RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN New information from the World Health Organization says that 7 million people die annually from exposure to polluted air. The organization says nine out of 10 people everywhere are exposed to dangerous pollutants. According to the WHO, 34% of all pollution-related deaths are due to heart disease and 20% are from stroke. The rest consist of various lung-related conditions including pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer. Around 3.6 million deaths were connected to exposure from indoor air pollutants such as fumes from cooking fires and stoves. The most vulnerable are children under 5 where pneumonia is the biggest risk to life, women working in smoky kitchens and people who work outside. According to the WHO, outdoor air pollution in cities and rural settings is caused by industry and energy supply, transportation, waste management, dust, farming practices, and household energy.

Scientists Have Found Plastic-Eating Bacteria
How to solve the plastic pollution problem? Bacteria that munch on plastic: could this be the answer to the humanity’s environmental crisis? After all, we’re drowning in tons of plastic, and it’s hurting our oceans, the creatures in them, and even our own health! This microscopic plastic-eater isn’t your average bacteria. Scientists actually found a way to mutate this microorganism and boost its planet-saving superpower. It can make the world a better place by eating away all the plastic waste. And with about 20,000 water bottles being bought every second around the world, it’s got a big job to do. TIMESTAMPS: What plastic-eater is 0:52 How much plastic end up in our oceans every year 1:41 How long it takes for plastics to biodegrade 4:03 What it all started with 4:37 Enzyme technology 6:55 How you can reduce your use of plastic 7:14 #plasticeatingbacteria #pollution #savetheplanet Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - A staggering 19 billion pounds of plastic end up in our oceans every year. Once it’s there, it gets ingested by the animals that humans eat, which means our health gets affected too. - Plastic can disrupt ecosystems and create more and more areas where nothing can survive. - Plastic is all around us, and (get this) it’s even inside of us! Plastic is used so extensively that it’s been found in human stool! - It takes around 400 years for some types of plastic to fully biodegrade, like the ones used in water and soda bottles. - Japanese researchers discovered a strand of bacteria that’s evolved to eat a particular type of plastic called polyethylene terephthalate, commonly known as PET or PETE. - According to them, the bacteria could break the plastic down into smaller pieces but not fully eat it away. It took about 6 weeks for the bacteria to eat through a thin layer of plastic. - Enzyme technology could be used to help humanity’s trash problem, but it’s still in its early stages. The researchers are continuing to tweak the enzyme in hopes that they can improve upon it even further and use it on a larger scale. - The creation of this super enzyme is a great way to kick off a solution to plastic pollution. But this enzyme, despite its mutant nature, can’t undo all the pollution that’s currently in the world. - As long as people keep buying and using it, companies will continue to manufacture plastic. The cycle will keep on going until the consumer is willing to break it. - Don’t give into the lazy convenience of plastic plates and utensils. Use porcelain dinnerware, and just do the dishes afterwards. Just make it fun and turn on some music or your favorite show!

A New Continent Is Discovered on Earth In the Pacific Ocean
How to Stop Water Polution. In case you're wondering what water polution has to do with a new continent discoevered in the Pacific Ocean, here's the answer to this mystery. This new continent is an island that consists solely of garbage and plastic waste. Some countries are ready to announce an ecological disaster. Let’s see if there’s something we can all do to save the planet. TIMESTAMPS The popularity of plastic 0:26 Garbage islands 1:47 The Great Pacific Garbage Patch 2:30 Problems connected with the plastic pollution of the ocean 4:39 Bali ecological disaster 7:31 Several ways to solve problem 8:26 #newcontinent #garbageisland #ecologicalproblem Music: Butchers - Silent Partner https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -2 million plastic bags a minute are thrown away. As for bubble wrap, the amount produced in just one year would be enough to cover our planet around the equator. 500 billion plastic cups are used and disposed of annually. -There are 3 huge garbage islands in the world: in the central North Pacific Ocean, in the Indian Ocean, and in the Atlantic Ocean. -The size of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is currently more than 600,000 square miles. According to the journal Scientific Reports, there are more than 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic that have accumulated in this area. -Plastic objects in the ocean kill animals or get stuck in their bodies. Some types of plastic are toxic. In addition, plastic has the ability to absorb such poisonous substances as mercury. Birds often choke to death after trying to swallow a bright object that has caught their eye. -Indonesian authorities have recently declared a “garbage emergency.” More than 100 tons of waste brought ashore every day to beaches from Seminyak and Jimbaran to Kuta. -To solve the problem, people can find a way to remove the garbage that is already in the ocean. Another way out is to decrease pollution or stop it completely.

A 70-Year-Old Grandma Cleaned 52 Beaches in a Year, See How She Did It
Spring is here, and it’s a time for spring cleaning! But while you might be deciding what room to tackle first in your house, there’s one elderly lady who has decided to deep-clean this planet -- one beach at a time! And that lovely lady is Pat Smith. She was inspired by a documentary about the negative effects of plastic pollution on the planet. What she saw in the film kept her up at night worrying about the problem. When she got up in the morning, she decided to do something about it. Pat Smith is from Cornwall, which is the most southwestern county in the UK. With the Celtic Sea on one side and the English Channel on the other, Cornwall is a place with a LOT of beaches. And this 70-year-old grandmother has already cleaned 52 of them within a single year!

Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Pat Smith set herself the challenge of cleaning one beach every week for the year of 2018. With the support of the Cornwall community and the help of some volunteers, she actually completed that goal! - After her year of grueling hard work, she started a campaign called The Final Straw. Her mission is to raise as much awareness as possible about not only the uselessness of plastic straws but also the harm they can bring to the environment and its wildlife. - One of the biggest culprits of this pollution problem is single-use plastic. n fact, every flimsy little plastic straw will outlive every person living on the planet right now! - Scientists can’t really measure the exact amount of plastic in the ocean, but an engineering professor from the University of Georgia estimated that it’s between 5 and 14 million tons. - Large bodies of water become filled with microplastic that could end up in our tap water or in the drinking water of animals that we use for meat. The food that both animals and humans eat could be grown in toxic soil. - Smith has already convinced local businesses like cafes and restaurants to ditch the use of plastic straws. - It'll take hundreds of years to rid the world of the estimated 9.2 billion tons of plastic (only around 7% of which ever make it to recycling). Smith’s efforts are only the tip of a really big mountain of garbage, and it’s gonna take a lot more people like her to undo the damage.

How noise pollution is ruining your hearing
Our ears are exposed to dangerous levels of noise every single day. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Health organizations warn that continual exposure to noise levels above 70 decibels can potentially damage your ears. And yet we are routinely exposed to noise much louder than that in everyday situations. Our world is increasingly noisy and our bars, restaurants, gyms, and streets all produce decibel levels that can cause harm to our hearing in mere minutes. Hearing loss is incredibly common and is the fourth highest disability worldwide. One in four American adults shows signs of noise-induced hearing loss, and the problem is only going to get worse. While hearing damage is irreversible, it's also completely preventable. Watch for tips on how to protect your ears even in incredibly loud environments.

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.

Water Pollution for Kids | #aumsum
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.

In the past, those powerful images have generated interest and resources for fighting marine pollution, but now a new, much tinier threat is emerging. Microplastics — meaning any plastic object smaller than five millimeters — constitute the vast majority of plastic particles polluting marine habitats. Of those microplastics, a large share are microfibers: tiny strands of plastic that are woven into fabric used to make clothing. These fabrics, known by names like polyester and nylon, are cheap to produce, comfortable to wear, and since arriving on the market in the late 1940s, companies have been using more and more of them. Every time we do laundry, a small amount of microfibers are separated from clothes made from these materials. Since those pieces of plastic are extremely small, they're able to make their way through water treatment centers and into marine resources. Once they reach marine habitats, the ocean’s tiniest creatures consume them, and microfibers work their way up the food chain. Eventually, they reach us.

Is Your Fleece Jacket Polluting The Oceans?
New research shines the spotlight on a new plastic pollution menace -- microfibers. TEACHERS: Get your students in the discussion on KQED Learn, a safe place for middle and high school students to investigate controversial topics and share their voices. https://learn.kqed.org/topics/ By 2050, the World Economic Forum predicts that the amount of plastic in the oceans will outweigh ALL the fish. When you hear “plastic” pollution, you might picture six-pack rings wrapped around seagulls or beaches littered with plastic bottles. But now, researchers are discovering a new menace -- microfibers. They’re tiny strands of synthetic fibers. ABOVE THE NOISE is a show that cuts through the hype and investigates the research behind controversial and trending topics in the news. Hosted by Myles Bess. *NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER WEDNESDAY* SUBSCRIBE by clicking the RED BUTTON above. Follow us on Instagram @kqedabovethenoise Microfibers are a type of plastic pollution known as microplastics. Microplastics are teeny tiny bits of plastic that are smaller than 5 mm -- which is about the size of a grain of rice. They typically come from larger pieces of plastic that have been broken down over time, or from plastic microbeads found in exfoliating face washes. Most microfiber pollution comes from the synthetic clothing that many of us LOVE to wear -- think fleece jackets and yoga pants. But this comfort and fashion has a cost. Each time synthetic fabrics are washed, those tiny microfibers shed. Washing a typical polyester fleece can release thousands of microfibers that can travel from the washing machine to the local water treatment plant, where they can slip by filters and enter rivers, lakes, and oceans. And from there, fish and other marine life are eating the microfibers, which may leach harmful toxins. Microfiber research is pretty new. It didn’t really start until 2011. But since then, researchers have been finding microfibers EVERYWHERE. They’ve been found in tap water in dozens of countries, including the U.S. A German study found microfibers in all 24 beer brands they tested. Researchers in Paris even discovered microfibers falling from the air, meaning we could be BREATHING them in on a daily basis. What are microplastics? Small plastic pieces less than five millimeters long which can be harmful to our ocean and aquatic life. What is plastic made of? Plastics are made from oil. Oil is a carbon-rich raw material, and plastics are large carbon-containing compounds. They're large molecules called polymers, which are composed of repeating units of shorter carbon-containing compounds called monomers.

Evil Youth Climate Strike - Global Warming Truth
This was recorded at the Youth Climate Strike in Vancouver, Canada on May 3, 2019. Peter talks with Brian Ruhe about how to cheaply reduce CO2 in ways that are being suppressed by people who want to use the global warming scare for global control. See David Icke's video GLOBAL WARMING IS A SCAM - David Icke | London Real at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSkNIpNWX0k Peter's climate plan is below. 1. Ocean iron fertilization feeds wild fish and sequesters carbon dioxide. In 2012, the Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation (HSRC) fertilized an eddy 200 nautical miles west of the islands of Haida Gwaii with 100 tonnes of iron sulphate. In the following year the salmon catch in the northeast Pacific more than quadrupled, going from 50 million to 226 million. The average commercial salmon is 9 kg, so the salmon catch went from 450,000 tons to 2,000,000 tons, an increase of about 1,500,000 tons, more than 15,000 times the weight of iron: https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2018/01/iron-fertilization-of-the-ocean-is-as-natural-as-whale-poop-and-it-can-save-the-planet.html https://planetsave.com/2014/07/02/ocean-fertilization-dangerous-experiment-gone-right/ Iron fertilization can be done affordably right now, and grow an enormous amount of wild fish, but is limited and can only absorb about half a gigaton of carbon (about two gigaton of carbon dioxide) per year, five percent of the roughly forty gigatons of carbon dioxide emitted each year. http://regardssurlaterre.com/en/ocean-iron-fertilization To get rid of more carbon, cobalt can also be added, but even cobalt fertilization is limited. Kelp farms cost more than iron and cobalt fertilization, but can grow more fish and sequester more carbon dioxide. If 9% of the ocean were to be covered with kelp farms, everyone in the world could get an extra 200 kilograms of fish per year, and 50 gigatons of carbon dioxide could be sequestered, more than the 36 gigatons now going into the atmosphere from human sources: https://theconversation.com/how-farming-giant-seaweed-can-feed-fish-and-fix-the-climate-81761 https://envirobites.org/2018/02/22/can-seaweed-farming-help-fight-climate-change/ Iron fertilization is not being done because environmental organizations and government made it illegal. Greenpeace actually blockaded an ocean fertilization experiment off the coast of Ecuador: https://www.newsecuritybeat.org/2017/05/consensus-certainty-catastrophe-ocean-iron-fertilization-debate/ 2. To reduce transportation energy use, switching over from cars, with an energy use of 2,300 J/m to bus and rail, with an energy use of around 2,250 J/m, has a tiny net benefit. To really reduce energy consumption, switching over to personal rapid transit with an energy is the way to go. Besides using less energy, personal rapid transit is faster and trains it doesn't spread contagious diseases. What works even better, for short trips, is to make covered bicycle and walking paths, to encourage cycling and walking even in the rain. Bicycles use 110 J/m, and walking uses 220 J/m, so both of these methods use less energy than even the best powered transportation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_rapid_transit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_efficiency_in_transport Bus and commuter rail simple average = (2,800 + 1,700) J/m / 2 = 2,250 J/m. 3. The Green New Deal would require many new power lines: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/policy/energy/big-problem-facing-the-green-new-deal-a-lack-of-power-lines-to-deliver-wind-and-solar It is better to produce on peak electricity locally with cogeneration from heat storage or biomass or biogas. Landfill gas and gas from plasma arc recyclers can be stored in existing facilities. 4. To reduce air pollution, it is cheaper to have a tax on pollutants like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides and particulates, than a carbon tax. This would encourage car drivers to use hybrid cars, which emit 90% less pollution than conventional engines. It would encourage truckers to use hydrogen fuel enhancement, which reduces pollution by 80%. This would save about 85,000 of the 100,000 people who die from air pollution each year in the United States: https://www.usnews.com/news/national-news/articles/2019-04-08/100-000-americans-die-from-air-pollution-study-finds 5. Soil can capture an enormous amount of carbon with Biologically Enhanced Agricultural Management (BEAM), a crumbly solid with a high ratio of fungi to bacteria. Otherwise Gabe Brown's grazing and cropping program can be used. Applied to all soils, it would enable the sequestration of 180 GT/year of carbon dioxide. https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2019/05/regenerative-farming-for-better-farms-and-better-soil.html http://www.anchorageromneys.com/2019/03/biologically-enhanced-agricultural-management/ https://www.agriculture.com/crops/cover-crops/harvest-carbon-from-the-air https://grassfedexchange.com/videos/gfe-2016-gabe-brown-cover-crops-for-grazing

Premature Births Linked To Air Pollution Cost The US $4.3B A Year - Newsy
Transcript: Premature births linked to air pollution cost the U.S. more than $4 billion in 2010, according to a new study. Nearly 16,000 premature births — a little more than 3 percent of all premature births in the U.S. — are linked to harmful particulates in the air. Urban areas saw the highest impacts. New analysis published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives tallied the yearly costs: $760 million for extended hospital stays and medication, and $3.57 billion of economic output lost because of disabilities linked to premature births. Environmental toxins — and especially air pollution — lead to more toxic chemicals in the mother's bloodstream and weaken her immune system. Premature infants can have neurological and respiratory problems. Researchers say reducing preterm births — and their associated health care and economic costs — means limiting harmful emissions. "For policymakers, decisions about regulating air pollution come down to a trade-off between the cost of preventing air pollution and the health and economic benefits of limiting air pollution sources," an author of the study told CBS News. The team intends to eventually expand its analysis to a global scale in hopes of inspiring future policy changes.
