There could be many fish killed if there is another algae bloom. The water crisis is caused by warm water and runoff. If there is another water crisis it will affect many things.

However, their attempts weren 't as successful as they had hoped because animal rights are still being fought for today. Animals are living things and should not be tested on as an object or inhumanely killed as a source of food. According to HFA’s Campaign to Stop Slaughterhouse Abuse, in slaughterhouses, animals are put on conveyer belts to speed up the butchering process. The farmers take into consideration not the well being of the animals, but only the efficiency of how many can be killed in a day. Pigs are dumped into boiling water so if they don 't burn, they drown.

Birds across the United States are disappearing after towns are sprayed with pesticides. Dutch elm disease, a fungal disease brought to the U.S. from Europe, has invaded many cities in New England causing a need for abundant DDT spraying. The spraying of the Elm trees poisoned earthworms, which in turn lead to a drastic decrease in the number of robins that eat them. The DDT does not directly kill the robins, but it makes them sterile meaning they will be the last generation of robins. Many other species of birds die when trees are sprayed with insecticides because insects are their primary source of food.
The author claims that, “Critics are nervous the cocktail of fluids will leak”(2.3).
