This is the list of the five most dangerous roads in the world as per my recent online research. 
These roads are indeed an almost-no-go-area for many drivers and travdellers. in as much as they may stand as sites of tourism and site seeeing, it is a nah nah dare for me, I can't try such roads on wheels.

5. The Karakoram Highway, between China and Pakistan

Karakoram Highway, between China and Pakistan
Karakoram Highway, between China and Pakistan.
Named the “Friendship Highway” by the governments who built it. The Karakoram Highway is the highest paved international road in the world. It connects China and Pakistan across the Karakoram mountain range, through the Khunjerab Pass, at an elevation of 4,693 meters. It’s prone to landslides and floods and to make matters worse, the road is unpaved in Pakistan. But it is still a tourist attraction, passing through some spectacular gorges along the old Silk Road. Nearly 900 workers died while constructing the road. What is often referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world.”

4. James Dalton Highway, Alaska

James Dalton Highway, Alaska
James Dalton Highway, Alaska (
The Dalton Highway is a 667 km road in Alaska. It begins at the Elliott Highway, north of Fairbanks, and ends at Deadhorse near the Arctic Ocean and the Prudhoe Bay oil fields. Although appearing serene at first glance, is filled with potholes, small flying rocks carried by fast winds, and worst of all it runs through the middle of nowhere. What makes this one of the most dangerous roads, is its 386 km stretch with no gas stations, restaurants, hotels, or any other basic services.

3. Jalalabad–Kabul Road, Afghanistan

Jalalabad–Kabul Road, Afghanistan
Jalalabad–Kabul Road, Afghanistan.
Many roads have been dubbed “most dangerous,” but the 65-kilometer stretch of highway from Jalalabad to Kabul has more claim than most, snaking through Taliban territory. But it’s not the threat of insurgency that makes Highway so dangerous. It’s a combination of the narrow, winding lanes that climb up to 600 meters through the Kabul gorge and the reckless Afghan drivers trying to overtake the heavily-burdened haulage trucks.

2. North Yungas Road, Bolivia

The North Yungas Highway in Bolivia
The North Yungas Highway in Bolivia.
Also known as the “Road of Death” in the Yungas region of Bolivia. It is legendary for its extreme danger and the Inter-American Development Bank christened it as the “world’s most dangerous road”. One estimate is that 200 to 300 travelers are killed yearly along the road. The road includes cross markings on many of the spots where vehicles have fallen. It is a regular occurrence for buses and trucks to go tumbling to the valley below, especially when they try passing each other.

1. Highway 1 in Florida

List Of Projects That Require EIA

This a prepared list of projects that require EIA before execution and it is instituted under law taht whoever wants to carry out any of these project must do an EIA and present a certificate of completion and approval. Environment lovers don't joke with the health of the environment, EnvironmentGo! loves the Evironment more.

List Of Projects That Require EIA

The need to carry out an EIA comes from European EIA Directive. The directive is given effect though different legislation.

The directive divides projects into 2 different types: Annex I projects and Annex II projects.

Annex I projects
Annex I projects always require an EIA. These include large scale projects with obvious environmental effects, such as:

  • crude oil refineries
  • nuclear generating stations and other nuclear reactors
  • larger scale quarries and open-cast mines.

Annex II projects
Annex II projects will only require EIA if it's decided that the project is likely to have 'significant' environmental effects. There will usually be a threshold to determine if a case by case screening decision is required.

Examples of Annex II projects include:

  • industrial estate development projects (threshold - the area of the development exceeds 0.5 hectare)
  • an electric line installed above ground (threshold - with a voltage of 132 kilovolts or more).

Five Scary Environmental Problem And Solutions You Need To Know

Indeed the world in general is depreciating in terms of environmental safety and if nothing is done to rescue this situation then we may put an end to the world by ourselves and not wait for rapture to do so.
These are the five biggest environmental problems of our time and their possible solutions. Lets hook here and work out the needed change.

Environmental Problem And Their Solutions

1. Air pollution and climate change.
Problem: Overloading of the atmosphere and of ocean waters with carbon. Atmospheric CO2 absorbs and re-emits infrared-wavelength radiation, leading to warmer air, soils, and ocean surface waters - which is good: The planet would be frozen solid without this.

Unfortunately, there's now too much carbon in the air. Burning of fossil fuels, deforestation for agriculture, and industrial activities have pushed up atmospheric CO2 concentrations from 280 parts per million (ppm) 200 years ago, to about 400 ppm today. That's an unprecedented rise, in both size and speed and this results to climate disruption.

Solutions: Replace fossil fuels with renewable energy. Reforestation. Reduce emissions from agriculture. Change industrial processes.

The good news is that clean energy is abundant - it just needs to be harvested. Many say a 100 percent renewable-energy future is feasible with existing technology now.

2. Deforestation.

Problem: Species-rich wild forests are being destroyed, especially in the tropics, often to make way for cattle ranching, soybean or palm oil plantations, or other agricultural monocultures.

Solutions: Conserve of what's left of natural forests, and restore degraded areas by replanting with native tree species. This requires strong governance - but many tropical countries are still developing, with increasing populations, uneven rule-of-law, and widespread cronyism and bribery when it comes to allocating land use.

3. Species extinction.

Problem: On land, wild animals are being hunted to extinction for bushmeat, ivory, or "medicinal" products. At sea, huge industrial fishing boats equipped with bottom-trawling or purse-seine nets clean out entire fish populations. The loss and destruction of habitat are also major factors contributing to a wave of extinction.

Solutions: Concerted efforts need to be made to prevent further loss of biodiversity. Protecting and restoring habitats is one side of this - protecting against poaching and wildlife trade is another. This should be done in partnership with locals, so that wildlife conservation is in their social and economic interest.

4. Soil degradation.

Problem: Overgrazing, monoculture planting, erosion, soil compaction, overexposure to pollutants, land-use conversion - there's a long list of ways that soils are being damaged. About 12 million hectares of farmland a year get seriously degraded, according to UN estimates.

Solutions: A wide range of soil conservation and restoration techniques exist, from no-till agriculture to crop rotation to water-retention through terrace-building. Given that food security depends on keeping soils in good condition, we're likely master this challenge in the long run. Whether this will be done in a way equitable to all people around the globe, remains an open question.

5. Overpopulation.

Problem: Human population continues to grow rapidly worldwide. Humanity entered the 20th century with 1.6 billion people; right now, we're about 7.5 billion. Estimates put us at nearly 10 billion by 2050. Growing global populations, combined with growing affluence, is putting ever greater pressure on essential natural resources, like water. Most of the growth is happening on the African continent, and in southern and eastern Asia.

Solutions: Experience has shown that when women are empowered to control their own reproduction, and gain access to education and basic social services, the average number of births per woman drops precipitously.
Done right, networked aid systems could bring women out of extreme poverty, even in countries where state-level governance remains abysmal.

In what ever capacity you can work to achieve these solutions to our current environmental problem, please do.

List Of Environmental Agencies In Nigeria

Hi environment lovers in Nigeria, have you ever thought about knowing the environmental agencies in Nigeria and how they can be of use to you? Here, this is the list of environmental agencies in Nigeria that you should take note of.

List Of Environmental Agencies In Nigeria

List Of Environmental Agencies In Nigeria

Federal Environmental Protection Agency (FEPA)
Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN)
National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA)
National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA)
National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA)

The environmental agencies plays significant roles in relation to environmental protection, workplace safety and public health. As an environmentalist you expected to work with these agencies in giving relevant information as regards the safety of the environment in general.

Usually my articles don't use to be too long but in a case where I can't help it, we settle for the best no matter how long. I want to go in details to talk about these environmental agencies in Nigeria for broader understanding of their relevance.

Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN)
Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN) was established as Federal Department of Forestry Research in 1954. The Institute's Decree 35 of 1973 and order establishing Research Institute of 1977 changed the status of the Department to an institute being supervised by the Federal Ministry of Environment,but the only Research Institute of the Ministry. Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria has 7 specialized research departments (each having various specialized sections),three support departments, eleven outstations spread across all ecologicalzones of the country, three Centers and four ND/HND awarding colleges.

FRIN's mission is to ensure sustainable forest resource management and production, food production/security,forest-based industrial raw material provision, utilization, Bio-diversity conservation, self-employment opportunities and poverty alleviation.

National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA)
The National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) was established by the National Biosafety Management Agency Act 2015, to provide regulatory framework to adequately safe guard human health and the environment from potential adverse effects of modern biotechnology and genetically modified organisms, while harnessing the potentials of modern biotechnology and its derivatives, for the benefit of Nigerians. The Act came into force in April 2015, with the appointment of a Director General and Chief Executive Officer. The UN international agreement known as Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety which Nigeria signed is an environment protocol and it requires members to domesticate the agreement through a law. The Biosafety Act is therefore to domesticate the Protocol and address our National Biosafety requirements.

National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) mission is to promote the basic tenets of biosafety as enunciated in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety and enforce Nigeria National Biosafety Management Agency Act 2015 to ensure the safe application and use of products of modern biotechnology.

Prior to the dumping of toxic waste in Koko village, in Delta State, in 1987, Nigeria was ill-equipped to manage serious environmental crisis, as there were no institutional arrangements or mechanisms for environmental protection and enforcement of environmental laws and regulations in the country.

Arising from the Koko toxic waste episode, the Federal Government promulgated the Harmful Waste Decree 42 of 1988, which facilitated the establishment of the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (FEPA) through Decree 58 of 1988 and 59 (amended) of 1992.

FEPA was then charged with the overall responsibility for environmental management and protection. It is on record that by the establishment of FEPA, Nigeria became the first African country to establish a national institutional mechanism for environmental protection.

You may want to know how NESREA came about and below you have it.
In the wisdom of the Government, FEPA and other relevant Departments in other Ministries were merged to form the Federal Ministry of Environment in 1999, but without an appropriate enabling law on enforcement issues. This situation created a vacuum in the effective enforcement of environmental laws, standards and regulations in the country.

To address this lapse, the Federal Government in line with section 20 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, established the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA), a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Environment. By the NESREA establishment Act 2007, the Federal Environmental Protection Agency Act Cap F 10 LFN 2004 has been repealed.

NESREA's Mission is to inspire personal and collective responsibility in building an environmentally conscious society for the achievement of sustainable development in Nigeria.

National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA)
NOSDRA was established by the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Act of 2006. It was established with responsibility for preparedness, detection, and response to oil spillages in Nigeria. Its Head office is at 5th floor NAIC House plot 590, zone AO, Central Business District, Abuja. With its zonal offices in Lagos, Akure, Porth-court, Delta, Kaduna, Akwa-Ibom and Bayelsa.

NOSDRA's Mission is to restore and preserve our environment by ensuring best Oil field, storage and transmisiion practices in exploration, production and use of oil in the quest to achieve sustainable development in Nigeria The Federal Government established the National Oil Spill Detection And Response Agency (NOSDRA) as an institutional framework to implement the National Oil Spill Contingency Plan.

As an environmentalist, you can work in any of these places.

Hope to write again soon, see you.

Effects Of Poor Sanitation On The Environment

You want to know about the effects of poor sanitation on the environment ? That way the armpit smells when you dodge taking your birth, that's the effect of poor body hygiene or poor body management so relate it same way to the environment.

When we fail to sanitize the environment properly, it fires back and we suffer the consequences.

How does sanitation affect the environment ? Inadequate sanitation, particularly in the context of urbanization, allows for sewage or waste to flow directly into streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands, affecting coastal and marine ecosystems, fouling the environment and exposing millions of children to disease, including you.

You are not save by pumping water from a borehole to drink, that water too can get contaminated when we neglect the environment so never act like you don't care!

The absence of adequate sanitation has a serious impact on health and social development, especially for children. This contamination is a major cause of diarrhoea, the second biggest killer of children in developing countries, and leads to other major diseases such as cholera, schistosomiasis, and trachoma.
Does it scare you to here that? Uh, I see. Let it scare you too to pollute the environment, let the change begin with you, start from your little end and watch it spread to the whole world.

Last time I talked about the effect of erosion on the environment and tagged it as natural disaster, it would be bad suffering natural disasters and man-made disasters too by polluting the environment. From your corner, have a rethink.

For those who still passes feces careless in bushes and pathways, you should know that Human excreta have been implicated in the transmission of many infectious diseases including cholera, typhoid, infectious hepatitis, polio, cryptosporidiosis, and ascariasis.
If you must defecate elsewhere rather than a toilet, then dig a hole for your partner and pass it into the hole! ...and make sure you cover it properly.

Effects Of Poor Sanitation On The Environment are just uncountable, just any bad effect of poor environmental sanitation you can think of. Take a look at my own list below.

Effects Of Poor Sanitation On The Environment

  1. Higher disease rate
  2. Higher mortality rate
  3. unavailability of adequate environment for life
I always pledge to keep it short so I don't get you bored, permit me to call it a day here. Will be here with you again tomorrow, let make a day to day thing. It would be best you join our readerbase and I will always come to you personally with my new articles for free.

What Is Environment Sanitation ? See All You Should Know

What Is Environment Sanitation ? what do you really see as Environment Sanitation ? keeping the environment neat or managing waste properly or some other thing? Hang on as I take you deeper on what Environment Sanitation really means.

What Is Environment Sanitation ? See All You Should Know

According to, Environmental sanitation means the art and science of applying sanitary, biological and physical science principles and knowledge to improve and control the environment and factors therein for the protection of the health and welfare of the public.

That seems to be too much grammar right? I bet you don't like complex definitions of therms, I don't prefer them either. Why not we check out another definition before we go on?

According to environmental sanitation is the act and process of keeping the surrounding clean and safe for human habitation.

I guess that's is a more better definition in therms of simplicity, very short and easy to remember, if not for anything, maybe for examination sake.

But then it is best to have the knowledge of something than to copy lines and quote to pass interviews and exams. If you are truly passionate about the environment you should be fascinated with environmental related studies because it is only in that way that you can help keep the environment save and sustainable.
Lets see some components of environmental sanitation that is necessary to make mention of here.


  1. clean and safe water supply
  2. clean and safe ambient air and vebtilation
  3. efficient and safe waste disposal
  4. protection of food from contaminants
  5. adequate housing in clean and safe surroundings
  6. Proper management of animal reservoirs
In my own words, environmental sanitation involves the sanitary of the environment and should not only be an activity to be carried out but a culture that should be learned and practiced religiously, if we keep the environment neat and save then we too are by far save, so why shouldn't we care?

You can check out environmental pollution here to see the need for sanitation.

You feel like reading more? You can check out my post on effects of environmental pollution.

I care, I hope you too do. Caring about the environment surely entices...
My articles always short you know, watch out, I soon flow again.

What Is Environmental Pollution ? See All You Need To Know

What Is Environmental Pollution ?

Environmental pollution is generally know as the introduction of harmful materials into the environment but this definition is shallow and not concise.

If you want to answer the question " what is environmental pollution " you have to take note and include these three major points in environmental pollution below.
  1.  Introduction of harmful material into the environment
  2.  Causation of harm to human, plant or animal live.
  3.  Degradation or damage to the environment.
The above points are a must-add in defining environmental pollution, skipping any of the points may not define environmental pollution properly.
With the listed points above, you can define environmental pollution in your own words and it would be better you craft your own definition so you can pjut yourself in a situation that would let you feel the harm done to the environment by pollution and polluters.

These pollutants introduced into the environment are mostly from human activities so environmental pollution can also be said to be harm done onto humans by humans.

Environmental Pollution is the introduction of toxic harmful materials into the environment which may cause harm to human health, plant or animal life or result to a significant damage on the environment(Water, Land, Air).

Environmental pollution has been on the increase for lack of awareness and interest on environmental related issues as people put more interest in developing modern facilities and erecting structure while ignoring the environmental effects of their activities.
To foster environmental awareness and care, universities have introduced environmental related courses.

If you are an environmental lover, you can take a look at some scholarship programs available in environmental related courses.

Effect Of Erosion On The Environment

Lets look at the different effect of erosion on the environment and review their impacts on the environment.

At first, you have to know that there are different kinds of erosion and each has a different effect on the environment but we are going to list them one after the other.
First lets list the three main types of erosion;



These erosion types can be further divided especially in the case of water erosion. In water erosion we get Sheet Erosion, Splash Erosion, Gully Erosion and Rill Erosion.

Effect Of Erosion On The Environment

Effect Of Wind Erosion On The Environment - Wind erosion is the carrying away of top soil by wind, the rate at which the soil is carried away depends on the intensity of the wind. Wind erosion brings about its own Effect Of Erosion On The Environment and its severity is determined by the intensity and frequency of the wind.

Effect Of Water Erosion On The Environment - Water erosion is the washing away of top soil by water and this has different effects on the environment depending on the type of water erosion that is involved.

Under water Erosion, we have;
Sheet erosion - sheet erosion is the washing away of the thing layer of soil surface over a large area of land. The effect of sheet erosion on the environment is majorly that it washes away soil nutrients.
Rill Erosion - rill erosion creates small channels in a slope from which water flows down to a bigger channel, it also washes away the surface of the soil but do not cover a large area as sheet does yet digs dipper into the soil than sheet erosion thereby creating its own  Effect Of Erosion On The Environment and land surface.
Splash Erosion - this involves the splashing away of soil particles by rain drops.
Gully Erosion - this is the most dangerous of all erosion types, it digs many fts down into the soil with time and destroys a lot of natural and artificial resources on its way. It is the erosion type that draws most attention when ever it is about to take place or where ever it is located.
Gully erosion destroys a large area of land along its path.
Brown Mountain Pathway
example of path created by gully erosion

 Effect Of Gravity Erosion On The Environment - Gravity erosion is caused by the downward movement of rocks and some other hard materials due to the effect of gravity.

Having listed a number of effects of Gravity on the environment, lets anticipate another post. You air your view through the comment box below.

Online Environmental Engineering Courses and Bachelors Degree Programs With Certificate

It has been our idea to prompt scholars on environmental engineering online courses and how to participate on any of them together with the environmental engineering courses needed to support the course.

Finding environmental engineering courses online has never been easy as there are very few of them online, but there are many schools abroad and local which handle environmental engineering courses offline and they are pretty okay.

The University of North Dakota has an online graduate certificate program in environmental engineering that consists of nine credits and takes one year to complete. Students listen to recorded lectures as they learn how various engineering disciplines can be used to solve environmental issues. Applicants will need a bachelor's degree in a related engineering field or another area of study that includes intensive math and chemistry coursework.

Keplan University also offers bachelor degree (BS) certificate in Environmental Policy and Management.

At the moment we are yet to get anymore functional functional online environmental engineering courses. We will update this page when we do.

Environmental Science And Pollution Research Abbreviation

Environmental science and pollution research abbreviation is not a thing to be confused with environmental science and pollution abbreviation. It is good you notice the "research" attached to the former, it makes a much difference from the later.

Environmental Science And Pollution Research Abbreviation
Firsly, it would be important to note that Environmental Science and Pollution Research serves the international community in all areas of Environmental Science and related subjects with emphasis on chemical compounds.

From the name, Environmental science and pollution research abbreviation can easily be derived as "ESPR" and it is as simple as that.

Environmental science and pollution research teams are environmental teams that focus pollution control as a part of environmental science to help in keeping the earth safer for mankind.

What Is The Meaning Of Environment, All You Need To Know

Environment is actually what we care for here, it is not just a vital part of human existence but it is the possibility of human existence.
Wanting to know what is the meaning of environment is wanting to know what is the platform of human existence; humans exist in the environment.

What Is The Meaning Of Environment, All You Need To Know

Environment is not just the physical surroundings of humans but also the conditions of the surroundings.
Hotness or coldness is a condition and there exists hot and cold environments when referring to the environment in terms of its conditions.

"Generally, environment is the physical surroundings and conditions which an organism interacts with and feels its effects."

All things that man interacts with are components of his environment, so talking about the environment is talking about everything in existence, both biotic and abiotic including empty space and air.

To define the environment in general, it is best to understand its concept first; understanding the concept of the environment gives one the ability to define the environment in his or her own terms and still arrive at the same conclusion with others.

It is easier to define environment in particular than to define it in general.
You can define a school environment, company environment, hospital environment and all particular environment easier compared to trying to define the general environment.

Can you try defining the environment for those Wanting to know what is the meaning of environment in your own words? We will love to read your own definitions in the comment box bellow.

Waste To Energy Process and Importance

Have you ever thought about converting wastes to energy ? Have you though about creating any waste-to-energy facility or technique ? Have you imagined how a waste-to-energy plant or technology will reduce the amount of waste being deposited into the environment on a daily basis ? 
If you have imagined or thought of any of these, then you are welcome to read and share your idea with us here, if you have not, then you are welcome read on that here.

Waste to energy is the generation of energy in the form of heat or electricity from waste materials or dumps.


There are different waste to energy technologies but we will be talking about just thermal and non-thermal waste to energy technology here.

1) THERMAL TECHNOLOGY -waste to energy technology :

Waste treatment that are conducted involving high temperatures are called Thermal treatment,
the heat generated from this Thermal Treatment can be used to generate energy.

The following are examples of Thermal Technology;

a) Depolymerization
b) Gasification
c) Pyrolysis
d) Plasma arc Gasification


Depolymerization uses thermal decomposition wherein the presence of water, organic acids are heated at high temperatures. This process is also known as HYDROUS PYROLYSIS ( the process without the use of oxygen)
This process usually takes plastics and biomass as their primary ingredients and is usually conducted at very high temperatures.


It is another developing process employed in waste to energy generation. It converts carbonaceous substances to carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and some amounts of hydrogen.
This process like incineration requires high temperatures to obtain results, the difference is that combustion does not occur in gasification.
Steam and/or oxygen is also used in this process where usually fossil fuels or organic substances are used.
The gas that is produced from the waste procedure is called SYNTHESIS GAS, or SYNGAS for short, and is considered as a good means of alternate energy.
SYNGAS is used for heat and electricity production.


This is another waste to energy process used majorly in industrial processes. Pyrolysis is just like HYDROUS PYROLYSIS without the use of oxygen. Pyrolysis employs agricultural waste or organic waste from industries.

Plasma arc Gasification:

As the name implies uses plasma technologies to obtain syngas. A plasma torch is used to ionize gas and there after obtain syngas. This process generates electricity while compressing the waste.

2) NON THERMAL TECHNOLOGIES -waste to energy technology

a) Anaerobic digestion
b) Mechanical biological treatment.

Anaerobic digestion:

This is a slow process, here in, micro organisms are used to breakdown the biodegradable content. No oxygen is present during the procedure.
It is used both domestically and even commercially to tap the release of energy during the process and use it.
Anaerobic waste to energy technology is seen as a good way to reduce the green house gases from the atmosphere and also as a working replacement for fossil fuels.
The process works as a boom for developing countries for creating low energies for cooking and lighting in homes.
Biogas is used to run a gas engine and energy is created for small scale use.

Mechanical biological treatment:

This process uses domestic waste as well as industrial and commercial waste to generate products.
Waste-to-energy is an emerging innovative technology aimed at sustenance of the environment, with minimum damage to the ecosystem. With these technologies developing by day and their acceptance, increasing household and industrial setups.
Worldwide, waste to energy is seen as a development tool for emerging countries.
Waste to energy or energy from waste is a concious attempt to equalize the patterns of our planet and save our ecological cycles.
The energy generations from these technologies are small scale right now and their employment for domestic and industrial use is sparse.
However, they are seen as the energy solutions for tomorrow that are set to affect the world immensely.
