Abstract The report shows two important water problems in China current water environment--water pollution and uneven water resource, and how to resolve water crisis of uneven resource. Because of the pressure of water pollution and uneven water resource, China has become a water shortage country. The solution of the shortage of water resources will be found on the Internet. My hypothesis is that damming can be an effective way to solve the uneven water resources. China has successfully implemented the South to North Water Diversion Project, so that the dam can be suitable for China 's sustainable development.
The Han relied heavily on agriculture and thought that tools and water systems were necessary to reduce labor. Documents 2 and 5 show the attitude of each society towards technological development. Doc. 2, written by a Han government official in the first century BC, demonstrates that the Chinese wanted to improve the quality of the tools to increase the productivity and efficiency. On the other hand,
Confucian scholar-administrators held a growing campaign which tried to convince Tang rulers that the Buddhist monastic establishment posed economic challenges to the imperial order. This campaign was held because the Tang had lost huge amounts of revenue because monastic lands were not taxed. 4. Describe the innovations and socioeconomic developments accounted for the widespread prosperity of the Tang/Song era? The widespread prosperity of the Tang/Song era was made possible through innovations and socioeconomic developments such as canal building, Chinese junks, deposit shops and flying money.
A generic definition for flood is something like this: It is an overflow of a quite large amount of water that goes beyond the normal level at a given area which is normally considered a dry land. But this simple definition hardly captures the picture of the disaster a flood can become and the damage it can wreak on a locality. With rapidly increasing unpredictability of the weather patterns globally and a number of natural and man-made factors interfering with the environment, a flood is a more common scenario today than ever. It is now considered as the most costly natural disaster too, as the recurring damages done by the floods across the country is putting a heavy toll on the financial planning and estimations nationally. With increasing
The history of how China introduces iodized salt to prevent the multiple disabling disorders associated with iodine deficiencies represents one such program. The success determines the appropriateness of the technology, the political, and the financial support to start up.
A drought is an occurrence where there is very little rainfall, which results in a shortage of water. Drought can last up to ten years in certain places, especially desert areas. Droughts are extremely difficult to predict, and produce cracked land. They are very dangerous in places with little food and little water. Droughts can also affect farmers, due to it being so hot that their plants die.
“The concept of Qi is based on the ancient Chinese initial understanding of natural phenomena.” (Acuhealing.com, 2011) People in ancient China observed that some visible and touchable substances in nature would transform into another invisible and formless substances, namely water transform into fog under evaporation. The observation drives them realize the existence of qi. Besides, in the Yin-yang theory, they believe that all the things are in yin and yang cooperation system, and have yin side and yang side. And when yin embrace yang in a balanced way can soften qi’s movement and calm any possible fluctuation. Accordingly and based on observation and investigation accumulate by hundreds of years, generally speaking, rather than just air, gas or flowing, qi is a key, vital form of energy, significantly motivating the earth and
“The intense heat of the prairie caused wood to shrink, and wagon wheels had to be soaked in rivers at night to keep their iron rims from rolling off during the day...Emigrant’s lips blistered and split in the dry air, and their only remedy was to rub axle grease on them.” The dry and hot air had the time to go west even greater than it should had because of little annoyances. The emigrants on the Oregon trail faced the most hassle trying to survive and endure in the west because of pestilence, misfortune, and climate. The Chinese emigrant working on the transcontinental railroad had a hard time as well on the trail. They faced bad pay, racism, and hard work. However, the emigrants on the trail went into the unknown.
Due to the saltwater transition, and the filth within the water, the water was the reason for many diseases. These were diseases that the English were not used to. For the English to be infected, it must have been awful with the lack of resources the English collected. “The Lost Colony and Jamestown Droughts,” represents the amount of rain received every year based on the average amount of rainfall. It also shows the droughts that happened in those few years.
These crops aren’t always plentiful due to the desert climates in most countries. In Africa, many farmers rely on the yearly Nile flooding to grow their crops. In most South American countries, many people collect water from the rain or creeks, which is not healthy for them to drink causing illness and death. Diseases that many suffer from include: measles, malaria, and pneumonia. The age group most affected are children up to the age of five.
