Air Pollution for Kids | It's AumSum Time
Air Pollution. Due to cutting of trees, burning of wood, burning of fossil fuels, smoke released from factories and industries, smoke released from vehicles our air is getting polluted. Due to air pollution, human beings suffer from a number of diseases like Asthma, Bronchitis, Cancer. Air pollution also affects the growth of plants. Air pollution causes damage to our beautiful historical monuments. To reduce pollution, we should take some preventive measures: Plant more trees. Avoid bursting firecrackers. Make more use of public transport. Service your vehicles regularly. Factories and power plants should be set up far from residential areas to reduce air pollution.

City Pollution Growth - Megacity Pollution Plumes
From local air pollution to global change in one century. 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. 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.

Air Pollution: Its Impact on Health and Possible Solutions - Professor Chris Whitty
Lung disease, heart disease, stroke, dementia and learning difficulties have been associated with different forms of air pollution including gasses and particulate matter. It is a difficult policy area because there is an economic and social cost to tackling it, so there is a trade-off. This lecture will consider the evidence for different forms of air pollution causing diseases, and outline some of the potential solutions. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/air-pollution-its-impact-on-health-and-possible-solutions Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

City of Ventura's 2017 GREEN SCHOOL Programs
Recognizing the importance of educating Ventura’s youth to establish lifelong sustainable habits and practices, the City of Ventura Environmental Sustainability Division and Ventura Water offers free educational presentations to all local K-12 schools, after-school, and pre-school programs. “Our green school program has been running for about 25 years,” said City of Ventura Environmental Specialist Brandon Kaysen. “It used to be a voluntary program, and in 2010, the Ventura Unified School District (VUSD), adopted it into the school curriculum.” Environmental Programs K – 5th Grade For students in kindergarten through 5th grade, the City provides programs incorporating activities and lesson plans specifically designed to get students engaged in recycling, the care of natural spaces, wastewater and pollution prevention. There are also lesson plans that focus on endangered species and climate science. Environmental Programs 6th – 12th Grade For students grade 6th through 12th, the City offers career talks, project support, internships, technical audits (where students monitor school energy, water and waste practices), and community service hours. “The City also has a Food Waste Diversion program, which helps keep food waste out of the landfill,” said Kaysen. “We guide students on how to dispose of and recycle various waste from their lunch (i.e. cartons, uneaten food, etc.), and we also supply school custodial staff with recycling bins, trash cans, and sustainable practice signage.” Ventura Water’s Programs = Water Environmental Education “Ventura Water offers programs that are specific to water such as water conservation and quality, our watershed and the water cycle, water recycling, and water technologies,” continued Kaysen. To get students out of the classroom, field trips are offered to the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility where students learn about bird identification, water quality testing, and water infrastructure. “We’re very excited to be working with the school district to develop lesson plans to meet new science standards,” said Kaysen. “What’s great about this program is that it’s all-inclusive; meaning once the school contacts either myself or Haili Matsukawa with Ventura Water, we bring all the materials to provide students with an exciting experience.” *** To find out more about the Environmental Programs offered by the City and to schedule a program in your school, contact: City of Ventura Environmental Specialist Brandon Kaysen Environmental Specialist Environmental Sustainability bkaysen@cityofvetura.net (805) 652-4593 Haili Matsukawa Environmental Specialist Ventura Water hmatsukawa@venturawater.net (805) 652-4501 For more information on Green School Programs and the annual Green School and Watershed Hero Awards, Visit: Cityofventura.net/greenschool *** Watch Sustainable Ventura News at Ventura County Star online on the NEWS & LIFESTYLE pages (and also SEARCH "Sustainable Ventura" or "Maryann Ridini Spencer" at http://vcstar.com) Sustainable Ventura TV News is reported by Maryann Ridini Spencer and airs on Caps-TV VTV's Channel 15, Thursdays at 8:30pm.

Urbanization and the future of cities - Vance Kite
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/urbanization-and-the-future-of-cities-vance-kite About 10,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers, aided by rudimentary agriculture, moved to semi-permanent villages and never looked back. With further developments came food surpluses, leading to commerce, specialization and, many years later with the Industrial Revolution, the modern city. Vance Kite plots our urban past and how we can expect future cities to adapt to our growing populations. Lesson by Vance Kite, animation by ATMG Studio.

Water Pollution for Kids | It's AumSum Time
Our topic for today is Water Pollution. Contamination of water by harmful substances, which affects life on earth, is termed as water pollution. Due to human activities, our water is getting more and more polluted day by day. Household garbage is disposed into various sources of water. Many people perform their domestic activities like bathing, washing clothes and utensils, etc. in these sources of water. Also, industrial wastes are discharged into the water, leading to water pollution. Consumption of this polluted water leads to diseases like cholera, typhoid, diarrhoea, etc. in human beings. Polluted water also adversely affects the aquatic life. Thus, we need to make sure that we do not pollute water. Domestic activities such as bathing, washing clothes and utensils should not be done in rivers, lakes, ponds, etc. Household garbage should not be disposed in the various sources of water. Also, sewage and industrial waste water should be treated before discharging into the water.

Air Quality And Your Health
Gena has asthma, and when air quality is poor, it's difficult for her to breathe. She has a little girl and is concerned about her health too because children are more susceptible to air pollution. To protect them both, she uses the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) to plan ahead. It tells her the best time of day to be outside and when to reduce outdoor activities. It's also a reminder of our need to protect the environment. Cars are a major source of air pollution and if we reduce driving, we can reduce the number of bad air days. Gena, for one, doesn't own a car." Studies have shown that even small rises in air pollution can increase emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths. It's important for people with breathing issues to monitor the Air Quality Health Index. This national tool reports air quality in relation to health on a scale of 1 to 10. The higher the reading, the greater the health risk and need to take precautions. Gena plans ahead with the AQHI. So can you! Check out Gena's story at www.halton.ca/aqhi and download the AQHI Toolkit.

Detailing Air Pollution in Colorado - Front Range Air Pollution & Photochemistry Experiment
Scientists tracked air pollution from both human-related activities and natural sources during the Front Range Air Pollution and Photochemistry Experiment (FRAPPÉ) in summer 2014. Led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the ongoing project focuses on the urban corridor from south of Denver, north to Fort Collins, as well as the adjacent plains and mountains. The scientists plan to "fingerprint" how much pollution comes from local and upwind areas, including other states and countries. Their work will help health officials respond to air quality challenges on Colorado's Front Range and in other metropolitan areas with similar conditions Funded through a federal-state partnership, FRAPPÉ is supported by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and by the National Science Foundation, which is NCAR’s sponsor. FRAPPÉ observations were coordinated with a second air quality mission that took place on the Front Range at the same time. DISCOVER-AQ (Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality) is a major study led by NASA that seeks to improve the ability of satellites to usefully assess our air quality.

Delhi is winning its fight against pollution
Please watch: "Disney's Drone Technology | Episode 1 | PatentYogi Research" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm06Vc43yGE -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- In May 2014, the World Health Organisation declared New Delhi as the most polluted city in the world. Delhi air had PM2.5 concentrations of 153 micrograms and PM10 concentrations of 286 micrograms–much more than the permissible limits In comparison, Beijing, which was once considered one of the most polluted cities, has PM2.5 concentration of 56 micrograms and PM10 concentration of 121 micro grammes. Under huge public pressure, public institutions started taking baby steps to fight pollution. First, courts banned all diesel vehicles older than 15 years old. Burning plastic or any other material including tree leaves in the open was also banned. This was rampant before the ban. These measures were too late or too small to bring in any significant change. In February 2015, Delhi elected a progressive party "AAP". Founded by anti-corruption crusaders, AAP was led by an engineer from IIT, which are one of best engineering colleges in the world. In consultation with the public, the new government started working on a plan to fight pollution head-on. In Janurary 2016, they rolled out odd-even vehicle rationing scheme for 15 days, to control vehicular pollution. Using innovative public information campaigns, they convinced public that this is a necessary measure. The odd-even scheme was highly debated on Indian Television. But public supported it and it was a huge hit Gandhian method was used to convince offenders to follow policy. School children gave flowers to offenders and requested them to go back home. During odd-even scheme, demand for cabs increased. Services like UBER, Ola cabs saw huge demand. Uber "Surge pricing" was seen in action. Delhi govt gave a stern warning to Uber, which rolled back its surge pricing. Odd-even scheme immediately led to some reduction in pollution. Government closed two thermal power plants operating within Delhi. Delhi govt chalked out plan to buy electric buses to counter pollution. In a bid to reduce pollution, Delhi government gave go-ahead to app-based shuttle bus operators. Heavy fines were placed against consturction sites to serve as deterrant. Rs. 1 crore in dust pollution fines. Delhi started vacuum cleaning major roads, to restrict dust on road to re-enter atmosphere. Government started a huge exercise in planting trees. Some citizen organizations started a Plant ambulance to save injured plants Green tax: 20% dip in trucks entering Delhi. WHO clears air: Delhi no longer most polluted. Delhi is now the 11th most polluted city in the world, based on average annual PM 2.5 readings of 3,000 cities in 100 countries, according to the WHO’s latest urban air quality database for 2016.

Smog alert issued in 61 Chinese cities
중국 새해연휴 1억2천만명 대이동••• '스모그 난민' 도시 탈출 Chinese people are starting the new year chocking on smog. Despite Beijing's claims of making efforts to reduce air pollution, heavy smog alerts have been issued for the northern parts of the country.. The air was so toxic in some areas that it even residents took off to spend their New Year's elsewhere far from home. Lee Ji-won has the full story. With the smog in the northern parts of China getting worse by the day,... a smog alert has been issued in over 60 cities... and a huge number of residents spent their New Year's away from the area. According to China's environmental protection ministry, red alerts have been issued for 24 cities. That's the highest level in China's four-tier pollution warning system and at that level, factories, schools and construction sites are closed. On top of that, the next alert levels of orange and yellow have been issued for 37 cities,... including the capital of Beijing. "Nobody likes smog. Smog has negative effects on people's emotions and we're all feeling very bad about this." "I feel so depressed. I have a child, but I can only keep him at home and he can't even go out to get any sunshine. This really worries me." Reports say the bad smog can be attributed to an increase in violators of a five-year plan aimed at reducing air pollution. The ministry said the cold weather was also a factor, as more coal is burned for heating, in addition to the already poor atmospheric circulation in the winter. As a result,... some 120-million residents of places in northern China spent their three-day New Year's holiday in the southern parts of the country, including Sanya, which saw a 7-point-7 percent increase in tourists on the first day of the new year,... compared to same time last year. The Chinese government is currently working to alleviate the pollution by dispatching inspection teams to factories, but the ministry says current air pollution levels are expected to last until Thursday.

India to follow the Californian model to combat air pollution
Rising air pollution in India is a growing concern. In many ways India is going through what California did 40 years ago. The region had several episodes of severe air pollution during 1940-1970, but today it has been able to reduce black carbon emissions by 90% while its population has increased by 100%.

Delhi Still World's Most Polluted City
Every winter, a thick cover of smog covers Delhi. This time the cloud has come back, much sooner. The Indian capital has been ranked by the World Health Organization as 2014's most polluted city in the world. Over the last few days the air quality has seen a sharp decline. Last year’s WHO survey revealed that Delhi had the most unhealthy air in the world, because of a high concentration of PM 2.5 and PM 10, tiny particulate matter with a diameter of less than 2.5 microns and 10 microns respectively. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/eis7wEPcrqA/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Chinas Pollution Problem - Special English Economics Report
Air Pollution In China: http://www.controllingpollution.com/air-pollution-in-china/ From VOA Learning English, welcome to the Economics Report in Special English. China has been struggling to deal with record levels of smog over Beijing. Recently, officials in several Chinese cities announced plans to trade carbon credits as a way to reduce air pollution. For many years, China considered economic growth more important than the environment. The nation remains hungry for energy. But it has also become the world's biggest producer of carbon gases. Beijings smoggy days have made international news. Small particles in the air reduce visibility and threaten public health. Smog has been a concern in the city for years. But a sharp rise in pollution levels in January led to sharp criticism from many Chinese. Pollution from coal-burning power centers and factories is a big part of the problem. Now, officials hope to control industrial air pollution by creating systems to trade carbon credits. The trading systems, or platforms, would enable companies to receive credits for lowering greenhouse gas emissions. The credits can then be traded. The goal of these market-based platforms is to get businesses to invest in clean technology. Markets for carbon credits are expected to open this year in seven cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. Officials say the government has decided to start with pilot programs because carbon trading is something new. China wants to launch a national carbon trading program by 2016. Still, public pressure continues building on the government to find an answer to thick air pollution. Wu Changhua is with The Climate Group. She says the Chinese people are looking at more than jobs. They want a better environment too. For VOA Learning English, I'm Alex Villarreal. (Adapted from a radio program originally broadcast 8Feb2013)

India's Highway Super-System: Future MEGAPROJECTS
India's $90 billion Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor is one of the most ambitious, expensive endeavors in human history. But the project that will change the lives of the most people is the construction of hundreds of thousands of kilometers of paved roads.

The country’s $90 billion Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor is one of the most ambitious, expensive endeavors in human history. Completing 1,500 kilometers of new railway and more than 20 brand new cities will set the stage for India to become a manufacturing superpower in the next two decades. It’s so important I made a video all about it a couple years ago, it’s linked below. Now, the corridor may be vital to India’s future economy, but it’s not the project that will deliver the largest day-to-day improvement in quality of life. Neither will a new mega-airport under construction in Mumbai, or World One—the largest residential tower in the world, or even a 500 km high speed rail line planned for India’s west coast. No, the project Indians need most is more basic than all that: it’s hundreds of thousands of kilometers of paved roads. Like the rest of the world, the Indian people have fallen in love with driving. But there currently aren’t enough reliable highways to hold all the cars in a country of 1.3 billion people and growing. The good news is that the Indian government has learned one of the key economic lessons of modern history: that the not-so-secret ingredient of America’s dominance over the last half century is our vast network of well-maintained streets and highways. Roads allow us to move ourselves — and all of our goods — fluidly from city to city, from fields to towns to air and sea ports, and beyond. China learned this lesson a while ago. They’ve spent tens of billions of dollars on roadways over the past two decades as their economy boomed. Now that its transportation infrastructure is maturing, the Chinese are positioned for rapid development. India wants to follow the same blueprint and is in the midst of a sustained, years-long, multi-tens of billions of dollars megaproject to do just that. India has about the same population as China, but double the density. Get this, of the five most-densely populated cities in the world with more than four million residents, four of them are in India, including the planet’s most crowded megacity, Mumbai. So with much less land to work with, India’s challenge will be expanding, modernizing, and widening its existing network of roads, which, on the plus side, is already quite extensive. On the downside, 40% of it is dirt. Without good roads, the country is less unified because its people and goods can’t move around freely enough, especially to and from rural areas. One of the new roads in the megaproject that’s already completed is a $2B expressway that slashed the travel time between Delhi to Agra by up to four hours. But barbed wire fencing all along the route keeps it clear of the people and slow-moving vehicles that crowd the rest of India’s roads, and high tolls mean it's used only for the rich. Challenges like this will need to be addressed and overcome by the government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who’s a big fan of megaprojects, and has maintained his commitment to the ambitious goal of completing 18,500 kilometers of controlled-access highway. One of the main obstacles to achieving this vision is that the megaproject suffers from chronic underfunding and the disappointment of only reaching about half its construction goals, year-after-year. Compare this to the way the Chinese operate. As an authoritarian country, a single political party controls the entire government, allowing it to push projects through and spend money as it pleases, sometimes in a brutally efficient way. But while China, India’s continental rival, may have leapt ahead in its rate of completion of a mega-network of highways, it has yet to face the inevitable reckoning of a messy transition to democracy. With a people who are much freer, on this front, the Indians are miles ahead of the Chinese. Now, they just need to build themselves enough open road so their economy can hit top speed.

Southern Iceland Cottage - http://bit.ly/South-Iceland-Cottage 5. Reykjavik Bachelor Pad - http://bit.ly/Reykjavik-Apartment ------ My favorite THINGS TO DO in Iceland:: ► Reykjavik & Golden Circle Iceland's capital city and home to 122,000 people. Reykjavik is the largest city in Iceland and most traveler's jumping off point for the Ring Road and Golden Circle. The Golden Circle is a popular tourist driving route in southern Iceland, which covers about 300 kilometers looping from Reykjavík into the southern uplands of Iceland and back. There are many Golden Circle tours, but I would recommend doing this with a rental car. Featured attractions include Geysir, Blue Lagoon and Gullfoss waterfall. One of my favorite things to do in Iceland in this region is the Reykjadalur Hot Springs - A beautiful and unique geothermal river near the town of Hveragerði. It takes about one hour to hike up to the hot springs, so be prepared. ► Central Highlands ► Northern Iceland Eyjafjörður Fjord - One of the best places in Iceland to see the Northern Lights. Northern Iceland has very little light pollution, so tracking the Northern Lights over the Fjords is a great idea. Ásbyrgi Canyon - This massive canyon was formed way back after the ice age as melting glacier floods ripped giant divots into the earth and left this beautiful valley and rock walls in its path. Northern Lights - In order to have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland, check out this website we used to track the cloud coverage and aurora activity. http://en.vedur.is/weather/forecasts/aurora/ Dettifoss Waterfall - Said to be Europe’s most powerful waterfall, and we’re getting a unique perspective - by moonlight. ► Western Iceland & Snæfellsnes Peninsula Godafoss Waterfall - An expansive horseshoe-shaped cascade that’s probably my favorite waterfall of the entire trip. ► Eastern Iceland Hverir or Namafjall geothermal field - Located in northeastern Iceland around the geothermal region of Lake Mývatn - a vast area of hot springs, sulfur crystals, and boiling mud pots. ► Southern Iceland Seljalandsfoss - A popular waterfall in South Iceland, and the only waterfall (that I know of) in Iceland that you can walk behind. Skogafoss - Massive curtain waterfall with a drop of 60 meters and a width of 25 meters, also in Southern Iceland. Reynisfjara - Incredible black sand beach near Vik with basalt sea stacks to one side and rock formations jetting out of the ocean.
