You might groan when you see someone trash their pop can when the bottle recycling sits right beside the waste can, but there are much worse problems in the world. Every little bit counts, and since recycling programs have started, less waste has been sent to landfills. Besides what goes on the ground and in the landfills, there is also waste that makes it into the air. The World Health Organization limits how much pollution each country is allowed to produce, and usually clouds of pollution can be seen collecting above the worst culprits. Although most of these countries are developing, destroying the ecology can be easily prevented with good government policies, and initiative by the citizens to keep their countries clean. Have you ever been impressed by a view of the stars when you drive out to the countryside? Part of this is because of less air and light pollution in these areas. Consider yourself lucky to even see the sky, because in many places you cannot. Here is a list of the worst environmental culprits due to their pollution, air quality, recycling and waste control policies, and water quality. Some may surprise you!

8 Bangladesh:

7 Kuwait:

6 Nigeria:

5 Iran:

4 India:

3 Mexico:

2 South Korea:

1 Canada:

Although Canada boasts good air quality, is not densely populated, has good water quality, and has plenty of biodiversity, Canada is a global bad-guy in terms of policy. Canada is the only developed country in the world whose CDI (Commitment to Development Index) declined in the environmental category. Canada is a fossil fuel rich country, and uses mostly fossil fuels to power electrical plants. Canada recently withdrew from the Kyoto Protocol, as one of the only countries ever to completely withdraw. Tsk tsk Canada.
