1.1. Rain that is unusually acidic- elevated levels of hydrogen ions

1.1.1. Effects: harmful on plants, aquatic animals, infrastructure

1.1.2. Greater impact on lakes, streams,

2. Over population

2.1. exceeding the capacity of earth

3. Water Pollution

3.1. water pollution is caused by sewage and waste that is put in the water

3.1.1. Every year the world generates 400 billion tons of industrial waste

3.1.2. 40 percent of the worlds water is polluted

4. Global warming

5.1. Air pollution is caused by various gases and toxins released by industries and factories

5.1.1. affects our every day lives

5.1.2. many different forms of pollution; air, water,soil, radioactive, noise, heat/thermal and light

6. Waste Disposal

6.1. all the activities and actions required to manage waste from its inception to its final disposal

7. Ocean Acidification

7.1. When carbon dioxide (CO2) is absorbed by seawater, chemical reactions occur that reduce seawater pH, carbonate ion concentration, and saturation states of biologically important calcium carbonate minerals

8. Loss of Biodiversity

8.1. Loss of biodiversity or biodiversity loss is the extinction of species (human, plant or animal) worldwide, and also the local reduction or loss of species in a certain habitat.

9. Deforestation

10. Ozone Layer Depletion

10.1. Ozone Layer protects us from the harmful sun rays. Toxic gases like Chlorine

11. Genetic Engineering

11.1. Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification or genetic manipulation, is the direct manipulation of an organism's genes using biotechnology.

12. Urban Sprawl

12.1. Increased Air Pollution: More frequent use of automobiles can increase air pollution. Longer and more frequent commutes are a major concern associated with urban sprawl.

12.1.1. People living in suburban areas are more likely to be obese than people living in urban areas

13. Public Health Issues

13.1. Environmental problems has a big impact on humans and animals. Dirty water, toxins, carrying organisms in river, Dengue,etc.

14. Natural Resource Depletion

14.1. We're running out of water, oil and forests are being destroyed each year.
