The waste produced by the power plant has the ability to seek into the main water supply and the soil, evidently making the sources radioactive. Threats have also presented itself of possible attacks on a nuclear power plant. The dangerous and lethal effects that if a nuclear power plant were to have a meltdown are extreme. The radioactive material has the ability to travel and expand further than a uranium nuclear blast. The death toll will increase as radiation will travel for miles and miles reaching places that are not in near of the power plant.
and Canada, creating thousands of miles of ocean-like shores. The lakes also contain an estimated 35,000 islands. Officially dubbed "the nation 's fourth seacoast," the U.S. Great Lakes shoreline alone totals 10,210 miles (17,017 km), almost as long as the U.S. East, Gulf, and Pacific Coasts combined (about 11,323 miles or 18,223 km). As seen from space, the Great Lakes constitute one of the most identifiable features of the North American continent as well as our planet Earth. The North American Great Lakes are unique among the world 's large lakes, in that their basins are linked together and form one continuous drainage basin.
Yellowstone has 61 different mammals spread around the park including moose, elk, badgers, otters, and many others. Yellowstone is the ultimate Bear Country with over 500 grizzly bears plus an estimate of 600 black bears. Bison are another huge wildlife attraction in Yellowstone with anywhere from 2,300 to 5,500 depending on the season. In January 2016, the amount of wolves recorded was 98 wolves living in 10 different packs. Now, there are at least 13 different packs spread over the
Jimmy Carter, a former US president effectively incorporates logos – facts and evidence, pathos – appealing word choice and emotion, and ethos – credibility to build his persuasive argument. Carter strives to contend that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry. First, throughout the article, there are many situations where Jimmy Carter incorporates facts and examples. For example, he states, “The Arctic Refuge might provide 1 to 2 percent of the oil our country consumes each day.” By using such numbers, Carter forces the reader to evaluate the situation by recognizing the difference between an insignificant financial income and enormous damage to the territory. Furthermore, Carter mentions that “there are few places on earth as wild and fierce as the Arctic Refuge” to prove to the audience that the refuge is distinctive, rare, and does not
It has been mentioned that the wilderness will be consumed by "a web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities". The author uses ethos, logos, and pathos to construct and strengthen his argument, which is that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry. Jimmy Carter demonstrates the use of ethos to build his argument, which is that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry. For example, he quoted "Twenty years later, I signed the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, monumental legislation that safeguarded more than 100 million acres of national parks, refuges, and forests in Alaska". The author tries to point out in the quote that Jimmy Carter safeguarded national parks, refuges, and forests in Alaska by signing the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.
The conspiracy theory of secret Nazi 's base in Antarctica What people think of when they hear that there is a secret Nazi 's base in Antarctica? What people are doing at the location? Why did the Nazi want to build it there if they even did? Who is in control of Antarctica and makes the decision? What did the base in Antarctica do during the war?
Humans are unable to survive a trip through the Ice Wall because the temperature approaches absolute zero the deeper into the wall one treks (“The Ice Wall” 1). Similarly to the round Earth theory, layers of gases known as the Atmolayer cover the Flat Earth. An invisible barrier contains the Atmolayer preventing “the various gases from flowing out into space” (“Atmolayer” 1). A combination of research from Dr. Samuel Birley Rowbotham and Albert Einstein was used to develop this Flat Earth layout named the Neo-Classical Model (“Neo-Classical Model” 1). The ideas accepted by the Flat Earth Society are based on decades of scientific research and observation by Rowbotham.
The closest extant relative of the Columbian and other mammoths is the Asian elephant. Reaching 4 m (13 ft) at the shoulders and 8–10 tonnes (18,000–22,000 lb) in weight, the Columbian mammoth was one of the largest species of mammoth. It had long, curved tusks and four molars, which were replaced six times during the lifetime of an individual. It most likely used its tusks and trunk like modern elephants—for manipulating objects, fighting, and foraging. Bones, hair, dung and stomach contents have been discovered, but no preserved carcasses are known.
In a total of eight different studies, David provides ways that humans will be affected severely in the future. In the first scenario, David described how our “Doomsday” vault containing our seeds and plant life in case of a major catastrophic was flooded due to the ice melting. He describes how the permafrost containing trillions of tons of carbon could be released into the air due to permafrost thaw. It mentions how this release of carbon could turn into methane which is worse and causes more heating. The second scenario is what David calls a “Heath Death.” In this scenario, David describes how just a slight change of 11-12 degrees in temperature could kill nearly half of the world’s population.
North West of Iceland is the strait of Denmark, to the North East if the greenland sea, and to the East is the is the Norwegian sea. There are many different landforms in iceland that have formed over a long period of time. There are mountains and mountain ranges made from volcanoes. There are also rivers that make beautiful waterfalls. There is a giant plateau in iceland that is 2000 feet high.
We use machines to burn fossil fuels and drill underground, which we couldn’t do without tech. We puncture the bottoms of lakes, creating leakages of methane into millions of underwater and atmospheric ecosystems, warming the atmosphere, and ultimately, warming the entire planet. This causes ice caps, snow-covered, and polar regions to melt,
North Dakota is the most rural of all the states, with farms covering more than 90% of the land. It’s known for its rich oil from fosses that were left behind after Lake Agassiz dried up. In the book North Dakota History by Neil Howe, he explains how during the last Ice Age, northern North America was covered by a glacier, which alternately advanced and deteriorated with variations in the climate. Before the Ice Age, North Dakota had a sub-tropical climate much like Florida is today. This continental ice sheet covered much of central North America between 30,000 and 10,000 years ago (Howe 33).
It started at the North Pole and it stretched to the 37th parallel which is along the southern edges of Virginia, Kentucky, and Missouri. The estimated area it covered was around five million square miles, and at parts it could reach up to ten thousand feet thick (Britannica). Even though the lakes in Michigan are proof that the Laurentide Ice Sheet melted, it did so very slowly, and there is even some proof that our ancestors lived in the area underneath where the great lakes are today (draining the great lakes). As it retreated, it carved, and under all of that weight compacted the crust enough to create at least five basins that are now the Great lakes. This created an area in where twenty percent of the world’s fresh surface water resides (TED ED).
The arctic tundra biome is a biome located in the arctic circle, in such places as north Canada, Russia, Alaska, Iceland, Finland, and most of Greenland. Covering approximately 20% of the Earth 's land surface, the arctic tundra biome is the coldest biome on Earth, with winter temperatures averaging at -34°C (-30°F), and summer temperatures of around 3-12°C (37-54°F). The moderate summer temperature allows this icy biome to sustain life. Yearly precipitation is a low 15-25 centimetres (6-10 inches). The ground in a tundra biome has very low nutrients,which accounts for the low amount of plant life.
However, the United States government is one of the few countries that actually has the money to continue importing oil from foreign nations. Why not continue to use it? Markey states that even if we were to use our own land for the drilling of oil, “it would only reduce our foreign oil dependence from 56 percent today to 50 percent 10 years from now” (Markey, 2001, para 18). In a nutshell, this is logically not a big enough percentage difference to make us even want to consider drilling on American soil with the immense possibility that this attack on the environment would kill and/or relocate hundreds of thousands of wildlife creatures and nature’s plant
