City Road is one of the busiest streets in Cardiff and is an excellent example of the wide variety of life in a city today. Despite City Road being a multi-cultural society, there are many inequalities which exist. The term ‘inequality’ refers to “the unequal distribution of valued social resources within a society or between societies.” (Blakeley et al., 2012, p. 26). Throughout this essay I will explore factors such as the structure of City Road, parking and traffic congestion, local businesses and people’s perceptions and their role in becoming inequalities. The way City Road is structured does not reflect its society to a maximum.

This has many detrimental effects on human as well on animal health. Demand of homes increased significantly because of which land is becoming scarce.

Richard Lopez Mrs. Chaffin English.60A Nov. 15, 2013 “Air Pollution in Mexico” Being a nation with over one hundred million residents, Mexico has come into spotlight with the recent concerns over the pollution and all the problems it causes.

More animal species are becoming endangered or extinct as a result of global warming.” “The carbon emissions, pollution and human health problems that have resulted directly from the Industrial Revolution’s accomplishments have only been disastrous for the world environment. For example the increase of the production in the textile industry, iron and steel and the steam power. As a result, many people died cause of too much smoke spread in the air. Another example according to the reading, air and water pollution came from coal burning, as well as most stages in the production of metals and basic chemicals. Moreover, “The advent of the steam locomotive and railroad also saw the start of major pollution caused by big business, which is all too often seen today.
Traffic jams are inevitable and inextricable in cities of Vietnam because of the infrastructure, the government’s control and the burdens placed on traffic by the population. The population is increasing so the vehicle is increasing. But the road is still tiny for a huge amount of vehicle. It not enough space for everyone, and then you has it, traffic jam.

The most general problems that was focused on in each city was poor air quality, decreased water supply, poor quality of the existing water supply, and lack of sewage treatment facilities. The problems with water supply and air quality were introduced into these countries by automobiles and factories. Automobiles and factories were initially introduced to give the cities inhabitants’ better financial opportunities. Governing officials in the mega cities were not prepared to deal with the negative consequences of expanding their cities so rapidly.
The environmental issue is too complex to be handled by the individual. The perennial debate is whether corporate action by governments and companies can solve some of the most persistent ecological crises or whether responsibility and power to do something rests with the individual. Environmental problems can only be solved by individual action. First, air pollution can only be solved when people start creating demand for fossil fuel. Many are quick to blame large coal plants, especially when cleaner alternatives exist, for the massive amounts of smog and greenhouse gases suffocating our planet.
