The Mayan population had increasingly grew when they began to farm in the pocket lands of the Copan Valley. With the cities being overpopulated it became increasingly difficult to provide food and water for those who inhabited the area. Because the Mayans depended on water that was being collected and held in manmade basins or small rivers and lakes this would not be enough to support a population of millions. The hillsides had not been populated because of the settling of sediments which caused erosion and the leaching of nutrients. The infertile hill soil would make its way down to the valley pockets where most of the inhabitants were, destroying the soils there which would reduce the growth of crops.
They are responsible for about 70% of the different nuts, vegetables and fruits that we consume (1). That is a really high percentage, so with our bees decreasing, that means our daily fruits, vegetables and nuts that we have will become more expensive to get because it will be harder for them to grow, which means they will be harder to buy. “Recent harsh winters that stay freezing cold well into spring have been instrumental in decimating the honeybee population”, “The recent severe drought in California has become an additional factor driving both its honey yield and bee numbers down as less rain means less flowers available to pollinate” (2). This shows that our environment may be the leading cause for our diminishing population, because it is affecting the living environment of the bees and they aren 't able to adapt. Some issues are also industrialization, which is killing our natural habitats.
With the need for more animal pastures, and grazing land deforestation is occurring globally. To keep a factory farm running the use of fossil fuels to run machinery, and heat barns during the winter months causes even more pollution to the environment. This magazine provides an ample amount of information to prove that factory farming is damaging the environments in many ways, and regulations need to be put in place. "Pew Commission Says Industrial Scale Farm Animal Production Poses." "Unacceptable" Risks to Public Health, Environment.
The California Drought: From December 2011 to March 2017, the state of California experienced one of the worst droughts to occur in the region on record. The period between late 2011 and 2014 was the driest in California history since record-keeping began. 102 million trees died in total due Researchers said farmers have followed 78,780 acres this year because of water shortages. That compares with an estimated 500,000 acres last year. The idled acreage has cost farmers $247 million in crop revenue.
With the increase of population the number of vehicles in the urban areas will also increase, but if the land area won’t get expand it will lead to traffic congestion. This is a huge negative impact on the country’s economy. The main negative impact from traffic congestion is the wastage of fuel, energy. Other than that; wastage of time, difficulties in parking, less efficiency and effectiveness are some negative impacts of traffic congestions. • HIGH MAINTANANCE COST To meet the higher urbanization and higher population new infrastructure has to be provided and as well as has to upgrade the current
The goods that were being imported after the Black Death were extremely overpriced but since the population size dropped the demand for food was lower therefore decreasing the prices of food (Spielvogel World History and Geography). It was challenging and unhygienic to exchange goods through trade or produce them thus the prices of imported goods shot up. To add more to the goods crisis, large amounts of farms and villages stopped producing goods simply because most of the people who lived there died. Since huge amounts of free land was left behind, people stopped paying their rent assuming that is was acceptable thus causing tax rates to decline. Financial businesses were deeply affected and destroyed because machines being used to build things were broken or abandoned and no one remained to fix them.
International trade plunged by half to two-thirds, as did personal income, tax revenue, prices and profits. Cities all around the world were hit hard, especially those dependent on heavy industry. Construction was virtually halted in many countries. Farming and rural areas suffered as crop prices fell by roughly 60 percent. Facing plummeting demand with few alternate sources of jobs, areas dependent on primary sector industries such as farming, mining and logging suffered the most.
According to the World Wildlife Fund, approximately twenty-seven soccer fields worth of trees are cut down per minute (Hook). Deforestation is a major environmental problem occurring all over the world. Trees are being cut down constantly for a number of reasons, which is greatly harming the environment. Deforestation is causing more and more problems in the world such as, global warming and loss of habitat. Trees are being cut down at a very fast rate and we need to do something about it before it is too late.
Also took away from the essential market from European and Latin American countries .

Bees in Decline Honey bees visit around 50-100 different flowers in one collection trip for honey; What would happen if millions of hives are declining in populations? The decline in bees is a serious problem that could cause the beautiful spring colors to turn dark and saturated without colors. This epidemic is worldwide, and could be a serious problem, more than one third of what goes on your plate is made with products that have been pollinated by bees (The Bees in). The bees have been declining in most of Europe because of the rough cold winters they have had the past years dropping their populations by almost 53%, as well as pesticides dropping the populations and killing of the entirety of a single hive (). This problem could cause a
Document A Businesses went from low income friendly to high-income friendly. Low-income housing decreased in Woodward from 1995-2012 -Social housing increased from 1995 to 2012 It would have been better to live in Woodward in 1995 because the properties are low income friendly and more people have the opportunity to live there. Many people in Woodward in 1995 would be put in the stereotype that low-income people are committing crimes Gentrification is not okay because many people in the world have issues with finances.

The alliance aquirred over a million members by 1890 , but the group was weakened the plight of landless tenant farmers and sharecroppers. It was also weakend by exclusion of blacks who made up half of the agricultural population. In the 1890’s, the People’s party was started. They were also known as the Populists, these farmers fought against Wall Street and the “money trust.” They advocated for the nationalization of the railroads, telephones, and telegraph, a graduated income tax, and a new subtreasury. Basically, the populist wanted to provide farmers with loans for crops stored in government-owned warehouses.
