Environmental Degradation IB HL
4 Types Of Mined Raw Materials Metals (Iron Ore, and Copper). Industrial Minerals (Lime, and Soda Ash). Construction Materials (Sand, and Gravel). Energy Minerals (Coil, Oil, and Gas).
Environmental Impacts Habitat destruction. Disposal of waste. Pollution (Air, Land, Visual, Smell, Water). Deforestation. Derelict land left over.
Increased Air Travel Aviation accounts for 13% of the worlds CO 2 discharges. Airlines emissions contain nitrogen oxides creating ozone and clouds intensifying the greenhouse effect. These emissions can therefore impact climates considerably.
Activities Using Geography Course Companion P , answer the following… 1.Using Figure 11 (P103), describe the growth of International Freight Transport. 2.Using Figure 12 (P104), describe the growth in International Freight transport between 1979 and 2011 (with reasons). 3.What are the environmental problems associated with the substantial increase in air freight?
