enviroment In developing countries, 70 percent of industrial wastes is dumped untreated into surface water. Each year in Britain, we throw away 28 million tonnes of rubbish from our homes. This weighs the same as three and a half million double Decker buses. A queue of buses that long would go around the world one and a half times. You can make 20 cans out of recycled material with the same amount of energy it takes to make one new one. The UK produces 420 million tonnes of solid waste every year. That's the weight of 5 cars for each person every year. We only recycle 11% of it. Incinerating 10,000 tonnes of waste creates 1 job, landfill the same amount of waste creates 6 jobs, but recycling the same 10,000 tonnes creates 36 jobs. In just over a week, we produce enough rubbish to fill Wembley stadium. Over half of that waste can be recycled. Every tonne of paper recycled saves 17 trees. Every year in the UK we use 13 billion steel cans which if you placed them end to end, would stretch to the moon - three times The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle is enough to power a light bulb for four hours. Recycling one plastic bottle can save the same amount of energy needed to power a 60-watt light bulb for six hours. We use over six billion glass bottles and jars each year. It would take you over three and a half thousand years to sing "Six Billion Green Bottles"
The Enviroment The environment is really important to us but no one cares about it. If we carry on the way we are global warming will burn a hole in the ozone layer and we will all burn. The facts 1 recycled tin can, can power a television for 3 hours. 1 recycled glass bottle can power a computer for 3 hours. Many people will not like to work in an environment like this, I wouldn’t so why are we doing this to our world. If people knew what little things could do to change, I think they would.

Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into an environment
1 recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours. Up to 80% of a vehicle can be recycled. the environment In the United States, 735 species of plants and 496 species of animals are listed as threatened or endangered.
Pollution can be local or widespread. Substances dumped into a river will often end up in the sea. The biggest pollution problem is global warming. This happens when greenhouse gases, such as CO2 are released into the atmosphere, trapping heat and causing the planet to warm up. Since species are adapted to particular climates, when the Earth warms up they have to move to keep comfortable. Chemical pollutants have been responsible for affecting the reproductive organs of fish, alligators and polar bears, preventing them from producing babies. Trees in the western United States are dying twice as quickly as they did three decades ago and scientists think global warming is to blame. Water pollution affects drinking water, rivers, lakes and oceans all over the world. This consequently harms human health and the natural environment. ‘ People take the world for granted, we don't own this world we are just the lease holders’ People can get diseases like asthma from too much pollution. ‘ Bins are there to be used not just for show. Paths are for walking on not littering.’ Factories are letting out toxic fumes polluting the planet. Sea ice in Canada's Arctic and sub-Arctic regions has been melting rapidly over the past three decades, causing concerns that climate change is speeding this fragile region toward an uncertain future. If thinning continues at its current rate, by 2050 the Arctic Ocean could be completely ice-free in summer. "The fact is that in the last 10-15 years you are getting the records continuously broken of the highest global average temperature. Other incidents which tend to reinforce it are several heat waves in Europe.
The Environment! Reduce Re-use Re-cycle Batteries produce 50 times less energy than it takes to make them! A dripping tap can waste 13 litres of water a day You can make 20 cans out of recycled material with the same amount of energy it takes to make one new one In just over a week, we produce enough rubbish to fill Wembley stadium . We use over six billion glass bottles and jars each year. It would take you over three and a half thousand years to sing "Six Billion Green Bottles"!
The way we treat sewage needs to undergo a revolution on the same scale as we have seen attitudes change to household rubbish and industrial waste. Help us Driving a car is the most polluting act an average citizen commits. Air pollution is not a good idea for a variety of reasons, large and small.
THE ENVIROMENT. BY MOHSAN Pollution became a popular issue after WW2, when the aftermath of atomic warfare and testing made evident the perils of radioactive fallout. Then a conventional catastrophic event The Great Smog of 1952 in London killed at least 8000 people. This massive event prompted some of the first major modern environmental legislation, The Clean Air Act of 1956.
“ Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth.” “ Nature provides a free lunch, but only if we control our appetites “ “ We never know the worth of water till the well is dry “ “ When we heal the earth, we heal ourselves”. “ Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time.” “ The human race will be the cancer of the planet” “ A virgin forest is where the hand of man has never set foot “
Melting away… Any need? Save Our Environment Polar bears are drowning as the ice melts, forcing them to go further for food and failing. The united states produces 25% of global warming. They emit more carbon dioxide than china, India and Japan combined. Global warming is caused by a thickening layer of carbon dioxide pollution that traps heat in the atmosphere. Hurricanes are becoming more intense and dangerous. The number of category 4 and 5 storms has greatly increased over the past 35 years, along with ocean temperature. Heat waves are becoming more intense and dangerous.
The environment! One minute its like nice and everything but then when it comes to seeing factories, all the nice views are just gone. Global warming is making the earth horrible to live in. The more people recycle, then the more chance we have of living a better life.
Individuals account for 45% of this. Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth The UK's carbon footprint is over 500* million tonnes of CO2 per year. The Environment
The natural environment is were all living and non-living this are naturally on earth! “ Don't blow it - good planets are hard to find.” “ We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.” “ They kill good trees to put out bad newspapers.”

The Enviroment UK households produced 30.5 million tonnes of waste in 2003/04, of which 17% was collected for recycling. some recycling over 50% for their waste. There is still a great deal of waste which could be recycled that ends up in landfill sites which is harmful to the environment. 275,000 tonnes of plastic are used each year in the UK that's about 15 million bottles per day.
Don't blow it - good planets are hard to find. ~Quoted in Time "It doesn't make a difference what temperature a room is, it's always room temperature." — Steven Wright "According to a survey in this week's Time magazine, 85% of Americans think global warming is happening. The other 15% work for the White House." — Jay Leno "I didn't get a toy train like the other kids. I got a toy subway instead. You couldn't see anything, but every now and then you'd hear this rumbling noise go by." — Steven Wright The Enviroment - By Ben Foyster
1 Recycled Tin = 3 Hours of TV! 1 Recycled Glass Bottle = 25 Minutes of PC! 1 Recycled Plastic Bottle = Light for 3 Hours (60-watt) 9/10 People Would Recycle More if it Were Made Easier The Environment
