From Mexico City to Chernobyl, Ukraine, here are 20 places that are feeling the effects of pollution !

Subscribe to Hindered Thoughts

8. Sumqayit, Azerbaijan (Sumgait)
Located here in this city are more than 40 factories that are responsible for the production of not only industrial chemicals, but agricultural ones as well. Between 70,000 to 120,000 tons of these harmful emissions are released each year. Mercury-contaminated waste and untreated sewage are still being disposed of irresponsibly which has led to mostly newborn children who suffer from severe defects and other serious health conditions, such as mutations.

7. Vapi, India (va-pee)
Also known as the “City Of Chemicals,” this city is located in the Valsad District and is just near the banks of the Daman Ganga. This is due to the fact that the city is “the largest industrial area in Asia in terms of small-scale industries.” Back in 2008, it was known as the second most polluted place in the world because of its terrible water and air quality. Many of the locals have several complaints about the status of their health due to the pollutants the factories release almost every night.

6. Dzerzhinsk, Russia (Der-zhinsk)
Once named the “most polluted city in the world” by the Guinness Book of World Records, this place used to a very prominent manufacturing site for chemical weapons during the Cold War. Between the years of 1930 and 1998, it’s believed that around 300,000 tons of chemical waste were not properly discarded. This led to the city’s death rate exceeding its birth rate by 260 percent and the now average life expectancies for men and women are 42 and 47-years-old, respectively.

5. Chernobyl, Ukraine
Of course the site of the “worst nuclear disaster in history” would be named one of the world’s most polluted places. The 1986 Chernobyl meltdown set 100 times more radiation the atoms bombs used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki free throughout an uninhabitable 19-mile radius. Other areas such as Russia, Belarus, and other parts of the Ukraine became contaminated. Even after three decades, the local residents are still feeling the effects ranging from scars, birth defects, and respiratory afflictions. In some areas of the lake, exposure of more than 30 minutes can prove to be lethal.

4. Lake Karachay, Russia
The globally focused environmental research organization called Worldwatch Institute has labeled this “the most polluted spot on Earth.” It was back during the late 1940’s that a Soviet Union nuclear weapons factory called Mayak used the lake as a way to dispose of radioactive waste. According to an estimate, Lake Karachay is believed to have 120 million curies of radioactive material. The waste spread to the nearby lake of Techa which provides drinking water to the locals, with 65 percent of the population developing radiation sickness.

3. Linfen, China
This city, located in the Shanxi(Shanxi) province of China, was once known as the world’s most polluted city at one point, but have made small strides in trying to clean up the air quality. It’s been said that citizens have often choked on coal dust during the evenings thanks to it being “the heart of China’s coal industry” that is huge and ever expanding. It also provides the country with two-thirds of its energy. The city of Linfen plans on shifting from coal to gas for central heating so as to cut down on toxic emissions.

2. North Pacific Gyre (jai-er)
Located here is a massive amount of trash and other debris that has accumulated into what is known as the Pacific Trash Vortex. While it’s not twice the size of Texas as some exaggerated rumors have suggested, it is pretty large. The area is located in the North Pacific where it houses plastics, chemical sludge, and microscopic toxins. Due to the Pacific currents constantly rotating, the environmental hazards are pretty much “trapped.” Here’s a picture of the coast of Hawai’i, Hawaii, which is located almost exactly in the center of the North Pacific Gyre.

1. Ahvaz, Iran
It’s here that this place happens to be the most air-polluted city in the entire world. That’s exactly the title that the World Health Organization awarded to Ahvaz back in 2011 and the city has managed to hang on to that title for the past seven years. The reason that the air quality here is so bad is because of the city’s oil industry. That combined with the city’s dust storms, extremely hot summers, and humid temperature makes this place a struggle for the people that live here.

Such an inner happiness I feel for Gemini as you ADJUST to some of the hard-hitting realities the universe threw your way in 2017. Do not fear delays or slowness in this month, because you are preparing to move really quick during the second half and especially fourth quarter of 2018. Don’t force things yet. Don’t push too hard – things will fall into place easily enough, and it feels like your inner resistances need to be fortified rather than pushing things too haphazardly in the outer world. Enjoy yourselves this month!~
