Chapter 6: The Environment – Part I, Hite and Seitz (2016) note that
pollution and global warming were an important concern of the first
world conference on the environment that was held in Sweden in 1972.
Principle 6 of that declaration stated that we must stop the release of
pollutants and heat that cannot be effectively processed by our
environment (Declaration of the United Nations Conference on the Human
Environment. 1972. Chapter 11. p. 2. ).Thinking

effectively processed by our environment, which are the most critical to

pollutants that need to be addressed. Land can become polluted by
household garbage and by industrial waste. In 2014, Americans produced
about 258 million tons of solid waste,
according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A little over
half of the waste — 136 million tons— was gathered in landfills. Only
about 34% was recycled or composted. https://www.livescience.com/22728-pollution-facts….Identify three pollutants you consider to be the most critical to address and explain why you believe they are most important1.
