California may have gained statehood on September 9, 1850, but the roots that the early Spaniards created, has made California the mecca it is today. California is very diverse state it has desserts, mountains, and is next to the ocean. This creates endless possibilities for growth in many different economy drive industries to flood this great state. The major industries that have made California this mecca are the movie studio system, the aerospace industry, and the agriculture business. In my option the most important industry in California is the agriculture business, I will try not to bore you with my two cents on this topic. Agriculture is a major industry for the Golden State. With 80,500 farms and ranches, California agriculture is a
In the article “Water Worries Grow in the Desert Southwest,” Rice (2013) talks about climate changes and causes that impact on water in the desert Southwest. The author mentioned Native Americans, they used canals and dams to bring water since 10 centuries. Today, there are 56 million Americans growing up in Southwest and they have region’s natural dryness. Also, Arizona state has less rain every year around 7.5 inches. In addition, Colorado River is most important to help 30 million people in Southwest. In 1970 to 2011, it has warming at a rate of 0.6 degrees in the Arizona state. The author mentioned three sources such as Colorado River, the Salt and Verde River are helping to deliver water for 100 years. Climate change has impact in this
Yellowstone National Park, established March 1, 1862, by U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant, was and still is the United States’ largest national park. Yellowstone is located mostly in Wyoming with parts of it lying in Idaho and Montana. Popular geological attractions in Yellowstone include thousands of geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pots, and waterfalls. Yellowstone is home to many varieties of wildlife including the endangered grizzly bear, gray wolf, wolverine, and bald eagle. Yellowstone is home to many plant species including plants that depend on the park’s thermal features. Over time parts of the park have been destroyed by fires and earthquakes, but Yellowstone National Park, its plants, animals and geological features survive and
What is it like growing up in Texas? I have people always state that their home state is the best place to grow up, but I can honestly say where I grew up was the best. We had some much to do and so much to see. Texas has some amazing history in almost every city. I was born March 20, 1991, on the first day of spring. It was a sixty-nine degrees day. I weighed in at seven pounds two and a half ounces. Texas usually has fantastic weather, so growing up there was a dream. When I say fantastic weather I mean we had every season in one day. Sometimes it got crazy but I would not have it any other way.
Do you ever think about the negatives and positives of driving in the winter and summer? Driving is
A flood is a when water flows over dry land. There are several things that can result in floods. Rain, obviously, but believe it or not, droughts can, too. A drought is a long period of dry weather, especially one injurious to crops. Droughts can result in floods because during prolonged spells, especially, they will deplete the ground’s source of water, leaving the top layer extraordinarily dry. Then, when it rains, that top layer acts as a natural barrier, preventing the water from soaking in. This can result in
As previously explained, all other effects start with the loss of water. Drought is usually caused by a little amount of rainfall, which is caused by rising temperatures. “For example, A Desert Sun analysis of national climate data from more than 30
Moving from California to Indiana caused me to change my way of living. To start, I moved from San Jose, California to Whiteland, Indiana in the middle of my third grade year at the beginning of December. I recall thinking that Indiana was dull and bland, both in the weather and environment. Previously, my friends in California told me that all Indiana had to offer was corn. Of course, being a third grader, I believed them. However, I knew Indiana had something that California did not. Indiana had snow. I stayed hopeful because I have always wanted to see snow. Coincidentally, it snowed the day after we moved. I was astonished because I had never seen flurries of snow before. It was stunningly beautiful with the fluffy white
Texas, also known as the Lone Star State has four major regions. Its vast land contains Mountains and Basins, Great Plains, North Central Plains, and Coastal Plains regions. These four regions are rich in historical, political, and cultural points of interest. This shaped Texas to what it is today.
The Dust Bowl delivered a crazy drought to the fields of the Great Plains and crushed the economy during the Great Depression. Massive dust clouds destroyed just about everything from crops, farms, and the lives and jobs of thousands of farmers. This resulted in even more economic despair during the Great Depression. The Dust Bowl happened in the 1930s in the Great Plains due to farmer’s poor cultivation techniques. Although the farmers cultivation options didn 't work, the federal government really helped them out with after five years went by.
San Diego and Phoenix have very similar winter climates, although the summers are very different. It gets a little colder at night in Phoenix, especially at night due to the lack of the ocean's marine effect. Rainfall patterns are similar as well in the winter, it's San Diego's rainy season as well as it's Phoenix's rainy season too. But San Diego averages more rain in the winter than Phoenix solely because of the coastal location giving San Diego ocean evaporation.
The climate classification system I choose to implement is based on two variables the Average Annual Precipitation in Texas  and the Average Annual temperature in Texas . The average annual precipitation is broken down in to four range; 0 to 26 inches of rainfall, 26 to 38 inches of rainfall, 38 to 50 inches of rainfall and lastly rainfall above 50 inches. The Average Annual temperature map is broken down in 5 ranges starting from 50 F-55 F, 55 F – 60 F, 60 F – 65 F, 65 F-70 F and finally 70 F above. By paring the range of the temperature map and the precipitation map give me 14 category to show both the rainfall by inches and temperature by Fahrenheit, with this information I can discern on where the best place to plant plants or crops
Over the last several hundred years, many scientists have proven that Climate change, or the other name, “Global Warming” that people think is politically incorrect, is a major problem in our future if we do not act to reverse its effects. One place around the world that has experienced these effects of this world issue is California. California has been in a major drought for several years now, and looks to continue for several years to come if nothing is done to mitigate the effects of climate change. The drought in California caused the increase in wildfire activity and low water levels, which as a result has caused tree mortality across California.
The rapid destruction of woodlands or removal of trees from forests is known as deforestation. Every year, vast areas of forests are cleared to make way for agriculture and development.
The winters are very cold and dry with the summers being very hot and humid. In southern China, they have monsoon seasons and are prone to typhoons which have a costly effect on agriculture. West China has the most dramatic climate changes from winter to summer, with temperatures ranging from 12 degrees in winter to 91 degrees in summer months. Chinese weather can make life in China pleasant or very hard depending on the time of year and how well the population is prepared for the changes.
