air pollution
Air Pollution

Air pollution is our common problem, so we can solve this problem working together.


Millions of cars, trucks, buses and airplanes pollute and spoil the air. Smoke and gases also come from plants and factories. They are the main polluters.

harmful effects of air pollution
Harmful effects of air pollution

The effects of air pollution are not good. Air pollution is harmful to many species. Air pollution can cause serious diseases. It causes a lot of illnesses: common cold, asthma, bronchitis, lung cancer, heart failure and so on.

water pollution
Water pollution

People dump industrial and nuclear waste into rivers, lakes, oceans.

If people drink such water, they can die too.

There are no oceans and seas, which are not used as a dump.

People shouldn’t use rivers and lakes as a dump.


The disaster of the Gulf of Mexico happened last year. An explosion in the Gulf of Mexico led to the largest oil spill in history. The spill causedgreat damage to marine and wildlife habitats. As a result many fish and sea animals were poisoned and killed. The damage of the spill is still being removed.

the problem of deforestation
The Problem of Deforestation
  • There are 9 ml sq km on our planet. Nowadays forests are disappearing fast.
  • Why?
  • Some species – fish, birds and mammals – are becoming endangered.
  • Why?


Deforestation influences the water cycle. Deforestation badly influences the groundwater, preventing the soil from keeping rain water.

nuclear pollution
Nuclear Pollution

Nuclear power stations give us cheap electricity. But this way of getting energy is very dangerous.

Nuclear pollution can be caused by atomic explosions.


Shadow of a man sitting at the time of the explosion on the stairs in front of the bank, 250 meters from the epicenter

It was a ca lm and sunny Monday morning …

In the epicenter of the explosion all people died instantly, their bodies were turned into charcoal. Birds flying past were burnt in the air. Dry, flammable materials such as paper, burnt at a distance of 2 km from the epicenter. It was the only example  of the combat use of nuclear weapons in history.



Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine in 1986 was the world\'s worst nuclear power plant accident. Radiation was carried across Europe by clouds.


In March 2011 an earthquake and tsunami caused damage at the Fukushima at Nuclear Power Plant in Japan. The accident has surpassed the Three Mile Island accident, and is comparable to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.


Around 20 – 30 tons of high - level waste are produced per month per nuclear reactor. All the world\'s nuclear power stations create about 10,000 metric tons of nuclear waste each year.
