In the two stories “The lorax” and “Easter Island” there are lots of differences and similarities. Both stories have environmental issues dealing with trees and air quality. The environment in each story became a wasteland and was eventually polluted by trash. Once-ler in the lorax story and the Polynesians in the Easter island story tried to protect the environment but both failed to do so, all natural resources were lost and everything went downhill from there. First, in “The lorax” an environmental issue was the air quality.
Colbert made the tax collection system more efficient - at the beginning of his tenure in office, only about 10 % of the taxes collected ended up in the royal treasury; the fugure was raised to 85 % (taxes had been "farmed", i.e. were collected by agents who kept a part of them.” Colbert’s plan was to limit foreign industry and focus more in domestic industry to help reduce the debt and bring more money. Along with this Colbert implanted a tax system that rose significantly over time. According to World history at KMLA, “In a set of measures summarily referred to as MERCANTILISM, Colbert raised IMPORT TARIFFS to discourage imports
Although it thrived, it fell around 476 C.E because of major issues. Poor military, mistrust in the government, and the overwhelming size lead to the fall of the Roman Empire. Poor military decisions contributed to the downfall of the Roman Empire. In C 450 CE, the Roman military leaders made a poor decision by letting the military decide on taking away armor (Document 3). This caused more soldiers to be killed in battle because they didn’t have the proper protection.
As stated before, the Mongols were ordered to destroy the farmlands to make room for pasture, which led to the starvation of many people. Another problem was that many foreigners were accepted into Mongol controlled regions, which exposed natives to diseases that they had never experienced; this led to the death of many people, whose immune systems could not keep
Lastly coming from Commonly Asked Questions and facts, “about 1.2 billion people in the world rely on the rainforest for their survival, directly or indirectly”. By not using the rainforest we can destroy so many lives. So, although it causes damages, people will be in big problems without the Amazon being able to be
Many marine mammals mistake these for food (Greer, Abigail). Plastic kills fish, birds, marine mammals, sea turtles, destroys habitats, and affects animal mating rituals, which can result in devastating results, such as wiping out an entire species (“How Ocean Pollution Impacts Marine Life-and All of
The states believed that the Kulaks are trying to derail them. Those who do not hand the grain over are now known as an enemy to the state. On the other hand, the peasants were angry and did not trust the state or each other. Often times, some peasants would rat on who hid grain causing a clash between both parties. The Kulaks had very little to eat and endured a great famine killing 3-8 million people, yet the state did nothing to help them.
Toussaint L’Ouverture International Airport, only airport in Haiti, was unusable due to damage in control tower and runway and ports like Port-au-Prince seaport were also unusable due to falls of container cranes. 60% of government buildings such as Supreme court, the Natioanl Assembly and National Palace were severely damaged. Around 4,000 people who were imprisoned in the Prison Civile de Port-au-Prince escaped during the earthquake. Secondary impacts were the lack of food, homelessness and landslides caused by liquidation. There was a cholera outburst due to the lack of access to clean water and this killed over 8.,231 people.
The artificial tree may have many pros, but it can have many cons as well. My family has been using the same artificial tree for years.

Both outcomes were nearly the same, and both locations ended up nearly in ruins, with no resources to speak of. However, the Lorax got to this point through a combination of pollution and waste going into the air and the water supply, and carelessness in the use of natural resources, especially Truffula trees. The people of Easter Island ended up destroyed because of their greediness and failure to organize society in a way that saved resources, and also their use of food supply and of trees. The two groups had different uses for resources, though. In the Lorax, the trees were used for the Onceler’s profit and for making Thneeds, and the people of Easter Island used trees to make canoes, make wooden ramps, sleds and rollers for transportation of materials, and for household uses like building homes and for
Intro: In the middle of 1788 and 1900, the population of indigenous people of Australia was decreased by ninety percent. Three main reasons for this were the loss of life due to new diseases, loss of land and the impact of settlement. Paragraph 1: Loss of life due to disease One of the major consequences for the indigenous people of Australia was the arrival of European diseases. Epidemic diseases spread rapidly such as the following, Chickenpox, Smallpox, Influenza, Typhoid and Measles.

Americans spend over $1 billion dollars on trees every year, Artificial trees would nearly eradicate the billion dollar crisis. Some people say the artificial trees ruin tradition, that may be true, but did the invention of the television not ruin the tradition of listening to the radio as a family. The same could be said about cars, they “ruined” the tradition of riding
The Struggle Through the Dust Bowl The Dust Bowl left the Great Plains with dry land and nowhere to farm. This led many people to move in search of jobs or new technology purchased using credit. Although everyone struggled, African Americans took the hit harder, as they were discriminated and lost jobs to whites. All residents of the Great Plains were affected, but African Americans were most significantly impacted. In the 1930s, a drought struck the Great Plains, leaving the United States in an economic and agricultural depression.
