Air Pollution Control Measures
http://pollutioncontrol.free-health-care.info/blog/ Air Pollution Control Measures As you learn more about air pollution and what causes it, you will want to learn more about air pollution control measures. There are many things we all can do to help make our air a little cleaner. Individuals can do things like carpooling, walking, and riding bikes to help with air pollution control. On a larger scale, there are many different types of equipment available for businesses and factories that cut down, or even prevent air pollution. means of transportation Some ways an individual can help control air pollution, is to use alternate means of transportation to places like shopping, and work. However, if your work is too far away to walk or bike, then you can do things like carpool with co workers to decrease the amount of pollution. If you want to help prevent air pollution indoors then you can start with having adequate ventilation in all rooms, and if needed you can have exhaust systems installed. Another terrible source of indoor air pollution is cigarette smoking. cigarette smoke It is best to avoid being exposed to any cigarette smoke whenever possible. These are some of the ways you could practice good air pollution control on an individual level. However, if you do a bit of research and get creative, then you can find even more ways to clean up the air. air pollution control When it comes to air pollution control on a large scale, then it is the job of businesses to get the proper equipment needed to control each type of pollution. There are many different products that can be purchased to help prevent and sometimes eliminate pollution of the air. These products include, baghouse filters, activated carbon absorbers, and gas absorption towers. baghouse filter The baghouse filter can be used in many areas like, coal, power, steel, chemical, and even mining industries. These types of filters can handle the filtration of huge gas volumes and remove most particulate pollution from air before it is released into the atmosphere. The carbon absorbers remove things like organic acids, hydrogen sulfide, and aldeheydes. These filters can be used in many different industries to aid in air pollution control. chemical absorption tower The chemical absorption towers are designed to remove many chemicals in different industries like, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, sulfuric acid, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and many more. Many places where this equipment is available can customize the equipment to the businesses specific needs and size, making it better at air pollution control. More and more industries are using these wonderful tools to help them do their part to clean up the air we breathe.

Dust Suppression Testing on Coal Fly Ash Disposal Process
---COAL ASH DISPOSAL REGULATIONS SET TO TIGHTEN; COMPANY WRENCH WORKS TO SUPPORT INDUSTRY THROUGH DUST SUPPRESSION RESEARCH As environmental group pressure mounts in Washington to confirm the proposed Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) disposal regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Company Wrench proactively conducts research and testing of their HAWC (Hi-pressure Air Water Cannon) Dust Suppression System in Coal Ash Disposal processes. Longstanding disposal practices, such as slurry impoundments have been under fire since 2008, when the industry suffered the largest coal fly ash slurry spill in U.S. history. Over 1.1 billion gallons of sludge escaped from the TVA Kingston Fossil Plant slurry impoundment into the surrounding 5.4 million cubic yards of land and water tributaries of the Tennessee River. EPA cleanup estimates ranged from $675 to $975 million while significant damage to homes, wildlife, and drinking water resources were reported. In 2010, the EPA researched current and alternative CCR practices and submitted two proposals. While one proposal, Subtitle D, would keep CCR classified as a solid waste and therefore keep the disposal process regulations similar to what they are today, the Subtitle C proposal would classify CCR as hazardous waste and enact more stringent regulations on disposal processes. After 3 years with no conclusion, special interest groups have filed lawsuits against the EPA for violating provisions of the RCRA that require an EPA review of its regulations exempting coal ash every three years and revise them if necessary. With current political and public influences, the prospect of coal fly ash receiving the Subtitle C classification is becoming a real possibility. One of the regulations in the proposed Subtitle C regulation has to do with prevention of the release of fugitive dust. Because of the light, powdery consistency of fly ash, dry piles are extremely vulnerable to fugitive dust release and can pose very real environmental and safety hazards. In response to the looming regulation change, Company Wrench has become proactive, conducting airborne fly ash containment research and testing its HAWC Dust Suppression Machine at power plants and coal facilities around the country. Research into the HAWC 300-140-D Unit's viability in disposal processes that would be in compliance with the proposed Subtitle C regulation has discovered several methods that have had great initial success. These methods include dumping and grading at designated coal fly ash landfills, slurry pond evaporation, and landfill coverage cap application. A demonstration video is available online at -------- that shows the unit's effectiveness in dust suppression during dumping and grading in coal fly ash designated landfills. The most successful method involves a truck with an internal conveyor belt dumping the material into a pile and a mobile Diesel HAWC Unit contains all airborne particles and brings it to the ground. Once the piles have been wetted, they are graded into the landfill. Although today the EPA regulation changes are still up in the air, coal combustion residues contains chemicals like arsenic, cadmium, and mercury. Release of such chemicals comes with mandatory reporting requirements under current regulations. Dust suppression is a proactive measure to prevent fugitive coal fly ash dust and provides public and company safety benefits for individuals involved in CCR disposal. With employee health concerns on the rise, an effective dust suppression system used properly can negate these issues.

Protection Against Radioactivity in Uranium Mines 1969 US Bureau of Mines
This film from the United States Bureau of Mines presents general descriptions of the hazards of radon daughters in uranium mines, and outlines the environmental control, principles and procedures for mitigating the hazard. Scenes of underground mines show the origin and reason of the hazard, and various methods of ventilation are shown on how to correct the condition. Uranium mining occurred mostly in the southwestern United States and drew many Native Americans and others into work in the mines and mills. Despite a long and well-developed understanding, based on the European experience earlier in the century, that uranium mining led to high rates of lung cancer, few protections were provided by employers or government for US miners before 1962 and their adoption after that time was slow and incomplete. Some US officials and scientists advocated ventilation requirements in US mines as a proactive, preventative measure during the 1950s, on the basis of their knowledge of European experience. Duncan Holaday, an industrial hygienist with the PHS, has generally been recognized as the most prominent advocate for ventilation. He led the effort to obtain measurements of radon in the mines, and he used the data to argue forcefully within the government that ventilation would be effective and was feasible. His arguments achieved only limited success, as there was government resistance to requiring ventilation and his views were not made public at the time. The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) was an obstacle. In the late 1940s, controversy erupted in the New York Operations Office over the hazards from beryllium and uranium mining. The AEC wrote worker health requirements in contracts with companies that handled beryllium. After conflicting recommendations from staff, it chose not to establish such requirements for uranium. It claimed to lack legal authority, but it did not explain the legal difference between uranium and beryllium. The AEC did not lack knowledge: records of a January 25, 1951, internal meeting of AEC and PHS staff reveal that, on the basis of early measurements, they believed that radon was present in levels that would cause cancer and that ventilation could abate the hazard. Public acknowledgment of this problem was apparently squelched. For instance, Hueper, the scientist who wrote the 1942 review and who was then at the National Cancer Institute, was forbidden to speak in public about his concerns about the health hazard of radon in uranium mines. It is reported that he was even forbidden to travel west of the Mississippi, lest he say too much to the wrong people. The resulting high rates of illness among miners led in 1990 to passage of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. For more details, see the outstanding article, The History of Uranium Mining and the Navajo People, in the Sept 2002 American Journal of Public Health at http://www.ajph.org/cgi/reprint/92/9/1410 .

Environment Impact Assessment Part 1
Support us : https://www.instamojo.com/@exambin/ Download our app : http://examb.in/app Environmental Impact Assessment Developmental projects in the past were undertaken without any consideration to their environmental consequences. As a result the whole environment got polluted and degraded. In view of the colossal damage done to the environment, governments and public are now concerned about the environmental impacts of developmental activities. So, to assess the environmental impacts, the mechanism of Environmental Impact Assessment also known as EIA was introduced. EIA is a tool to anticipate the likely environmental impacts that may arise out of the proposed developmental activities and suggest measures and strategies to reduce them. EIA was introduced in India in 1978, with respect to river valley projects. Later the EIA legislation was enhanced to include other developmental sections since 1941. EIA comes under Notification on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of developmental projects 1994 under the provisions of Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. Besides EIA, the Government of India under Environment (Protection) Act 1986 issued a number of other notifications, which are related to environmental impact assessment. EIA is now mandatory for 30 categories of projects, and these projects get Environmental Clearance (EC) only after the EIA requirements are fulfilled. Environmental clearance or the ‘go ahead’ signal is granted by the Impact Assessment Agency in the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India. Projects that require clearance from central government can be broadly categorized into the following sectors • Industries • Mining • Thermal power plants • River valley projects • Infrastructure • Coastal Regulation Zone and • Nuclear power projects The important aspects of EIA are risk assessment, environmental management and Post product monitoring. Functions of EIA is to 1. Serve as a primary environmental tool with clear provisions. 2. Apply consistently to all proposals with potential environmental impacts. 3. Use scientific practice and suggest strategies for mitigation. 4. Address all possible factors such as short term, long term, small scale and large scale effects. 5. Consider sustainable aspects such as capacity for assimilation, carrying capacity, biodiversity protection etc... 6. Lay down a flexible approach for public involvement 7. Have a built-in mechanism of follow up and feedback. 8. Include mechanisms for monitoring, auditing and evaluation. In order to carry out an environmental impact assessment, the following are essential: 1. Assessment of existing environmental status. 2. Assessment of various factors of ecosystem (air, water, land, biological). 3. Analysis of adverse environmental impacts of the proposed project to be started. 4. Impact on people in the neighborhood. Benefits of EIA • EIA provides a cost effective method to eliminate or minimize the adverse impact of developmental projects. • EIA enables the decision makers to analyses the effect of developmental activities on the environment well before the developmental project is implemented. • EIA encourages the adaptation of mitigation strategies in the developmental plan. • EIA makes sure that the developmental plan is environmentally sound and within limits of the capacity of assimilation and regeneration of the ecosystem. • EIA links environment with development. The goal is to ensure environmentally safe and sustainable development. Environmental Components of EIA: The EIA process looks into the following components of the environment: • Air environment • Noise component : • Water environment • Biological environment • Land environment EIA Process and Procedures Steps in Preparation of EIA report • Collection of baseline data from primary and secondary sources; • Prediction of impacts based on past experience and mathematical modelling; • Evolution of impacts versus evaluation of net cost benefit; • Preparation of environmental management plans to reduce the impacts to the minimum; • Quantitative estimation of financial cost of monitoring plan and the mitigation measures. Environment Management Plan • Delineation of mitigation measures including prevention and control for each environmental component, rehabilitation and resettlement plan. EIA process: EIA process is cyclical with interaction between the various steps. 1. Screening 2. Scoping 3. Collection of baseline data 4. Impact prediction 5. Mitigation measures and EIA report 6. Public hearing 7. Decision making 8. Assessment of Alternatives, Delineation of Mitigation Measures and Environmental Impact Assessment Report 9. Risk assessment

Some Major Sources of Air Pollution
http://pollutioncontrol.free-health-care.info/blog/ Some Major Sources of Air Pollution Sources of air pollution are the factors, locations, and activities responsible for putting pollutants out into the air we breathe. There are two major types of these sources, and they are human related sources, and natural sources. The sources of air pollution that are human related can fall into many different categories. stationery sources One of these categories are stationery sources, like manufacturing facilities, power plants, and many industries like coal or mining. This source is responsible for a significant part of the pollutants in the air, and helps contribute to major types of air pollution like smog. moving sources A more major source of air pollution is moving sources. Moving sources include motor vehicles like cars, busses, trains, and aircraft. These types of air pollution are responsible for most of the pollution in the atmosphere. This moving source is one we can drastically reduce with a little effort and learning. Some other human relater sources of air pollution are harmful fumes from paint, varnish, hairspray, and aerosols in general. reduce pollution on an individual level These things are essential to our modern daily lives, and everyday we use them we are making the air a little more polluted. All of the human related sources of air pollution can be controlled or even prevented by learning about ways to reduce pollution on an individual level. If everyone put a little effort into controlling how they contribute personally to pollution. Then we could be breathing clean pure air some day soon. natural sources The other source of air pollution mentioned is natural sources. These sources are not something we cause and are not really something we can prevent but it is good to know about them and how they affect us. One of these is dust caused by natural occurrence. When a large area of land is barren and lacking in vegetation then the dirt becomes dry dust. This dust can be carried in the air to places far away from the spot of land and pollute the air all around it. good way to help control this natural pollution A good way to help control this natural pollution is to plant vegetation and trees where there is a spot of dry land. This may take some irrigation and a little effort but it will drastically decrease the natural dust pollution in the air. Some other natural pollutants are smoke and carbon monoxide from wildfires. huge area of forest When a huge area of forest is burned naturally then it releases toxins into the air for miles around. There is nothing we can do to prevent natural fires but we do try to control areas on fire from spreading to populated areas. The natural sources of air pollution are not as much of a threat as the ones we humans cause. However it is always good to learn all about how you can help prevent, and control both sources of air pollution.

Pollution-detecting drones launched in Poland
Polish engineers have developed what they have called a "flying laboratory" - a drone-based platform to test air pollution in one of Poland's dirtiest areas. Dust, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide concentrations can be measured remotely through the device. Engineers at the Central Mining Institute in Katowice say it can measure even the smallest concentration of pollutants in the air normally invisible to the naked eye. One of its designers, Doctor Adam Szade, told Reuters it's an innovative way to fight health threats.Air pollution in Poland is felt particularly in the south near ski resort towns such as Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains where homeowners often neglect environmental rules. The use of coal, and sometimes garbage, to heat houses makes Poland's air the most polluted in Europe, according to local government data. Poland is facing prosecution at the European Court of Justice for its slowness to address the issue of poor air quality caused by extensive coal-burning in homes. The environment ministry acknowledges the problem but says the situation is gradually improving because of modernisation of heating systems and other energy-efficiency measures for homes. Scientists are now working on making the mobile lab prototype smaller, so that it can be carried by smaller drones.

S. Korea unveils measures to slash coal-fired power plants to tackle fine dust
미세먼지 줄이기 위해 노후 석탄발전소 조기 폐쇄 The South Korean government has revealed it's going to decommission several coal-fired power plants over the next few years as part of efforts to counter the country's chronic issue with fine dust. The trade ministry says ten coal plants nationwide will be closed permanently by 2022. That's three years earlier than the previous deadline of 2025. The government will also prevent coal plants that have been operational for more than 30 years from operating between March and June this year. Other measures include boosting investment for environmental facilities and encouraging energy companies to build gas-fired power plants.

India Sells Stake in State-Owned Coal Firm
As part of a program to raise billions of dollars through partly privatizing state-owned companies, India sold stakes in a coal mining firm Friday. The program is intended to help the government to control its fiscal deficit as it seeks to boost the country’s economy. Boosting economy The 10 percent stake in Coal India that investors snapped up Friday will bring in about $3.7 billion for the government. The company is the world’s largest coal producer and the largest supplier of coal within India. The buoyant response to the sale of Coal India stock has given a shot in the arm (boost) to the government’s plans to raise about $10 billion by offloading stakes in several other state-owned companies. These mammoth firms are a legacy of the country’s former Soviet style planning system, but privatizing them has been politically sensitive. The sale of Coal India stocks is the biggest attempted so far. It went ahead despite protests from labor unions. Economist N.R. Bhanumurthy at the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy in New Delhi said selling stakes in state-owned firms will boost government finances and help it meet its target of trimming the budget deficit to a seven-year low of 4.1 percent. He said this will ensure that India’s rating is not downgraded and the country remains attractive for investors. “It is also because the rating agencies are very keenly looking at India’s behavior in terms of managing the fiscal deficit. So all these measures that we see at the moment are definitely in the right direction and we are very hopeful that the government can manage achieving the fiscal target in the current year,” he stated. Reviving investor confidence The government, which took office last May on the promise of reviving the economy, has been trying to woo foreign investors to kick start an economy whose growth plummeted to a decade low in 2013. The series of steps to revive investor confidence includes reducing India’s notorious bureaucratic hurdles, simplifying investment rules and tax laws, and a promise to build infrastructure. Economist Bhanumurthy said India is again on the radar (being looked at by) of foreign investors. “Overall the kind of policies that is being pushed by the new government indicate that right now Indian economy is in right direction," he noted. "And we are hoping for better capital foreign inflows so we can expand the manufacturing sector.” The successful sale of Coal India stock will be seen as another signal that investor confidence is returning. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have forecast in recent reports that India’s economy is set to revive and could overtake China’s by 2017.

Bharat Book Bureau : Research Report on Boiler Industry in China, 2014 2018
To know more please visit : https://www.bharatbook.com/machine-and-parts-market-research-reports-490243/research-report-on-boiler-industry-in-china-2014-2018.html Coal is the major fuel in industry and people's daily life in China. Most coal used in industrial boilers is unwashed raw coal with high content of ash and sulphur, and large granularity, which leads to low combustion efficiency and high emission volume of pollutants. According to statistics, 45%-65% of air pollution in cities is generated by the raw coal. Therefore, the most rapid and effective method to solve air pollution is to replace coal with gas. In early 1980s, to improve residents' life and alleviate environment pollution, many commercial gas projects were launched by local governments to raise the popularity of gas in cities, which remarkably promoted the production and development of gas fired boilers. However, the technology upgrading and market promotion of gas fired boilers stagnated after 1990s because of the high cost of gas and the sluggish construction of gas pipe network. Additionally, most industrial boilers used coal instead of gas as the fuel. Gas fired boilers develop rapidly as the gas pipe network is improved and the mining and marketing of domestic gas accelerate in the 21st century. Recently, as environment pollution deteriorates, Chinese government manages to restrain the use of coal fired boilers while enterprises are subsidized by local governments to finish the transformation from coal to gas. Market shares of coal fired boilers are rapidly occupied by gas fired boilers in China. The transformation from a single coal-fired machine into a gas-fired one without government subsidies is not economical. However, it is operational to integrate several coal-fired machines into a set of gas-fired machinery with centralized power and heat supply. It is expected that the denitration projects in key areas will be established in China by the end of 2014. With industrial emission as the next focus, Chinese government issues a series of measures to control the emission of industrial pollutants, including Major Projects in the Twelfth Five-Year (2011-2015) Plan for Air Pollution Prevention in Key Areas, Recommendations on Accelerating the Development of Energy-saving and Environment-Friendly Industries, and Emission Standards for Air Pollutants of Boilers (Draft). Meanwhile, local governments adopt active measures to control industrial emission, including the popular projects like "transformation from coal to natural gas" and "transformation from coal to electricity". Major customers of commercial gas-fired boilers are high-end hotels, major government agencies, hospitals, large-scale retailers, office buildings and high-end residential areas. The market exhibits huge potential for growth as the business expands into industrial fields and ordinary residential areas in China. Huge market potential for gas fired boilers exists in cities on the West-East Gas Pipeline and the imported natural gas pipeline, and coastal cities capable of importing liquid gas. As an eco-friendly product, gas fired boiler will gain remarkable development due to the supportive policies of Chinese government. It is anticipated that gas fired boilers will become the mainstream products in Chinese boiler market in the coming years. Through this report, the readers can acquire the following information: -Supply and Demand Status of Industrial Boilers in China -Government Policies of Boiler Industry in China -Reasons of the Transformation from Coal to Gas Fired Boilers -Competition Status of Boiler Market in China -Major Manufacturers of Boilers in China -Prospect of China Boiler Industry The following enterprises and people are recommended to purchase this report: -Manufacturers and Trading Enterprises of Industrial Boilers -Users of Industrial Boilers -Investors/Research Institutes Concerned about Industrial Boiler Industry

Environmental pollution
7 Kinds of Environmental Pollution...   There are actually SEVEN different kinds of environmental pollution. Most people can name air, water and land...do you know the other four? Or examples of what constitutes actual pollution in each category? Listed below are each kind and examples to help you understand just how we can affect the environment and each other. Air Pollution Photo Source According to the dictionary, air pollution is the contamination of air by smoke and harmful gases, mainly oxides of carbon, sulfur, and nitrogen. (And maybe by that smelly uncle.) Some examples of air pollution include: Exhaust fumes from vehicles The burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, or gas Harmful off- gasing from things such as paint, plastic production, and so on Radiation spills or nuclear accidents Air pollution is linked to asthma, allergies and other respiratory illnesses. You can more about how the environment affects human health here. Land Pollution Photo Source Land pollution is the degradation of the Earth's surface caused by a misuse of resources and improper disposal of waste. Some examples of land pollution include: Litter found on the side of the road Illegal dumping in natural habitats Oil spills that happen inland The use of pesticides and other farming chemicals Damage and debris caused from unsustainable mining and logging practices Radiation spills or nuclear accidents Land pollution is responsible for damage done to natural habitat of animals, deforestation and damage done to natural resources, and the general ugly-ing up of our communities. (So stop being a litterbug, eh?) Light Pollution Light pollution is the brightening of the night sky inhibiting the visibility of stars and planets by the use of improper lighting of communities. Some examples of what causes light pollution: Street lamps that shine light in all directions, instead of with a hood to point light downward toward the street. Extra, unnecessary lights around the home Cities that run lights all night long Light pollution uses more energy (by shining more light up instead of down, meaning you need brighter bulbs for the same amount of light), may affect human health and our sleep cycles, and most importantly, corrupts our kids telescopes and their curiosity. (I grew up in a city. My first no-light night in the country blew my mind. Let's not make that such a rare occasion!) Noise Pollution Photo Source Noise pollution is any loud sounds that are either harmful or annoying to humans and animals. Some exmaples of noise pollution: Airplanes, helicopters, and motor vehicles Construction or demolition noise Human activities such as sporting events or concerts Noise pollution can be disruptive to humans' stress levels, may be harmful to unborn babies, and drives animals away by causing nervousness and decreasing their ability to hear prey or predators. Thermal Pollution Thermal pollution is the increase of temperature caused by human activity. A few examples of this include: Warmer lake water from nearby manufacturing (using cool water to cool the plant and then pump it back into the lake) Included in thermal pollution should also be the increase in temperatures in areas with lots of concrete or vehicles, generally in cities These kinds of environmental pollution can cause aquatic life to suffer or die due to the increased temperature, can cause discomfort to communities dealing with higher temperatures, and will affect plant-life in and around the area. Visual Pollution Photo Source Visual pollution is what you would call anything unattractive or visualing damaging to the nearby landscape. This tends to be a highly subjective topic. Some examples of visual pollution: Skyscrapers that blocks a natural view Graffiti or carving on trees, rocks, or other natural landscapes Billboards, litter, abandoned homes, and junkyards could also be considered among three kinds of environmental pollution Mostly, visual kinds of environmental pollution are annoying and ugly, although some may say they are also depressing, and they of course affect the surrounding landscape with the changes they cause. When a man throws an empty cigarette package from an automobile, he is liable to a fine of $50. When a man throws a billboard across a view, he is richly rewarded. - Pat Brown Water Pollution Photo Source: Alan Liefting Water pollution is the contamination of any body of water (lakes, groundwater, oceans, etc). Some examples of water pollution: Raw sewage running into lake or streams Industrial waste spills contaminating groundwater Radiation spills or nuclear accidents Illegal dumping of substances or items within bodies of water Biological contamination, such as bacteria growth Farm runoff into nearby bodies of water These kinds of environmental pollution are linked to health issues in humans, animals and plant-life.

Everything is controlled by circuits, machines only turn on if 1) there is enough material to start production 2) production box is lower than 75% (and less than 100%) Mines only work if the chests at the station are not full enough. Science labs only turned on in if we research (1 lab always works, and I check if its using any electricity from an accumulator, by disconnecting the accumulator from the power for 5 seconds then we check if the lab using power then we recharge for an other 5 seconds. Also my mall has individually controlled factories each turn on/off on conditions. (they only work if output box is lower than my setting and if we got at least 1 each item of the recipe)

Market-based approaches to environmental policy
In this lecture on topics in environmental economics, Dr. Sheila Olmstead presents a summary of the use of market-based approaches to dealing with environmental externalities. She first notes the difference between prescriptive regulations, which generally take the form of laws and policy standards, and market-based regulations, which can use price or quantity instruments like taxes or allocation permits to create new markets that capture the cost of externalities. She presents an analytical example of cap-and-trade approaches to highlight the difference between market-based policies and prescriptive policies. She notes the cost-effectiveness of market-based policies in many scenarios and also identifies cases in which prescriptive policies might be more appropriate. She ends with several examples of market-based approaches to environmental policy and their relative costs and benefits.

What policies will best address these issues? What can individuals do in response?
Senate to hold first vote on Green New Deal
The Green New Deal, liberal Democrats' sweeping proposal to address climate change, will get its first vote on Capitol Hill Tuesday. The Senate is scheduled to take up a procedural motion on the ambitious plan, which also calls for a broad social remake of the American economy, that could lead to a final vote as early as next week. The irony? It's Republican opponents, led by GOP Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who are eager to bring the non-binding resolution to a vote because they believe the plan they continually lambaste will turn off voters heading to the polls next year. McConnell said he wants to get Senate Democrats – several of whom are running for president in 2020 – "on record" about the Green New Deal. Spurred by government reports warning of drastic consequences, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., unveiled the proposal in February. It calls not only for combating climate change by eliminating carbon emissions caused by fossil fuels and shifting the economy to one powered by renewable fuels, but also prescribes a broad social justice platform advocating for free housing, medical coverage and higher education for all Americans. GOP senators ridicule the plan because The Green New Deal's original talking points called for even more drastic goals: a build-out of high-speed rail that would make carbon-emitting airplane travel obsolete; an end to dependence of nuclear power as well as fossil fuels; and the creation of "a sustainable, pollution and greenhouse gas free, food system" that would no longer rely on "farting cows." "Basically, the Green New Deal is an assault on cows, cars and combustion," Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said on the Senate floor Monday. "With nuclear power available, it's strategy for fighting climate change with windmills makes as much sense as going to war in sail boats." But Delaware Sen. Tom Carper, the top Democrat on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said the issue is no laughing matter. "This is not a time for derision. This is not a time for division," Carper said on the Senate floor Monday. "On an issue as serious as this, we ought to be serious about addressing it." Although Democrats are united in wanting to aggressively address climate change, party lawmakers have been divided over whether the Green New Deal is the best approach. A number of moderate Democrats have distanced themselves from the parts of the measure that go beyond ways of confronting global warming. And even though Democrats control the House, there are no immediate plans to bring the proposal to the floor for a vote.

Air Pollution Near Amravati city with Co2 & Other gases
Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, or other harmful materials into Earth's atmosphere, causing disease, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as food crops, or the natural or built environment. Air pollution may come from anthropogenic or natural sources. The atmosphere is a complex natural gaseous system that is essential to support life on planet Earth. Stratospheric ozone depletion due to air pollution has been recognized as a threat to human health as well as to the Earth's ecosystems. Indoor air pollution and urban air quality are listed as two of the world's worst toxic pollution problems in the 2008 Blacksmith Institute World's Worst Polluted Places report.[1] According to the 2014 WHO report, air pollution in 2012 caused the deaths of around 7 million people worldwide. An air pollutant is a substance in the air that can have adverse effects on humans and the ecosystem. The substance can be solid particles, liquid droplets, or gases. A pollutant can be of natural origin or man-made. Pollutants are classified as primary or secondary. Primary pollutants are usually produced from a process, such as ash from a volcanic eruption. Other examples include carbon monoxide gas from motor vehicle exhaust, or the sulfur dioxide released from factories. Secondary pollutants are not emitted directly. Rather, they form in the air when primary pollutants react or interact. Ground level ozone is a prominent example of a secondary pollutant. Some pollutants may be both primary and secondary: they are both emitted directly and formed from other primary pollutants. Major primary pollutants produced by human activity include: Sulfur oxides (SOx) - particularly sulfur dioxide, a chemical compound with the formula SO2. SO2 is produced by volcanoes and in various industrial processes. Coal and petroleum often contain sulfur compounds, and their combustion generates sulfur dioxide. Further oxidation of SO2, usually in the presence of a catalyst such as NO2, forms H2SO4, and thus acid rain.[2] This is one of the causes for concern over the environmental impact of the use of these fuels as power sources. Nitrogen oxides (NOx) - Nitrogen oxides, particularly nitrogen dioxide, are expelled from high temperature combustion, and are also produced during thunderstorms by electric discharge. They can be seen as a brown haze dome above or a plume downwind of cities. Nitrogen dioxide is a chemical compound with the formula NO2. It is one of several nitrogen oxides. One of the most prominent air pollutants, this reddish-brown toxic gas has a characteristic sharp, biting odor. Carbon monoxide (CO) - CO is a colorless, odorless, toxic yet non-irritating gas. It is a product by incomplete combustion of fuel such as natural gas, coal or wood. Vehicular exhaust is a major source of carbon monoxide. Volatile organic compounds - VOCs are a well-known outdoor air pollutant. They are categorized as either methane (CH4) or non-methane (NMVOCs). Methane is an extremely efficient greenhouse gas which contributes to enhanced global warming. Other hydrocarbon VOCs are also significant greenhouse gases because of their role in creating ozone and prolonging the life of methane in the atmosphere. This effect varies depending on local air quality. The aromatic NMVOCs benzene, toluene and xylene are suspected carcinogens and may lead to leukemia with prolonged exposure. 1,3-butadiene is another dangerous compound often associated with industrial use. Particulates, alternatively referred to as particulate matter (PM), atmospheric particulate matter, or fine particles, are tiny particles of solid or liquid suspended in a gas. In contrast, aerosol refers to combined particles and gas. Some particulates occur naturally, originating from volcanoes, dust storms, forest and grassland fires, living vegetation, and sea spray. Human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels in vehicles, power plants and various industrial processes also generate significant amounts of aerosols. Averaged worldwide, anthropogenic aerosols—those made by human activities—currently account for approximately 10 percent of our atmosphere. Increased levels of fine particles in the air are linked to health hazards such as heart disease,[3] altered lung function and lung cancer. Persistent free radicals connected to airborne fine particles are linked to cardiopulmonary disease.[4][5] Toxic metals, such as lead and mercury, especially their compounds. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) - harmful to the ozone layer; emitted from products are currently banned from use. These are gases which are released from air conditioners, refrigerators, aerosol sprays, etc. CFC's on being released into the air rises to stratosphere. Here they come in contact with other gases and damage the ozone layer. This allows harmful ultraviolet rays to reach the earth's surface.

Expert: China on right path to curb pollution
Severe smog shrouded north China earlier this week. On Monday, the Chinese capital city of Beijing for the first time issued the highest air pollution alert for three days. Schools were closed, work at outdoor construction sites suspended, and factories halted operations. Cars with even-numbered license plates were kept off roads. Dr. Matthew Kahn, a visiting Professor of Economics at University of South California, called the pollution a byproduct of China's decades-long fast economic growth. He also said the heavy pollution is a catalyst for the government to take tougher measures. SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) DR. MATTHEW KAHN, Environmental economist: "China has had an amazing economic growth, but byproduct of that growth is plenty of pollution from burning coal, industrial production, and increased car growth." At the Paris Climate Change Conference, China reiterated its pledge made in June, including cutting carbon emissions, increasing non-fossil fuel sources and peaking carbon emissions by 2030. Kahn said China has made such firm commitment out of several reasons. As the world's second largest economy and one of the biggest carbon emitters, China is playing a crucial and responsible role in the global fight against climate change. To win the fight, Kahn said China needs to rely on renewable energy. He also believed that the green technology will help boost China's economy in the long run.

YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip) is a groundbreaking adventure and a celebration of the American spirit in the face of adversity - a thought-provoking, inspiring, and sometimes hilarious, documentary about the courageous and creative individuals, groups, businesses and leaders of this country who are tackling the greatest environmental threats in history. Called into action by the ever increasing threats of planetary catastrophe (from climate change to toxic pollution, from water scarcity to habitat destruction), the three of us - Mark Dixon, Ben Evans, and Julie Dingman Evans - upended our lives, pooled our collective life-savings, and set off on a first-of-its-kind, 50-state, year-long journey of discovery to personalize sustainability and to answer a critical question: ARE WE DOOMED? On July 4th, 2007, with camera in hand, tongue in cheek, and packing ourselves, our supplies, and our filmmaking equipment like sardines into a used hybrid car, the YERT team set out from the Rachel Carson Homestead in Pittsburgh, PA to document environmental sustainability in every state in the union in a single year. We wanted to find out: What can Americans do to save the planet? What are they already doing? Why aren't we all doing more? Is it possible that doing right by the planet is more economical, joyful, and fulfilling than not? But this film isn't just about documenting change, it's about living it. We were on a mission to personalize sustainability, and as the National Academy of Sciences pointed out back in 1990, humanity is currently "conducting an uncontrolled experiment with the planet." So as we traveled and filmed, we decided to BE the experiment - we would never turn on an incandescent light bulb, we would radically reduce our water usage by any means necessary, and, above all, we would attempt to generate zero waste, keeping all of our garbage (and recyclables) with us for the entire year...in our packed-to-the-gills hybrid. To pull this off, all of our garbage each month would have to fit in...a shoebox. We scoured the country, conducting over 800 interviews, amassing nearly 600 hours of footage, and bathing ourselves in America's unique approach to environmental sustainability - the good, the bad, and the weird. We found everything from a 92 year-old caveman who's built an entire cave community in the mountains of Idaho to an electrical engineer working to repower America with solar roadways; from outrageous green personalities like Missouri's Eco-Elvis and Florida's Earth Man to incredible new businesses like Tom Szaky's Terracycle in New Jersey that's making a mint turning garbage into almost anything; from the utter devastation of Mountain Top Removal coal mining in Appalachia to the revolutionary agricultural genius of Wes Jackson and the Land Institute in the Kansas heartland. Several months in, an unexpected pregnancy instantly and dramatically changed life for all of us (particularly Ben and Julie, who had been told they could never have children) and pushed the team to the brink. Facing the potential derailment of the entire project, the team had to grapple with new challenges and questions - How long could two dudes and a pregnant woman survive in an enclosed space? Would we all be able to finish the trip? Would the needs of the pregnancy wreck the team's environmental goals and challenges? Were Ben and Mark up for birthing a baby in the Alaskan wilderness? As both Julie and the garbage expanded, would the car actually explode? And as our personal journeys progressed and we dug deeper into the causes of climate change, it became clear that creating a sustainable world is about much more than simply combating global warming. Everything is tied together, and we began to connect those dots. Efficiency, renewable energy, and technological advances are critically important, but we can't begin to address climate change unless we also address how we grow our food, how we use our water, how we measure our economy, how we approach human health, how we create/protect community, and, ultimately, how we find fulfillment and understand ourselves. Global warming is but the most dire symptom of some very fundamental issues about how our species functions on the planet. As the godfather of green building, Bob Berkebile, reminded us, we must "move beyond the current environmental movement which is about doing less harm. Our responsibility is not to do less bad, but to do something creative, and regenerative, and restorative, and loving." It's taken more than 150 years to get ourselves into this mess, with America leading the way. The science tells us we have 5-10 years to get ourselves out of it. The question is, will America be leading the way or...are we doomed? You'll just have to watch the movie to find out.

Smog Choking the People of China
Air pollution causes 350,000 to 500,000 premature deaths on the mainland a year, according to an article co-written by a former health minister. Chen Zhu, now president of the Chinese Medical Association, and three other authors endorsed the estimate in a commentary published in The Lancet medical journal last month. The article, titled "China tackles the heath effects of air pollution", cited estimates from the World Bank, the World Health Organisation, the Chinese Academy of Environmental Planning and Fudan University. The authors said China spewed out more of the main pollutants than any other country, but that "prevention and control of environmental pollution in China is difficult because there are multiple pollution sources and pollutants across cities and regions". Beijing has committed US$277.5 billion over five years to preventing and controlling air pollution and if targets are met 200,000 fewer people would die prematurely each year, according to The Lancet article. It said the main polluters in the country were industry, coal and vehicles. However, the estimate the article endorsed - that air pollution causes 350,000 to 500,000 premature deaths each year - was far lower than another estimate in a study published in the same magazine the year before that air pollution was responsible for 1.2 million premature deaths in 2010 alone and the loss of 25 million disability-adjusted life-years. Chen said the 2012 study was a worst-case scenario and might have overestimated the effects of pollution. The former health chief and his fellow authors said in their commentary the lower estimate used a revised measure of long-term air pollution and real-time air monitoring data in cities, which "better reflect the real situation in the country". However, Yang Gonghuan, a former deputy director of the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention and an author of the 2012 study, said: "I don't think it's really appropriate to say we overestimated. "The Fudan University study only looked at 113 cities, while ours looked at the whole country. The population of the whole country is far greater than the population of 113 cities." Major Chinese cities have been severely affected by heavy smog in the past few months. Yesterday Guangzhou activated its orange alert and ordered 11 mandatory air pollution emergency measures for the first time, which included taking one-fifth of the 13,000 government vehicles off the roads. This came two months after the measures were announced. Local media reported that Guangzhou Mayor Chen Jianhua rode the subway to work to do his small part to combat pollution. Other measures put in place to limit the effects of the pollution included halting dusty construction projects such as mining and demolition. Schools, kindergartens and childcare facilities were ordered to cancel outdoor activities until the air quality improves.

Australian FM pledges help in anti-pollution measures
1. Wide of Australian Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer, entering news conference 2. Downer walking to podium 3. Cutaway of audience 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Alexander Downer, Australian Foreign Minister: "Our position is that we have a security declaration with Japan and that is not a security declaration which threatens other countries. It's about cooperation between two countries which have a very strong bilateral relationship in areas such as peacekeeping and dealing with emergency relief." 5. Cutaway of audience 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Alexander Downer, Australian Foreign Minister: "With China likely to overtake the United States as the world's largest CO2 (carbon dioxide) emitter by 2009-2010, I think we all need to encourage China to do what it possibly can, obviously without sacrificing the challenge of alleviating poverty in China, but to do what it possibly can to mitigate the CO2 emissions." 7, Cutaway of audience 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Alexander Downer, Australian Foreign Minister: "Australia will work intensively with China on developing clean coal technologies because by 2030, 70 percent of China's energy will still be generated by coal fired power stations." 9. Downer leaving news conference STORYLINE: Australia pledged on Thursday to help China clean its heavily polluted air and water, urging others to follow suit as China is expected to soon become the world's largest greenhouse gas emitter. Australia's Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said his nation will help China develop cleaner coal technology. China is the world's biggest producer and user of coal, while Australia is the largest fossil fuel exporter. Burning coal releases carbon dioxide, which experts say worsens global warming. "With China likely to overtake the United States as the world's largest CO2 (carbon dioxide) emitter by 2009-2010, I think we all need to encourage China," he said at a news conference in Beijing. Downer said he hoped China would do all it could to clean its environment "without sacrificing the challenge of alleviating poverty." The Chinese government says the country currently lacks the technology to significantly reduce emissions. Leaders are also concerned that shutting older factories or power plants could wipe out jobs in poor areas, where the government worries about unrest among the unemployed. A statement distributed at the news conference said Australia will give China 21 (m) million US dollars (26 (m) million Australian dollars) in environmental aid over the next five years. Another 20 (m) million US dollars (25 (m) million Australian dollars) will be provided for preventing the spread of HIV and AIDS in China, the statement said. Downer said Australia would "work intensively with China on developing clean coal technology, because by 2030, 70 percent of China's energy will still be generated by coal-fired power stations." Australia and the United States are the only major industrialised countries to reject the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which commits 35 nations and the European community to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to five percent below 1990 levels by 2012. Downer also reassured China, during the news conference, that the recent security agreement that Australia signed with Japan does not pose a threat to other countries. "Our position is that we have a security declaration with Japan and that is not a security declaration which threatens other countries," Downer said. "It's about cooperation between two countries which have a very strong bilateral relationship in areas such as peacekeeping and dealing with emergency relief," he added. Japan and Australia signed a security agreement on 13 March 2007 to further improve an increasingly close defence relationship.
