Hindi Animation on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Process
 
18:34
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.

12. Human and Environmental Impacts
 
01:11:11
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.

24. Population and the Environment
 
01:15:08
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.

Population, Sustainability, and Malthus: Crash Course World History 215
 
12:51
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.

The shocking danger of mountaintop removal – and why it must end
 
14:01
"What is the ethical obligation of the scientist who believes populations are in danger?" That was the question that professor Michael Hendryx asked himself when he began to uncover the detrimental health effects of mountain top removal in Appalachia. Mountaintop removal mining—the practice of blowing off the tops of mountains in order to access coal with lower sulfur content—holds fewer health risks for miners, but the health implications for people living in close proximity to MTR locations have long been unknown, and even disputed. With their research, Michael and his team found evidence that the populations living near mountaintop removal sites saw significantly higher rates of birth defects, serious disease, and mortality. However, Michael's research met strong opposition from the coal industry and from local coal country governments, who didn't want his findings to be shared. Tune in to Michael's 2017 TEDMED Talk to find out how he's working to stand up for the Appalachians living near MTR sites and to establish the public health consequences of coal mining once and for all.

The economic developments of the 1800s saw the development of agrarian and handicraft economies in Europe and America transform into industrial urbanised ones.

🇳🇱 🇺🇸 Food for thought: Food security, population growth & over-farming | Earthrise
 
25:12
There are currently 7.6 billion people on the planet, and they all need feeding. However, producing crops and rearing livestock is hugely environmentally unsustainable. Nearly one third of the Earth’s land is severely degraded and 90% of our oceans are quickly being emptied of fish. The pace of harvest is relentless and with the worldwide population expected to grow to 10 billion by 2050, it is clear that our planet won’t be able to keep up the pace of food production. In this episode of earthrise we first head to Connecticut to meet a commercial fisherman turned climate farmer who has developed a system of polyculture vertical agriculture in the ocean, called 3D farming. We then travel to Holland where scientists are developing a way to avoid farms and livestock altogether by creating meat in a lab. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

Environmental effects of fishing | Wikipedia audio article
 
18:06
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.

Environmental impacts of agriculture
 
00:58
Climate change is one of the critical issues facing the world. Roughly 30% of greenhouse gas emissions come from the agriculture food value chain. We have to address that 30%. It has to be farmers, working together with industry, food companies, retailers, government regulators, and NGOs, coming together with different ideas on how do we solve this. There are so many important elements to this value chain, it’s complicated, it’s different in different parts of the world, but it all has to work as a system, to deliver the food that’s needed all over the world, to a growing population. But, at the same time, do it in a way that not only protects our planet, but makes the planet better. What are the environmental impacts of agriculture? Erik Fyrwald talks about managing the environmental impacts of agriculture.

The Crash Course - Chapter 23 - The Environment - Depleting Resources
 
05:41
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?

Our Houses Are Our Gold - Shut Down Mintails Mining Operation.
 
15:23
A community populated by people who mostly survive on indigent grants fights the open cast mining practices of Australian owned Mining Operation - Mintails - which is doing unrestrained blasting only 150 meters away from their homes. This community say that a process of public participation was not engaged in and they were not consulted by government officials or company officials about the open cast mining and blasting. They simply heard blasts and sustained structural damage to their homes. Now the community are demanding that the mining operation close down completely as they see no solution to this destruction of their homes and impact on their health. They are not impressed with the court interdict obtained by Mogale City to close the mine while further inspections are done - calling this a smokescreen to destract from obvious irregularities in the granting of the mining license by both government officials and Mintails They have repeatedly requested a copy of the Environmental Impact Assessment - but this has been refused on the grounds that this is ..... The struggle against this dangerous and destructive mining operation continues and the community want the truth to be revealed and those involved in the irregularities to be arrested and they want the mine shut down with immediate affect.

The process involves the high-pressure injection of 'fracking fluid' (primarily water, containing sand or other proppants suspended with the aid of thickening agents) into a wellbore to create cracks in the deep-rock formations through which natural gas, petroleum, and brine will flow more freely. When the hydraulic pressure is removed from the well, small grains of hydraulic fracturing proppants (either sand or aluminium oxide) hold the fractures open. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "What is Bhima koregaon issue? | Current Affairs-6th Class" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HH4smPm8G5s -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

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.

Public Lecture 2018_February_Andrew Bloodworth
 
01:07:00
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.

Goa's Mines Bleed Its Environment Dry
 
03:03
Unmonitored mining has boomed in Goa in recent years and has had dire effects on the environment. The Goa mining industry is thriving, but its impact on nature and the local population is disastrous. 8% of the state surface is already being mined, mostly to extract iron ore that is exported to China. Over 825 mining sites exist throughout the state, and a large number of projects have been given government's clearance. The very large scale and intensive nature of mining exploitation is a serious challenge to Goa's fragile ecosystem. Indeed, 90 % of Goa's mining leases are within notified wildlife sanctuaries and reserve forests. Large areas of fertile agricultural lands have also been diverted for mining. Huge quantities of mining particles are deposited in rivers, contaminating water sources. Devidas Gaonkar, our Community Correspondent in Goa, has been personally affected by the issue. Belonging to a tribal community, he has witnessed how mining exploitation has encroached on natural resources that are so crucial to sustain life in Goa. His village has been flooded recently because of this excessive mining in the area. In his video, Devidas gives us a powerful and articulate description on how mining is impacting the environment. Deforestation due to mining activity is causing soil erosion and siltation, increasing the risk of flooding and impacting ground water, potentially causing water shortage. With his video, Devidas is adding his voice to the chorus of activists who incessantly warn the government against the risk of excessive mining exploitation. Numerous common people like Devidas have also been courageously protesting mining in the streets and blocking vehicles passing through their villages. Devidas wishes his video to similarly raise awareness, with the hope that the government will soon put a halt to large-scale unmonitored mining, which is proving fatal for Goa's vegetation, water and biodiversity.

The water shortages in Syria turned into five successive years of drought, prolonging the environmental issues that Syria already had.The Assad regime (Arab Socialist Ba'at Party – Syrian Region) has been in power from 1970–Present. Hafez al-Assad ruled as President from 1971-2000, and following his death passed the power to his son, Bashar al-Assad. The lack of change in policies and agenda setting is said to have had a contribution in the five successive years of drought. Also, the continuous ‘stability and peace’ movement for four decades that was instilled by the Assad Regime transformed into institutionalizing fear and violence amongst its own people had a contribution in the 2011 Arab spring. The 2011 Arab Spring which began as a civil uprising quickly transformed into a full blown Civil War. Unfortunately, the constant coercion of the Assad Regime – from the Hama Massacre of 1982 to the consistent incommunicado detention centers where civilians that dare speak ill or in opposition to the government are being tortured and dehumanized – has been the main perpetuator to the current Civil War in Syria, unknowingly causing the current detrimental state of the environment.The outbreak of the Civil War in Syria has been detrimental to the economical, social and environmental life. The toxicity of weapons used during the war such as mortar bombs, artillery shells, barrel bombs, aircraft bombs and missiles as been the leading cause for the damages to Syria's oil production, industrial areas, infrastructure, waste management. Therefore, the Ministry of Environmental Affairs in Syria (State Minister: Nazira Farah Sarkis) has participated in the United Nations Conference to create the Sustainable Development Plan. This plan was created as an effort to combat desertification, biodiversity, and climate change. Unfortunately, at the General Assembly, it was declared that the plan had failed in terms of the set backs that were found within the degrading land and eroding development gains. These environmental issues were ultimately related to the Syrian war.

For staying updated by my new videos please #SUBCRIBE #SHARE and #LIKE. 🎤 Narrated by #MOHITRANGLANI 📢 Disclaimer - It's not made by me. Only I dubbed it from English to Hindi. Description - Deforestation  Satellite image of deforestation in progress in eastern Bolivia. Worldwide, 10% of wilderness areaswere lost between 1990 and 2015.[1] Deforestation, clearance, or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use.[2] Examples of deforestation include conversion of forestland to farms,ranches, or urban use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests.[3] About 30 percent of Earth's land surface is covered by forests.[4] Deforestation occurs for multiple reasons: trees are cut down to be used for building or sold as fuel (sometimes in the form ofcharcoal or timber), while cleared land is used as pasture for livestock and plantation. The removal of trees without sufficientreforestation has resulted in habitat damage,biodiversity loss, and aridity. It has adverse impacts on biosequestration of atmosphericcarbon dioxide. Deforestation has also been used in war to deprive the enemy of vital resources and cover for its forces. Modern examples of this were the use of Agent Orange by the British military in Malayaduring the Malayan Emergency and the United States military in Vietnam during theVietnam War. As of 2005, net deforestation rates have ceased to increase in countries with a per capita GDP of at leastUS$4,600.[5][6] Deforested regions typically incur significant adverse soil erosion and frequently degrade into wasteland. Disregard of ascribed value, lax forest management, and deficient environmental laws are some of the factors that allow deforestation to occur on a large scale. In many countries, deforestation–both naturally occurring and human-induced–is an ongoing issue.[7] Deforestation causes extinction, changes to climatic conditions,desertification, and displacement of populations as observed by current conditions and in the past through the fossilrecord.[8] More than half of all plant and land animal species in the world live in tropical forests.[9] Between 2000 and 2012, 2.3 million square kilometres (890,000 sq mi) of forests around the world were cut down.[10] As a result of deforestation, only 6.2 million square kilometres (2.4 million square miles) remain of the original 16 million square kilometres (6 million square miles) of forest that formerly covered the Earth.[10] An area the size of a soccer football pitch is cleared from theAmazon rainforest every minute, with 136 million acres (55 million hectares) of rainforest cleared for animal agriculture overall.[11]
