Flood Caused Garbage Islands In China’s Yangtze River-Pictures

3 08 2010

Garbage in Yangtze River.

There are garbage islands in China’s Yangtze River after the terrible flood.

Flood caused garbage islands in China's Yangtze River

In some part, the garbage were so thick that people can stand on it.

Branches from fallen trees.

Flood caused the garbage islands by carrying garbage from one place to another and dump them into the river.

Garbage pollute the river and can cause health problems.

The flood damaged buildings and trees.

The debris from the flood caused the garbage islands too.

Water levels crept lower from a record high in the reservoir behind the massive Three Gorges Dam on Sunday, but authorities warned they did not know whether the drop would continue.

The Three Gorges Dam is on the Yangtze River.

The Three Gorge Dam on China's Yangtze River.

And the amount of garbage in the river could jam the gate of the dam.

The decaying garbage can also pollute the water quality.

The water will became smelly and dirty.

And there will be lots of  bad germs in the river.

The germs can kill the fishes and other animals that live in the river.

Contaminated water is bad for human too.

It can cause Cholera, diarrhoea, food poisoning, some skin diseases and other health problems.

Dangerous chemicals were also swept to the river by the flood.

I knew that flood cause garbage but I did not know that it can caused garbage islands.

This is another disaster for China.

Oil Spill In China-It Can Happen In Malaysia Too

20 07 2010

On Friday night, July 16 2010 an oil pipeline exploded at the Xingang port in China.

More than 2000 fire fighters and 338 fire engines worked for 15 hours to stop the fire.

The explosion caused an oil spill around the Dalian port.

This oil spill is not as bad as the spill in the Gulf Of Mexico.

Oil spill can happen anywhere in the world.

So we must be careful to prevent it.

It is a disaster.

Oil spill caused serious water pollution and can pollute the lands around it.

It can kill animals such as fish, crab, clam and birds.

It can kill plants too.

Cleaning oil spill is hard and very expensive.

Below are photos of the oil spill in China from Yahoo News.

A 0.9-meter-diameter oil pipeline exploded at 6 p.m. Friday near Dalian's Xingang Harbor, triggering an adjacent smaller pipeline to explode too. The oil leak seriously polluted 11 square kilometers of sea and slightly affected 50 square kilometers also, according to local environment protection bureau. (Xinhua/Tian Jingyue) (wqq)

Efforts were under way to contain and clean up a large oil slick after pipeline explosions at a northeastern Chinese port sent greasy black plumes into the ocean, state media reported Sunday.

Is Malaysia ready for oil spill?





Stop Destroying Our Earth

27 04 2010

People like to do things that harm the Earth.

Wars, cutting down trees, littering, polluting and forest fire are some of the things that harm our environment.

Cutting down trees especially on the hillside caused landslide that will push down new trees and that tree will push down other trees; so more and more trees will be pushed down.

I think it is like playing domino; when we push down one tile, it will push down another tile and more tiles will fall down.

Littering can cause flash flood when the rubbish block the drain; the flood will damaged buildings and plants and caused water pollution and leave rubbish everywhere.

Industrial wastes from factories cause water pollution, air pollution and toxic rain.

Cars, trucks, buses, ships, boats aeroplanes and other vehicles caused air pollution.

In the cities there are lots of buildings and vehicles but not much trees.

And we are also using too much fuel energy.

We cause global warming and global warming causes disasters that destroy the Earth.
