12. Human and Environmental Impacts
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) Until recently, the world population has been growing faster than exponentially. Although the growth rate has slowed somewhat, there are about 80 million more people each year and about 3 billion more will be added by 2050 (a 50% increase). Population will probably increase more beyond that. Such growth is unprecedented and we cannot predict its long-term effects. The environmental impact of this population increase is bound to be astronomic. Large populations engender two problems: over-consumption in the rich countries which leads to environmental misery, and under-consumption in the poor countries which leads to human misery. People living in abject poverty ($1 per day) don't limit their fertility. Factory jobs in poor countries pay double that, ~$2 per day. For population to stabilize, income must rise. If population is to increase by 50%, income needs to double -- we are looking at a tripling of the world economy. The environment is currently overstressed. Can it survive a tripling of the economy? 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 13:47 - Chapter 2. Population Explosion 28:44 - Chapter 3. Population and Over Consumption 38:58 - Chapter 4.

Hindi Animation on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Process
This documentary seeks to demystify and educate local communities on the EIA process. It uses a storyline to show the importance of EIA process in relation to the community. The story revolves around a village which has been informed that a thermal power plant is proposed to be set up near their village. The villagers are initially happy that the project proponents have offered job opportunity for one person per household for the entire village; however, later they come to know that their livelihood, health and environment could be affected to a great extent if they were not vigilant and this creates fear in their minds. This fear is assuaged by Kathiresan’s son- Muthu’s friend, Jayaprasad, who explains to them about the EIA process notified by the Government, where they could participate in the public consultation process that is mandated under the EIA notification and explains about effectively participating in the public hearing. He also tells them that the project can take off only if all parameters were complied with and EC given, and if there was any problem, they could approach the NGT.

The Crash Course - Chapter 23 - The Environment - Depleting Resources
Why scarcity will define the future. When we wander over to the third E in this story – the Environment - we note two things: both the increasing demand of exponentially more resources being extracted from the ground and exponentially more waste being put back into various ecosystems. Because we are trying to assess here whether we can justify ever-increasing amounts of money and debt, for now let's just concern ourselves with the resources we take from the natural world to support our global economy. Oil is not the only essential resource that is fast becoming more expensive to produce, harder to find, or both. In fact, we see an alarming number of examples depletion of critical resources that almost exactly mirror the oil story. First we went after the easy and or high quality stuff, then the progressively trickier, deeper and or more dilute stuff. The bottom line is this: we, as a species, all over the globe, have already mined the richest ores, found the easiest energy sources, and farmed the richest soils that our Environment has to offer. We have taken several hundreds of millions of years of natural ore body, fossil energy deposition, aquifer accumulation, soil creation, and animal population growth -- and largely burned through them in the few years since oil was discovered. It is safe to say that in human terms, once these are gone, man, they’re gone. So, if we are getting less and less net energy for our efforts, and the other basic resources we need to support exponential economic growth are requiring a lot more energy to extract because they are depleting, then does it make sense to keep piling up exponentially more money and debt? Isn't it just common sense to observe that money and debt have to exist in some sort of relationship and proportion to primary and secondary wealth?

24. Population and the Environment
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) World population will continue to rise until at least 2050. Environmental impact is the product of the number of people and how much of their income and technology is devoted to either consumption or conservation. So far, the balance is far at the consumption end and, globally, environmental problems are increasing. Environmentalism has not come close to counteracting the footprint of a billion extra people every dozen years. The only massive success has been the decline in global fertility. People want fewer children, the contraceptive technology is available, and the cost is minimal. The only realistic possibility for ameliorating the environmental crisis might be to facilitate the continued decline of fertility. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Course Retrospective 10:26 - Chapter 2.

The Industrial Revolution (18-19th Century)
Introduction to some of the elements of the Industrial Revolution, more on this subject to come! The economic developments of the 1800s saw the development of agrarian and handicraft economies in Europe and America transform into industrial urbanised ones. The term to describe this phenomenon would be known as the ‘Industrial Revolution’ and was first used by French writers, but made popular by English economic historian Arnold Toynbee.

Public Lecture 2018_February_Andrew Bloodworth
Close to the edge? Approaching new frontiers for mineral and metal resources Population growth, urbanisation and technological transitions are creating increasing demand for minerals and metals. These powerful drivers are likely to sustain this growing material demand up to and beyond the middle of the century. Supply from existing mines can only satisfy demand up to a certain point, after which commodity prices will rise and the market will look for new sources of supply. Commodity price increases also drive innovations in science and technology. These innovations will unlock new metal and mineral resources, pushing development toward the frontiers of possibility. This lecture will explore some of these new resource frontiers and examine the technological, economic, social and environmental factors which may encourage or constrain development. Throughout human history, mining of minerals and metals has always taken place at geographical and technological frontiers, close to the limit of what is possible. Unprecedented material demand has a strong correlation with human-induced environmental change. Are moves toward these new resource frontiers pushing us toward the edge, to the environmental limits of our planet, or do some directions offer the possibility of a more sustainable future? Speaker Andrew Bloodworth, British Geological Survey, Science Director for Minerals and Waste As BGS Science Director for Minerals and Waste, Andrew is responsible for all BGS research related to mineral resources and the geological disposal of radioactive waste. Andrew’s own interests include resource security, critical minerals and the impact of mining on the developing world. He has worked extensively in Africa and was formerly Mining Advisor to the UK Department for International Development. Andrew has been a Fellow since 1995 and a Chartered Geologist. He is also Associate Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute, and a member of the UK Minerals Forum, the Confederation of British Industry Minerals Group and the Mineral Resources Expert Group of EuroGeosurveys.

Population, Sustainability, and Malthus: Crash Course World History 215
In which John Green teaches you about population. So, how many people can reasonably live on the Earth? Thomas Malthus got it totally wrong in the 19th century, but for some reason, he keeps coming up when we talk about population. In 1800, the human population of the Earth passed 1 billion, and Thomas Malthus posited that growth had hit its ceiling, and the population would level off and stop growing. He was totally right. Just kidding, he was totally wrong! There are like 7 billion people on the planet now! John will teach a little about how Malthus made his calculations, and explain how Malthus came up with the wrong answer. As is often the case, it has to do with making projections based on faulty assumptions. Man, people do that a lot.

018 - Land Use In this video Paul Andersen explains how land is developed for human use. Urbanization has occurred through the last century as people have moved to cities in large numbers. Transportation and the arrival of the car have led to urban sprawl and urban blight. Smart growth can be used to mediate some of the ecosystem impacts. Land is also preserved in parks, refuges, and wilderness areas. Do you speak another language?

Environmental effects of fishing | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Environmental effects of fishing Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ In case you don't find one that you were looking for, put a comment. This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The environmental impact of fishing includes issues such as the availability of fish, overfishing, fisheries, and fisheries management; as well as the impact of fishing on other elements of the environment, such as by-catch. These issues are part of marine conservation, and are addressed in fisheries science programs. There is a growing gap between the supply of fish and demand, due in part to world population growth.The journal Science published a four-year study in November 2006, which predicted that, at prevailing trends, the world would run out of wild-caught seafood in 2048. The scientists stated that the decline was a result of overfishing, pollution and other environmental factors that were reducing the population of fisheries at the same time as their ecosystems were being annihilated. Yet again the analysis has met criticism as being fundamentally flawed, and many fishery management officials, industry representatives and scientists challenge the findings, although the debate continues. Many countries, such as Tonga, the United States, Australia and Bahamas, and international management bodies have taken steps to appropriately manage marine resources.Reefs are also being destroyed by overfishing because of the huge nets that are dragged along the ocean floor while trawling. Many corals are being destroyed and as a consequence, the ecological niche of many species is at stake.

Mining of Massive Datasets
A Practical, Get-Your-Hands-in-the-Soil Manual Global climate change, increasing pollution, and continued rapid population growth is wreaking havoc on the planet. Stabilizing the environment at safe levels requires a large-scale restoration of damaged ecosystems. Geotherapy: Innovative Methods of Soil Fertility Restoration, Carbon Sequestration, and Reversing CO2 Increase outlines the basic concepts of geotherapy and highlights the importance of healing the biosphere’s ability to store soil carbon to prevent climate change impacts. Facing challenges head on, it addresses how and why policymakers have underestimated the long-term impacts of climate change and how we can correct the flawed carbon management mechanisms today. The book also factors in where carbon can be most effectively stored, how quickly that can be done, and the practical and policy actions needed to get there. This text presents innovative new technologies for restoring the most productive ecosystems on land while maintaining high biodiversity. It addresses processes and techniques of soil carbon restoration through biogeochemical cycling, biochar, slow-release fertilizers, weathering of minerals (olivine) and rock (basalt) powders, amendments and bio-fertilizers, and the establishment of vetiver and other perennials. Written by highly recognized professionals from every continent except Antarctica, this extensive work consists of 34 chapters covering issues that include: field experiences with biochar including a history of its research; practical uses of biochar in farming systems and the use of biochar for soil fertility enhancement; the potential of remineralization as a global movement; seawater concentrate for abundant agriculture; superior food production using sea salt and plant extracts; recycling waste nutrients using biochar and limestone; and commercially viable carbon farming. The book concludes with a chapter providing general thoughts on regreening the earth and averting a global crisis. Geotherapy: Innovative Methods of Soil Fertility Restoration, Carbon Sequestration, and Reversing CO2 Increase is an encyclopedia of ideas providing the tools needed for anyone involved with the ecological restoration and transformation of the planet.

Mining, Ecological Engineering and Metals Extraction for the 21st Century
Speaker: Margarete Kalin, Research Director and President of Boojum Research Ltd. This webinar is an introduction to a recent contribution on sustainable mining, remediation and metal extraction to the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Environmental Science, Problems and Solutions. Co- authors are M. Kalin, Michael P. Sudbury and Dr. Bryn Harris. The mining industry developed in an age when resources, space and water appeared limitless. A paradigm shift is needed in mining, remediation and extractive metal processes. Human’s insatiable appetite for metals is estimated to produce annually 20 billion tons of waste rock and tailings, covering about 1000 km2 of land. The annual consumption of fresh water is estimated to be about 80 10-9 tons, most of it will be contaminated. A collision course is on the horizon, given shortages of water and arable land and the ever-increasing global population. The key to a solution to the present un-sustainable environmental management practices lays in ecologist’s view of mining wastes as extreme primordial environments. Natural recovery processes can be supported through ecological engineering measures. This starts with exploration and through to operations, ending with decommissioning. By providing physical and chemical support to promote existing ecological processes within the wastes, we can alter the surface of minerals, thereby decreasing contaminant generation and reducing the volume of drainage by promoting run-off. Supporting the growth of indigenous biota leading to increased agglomeration of contaminant on the cell surfaces and upon death the biomass with its contaminants sinks to the sediments. Through bio-mineralization in the sediment, the metals are stabilized, potentially generating in the long-term biogenic ore bodies. All processes are implemented within the mine waste and water management area. Brief examples are given of: -Acid Reduction Using Microbiology through sediment construction; -Alterations of the mineral surface on waste rock reducing sulphide oxidation by effective nutrient supply carried into the wastes by rain and; -Biological polishing “in alkaline and acid mine waste water by a pH adjustment (if needed) and adjusting nutrient imbalances; -Estimates of reductions in waste generation using efficient metals extraction processes. Boojum’s multidisciplinary team of scientists guided by experts of the industry, has laid the foundation for ecological engineering in publications and field demonstration projects. Moving forward we need to evaluate these demonstration project to use the results to build confidence in the approach of ecological engineering, only then can we achieve the paradigm shift needed for the future of the industry. Learn about the speaker: Margarete Kalin is Research Director and President of Boojum Research Ltd. The R& D firm in collaboration with mining companies, the Canadian government and research organizations , has developed and demonstrated an ecological toolkit, that leads to a self-sustaining decommissioned mine waste and water management area. More than 100 scientific publications, numerus chapters in technical books documenting the natural processes and approximately 150 project reports are available on line at http://biblio.laurentian.ca/boojum. Margarete received the Noranda Award for Outstanding Achievements in Land Reclamation from the Canadian Land Reclamation Association and the Teck-Cominco Environmental Award from the Canadian Institute for Mining and Metallurgy (CIM). She was nominated in 2005 as a Distinguished Lecturer by the CIM. She is certified as a QEP (Qualified Environmental Professional ) by the Institute of Professional Environmental Practice and as a Senior Ecologist by the Ecological Society of America. She has been Adjunct Professor at several Canadian universities.

Events in the collective environmental memory of humanity
What are the most important events in the collective environmental memory of humanity? This is the question addressed in this video highlighting 22 events that professional environmental historians regard as turning points in the relationship between humans and the environment. Topics include deforestation, mining and oil extraction, nuclear disaster, bugs, Earth Day, a dust veil event and the invention of agriculture. The events discussed in the video move beyond the confines of human history. The earliest event is the asteroid impact that ended the age of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. At the other end of the timeline the video moves into the future and speculates about a future mega-earthquake in the Tokyo Bay area. In spatial terms, events were scattered over all five continents as well as the entire globe This video provides an introduction to some of the most prominent events in the interaction between humans and the planetary environment that have shaped history. The video is based on an article compiled and introduced by Frank Uekötter: "What Should We Remember? A Global Poll Among Environmental Historians", Global Environment, 11 (2013), pp. 184-214.

Indonesia tracks spending on Climate Change mitigation (EN)
Well into the second decade of the twenty first century, the effects of climate change are being felt across the world. Economic activity and population growth have resulted in unprecedented concentrations of green house gases in the atmosphere and led to a warming of the earth’s temperature. Sea level is rising, ocean’s acidity is increasing and the changing climate is affecting natural and human systems on all continents. In 2009, Indonesia became the first developing country to announce a cut of greenhouse gas emissions. The biggest archipelago of the world realized its vulnerability to climate change and committed to reduce emissions by 26 percent by 2020 or 41 percent with international support. With almost 250 million people, Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous nation and one of the world’s largest emitters of green house gases. Converting to clean technologies the 16th largest economy of the world will be no easy task. Emissions are expected to increase further due to a growing population and an expanding economy highly dependent on fossil fuels. Its industry, transport, housing and commerce sectors will require profound changes to become energy efficient. Since 2009, many policies, action plans and commitments have been made. But, how much is the government of Indonesia really spending on climate change mitigation? Is the money being spent in activities that can achieve the country’s ambitious emissions reduction targets? For that purpose, the Indonesian Finance Ministry, launched a budget tagging system to track financial flows to activities that mitigate climate change with the support of UNDP and UNEP. The Ministry of Finance aims at understanding whether activities that are currently being funded can achieve the emissions reduction targets. The system will put a tag and later will rate activities based on their contribution to reduce emissions. It is a way to identify how much budget has been allocated and how it has been spent. Whether it contributed to reach the country’s emission reduction target through development of financial incentives, to produce policies or for practical activities like reforestation, renewable energy, eco-efficient transportation, energy efficient buildings, waste to energy or restoration of degraded land. Indonesia is the first country of the world to have adopted such tracking system. Seven Ministries are legally required to put it in place by 2015. Spending wisely the government’s budget, and setting up the right incentives and disincentives is expected to encourage investors in technologies that reduce green house gas emissions. Investors like Mr Mohammad Baedowy and Mr Douglas Manurung.
Evidence From the Philippines on Integrating Population and Environment in Development Programs
Environmental Change and Security Program Fisheries are critical to the Philippines, not only for their environmental value, but also for their role in the livelihoods of many Philippine communities. D'Agnes noted that more than 80 percent of dietary protein in coastal communities comes from fish. Additionally, the fishing industry contributes US$1.3 billion annually to the Philippine economy. But despite the industry's large footprint, fishermen remain "the poorest of the poor in the Philippines," she said. Event speaker: Leona D'Agnes

Sustainable Population Australia WA Branch Event Intro
WATCH IN 1080 HD! Sustainable Population Australia WA held a public event on May 27 2012, with a guest speaker Prof Glenn Albrecht. Prof Albrecht spoke on the topic of "Losing Our Endemic Sense of Place: Solastalgia in Western Australia" This video you are watching is an introduction by Paddy Weaver, Vice President of SPA WA branch. It is an overview of SPA WA, its stance in relation to population issues of Australia and what has been happening to date on the issue of population in Australia. The presentation will examine the impact of a growing population and massive expansion of large-scale industrial development on the biophysical foundations of Western Australia. In addition, it will invite the audience to consider the impact on mental health of losing an endemic sense of place in WA in general, but SW WA in particular. The concept of solastalgia, or the melancholia produced when one's home environment is being desolated by forces beyond your control will also be introduced and applied. Glenn Albrecht is professor of sustainability at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. He is an environmental philosopher with both theoretical and applied interests in the relationship between ecosystem and human health. He has pioneered the research domain of 'psychoterratic' or earth related mental health conditions with the concept of 'solastalgia' or the lived experience of negative environmental change. He also has publications in the field of animal ethics and is currently researching the ethics of relocating endangered species in the face of climate change pressures. With colleagues, Nick Higginbotham (University of Newcastle) and Linda Connor (Sydney University) under Australian Research Council Discovery Project grants, he has researched the impact of mining in the Upper Hunter Region of NSW, Australia, and now, the impact of climate change on communities, again in the Hunter Region. Glenn has also been involved as a Chief Investigator in ARC Discovery Project research on the social and ethical aspects of the thoroughbred horse industry worldwide. More uploads to come for the rest of the event - I took over 1 hr of footage which will take about 30-40 HOURS to fully upload in 1440x1080 HD. I will upload this in sections. Stay tuned.

Note asupra mineritului aurului in Noua Zeelanda
Note asupra mineritului aurului in Noua Zeelanda New Zealanders took to the streets by the tens of thousands on May 1, 2010, to protest a government proposal to open national parks and other scenic areas to mining exploration. News reports called the estimated 40,000 marchers in Auckland, the nation's largest city, the biggest public demonstration in New Zealand in a generation. In a country with an estimated population of 4.4 million, it was an overwhelming display of public sentiment Mining is promoted as a way to boost local development. However, a study of some 100 rural communities in the United States between 1970 and 2000 that derived at least 20% of their labor income from mining found that they had done poorly compared to other rural counties. Mining counties had a slower growth in aggregate income, ranging, depending on the decade, from 25% to 60% slower than the national average for rural counties. Unemployment rates were significantly higher, sometimes three times higher. The boom-and-bust cycle and the short-term duration of many mines leave behind unemployed workers, often with only basic skills not competitive in other job markets. The slower economic growth, lower incomes, and higher unemployment rates are accompanied by slower population growth. Local residents are determined to protect Coromandel from any more mining and are very concerned about the toxic legacy recently identified in a subdivision in Thames. "We have enough issues to deal with from historical mining, the last thing we need is Newmont expanding out of Waihi into our precious conservation places." But Newmont has repeatedly said any new interest is solely in underground mining. eg its Press release 15 March 2010 says "Newmont's exploration interest is in high grade deposits ...that can be mined ....by underground methods." Some environmental protests occurred during the 1987 consenting process for further mine operations. In 2001, subsidence in the area caused a collapse of a house, and the operating company has recently agreed to pay compensation to about 130 households for various negative effects due to noise, blast vibrations and dust (Martha mine may test goodwill, - The Dominion Post, 2009) Coromandel Watchdog says:...."Latest figures show true extent of toxic legacy from Coromandel mine Toxic heavy metal contamination to waterways from the Tui Mine near Te Aroha by acid mine drainage has been measured at an alarming 5000kg each year, even thought the mine closed nearly 40 years ago. In 2007, 5000 kg of heavy metals -- zinc, iron, manganese and 100 kg of arsenic, cadmium, and lead was released from the Tui mine. The Tui and Tunakohoia streams which flow into the Waihou River, and from there into the Firth of Thames, are totally devoid of fish and invertebrate life and are unsafe for humans. This annual dose of contamination is likely to have been occurring at similar levels since the Tui mine closed in 1973. Heavy metals are continuously released into the waterways from approximately 135,000 tonnes of mine waste (tailings) and two small mining tunnels. "The alarming extent of the mining pollution is revealed in a March 2010 Assessment of Environmental Effects. Plans are being prepared to clean up the Tui Mine contamination at a cost to taxpayers of approximately $17.5 million," said Coromandel Watchdog spokesperson Denis Tegg. "It is NZ's most contaminated site." "When you compare Tui's 135,000 tonnes of tailings to the current 40 million tonnes of tailings at Waihi's Martha Mine, the potential threat to waterways is a very frightening scenario," Mr. Tegg said. "Newmont Waihi Gold's Martha Mine has generated tailings approximately 300 times larger than those at the Tui mine. Using the Tui mine costings as a benchmark, if just 10% of the Martha mine tailings required similar remedial work in the future the cost to taxpayers would be approximately $500 million," said Mr. Tegg. "Newmont has provided bonds of approximately $40 million. But only a $10 million bond will be available in the long term, and even this is "reviewable". About 10 years after mine closure, Newmont will hand title of the tailings dam to a local Trust and the mining company will wipe its hands of any further liability." "If heavy metal pollution begins at Waihi any time in the next 100 years, taxpayers will be faced with an unprecedented environmental catastrophe, and huge clean up costs. This is why the wild beauty of the Coromandel Peninsula should remain protected from mining, and why new tailings dams should never again be allowed" said Mr. Tegg. "There are many examples of toxic pollution being caused by modern tailings dams in the USA and in other countries with high environmental standards. The threat of the Martha tailings contaminating waterways is a very real one." (presented by http://watchdog.org.nz/)
