Most people in Honduras live in the north where most of the factories for work are located, but indigenous people and anyone else living in the rural areas deal with most of the effects of deforestation. When you remove large areas of forest the climate will begin to change and effect anyone living around it. Since Honduras is a poor country it is harder to protect yourself from environmental changes. Also, by deforestation the water sources they use are no longer protected and leave rural and urban areas without good drinking water. Illegal logging is still a rising problem, because those doing so are not having to pay taxes on sales to other countries, and this is taking away from all wood sellers in the Honduras community.
They have an abundance of natural harbors in which fishing is a primary resource of income on the island, much more than farming. Although Haiti is a beautiful country in sight, the infrastructure of the country is failing due all the earthquakes since the early 2000’s (Lawless et al.,
The Republic of Haiti is inhabited in the island of Hispaniola, west of the Dominican Republic. It is positioned in between the North Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Haiti’s population almost entirely descends from African slaves after gaining independence from France in 1804 (World Population Review, 2018). However, centuries later, Haiti has been faced with political, social, economic and environmental difficulties including numerous natural disasters adding to the ongoing chronic poverty and health issues (World Population Review, 2018).
El Salvador is a very densely populated country and it’s known as the land of volcanoes. My favorite thing about paragraph two is that El Salvador is the smallest Latin American country. My favorite thing about paragraph 34 is that in El Salvador the temperature there is always above 70 and sometime it's in the 60’s. My favorite things about paragraph four is that they cleared the forestland to make more room for agriculture and that several different species of trees like the balsa,cedar,coconut all grow across the coast. El Salvador is known as the country that steals the heart of those travelers as they visit central America.
In terms of benefits the Columbian Exchange only positively affected the lives of the Europeans. They gained many things such as, crops, like maize and potatoes, land in the Americas, and slaves from Africa. On the other hand the negative impacts of the Columbian Exchange are the spread of disease, death, and slavery. In document 3b it states, “... an epidemic broke out, a sickness of pustules… very many people died of them, and many just starved to death; starvation reigned and no one took care of each other.”
Nearly one half of the world 's population is affected by environmental poverty, however, only fourteen percent in the United States fall in line with poverty (Mark). The poor, Hispanics, and blacks suffer the most from pollution, health, and hazardous waste issues, unlike people from other races and social classes. Taking for granted good food, clean water, and other resources necessary to survive, wealthy citizens forget that others struggle. Some areas in America are deficient in these basic resources that are necessary to live. Driving through different communities, it is clear that certain areas lack proper health needs.
Analysis of “Sometimes the Earth is Cruel” January 14, 2010 Leonard Pitts published “Sometimes the Earth is cruel.” The focus of this article is to point out the hardships that occur in Haiti. Haiti has been unlucky in being the center of natural disasters. “Sometimes the Earth is Cruel” illustrates the repeated devastation that occurs in Haiti, most countries’ citizens’ inability to truly understand the devastation, and the survivor’s necessity to recover and live on.
The Congo basin supports a large rainforest ecosystem, which contributes on a large scale to stable the world climate. But this ecosystem is endangered due to the vast wealth of resources and accompanied illegal mining activities, particularly in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Diverse case studies about Congo’s Kahuzi-Biega Park, Okapi Reserve and Virunga Park ascertain that deforestation, water pollution as well as hunting and poaching are the most common environmental impacts. Observations show that only approximately 20 % of mammals are still alive in some heritage areas. These impacts lead to a high loss of biodiversity and results in a dramatically change in rainforest ecosystem services.
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
Both the ocean waves and hurricanes accelerate erosion, which is a main cause to the marshes disappearing. Something New Yorkers should realize is that "80% of oil and natural gases produced in the U.S. travels through our marshes" as according to page 12. America 's economy could go so wrong if the marshes the oil processes through suddenly disappears. Also, a huge percentage of marine life loves in Louisiana 's marshes.
On January 12, 2010 a 7.0 earthquake hit the coast of Haiti along the capital of Port of Prince leaving the country in devastation and ruin, along with over 200,000 deaths. The country, already poverty ridden, faced many obstacles including families needing to provide the essential elements of food, water, and housing. Haiti, already known to be a poor nation, struggled further with economic issues along with the basic necessities of life. Haiti is known for its rich, wonderful coffee that is grown in the mountains and known to be its finest export. It has typically been sold or smuggled to the Dominican Republic, but with the devastation of the earthquake, Haiti is unable to export its product to other areas.
The effect of agricultural runoff in the Chesapeake Bay watershed It is almost impossible to turn on the news without hearing about the turmoil of pollution, and how it is negatively affecting life worldwide. But have you stopped to think about how pollution is directly affecting your daily lives? Water is the heartbeat of all life, and without it nothing could thrive. Odds are, if you live within the northern mid-atlantic you get some or all of your water from the Chesapeake Bay, or one of its watersheds. Years of agricultural runoff from large industrial farms has lead to contamination of the Bay, endangering not only the lives of the wildlife, but also our own.
