The dilemma in this situation is that high-powered engines use higher amounts of fuel, which emit toxins that pollute the air, which is a contributing factor to global warming. The pollution is a negative effect on air quality. Thus, building these cars is good for producers and fun consumers, but bad for society. Nuclear plants also have a micro-macro dilemma. While used to generate electricity from nuclear fuel, opponents of nuclear plants feel it poses many threats to people and the environment.
How the contamination affects the world is amazing, but it is even more amazing seem that there is people who do not care about it. Moreover there is no doubt that excessive levels of pollution are causing a lot of damage to the environment. But, there is no single cause of the contamination; on the contrary it is caused by humans in different ways such as the industrialization, the population growth and damage to the natural resources. The industrialization is the first fundamental cause of pollution. The main polluter in the world is nowadays the industry.
1. Environment – The surroundings and influences on living things including humans. In my opinion the most environmental issue today is the climate change due to pollution and growing population around the world and the impact they have on the climate, seasons and changes to the planet earth. Worldwide the population is growing and as a result for creating more living space nature has to give away. Nowadays the urban population is larger than the rural population and growing cities are using rural space to expand, sacrificing natural habitats.
Presently, pessimism prevails. Many feel that the technology solutions created by an industrial economy to improve human well being has led to insurmountable environmental degradation. As coal and oil technologies reach an inevitable peak in production, unanticipated and uncontrollable consequences of their abuse are becoming more pronounced in natural systems not long after their introduction as the economic life vein. Even so, pushes for new technological development have emerged to counteract the damage already done and optimism remains to reverse their effects on the environment through innovation. As explained by Paul Gray, therein lies a technological paradox, that environmental deterioration is brought about by the industrial economy, but the progression of this industrial economy is and will be the road to successful environmental stewardship (Ausubel, 1989).
Owing to the development of industry and the use of fossil fuels, the amount of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere has produced and the average global temperature seems to have risen. What’s more, deforestation can affect climate changes. The growing of trees and plants can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere because of photosynthesis, however, deforestation lead to carbon dioxide emissions. Both of these can lead to global warming of the atmosphere. The report (UNEPWMO, 2004, P10) also pointed out, the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation are altering the composition of the atmosphere and contributing to climate change.
There are many environmental ethical issues being studied today. One of the major issues is global warming. Global warming is said to have many negative effects on the environment. Global warming has been studied for a while now. I will be covering the aspects, causes and effects of Global Warming.
The cause of these could be over-consumption or prices rising at oil refineries. As a result of this an emergency may arise during cold winters due to increased consumption of energy. Another possible reason for an energy crisis globally could be, as to speak, smaller problems such as pipeline failures and other accidents. Infrastructure damage through severe weather could also cause a crisis. Attacks by terrorists or rebels on important infrastructure and pipelines are a big problem for energy consumers.
It is my conviction that pollution is not only traced to industrial waste but also household activities. Therefore, citizens should not hold the government environmentally responsible but share the burden of these issues with their administration. A large amount of garbage scientifically proved to derive more from households, not only form big factories. Take, for instance, the case of marine damages which is in a large degree is due to chemicals without any handling treatment from factories, but household wastes form families and the habit of scattering litter directly into the sea and rivers also contribute to the problem. Hence, simple manners such as putting the garbage into the bins or classifying them into categories are highly evaluated as the contribution to reduce environmental devastation.
Global warming has been an issue since factories were introduced to this world; gases and toxins are being highly exposed into our atmosphere causing a tremendous reaction to the balance of nature. This is where one ecological system cannot function without the other throwing off the equilibrium in the world, and causes bad weather patterns. Scientists since 1970 have been warning the government that automobiles and factories are emitting a high level of
They lose their habitat and forced to move to new location; besides, many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes. It is undeniable that deforestation itself has extreme effect on Global warming and hurts the air. Global warming means that air and ocean temperature is increasing. Greenhouse gases exist primarily because of human activity. Unfortunately, humans are the most polluting species on the planet.
