The Locavore Movement Increasing levels of greenhouse gases produced by fuel of trucks and animal production has caused a major impact in pollution and climate change. Also, in the U.S. there is a bad nutrition outbreak due to not eating enough fresh foods with the right nutrients. There is a movement taking place is aimed to solve this problem but will it actually work? The Locavore Movement is aimed to increase the nutrition in foods and reduce pollution. The Locavores, which are people of this movement, have decided to eat locally grown or produce products as much as possible.
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.
Niman, being a rancher who raises cattle, goats, and turkeys, effectively frames the situation logically by providing credible statistics and examples to help the reader better understand the impacts of different methods of food production. She does this by providing specific information regarding the greenhouse gases involved, being carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxides. Niman, the rhetor, has written this article to try and inform the readers about the differences between traditional style and industrial style methods of food production. She has directed the article towards those concerned about the carbon footprint, we as individuals, are leaving
In conclusion, water pollution can no longer be an issue if we change the materials in plastic, make a trash filter through an ocean, and if we make trash eating fish that will not be harmed. Those are all reasonable functions that can be done. If they are done, it will change the whole world for the better. It will make marine life healthier and in result causes less sickness from humans eating fish. Water pollution comes from humans and humans are the only ones that can fix
Being aware of the unhealthy methods we greedily enact at the expense of the Earth, I mindfully recycle and reduce the consumption of non-eco friendly items. Furthermore, I am aware of the negatives we cause for the greater good of people and the global economy, so I try to contribute back to the environment to help what I know is being hurt. For example, when I shop for my groceries at Publix, I always opt for the reusable grocery bags over the plastic bags; or when I go to Starbucks I bring my reusable cup which is much more environmentally friendly to use than constantly throwing away the paper cups. In return, Starbucks rewards me with a $0.10 cup discount which promotes me to be more ecologically aware and continue making positive environmental changes. This is another promotion to the idea of not just sitting and abiding to the suffering of others for our greater good.
The bad aspects, of course, are the damage to the rest of our food supply, the possible effects on health, the environmental damage that may cause problems and ultimately increase the price of food down the road (for example, climate change restricting areas where crops will be grown; or spreading dead zones making fish and shellfish less available). The other crops, the fruits and vegetables, are still being grown, but in more limited space and in more limited areas, making them in their turn potentially more vulnerable to difficulties with weather and climate change, and even things like mold or insect threats. There will also be a tendency for their farmers to seek more pesticides and fertilizers and modifications of the plants, be they by hybridizing or genetically modifying, in order to grow more in a more limited space, contributing more of the same sorts of environmental damage. Also, of course, these foods have become relatively more expensive. Choosing the cheaper corn-centered foods also causes consumers to miss out on some excellent nutrition and some great foods that can get overlooked when purchasing processed foods.
For example, people usually throw away food scraps, which contributes to overcrowded landfills. A solution to this problem is compost because it is made out of food scraps, therefore it will stop landfills from overflowing. This saves space for us because it is impossible to get rid of trash without burning it and that contributes to global warming. Not only that, compost helps plants grow without any crazy pesticides that is commonly used in our food. One day, if we disappear, the environment will be just fine.
As more and more water is becoming contaminated with pesticides and chemicals, it is becoming even harder to stop the corals from dying. Thankfully, there are solutions that can help restore the Great Barrier Reef. Just as there are several causes to the habitat change of the Great Barrier Reef, there are ways to put the progressing depletion to a stop. One effective solution is to cut farm pollution, or at least keep it from the oceans. Using organic fertilizers instead of harmful chemicals can keep the coral’s water fresh from the dangerous pesticides.
The world is constantly at war with the environment. Society is ruining its atmosphere by burning fossil fuels into the air causing our CO2 levels to skyrocket. How would a person react if they knew that a vegan diet could also reduce their dietary carbon footprint? Several studies have shown that a planet-based diet is the answer to improving our environment as a whole. A meat-producing farm eats up a significant amount of earth’s resources such as water, land, and crops (stehfest page 16) Instead of wasting the worlds plants to feed the over produced animals, society should be taking the already delicious crops and feeding them directly to humans.
INTRODUCTION The increase in population causing higher demand in agricultural commodities for both crop and animal. The increase in population is also associated with the environmental problem currently occurred (Aneja et al., 2006). Due to higher demand in both crop and animal product, farmers throughout the world have sought the problem by increasing productivity. However, due to the fact that the demand need to reach satisfactory, another main problem in animal agricultural industry is unmanaged waste. Waste from animal agricultural industry mainly the manure are very hard to utilised because the amount of manure is too much to handle since the amount of animal itself is quite high.
