POLLUTION:  CAUSES & REMEDIES

THE CONTENTS OF THIS PAGE

PEDAGOGIC SUGGESTIONS

 

<>()<>

TABLE-1: PROBLEMS CAUSED BY POLLUTION

AIR POLLUTION

ACID RAIN

GLOBAL WARMING

CONTRIBUTARY FACTORS TO ILLNESS

  • Aircraft exhaust (in particular close to Ozone layer)
  • Vehicle Exhaust
  • TFTs (fridges, etc.)
  • Smoke from fires

 

  • Air Pollution
  • Atomic testing in the atmosphere, etc.

 

  • See Air Pollution
  • Loss of rain-forests

 CARCINOGENIC (cancer-causing)

  • exhaust from diesel fuels
  • exhaust from catalytic converters
  • smoke

 

ASTHMA

  • air pollution
  • benzoic acid
  • carbonated drinks

BRAIN DAMAGE IN UNBORN BABIES

o        exhaust from leaded petrol

RESULT

  • Global warming
  • Smog
  • Fog
  • Breathing problems
  • Haze blocks sunís heat, giving impression of global cooling which disguises the extent of global warming
  • Haze blocks sunís  exchange of energy with us, which helps living creatures & plants to metabolize  vitamin D, chlorophyll, etc.

RESULT

  • Damaged buildings
  • Possibly affects drinking water
  • Possibly affects water- dwelling creatures

RESULT

  • Melting of icebergs
  • increased sea levels leading to flooding (Norfolk coast, Carteret Islands)
  • Extra heavy rainfalls, leading to flooding, mud slides
  • Gulf Stream under threat
  • Loss of species
  • Temperature rises in hot countries
  • Serious Drought in dry countries
  • Water shortages in countries which had surplus water

 POLLUTED OCEANS & DISORIENTED SEA MAMMALS

  • Chemical waste outlets from factories, etc.
  • Dumping at sea
  • Sewage outlets

 

 

 

 

DAMAGED SEA CREATURES

  • Propellers from boats
  • Pollution dumping (chemicals, etc.)
  • Over-fishing
  • Loss of barrier reefs
  • Damaged sea-beds
  • Underwater testing of explosives
  • underwater use of ULF frequencies
  • global warming, leading to change of sea temperatures
  • la NiŮa

TABLE-2 

POSITIVE SUGGESTIONS TO REDUCE AIR POLLUTION,

TO REPAIR THE HOLE IN THE OZONE LAYER

& TO LOWER THE RISK OF SKIN CANCER

CAUSE

SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS

More damage is done by planes, than by cars in creating the greenhouse effect, because they actually expel copious exhaust fumes close to the ozone layer. I cannot be the only one to realize this. Have these facts been kept under wraps for commercial reasons? Globalization & commercialism have a lot to answer for. The policy to build additional runways and increase air-traffic pollution, whilst reducing road traffic pollution is difficult to comprehend.

  • Planes (private & commercial) should either be taxed per length of plane journey, or per day.  (A special air-pollution charge might already be the case; if so, it should be increased, so cheap air-travel is a thing of the past). 
  • Additional runways & airports should NOT be built
  • Airlines should be encouraged to restrict weekly usage to 1-2 days less than usual
  • The ideal solution would be for all air-travel (including military use, but excluding rescue helicopters in real emergencies) to be stopped for a year.  After 9/11, air travel was stopped in the US & people, who reside near airports, commented on the lack of noise & air pollution

o        The worst damage to the ozone layer, is done by space-craft & rockets delivering satellites, which actually force their way through the ozone layer.

o        Damage to the atmosphere & stratosphere in the past has also been due to nuclear testing, which has left increased concentration of beryllium7

  • All space travel should be halted until the ozone layer has repaired itself. 
  • TV & spy satellites abound already, many of which are under-used. These should be utilized more efficiently. No more should be launched until the ozone layer has improved.

Developing countries are allowed to create industrial pollution, despite the damage it is doing, so they can produce ridiculously-cheap goods for western nations.  The underlying culprit is commercialism and globalisation.

  • No country should be allowed to create industrial pollution
  • Westerners must be made aware of the real cost of cheap goods from developing countries (in human terms & the levels of pollution, etc.) & the West must be made to care.
  • Developing countries should be encouraged to use their traditional methods to produce goods.   Any developing country, which does so, should become a World Heritage site, helped by wealthier countries in a positive way.  Developing countries should have modern cities if they wish, but the countryside, the wildlife, the culture and the diversity must be treasured and maintained
  • Fair trade prices should be paid to them & the western world should stop taking advantage of their poverty, but should treasure their cultural heritage.

The racing of cars, motorbikes, mini-bikes, all-terrain vehicles, etc. also add to air pollution.

  • An air pollution tax should be introduced for such vehicles during practice runs & races.

Bonfires & firework displays cause huge smoke clouds and the following day is usually overcast and drab as a result.

  • Bonfires should be discouraged
  • Firework displays should be licensed for safety & to control numbers of fireworks
  • Sales to individuals should be banned

Traffic Congestion, Air Pollution, Global Warming & The Ozone Layer

   

  • We all have a responsibility towards our planet.  

  • Few realize the full implications of our actions and this applies when we create pollution.  

  • The initial resentment and public debate will raise long-term awareness if a pollution tax is imposed

  • The sun cannot send and receive energy, if a polluted haze blocks the sun's rays from reaching Earth properly

  • The Earth's wobbly orbit could be the result of air pollution and our important link with the sun being inadequate

PEDAGOGIC SUGGESTION

SUBJECT FOR DEBATE

 Could increased negative energy, pollution and loss of vegetation and wildlife be responsible for Earth's changing orbit?  

I believe it is.  Bibi Baxter - April 2007
