Environmental problems

  1. 1. Do you understand these environmental problems?  Drought  Smog  Water pollution  Starvation  Overpopulation  Rain forest destruction  Greenhouse effect  Endangered species  Nuclear meltdown  Desertification
  2. 2. Match the definition on the left to ONE of the problems:  Drought  Smog  Water pollution This is what happens when  Starvation pollutants are discharged into water bodies without adequate  Overpopulation treatment to remove harmful compounds.  Rain forest destruction  Greenhouse effect  Endangered species  Nuclear meltdown  Desertification
