toxic air and polluted waters have taken a turn for the worst also, causing fear-inspiring.
problems all over the world. Gregg Easterbrook and Bill Mckibben both point out.
extremely important points, but Gregg Easterbrooks argument seems to have stronger and.
more urgent problems needing to be addressed like air and water pollution.
Lets take a closer look into the environmental dangers that are occurring in this.
present day. According to one researcher, "Throughout the world, many more people die.
each year from filthy air and dirty water than from, dioxin, electromagnetic radiation,.
nuclear wastes, PCBs, pesticide residues, and ultraviolet rays" (Easterbrook 636).
It is time that we approach these disturbing truths before it is to late. What can we do to.

about what pollution is and how it is caused. Gurinder Shahi, of the U.N. Development.
