Endangered specie populations in Mexico Introduction: Humans have drastically modified wildlife by polluting the earth we live in. Pollution is one of the major insidious threats to the environment, it ranges from obvious action, such as dumping in rivers and lakes to sprayed undetected chemicals. However, if the effect is permanent or short term the outcome does not change. Pollution changes the balance of ecosystems which causes numerous animals to become extinct. For example, the Bald eagle, peregrine falcon, and brown pelican all became endangered or extinct prior to scientists finding out that the chemical DDT, a chemical used largely in the United States as a pesticide.
It is like not knowing what a volcano is and then going and mining on it. They could explode with all of the chemicals that it is filled with from the smoke that the hydrothermal vent blows. The smoke that the hydrothermal vent is a yellow and black color. Mining the hydrothermal vents can make it so that very bad things can happen to our earth. All of the countries should finish the studies on hydrothermal vents and then start
The booms and skimmers, though, tended to get clogged by the thick oil. Chemical cleanup was also given a trial run by the U.S. Coast Guard. However, the current of the water was not enough to evenly distribute the dispersants that were supposed to break down the oil and it only added to the amount of pollutants in the Sound (EPA). It is found in recent studies that on select beaches in the sound are still polluted by large amounts of remaining oil deposits (Liszka 1-30). In the end, the Exxon Valdez oil spill was an expensive disastrous accident that continues to affect the people, company, and environment.
Pollution is a large and obvious problem when drilling for oil. Drilling gives off air pollution as well as carbon discharges--this is very bad for the environment. Another con is the possibility of an environmental hazard such as an oil spill. Oil spills can cause harm to people in the area, the environment itself, and marine life (GreenGarage). Along with those problems, due to an oil spill, there is also the increased possibility of a fire, and/or explosion.
Not only does do offshore drilling rigs pollute the air but they also pollute the oceans and create a deadly environment for marine life and reefs. This shows how one small mistake made by oil drilling companies is extremely dangerous to the environment and could even wipe out populations of marine life which can create dead zones. Majority of pollution comes from storing toxic oils that are dangerous to the oceans. The amount of air pollutants is not that much compared to other contributors of air pollution but they all add up and will slowly destroy our
But the health and environmental risks heavily outweigh the pros. They pump a water mixture into the wells which includes carcinogens which could seep into vital water sources also the water alone that they pump into the ground alone wastes to much and water being the most precious resource. on the planet we should conserve it and not waste it on a less valuable resource to our sustainability. There has also been evidence of it causing small earth tremors (earthquakes) which could potentially cause millions of dollars in property damage which could hurt the economy. But with that in mind i think that other methods of getting natural gas are way more detrimental to the environment than fracking so i would rather that then fracking.
AMD (Acid Mine Drainage) is created from sulfuric acid. It 's created when sulfuric acid makes contact with metals and other chemicals from the disposal site and then it creates AMD. Amd does many terrifying things to the environment like, it contaminates lakes, rivers, ponds, and other bodies of water. It also harms human health, fish, wildlife, and it also damages the entire ecosystem. Even the economy gets affected from sulfide mining.
Many believe that this is the causation of many earthquakes that have occurred in the last years. Water contaminations are a possible risk of fracking. With all the chemicals used for oil fracking, it could cause harm the human body. Although it provides many jobs and gives us oil and natural gas, there are many factors of fracking that has harmed the environment. Oil fracking, also known as hydraulic fracking or hydrofracking, has been used for roughly 65 years to get natural gas.
In the 1970s they created PCBs which is a very dangerous chemical and has caused people to die. However, now facing these lawsuits Monsanto wants to turn a blind eye, and this is not the ethical thing to do. Monsanto should be apologizing and trying to
The landscape was not only destroyed by hydraulic mining, miners also used dangerous chemicals that still leave effects on California today. Miners used chemicals, such as mercury, to extract the gold from quartz and stone. However, mercury is very hazardous and leaves behind toxic chemicals that threaten people today. The mercury can get in water sources and poison the people. Miners during the Gold Rush were never thinking about the
