Ecology Lab California is currently in a water crisis where we are in a loss of water. Californians need a solution to this water crisis or else the entire state may be stuck without water to supply our water needs. Water is necessary in all of California to maintain a sustainable biodiversity. In order to survive, we need to figure out ways to reduce water use in California, which is famous for its farming and weather.
In the past with the drought, we always had problems such as agriculture, water in wells, lakes, and rivers decreasing. Now we 'll be more have problems such as groundwater level declines, money costs, lands sinking, and that most of our waters sources are decreasing. “Several California Water Science Center streamgages have recently recorded streamflows that are below all-time record lows for specific days of the year”(drought impact). According to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab,“This sinking of land, known as subsidence, is a known consequence of groundwater pumping and a problem that California’s been dealing with for decades. But it’s gotten worse as the state’s become drier ”(drought impact).We always had that problem but now it becoming worse through the lack of water.
California dry from all of its water people trying to sell or just moving anywhere else.The drought has been going on for many years and slowly California is running out of water.If the government of California does not do anything the people may start to attack farmer to get water or the government may go for the people.
Climate Change’s Effects on The Mojave Desert The problem known as climate change is causing a domino effect of devastating blows to the Mojave Desert’s ecosystem. Resulting in damage to plants and animals. Given this, if not changed now the effects will damage humans too. Sadly, it starts the pain by first taken out the most valuable source to any living creature: water.
Hurry hurry conserve the water before it’s runs out! Did you know California is in a drought? Animals and crops all over California are dying because california has been in a drought for four years now. The government is limiting the water uses to farmers.
Due to a shortage of water in California, the governor has proposed a diversion system to move water from the Northern California to Southern California. As for this will probably help since there is more farming, and more climate changes in Northern California. This will make a big bad and good difference.
Hazards in California A disaster hotspot is a place at risk from 2 or more hazards; California is at risk from 6 hazards: droughts, wild fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides and volcanoes Droughts Droughts are becoming more frequent in California in the years between 2000 and 2013, 43% of these years have suffered a drought however from 1906 to 1999 only 31% of these years have suffered a drought this proves that the frequency of droughts is going up. They are also caused by La Nina which effects are getting more severe. Wild fires As droughts have become more frequent so have wild fires from 1980 to 1989 on average there was 140 wildfires now from 2000 to 2012 they have 250 wildfires.
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 California Wildfires have stretched over 229 square miles and destroyed 1,750 homes and other structures firefighters are going what they can to save every home that has a chance. The drought is what these fires because of everything being so dry and CAlifornia already being temperature hot the fires just start popping up
The drought will negatively impact our environment. Drought is a cause of wildfire in California. Wildfires will affect to environment quality, property and lives. Drought leads to arid land forests and high temperature. It is a cause of the wildfire. California received lower rain and wetter less than average. It is one of some reasons wildfire in California. Another cause of the wildfires is dryness weather, wildfires are most frequently in hot areas where there are extended periods of drought and higher temperature. So higher fire season in California is in the summer. The forest is providing the oxygen and fight with global warming. It is also fight flooding, help flash flood and reducing property damage by block the flow. So wildfire
People in this society believes every statement that is said by an important person true. In California, new reports has claimed California to be in a drought due to the waste of water. However, is California’s drought report an actual problem?
From: Mr.Jazayeripour the manager of Mojave Desert community to: The California Environmental Protection Agency Water is one of the necessary sources for organisms to survive in many ways. and did you know that (The United States uses about 346,000 million gallons of fresh water every day. allaboutwater.org-water.facts ) Mojave river, colorado river and underground water are the main sources of water for animals, plants, residential, industrial and agricultural uses. ground-water depletion is primarily causes by sustained groundwater pumping.
Our beautiful 31st state, California, is in a major drought. What is causing the valley to sink more than it ever has in recent years? “Sipping California Dry” authored by Matt Richtel, goes beyond the issues at hand by interviewing the farmers themselves, detailing exactly what is happening in the golden state with pictures that show just how bad it is in California. This drought is a real issue, and the author works very hard to bring to light certain aspects of it that we may not know about in a detailed, informative way.
Hot and dry conditions cause earth surface to be drier and this lead to massive wildfires which destroy wildlife habitat and inject huge amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. There are some positive impacts of wildfires on the environment, wildfires clean up a forest of dead and decaying matter. They maintain ecosystem balance by removing diseased plants and harmful insects and regeneration of seeds through sunlight. They kill invasive species, allowing for indigenous species to continue thriving. Wildfires can engender flash flood conditions and enable soil erosion, with an increase in water runoff.
In 2015 in the middle of summer there was a conflagration.The conflagration was in a small town of M.T Vernon,Oregon and it burned for days and days.Firefighters tell me that it started because of the conflagration in California it started from the small embers that traveled and landed in a pile of hay,and spread to the dry grass.
