Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.

The Battle of Passchendaele Many battles fought during the First World War, from the year 1914 to 1918, ended in high casualties.

The muddy landscape and rain filled craters increased the soldiers likelihood of getting injured or even killed.
The Old Kingdom's collapse was not only due to the separation of its political rule but also partial to a horrible famine due to drought. In ancient Egypt when the Nile would not flood enough to even meet the low water levels it meant hard times for the whole country, however, high flooding meant the same thing. It affected the food supply as well as the wealth of the people if the Nile was too full or not full enough. If the climate did not even out it could threaten the society as a whole, the Nile was a massive deciding factor of whether the state fell apart or were capable of standing their ground through rough times. Even the Middle Kingdom was weakened by high flood levels towards the end of its reign.
The ‘pale rags of mist’ that hung describe the misty/foggy morning weather. The mud and leaves on the ground smelt ‘sweet like blood’.

The author prepares us for the “end of globalization,” as it has created much damage to the social, economic, cultural, and spiritual fabric of a society, not leaving animals out (1). The impact on animals has been severe, sometimes low and sometimes immediate, when climate changes made a slow depart from ideal conditions for animal subsistence, and climate related natural disasters killing thousands of animals in one event. The biological damage that globalization has created is far more destructive than assumed and analysed, because the damage done once does multiple in the forest and subsequent natural environment changes making it difficult for animals to survive as they best could under previous unharmed conditions. The author is spot-on about the issues that emerges from globalization and is critical of the view that it serves public and global interest of all beings, because since the “dominant market system” of globalization has come to be used and misused, there has been consistent destruction of animals and their welfare (3). The quality and the amount of information that I have found in this source helped me with investigating about rare animal
Many had a cold, constant dampness that caused trench foot, a frost bite like infection that often led to deterioration and amputation. The unexpected shelling or sniping is what defined trench warfare. The enemy would remain hidden from view and soldiers often felt powerless against the unsuspected and sudden deaths. The inability to defend themselves or their troops in the trench from the shelling or the snipers caused constant hardships, which added to the stress and exhaustion of the

Ryan, you make a good point mentioning that fracking towns set up to mine the gas increase crime, illness, and stress on rural communities. This affects every country with fracking towns, regardless if it is a developing country or not. Stress is an important aspect related to health, and stress increase in the entire population of a fracking town will also increase the illnesses of these people. These illnesses can make the fracking workers decrease on their work efficiency, that can lead to very important mistakes that could harm other or result in mistakes that can contaminate the environment around the fracking towns. I know I sound very pessimistic, but under constant (even permanent) stress (plus illness) people tend to work less efficiently
