Today, the planet had already overloaded because of growing population and there is no doubt that human is the only contributor for environmental imbalances. As population increases the need of world’s consumption is increased and to fulfill the demand for food, there is a need to expand in agriculture. Due to the activity to meet the increasing consumption, the natural resources are under pressure. For eg; fertilizer uses has
In the city land use pattern has undergone tremendous transformation due to the impact of urbanization and industrialization. Changes in the land use pattern bring certain ecological changes. Land by definition, is solid part of earth surface. It is finite resource so great care should be taken to preserve it .Land has been put to many new uses, apart from traditional ones. These are the general use of land: 1.
To solve this problem effectively, poor and rich country must work together and cooperate with each other on how to bring up solutions to these environmental problems. Climate change is the long-term rise in average temperatures of the earth. The Earth 's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last few years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the sudden end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and it is proceeding at a uncontrollable rate.
Land-cover is a key and effective variable in the Earth system that is related to most of the human and physical environments. Change in the situation of land-cover is an important variable among the global changes that affect environmental systems (Otukei and Blaschke 2010). Land-cover changes play a main role in the global carbon cycle, and in the exchange of greenhouse gases between the atmosphere and the earth surface (Loveland and Belward 1997). In general, intense human activities have an increase in construction and farmland and destruction of forests, meadows and other natural resources (Lambin and Geist 2003; Lawrence et al. 2012).
The Effects of Urbanization on our Environment The purpose of this research is to highlight the effects of urbanization on our immediate surroundings. The goal is to outline the processes that comprise urbanization and how these processes have affected the different parts of our environments. This was done by analysing past articles and journals on urbanization. Due to the increased rate of urbanization in the world today, environmental pollution has increased at an alarming rate, leading to problems such as creation of heat islands, global warming, water pollution, and erosion. This paper stresses on the effect of urbanization on land, water and the air.
Many effects can be seen in the future if global warming continues. It includes economic consequences, more hurricanes, a spread of diseases and earthquake. Human-emitted greenhouse gases cause excess heat which has warmed the world’s oceans during the past decades. Water expands when it warms, which leads to sea level rise (USNRC “Climate Change: Evidence, Impact, and Choices”). Moreover, the global warming has affected the life of other living things such as animals and plants.
Climate change is believed to be the biggest issue facing the Earth. It is a long-term change in the Earth’s temperatures and climate (“Climate Change”, Dictionary.com). Our atmosphere is part of the reason why we can live on Earth with reasonable temperatures. Humans have been emitting unnatural greenhouse gases, like coal, oil, and gas. This is changing the natural systems that take place in our atmosphere.
The human impact in Earth’s environment And the need for sustainable development Planet Earth Mawada Al Salehi 13-0229 6th Jan 2015 Introduction Humans have increased their standard of living by discovering intelligent ways to develop the natural environment of the Earth, such as growing food, extracting minerals, building structures, transporting materials, and manufacturing goods of all kinds. As the world is developing, the human activities on Earth are increasing, and this has many side effects on the environment, huge example for that is global warming. As a result sustainable development is required in this situation to maintain the world’s stability. This essay will outline the human impact in the environment and the results
Abiotic factors, the ocean currents, evaporation, orbital and volcanic activity, while biotic factors, are the factor that effecting the photosynthesis, respiration, decomposition and digestions. Many climate scientists are looking at their own data and facts, they agree that planet is warming. There 's so many views about the effect of climate change to be substantial and more rapidly occurring than others do. For instance, according to Mr. Richard Cullather over the past years, the Earth has risen between 0.4 to 0.8 degrees Celsius, and the sea caps used to be solid sheets of ice, now is fragmented into an adversary. NASA is still doing surveys about the flight of the ARCTIC, they are trying their best to validate their readings about the impact on melting on land and sea ice (NASA NEWS).
The earth is warming. Earth’s average temperature has risen by 1.4F over the past century. This has affected the worlds climate and the ecosystem we live. Many places have seen changes in rainfall, resulting more floods, drought, or intense rain as well as more frequent and severe heat waves. Oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, ice caps are melting and the sea levels are rising.
