AIR POLLUTION


Air pollution is caused by industries, means of transportation and households. Generally, industries are responsible for the 50% of air pollution, means of transportation are responsible for the 35% and households are responsible for the 15%. As regarding air pollution results the carbon dioxide, global warming and ozone hole etc.

MARINE POLLUTION

To protect the marine environment there should be the prevention of appropriate legislative, administrative and organizational measures, surveillance of lakes, rivers and seas, such as information and public awareness, the imposition of sanctions on offenders and more.

RUBBISH POLLUTION


Rubbish pollution that comes from human intervention too and this is the main problem in Greece. People don’t realize that they have harmed in very high level the environment and the lives of the new generations will have to face this problem if we don’t do anything about it and don’t get imposed like a law in time.

To avoid environmental pollution that comes from garbage people should put their garbage in the right bins, signs must be tagged to show people the right thing to do, and surveillance has to be in the areas that most garbage is thrown, in remote areas too and more.

PRESENTATION















CLIMATE CHANGE
Climate change makes Europe's climate more hot and humid, which will bring
diseases that are caused by mosquitoes, other insects and rodents. The spread of diseases
such as dengue fever, encephalitis, malaria or yellow fever is therefore easier.
Additionally, global warming could cause the increase of germs and bacteria.

BIODIVERSITY
Biodiversity is all living beings, species

and ecosystems that constitute life on Earth, like animals
birds, fish and plants (flora and fauna). Many species are
expected to disappear from areas which influenced
directly from changes in climate all over the world.
Animals whose natural environment is living in
Earth's poles or generally in cold climates, for example

polar bears, seals and penguins will be affected -
by global warming and melting of the PA
angle. Also, birds are forced to imigrate to different
areas where they lived until today.The tropical
and other forests in the southern regions will lead to extinction and
a rate of 60% of species found in mountain
areas will disappear.

Biodiversity loss involves deterioration of services provided by

ecosystems (ecosystem services). The approach followed thus for
economic evaluation of the consequences of biodiversity loss is focused on
ecosystem services. The latest development in an effort to determine
economic value of services provided by ecosystems and development
economic tools that take this regard comes from the study entitled

Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (The Economics of Ecosystems and
Biodiversity - TEEB), held under the auspices of the European Commission.


Greece, shows great diversity of ecosystems and biodiversity landscapesmainly due to paleoclimatologist region , the small size of (132.000 km2). In long coastline (16.000 km) and strong territorial relief, invariety of geological formationsand rocks and largevariety of climate types, fromalmost Xeric (Crete) to wet and cold, continental (Rodopi), with intermediate types of Mediterranean change.
