Transcripts - pollution (environmental issue)

  • 1. 1) is the introduction of contaminants into the environment that cause harm or discomfort to humans or other living organisms, or that damage the environment 2) Any use of natural resources at a rate higher than nature's capacity to restore itself can result in pollution of air, water, and land (www. Tropical- Rainforest- Animals.com)

  • 3. Fundamental Pollution Drivers
  • 4. Fundamental Pollution Drivers • Industrialization, set in motion the widespread use of fossil fuels (oil, gas & coal) which are now the main sources of pollution. • Population growth, with population numbers literally exploding around the world, the demand for food and other goods goes up. • Globalization, become an effective facilitator of environmental degradation. Developing countries usually have much looser laws on environmental protection. (www. Tropical- Rainforest- Animals.com)
  • 5. Primary and Secondary Causes of Pollution (www. Tropical- Rainforest- Animals.com)
  • 6. Production - primary cause of pollution because the whole cycle of extracting and processing natural resources and then selling processed goods starts from this point Consumption - the secondary cause of pollution because this stage comes after, and depends on, production

  • 13. Types of Pollution
  • 14. Types of Pollution • Air pollution which is generally in the form of a gas emitted by factories, power plants, automobiles, etc. such as the familiar greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide and methane but can also include particulate matter such as is the case with asbestos or biological matter that could be released into the air.
  • 15. Types of Pollution • Water Pollution involves any contaminated water, whether from chemical, particulate, or bacterial matter that degrades the water's quality and purity. It can occur in oceans, rivers, lakes, and underground reservoirs, and as different water sources flow together the pollution can spread.
  • 16. Types of Pollution • Land/ Soil Pollution contamination of the soil that prevents natural growth and balance in the land whether it is used for cultivation, habitation, or a wildlife preserve. Some soil pollution, such as the creation of landfills, is deliberate, while much more is accidental and can have widespread effects
  • 17. Types of Pollution • Noise Pollution refers to undesirable levels of noises caused by human activity that disrupt the standard of living in the affected area • Light Pollution makes it impossible to see stars, therefore interfering with astronomical observation and personal enjoyment
  • 18. Other Types of Pollution • Thermal Pollution • Visual Pollution • Radioactive Pollution • Personal Pollution • Space Pollution
