Avoiding exposure Bisphenol A, or BPA, is a chemical found in many hard plastics that we use every day. Higher doses have been linked to infertility and other health problems.
Environment consists of all living and non living things which surround us. Therefore the basic components of the environment are: Atmosphere or the air 2. Hydrosphere or the water 3. Lithosphere or the rocks and soil 4.
The biosphere Environment influence and shaped our life. It is from the environment that we get food to eat, water to drink, air to breathe and all necessities of day to day life are available from our environment. Thus it is the life support system. It is now universally realised that any future developmental activities have to be viewed in the light of its ultimate environmental impact.
The tremendous increase in industrial activity during the last few decades and the release of obnoxious industrial wastes in to the environment, have been considerable concern in recent years from the point of view of the environmental pollution.
Environmental pollution on one hand and deforestation, soil erosion, population explosion, global warming inference in ecosystem and biosphere on the other are threatening the very existence of life on the earth.
According to ManTech environmental science attempts to solve the major environmental problems with the help of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches i. Because, Multidisciplinary Nature of Environmental Studies.
Resource Recovery, Waste Disposal and Treatment. Energy Crisis and Non-conventional Sources. Ethics, Behavioral Science and Literature. Management Science and Environmental Law. Atmospheric, Ocean and Space Science. Meteorology and Telecommunication environmental science is a subject which draws heavily from environmental biology, but depends more on transdisciplinary approach.
Since, ecology, environmental biology and environmental science cannot be defined without reference to environment; they show too much overlapping which is inevitable and unavoidable.
Environment is responsible for creating conditions suitable for the existence of a healthy biosphere on this planet. The load of pollutant discharged is also diluted and chemically modified.
It regulates the temperature on earth where life activities are possible. Harmful ultraviolet radiations are absorbed in the stratosphere by the vital ozone layer. These rays can severely damage the terrestrial life.
The atmosphere of our environment is a quick and effective media for transfer, transport and dissemination of gaseous wastes. There are some natural and spontaneous process in our environments, by which we get plentiful supply of clean, air, fresh water and fertile soils, which rerate endlessly by biogeochemical cycles.
Our planet which is rich in biodiversity have millions of species including beautiful, intriguing, towering trees and other coral nets where all types of animals live together. Insects, bacteria, virus and other organisms are one hand harmful somewhere but very helpful on the other.
Environmental Science Environmental Hazards December 6, Environmental hazards can have many effects to one’s health. It has the potential to threaten the surroundings of a natural environment and harmfully affect people’s health. Environment consists of all living and non living things which surround us. Therefore the basic components of the environment are: 1. Atmosphere or the air 2. Hydrosphere or the water 3. Lithosphere or the rocks and soil 4. The biosphere Environment influence and shaped our life. It is from the. Agricultural waste: Fertilizers and pesticides used in agriculture are key causes of environmental pollution. Also read: Sources of Water, Air and Soil Pollution. Effect. Environmental Pollution can have devastating effects on sea life, on crops and on human health. It affects all plant, human and animal life in .
For example, pollination, regeneration etc. Since life is dependable upon the environment, its absence causes many adverse and harmful effects. Many countries are facing the problems of environmental pollutions. Without sustainable environment and natural resources, one cannot survive.
Over-exploitation of natural resources and pollution of environment are corroding the vital life support systems on which all life depends. Air, water, soil, noise, marine pollutions, food adulterations, decreasing agricultural land, extinction of various plants of mammals global warming etc.
The future of entire humanity is at stake. Instead of these some environmental problems are also there like, solid waste management mining impact, impacts of hydro-electric projects effects of nuclear hazards and effects of industrial effluents.
These problems should also have some solutions, because their effects are very dangerous. Modern technologies should be developed to reduce the pollution at every step. Environmental studies is very important for getting clean drinking water, hygienic living conditions, clean and fresh air, fertile land, healthy food etc.Environmental pollution is happening in many parts of the world, especially in the form of air and water pollution.
The best examples for air pollution are some of the cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Kanpur, and Cuttack and the burning example for water pollution is the highly polluted water of the Ganga River in our country.
11 thoughts on “ My Climate Change ” Frank Mancuso February 19, at am. Seems to me that no matter how we feel about our planet or eloquently write about what we know is happening to it nothing of any significance changes.
The Occupational Outlook Handbook is the government's premier source of career guidance featuring hundreds of occupations—such as carpenters, teachers, and veterinarians.
Revised every 2 years, the latest version contains employment projections for the decade. Environmental pollution can be classified as Air Pollution, Water Pollution Land Pollution. Radiation Pollution, Noise Pollution. All these lead to a number of health hazards.
"The World Health Organization defines air pollution as the presence of materials in the air that are harmful to man and his environment. Browse by Topic.
