The Top Ten Worst Pollution Problems Worldwide 2011
The Blacksmith Institute, a US-based environmental organization, and Green Cross Switzerland are presenting a 2011 top ten list of the world's worst pollution problems.
The 2011 Environmental Report focuses on sites with a clear, fixed source of toxic pollution that can be targeted for remediation efforts. Its focus is specifically on pollutants considered “toxic” by the Blacksmith Institute Technical Advisory Board. This scope excludes pollution problems where the source is unclear or distributed – such as automobile emissions, general urban air pollution, non-point source water pollution from urban storm runoff, general household or commercial waste disposal, and oil or chemical spills from transport and distribution activities.
