To speak on pollution in the great urban centers is not no newness, we have the atmospheric pollution, sonorous pollution and others, more I existed a reality that we do not consider very next to us, that it is the pollution of the rivers, of our waters, and this pollution exactly being very perceived does not affect very our life. Being that the water sources candy are most vital to the human beings and are exactly the ones that receive more pollutant, many agricultural places, cities and zones run the risk to be without water, at the point to be arrived at a time where more places with clean waters do not exist. Learn more at this site: Debbie Staggs. ‘ ‘ A river is a natural water chain that flows with continuity. It possesss a considerable volume and it discharges in the sea, a lake or another river, and such in case that it is called affluent. They can present some nets of drenagem.’ ‘

This water that is being poluda has varies forms of being used as, for generation of energy, sports, transport leisure and tourism, domestic consumption that is the main one, used for the industry and for agricultural irrigation, therefore is so important the conservation of waters. Phelps, the great classic of the pollution of waters, is author of a phrase of great inspiration, which if became Biblical for the sanitaristas and that, very justificadamente, it comes being reproduced in innumerable works that deal with the protection of the rivers. It says: A river is something more than a geographic accident, a line in the map, a part it invariant land. It cannot be adequately portraied in terms of topography and geology. A river is an alive being, a being endowed with energy, movement, transformations. 2,1 Differences between a river healthful and contaminated a considered river healthful are that one that presents its ciliar bush that is responsible for its protection preventing erosions and assoreamentos, a considered river clean, in normal conditions, presents normally, of 8 the 10 milligrams of oxygen dissolved for liter, Hidrogeninico Potential: ph: It indicates if water is acid basic or neutral.

Spain Street

Perec's writing is defined by another trait, its extraordinary accuracy. Try to track the letter of George Perec, but I fear that being in the moment a long distance from home, not be able to get from my memory so arduous recovery period, much less with the accuracy expected. In my street buildings (are being built as residential ghettos) are not necessarily aligned alongside each other, even if those who give their side of the road. This means that now can be hurt by the alignment back to the main road, as a single street number may consist of several blocks arranged in a circle and enclosed by fencing equal to the outside of buildings, forming small social ghettos with their own gardens, pools and playgrounds. Thus, the alignment of the buildings are maintained in a circular motion, always trying to keep the facade in parallel alignment. In my neighborhood the street does not separate houses, separate rectangular blocks, circular, even octagonal-shaped hives, whose windows and doors are symmetrically arranged. Surely alignment as it wound not be allowed to hurt their own training.

Sometimes these blocks are interrupted by gardens or churches. My street has a name and, according to urban planning, even numbers are on the right and odd numbers on the left. Both start numbering given that the lowest number begins oriented nearest main road, always taking as reference the Puerta del Sol, Km a Oa mileage computation of Spain. My street is part of a neighborhood a "product of gentrification.

This everything, exactly I having given long explanations to the censor of whom music if related to a return to the things of the nature, showing that the letter had phrases as ' ' I want to go the man where not tocou' ' ' ' I want to walk bare-footed in the side of a river, to the edge of this vida' '. It did not advance. It was irreducible and in some periodicals of the time, the name consisted as. Well. The beginning of the letter of the song the one that I related to me at the beginning, said: ' ' it wanted to be, as the wind that passes running of north the south without stopping; it wanted to be, as the water of the rivers that run for the sea and if they raise to skies; later falling, under the rain form to wet the hair of that they know to love; I it wanted to be the sun and in each dawn, millions of faces to kiss ' ' We were in the dawn of the ecological conscience in Brazil and the song if it related to the natural cycle of waters, thing that still happened to the time, here it is that had a certain previsibility the respect. Today, more it is not thus. Please visit Secretary of Agriculture if you seek more information.

Thirty and six years if had passed e, as well as us obstruct our arteries with fats and artificial foods, suffering as to consequncia serious coronary problems, also we full our rivers, true arteries of the planet, with plastic bags, pets, human dejections, no-biodegradvel garbage of all luck and create a series of obstacles for its natural flow. We knock down extensive areas of forests, we cut the trees of our cities, destroy the bushes ciliares of the rivers that had had its sanded and extended stream beds, and they, having been without its way of course fixed throughout millions of years, had finished completely being without control. The ominous result is there for everybody to see, consubstanciado in floods that finish cutting with a scythe hundreds of lives. We attack the planet, we uncontrol the climate and now we are paying the account. What he is noteworthy in the recent catastrophes is exactly the fact of that the proprietors of many of the reached residences, had gotten in justice the right to construct in places where they could not make it.

They had not been for those places for necessity. In the truth, we can conclude that in the bulge of the decision that gave prevailing to them, she had implicit a sentence of conviction to the death. It will be that one day we will learn the lesson? Jorge Andres Irion Jobim. Lawyer of Saint Maria, RS

Dissolving the most varied substances, it she makes possible the accomplishment of the diverse basic chemical reactions it to be alive, thus making, that the survival of each being and all the biosfera is dependent of it. However, currently the launching of sewers is excessive, without or with deficient treatment in rivers, lakes and bays causing the pollution of this so valuable good for the humanity. Get more background information with materials from Jill Schlesinger. The argument used for many was this when in middle of November of the year of 2005, the Health department together with the State Secretariat of Health of YOU, had divulged that in the city of Araguatins, one was occurring occasions caused for a mysterious ocular illness, the same one is .causing of injuries in the eyes of the infectada person and even though the average loss of the vision.

Structural Village

The authors evidence that the allied social iniquities to the lack of habitacionais programs of popular houses that have taken many poor workers to live in areas that offer ambient risks, such as: aterros, lixes, stations of treatment of sewers, cement refineries, plants and etc. The Report Habitat divulged for the Organization of United Nations in 2006 showed that the number of people living in precarious conditions in the Federal District increased 398% in 10 years. The index places Brasilia as the Brazilian capital with bigger growth of the slum quarters in the period of 1991 the 2000. The increase is explained by the sprouting of new invasions as Itapo and, for the population adensamento of some slum quarters as the Structural Village (MONTENEGRO, 2006).

The Structural one is the second bigger slum quarter of the Federal District, however the area in more critical conditions of the DF is considered. The inhabitants suffer with narrow streets and without asphalt, lack of schools and hospitals. The families possess low purchasing power. About 40% of the economically active population she works as independent. The incidence of ambulant is great and subempregados.

Valley to detach that more than 15% of the inhabitants of the Structural one survive of the collection of solid residues in the place. (SEDUMA, 2008). These data underline the exclusion condition where these social groups live. The Structural Village groups aspects that disclose to the condition of poverty of the inhabitants and the distribution of the ambient risks.

They until admit a guilt parcel. They know of the evil that they cause to the nature and the city, cultural patrimony of the humanity. But she makes little to change the scene of devastao. Survey of also of Coralline the Cora poetess millions alone to restore the large houses. So far, no cent of the R$ 2 million announced for the federal government and of the R$ 250 a thousand emergenciais promised for the state and the Iphan had arrived at the city.

With the tragedy, the aggressions suffered for the basin of the Red river had come to tona. ' ' Now, we wait the implantation of the Area of Proteo Ambiental (APA) of the basin of rio' ' , it says the ambientalista and councilman in Gois for the Green Party, Rodrigo Santana. One of the most important norms of the APA is the impediment of the deforestation in a band of 30 meters of the edges of the rivers and tributaries. It would carry it of magnifying of the APA of Golden Mountain range, that protects the Red river, adjacent brooks and streams, in an area of 16.851 hectares, was signed by the governor of Gois, Marconi Perillo, in January of 2000. But it did not leave the paper. When to leave, great part of the APA will be inside of particular lands. It will be necessary work of the inspectors to make with that they respect it to the farmers.

Degradation of 8 a thousand hectares Survey of the Agency Ambient sample that 8 a thousand hectares of land had been almost deforested throughout the Red river to give place to the pasture.

Mobility Development

Of this movement a particularitity of the proper system in producing space differentiations at a moment would result, where it would have areas of accumulation of capital (developed regions) and areas of low application of capitals (underdeveloped regions). However, at a following moment, the extreme accumulation of capitals in the areas for where the same ones if had directed would ahead form conditions of low accomplishment of profits for the excess of capitals in relation to the capacity of accumulation of the areas then with deficiency of capitals, but with other conditions you harness of profit and accumulation. Smith (1988) thus places the question: In the basement of the standard of different development it is the logic and the trend of the capital in direction what we will call movement ' ' in vem&#039 goes and; ' of the capital. If the accumulation of the capital causes the geographic development and if the direction of this development is guided by the profit tax, then we can think about the world as one ' ' surface of lucro' ' produced for the proper capital, (…). The mobility of the capital causes the development of areas with high taxes of profit and the subdesenvolvimento of those areas where if it verifies low taxes of profit. But the proper process of development leads to the reduction of this tax of higher profit. (…), the development of the productive forces in data place leads to a lesser unemployment, a growth in the wage level, to the development of unions and so on, all helping to lower the tax of profits and to move away the true reason for the development. (…). In the opposing polar region, of the subdesenvolvimento, the lack of capital or its constant excess it takes the high taxes of unemployment, basses wages and reduced levels of organization of the workers.

River Uruguay

Finally, the creation of the lake can generate a change in the micron local climate, with alteration of the temperature, humidity and of the cycle of rains. In some situations oturismo also it can be affected, therefore beyond the loss of the fauna and flora, asbarragens and its lakes, also they destroy landscapes of rare beauty. Algunsexemplos is: Itaipu that flooded the Jump of the Seven Falls; It that flooded oEstreito of the River Uruguay; Great Bar that flooded the Cnion of the Encanados.Praticamente all the hydroelectric plants finishes forever flooding lost gorgeous landscapes queso. On the other hand the reservoirs can constituirbalnerios that they serve to the aquatic playful activities fishes as it. 3 – Ambient and Social deImpactos methods of Reduction Exactly when the studies of Ambient Impact are carried through of formacorreta, pointing the true ones impacts generated for an hydroelectric plant, namaioria of the times the actions of mitigao of these impacts do not arrive compensarde fact the negative effect. Ahead of the diverse social and ambient impacts already cited, surgea great question argued untiringly for the competent ambient agencies: How to reduce its effect? First, for occasion of the installation of the seedbed, some impactospodem to be managed through plans of handling, disposal of solid residues and guiding for recycling plant.

Ainstalao of small stations of treatment of sewer helps to minimize aagresso that the effluent bathroom cause in the way. This would contribute for adiminuio of the feeling of invasion on the part of the construction company of the usinanas cities who will house its employees and will keep its seedbed of workmanships. The related impact population aodeslocamento can be said exactly that almost impossible of it is sereliminado, therefore that all the population is realocada in other areas nose obtains to reconstruct daily an identical one what already it existed. Families, commerce, churches, that before were next, have its modified routines devidos distances that after appear the construction of the barrage.

Brazilian Way

Thus while impacts proceeding from the wild action of the man on the environment only reached the poor persons (diligent and laboring of the great plants), nobody never touched in the subject or if it touched outside in very superficial way. But, when the problems if extend compromising, also the rich pocket and the health of and the powerful ones, are question gain force and re-echo, become it main guideline in way the great international conferences. I do not say that these are not important, as well as I do not say that we really need to take care of better of the environment where we live, but to much hypocrisy and games of involved interests in way to everything this! If thus it was not what it would explain, therefore, the refusal of the United States front to the Protocol of Kioto? Or same the attitude of Algor (former-candidate to the presidency of the United States of America), when nailing a visibly sustainable speech in way the biggest nets of communication and advertising it world and, however spending ' ' rivers of dinheiro' ' (about 200 million annual dollars) in system of air cooled in its house? An at least incongruous position! On behalf of a cleaner world, more healthful, ecologically balanced and equitable, Brazil recently signed an agreement of technological cooperation for production and commercialization of etanol (substance gotten from the fermentation of you sweeten and used as combustible for the automobile industry – biocombustivel). It would be this proposal really interesting for Brazilian us? It will be that all would be being benefited with the signature of this agreement? the consequences of the exacerbado plantation of the sugar cane for the ground and the native species of the region? the populations that live in these areas for where will be remanejadas; they would be these absorbed in its totality as man power? At last it would be the sustainable development really fulfilling the proposal idealized or spread out internationally? Why on behalf of the common good and of the maintenance of the life some must open hand of its resources and necessities, while others only dictate rules to be fulfilled? Why exist severe laws and punishments those that transgress the established norms and standards (generally poor and despossuidos), while others are unpunished, also having the support and/or covering of great agencies? (servant also to fiscalize the transgressors of the environmental laws).
