Photo Credit: Wenbin Qian @ Flickr CC BY SA 2.0 Carlos Yeh Pollution In the area surrounding Formosa Plastics Corp's Sixth Naphtha Cracker Complex there has been a 30-percent rise in liver cancer cases and an 80-percent jump in the overall number of cancer cases. Studies showed that concentrations of eight heavy metals — vanadium, cadmium, man- ganese, nickel, arsenic, chromium, mercury and thallium — are higher. (NTU Professor Chan Chang-chuan, 2009, 2015)
  7. 7. DAMAGES Photo Credit: Yunlin County Government Carlos Yeh Yunlin Country, where Formosa Plastics is located, is an area in the heart of Taiwan's bread basket, with agricul- tural output of US$2.2 billion in 2014. In the past, eager to develop its economy, the Taiwanese gov- ernment ignored the environmental costs, and overestimated the short-term economic benefits of industrial development. Pollution from industrial manufacturing has caused long-term damage to the environment and impacted agricultural output.

  10. 10. MY OPINION "Land Ethics" is something we need to seriously consider since industrial pollution, pesticide residue, soil acid- ification and ground subsidence are having an enormous impact on the natural environment and agricultur- al production. When we take into account severe pollution, we can envision a future where the land is no longer able to support us. Land Ethic is a way to rethink how we coexist with the earth. Carlos Yeh
