Spills, leaks, and other environmental incidents from January to April, 2014

Spills, leaks, and other environmental incidents from January to April, 2014

Everything you see around you comes from the environment—your computer, cell phone, vehicle, clothing, office building, water, and food—yet we continue to taint our very source of survival. Every week, industrial chemicals spill, oil and gas pipelines leak, radiation spreads, and other environmental hazards constantly bombard us and our ecosystems. Most people are familiar with “the big ones,” the headlining environmental disasters that make it on the news, such as Deepwater Horizon or the West Virginia chemical spills, but what about the rest? Understanding that “the big ones” are immeasurably damaging to the environment is only the beginning; the real problems are much different. It is important to stay informed about the vast array of environmental contaminants, the ones that don’t make the headlining news, in or order to truly grasp the affect that industry has on our lives and others.

Here in the United States, our soil, air, and water is continuously exposed to contaminants that directly affect our cattle and livestock, crops, drinking water, and building materials. Whether or not we can see, smell, or taste contaminates, they are very much present; but what exactly are they doing to us? A recent Harvard study found that many common industrial chemicals—such as fluoride, DDT, and manganese—are likely they cause of neurological disorders in children [1]. Scientists have recently found that harmful air pollutants build up around oil and gas fields [2]. Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other forms of cognitive decline may be caused by environmental pollutants [3]. These are only a few examples of recent discoveries directly correlating environmental toxins to health hazards.

The places you live, the foods you eat, the air you breathe, the materials you touch, and other environmentally sensitive factors actually determine how you function throughout your daily life—your personality, mood, physical health, awareness, intellectual capacity, perception, and so much more. Americans have a tendency to follow trends and to keep up with the latest technology. But are these trends healthy for our bodies? Do we have enough accountability to use new technology so as not to do more harm than good?

Every day, spills happen around the country. Every spill further damages the environment and the very resources that we require to live. Every environmental degradation has the potential to harm us. Humanity as a whole will come face-to-face with these issues at some point. When that test comes, will it be a trying time? Or will we step up to the plate and find the responsibility necessary to live on as a thriving species, not one the leaves destruction in its wake?

Until that time comes, these daily environmental hazards must not be ignored. Before gardening, buying a house, taping a well, or any other environment-based decision, it is recommended that you take soil, air, and/or water samples and spend time doing extensive research on the area. The same is recommended for any current place of residence. While picking out food at the grocery store, closely read labels and familiarize yourself with the area where that food is produced. If making home renovations or purchasing building materials for any reason, research where the materials are derived from. Stay up to date with environmental issues beyond “the big ones,” even if just in your local area. Share this information with your family, neighbors, friends, and co-workers. Environmental issues are never isolated to a specific region, they seep all over the country and are shipped all over the world.
