      The scope of the book ranges from the sources of pollutants and their environmental behaviour, to their effects on human and non-human receptors, to the technologies and strategies available for control. While air pollution in the home is a big problem, the same problem exists at work. Indeed, a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation suggests that for Shanghai, air pollution is costing its service sector billions of dollars each year in lost productivity. Older people are majorly exposed to diseases induced by air pollution.

      If there are external benefits, such as in public safetyless of the good may be produced than would be the case if the producer were to receive payment for the external benefits to others. Some sources of pollution, such as nuclear power plants or oil tankerscan produce widespread and potentially hazardous releases when accidents occur. What is that psychological dynamic? If the negative impact on productivity that we found in our research are the result of diminished cognitive function, it could mean that the negative impact of pollution on productivity may be greatest in higher-skilled jobs. Mercury has been linked to developmental deficits in children and neurologic symptoms.

      The point at which the social marginal cost and market demand intersect gives the socially optimal level of pollution. Visitors, especially women, often became desperate when nature called. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides can cause acid rain which lowers the pH value of soil. Older people are majorly exposed to diseases induced by air pollution. Of course. JP: I think the connection as just described has always been there, because the physiology and etiology of disease have not really changed.

Workplace pollution book

I see a workplace that has become shockingly inhumane. Companies should care about what they are doing to the social environment, not just the physical environment.

An October study by the Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health found that global pollution, specifically toxic air, water, soils and workplaces, kill nine million people annually, which is triple the number of deaths caused by AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined, and 15 times higher than deaths caused by wars and other forms of human violence.

And, by the way, when I talk to HR people, they say the numbers we have are certainly wrong: They are too low. If an area does not meet attainment, it's designated a nonattainment area.

Of course. However, globally human-made pollutants from combustion, construction, mining, agriculture and warfare are increasingly significant in the air pollution equation. Some sources of pollution, such as nuclear power plants or oil tankerscan produce widespread and potentially hazardous releases when accidents occur.

At work, the air pollution problem is entirely in the hands of employers, although government agencies and better air quality proponents have been known to affect their behavior in this arena.

Thermal pollutionis a temperature change in natural water bodies caused by human influence, such as use of water as coolant in a power plant. Why is this normal? You begin with that premise: A large fraction — some estimates are 75 percent — of the disease burden in the U.

The borderless nature of atmosphere and oceans inevitably resulted in the implication of pollution on a planetary level with the issue of global warming. Awareness of atmospheric pollution spread widely after World War II, with fears triggered by reports of radioactive fallout from atomic warfare and testing.

From the disappearance of good health insurance to the psychological effects of long hours, the modern workplace is taking its toll on all of us.

Sometimes firms choose, or are forced by regulation, to reduce the amount of pollution that they are producing.
