The Cost Of Environmental Neglect

"Creation Care" isn't limited only to our environment. The effects of environmental damage are vast and far-reaching, touching everything from disaster recover to under-5 deaths.

  1. UNDER-5 DEATHS:

    Deforestation and poor water management are said to contribute to the spread of malaria, a disease that kills 2,000 children every night.

  2. VIOLENCE:

    The war between north and south Sudan began over opposing politics but has evolved into a battle over diminishing resources. Flooding and deforestation have led to mass displacement and heightened civil conflict.

  3. NATURAL DISASTER

    Impoverished communities that are uneducated on the proper usage of energy and resources limit their potential to rise up out of poverty, and often have greater difficulty recovering from the environmental risks of natural disaster.

  4. EDUCATION

    Environmental decline in impoverished regions increases the time women and young girls spend collecting water, fuel and other resources, mean- ing females have less time to spend pursuing an education or generating an income.

  5. POVERTY

    Poorer nations such as Haiti often misuse resources to survive, relying heavily on their for- ests and charcoal, a method often left unregu- lated by the government.

  6. PREVENTABLE DISEASE

    Environmental factors such as air and water pollution, lack of sanitation and vector-borne illness are responsible for up to 25 percent of the world’s diseases.

Consuming water amazing happens when harmful toxins are launched directly or in a indirect way into water methods without sufficient treatment to eliminate harmful substances.

The movement of the plume, called a plume front, may be analyzed through a hydrological transport model or groundwater model. Analysis of groundwater contamination may focus on the soil characteristics and site geology, hydrogeology, hydrology, and the nature of the contaminants.
