Air Pollution

Air Pollution
Is the air that we are breathing killing us? In this speech, you will learn all that you need to know about air pollution. First, I will give you the causes of air pollution, then I will list the effects of it, and finally I will tell you how we can prevent air pollution.
The average person takes about twenty thousand breaths a day, obviously, air is essential to life. Well imagine that the air that you are breathing may be killing you, many diseases are aggravated by air pollution. Scientists believe that all cities with populations exceeding 50,000 have some degree of air pollution. Burning garbage in open dumps causes air pollution, and it smells bad. Air pollution comes from many different sources. One of the major sources is carbon monoxide, which manly comes from automobiles, but also burning of fossil fuels, CFCs etc. Air pollution does not leave the Earth it all gets trapped up in the atmosphere. This does not bother most people, and they think that it will not harm them. People burn down forests and people burn fossil fuels









Pollution and the Environment

Pollution and the Environment
Pollution and the Environment Pollution occurs when harmful substances or products are introduced into the environment. It is a major problem in America, as well as the rest of the world. Pollution damages the environment and does harm to humans and other animals. It creates many problems, from lung cancer to the greenhouse effect. Oblivious to the damage they cause, rednecks continue to throw trash out of the window instead of walking two feet to a garbage can. The laziness of these types of people creates problems for the entire planet. People must realize that something needs to change. Why does our world continue to become more polluted year after year?









Water Pollution: Problem Caused by Household Chemicals and Waste

Water Pollution: Problem Caused by Household Chemicals and Waste
My topic in this research paper is water pollution, which is one of the biggest problems that we have to face nowadays. Water pollution is a change in the chemical or physical condition of the water that impairs man?s enjoyment of water. Looking at the water is the only human use that allows water to be returned to the stream or lake unchanged in quantity or quality









Garbage in its Place

There is nothing worse than seeing garbage blowing down the street of your neighborhood, or finding broken shards of glass at the local swimming hole where children play. Wildlife is just as vulnerable to garbage and many have lost their lives after becoming tangled in waste or mistaking garbage for food. It is up to each of us to make an effort to minimize this unsightly, and sometimes hazardous, problem.









How New York City's Sewage and Garbage is Treated

How New York City's Sewage and Garbage is Treated
You ever wonder where the stuff you flush down the toilet goes? Or where the water goes after you brush your teeth? Or what?s under those manholes that has sewage written on it? What happens when you throw wasted in the garbage? You probably don?t but all of the content that is discarded throughout the day gets sent to a sewage plant through the pluming system that is connected to your house. There are sewage plants located throughout New York City. One of these plants that I visited is located under Riverbank State Park.









Ideas for a Research Paper on Air Pollution

Ideas for a Research Paper on Air PollutionDo you know what is common between smog, carbon monoxide, and acid rain? Well, these are all examples of air pollution. The problem of air pollution is being discussed all over the world and this topic is one of the most burning. We may continue discussing this issue, but now it is your turn to say a few words about it in your research paper on air pollution.









Garbage, Recycling, and Waste Management

Garbage, Recycling, and Waste Management
There are already ways of getting rid of garbage so people won?t have to see it or smell it. For example there is incineration, in which trash that can?t be recycled is burned. Although this meets the requirements mentioned above it has a downside. The burning itself causes waste and eventually it will have a bad effect on the environment. Recycling is a good process that reuses materials so they won?t be wasted and cause waste. But many products are not recyclable, like plastics.









Water Pollution is a Threat to the World

Water Pollution is a Threat to the World
Water pollution is a global plague that affects the people, animals, and plants. These life forms need water to survive. The causes are contributed greatly by the human population. Recently, laws have been passed to protect the precious drinking waters. Although they are in effect, most are ignored or loop holes have been found by major corporations so the can still ?legally? dump harmful waste near water supplies. There are several factors that causes water pollution. One of the reasons that the water pollution problem is so severe is that it is not actually illegal to dump pollutants into water bodies. Sewage, sludge, garbage, and even toxic pollutants are all dumped into the water. Often, governments either do not care or simply look the other way. Across the world, about half of all sewage is dumped into water bodies in its original form.









The Importance of Recycling

The Importance of Recycling
Recycling is an important project everyone should be part of. If we do not recycle many landfills where we put garbage will be filled up faster and we will use more of our natural resources to make the products we could have made from recycled material.
My entire life people have been standing over my shoulder making sure I am recycling everything possible. In high school we had huge recycling bins all over the entire school. Down every hall there was a regular garbage can, a garbage can for pop cans, and a bin for paper products and glass bottles. It was important to everyone that garbage was disposed of in the proper places. First of all we have all been taught that this was the appropriate thing to do and secondly out of common courtesy. We knew that our janitors would take the time to move cans and glass bottles from the wrong trash bins to the correct ones.









Efficiency Equals Reduction

Imagine that if at the grocery store the person bagging your purchases left empty, unused spaces in each bag causing you to carry 10 instead of 5 bags out to your car then into your home. You would be investing some extra time, energy and space when it was unnecessary. Now transfer that thought to the waste and recycling industry. Instead of filling a trash bag or bin with large empty spaces, we can all do some simple acts to help...
