Cambodia has its 440 kilometer-long coastline scattered with mangrove forests, coral reefs, seagrass beds and other coastal ecosystems which play a significant role in ecosystem productivity and to people. These ecosystems are fundamental to the livelihoods of millions of Cambodians and to the nation as a whole. Not only do they perform an essential role in supplying people with fish, a staple food rich in protein for Cambodians, but are also vital to coastal protection, tourism and biodiversity.The conservation and management of mangroves, coral reefs and seagrass beds are therefore vital to the sustainable management of coastal and marine fisheries and to ensure Cambodia’s people continue to gain economic, cultural and nutritional benefit from the resources. Cambodia's coastal and marine areas are biodiversity rich areas and have significant values of conservation value including marine mammals such as the dugong and marine dolphins, whale, marine turtles, crustaceans and mollusks etc. Natural ecosystems of mangroves, coral reefs and seagrass beds all provide a wide range of services to Cambodia—fishing for critical food resources, coastal protection, tourism and biodiversity. They also provide important natural habitats essential to sustaining the marine fisheries of Cambodia. Destruction of these natural habitats results in a loss of breeding, spawning, nursery and feeding grounds for many marine species, leading to a reduction in fishstocks and other coastal and marine fauna and flora and to serious impacts on human well-being. Coastal wetlands in Cambodia have not received the same attention as freshwater wetlands. However, in the recent years, coastal wetlands of Cambodia have been gaining attention because it was recognized that many rural poor people are reliant on the collection of coastal resources for their livelihoods and household income generation (WI, 2012) and the significant roles healthy coastal ecosystems play in reducing vulnerability to hazards by supporting livelihoods and in acting as natural physical buffers "natural infrastructure" to reduce the impacts of hazard events (Sudmeier & Ash, 2009). Cambodia's coasts are facing issues due to Conversion of coastal land for agriculture and aquaculture Over exploitation of fisheries Urban development Sand mining and dredging Destruction and degradation of coastal habitats Climate change

Pollution is defined as the addition of any substance (solid, liquid, or gas) or any form of energy (such as heat, sound, or radioactivity) to the environment at a faster rate than it can be dispersed, diluted, decomposed, recycled, or stored in some harmless form. The combination of three main factors are the cause of notable unhealthy levels of air pollution in California: the activities of over 39 million people, a mountainous terrain that traps pollution, and a warm climate that helps form ozone and other pollutants. Eight of the ten cities in the US with the highest year-round concentration of particulate matter between 2013 and 2015 were in California, and seven out of the ten cities in the US with the worst ozone pollution were also in California. Studies show that pollutants prevalent in California are linked to several health issues, including asthma, lung cancer, birth complications, and premature death. In 2016, Bakersfield, California recorded the highest level of airborne pollutants of any city in the United States.Water pollution is defined by the Federal Clean Water Act as "dredge spoil, solid waste, incinerator residue, sewage, garbage, sewage sludge, munitions, chemical wastes, biological materials, heat, wrecked or discarded equipment, rock, sand, cellar dirt, and industrial, municipal, and agricultural waste discharged into water." In 2011, an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study showed that water quality standards were not met on 1.6 million acres of California's 3 million acres of lakes, bays, wetlands and estuaries. The Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act governs the water quality regulation in California.

EOG Resources is building a huge sand mine in northwest Cooke County Texas. They propose to process up to 5 million gallons of water per day, which threatens the Trinity Aquifer. The silica being mined contains a known carcinogen. So, the air quality is also being threatened. As the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality considers an air quality permit for EOG, a public meeting was held in Muenster Texas on August 13, 2011. This video was one of the comments made during the public meeting. Governor Rick Perry appointed the TCEQ commissioners who override TCEQ staff regarding community safety decisions.

$1.4 Million to develop breakthrough technologies for cleaning up our oceans. To be prepared to safeguard oceans and shores, the X PRIZE Foundation is announcing the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE to find the most effective and environmentally-safe solutions for capturing oil from all spills at the spill site, thus limiting their impacts and protecting our oceans, shores, marshes, and, importantly, the health and well-being of the people and wildlife which live and thrive in these communities. "With more then ten thousands of ocean oil platforms across the globe, and million of barrels of oil being transported every day by tankers, it's not a question of 'if' there will be another oil spill, but 'when,'" stated Wendy Schmidt. "We need to come up with better solutions to capture oil on the surface, to minimize the harm these spills are causing to marine life, coastal wetlands, and beaches, and to our livelihoods—a harm that can last for generations." http://iprizecleanoceans.org

California Fracking Bill Signed Into Law By Governor Jerry Brown California's first regulations on fracking and related oil production practices will go into effect next year in the most populous U.S. state under a bill signed into law by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown. Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is the practice of injecting water, sand and chemicals underground to crack rock formations and free up oil and natural gas. The technology makes it possible for oil companies to unlock California's vast Monterey Shale deposit, estimated to hold 15.4 billion barrels of recoverable oil. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/21/california-fracking-bill_n_3965069.html http://www.wochit.com

Alberta's Water Conversation - A Foundation for Change
 
24:42
Andy Ridge describes what Albertans said at "Water Conversations", the public consultations on water policy for Alberta, conducted in the spring of 2013. As the Calgary Flood happened the day of his presentation, Andy Ridge talked about Alberta's emerging challenges in water policy. He discusses integrated resource management as a cornerstone and the development of management frameworks to address cumulative effects through regional thresholds. Agriculture, Alberta's development of unconventional energy (oilsands and shale gas and oil) and growth of its communities are increasing pressure on water. Water Conversations was about talking to Albertans about how Alberta moves forward. Water Conversations covered four topics: healthy lakes, hydraulic fracturing, drinking water and wastewater treatment and water management. Water Conservations involved 44 sessions in 20 locations attended by 1300 Albertans. Using a world café format, this is what they heard from Albertans: education and access to information, increased enforcement, more action, less talk, more accountability. Water conservation in resource development was a strong message from Albertans. Andy Ridge concludes with a summary what will come back from the consultations and how that links to work in progress (the wetland policy) and items that require more work (water allocations (water licensing)). Since he was speaking to a Watershed Planning Advisory Council (WPAC), he emphasized short-term directions that may involve WPACs (items in bold). Andy Ridge is Director of Water Policy, Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. His presentation was the keynote address at the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance's AGM, June 20, 2013.

Penn. Health Board Ordered To Ignore Fracking Health Complaints - 128
 
07:02
Pennsylvania, the fifth most corrupt state, ordered it's health boards to ignore fracking related health complaints. Yet the Supreme Court has vacated the 300 foot rules established on fracking near: wetlands, lakes, rivers and streams. However, the industry is poised to start contaminating more water sources after they have purchased more of Nestle water stock. Gov. John Corbett has asked politely that the companies pretty please scout's honor the 300 ft rule. Older drilling sites have properties where saltwater breakout brings fracking chemicals to the surface and contaminate underground drinking water aquifers and wells in Wyoming and elsewhere. Hydraulic fracturing uses a process where depleted uranium rounds are shot deep under the earth in the natural gas extraction process. The process uses thousands of unknown chemical substances that are grandfathered from having to report toxicity. Known as the, "Halliburton Loophole," procedures or requirements for drillers of underground injection control (UIC) program are exempt from the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. This involves millions of gallons of water that must be injected back into the ground once completed since you can't treat radioactive waste-water. Fracking produces 3x as much methane that is beneficial from the release of natural gas. Methane, a destructive greenhouse gas will accelerate climate change at a geometric rate of speed unlike any thing the planet has seen before. Gas drilling in the Arctic Ocean will have similar effects and so will the utilization of the Keystone XL pipeline.

Moreover, it accounts for 65% of the overall population of the GCC countries and 42% of its GDP. Saudi Arabia does not have a strong history in environmentalism. Thus, as the number of population increases and the industrial activity grows, environmental issues pose a real challenge to the country. Lack of environmental policy can be linked to an enormous reliance on oil. Due to intense fossil fuel usage, Saudi Arabia has generated a number of environmental issues. Urbanization and high standards of living contribute to ground, water, and air pollution. Agriculture and overconsumption of natural resources cause deforestation and desertification. Likewise, Saudi Arabia’s oil industry subsidizes energy use and magnifies carbon dioxide emissions. These environmental issues cause a variety of health problems including asthma and cancer. Some environmental action is taking place such as the construction of a renewable energy industry. Policies and programs are also being developed to ensure environmental sustainability.

River ecosystems are part of larger watershed networks or catchments, where smaller headwater streams drain into mid-size streams, which progressively drain into larger river networks. River ecosystems are prime examples of lotic ecosystems. Lotic refers to flowing water, from the Latin lotus, meaning washed. Lotic waters range from springs only a few centimeters wide to major rivers kilometers in width. Much of this article applies to lotic ecosystems in general, including related lotic systems such as streams and springs. Lotic ecosystems can be contrasted with lentic ecosystems, which involve relatively still terrestrial waters such as lakes, ponds, and wetlands. Together, these two ecosystems form the more general study area of freshwater or aquatic ecology. The following unifying characteristics make the ecology of running waters unique among aquatic habitats. Flow is unidirectional. There is a state of continuous physical change. There is a high degree of spatial and temporal heterogeneity at all scales (microhabitats). Variability between lotic systems is quite high. The biota is specialized to live with flow conditions.

In other words, an alkane consists of hydrogen and carbon atoms arranged in a tree structure in which all the carbon–carbon bonds are single. Alkanes have the general chemical formula CnH2n+2. The alkanes range in complexity from the simplest case of methane (CH4), where n = 1 (sometimes called the parent molecule), to arbitrarily large and complex molecules, like pentacontane (C50H102) or 6-ethyl-2-methyl-5-(1-methylethyl)octane, an isomer of tetradecane (C14H30) IUPAC defines alkanes as "acyclic branched or unbranched hydrocarbons having the general formula CnH2n+2, and therefore consisting entirely of hydrogen atoms and saturated carbon atoms". However, some sources use the term to denote any saturated hydrocarbon, including those that are either monocyclic (i.e. the cycloalkanes) or polycyclic, despite their having a different general formula (i.e. cycloalkanes are CnH2n). In an alkane, each carbon atom is sp3-hybridized with 4 sigma bonds (either C–C or C–H), and each hydrogen atom is joined to one of the carbon atoms (in a C–H bond). The longest series of linked carbon atoms in a molecule is known as its carbon skeleton or carbon backbone. The number of carbon atoms may be thought of as the size of the alkane. One group of the higher alkanes are waxes, solids at standard ambient temperature and pressure (SATP), for which the number of carbons in the carbon backbone is greater than about 17. With their repeated –CH2 units, the alkanes constitute a homologous series of organic compounds in which the members differ in molecular mass by multiples of 14.03 u (the total mass of each such methylene-bridge unit, which comprises a single carbon atom of mass 12.01 u and two hydrogen atoms of mass ~1.01 u each). Alkanes are not very reactive and have little biological activity. They can be viewed as molecular trees upon which can be hung the more active/reactive functional groups of biological molecules. The alkanes have two main commercial sources: petroleum (crude oil) and natural gas. An alkyl group, generally abbreviated with the symbol R, is a functional group that, like an alkane, consists solely of single-bonded carbon and hydrogen atoms connected acyclically—for example, a methyl or ethyl group.

Between 1900 and 2016, the sea level rose by 16–21 cm (6.3–8.3 in). More precise data gathered from satellite radar measurements reveal an accelerating rise of 7.5 cm (3.0 in) from 1993 to 2017, which is a trend of roughly 30 cm (12 in) per century. This acceleration is due mostly to human-caused global warming, which is driving thermal expansion of seawater and the melting of land-based ice sheets and glaciers. Between 1993 and 2018, thermal expansion of the oceans contributed 42% to sea level rise; the melting of temperate glaciers, 21%; Greenland, 15%; and Antarctica, 8%. Climate scientists expect the rate to further accelerate during the 21st century.Projecting future sea level is challenging, due to the complexity of many aspects of the climate system. As climate research into past and present sea levels leads to improved computer models, projections have consistently increased. For example, in 2007 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projected a high end estimate of 60 cm (2 ft) through 2099, but their 2014 report raised the high-end estimate to about 90 cm (3 ft). A number of later studies have concluded that a global sea level rise of 200 to 270 cm (6.6 to 8.9 ft) this century is "physically plausible". A conservative estimate of the long-term projections is that each Celsius degree of temperature rise triggers a sea level rise of approximately 2.3 metres (4.2 ft/degree Fahrenheit) over a period of two millennia: an example of climate inertia.The sea level will not rise uniformly everywhere on Earth, and it will even drop in some locations. Local factors include tectonic effects and subsidence of the land, tides, currents and storms. Sea level rises can influence human populations considerably in coastal and island regions. Widespread coastal flooding is expected with several degrees of warming sustained for millennia. Further effects are higher storm-surges and more dangerous tsunamis, displacement of populations, loss and degradation of agricultural land and damage in cities. Natural environments like marine ecosystems are also affected, with fish, birds and plants losing parts of their habitat.Societies can respond to sea level rise in three different ways: to retreat, to accommodate and to protect. Sometimes these adaptation strategies go hand in hand, but at other times choices have to be made among different strategies. Ecosystems that adapt to rising sea levels by moving inland might not always be able to do so, due to natural or man-made barriers.

The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal is composed primarily of carbon, along with variable quantities of other elements, chiefly hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen. Coal is a fossil fuel that forms when dead plant matter is converted into peat, which in turn is converted into lignite, then sub-bituminous coal, after that bituminous coal, and lastly anthracite. This involves biological and geological processes. The geological processes take place over millions of years.China mines almost half the world's coal followed by India with about a tenth. Australia accounts for about a third of world coal exports followed by Indonesia and Russia; while the largest importer is Japan. Throughout human history, coal has been used as an energy resource, primarily burned for the production of electricity and heat, and is also used for industrial purposes, such as refining metals. Coal is the largest source of energy for the generation of electricity worldwide, as well as one of the largest worldwide anthropogenic sources of carbon dioxide releases. The extraction and use of coal makes people ill and damages the environment, including by climate change. Therefore, as part of the worldwide energy transition, many countries have stopped using or use less coal.

Earth's body of soil, called the pedosphere, has four important functions: as a medium for plant growth as a means of water storage, supply and purification as a modifier of Earth's atmosphere as a habitat for organismsAll of these functions, in their turn, modify the soil. The pedosphere interfaces with the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, and the biosphere. The term pedolith, used commonly to refer to the soil, translates to ground stone in the sense "fundamental stone". Soil consists of a solid phase of minerals and organic matter (the soil matrix), as well as a porous phase that holds gases (the soil atmosphere) and water (the soil solution). Accordingly, soil scientists can envisage soils as a three-state system of solids, liquids, and gases.Soil is a product of several factors: the influence of climate, relief (elevation, orientation, and slope of terrain), organisms, and the soil's parent materials (original minerals) interacting over time. It continually undergoes development by way of numerous physical, chemical and biological processes, which include weathering with associated erosion. Given its complexity and strong internal connectedness, soil ecologists regard soil as an ecosystem.Most soils have a dry bulk density (density of soil taking into account voids when dry) between 1.1 and 1.6 g/cm3, while the soil particle density is much higher, in the range of 2.6 to 2.7 g/cm3.

While Obama's environmental agenda prioritized the reduction of carbon emissions through the use of clean renewable energy, the Trump administration has sought to increase fossil fuel use and scrap many environmental regulations which he has referred to as impediments to business. In July 2018, amid numerous ethics investigations, Trump's first appointment for administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scott Pruit, resigned and he was replaced by Andrew Wheeler. Trump has pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord. Immediately upon his inauguration, the White House released an "America First Energy Plan", which focused on increasing combustion of fossil fuels without mentioning renewable energy. The plan would repeal many Obama policies including the Climate Action Plan, and limit the EPA's mission of protecting air and water quality. In April 2018, Pruitt announced plans to undo the Obama administration's auto fuel efficiency and emissions standards. Trump campaigned on a pledge to roll back government regulations, and within days of taking office he signed executive orders to approve two controversial oil pipelines and to require federal review of the Clean Water Rule and the Clean Power Plan. Trump is calling for more drilling in national parks and has announced plans to open up more federal land for energy development. Trump's Department of the Interior has announced plans to allow drilling in nearly all U.S. waters, the largest expansion of offshore oil and gas leasing ever proposed. The administration has been charged with re-writing EPA pollution- control policies of chemicals that are known to be serious health risks to make them more friendly to the chemical industry. A 2018 analysis reported that ...
