Lastly, McEwen had concerns about the Sierra water runoff. He criticized that “ there is no funding for dams or river recirculation technology that would maximize Sierra water runoff and lessen the economic devastation to some San Joaquin Valley farmers”(McEwen). In other words, McEwen wants funding for dams in the Sierra runoff because it would help San Joaquin farmers. His opinion still stands with McClintock in “Bone-dry California dumps water to 'make fish happy '”, an article, quoted by Greg Crorumbos: “We haven’t built a major dam in this state since 1979,” McClintock said. “Meanwhile, the population has nearly doubled.
However, it 's not only just because of man-made reasons. The coastal marshes disappearing can also be affected by natural causes. Sediment is being deposited into a river delta increasing the weight, which causes the entire area to sink (p. 11). Depositing may sound like a positive cause, but however if the course of the sediment changes then no new sediment will continue to be deposited. Another natural cause is oceans and hurricanes.
Louisiana marshes are disappearing pulling the state’s land into the Gulf of Mexico and turning into open water. This is due to coastal erosion, global warming, and the increase in human activity. These can and will affect New York and the rest of the country just as much as it is going to affect Louisiana, which is why this issue should not only drawn to the attention of New York, nevertheless in other states too. Tax money contributed by New York and other states combined can help prevent the state from ever so slowly disappear. Coastal erosion is when land wears away due to currents, drainage, or high winds.
Glen Canyon Dam was built to provide much needed power to Phoenix. President Eisenhower greenlit the project and the Bureau of Reclamation was the force behind its construction. Although the Sierra Club fought against building the dam, their efforts were not successful. Its creation decimated the natural ecosystems, fish that had evolved to survive in its silty water died as clear colder water came out of the dam. Archeologically the dam also represented a loss, as thousand-year-old petroglyph panes and caved dwelling of the Anasazi became submerged.
$88 milion sounds like a lot of money, imagine throwing it all away. Instead of using money for say, the funding of schools, Nasa, and/or hospitals our government has decided to spend it all on a worthless endeavor. The project can not be allowed to continue for it will result in failure and with horrible consequences. Studies have shown that the salmon population will not increase over time.
Augustine can not afford to lose and efforts must be made to preserve its memory through documentation. The La Leche cemetery holds holds historic and cultural significance through the archeology and importance in burials on site. Being the first integrated cemetery, burial site for the influential sisters of St Joshes’ and home to a diverse array archeological figures and artifacts, gives prominent evidence of the importance of the La Leche cemetery and why its memory should be preserved. The cemetery, like many other sites in the United States and through out the world, is extremely vulnerable to the effects of sea level rise now and in the years to come. The flooding, increase in storm surge, greater salinity of water and warmer temperature of the ocean all negatively effect the make up of the cemetery including everything from the historic coquina stone in the bases of the headstones, to the surfacing of caskets as observed in cities like New Orleans and Springfield South Carolina.
That way multiple ships can get the radio call if a ship is sinking. Since ships did not have their radios on, it really affected history. It caused a whole big law to get passed to make things more safer. If you don 't have a radio on it will affect a lot if you miss a distress. Many people died, because there wasn 't enough lifeboats.
By Mataya Green There are a lot of challenges that affected WA after world war two. There are things that we can’t even imagine what happened because we were never there to witness it. We are also polluting our economy and we cannot stop. There are so many challenges to face in the world, but there is also a lot in Washington.
Third, the reading states that if water habitats were better protected from excessive water use, many frogs species would recover. The professor refutes this point by saying that this method will not save frogs ' populations. The professor points out that global warming is the biggest problem that caused a decline in frogs ' population, not the water loss. The professor explains that a lot of species were extinct because of water loss.
The only time one person could see another person from a different village is when the water runners from different villages would see each other at the well, but this would rarely happen. The water runners were the people from the villages who would make a 20 mile trip from their village to get a supply of water for their village. Only the strongest in the village would be able to go because this trip was a hard and dangerous one. The trip to the well and back would take 1 1/2 days and the supply of water would last up to 2 weeks at most, so every two weeks the trip would have to be made.
Flooding, constant down pours, and windy weather is so different from where I am from Charlottesville, VA than it is here in Norfolk, VA. Since I have been on campus its flooded so many times, I 've lost tract. Every time it rains it floods. I myself am not use to this type of weather yes it rains in Charlottesville but it doesn 't flood as bad as it does here in Norfolk.
You all have been hearing don’t pollute your whole life, but it still happens. Pollution is a huge problem especially in the ocean, the ocean plays a vital role to our survival and with all polluting it, it causes problems for us in the long run. Pollution causes a lot of damage to the ecosystems that live in the ocean and the ocean itself. When the oil spill happened in the Gulf of Mexico that was a bad disaster, that was man made that hurt an ecosystem in ocean. All that oil spread throughout the ocean causing a lack of sunlight to penetrate through the water deep making it hard for plants to grow and or prosper.
As a result of the lack of food and water, the surviving colonists moved to different locations in an attempt to find the necessary resources in order to survive. If they were to have stayed and waited for John White to come back, they would have died of hunger or disease. Right before they departed, they used the last of the medicine and forgot to dispose of the shards, which were the remnants left at their settlement. When the colonists left, some of the them were still ill and needed more medicine, which also led them to leave their settlement and journey with the Croatans in search for more resources. The natives were thought to be “animal-like” and down to earth people and knew of herbs and plants that could heal the colonists.
Has one known about the first American colony? The colony that started an entire country? That amazing but horrible place was Jamestown. Jamestown was the first permanent colony in America, and it was located in Virginia, up the Chesapeake Bay. It took many deadly years to form with threats all around the colony, but it was able to survive.
