Assignment 3: Environmental Issues and the Industrial Revolution * Identify three of the most environmentally negative impacts of the Industrial Revolution and justify your choices. Air Pollution: According to the reading Hiwarale, 2015, said, “The pollution that has resulted from factories involves not only airborne emissions but land and water pollution as well. The primary issue resulting from pollution and carbon emissions is that of global warming. As the temperature rises, the glaciers are melting and oceans are rising. 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.
“The way we perceive and handle issues of life affect our destiny as social beings”. (Chesnay & Anderson, pp.551). Long Island is considered a vulnerable community because of the risk that its 1,419,369 residents are facing with insecurity and the risk of developing lung diseases.

Environmental Risk Perception Paper Cathy Lint PSY/460 04-15-14 Michael McKellip, Ph.D. \ Environmental risks include technologies and pollution for both nature and humans that have lasting negative consequences. The perceptions in general are climate changes, individual behaviors from certain activities and environmental hazards that delay temporarily and are often distant in industrial countries. The subjective risks certain technology, activities and events have on individuals and how to deal with changing these events have opened up many doors in the field of psychology. According to Sundstrome (1996), six themes have been identified in the advancement of environmental psychology: multiple theories, field research, cumulative knowledge, applied orientation, interdisciplinary collaboration and cross-cultural focus led to many advances in the field. Individual ethics, morals, values and influences in an environment may influence what is considered an environmental risk.
Finally, Mexico having many attractions as it does, tourists are now being deterred because of the pollution problem. Mexico must improve its air emissions standards for the well-being of the nation.

The piece “Work Related Distress- a Real Increase in Ill Health?” was constructed using the survey/interview research design method (1). The information gathered and used to form the results of this study was gathered from The Occupational Health Decennial for National Statistics and Health and Safety. Also used for further interpretation and correlation were several other studies cited in the article (1). While the survey method is an excellent tool to gather large amounts of information, there are some weaknesses. One weakness of this method is in the difficulty of controlling for the population that you want to research (1).
