5 Industries that Threaten the Globe and How We are Going to Save It

5 Industries that Threaten the Globe and How We are Going to Save It

As our knowledge of how to clean up and prevent pollution increases and scientists slowly discover why we get certain illnesses and diseases, the world becomes more conscious of creating ways to make work environments safer; not only for the laborers, but for the entire human race. The goal is not necessarily to shut the processes down, but to reroute the toxic chemicals emitted in order to capture their vapors from releasing into the ozone. It's a new generation of wind, tidal and solar energy generators providing the world with its power. Continents are rapidly expanding their renewable energy resources, budgets and plans in order to eliminate dependency on these medieval practices that shortens the future of a healthy humanity.
