Unhappy home pollution is rife.

Unhappy home pollution is rife.

Posted Fri, 23 Jan 2015 16:48:03 GMT by JW Dowey

How clean is your home? Rephrase that now and ask yourself how polluted it is, compared to the fresh air, if your neighbourhood has any. You may be hygienic too, which is another kettle of fish (smelly that is). Whatever your situation, we all become complacent. It is not only the drains, polluted with too much detergent. Your own life, that of children and that of older and sick people is endangered by what you do. Awareness is a very simple science, pure and logical, but we must keep up. New products often turn out to be unexpectedly dangerous, even to the manufacturer. The testing now is rigorous, but simpler science is best.

Climate change and carbon dioxide emissions are the simple link. The science tells us about all the other greenhouse gases and the links to rainfall in Europe, Asia and South America, drought in Australia, North America and Africa plus the rise in sea levels. That should make the problem seem more urgent, but has it had the required effect on those chosen to perform the actions we all need?

 Relief for American groundwater worries (or is it?)

Relief for American groundwater worries (or is it?)

Water, water everywhere, as far as groundwater is concerned. But this precious resource, as California has discovered, can so easily be contaminated for not only your people, but also any hope for industry. Good news from the Northern US is that their groundwater seems intact at the moment, unlike some states where fracking has interfered with deep systems. While some of the biggest states cry over spilt water, or rather drought, perhaps we can all learn from the mistakes of the recent past-or maybe not.

Little is known of the most highly-developed bacterial action against some heavy metals. Against organic toxins in oil they have been tried for decades, but extra safety precautions will be essential before crops can be used for human consumption. We have had enough of Minamata disease.

A conference looks likely to enliven debate on both the Aral Sea’s fate and the need for interventions on environmental problems that are causing international problems for health, ecology and vast pollution.

The UK is about to receive a visit from the infamous quagga mussel. It’s a rock star you won’t like, living in hard substrates and a softie too! Many species such as freshwater fish could be affected, as well as poisoned, while the blockages caused by the high population levels often bring power station or other water inlets to a full stop.

More on climate change and changing over from fossil fuels? The crunch is indeed coming for all of us. But like those who resisted the idea of global warming itself, will we refuse to get on with the job of adopting new ideas and, more important, dissuading many from polluting so much and failing to change.

Who is aware of their city’s invisible pollution problems and how can the health of urbanites be improved? Too often, we are too late in saving the health of our workers and children. Those who know the truth have probably moved out already.

Sorry, we're boring the pants off the polluters. But we have to report that yet another approach is being made to solving climate change. The UN will draw together influential organisations and people to finally make a push towards redeeming ourselves, after the failures of Copenhagen and Kyoto. The politics seems impossible, but this is one parley that has to be concluded, and rapidly.

Throughout Eurasia, we have several developments in regulations that may protect your health. Particulate matter of both PM2.5 and PM10 sizes is being recognised as an enormous health risk, almost parallel to the former risks taken by farmers, mine and other workers with pneumonocosis.

Can global warming create more dangerous water problems than we had predicted? It seems now that shallow lakes are in great danger of contamination if we feed them agricultural fertilizers. Chinese, African and now American water supplies are regularly affected and made unusable with Microcystis toxins.

The disgraceful lack of control and study of the Alberta tar sands exploitation is leading to people's health problems. As the US considers its imports from Canada, it would be wise to consider just how neglectful the Canadians have been to their residents, air quality, water purity and forests.

We have ideas and giant international conferences coming up, on how to combat global warming and specifically what we can do with greenhouse gases. It could be, though, that some of the jokers in the pack are simply sequestering while Rome burns. After all, their employment depends on maintaining the coal, oil, gas and even fracking industries. Maybe replacing these industries with renewable energy technologies would use different engineers and spoil the party for many profitable companies?

After such a long time, it's amazing that the Mediterranean hasn't been swamped by industrial revolutions or the effects of so many wars. Now the ancient writing on the wall is coming true as recent pollution from fossil fuels acidify and warm the troubled waters. What can we all do about our whole earth climate, after the Med, it’s the Atlantic and then the Pacific. How long can nature hold out against the onslaught of ignorant emissions that we provide?

Mauna Loa gives us the most useful data from relatively unpolluted air at 11,000 feet. However we regard greenhouse gases, it’s far too late to ignore the obvious warming effect. We need action to stop using fossil fuels-completely.
