China: The Electric Waste Basket
By Gage Klassen
Water For Life
Everybody and everything needs water. Lots of Earth of is covered in water, just not the water we need. Most of Earth is salt water, if ingested it can cause dehydration, and may lead to death. There is only about 2 percent of fresh water. Most of it is frozen in glaciers or in ice caps. Most of freshwater is used to grow food to feed the worlds population. Smaller amounts are for industrial purposes, and household needs. As Earth's population grows the demand for freshwater is increased as well. A large portion of the fresh water we use is being wasted by inefficient drainage systems. Our water sources are also being polluted from processing plants. Global Warming which is the reason of releasing harmful chemicals into the atmosphere is also diminishing freshwater sources. Climate change has changed extreme flood, droughts, and streams. In certain places global warming is causing bad droughts which is resulting in a large loss of animal and human lives. Because we are losing water very rapidly countries are going to war for the right of water usage. To conclude “The availability and control supplies are issues poised to define life in the twenty-first century”(Paragraph 12) Stuart .A. Kallen.
The Electric Waste Basket of the World
Cleaning up the Enviroment
This Chart/table shows the 2010 E-waste generation in China, India, and Kenya. China has the E-waste in the world.
These are the streets of China. People are working to tear apart the Electronics, and cut wires. Usually these people will then sell these things to Foxconn
