The paper 'The Infectivity of the Environment in Abu Dhabi' is a perfect example of an environmental studies case study. It is the balance of natural elements in the world around us that lends it the beauty and the harmony that is called nature. Nature operates through a balance, through the oft explained water cycle. Through naturally planned cycles, the ratios of all elements remain the same and while the presence of the human population may have created a simple disturbance in the balance, it is the unimpeded and unchecked addition of man-made wastage and rubbish that has created the current situation.
Environmentally it is a chaos that we live in today and the continuously aggravating environmental situation is further laying waste the grounds and the waters of the earth. The infectivity of the environment and the normal elements by the introduction or the stimulation of the chemicals and other grievous elements are regarded as pollution. In an identical way, the induction of great noise levels, smoke, and the chemicals in the air worsens atmospheric pollution; the induction of the chemicals and the wasting in water soil water, and so on.
Due to the unsurpassed excavation of earth sources, minerals, and oils, the environment and atmosphere are also declining at a continuous rate. Despite the fact that the use of these natural resources had its effects on nature and exerted some effects of increasing the pollution throughout time, it was mainly after the atomic explosion that the problem of the pollution aggravation came into a glaring focus. The events like the large smoked out the fog of 1952, in London also drew the attention of the people to the scenario of the greenhouse gases to rise.
With the effect growing of pollution on the climate and with the total warming reality in rising carries out and becoming, it becomes very essential to make steady and stable efforts in this respect and to limit the effects before they shorten further the life from the planet ground something needs to be done for sustainable development. The risks of pollution strongly affect the developed countries and the sectors in populated mass. The United Arab Emirates has a population rate that is continuously on the rise since the area is rich with jobs and opportunities.
This also attracts investment that in turn gives rise to constructions and excavations of earth reservoirs. With investments by foreign countries, there is also the problem of increasing the traffic population and the increasing interference of foreign countries. The traffic and the growing number of gas and oil refineries around the area have strongly affected the environmental conditions of Abu Dhabi. The conception of a plan for the controlling of this continuously aggravating situation is important because the situation is still under control and can be handled through careful deliberation.
Within the scope of the governmental budgets, energy-saving trends should be taken up countrywide. Likewise, excavations into oil wells should be decreased and done so that the long term future is also secured in addition to the traffic planning and other steps that can be taken after considering the agency through which this could be balanced.
