This in turn affects a health care administrator’s job, because it would be their duty to make tough decisions surrounding the health insurance situation and have resolutions that abide by the company policies while also making employees happy. Ultimately, the bottom line is that the cost of health insurance increases every year. But if there is nothing done about this problem, the unemployment rate will skyrocket and most Americans will be without a job, and not only that, they will be without needed health insurance. There is a solution that just may solve the rising cost of health insurance and help make a Health Care Administrator’s job a lot easier. Overall, it may be said that the cost of health insurance in America is increasing drastically every year.
Environmental Impacts of the California Drought Introduction Over the last several hundred years, many scientists have proven that Climate change, or the other name, “Global Warming” that people think is politically incorrect, is a major problem in our future if we do not act to reverse its effects. One place around the world that has experienced these effects of this world issue is California. California has been in a major drought for several years now, and looks to continue for several years to come if nothing is done to mitigate the effects of climate change. The drought in California caused the increase in wildfire activity and low water levels, which as a result has caused tree mortality across California. Increase in wildfires One
We should get involve more in public policies and affairs that will affect us. Furthermore, California’s taxes are too high, perhaps if we lower the taxes, companies will start hiring people back. Lastly, the two-third requirement for raising taxes, it’s impossible to achieve. It will be better if they lower the requirement for supermajority to raise taxes. these were the five elements that causing the crisis in
The article,”The Wrong Way to Think about California Water” by Michael Hiltzik, touches on the way citizens think about the drought. For example, many Americans worry about the concussions of bottled water on the environment. The article, however states that people should not be worried about bottled water, because,”The entire nation consumes a bit more than 10 billion gallons of bottled water per year. California’s total water usage is 38 billion gallons per day.”(Hiltzik). Despite the fact that plastic water bottles are severely overpriced, bottled water is not the main cause of the drought.
There are however many farmers who still use old methods greatly reducing their crop output just because they find new machinery strange and unreliable. Many farmers are not well trained or ill literate. They do not use better fertilizers to boost up the crop yield. The over use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides will increase the chances of crop poisoning affecting the health of thoese who eat
Most people in Honduras live in the north where most of the factories for work are located, but indigenous people and anyone else living in the rural areas deal with most of the effects of deforestation. When you remove large areas of forest the climate will begin to change and effect anyone living around it. Since Honduras is a poor country it is harder to protect yourself from environmental changes. Also, by deforestation the water sources they use are no longer protected and leave rural and urban areas without good drinking water. Illegal logging is still a rising problem, because those doing so are not having to pay taxes on sales to other countries, and this is taking away from all wood sellers in the Honduras community.
Are the pricey organic foods actually healthier than the conventional foods produced without the extra requirements from the U.S. Department of Agriculture? People have been paying extra for healthier foods that claim to have added health benefits, but after multiple experiments and studies scientists have come up with few actual benefits. Not the mention that the prices of some of these organic foods can be outrageously higher than conventional foods. Organic foods are said the be produced healthier than the non-organic foods, regardless of the high prices and scientists denying any true health benefits. Many studies have found that foods claiming to be organic and better for you actually have no major difference between them and the regular
Oil burns and releases toxins and CO2, poking holes in the ozone layer. People inhale oil fumes and suffer with asthma. There are a million ways that oil is destroying human lives, but if we get off land and go underwater, oil’s damaging effect on the oceans’ habitats adds the more reasons to strive for the use of alternative energy sources. Since oil began to be used widely as a fuel, there hasn’t been a year without a copious number of oil spill incidents. In the US alone, the Office of Response and Restoration of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) responds to over a hundred oil spills each year (NOAA).
This paper introduces an important phenomenon that negatively affects the populations and the environment. Through it we aim to spread the awareness to the public and suggest a daily, simple and environmentally friendly life style and routine.The paper discusses the inflation of hurricanes intensity resulting from high temperature, which based on climate change phenomena. Through the last years, our earth has experienced a rise in the number and in the intensity of hurricanes. The impacts that these hurricanes lefts behind is enormous to human, environment, and economy. Preventing hurricanes from appearing is impossible, but by reducing the earth's temperature we can reduce hurricane's intensity, which can be by using the education, technology,
Remember the revolutions that swept the Middle East in 2011, they all began with people in the street upset over the price of food. What’s more many of the world's top agricultural experts believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg unless we figure out new strategies to deal with global food security. We may be entering a new and dangerous phase of human history where food water and energy shortages threaten not only worse poverty but also civic unrest and international conflict. There are a number of reasons for this alarm, the first reason is that in most years we produce only just enough food to cover uses. in fact in six of the last 11 years we actually consumed slightly more food then we produced and the buffer we take from one year to the next has been steadily falling so our system already seems pretty fragile ,but it's when we look into the future that things grow very dire indeed.
It may seem like this would make people not want to come to this state. That is where the real draw to this iconic state lies from the people who tough it out. People who are born and raised here are no exception they are the ones that at first chance are planning their exit strategy. From the few that make it or manage to get by is what makes it that more special. It is hard to just get by in California from the cost of living to the raising prices of gas, but Californians mange every day.
Many different types of people could possibly object this solution depending on their views. But mainly only farmers would object to these water cuts. Arguments that might say to oppose my stance is that these water cuts would not allow farmers to adequately grow their crops and might even lose money and crops if they cut back on water. Farmers use tons of extra gallons of water on crops than is actually even needed. In California farmers take almost 70% of all water taken from the colorado river which happens to supply fresh water to all the states in the mid west.
Lastly, McEwen had concerns about the Sierra water runoff. He criticized that “ there is no funding for dams or river recirculation technology that would maximize Sierra water runoff and lessen the economic devastation to some San Joaquin Valley farmers”(McEwen). In other words, McEwen wants funding for dams in the Sierra runoff because it would help San Joaquin farmers. His opinion still stands with McClintock in “Bone-dry California dumps water to 'make fish happy '”, an article, quoted by Greg Crorumbos: “We haven’t built a major dam in this state since 1979,” McClintock said. “Meanwhile, the population has nearly doubled.
This act states that industries must fully disclose to the public the contents in the water they use. By being exempt from this act, this creates some controversial talk among those that oppose fracking and believe that switching to renewables is the better option. “By the time the frackers are done in the other states our water will be worth more than oil” (Khavari). Water is gonna end being a valuable resource. Within the hydraulic fracking industry, millions of gallons of water are used up and more often than not, are never recovered again(Pros and Cons of Fracking).
Without fracking, the price of gas would have a drastic raise from $3.25 to $11 per gallon, so consumers would have to pay about $130 or more to refill their gas tank. Fracking has a bad reputation of polluting the environment that we live in. The government should allow hydraulic fracking to continue only if fracking companies agree to the following. Transporting fuel from foreign countries require a lot of money, the government should spend the money on better things like paying people to work of public projects. David Morris, PhD, Vice President of the institute for Local Self-Reliance states that the expenditures for our transportation fleets are about hundreds of billions of dollars.
