The Netherlands's Environmental Issues

The economic growth of The Netherlands and the growing population resulted to suffering of their environment. In 1996, The Netherlands has the highest levels recorded for emitting industrial carbon dioxide. As the population rises and industries growing, The Netherlands needs more space for waste disposal. And another problem of The Netherlands is water pollution. Records of industrial and agricultural waste are found on the rivers of the country.The government of the country rapidly responded to the environmental issues. They established regulations and laws to protect the environment. And as a result the pollution is now reduced. And as of 2001 around 5 percent of the Netherlands total area is now protected. Till now they are still fighting with pollution and they will surely succeed in this.
