Ways it can affect people is when it when wildfires start and the animals or who ever is in that place couldn’t escape and the species with their habitat could be destroyed. Also Melting tundra, rising sea levels is a threat to people who live near the ocean since flooding and tsunami could happen. We all know that tsunami can kill over thousands of people.. Another negative effects climate change that scientists discovered is that the ice is breaking up way too early, and that the plants and animal ranges have shifted. Also, they discovered trees are flowering sooner. Last, there is the loss of sea ice and the more intense heat waves.= which can be a problem in the future.
Joud El Dweiri Ms.Maleha 11B English May 11, 2017 Climate change; a hoax or the dreadful truth? Climate change is a shift in global weather patterns including temperature, precipitation, humidity, and wind. Climate patterns play an important role in forming natural ecosystems and human economies. This subject has been a topic of discussion for many years, but not for the reason one might think. The argument is not about how to help the Earth or what we are doing wrong, but about if climate change even exists.
Similar to how the concept of providing houses went from landscape plots to vertical buildings, the process of farming can also be optimised similarly to cater for maximum people. This can also assist in declining a major contributor to climate change, deforestation. The process of farming can be done in urban area. Old, abandoned buildings can be used as a farming factory. If urban cities started having their own farms in the locality, transportation of foods from far locations would have a major decrease.
Results of the removal of coyotes seem unclear but in some cases, different length of some control can produce various results. In the short-term coyote removal efforts which last about less than 6 months have shown that there is no increase in the prey base where the long-term which has an intensive removal of coyotes shows that there is an alteration to the species composition within the ecosystem (Henke S., n.d.). The removal of coyotes is needed because of the side effects they give to the environment as they are able to damage a variety of resources that includes livestock, poultry, crops, and sometimes prey on pets and pose a threat to public health and safety because they can act as carriers of rabies (Coyotes, n.d.). The Norway rats and the root rats are the two common species that are known to cause problems in the U.S. (Lupo J., n.d.). For the removal of these two rodents species is essential due to the damage it can cause and the disease they carry.
William Cronon’s Changes in the Land: Indians, Colonists, and the Ecology of New England Interprets and analyzes the changing conditions in New England’s wildlife communities such as plant and animal that happened to shift from Native American dominance to European dominance. Cronon explains that the transition from Indian to European dominance in New England entailed important changes, commonly known to historians, on how these people organized their lives, but it also involves basic reorganizations, less well known to historians, in the region’s plant and animal communities (Cronon, xv). As the distant world and occupants of Europe were bit by bit introduced to North America’s ecosystem, the limits between the two were obscured. Cronon utilizes an assortment of proof to clarify the circumstances that prompted the dramatic ecological consequences following European contact with New England such as deforestation and different understandings that result in confusion. For the newly arriving European settlers, the landscape held symbolic meaning and value to both environmental and economic.
The book “The Weather Makers: The History and Future Impact of Climate Change” written by Tim Flanner pertains to predicting the global warming consequence on earth and species. In chapter 9, the unraveling world, the author talks about global warming and how it can have a long-lasting and far-reaching impact on our lives. He points out the substantial and rapid change of the climate and its connection with the effects of El Nino and La Nina are also uncovered. Climate change can be a major contributor as to where species live and how they interact. The changes can also be observed by the changing migration patterns of these species.
Warming can force animal species to move to higher latitudes in order to survive where the temperature are more condusive. As for sea level rise, salt water will flow into freshwater system are causes death of some species, thus removing removing these species from the existing food chain. Global warming changes the timing of seasonal life such as the migration of bird species and butterfly species and the blooming of flowers. With climate change due to global warming, many species are facing extinction. All these species are particularly climate sensitive especially those animals that are adapted to mountain environment, sea-ice habitat like ringed seals, and cold-water fish such as
However, according to Wagar, using wildlife in tourism is as an experience rather than a tangible product and in the future, more and more people will use this resources and become abuse because this tourism can be a factor leading to be consumptive of the wildlife resource such as gaming hunting or fishing. In this article, it is listed some wildlife which are discovered by explorers such as fairy penguins on Phillip Island, short-tailed shearwaters or cormorants with the Royal albatross colony. Furthermore, according to Duffus and
Now that there is less habitats they are traveling closer to cities and are getting comfortable with humans. Now that there is more wolves, there needs to be more food and there isn’t enough deer or rodents so the wolves go for the livestock. Also with the wolf population rising that means there is a decrease in the deer population witch upsets many hunters. Since wolves were almost extinct in the 1930s there population has only rose and is getting bigger every single year (Zhang). Now that the population had rose a great amount since then a lot of hunters and farmers think that we should be able to hunt them and regulate their
If we had pieces of land reserved just for the animals, it can provide a similar home for them to live without the interference of humans. This can help slow down the process of animals dying off due to habitat lost. Another solution would be to restrict the amount of people who move to the cities. The slum rate is higher in cities when they didn’t have any restrictions on people moving to the city.Restricting the number of people who can move to the city can decrease the amount of slums in the cities which can also decrease the poverty rate.Also restricting the population in the cities can give the government some time to fix problems that happen in these cities because they don’t have as many people to deal with in order to fix the
