Safety of the people could be secured through banning water bottles. For ever water bottle made, non-renewable resources are wasted to produce an unnecessary luxury. For the bottled water Americans enjoy, seventeen million barrels of oil are used (excluding transportation), which could fuel more than 1.3 million cars for a year. Most water is imported and exported from places that are thousands of miles away, like Fiji. Although oil is controversial in nature, for every one liter of water produced, three liters are used; the excess water wasted can supply clean water to the world’s poorest countries.
Access to clean water is a fundamental human right. It has been implicitly and explicitly supported by international law and governmental practice. Nonetheless, 20% of the world’s population lacks safe drinking water and access to qualified purification systems. Safe drink water is defined as water with microbial, chemical and physical characteristics that meet the World Health Organization guidelines or national standards on drinking water quality. According to the Journal of Water and Health, an estimated one billion persons in low-income countries do not have access to safe or clean drinking water.
. The Ganges is still only one of thousands of other extremely polluted rivers, some of which are here in the United States. Water is the most important resource on our planet. The causes of not protecting will be very dire because, water like most things on this planet isn’t endless. We must conserve the drops of precious water we have and protect it, because at the end of the day we can’t afford not to protect it.
Approximately 85 million bottles of water are consumed daily in the world. In fact, Americans now drink more bottled water than they do both milk and beer. Twenty years ago, most people would have laughed at the idea if someone had told them that people would pay to buy bottles of water everywhere, when they could get it for free from their tap at home or from public water fountains. Now, however, the bottled water industry is $16 billion a year industry. The need for bottled water in the beginning was based on health reasons.
The living standards are very poor and there is not a proper health care system in Nigeria. The GDP of Nigeria is $448.1 Billion ad per capita income is $2720 (World Bank). More than 75% people in Nigeria live in extreme poverty while small elite group of corrupt government officials profit greatly and live a lavish lifestyle better than many of the European countries. Nigeria was under British Rule from 1900-1960 till the time it got its independence. Before the colonist they use to live in their own areas with their own cultures and leaders but after the Britishers arrived, they starting ruling over them using the Divide and Rule policy (CITATION).
Introduction on Water It covers 70% of our planet, makes up 75% of our body, it is necessary for survival and it is declining at a rapid rate (http://www.sscwd.org). It is water. Unfortunately, clean water is rare, almost 1 billion people in developing countries do not have access to water everyday. “Yet, we take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles” (The Water Project). Use of earth’s natural resources should be seen as prosperity, although it is taken for granted, every aspect of daily life revolves around the environment, forcing water conservation to be necessary for future on this planet.
As a local Haitian resident, health has always been a concern. To summarize the shortcomings of the health care system in Haiti, the life expectancy for the average male is sixty-two and sixty-six for the average female (World Health Organization, 2015). As well, the probability of dying between the ages of fifteen and sixty is 24.2%, this is an incredibly high percentage that is making a great impact on the country’s well-being. It is obvious to say that there is an inadequate health care system. Many people in communities rely on non-government organizations (NGOs) because the country lacks “a sustainable system of private and public financing to cover operational costs and to grow a network of public health care facilities” (USAID, 2016).
It also compares the problem of air pollution with other cities in the world. With a PM10 of 33 and a PM2.5 of 17, air pollution levels in Nairobi are regarded as moderate. Main Pollutants in Nairobi As the largest and the fastest growing town in Kenya and the country’s capital, Nairobi experiences the greatest concentration of pollution mainly from industries, and vehicles. There is no air quality management system set up to monitor and control air pollution in AIR POLLUTION IN NAIROBI the city. According to a study carried out by the United Nations on air quality (UNEP/WHO,1996), Nairobi came out as the poorest in terms of management and even worse, the situation is deteriorating as more and more land is cleared to create space for industrial development, human habitation and infrastructure.
The problem with this is, now these countries fully rely on these other countries for water. This problem has become very expensive. Issues such as population growth and costly cleaning technologies have adversely affected the availability of freshwater in the Middle East, causing this region to bring this issue to the forefront and make changes both domestically and regionally with both short-term and long-term goals for water conservation, education and population growth. The Middle East (and including North African countries, also known as MENA) has one of the least amounts of freshwater per person. ...the Middle East and North Africa region includes Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
Water is essential to all life forms and, without it, there would be no life on Earth. Fresh water is precious and limited. People, animals, and crops would die for lack of fresh water. The oceans support many species of plants and animal although we cannot use it without desalination. Studies show that the average American uses 176 gallons of water each day while the average African family uses only four gallons of water ("Water Facts | The Water Information Program").
