The beginning of the Black Death started in 1347, and swept through Europe. The disease was called the Black Death because of the darkened color of the victims' faces after they died.
The plague began in Asia and spread along busy trade routes. Trading ships carried the disease west to the Mediterranean. From the Mediterranean ports, the disease spread throughout most of Europe. Rats on the ships carried the disease. Fleas from the rats spread the disease to people. Once people became infected, the disease could be spread from person to person. No one knows the exact number of plague deaths in Europe. Some guess that about 25 million people died in Europe from 1347 to 1351. This was about one third of the entire population.
The Black Death greatly affected Europe. Relations between the upper classes and lower classes changed. It was perhaps the greatest tragedy in all of European history.

Pollution is the emission of volatile organic chemicals, such as greenhouse gases, from recycled plastics. Recycling includes melting old polymers and reshaping them into desired shapes and sizes. Melting releases volatile carbon fumes into the air, which mix with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, which is then discharged into the air, increasing its concentration. Excess carbon depletes the ozone layer, causing the earth's atmosphere to heat up. The melting of arctic ice raises sea levels and changes sea waves. Ocean pollution is anticipated to have health consequences on creatures that rely on the water for food and habitat.
