However , the industrial waste in particular is the most danger to it . One of the human activities that threatens ocean and sea animals is unsustainable overfishing. Pelle (2014) explains that big fishing boats in Europe have been considerably reducing the population of pacific tuna species due to overexploitation. Therefore, overfishing could also be the reason for the decrease is the population of oceanic
Approximately 50% of the worlds’ population will be living in regions around the globe that are considered “water stressed”, either due to lack of it, or poor quality, by the year 2030 (compared to 15% currently). Water is a fundamental and integral part of human survival. We imbibe it, cook with it, bathe in it, and use it to filter and dispose of sewage. As the global population is expected to keep growing in the coming decades, the negative impact that humans will have on earths finite resources, especially water, will become increasingly apparent as areas of the world will start to experience drastic shortages of water, leading to instability in food production, industry, social order, and political and military
Food insecurity has many causes, including rising food prices, climate change, population growth, and inadequate income. First, Healthy food is just more expensive because the demand for unhealthy food is higher in the U.S. In addition to this, healthy food is more expensive due to global warming, as crop production is
The collapse of the marine ecosystem would result in the a massive amount of loss in fish stocks, resulting in the loss of business and the starvation of many people around the world that rely on fish as their major supply of food. (The main cause of overfishing is large fishing companies
2. The world collectively currently only recycles 5% of it’s 100 million ton a year plastic consumption, but that percentage is steadily rising (Can the world solve the plastic waste problem). IV. Once plastic enters the oceans, it’s hard to get
Participants were acquired from 21 schools and a total of 2,094 boys and 2,037 girls were involved in the study. Only children aged from 6 to 17 were allowed to participate in the study. Out of the 4131 children survey, an overall 55.50% of children fit the criteria of neglect. Comparing families, children of the traditional Chinese family (Han) experienced less neglect (53.07%) than the children of minority families living in China (68.76%). Children who have parents that work away from the home for a long period of time experience more neglect than children who are not left behind.
Marine life affected by an oil spill are at risk for disrupted growth, development, and reproduction. They are prone to tissue damage, a disrupted immune system and a change in swimming ability and behaviors. The 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was deemed the worst oil spill in US history. According to a study by NRDC, the BP oil spill killed more than 1,000 sea turtles, and left more than 2,000 stranded, compared to an average 240 stranded annually. Over 1 million birds, and up to 5,000 marine mammals also lost their lives in the disaster.
In the 10 years before the MMR combination vaccine, it’s estimated that more than three million people were infected with the virus each year. Up until 2000 the virus was all but eradicated, reducing the cases by over 99%. In 2008, due to the increase in anti-vaccinators, there was an increase in outbreaks. From December 2014 to January 2015, the CDC reported 644 cases of measles which is the highest number in any year since it was originally declared eliminated in 2000, all because people don’t vaccinate (“All Times Overview”). Thanks to immunizations, it is estimated that 2-3 million deaths are prevented every year in all age groups from preventable diseases, with an estimated 109 million children under the age of one being vaccinated.
When liquids and other materials begin to degrade, they release a juice that can be toxic if consumed. Leachate can not only be stored by the soil and make it less fertile, but also contaminate the source of water that is close by. This liquid can completely ruin the whole water system for those that depended on it. Water pollution has increased over the last couple of years and “in the U.S. 40% of rivers and lakes are considered too polluted to support normal activities”
