At the start of the 1970’s, shops began to move and spread away from the CBD to areas on the outskirts of the city. This was due to reasons such as high city rents and taxes and the inability to expand services. Out of the city land is much cheaper, as is rent, for example the yearly rent for a mere metre square of land on Oxford Street, London is £4400, where as in Meadowhall, Sheffield, it is only £217. As the growth of suburbs increase, retailers and companies are in effect, chasing their money, relocating to the rural urban fringe to gain the new community’s wealth. The increase in road building has meant easy routes from the urban centre to out of the city, making new supermarkets and shopping facilities out of the city more
The number of people behind bars has grown substantially in many countries over the past 20 years.” (para. 9). Better policing can also be attributed to the decline in crime rates as evidence of the growing prison population. According to Mitchell (2010), "In Denver, 30 of the 2009 murders — almost 80 percent — have been solved, according to Mary Dulacki, records coordinator for Denver police.” Per a Denver Police spokesperson, another factor in the reduction of murders is the improvements with emergency medical treatment and services. First responders are able to save more lives than in the past (Mitchell, 2010).
Is the use of flood plains inevitable in dealing with urban growth? Due to high demands for housing in certain areas, building on flood plains has become more common. A floodplain is part of a valley which floods regularly as a river bursts its banks. This has caused much disruption to many properties as flooding is becoming a regular occurrence in places such as Doncaster, Hull and Worcester. However the demand for affordable housing is still increasing, therefore building on floodplains is an obvious answer to this problem because they are cheap and have little agricultural value so the government are continuing to do so.
However, as the cities’ expanse, China’s urban population is growing rapidly, so the public health problem increase seriously, and it has become a big issue in China. Gong et al. (2012) argues that the largest human migration happened in China during the past 30 years, and the urban population grew from191 million in 1981 to 622 million in 2009—the rural-to-urban migration is the most important reason (p. 843). With
Those gases can spread locally or at big distances contaminating big areas. Besides of the air, industries often contaminate water and land of the surrounding areas. In fact, Industrialization is the cause of most contamination in the world. The second fundamental pollution cause is population growth. Lots of people means over crowded places.
Portsmouth has the highest population density of any city in Europe, estimated at 5100 people per square mile. This presents a number of problems for the city. Lack of space is a major one, and with minimal space available for construction of properties, the cost of housing is on the increase. This poses problems for low income families, who will struggle to afford to live close to the CBD. Congestion is another problem which has stemmed from overpopulation Portsmouth is a middle upper income area, and as a result the majority of the population own a car, giving Portsmouth

There are many things that cause global warming but one of the primary causes is cars and trucks on the road every day and all day and never ceases. It has been over a century gasoline powered cars have made it easy for us to get around but it's time for a change with the growing need of supply and demand, we need to start finding other resources to power our vehicles, therefore, is natural gas powered cars better than hybrid cars? By driving more efficient vehicles, oil imports can be cut, money can be saved, jobs can be created, and it will help with global warming. With gas prices on the rise up, wouldn't you want to save money just by using more efficient cars, such as, the hybrid or the electric automobiles? Hybrid electric vehicles combined with more than one power source offer additional flexibility to improve the fuel economy and to reduce pollutant emissions.
But with the growth of social and economic development, horses could no longer meet all the growing needs of man. Time to man became increasingly valuable tool around which life was in full swing. Life becomes more rapid. Thus, with the invention of automobile, people have learned to save their time. In addition, with appearance of the car, it began to change and the environment, for example, roads started to be paved, and with new roads started to appear new profession that watching over these roads, later appeared traffic lights, gas stations, parking lots, etc.
Reasons for the economic boom in the 1920s America experienced an economic boom after World War 1 ended because of many different factors. There was a rapid increase in industry and this caused many more people, including women to become employed and to earn their own money. Many new industries were created in the 1920s; one of the rapidly increasing industries was the car industry. Henry Ford revolutionised the production of cars by creating mass production. This meant that people had one specific job on the production line that they repeated over and over so they became very good at this one job, this meant that the T-ford model could be produced every 10 seconds.
