Wells referred the consequences of our actions as “bashing the ozone layer” to emphasize how impactful and critical our actions are endangering the Earth. We should look at limpets not only as a cephalopod, but also in the ways we are indirectly affecting them. In conclusion, “Civilization and the Limpet” by Martin Wells reminded us all about how our joints is the backbone to our way of process informations that hold up a civilization. At the same time, we have to also respect and recognize the cephalopods that do not have joints and still successfully living their lives. Wells presented a handful of informations, which I learned more than just limpets from this informative yet organized essay.
This makes it appealing to the reader because Lord is trying to convince her audience by giving credibility from a high positioned officer. In Kolbert’s “The Darkening Sea”, Kolbert shows how “Caldeira began to model the effects of carbon dioxide on the oceans in 1999, when he did some work for the Department of Energy. The department wanted to know what the environment consequences would be of capturing CO^2 from smokestacks and injecting it deep from the sea” (366). This quote from Kolbert shows how Kolbert uses a scientist to attract the audience. Just like Lord’s text, this quote is coming from a high official who has had a lot of experience around environmental studies.
Millions of polyps doing this over time create huge reefs. Polyps are among the ocean 's most fragile creatures. The slightest touch by an object--like an anchor--can hurt or kill them. Also, the animals grow only in clean tropical water that 's between 68°F and 82°F. A change in the water 's temperature or chemical makeup can be deadly for polyps.
In today’s world there are many contributing factors to the pollution of the oceans. Many people may think that because they don’t live close to the ocean that they are not the root cause for the pollution that is occurring. Well they would be wrong in every sense of the word. It doesn’t matter where you live whether it be close or far from the ocean you are having an impact on the ocean. A few weeks back I partook in a service learning project at the Sodalis Nature Park and I was taught all about how one invasive plant species can have a negative impact on the ocean.
This is why captains are buckling down on the manatees manners. If they do not follow the rules, they will have their permit pulled away from the FWC to run their business. FWC has really cracked down on these rules and helped manatees tremendously. This is important not only to save these creatures, but our economy here in Crystal River. Even locals can avoid harassing the manatees, By slowing down and observing the manatees without harassing them.
Whether there is any significant impact of the existence of sharks is a non-debatable issue, but two diverse views concerning the issue On the one hand, Sharks are portrayed as vicious creatures who are a threat to human existence, and on the other, what is often overlooked is the vital impact of sharks on our society and the food chain, how it preserves our ecosystem to where it stands today. Consequently, due to corrupt human nature, the population of sharks is declining substantially. This essay will exhibit many arguments, including: the social ,economical, political and environmental impacts of sharks, while favouring their existence and display how corrupt human nature is simply disposing of this valuable creature. Sharks have many positive
I learned a bunch of new things from this presentation. For example: 1) The Magnuson‐Stevens Act (Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act) that deals with the conservation and management of sustainable fisheries in the US waters as well as promotes US commercial fisheries. 2) Presidential Task Force and its recommendations to prevent IUU Fishing, which is a historic step to
The positive effects are you get to keep using the beach. The negative effects, it 's bad for the environment and the animals that live or nest there such as sea turtles and crabs. So I think seawalls are necessary in some places so we can hold off erosion and not have to do beach nourishment. But it 's bad for the environment and the sea creatures so we should keep the number of hard structures to as little as
In “Is Fish Farming Safe?” Terry McCarthy states that the current way of fish farming is ruining our water and eco systems by dumping waste. Elizabeth Kolber essay “The Acid Sea” discusses about the carbon dioxide we are pumping into our oceans, and Susan Casey “Our Oceans Are Turning into Plastics… are you?” focuses on how we are dumping plastics and garbage into our oceans. While despite these author’s talking about different topic they all agree about future ramifications of having wastes in our oceans and waters.
As said by Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra “One must be a sea, to receive a polluted stream without becoming impure”. Air wildlife are also greatly affected by plastic pollution. Seabirds area a common example. Seabirds often mistake trash floating on the ocean’s surface as prey. Or often their food sources had already ingested plastic debris, thus transferring the plastic from prey to
