Environmental Disasters

For this quiz, I did not include natural environmental disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes, but only those environmental disasters that are anthropogenic or caused by man as a result of ignorance, negligence, indifference, greed and/or downright stupidity.

As I research this particular topic, it seems to me that the greatest enemy of the environment is man himself, as we are not only contributing to the many sufferings of our fellow man but also to the destruction of the environment through war, terrorism, irresponsible use of technology and over exploitation of resources.

Hope some of the disasters featured in this quiz will open our eyes to the utmost need for good housekeeping of the only home we will ever have, the Earth.
