City Pollution Plumes Global Transport Over 100 Years
The animation models air pollution plumes from 35 major population centres during the past century. It shows the atmospheric emission and transport of a 10-day lifetime tracer, scaled to CO emissions and population growth. It is meant to convey the rapid expansion of population living in cities during the 20th century and that megacity air pollution is not any more a local phenomenon but rather one which has global impact. From local air pollution to global change in one century. Technical details: The EMAC atmospheric-chemistry model was used with grid resolution approx. 1x1 degree, 19 vertical levels, a time step of 6 minutes and simulation time condensed to 1 year. It required a week of running time on CyI's planck cluster.

Active Pollution in the Little Conemaugh River
It seems like Norfolk Southern likes to throw their old ties right in the river... and then down stream even further a slag company decides it's cool to just dump crap right back into the Little Conemaugh paying no mind to the millions of dollars upstream in AMD treatment and cleanup efforts. Reason why you can't hear sound on the video with the coal truck dumping the blackness into the water is mainly due to language. I was yelling at it and didn't want to post profanity to youtube :)

The 20-Year-Old With a Plan to Rid the Sea of Plastic
Subscribe to MOTHERBOARD: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-To-MOTHERBOARD Boyan Slat's story is not quite that of a 20-year-old Wunderkind who magically found a potential fix to a longstanding problem. It's perhaps more accurately described as a combination of personal dedication and trial and error. When going through his old prototypes for a technology that would passively scrub oceans of plastic, he's almost embarrassed of his early concepts. "But that's what science is really," Slat said. "It's a work in progress." The crowdfunding campaign behind Slat's Ocean Cleanup Project was announced with strong bidding, no matter: "With two million dollars we can make a theoretical concept come true." With just two days left in his campaign, Slat successfully collected the funding for his project, bringing him one step closer to realizing a vision of plastic-free oceans.

Frontiers: Air Pollution Kills! So What?
April 10, 2013 -- Julian Marshall, IonE Resident Fellow and Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering, College of Science and Engineering Urban air pollution is one of the top 15 causes of death globally, responsible for around 1.7 percent of deaths. How can we reduce its health effects? Marshall will discuss three investigations into that question: (1) Marshall and colleagues have found that air pollution is related to the physical layout of an urban area, raising the question of whether urban planning can help cities meet air quality goals. (2) In developing countries, indoor air can be especially polluted, owing to combustion of solid fuels for heating and cooking. In a rural village in Karnataka, India, Marshall and colleagues have studied whether a higher-efficiency stove improves indoor air pollution, health effectsand climate-relevant emissions. (3) Marshall and colleagues also have explored how shifting from conventional fuels to biofuels impacts air quality and who is exposed to pollution. The goal is to understand whether biofuels are better for human health and the environment than the fossil fuels they displace. A constant theme through these topics is environmental justice: which groups have higher exposures to air pollution, and how exposure correlates with attributes such as race and income. Read the recap here: http://environment.umn.edu/event/three-questions-about-air-pollution/
C&D Waste (Construction & Demolition) Recycling Process
DEFINITION 1.1. C&D waste is generated whenever/wherever any type construction/demolition activity takes place; like renovation/construction of residential/office building(s), road(s), under bridge(s), flyover(s), subway(s) etc. Construction waste: mainly leftovers from new construction materials (e.g. cutoffs, damaged materials), packaging waste, used materials during construction and all other wastes typical for activities on a construction site. Demolition waste: collection of all construction materials from a building, after removal of certain (hazardous) parts (e.g. asbestos, tar, PVC). DW is much larger in volume than CW. The estimated magnitude of the C&D waste stream varies because of several factors. These factors include the differing definitions of C&D waste and the range of accurate sampling procedures found in both research and practice. C&D material will be defined as: -Cement concrete [demolished -Broken Bricks -Broken Cement plaster -Rubble -Broken Stone (marble, granite, sand stone) -Soil -Sand -Gravel etc 2. REQUIREMENTS 2.1. A Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan that shows how the project will recycle 100% of the waste material as specified. 2.2. Set up a recycling plant within the project zone. 2.3. Minimum recycling capability of 150MT per day. 2.4. Using a combination of technologies that includes crushing, screening, and separation etc. that will maximize waste treatment and would ensure zero landfill of waste. 2.5. Meeting the Noise Pollution Norms as per the Standards and Guidelines of The Central Pollution Control Board. 2.6. Meeting the Air Pollution Norms (including dust levels) as per the Standards and Guidelines of Central Pollution Control Board. 2.7. The project should be cost effective. 2.8. The final product price should not exceed market price for similar product. Most important- Recycling of 100% of the Construction & Demolition (C&D) waste with green technology.

Delhi's dangerous air pollution problem - Here's how you can compensate!
A feature story on the organic cultivation of Mr Bhushan, Sarvodhaya Enclave, New Delhi The advantage Delhi sought to gain from a series of environment-friendly measures, such as its Metro network and fleet of CNG buses and autos, has been lost with the levels of pollutants in the city having reached alarming levels, experts say. And the main cause for this, they feel, is the addition of more and more vehicles every day. Delhi has failed to achieve its own target of 30% green cover by 2013. The government's climate change action plan aimed at achieving similar goals but it (the plan) has now been modified with "a view to working towards the future."

Water Cycle for Kids | #aumsum #kids #education #science #learn
Our topic for today is Water Cycle. The Sun heats up the water from oceans, lakes and rivers and water changes into water vapor by the process of evaporation. Plants also lose water in the form of water vapor from their leaves into the air by the process of transpiration. As the water vapor rises up into the air, it starts cooling down and forms tiny water droplets. These water droplets come together to form clouds. This process is called condensation. When the clouds start getting heavy and cannot hold the water droplets anymore, they fall back to the earth in the form of rain, hail or snow. This process is called precipitation. Some of the water that falls on the earth seeps into the ground. This water is available to us in the form of groundwater. The remaining water falls back into oceans, lakes, rivers and seas. This process is called collection. Then, the sun starts heating up this water once again. This circulation of water is called water cycle.

Government announces plan to reduce toxic dust levels by 2024
The government has come up with a long-term plan to tackle Korea's fine dust problem. The Korean Peninsula was blanketed in smog last month, forcing citizens to endure extremely harmful air pollution and poor visibility. Sohn Jung-in reports. CG By 2024: Reduce fine dust to 30 mg, ultrafine dust to 20 mg A soupy haze blankets the city and people wear masks to combat the thick layer of ultrafine dust particles that are thinner than the diameter of a hair and contaminated with hazardous toxins which can cause health problems. To combat Korea's growing air pollution problem, the government has come up with a long-term plan to lower fine dust levels, which are considered some of the worst in the OECD. "Korea's air quality is very low compared with other major global cities or other countries in the WHO,... and it's about two to three times worse than the global standard." The government is aiming to lower the fine dust concentration level from the current 100 micrograms per cubic meter, which exceeds air quality standards, to a level similar to London's 30 micrograms per cubic meter by 2024. It is also aiming to reduce to 20 micrograms the level of ultrafine particles that are small enough to penetrate deep into the human body. It also plans to reduce fine dust emissions by 35 percent and ultrafine dust emissions by 45 percent over the next ten years. To achieve these goals, the government has set aside nearly 4-point-3 billion U.S. dollars. The main part of the plan focuses on automobile emissions, which account for more than half of all atmospheric pollution in the air. The government will increase the ratio of eco-friendly cars in metropolitan areas to 20 percent by 2024, and to 50 percent at public offices. They will also install 100 additional centers that monitor nitrogen and sulfur oxides emission levels from factories. The environment ministry says that if the plan is carried out successfully, it expects the number of deaths from air pollution to be cut in half, from 20-thousand per year to 10-thousand, which also translates to a savings of 570-billion dollars per year in public health and related costs. Sohn Jung-in, Arirang News.

Brazil's major and medium size metropolitan areas face increasing problems of water pollution. Coastal cities such as Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Recife suffer effects of upstream residential and industrial sewage contaminating feeder rivers, lakes, and the ocean. In 2000, only 35% of collected wastewater received any treatment. For example, the Tietê River, which runs through the São Paulo metropolitan area (17 million inhabitants), has returned to its 1990 pollution levels. Despite the support from the IDB, the World Bank and Caixa Econômica Federal in a US$400 million clean up effort, the level of dissolved oxygen has returned to the critical level of 1990 at 0 mg per liter due to increased levels of unregulated sewerage, phosphorus, and ammonia nitrogen discharged into the river. The state water company Sabesp projects that a minimum of R$3 billion (US$1.7bn) would be necessary to clean up the river. The South and Southeast regions of Brazil experience water scarcity due to super exploitation and misuse of surface water resources, mostly attributable to heavy pollution from sewage, leaking landfills, and industrial waste. Bbc news fox new morning news network abc nbc news Bloomberg daily today breaking global world brazil Olympics 2016 Water pollution is also derived from ethanol production. Due to the size of the industry, its agroindustrial activity in growing, harvesting, and processing sugarcane generates water pollution from the application of fertilizers and agrochemicals, soil erosion, cane washing, fermentation, distillation, the energy producing units installed in mills and by other minor sources of waste water. The two greatest sources of water pollution from ethanol production come from mills in the form of waste water from washing sugarcane stems prior to passing through mills, and vinasse, produced in distillation. These sources increase the biochemical oxygen demand in the waters where they are discharged which leads to the depletion of dissolved oxygen in the water and often causes anoxia. Legislation has banned the direct discharge of vinasse onto surface waters, leading it to be mixed with waste water from the sugarcane washing process to be reused as organic fertilizer on sugarcane fields. Despite this ban, some small sugarcane mills still discharge vinasse into streams and rivers due to a lack of transportation and application resources. Furthermore, vinasse is sometimes mishandled in storage and transport in mills. RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Olympic sports federations say they will be monitoring efforts to clean up the polluted waters around Rio de Janeiro to prevent health risks to athletes at the 2016 Games. An Associated Press report this week showed nearly 70 percent of Rio's sewage is untreated and dumped into iconic beach areas like Copacabana and Ipanema and picturesque Guanabara Bay. Those waters will host several of Rio's events at the Olympics and Paralympics. Rio organizers have been pressed by the International Olympic Committee to speed the pace of venue construction. Cleaning the water could add to delays in preparing for the games, which will cost about $15 billion in public and private money.

Smart City Limits: How Much Can Big Data Really Do?
City governments have used big data to do everything from predicting hot-spots for criminal activity, to monitoring the spread of disease, to mapping and tracking infrastructure needs. As broadband access, cell phone ownership, and surveillance technologies expand around the globe, cities have access to new near-constant streams of data about how urban dwellers move and interact with their environments and economies. Advanced computing provides us with new power and speed in terms of understanding massive flows of data, but as cities race to get “smarter” by capturing and interpreting more and more inputs, what are the limits on what this type of information can tell us about the complicated social organisms that are cities? Are there times when less data might actually be better? Featuring: Greg Lindsay,(Moderator), Jennifer Pahlka, Luis Bettencourt and Guruduth Banavar

Detergent pollution in Yamuna River
In 1909 the waters of the Yamuna were distinguishable as "clear blue", as compared to the silt-laden yellow of the Ganges. However, due to high density population growth and rapid industrialization today Yamuna is one of the most polluted rivers in the world, especially around New Delhi, the capital of India, which dumps about 58% of its waste into the river. New Delhi generates 1,900 million litre per day (MLD) of sewage. Though numerous attempts have been made to process it, the efforts have proven to be futile. Although the government of India has spent nearly $500 million to clean up the river, the Yamuna continues to be polluted with garbage while most sewage treatment facilities are underfunded or malfunctioning. In addition, the water in this river remains stagnant for almost nine months in a year, aggravating the situation. Delhi alone contributes around 3,296 MLD of sewage in the river. The government of India over the next five years has prepared plans to rebuild and repair the sewage system and the drains that empty into the river. To address river pollution, certain measures of river cleaning have been taken by the Government's Ministry of Environment and Forests in twelve towns of Haryana, eight towns of Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi, under the Yamuna Action Plan (YAP) which has been implemented since 1993 by the National River Conservation Directorate (NRCD) of the Ministry of Environment and Forests. The Japan Bank for International Cooperation is participating in the Yamuna Action Plan in 15 of the above 21 towns (excluding 6 towns of Haryana included later on the direction of Supreme Court of India) with soft loan assistance of 17.773 billion Japanese Yen (equivalent to about Rs. 700 crore INR) while the Government of India is providing the funds for the remaining 6 towns added later. In 2007 the Indian government's plans to repair sewage lines were predicted to improve the water quality of the river 90% by the year 2010. The Yamuna is the largest tributary river of the Ganges (Ganga) in northern India. Originating from the Yamunotri Glacier at a height of 6,387 metres on the south western slopes of Banderpooch peaks in the uppermost region of the Lower Himalayas in Uttarakhand, it travels a total length of 1,376 kilometers (855 mi) and has a drainage system of 366,223 square kilometres (141,399 sq mi), 40.2% of the entire Ganges Basin, before merging with the Ganges at Triveni Sangam, Allahabad, the site for the Kumbha Mela every twelve years. It crosses several states, Uttarakhand, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, passing by Himachal Pradesh and later Delhi, and meets several of its tributaries on the way, including Tons, its largest and longest tributary in Uttarakhand, Chambal, which has its own large basin, followed by Sindh, the Betwa, and Ken. Most importantly it creates the highly fertile alluvial, Yamuna-Ganges Doab region between itself and the Ganges in the Indo-Gangetic plain. Nearly 57 million people depend on the Yamuna waters. With an annual flow of about 10,000 cubic billion metres (cbm) and usage of 4,400 cbm (of which irrigation constitutes 96 per cent), the river accounts for more than 70 per cent of Delhi's water supplies. Just like the Ganges, the Yamuna too is highly venerated in Hinduism and worshipped as goddess Yamuna, throughout its course. In Hindu mythology, she is the daughter of Sun God, Surya, and sister of Yama, the God of Death, hence also known as Yami and according to popular legends, bathing in its sacred waters frees one from the torments of death.

China suffers land loss from pollution
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Soil pollution is a prevalent issue in China, and high levels of heavy metals have been detected in rice and vegetables. China's land survey results have long been a "state secret", and many people are suspicious that soil contamination levels in China may be more severe than recently reported. China's Deputy Minister of Land and Resources revealed the national land survey results during Monday's State Council press conference, a first since 1996. The official said some 50 million mu (8.2 million acres) of soil is medium to heavily polluted and unfit for farming, but he left out many further details. Mainland Chinese media reported that the official didn't elaborate on the 50 million mu of polluted soil and provided no comparable figure, but indicated heavy metals as the main pollutants in industrial and mining areas in the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, and the old industrial bases in northeastern China. Wall Street Journal says that the pollution figure equals about 2.5% of China's total arable land in 2012. Meaning heavy pollution has made 2.5% of China's arable land unfit for farming. This figure does not include mildly contaminated soil that could also harm crops. A book published by China's Ministry of Environmental Protection in 2013 titled, Soil Pollution and Human Health, says 20 million hectares of arable land is heavy-metal polluted, accounting for one sixth of the total cultivated area. That equates to 13 million tons of heavy metal contaminated foods and crops per year. Scholars say soil pollution is especially acute in Hunan Province, which is known as China's rice bowl. Among the heavy metals, cadmium is considered to be the most harmful. The New York Times reports that according to one market research company, Hunan produced 17 million tons of rice in 2012, "16 percent of the national total". Huang Yuming, associate environmental sciences professor at Taiwan National Chung Hsing University: "Cadmium is toxic even at low levels and poses greater risk of toxicity, as crops absorb it more easily. The tainted rice will lead to nerve pain, kidney failure, and osteoporosis. China cannot avoid the issue of food safety." Experts say that soil pollution in China is mainly caused by wastewater discharges, accumulated industrial solid waste, pesticides, and excessive use of fertilizers. Huang Yuming: "Industrial wastewater must be strictly controlled, because polluted water leads to soil pollution and the further spread of pollutants. Some factories have no ethics. Their randomly disposed industrial waste spreads the pollutants. Fertilizers are also one of targets that need to be controlled. Taiwan has banned some of the fertilizers but the Chinese mainlanders continue using them." The Land bureau also said that the land problem stems from pollution and industrialization. The total arable land figure went down about 0.2% from 2006 to 2009. China's stock of arable land has fallen to 1.52 mu per capita and is less than half the world average per capita. In the past 13 years, 41.78 million mu (6.9 million acres) of high-quality arable land have been urbanized. Huang Yuming: "The arable land should be avoided in urbanization. The urbanization of China's farm land has been scary. They occupy huge areas whenever a new city is developed. You can imagine how much farm land has been lost." The Land Ministry says an initiative to treat tainted soil and convert degraded farm lands into forest and grass lands with annual budget of tens of billions will be launched. But there are criticisms that the massive soil contamination and arable land loss is caused by local governments condoning industry activity on pollution issues and making profits through arable land grabs in the name of raising GDP. Without correcting these problems, yet engaging in the expensive recovery of tainted soil, the true intentions of the authorities are abundantly clear. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Environmental Impacts of International Transport: Session 2 recording
Globalisation has accelerated economic growth and that growth has been accompanied by large increases in emissions of air pollutants, greenhouse gases and other environmental impacts. The wealth created by growth makes it possible to reduce these impacts considerably and tools to achieve this through cleaner technologies and better management of resources are available. Their deployment is largely a political decision but the instruments chosen to implement environmental protection policies should be designed to maximise welfare, reducing pollution as cost-effectively as possible closer to optimal levels. Globalisation has changed patterns of transport. The distances goods and passengers travel have increased overall. Falling transport costs have increased the tendency for economic activity to concentrate in large cities and globalisation has thus tended to concentrate environmental impacts on the access roads to major cities and their port and airport gateways. Air pollution and noise nuisance are critical issues in the development of many of these gateways. This workshop will also examine GHG emission reduction potentials for aviation and maritime transport and will explore how best these potentials might be met. The 2008 International Transport Forum examined policies to mitigate CO2 emissions from surface transport. Globalisation has also been accompanied by conspicuous increases in GHG emissions from both aviation and maritime transport. Addressing emissions from these sectors will be prominent at the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen in December 2009, where negotiations to renew or replace the Kyoto Protocol will take place. The workshop will assess the options for effective policies. Chaired by Anthony Venables, Oxford University, with presentations and interventions from Per Magne Einang, Marintek; Jasper Faber, CE Delft; Jos Dings, T&E; Harald Diaz-Bone, UNFCC; Callum Thomas, Manchester University; Christian Dumas, Airbus; Andy Kershaw, British Airways and Aviation Global Deal; Yoshitsugu Hayashi, Nagoya University, (Slides attached); Philippe Crist, ITF.
