INTRODUCTION


Globalization is actual problem nowadays. There are reasons for thinking that environmental threats and environmental awareness display globalization. Environmental problems threaten the globe. Such a threat to the planet, even the more than world-wide cultural homogeneity should perhaps lead us to shift our thinking, analysis and policy - making onto a global level.
Some ecological problems, such as global warming, carry claims to globality in the very names by which they are known, while other, such as acid rain, make us think in terms of threats to the well - being of the planet.
Many environmental organizations make much of their global character.
The aim of the report is to review environmental issues on common nature pollution that impresses the compression of the globe.


THE GLOBE'S ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS


LAND POLLUTION

The land is polluted, because humans have buried things there and carried out messy operations on it. For example, it is increasing being found that current and former industrial sites are heavily polluted.
Sometimes we would perhaps not expect contaminated land to constitute much more than a local problem, but one country's land may be contaminated by the actions of other countries. In that way, land contamination can easily be an international issue. While increased regulation has meant that some forms of land contamination are declining, the world - wide growth of manufacturing and chemical plants dictates that overall the problem is the increase. It is in danger of becoming a fully world - wide problem because of the spread of polluting industrial activity.
Land is also polluted when waste is dumped in quarries, gravel pits, drained lakes or specially - dug hol.
As world industrial production continues to rise and as trade brings manufactured and packaged goods to more and more people, these waste disposal practices are spreading throughout the globe. Pollution from landfill is already causing environmental problems in the so - called "newly" industrial countries (Taiwan, Mexico and Brazil).
Since the industrialized countries continue pollution the amount of waste tends to grow correspondingly. While very significant changes in the amount of waste produced can be envisaged, companies, marketing divisions are generally reluctant to reduce their use of packaging. For example, beer companies commonly differentiate their products with distinctive bottles.
Problems of methane gas production and of water leaking indicate that pollution incidents in the three media (land, water and air) are not really distinct.
