I believe everyone present can agree that all of these issues exist and that humans have caused them. Many of us are concerned about the future of our planet and unless we can find a way of solving the problems then the environment will suffer. Everyone of us can do something to help slow down some of the damage. We cannot leave the problem-solving entirely to the experts – we all have a responsibility to our environment. We must learn to live in way that will sustain our world like learn to use our natural resources which include air, freshwater, forests, wildlife, farmland and seas without damaging them or wasting
Moyle (2014). The loss of these habitats also means the loss of important species to the food chain. The extinction of a species will disrupt an entire food chain, which then leads to extinctions of other species. With that chain of events it will ripple out to humans by eliminating species that are consumed daily. For many countries and communities of people fish is a main food source, without it they would starve.
Not only serious, but cruel and unnecessary. Every day, the number of animal casualties continue to escalate while the remaining population dwindles down to extinction. It's easy to dismiss this since we don't directly rely on some of these organisms. However, all aspects of the environment are connected in one way or another. An extinction of one species could threaten many other populations.
Animals swimming through foreign objects that don’t belong in their habitats is harmful for them. It puts them at risk for injury or even death. It is estimated that the plastic waste that is thrown away into seas every year can kill as many as 1,000,000 sea creatures (Leblanc 2017). This large number of animals being killed from an outside source has a good chance to upset the ecosystem that they are living in. There is a balance between the life in our oceans and when it is being affected by the plastic waste we are allowing to enter the oceans.
B. Plastic pollution is detrimental to most forms of marine-centric life. 1. “Approximately 100,000 marine creatures of nearly 300 species die each year from plastic consumption
Specifically, 80% of the pollution that’s in the ocean, is because of us. According to “The Oceans Are Drowning in Plastic - And No One is Paying Attention,” Jenna Jambeck said that if something is not done, the plastic in the ocean will double by 2025. 19 billion pounds of trash get dumped into the ocean each year! But out of all that garbage, plastic is the number one trash that is found in the ocean. Humans, we might not realize it, but, from our horrible actions, we have infected our waters with tons of trash.
The consequences lead to creating higher risk of extinction, which means there will no longer be that specific species exist on earth forever. According to Wendell Berry’s Home Economies, we can see that each economy represents different motives and cultures. Some economies lean towards allowing human to
If you could save your mothers life by walking a couple yards to the nearest trash can would you? Of course you would! Dumping plastics into our oceans is a huge problem for our environment and the people that live in it. Plastics are killing our marine life. According to a Biological Diversity website (https://www.biologicaldiversity.org/campaigns/ocean_plastics/), the author states that “Thousands of seabirds and sea turtles, seals and other marine mammals are killed each year after ingesting plastic.” People keep littering and that littering is killing precious marine life.
The planet has given out warning to human to indicate they are suffering from the behavior of human. For instance, when human choose to burn the plastic waste, it will infuse the air with toxic fumes. When the air is pollute by these toxic fumes, haze and air pollution will start to spread to the whole country. This can affect humans’ health and cause diseases such as cancer. Hence, No Plastic Bag Campaign not only benefits us as a human being in the aspect of health, but also helps to save the
We all know that the world ecosystem is a delicate balance, we also know that everything would fall apart if something as major as all animal kind went extinct. Cause it won’t just affect the animal chain but also affect the human race. Some plant and insect would be over populate and eventually human kind would be in more trouble other than animal extinct. Example animals are used by some plants to disperse seeds, some animals can eat other plant-eating animals, bees and other insects help pollinate flowers, earthworms aerate the soil so that the roots of plants can better obtain oxygen. One of the example is the remora
