What is consumption

What is consumption?

  • Consumption describes certain behaviours by individuals, companies or states with the intention of satisfying their desires.

  • Consumption is the use of goods and resources which can only be used by destroying them or transforming them.

Water consumption

Water consumption

  • The world population consumes 2 200 000 m3 of water per year

  • The mostsignificant use of water takes place in 5 countries which use 60% of the world’s water supply. These countries are India, China, the United States, Pakistan and Russia. An individual has an average water need of 20 to 50 litres of water per day (for food, hygiene, etc…). A child in a developped country consumes 30 to 50 times more water than a child in a developing country.

Oil who is worried about it

  • Petrol is used in all energyfields, but it is for transportation thatit is mostlyused.

What is pollution

What is pollution?

The different types of pollution in guadeloupe

The different types of pollution in Guadeloupe

  • Soil pollution

  • Chlordeconeis a chemical molecule used against pests in the banana plantations.

  • In Guadeloupe, chlordecone pollution is mainly found in the south of Basse-Terre in banana plantations.

  • Pesticides used in agriculture cause soil pollution.

  • Water pollution

  • In Guadeloupe, abnormal concentration of heavymetals are found in the water (e.griver and sea), mostly lead from industrialwaste, copper, zinc from the Anti-Foulingcoatingused on boat hulls.

Coral bleaching

  • Guadeloupe is surrounded by coral reefs. The greatest coral barrier is found in the Cul de Sac Marin. But these corals are in danger and have begun to disappear in several places, thus unbalancing the entire eco-system.

  • Coral bleaching is caused when algae and polypes are expulsed. The bleached corals could die due to the pollution of the seas and the oceans which exceed averages. This modifies the eco-system of the reefs and affects fishing, regional tourism and coastal protection.
