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.
This chapter also discusses funding for the Global South against the changing climate, including the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and other NGOs. Chapter seven discusses the complications with trying to put clean energy systems; dams, solar energy, etc. into the jungle because of the industrious changes that would be needed for the land. At the same time, trying to go against these new clean energy sources can be dangerous because it can get you killed by not the environment but the people who own the business. When it comes to clean energy, the politics are more dangerous than the environment changing.
Most people think of these main effects on human life when they think of the consequences of wildfires, but there are other ramifications many don’t realize. One such consequence being the effect on local economies. Wildfires and even severe fire danger can directly decrease recreation and tourism in those areas, potentially taking away significant local government income. Also extensive damage to trees can significantly lower timber supply, both from the short term decrease in timber supply and the longer term decline while to trees regrow. Water supplies can be effected by post-fire erosion and stream sedimentation.
Do you know that everyday national parks are being damaged greatly? If you like to go to parks or national parks it then you will agree with me when you see that the earth is being changed everyday. Due to over visitation the parks are being mistreated. For example The Grand Canyon is one that is affected a lot more then it should be with pilots flying over it, having dirt bike riders going on the mountain range, also having people in here boats. This is exposing the park to so much more bad pollution then there already is.
Jeri Ward Professor Lyn Froehlich English 1101 30 September 2015 Pesticides and the Death of Pollinators Our world as we know it may not exist in the near future. Right now, pesticides are eradicating pollinators by the thousands. These essential organisms are the major way that plants are able to reproduce. If pollinators are eliminated, the earth will lose a significant amount of vegetation, resulting in a considerable deficit of oxygen and precipitation. Due to pollution, air quality is already poor.
Impacts: Animal Agriculture Animal agriculture is something that this world depends on in order to continue human survival. Humans use animals for all sorts of different products around the world. But is it hurting the environment past revival? As many of us know, the use of animals on a factory level is very damaging to the environment. Fecal matter from these farms are often times leached into rivers and are also creating methane gas which helps contribute to global warming.
Because now you can be fined if you do not have insurance. It has made our taxes go up especially for the wealthy. It is making people lose their jobs and hours because businesses are cutting the worker hours to avoid covering the extra cost of employees insurance. People should not have to pay for health insurance or be threatened with a large fine for not having it. It is intrusive for the government to require you to have insurance.
Due to the doping scandal, the sponsors brand image was affected since the negative image that Armstrong created caused an attitude change of the consumers. Only the consumers who are attached to the athlete, in this case Lance Armstrong, or to the brand involved in the scandal are the ones that will not change their consumer behaviour. Fact is that the majority of consumers did change their view on the brand and therefore the brand had to deal with loss. Due to the negative effects that Lance Armstrong caused he was forced to pay back $10 million he received in bonus money from sponsors. Another example of a scandal in the sport world is that of the notorious Tiger Woods.
From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting. Our natural resources are at risk every time fracking occurs. Fracking needs to be banned since it is hurting our health and that it drains our natural and limited resources required for us to sustain life. Water is an essential to living and it is a need. Without it we would be dead from the dehydration.
Global Warming is another huge threat to this biome. This threat is also getting progressively worse because of the deforestation. Deforestation is causing temperature changes, the lossage of the process of photosynthesis, and the shelters of many animals homes. Flooding in the tropical rainforest is not a major concern but it can sometimes be a threat. Although they normally are very common.
