits set by the United Nations' World Health Organization.
  • 13. Air pollution in UAE is mainly caused by around 2 million road users and factories in Emirates of Sharjah, Dubai, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain. The rise in UAE’s economy showed a rise in migrants mainly from. The rise in population also showed rise in all kind of vehicle and fuel sale. The high use of fuel caused Air pollution in Urban and Industrial areas. But comparing to other countries UAE’s air pollution index is moderate.
  • 14. The road users in UAE also cause noise pollution in residential and urban areas. Also the machineries used for construction in residential areas distract people of their sleep and daily activities. The construction machineries and industrial machineries used for production cause very high noise disrupting people of their activities. Many organizations in UAE have taken measures to curb noise pollution.
  • 15. The water usage in UAE has increased during the last 5 years. The UAE government takes measures to clean the water bodies and protect them. The water bodies in UAE are maintained clean with help and co-operation of the residents of UAE. The government also punishes those who pollute the water bodies. The UAE government and many organizations have taken steps to curb wastage of water.
  • 16. With the development of urban areas and residential areas, the government setup street lights for the residents and road users comfort. The large no. of street lights saw a rise in light pollution in many parts of UAE. The light pollution in UAE is high comparing to many countries. The government encourage the practice of using green energy. For this the Masdar city in Abu Dhabi which only uses green energy.
