Environmental Protection in Ukraine
We are living in a time of rapid scientific and technological progress, which is accompanied by an ever-increasing consumption of the world’s natural resources. Such vital sources of life as air, water, minerals as well as fauna and flora are being wasted and destroyed. The protection of nature has become one of actual problems of our country. More people in many countries are raising their voices in deference of Mother Nature. Our mass media write about water, air and land pollution. The pollution develops due to toxic wastes, produced by chemical plants, intensive agriculture. Air pollution is especially serve in many of the heavily industrialized cities and towns of southern Ukraine. Coal-using industries are major sources of high levels of many harmful substances. Over one third of the emissions into the atmosphere originate from automobile transport. Almost all surface waters of Ukraine belong to the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov basins. The high population density, heavy industrial development, the low freshwater endowment of those basins has given rise to chronic and serious levels of water pollution throughout Ukraine. The Sea of Azov has experienced serious problems of industrial and municipal wastewater contamination and increased levels of salinity since the early 1970s. Despite repeated warnings and special government anti pollution resolutions, the conditions in this sea continue the deteriorate.
Nowadays we use E-numbers in our food. They may be dangerous for our health if there is a certain quantity of E-numbers in our body. Another cause is a radioactive contamination of a vast area in 1986 when there was an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The trouble is that the accident caused the contamination not only to many parts of Ukraine but some other countries in Europe. Polluted air and acid rains kill millions of animals. Fogs of smoke and gas are emitted into the air. If the trees die, We’ll die, too, because they supply us with oxygen to breathe. Success in protection nature is possible only if all countries in the world join forces. We hope that we’ll preserve nature’s wealth and even adore to this wealth in the future.
