ENVIRONMENTALPROBLEMS

They were all suggested by the students in a brainstorming session. Some of them are similar to those an ecologist dealt with in a previous lecture he gave us. The topics in blue are the ones which were specifically chosen by the pupils to work on.

ROADS

There are too many.

Too many roads: new roads are built instead of rebuilding the old ones

Too expensive

Too many cars: pollution and noise increase

SOLUTIONS: extend the network of public means of transport

Noise

Earth resources are close to disappearance

Natural resources are limited and we are using them up so fast that they will soon run out.

Polluted air

CO2

Problems. Solutions. Concept map. Rising temperature. Pole layers and snow on mountains are melting. Rising sea level. More natural disasters. Some plants and animals are dying out. Reduce the emission of CO2. Use of alternative sources of energy. Safe sources of energy. Comply with the Kyoto protocol conditions.

Different species are in danger of extinction
