Petition Tag - pollution
Plastic has become an increasing problem in the US over the past decade. Since 2007, Americans have been using 5 pounds of plastic everyday. All of this plastic waste is overwhelming our earth. In fact, 90% of the ocean floor is covered with plastic.
The Great Garbage Patch, (a floating mass of trash in the Pacific Ocean) is 25% plastic - that's 46,000 pounds of debris. There is so much plastic in the ocean that it outweighs the amount of plankton by 6:1.
Plastic pollution needs to be stopped before it does any more damage to the environment.
Traffic and parking is a growing concern for drivers. Drivers are impeded by delays in their routine commutes and spend an uncomfortably long period of time searching for parking spaces at stores and workplaces.
The main cause is solo driving, the act of driving with no accompanying passengers. Solo drivers take up passenger seats and whole parking spaces, amenities that could easily accommodate four or more people at a time.
Also, it is unfair to motorists for one motorcycle to occupy an entire parking space when two can easily fit into one.
When you look at all of the problems facing the world today--environmental exploitation, animal cruelty, hunger, poverty, greed, war, and many more--the fundamental problem can be seen as a fragmented mindset, one which perceives everything else as something separate from the self.
In the words of noted quantum physicist Dr. Amit Goswami:
"The ultimate disease--the root disease--is the illusory thinking that we are separate from the Whole. To heal the disease is to realize that we are Whole, that the separation is but an illusion."
Thus, the goal of this petition is to heal the fragmented mentality through promoting an ethical system based on the most fundamental, universal, unifying belief in the world: that everything emanates from One, Supremely Good and Beautiful Source, and, therefore, everything is essentially One.
This simple, universal belief has resounding ethical implications (e.g. we should treat all things with love, compassion, and respect), healing the world on a fundamental level.
This belief is so universal and so powerful, it is high time it receives its due honor and support.
So, please, take a stand with us and declare: We all are One!
We need to preserve the Loma Alta Creek area and protect it from excessive noise and pollution. Waste Management Inc. (WMI) already has truck services and equipment delivery and offloading at their site next to the creek.
WMI has proposed to expand it to a 24-hour Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) pumping station. The existing operation is already too loud and disturbs the endangered Gnatcatcher habitat and the sensitive Loma Alta Creek area.
It also affects the sleep, health, and quiet enjoyment of residents and negatively impacts home property values, too. With the added, constant operation of massive CNG compressors, the noise will be unbearable!
The hearing is scheduled for March 27th at 5pm at Oceanside City Council, 92054.
Single-use bags, both paper and plastic, represent a huge threat to the environment. This threat is not only related to the sheer volume of them ending up in landfill, but also to the resources needed to produce, transport and (occasionally) recycle them, and the emissions resulting from these processes.
Single-use plastic bags are also well known for their interference in ecosystems and the part they play in flood events, where they clog pipes and drains.
Envirosax presents a fashionable and practical solution to the problem of disposable plastic bags (each Envirosax potentially replaces the use of 6,000 bags during its lifetime), so please make a move in the right direction and help to reduce the impact of plastic bag waste worldwide by buying a reusable bag today!
Plastic bag facts
Approx. 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year. That’s more than 1,200 bags per US resident, per year.
Approx. 100 billion of the 380 billion are plastic shopping bags.
An estimated 12 million barrels of oil is required to make that many plastic bags.
Only 1 to 2% of plastic bags in the USA end up getting recycled.
Thousands of marine animals and more than 1 million birds die each year as a result of plastic pollution.
The United Nations Environment Programme estimates that there are 46,000 pieces of plastic litter floating in every square mile of ocean.
Plastic bags are often mistakenly ingested by animals, clogging their intestines which results in death by starvation. Other animals or birds become entangled in plastic bags and drown or can’t fly as a result.
Even when they photo-degrade in landfill, the plastic from single-use bags never goes away, and toxic particles can enter the food chain when they are ingested by unsuspecting animals.
Greenpeace says that at least 267 marine species are known to have suffered from getting entangled in or ingesting marine debris. Nearly 90% of that debris is plastic.
Americans consume more than 10 billion paper bags per year. Approximately 14 million trees are cut down every year for paper bag production.
Most of the pulp used for paper shopping bags is virgin pulp, as it is considered stronger.
Paper production requires hundreds of thousands of gallons of water as well as toxic chemicals like sulphurous acid, which can lead to acid rain and water pollution.

From recent reports of ‘Enbridge pipeline spills’ and in consideration of the high level and probability of extreme environmental damage resulting from any crude oil pipeline rupture, it would only make good sense to install a continual monitoring system to guard against any ‘rupture’ condition.
Whereby on ‘system failure’ as an audible alarm sounds the product flow is also stopped immediately from upstream of the protected/monitored portion of the pipeline by the closing of the effected sections’ ‘inlet shut-off valve’, which safely stops all product flow into the ‘protected and monitored’ portion of the line.

The Save our Seafront Campaign together with Protect Our Coast and a number of local business owners, political representatives and individuals in the Dublin area have come together to oppose the application and possible granting of a foreshore license to drill for oil and gas just 6 km of the coast of Dublin Bay.
The application has gone to Phil Hogan, Minister for Environment who will make a decision in the coming weeks and months. In excess of 350 submissions were made following a well attended public meeting, most of which were opposing the application and calling for a public enquiry. Shockingly, Minister Hogan has not called a Public Enquiry, nor has an Environmental Impact Assessment been undertaken.
The group are deeply concerned about the potential impact to the environment should there be an oil spill or a gas leak. The bay would be contaminated for decades; marine life would be seriously affected including a number of rare species in this special conservation area. In the case of a gas leak, evacuation of homes along the coast would be necessary. Pollution and mess would be an unavoidable consequence of the extraction process itself.
Aside from the environmental and safety issues, the group is opposed to the potential industrialization of Dublin Bay in one of the most beautiful and historic sections of our coastline.
The lack of Public consultation on the issue and the absence of any real benefit to the Irish people is also a major concern for the group. Ireland’s current licensing agreements allows Providence to write off 100% of costs going back 25 years against an already very low tax rate of 25% in the event of a find.
Specialist staff will be brought in from abroad and any resources found will most likely be shipped abroad for refining meaning there will be no guarantee of any jobs for Irish people.
A WA company, Mantle Mining, is currently undertaking test drilling in Bacchus Marsh as part of a plan to dig a huge, open-cut coal mine, then dry and export the coal to India. They currently have an Exploration License (EL) which includes Bacchus Marsh and 386 km2 of the surrounding area.
In order for the brown coal to be exported, it must first be dewatered, and Mantle are planning to team up with Melbourne-based coal technology company Exergen to carry out this process.
The exploration phase is also being underwritten by WA micro-finance company Cygnet Capital. Bacchus Marsh locals are mobilising against the project, with the Moorabool Environment Group (MEG) leading the local campaign.
More info about the project is available at Coal Watch.
British Columbia Residents are paying $7.5 million in annual loses incurred yearly in diesel generated electricity on Haida Gwaii since this 2006 study was done ($7.5 x 5 years = $37.5 million+
While the 'h2o4us-DWI' system could save us $1.5 -$1.7 million in generating losses per year.
A business case can be made for an aggressive Demand Side Management program for residential buildings in Haida Gwaii, accompanied by an education and information program.
Based on calculations of return on investment and advice from the Working Group, Technical Committee Members and the public, a Demand Side Management program was designed that includes (for approximately $18 million):
1. Energy efficiency audits;
2. Training and capacity building – providing training
to construction tradespersons, on-island retailers
and building inspectors;
3. Education and Awareness – providing energy effi
4. Bulk Purchasing and Product Incentives such as:
a) Lighting Incentives,
b) Appliance Trade-Ins,
c) Hot Water Effi ciency Upgrades,
d) Solar Hot Water System,
e) Programmable Thermostats, and
f) Financial support of existing on-island recycling
program (for appliance replacement).
Reducing dependence on diesel generators was clearly identified by residents as a priority. Local renewable resources were highlighted as the preferable technologies. In particular,
• Small hydro,
• Wind, and
were identified as having significant resource potential, sufficient capacity factor and acceptable costs.
A public meeting is being held at John Bentley School at 7pm on Thursday 3rd November to discuss the Hills planning application to increase the site at Lower Compton so that it becomes three times as large as it is now and thus triple the sheer amount of lorries on the A4 through Calne and the villages.
It is intended that all recyclables from Wiltshire will be taken there for sorting – then taken away to other parts of the country.
Wiltshire Council’s planning policies have already allocated land at Stanton St Quinton to use for a ‘waste transfer facility’ and not at Lower Compton.
10,000 signatures need to be gathered to show local opinion doesn’t want any further HGV movements.
We need your support to attend the meeting and get as many other people there as possible.
Halte à la vulgarité !
Dans de nombreux pays, la loi exige désormais que les fumeurs fument à l'extérieur afin de ne pas polluer ceux qui ne fument pas ! Dont acte!
Mais les nuisances qui nous polluent sont nombreuses ! Parmi elles : la vulgarité!
Elle est partout ! Dans notre environnement professionnel, à l'école, dans la publicité, l'art, les médias, le show-business. La vulgarité est présente dans toutes les strates de nos sociétés !
Elle est tellement ancrée dans notre société qu’elle en devient banale pour l’ensemble des gens. Si banale quelle est tolérée, acceptée, absorbée et même digérée sans que personne ne s’en offusque.
Ses immondices pénètrent notre conscience, nos coeurs et nos âmes. En grandissant dans cette vulgarité, les gens deviennent à leur tour vulgaire aussi ! C’est ainsi que cela se répand !
Halte à la vulgarité. Halte aux propos choquants, provocants, insanes, triviaux, obscènes, et innauspicieux.
Si vous aussi ne supportez plus cette décadence verbale, écrite, gestuelle, vestimentaire ou soit disante artistique, signez cette pétition : HALTE A LA VULGARITE
Nous voulons que cela cesse, nous voulons de la dignité dès à présent, pour le futur de nos enfants, pour le bien de l’humanité !
The Mascotte City Council is hearing a proposal to build a landfill on 250 acres of environmentally sensitive land. The land borders on farms and residential areas.
The proposal has already passed a first reading, and is up for a second vote on October 3rd at the City Council meeting. They are in a rush to pass this to pay for past bad financial decisions, but the numbers don't add up. There are other alternatives to solve the city's financial difficulties, like consolidating services with neighboring towns.
We feel the requested site imposes a severe threat ti the health and welfare of our families, and that approval of such a site and plan is reckless and dangerous action by the commissioners.
Overflowing with rich wildlife, fresh scenic landscapes, and friendly residents, our town is a thing of beauty.
Despite the growing need for new sources of income, this town shouldn't surrender everything it represents in turn for something completely against what we strive for. Although economic recovery is needed in Wawa, a nuclear waste facility certainly should not be the answer.
We believe that no matter what economical impact this plan may contribute to our town, it is does not out way the risks involving storing these highly toxic materials.
We are a town known for its respect towards the environment, and by inquiring into nuclear waste, the municipal council is undermining our values.

Dhaka is one of the most polluted cities in the world - one of the worst form - Water Pollution! The government must take necessary actions immediately to minimize pollution and develop a greener environment! Please support us in this endeavor!
1. 10% of garments factories with international contracts do not have waste treatment plants - which means they should lose their contracts as all international clothing chains require these.
2. More than 50% of factories which actually have waste treatment plants only use them during inspections, as they are very expensive to run.
3. International chains have policies whereby they announce inspections to the factories beforehand - these factories take full advantage of these policies to make sure they get away with fake standards.
4. Local workers for international chains take bribes to help make inspections easier.
* 8,000 grabbers identified so far
* 1,000 acre land grabbed

* 82 percent human excreta from city directly discharged in rivers
* Rivers almost biologically dead
We are calling on the Irish Government to immediately ban the process known as Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking) in Ireland.
Hydraulic fracturing is the method used for the extraction of natural gas (shale gas) from the ground.
This horizontal drilling process involves the pumping of millions of gallons of water, mixed with hundreds of highly toxic chemicals, thousands of feet deep into the ground.
Already in the U.S.A and Australia, pollution caused by this process to land, to air, to surface water and to groundwater has resulted in a terrible health toll and catastrophic environmental damage. Countless cases of death have been reported among wildlife and livestock.
A litany of serious ‘fracking’ related health problems for people in communities in areas where this technology has been used have also come to light.
Because of this damning body of evidence, which includes academic reports (1), moratoria on ‘fracking’ have been put in place in the state of New York, in the state of New Jersey, in the North Rhine Westphalia (Germany), in South Africa. The French Government has recently banned hydraulic fracturing in France.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has only recently begun an investigation into the safety of the process. Their final report is not expected until 2014. At present in Ireland there is no regulation in existence that covers this extraction method, and there has been no research published into the potential consequences of such activity here.
Presently, a number of oil and gas companies who have already been granted exploratory licences, are preparing to use this process to profit from shale gas in the Lough Allen and Clare Basin Regions – an area which includes twelve counties (2).
If hydraulic fracturing is allowed the aftermath may be an irreversible disaster for us and our environment. It may result in the contamination of our water table and of Ireland’s most extensive and important river and lake network.
We will not allow the safety of our water and the health of our children to be put at risk.

The level of Noise pollution in Ahmedabad, Gujarat is beyond all permissible limits set by the Government of India.
This is creating adverse issue on the health of the citizens and hence affecting the overall society.
Chevron may well be cheap and efficient, and they may well be your favourite company, but they have been responsible for one of the biggest causes of death, loss and health problems in the Amazon Rainforest; their own mess!
They have caused so much mess that animals and people, including children, have been forced to drink filthy, toxic water that was once safe. They have poisoned innocent animals that then die slowly and painfully. This also pollutes the people's food sources making them even more at risk.
Children have probably been orphaned and have certainly siblings and family members due to Chevron's mess, which was probably accidental.
!!!NOW CHEVRON HAVE VOWED NEVER TO CLEAN UP THEIR MESS!!!
The mess will exist for longer and even more innocent lives will be lost.
CAFOS (Confined Animal Feeding Operations) concentrate large numbers of animals into small land areas. These operations produce vast amounts of nitrate-rich manure that when spread on surrounding farm fields frequently leach nitrate, phosphate and potassium pollution into the surrounding surface and ground water.
High levels of nitrates in drinking water are associated with blue baby syndrome, a condition that reduces babies' ability to carry sufficient oxygen in the blood, and has been associate with elevated cancer risks. Nitrates also cause excessive algae growth in waterways, suffocating aquatic life.
Scientific evidence indicates that coral is especially vulnerable to mortality caused by sediment deposits and toxins. Coal is a carbonaceous material known to contain toxic sulphur compounds and heavy metals.
Because of the flooding of coal mines from heavy rains, polluted water is being specifically discharged into coastal waterways of Queensland, in some cases illegally, and will deposit onto the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
UIL acquired Connecticut Energy Corp., parent company of Southern Connecticut Gas Co., CTG Resources Inc., parent company of Connecticut Natural Gas Corp. and Berkshire Energy Resources, parent company of the Berkshire Gas Company for 1.296 billion dollars in October 2010 after announcing a stock offering in September 2010 to help fund the purchase. The deal is to be finalized the first quarter of 2011.
English Station is an abandoned power plant that was built from 1924 to 1929 in Fair Haven, CT on the Mill River, and operated until 1992, first as a coal burning facility and then converted to burn residual fuel oil, the dirtiest oil available. Through various maneuvers, UI has avoided cleaning up the site and it is now designated as a Brownfield.
“New Haven's Dirtiest Fight Yet”
This is the first in a series of articles about the state of the city's environment and the toxic sites located within its borders. Ct Business Journal 2002
”…With deregulation on the horizon in 1998, UI was required to divest itself of all interests in energy generation and all its generating plants were sold within months - except for English Station, one of the dirtiest plants in the U.S., according to Michael Mitchell, president of CCEJ….
…Despite three proposals from buyers who wanted to convert the site to “renewable energy ventures,” UI transferred ownership of English Station to the fledgling Quinnipiac Energy (QE) whose principals were proposing to use #6 fuel oil. The only thing filthier than #6 oil to burn is coal. QE was established in 1999 as a Delaware limited liability company (LLC) for the sole purpose of acquiring English Station. Its original principals were Mark Mininberg, Ralph DeGeeter and Joseph Camean. After QE's proposal was approved by the Department of Public Utilities Control (DPUC), QE reformed, dropping Joseph Camean and adding Scott DeGeeter and Jeffrey Mannis.
According to New Haven's EJN, Mark Mininberg, who owns the controlling interest in QE, is an environmental attorney who has represented clients in the state who were being sued for waste disposal violations. One of the defendants he sued is John “Jack” Betkoski III, a commissioner on the Connecticut DPUC whose term expires June 30, 2005, according to CCEJ officials.
New Haven has 33 designated brownfield sites, 13 of which are in Fair Haven.
environmental lawyer Mark Mininberg....He was paid $4.25 million by UI to take English Station off its hands; full conversion to natural gas could require $100 million to as much as $200 million.”
Blumenthal said UI’s obligation to clean up the mess at English Station didn’t stop when they sold it.
“UI has an obligation to deal with English Station. They have at least a moral obligation and we may assert a legal obligation,” he said.
23. Save Kendall Bay
Kendall Bay is a small bay on Sydney Harbour about 8km west of the City. It is one of the last unused bays in Sydney Harbour. It adjoins the residential development of Breakfast Point, once the AGL Mortlake Gasworks. Kendall Bay was highly polluted by AGL as it formerly housed a wharf for the unloading of coal boats and was the point of discharge of waste from the gasworks.
An area extending from the entire shoreline of Breakfast Point out 200m into Kendall Bay is highly polluted. The EPA issued Remediation Order No 2032 in June 2007 over this area declaring that “The concentration of total polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s which are classified as human carcinogens) and heavy metals are significantly elevated above ANZECC 2000 guidelines; It is likely that further development of the area would increase the risk of harm.”
Breakfast Point Pty Ltd (the developer of Breakfast Point) proposes covering the pollution within part only of the Remediation Order area with a geotextile mat and a layer of rock as a Sediment Protection System (SPS). They then propose constructing a 172 public berth marina over the SPS. Of the remainder of the area covered by the Order only 3 small sections will be remediated under a plan currently being proposed by Jemena (AGL).
The Environmental Impacts have been understated because the proposed SPS will not address the requirements of the Remediation Order. The proposed SPS has never been used under a marina in a contaminated bay (which in this case is particularly shallow) anywhere that we can find worldwide.
The Operational Environmental Management Plan, the Construction Management Plan and The Operational Environmental Management Plan proposed in the application do not address all the potential impacts on the disturbance of contaminated marine sediments. The proposed measures that would be implemented to avoid, minimise, mitigate, offset, manage, and/or monitor the impacts of the project are inadequate and sometimes invalid.
In its present state Kendall Bay is an unencumbered “public asset” but if a commercial marina is constructed on it a significant portion of the bay will be in private hands in contravention of the aims of the Regional Environment Plan. It is certain that the proposed SPS will fail and pollution will be disturbed and distributed by the marina activities.
LEAVE KENDALL BAY ALONE.
Lake Ontario is one of the five interconnected Great Lakes, providing most of the drinking water for Canadians, and Americans. Despite its importance, being one of the few bodies of fresh water readily available, it is being misused and severely polluted.
Many are under the misapprehension that the sewage system is well monitored and that Lake Ontario is being used at a healthy and consistent rate. On the contrary, the water systems being utilized are not extremely reliable and are dumping a lot of waste and chemicals into the body of water. In fact, after the industrial revolution, Lake Ontario has gotten filthier and filthier that in the 21st Century, the change can actually be observed by the naked eye.
Lately, people have been fishing out garbage bags as well as toxic chemicals, the CBC even questioning whether or not Lake Ontario was always this polluted. If and increase in pollution continues, or remains at the current level, Lake Ontario will soon become unusable.
The blatant misuse by Politicians of the use of their Government Credit Cards, and Vehicles.
In response to the signing and intention to start Offshore Oil Exploration and Harvesting in Belize, the Government has chosen to embark on large scale agreements with international Oil Companies to start Offshore Exploration off the Coast of Belize.
Instead of steering toward more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives, they are advocating tapping into our strategic natural resources and protective areas, a measure that not only endangers the life forms around said areas but steals the future from our children and provides only a very short term benefit for our country and the companies that will be harvesting the oil.
The Government demeans our system with claims of progress and practicing political maneuvers that work behind closed doors instead of cooperating with the Conservation groups in Belize and abroad.

The Maratholakas landfill on Greece’s ancient and beautiful mountain of Taygetos has been operating illegally since 2008. Following a decree from the European Union, the Town Council of Kalamata agreed to its closing on December 31, 2008. However, the Municipality of Kalamata has yet to enforce this order. The local citizens of Taygetos took legal action against the Municipality and won two judgments, imposing a 5,900 Euro per day fine on the municipality.
Unfortunately, the dump is still in operation resulting in the annual accumulating of 50,000 tons of unregulated and potentially toxic, waste. The landfill poses a severe fire hazard and threatens the aquifers that supply water to all of Kalamata. The stench of this dump carries for miles, poluting the environment along the road to the ancient city of Sparta.
Η χωματερή Μαραθόλακας στον Ταϋγετο λειτουργεί παράνομα από το 2005, έτος λήξεως της άδειας λειτουργίας της. Με εντολή της Ευρωπαικής Ένωσης το Δ.Σ. της Καλαμάτας αποφάσισε να την κλείσει στις 31.12.2008. Επειδή αυτό δεν επετεύχθη πολλοί κάτοικοι προσέφυγαν σε δικαστικό αγώνα τον οποίο κέρδισαν 2 φορές. Η ποινή που επέβαλε στο Δήμο Καλαμάτας το Δικαστήριο, και ισχύει απο την 29.4.2010, είναι 5.900 ευρώ την ημέρα.
Δυστυχώς η χωματερή του Μαραθόλακα εξακολουθεί να λειτουργεί με κίνδυνο να προκληθεί φωτιά και να ξαναζήσουμε τους εφιάλτες του 1998 και 2007. Επίσης, υπάρχει κίνδυνος να μολυνθεί ο υπόγειος υδροφόρος ορίζοντας από τον οποίο υδρεύεται η Καλαμάτα.
Σε μία εποχή που η Ελλάδα έχει ανάγκη τον εναλλακτικό τουρισμό στην συγκεκριμένη περιοχή επιβάλλεται να κλείσει αμέσως η χωματερή.
The "limit" of finite natural resources per capita as population increases without bounds is zero. Simply put, the more there are of us, the less there is for each of us. How much farther down that road should we go? It is estimated that without action the U.S. population will balloon to 458 million by mid-century and more than 600 million by the end of this century with no end in sight.
Americans produce 20 metric tons of pollutants per capita annually. At that rate, if we add 300 million more people by the end of this century, we will be producing another 6 billion tons of pollutants every year. Even if by some technological miracle we are able to reduce our per capita output by half to that of Mexico, we will have made no progress on reducing the present unacceptable total level of output as our population doubles.
Thirsty cities are buying up water rights to serve the needs of their burgeoning populations leaving the land needed to grow the food needed to feed those additional people unproductive for lack of water.
Population growth in America is almost soley the result of legal immigrants, illegal aliens, their higher fertility rates, and their progeny. The fertility rate of American women is about 2.1, very close to the replacement level.
We need tax and immigration policies that will stabilize our population. Cap and trade can be applied to family size as well as pollution. If a woman wishes to have more than two children, she must purchase credits from those who wish to have fewer. Legal immigration must be reduced to the historical level of the 1970s, about 250,000 per year in all categories including chain immigrations.
Millions of trees are destroyed every year to provide Yellow Pages with ridiculous claims of huge marketing distribution.
Please sign the petition here if you wish to save a few of these trees by only allowing Yellow Pages to be delivered to those places that want them. (My home and workplace don't use them so don't want them delivered - and meantime, we would like the ones we have picked-up and recycled).
Feel free to leave a comment as well. And hey! I'm just an ordinary bloke who drives a car pumping-out pollution, has a Pepsi now and then and loves the Kangaroos in the AFL footy. I do however think that this might help the World in some small and easy way that doesn't take too much effort.
Un projet de centrale électrique au gaz est actuellement en discussion pour une implantation à Hambach par Direct Energie. Ce projet, s'il devait voir le jour, aurait des conséquences sur l'aspect écologique, sanitaire et sur l'habitat des environs du site et sur l'ensemble de la région déjà hyperpolluée.(+ de 30% de malades en plus) LORRAINE, ALSACE, SAARLAND
Nous nous battons jusqu'au bout contre l'implantation de cette centrale hyper-polluante, contre cettte centrale inutile, contre cette centrale qui permettrait de remplir les poches de Direct Energie au détriment de la santé des personnes habitant cette Grande Région.
