Water bottles, a major controversy in the world of recycling and on the other hand litter. Do you know what happens in our oceans and world when plastic is thrown out or littered? There are many dangerous and harmful effects when this happens. Water bottles are creating a pile of trash in the ocean and on land, and to top it all off we’re the ones who started and created this disaster. I think that plastic water bottles should be banned because it’s pricey and expensive to the economy and to the public, they are lethal to animals, and plastic water bottles are polluting our environment.
Task 1 M1 Describe the scientific principles behind each of the three procedure above. Vacuum filtration is a procedure when a sold needs separating from a solvent to react the mixture. Then the mixture of a solid is measured through the filtration paper in a Buhner funnel. The liquid is drained through the funnel into the flask. Equipment • Filter paper • Buhner funnel • Tubing • Clean solvent • Disposable dropper Method 1.
Throughout the latter part of the 20th century, Pesticides started being used in agriculture and crop farming. The effects of these pesticides greatly hurt species in the United States. For example, some of these pesticides weakened egg shells of Americas iconic bird, the bald eagle and as a result, baby eagle eggs often cracked while they were still developing, killing the eagle. So congressmen went back into congress and amended the act of 1966 and in 1973, they created the Endangered Species Act of 1973. This act amended things that had been stated in the previous act of 1966.
Primary treatment involves the process of sedimentation. This process removed suspended solids form the waste. Secondary treatment removes and dissolves biodegradable matter from waste. Tertiary treatment involves the removal of any other contaminate present in the waste. 3.
Our environment had been endangered of becoming unsafe, threatening, and even deadly. “The water we drink, the food we eat, the very air that we breathe, are threatened with pollution. Our parks are overcrowded, our seashores overburdened. Green fields and dense forests are disappearing.” Johnson stresses that the health of people and environment is at risk because Americans have allowed for the destruction of nature to get out of hand, and causing both the Earth and human health at risk of becoming an ugly America, due to –as Johnson references- the “Ugly American” (“Great Society”). Less than a month after Johnson’s speech The Clean Air Act was passed and The Wilderness Act of 1964 was in action in efforts to control air pollution and protect land from destruction of human activity (“Major Great Society”).Johnson puts an emotional touch over the situation of nature and its importance towards his audience by saying, “And once man can no longer walk with beauty or wonder at nature his spirit will wither and his sustenance be wasted.” If Americans continue to pollution the environment will in turn become an element of disaster for the well-being of people and their surroundings (“Great
Climate Change’s Effects on The Mojave Desert The problem known as climate change is causing a domino effect of devastating blows to the Mojave Desert’s ecosystem. Resulting in damage to plants and animals. Given this, if not changed now the effects will damage humans too. Sadly, it starts the pain by first taken out the most valuable source to any living creature: water. First the plants begin to die.
One of the greatest case studies discussed in class regarding the impact of climate change is the modern day topography of Madagascar. While the initial cause of the desertification of Madagascar was caused by over logging and the exploitation of natural resources, the even further damage was caused by climate change and can be seen as an example of what could hypothetically happen in areas with dying vegetation. There are areas of Madagascar are completely eroded away due to the lack of trees and trees that grow back are immediately cut down again to be used by the population of Madagascar. This erosion has led to desertification of the land. Water that does come in contact with the land is unable to stay in the land because there is no vegetation to catch it - it turns into runoff which leads to landslides and mudslides.
Humans are therefore putting their numerous wants before the needs of the animals, and that is making a carnage of the animals and the milieu, which humans need to survive, whether they acknowledge it, or not. An additional piece of evidence supporting the assertion comes from an article named “People Need Nature.” A segment of the article states,”When forests are cleared, they emit CO2 back into the atmosphere and put humanity [and the planet] on a dangerous collision course with the worst [of] climate change.” This shows to the reader that since the planet is seeing appalling deforestation rates all across the world, this is taking a tremendous toll on the environment. It also reveals that this formidable climate change could become a stark reality if humans continue to focus on their self-centered needs before the vital needs of the planet. Thus, humans still concentrate on
Oil spills cause many different issues to animals, food chains, and people. We need to help prevent oil spills. Oil spills have many effects on all kinds of animals. Oil destroys important features on animals. The NOAA states, “Oil destroys the insulating ability of fur-bearing mammals, such as sea otters, and the water repellency of a bird 's feathers, thus exposing these creatures to the harsh elements,” (https://oceanservice.noaa.gov).
The global production of animal products aids in the destruction of water quality worldwide. FAO (2009) mentions that the water quality is tainted through the release of nitrogen, phosphorous, pathogens and other substances which goes into water ways and groundwater mainly from manure production in intensive livestock. Accordingly, poor manure management results in the pollution of surface and ground water. Air quality is also impacted by meat production; meat production contributes to the level of ammonia, which is released from manure and urine, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide and other harmful substances. Samer (2016) refers to hydrogen sulphide as “an aggressive trace gas”, it is emitted in large amounts after manure is broken down anaerobically during sometime in storage.
I think that you should reduced the Alberta’s oil sands. For instance it 's causing global warming, which is bad for our environment and future generations. My first reason is that its ruining homes for animals and birds, for example according to research oil sands are located in breeds grounds which is a place for birds. My second reason is that its bad for the envorimoent because its ruining our foress, and seas with the smell when it mixeses with water.
The article states that there is a rapid decline in the population of sea otters, the mammals found along the coast of California to Alaska. The article claims that the reason for the declination is because of environmental pollution and provides two reasons of support. However, the speaker refutes that the dwindling is due to predation. First, the reading claims that environmental pollution is the most likely cause because oil rigs found along the coast cause pollution to a greater extent. Further, the increased in chemical levels decreases the immune strength of the sea otters which indirectly leads to death.
The toxic chemicals released from extraction were poisoning clean water sources. This lead to increasing cases of cancer, hyperthyroidism, lupus, and renal failure in people located in areas near the present pipeline. These effects clearly show the vast hazard this oil presents for the environment and society. In conclusion, as stated and proven throughout this essay, the Keystone pipeline creates many environmental issues. The Keystone pipeline should not be built because it endangers the environment and has the ability to create catastrophic damages through pollution and habitat desecration.
One more reason why a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico will not protect American jobs and reduce crime is because the wall will cut through the bridge of nature. On CBSN, Jeff Corwin state that, “Hundreds if not thousand of species rely on this natural movement of land.” What Jeff Corwin, who is a wildlife biologist is trying to say here is that this wall will affect our environment and ecosystem. This wall will cause destruction of habitat, loss of access to important resources, mortality caused by construction activity, migration routes blocked, and alteration of water flows. Someone else might argue that the animals can just simply find another route, but this is logically flawed because that route is part of the animal 's
Many people believe fracking is harmful to the environment because it pollutes the air and water and can possibly inject harmful chemicals in the earth. For many years scientists have studied the effects of hydraulic fracturing on water sources. With much controversy they say that hydraulic fracking is “subject to both federal
