The greatest crime perhaps is the slow murder of the planet. The world has suffered more ecological damage in the past fifty years, than ever before. Oil spills, toxic dumps and nuclear testing, plague the world's resources. The majority of these originating from the world's 'protectors'. The greatest victim of all our wars, is Earth.
I think that the phrase "going green" makes everyone visibly cringe once said. People generally hate hearing the truth about our environment and tend to ignore it, but it 's something worth listening and learning about for many reasons. Each minute at least 51 acres of tropical forests are destroyed, we use almost 35,000 barrels of oil, and we add 12,000 tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Each hour 1,800 children die of hunger and malnutrition, 1,692 acres of productive dry land becomes a desert, and 55 people are poisoned by the pesticides they use. Each day 25,000 people die of water shortage or contamination, ten tons of nuclear waste are being generated, 60 tons of plastic packaging and 372 tons of fishing net is dumped into the
This is extremely unsanitary and utterly dangerous to the population’s health. Drinking polluted water can cause severe nausea, vomiting, cramps and severe diarrhea. Also drinking contaminated water can infect the human body with diseases such as cholera, polio, hepatitis A, dysentery and Amoebiasis. Which left untreated, can be life threatening and easily spread. The country itself produces 40 million liters of sewage every day, and only about 20% of that is treated (source: Centre for Science and Environment; Excreta does matter).
This destruction not only cause health problem, but also be responsible for millions of dollars in lost revenue. Stakeholder:- People organization or groups that have a direct or indirect interest in a one particular organization or surrounding are called stakeholders. Affected Stakeholder:- * BP Oil Company * Government * Local Business * Employees * Wild life * Environment * Shareholder of BP All the above stakeholders impacted by oil spill but differently unfortunately, the oil spilled into the ocean and killing all the fish and wash off the coast spread through rivers, affecting the fishermen and BP company affected by because they need to clean all this was to be able to cover the costs, and bad publicity the oil spill has affected governments w... ... middle of paper ... ...t Feinberg try to reflect on matter. CONCLUSION At the end I come to conclusion that BP was not properly prepared for any disaster like that there risk assessment related to project is very limited and even not considered seriously about it for their own progress and putting live of public and employees in danger by not following the standard SOP of particular project. Even after incident happened they try to close their eyes on reality.
Clearly, this is no ordinary flu. However, I believe that this flu is extraordinary not only in its destructive nature, but in casting a legacy of distrust for science amongst the general populace. In Sierra Leone the flu was brought from Europe and become a deadly epidemic. A report claims that as many as 1,000 individuals had died there in a single week. Furthermore, the shortage of food in the region further execrated the problem.
These viral diseases were threats to humanity and now they are at the same level as a common cold. The plague itself caused 75-200 million deaths. Historically humans could not reach the population count to a billion because they were either fighting each other for land and power or were fighting i... ... middle of paper ... ...atz, Joelle.

The idea of being knocked unconscious and under the knives will naturally make both patient and doctor to try avoiding surgery as much as they could. Before any doctor decides to go with surgery, they will need to weigh the pros and cons of the said surgery on patient’s well-being. Any surgery will have their own level of risk depending on the degree of invasiveness and the organ involved. However, even the safest, minimally invasive surgery can have some complications, whether avoidable or not, later on. Patients undergoing surgery will mostly be given sedative or anaesthesia to make them unconscious.
The harmful effects of these companies were clearly illustrated in the 1960s and 1970s when residents living near Minamata Bay, Japan, developed nervous disorders, tremors, and paralysis in a mysterious epidemic. The root was later found to be a local industry that had released mercury, a highly toxic element, into Minamata Bay. The disaster had claimed the lives of 400 people1. Since 1970 you can bet that a lot more than 400 people have died as a result of waste disposal. If the type of waste disposal were cheaper and effective we wouldn’t have to deal with waste problems, which still plague mankind today.
As pollution continues to grow and become much worse, organizations create new laws to help reduce or end some of the major problems in our seas. Oil Spills disturb the environment and produce a threat to the animals living in that area. Both ships and refineries release oil into the rivers and oceans which leads to the damage and death of plants and animals (Leggett 25). Exxon Valdez, a famous tanker that split in Alaska, spilled eleven million gallons of crude oil into the oceans, damaging everything around it (Earle 145). A Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and released sixty thousand barrels of oil each day (Hollar 20).
In the United States, there 200,000 early deaths annually do to our pollution levels, mainly from pesticides (Chu). The word pesticide in Latin means to kill a curse or bane. Pesticides are everywhere in our lives; they are on our foods, in our soil, in our water, and in the air. Even though they are everywhere, the average person does not know the effects they have on their life and health. The United States is harming people and the environment with the careless use of chemicals and choosing to do nothing about it.
