2 Natural Disasters and Environmental Problems Volcanic eruption Volcanic eruption Drought Drought

3 MAIN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS Air pollution Air pollution Destruction of the ozone layer Destruction of the ozone layer Greenhouse effect Greenhouse effect Global warming Global warming Water pollution Water pollution Deforestation Deforestation Hunting Hunting Overfishing Overfishing Litter/rubbish Litter/rubbish

4 CAUSES gases from factories. gases from factories. car exhaust fumes/traffic fumes. car exhaust fumes/traffic fumes. increase in the amount of carbon dioxide and other gases being released in the atmosphere. increase in the amount of carbon dioxide and other gases being released in the atmosphere. dumping industrial waste in rivers and seas. dumping industrial waste in rivers and seas. dangerous chemicals from factories being poured into streams, rivers and lakes. dangerous chemicals from factories being poured into streams, rivers and lakes. people in poor countries are destroying jungles and forests because they need farmland to feed their families. people in poor countries are destroying jungles and forests because they need farmland to feed their families. forests are being burnt or cut down by logging companies for profit. forests are being burnt or cut down by logging companies for profit. lots of animals are killed for body parts (skins, horns, tusks, etc.). lots of animals are killed for body parts (skins, horns, tusks, etc.). production of too much packaging and food waste. production of too much packaging and food waste.

5 EFFECTS acid rain (damages to trees, lakes and buildings) acid rain (damages to trees, lakes and buildings) smog smog breathing problems breathing problems cancer risk cancer risk change in world’s climate change in world’s climate sea and oceans levels rising sea and oceans levels rising extreme weather conditions (floods, tsunami, etc) extreme weather conditions (floods, tsunami, etc) fish die fish die stomach illnesses stomach illnesses destruction of the rainforest destruction of the rainforest destruction of natural habitats destruction of natural habitats lots of animals in danger of extinction lots of animals in danger of extinction lots of animal and fish are disappearing (endangered species) lots of animal and fish are disappearing (endangered species) dirty streets dirty streets diseases diseases

6 Possible Solutions reduce gases emitted from factories reduce gases emitted from factories use public transport instead of cars use public transport instead of cars reduce chemicals areosol sprays and fridges reduce chemicals areosol sprays and fridges use alternative sources of energy use alternative sources of energy limit use of chemicals in industry limit use of chemicals in industry fine factories which pollute streams, rivers and lakes fine factories which pollute streams, rivers and lakes give financial support to poorer countries give financial support to poorer countries encourage countries to control the number of trees that are burnt or cut down encourage countries to control the number of trees that are burnt or cut down stricter laws and harsher punishments for legal hunting (poaching) and fishing stricter laws and harsher punishments for legal hunting (poaching) and fishing more protected national parks more protected national parks encourage recycling encourage recycling
