Even when humans are taken into account first, some of these decisions can actually cause more harm than good. Destroying the Earth is simultaneously destroying humans, because they depend on the environment for survival. Eradicating one species of insects, for example, can have serious unintended effects. These pesticides can kill of pollinating insects as well, which in turn reduces crop outputs. All living things in the natural world depend on one another, just as people depend on one another in human environments.
In my area there has an escalated amount of pollution. The amount of pollution has affected the protected wildlife areas and parks. Polluted rivers are killing the wildlife, and animals are in danger because of the heavy amounts of pollution. A lot of people aren 't properly recycling their waste and that affects the environment, and the wildlife living in it, greatly. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has been trying to raise awareness around pollution since 1967.
A tornado can destroy anything in its path. It kills many people and animals. An example would be a tornado breaking a skyscraper and 1,000 people dying. A flood can affect many places. In Ancient Egypt, floods were good, however, in the U.S.A., floods are bad.
It has left a serious ecological and human impact on Vietnamese people. Many children today have various diseases and disabilities because of the harmful chemical used in the war. It also destroyed over one million hectares of forests ( Rohn, 2013). Another is when Saigon fell the communists gathered many South Vietnamese people and took them to places called re- education camps. Here the South Vietnamese people had to do harsh works.
Lastly, in addition to all the chemical weapons and diseases the soldiers also suffered emotionally greatly from the environment they had to live in. The conditions in the trenches were deplorable from all the filth to all the vermin everywhere. The conditions were just perfect for illness and death, “The damp conditions caused the injuries to become more infected as they didn’t have a dry environment to heal in.” The different weathers brought different problems. For example, winter brought frostbite and the summer would bring dehydration. The deplorable conditions caused for many soldiers to have an early death in the trench.
There are many different ways people can harm the earth, and it isn 't just littering. In the article "How Does Pollution Affect All Living Things? ", it states the definition of pollution as the introduction of harmful contaminants into air, water and soil. "The contaminates can have dire effects on entire ecosystems, making life more difficult for humans, plants and animals." All living things can get sick from all the chemicals polluting everywhere they inhabit.
It changed our world by destroying the economy and destroying people. It destroyed trust in the world and sparked more fear. It caused so much hate to build in every country. The overall effects of the Holocaust was so many shocking deaths. The amount of casualties were horrendous reaching the 11 millions.
DDT was a war against nature. The aerosols were sprayed on farms, gardens, forests, and homes. When an organism became immune to an insecticide, a deadlier one was developed. DDT had “the power to kill every insect, the song of birds, and the leaping of fish in the streams.” The chemicals of life were synthetic creations brewed in labs. DDT polluted the air and damaged many necessary factors of life.
The interaction of acid rain with soil is bad for any plants trying to grow there. Hydrogen ions from the acid deposits displace the calcium, magnesium and potassium, leaching them from the soil and making them unavailable to the plants that need them. Acid can also mobilize the aluminum ions that were previously a harmless part of aluminum hydroxide. These
The Cost of War, the disastrous repercussions of using force is demonstrated in the consequences of wars. Because of the fact that people could not get along and many were trying to force their ideas on people, wars were the aftermath. In August 1945, U.S. drops atomic bombs which killed many people and destroyed tons of plants and animal life. In 1949, Germany placed an embargo on a food and fuel shipment; destroying all the agricultural areas. In the Vietnam War, U.S. used Agent Orange to destroy the forest in Vietnam.
This documentary opened my eyes to many of the things that occur in my own country. I knew that politicians were looking for a way to use the resources that we have here in our own country instead of having to buy them from others, but I would have thought they would have done it while in the best interest of the people. Before watching this documentary, I was not familiar with natural gas or any of the processes that it takes to make it. I just knew that it was an efficient energy source. With any resource that we remove from the earth, we risk hurting people and many other things in the process.
Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide both can dissolve in water. I personally feel that it is because of humans acid rain is so harmful. Over the years humans have mixed and released so many some many different chemicals in the air. When power plants burn things like fossil fuels, like coal to get electricity they create and release more of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide. Other that cause acid rain are things like cars, trucks and buses because they also release
The Dust Bowl There’s a huge cloud coming only it 's not a cloud made of water, it 's a cloud of dust. When the Great Depression started in the 1930s there was a lot of economic problems, but during this time of crisis the Dust Bowl started. The dust bowl was a huge cloud of dust that destroyed parts of America. When the Dust Bowl hit it destroyed the agriculture and the dust storm affected the farmers living were the Dust Bowl hit and wherever the Dust Bowl hit, the farmer’s health was affected as well. When the Dust Bowl came it completely destroyed the agriculture due to the severe drought that had come before the actual storm arrived.
4. The Vietnam War saw the use of many controversial military tactics used by both the United States and their allies, as well as the Viet Cong and NVA. On the American side, one of the most prevalent and well known missions was Operation Ranch Hand, a decade long herbicidal warfare campaign that is still causing terrible birth defects to this day. The herbicides used in Agent Orange were contaminated with an even worse chemical, known as TCDD, which is a heavy carcinogen and teratogen. In the period that it was used, agricultural lands were sprayed with Agent Orange in an attempt to starve the enemy by destroying the main crop in the region, rice.
Could you imagine the pain and burning of having melted tar poured on your entire body then the worst part pulling off the tar as it takes the skin with it. Additionally they were criminals, smuggling tea and hiring thugs to do your dirty work is not only illegal it’s frowned upon in the past and present. A lot of people who died not in battle but in the
