Some of the most pressing problems in human affairs—expanding populations, food scarcities, environmental pollution including global warming, extinctions of plant and animal species, and all the attendant.

These five megatrends present major global threats for planet Earth — problems that must be solved if the world is to remain a supportive habitat for humans and other species. DW looks at causes. The ivory gull Pagophila eburnea is a high‐Arctic species threatened by climate change and contaminants.

The objective of the present study was to assess spatial variation of contaminant levels (organochlorines [OCs], brominated flame retardants [BFRs], perfluorinated alkyl substances [PFASs], and mercury [Hg]) in ivory gulls breeding in different areas across the Arctic region as a baseline Cited by: the circumpolar world.

Accordingly, the Arctic is a natural area of focus for the two countries. Although the end of the Cold War seemed to portend a new era of deep cooperation between these two Arctic countries, lingering wariness about geopolitical motives and a mutual lack of knowledge about the other’s slice of the circumpolar world are.

Ecological concepts are general understandings (or facts) about ecosystems and ecosystem management. Ecological principles are basic assumptions (or beliefs) about ecosystems and how.

The circumpolar regions vary in biodiversity. From the temperate rainforest in southeastern Alaska, it decreases progressively northwards through the boreal forest (taiga) to the tundra.

This paper will discuss the problem of environmental pollution and waste management. Everything that surrounds us is directly or indirectly connected to the environment. The circumpolar environment itself is a hazardous work setting, with special risks posed by great distances, permafrost, cold waters, high wind speeds, ice, blizzards, and darkness.

The abovementioned features contribute to higher occupational risks of frostbite compared with other areas (24). Environmental pollution usually occurs as a result of energy conversions and the use of resources which leaves their by-products behind in water, soil or air.

Technology has begun to solve some pollution problems, and public awareness of the. "What we're playing for now is to see if we can limit climate change to the point where we don't wipe out civilizations," the environmental writer Bill.

Environment pollution is a wide-reaching problem and it is likely to influence the health of human populations is great.

The book was written as a basis for a forthcoming illustrated booklet, designed to provide the public with accurate scientific information on this important subject.• Nearly 50% said that travel inspired awareness of environmental diversity, promotes a culture that values the environment, and the importance of protecting endangered locations, species, cultures • Increased number of respondents who acted on their environmental concerns while they traveled (37%, up 5% from last survey).Interdisciplinary: Students explore the ecological, historical, social, political and economic contexts of environmental problems on a global scale.

Students receive lectures from faculty in multiple disciplines and hear from local innovators. Readings provide additional context to the issues they are exploring.
