Native tribes that live in the Amazon Rainforest face disasters in their everyday life. The Amazon Rainforest provides all the oxygen that people around the world need. Basically the Amazon rainforest gives us life. The benefits of developing the Amazon Rainforest outweigh the costs because it causes deforestation, pollution in the water and the air,
2 Nov. 2014. The Environmental Magazine published an article about factory farming, and its impact on the environment and climate changes. While many people go uninformed animals from factory farms are major polluters emitting a large percentage of greenhouse gasses in recent years. The side effects of raising animals in factory farms for food have large impacts on the environment, and public health. With the need for more animal pastures, and grazing land deforestation is occurring globally.
According to the World Wildlife Fund, approximately twenty-seven soccer fields worth of trees are cut down per minute (Hook). Deforestation is a major environmental problem occurring all over the world. Trees are being cut down constantly for a number of reasons, which is greatly harming the environment. Deforestation is causing more and more problems in the world such as, global warming and loss of habitat. Trees are being cut down at a very fast rate and we need to do something about it before it is too late.
Although cattle ranching is necessary there are some bad effects. Seventy percent of animals on earth live in forest so their lives and species are being endangered due to deforestation and the loss of trees increases carbon dioxide in the air. Although deforestation is a problem it is shown in document C that the Brazilian government is trying to fix their mistakes. In 1980, 80% of the deforested land was used for agricultural services (cattle ranching, logging, and large and small scale agriculture Doc C.) In ten more years only 60% of the land was used for agricultural services, so this shows the deforestation problem is working on getting
The forests always had occasional fires for as long as there had been a forest, but the frequency and the severity of man-made fires resulted in a negative environmental impact as well as social discontent over forest depletion. Large scale fires result in a loss of topsoil. The hot temperatures reached in large fires burns away the topsoil and organic material in the soil that is vital to the health of the forest. Less vegetation as a result of forest fires doubles the amount of runoff flowing into mountain streams, and increases the speed at which snow melts and fills streams. Effects such as these can have unpredictable effects on the environment.
The article written by Michael T. Klare, titled The Coming Hunger Wars: Heat, Drought, Rising Food Costs, and Global Unrest, tries to persuade the reader that the so called “Great Drought” of 2012 has roots in global warming, and “the immediate consequences of the still ongoing Great Drought: dying crops, shrunken harvests, and rising food prices,” and the long term effects including social and political uproars. (Klare 4) Klare uses many techniques in his writing, including ethos, pathos, and logos, which can be very effective when implemented properly. Klare’s audience is widespread because he feels we all play a part in our climate and environment, but he is looking to really hit the climate change non-believers. In analyzing The Hunger Games, 2007-2011 portion of the article, the author uses previous events that add to his thesis of the Great Drought and it’s causes and consequences. He starts off saying “What happens next is, of course,
Wildfires can destroy entire habitats of plants and wipe out life over miles of land. Once these fires clear large areas of vegetation the loss of plants can heighten the risk of significant erosion and landslides. In sudden rainfall these cleared areas become extremely dangerous and some observers have even reported soil “glassification,” where the silica in the soils become melted and fused, forming an impermeable layer in the soil. This impermeable layer can make it very difficult for future plants to grow back and for animals to re-inhabit the area. Although many don’t think of a benefit to wildfires in the biosphere, there are some positive outcomes of wildfires.
Statements such as "why worry about animals when so many people die from malaria, violence and war?" are not quite right. Although in his book, the author mostly worried about the suffering of animals, which in itself is a controversial point, it also affects a very important for mankind issue - a farm on which the animals have been growing. In unsanitary conditions many diseases can be developed, sequentially these conditions on the farms increase the likelihood of unintended human health consequences. The problem of global warming, which is also contributed by factory farming affects already now all people, despite the fact you eat meat or not.
Because of this demand, their living space needs to be expanded in order to grow food and provide homes for people. Hence, deforestation increases. This is another effect of overpopulation that impacts the worsening of the environment . For example decreased forest size increases the amount of carbon in the environment. More specifically, deforestation affects the wildlife and results in biodiversity loss and species extinction .
It is easy to observe that the effect of global climate change on the Earth. For example, the rises of sea levels, glaciers, and polar ice caps are melting; numerous animals are emigrating to find other places to exist; trees are in bloom sooner. Scientists have confirmed that the temperature will keep on rising up for the next decades because of human activities in the industry (Alina). One of the biggest problems facing us now is global warming. It not only affects animals and plants but also the human population, which is indeed scary (Markham).
(CSU, 2015) The Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic has shown the direct impacts of the warming of our planet and further proves the science behind climate change. The Mountain Pine Beetle now poses as another threat to the forests of North America and our environment. The pine beetle issue is much deeper than just having dead trees. The impacts the epidemic has had since 1995 has changed the landscape of Western North America forever and it greatly impacts communities, national forests, public lands, private lands, the lumber industry and water qualities in the
Tackling the numerous environmental health complications has been an essential focus for health prevention specialist alike. One in particular many don 't seem to fully grasp its importance or cease, is Deforestation. To many 's surprise, Deforestation has slowly taken center stage as global concern not only for humans, but, species inhabited within. After all, as a consequence of deforestation, everyone living on the planet gets affected, and displayed in the visual, you can evidently see a groundbreaking image that symbolizes the effects of such hazard. The image exhibited by WWF (The World Wide Fund for Nature) is certainly one that captivates the eye, and does a great job triggering rhetorical devices along the way.
However, the migrant of wildlife will become permanent environmental damages because our soil will lose its moisture and quality that includes the loss of wetlands that can lead to a permanent loss of biological productivity. Drought in California can be a contributing factor to wildfire because dry, hot, and changes in temperatures
