The increase of population cannot keep up with the amount of water distributed. Some causes of water poverty are deaths from diseases caused by dirty water which are preventable. Although, lack of access to clean water continues to complicate life for people in poverty. At least 1.8 billion people use a drinking-water source contaminated with fesses. Water is a basic human right.
If they go through with the pipeline act it could kill many Native Americans because we need water to survive. Since our bodies need water to survive why would we put Native American live in danger? The government does not give them much the way it is. It seems like they constantly take things that they deserve. This Native American village is the poorest in the world.
Humans have become desensitized to pollution and degradation of the environment. The use of non-recyclable materials and disposing of waste irresponsibly has become something that we see every day, and we do not acknowledge as something harmful, because it does not directly affect us. However, there are both fictional and nonfictional examples of excessive use of resources and the misuse of materials that we do have, that can bring to the attention the damage that we are really causing. Two examples of this are Dr. Suess’ The Lorax, and Easter Island. Although very different, both the inhabitants of the town in the Lorax and Easter Island both contributed to degradation of the environment.
The Flint water crisis is an ongoing catastrophe that is currently affecting around 98,310 resident’s water supply in Michigan. What makes matters worse is that this particular area is already poverty stricken, with 41% of house hold income averaging around $24,862. (CNN) With that being said they don’t have the money to just up and move because of contaminated water. The people of Flint are suffering physically, mentally and emotionally because of the water crisis, the rising levels of lead found in the water have caused brain damage, hair loss and even cancer. The government has been taking an ample amount of time to resolve this matter, but have yet to come up with a solution to the problem.
Flint Water Crisis: I am interested in this topic because it has been in the news a lot in the past few years and I am curious as to why it has taken so long to be fixed because it still is not safe to this day. People have not had access to safe drinking water since 2014, and people should have indefinite access to safe drinking water. I would like learn more about what has been done by the government to help and why it has taken so long. This water crisis mainly violates is Article 25, which gives all people the right to an adequate standard of living, so that they can live a healthy life. Forced Slave Labor Today: I am interested in this topic because in school we learned that slavery was abolished in 1865, but it is still an issue today,
Because of his irritation, he does not see the mastermind of which Luke is serving. Even though the river is bad, it ends up giving back the bodies of Randy and Ruth back to their loved ones, showing some morality in its character. Luke’s action is influenced by the Tamassee and both can be seen as the antagonist of the story. Allen Hemphill and Herb Kowalsky are connected in the book because of their similar experience of losing their daughter. Kowalsky’s action are influenced by his loss of Ruth to the river.
The colonists barely made it through winter as they had assistance with all necessary aid by the six or seven people who were immune of diseases. Only fifty out of one hundred colonists have survived the time of suffering. In the article, “Colonial America Depended on the Enslavement of Indigenous People”, Marissa Fessenden states, “In 1637, they burned a village on the banks of the Mystic River in southeastern Connecticut, killing 400 to 700 Pequots.” The colonists had murdered natives by destroying their homes and territory. During the Pequot war, many of their tribe members were lost. This weakened the natives in war as they had very little men to send to resist the colonists.
With around 2 million individuals unaccounted for, more than 240,000 individuals are constrained into neighboring Chad, and an expected 480,000 individuals are slaughtered. Many have died or have been murdered, but what 's going on to the rest? Much of the population have fled their homes to camps in surrounding cities to live but are still being watched by the Janjaweed army outside the camps. In 2004, the House and Senate proclaimed the circumstances in Darfur genocide, but Bashir and the army later denied the events ever happening even with so many people unaccounted for. In 2009, Basliar became the first sitting president to be indicted by the International Criminal courts for instructing a mass murder upon a specific group of people.
But when they take the water resources of certain villages or even countries there is a deep social and justice issues that affects everyone in that community. There should never be a case where you take from one to provide for the other, without somehow benefitting the lesser one. The problem is that many times, the water is not even affordable for the people that is being taken away from. Company should never own a body of water in the first place. Water is a communal resource, it should be protected by everyone.
Places all over the world, especially in developing countries are suffering from contaminated water. However, to keep this proposal narrowed down, and because of time consumption, focusing on places in the U.S will be most appropriate. (Good!) In 2014, the state of Michigan decided to switch the cities’ water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River because of doing this there was a major environmental issue that had our nation shocked.
