The British, however, had a positive social impact on India because the British revolutionized Indian society, and got rid of many negative social concepts that the Indians went by. Under British rule, Indians politically suffered. The army, government, and police force, was all favored towards the British, and they passed laws that worked against the Indians, like the Rowlatt Act. The Indians were negatively impacted economically. This was because, the British ruined their lands, by stripping their forests and forcing them to grow cash crops.
Although, civilization is a good thing for humanity because agriculture is the principal way of alimentation around the world, but this has negative effects on the planet too because, to make larger communities they began to deforest large amounts of land and this is one of the main causes of the bad climate change.The change from hunter-gatherer to sedentary, made a big impact on the environment and at humans. First the process to change was little by little because nomads were learned how to live in one place and how agriculture works. In the process hunter-gatherers were discovering a lot of things such as clothes, new food, to invent new tools, to construct their
The French and Indian War was important to the American Revolution because the debt from the war was the reason that Parliament started taxing the colonists. Also, the French and Indian War made Britain very weak, making the colonists’ actions work a whole lot better. Since France was not happy with the outcome of their war with Britain this was a main reasons for France’s interest in helping the now Americans throughout the Revolutionary War, which was very important to the colonies’ victory. The reason why Britain started to tax the colonists was because of the debt resulting from the French and Indian War. The first tax was the the tax on sugar, which was put on the colonists to help pay off the war debt.
Impacts: Animal Agriculture Animal agriculture is something that this world depends on in order to continue human survival. Humans use animals for all sorts of different products around the world. But is it hurting the environment past revival? As many of us know, the use of animals on a factory level is very damaging to the environment. Fecal matter from these farms are often times leached into rivers and are also creating methane gas which helps contribute to global warming.
Water is a critical source used all around the world to keep our way of life flowing. The use of water goes from regular house needs to creating energy in many ways. Around the world drinkable water starting to run low and the water stored is being contaminated by pollutants causing sickness and death. Countries are going through droughts which affects the water supply needed to maintain irrigation, and public supply. Water pollution is defined as the presence in groundwater of toxic chemicals and biological agents that exceed what is naturally found in the water and may pose a threat to human health and/or the environment.
To be specific, 70% of fresh water goes to agriculture and this can increase up to 90% in drier regions (Gilman). With that said, weakened water supply is deemed to influence agriculture worldwide. Moreover, in Larry Gilman’s, Agriculture: Vulnerability to Climate Change, he discusses the vital effect climate change as a whole can have on agriculture. He specifically mentions the effect water can have on food production stating, “As of 2002, about 30 countries were facing chronic water shortages, a number expected to exceed 50 by 2050. Water shortages will impact both health and agriculture directly” (Gilman).
It is widely known that fresh water must be available for everyone, and there are many methods available for obtaining this water. According to Elliot & Cosla (2009), desalination still consumes a natural source. On the other hand, water recycling and rain water tanks are more effective than desalination. Consequently desalination is the most costly approach and might damage the environment. In conclusion, there are benefits and drawbacks to desalination.
Oceans, seas, and coastal areas are essential to the Earth’s ecosystem and are critical to sustainable development. Two-thirds of the earth’s surface is covered by oceans, seas, and coastal areas, and contain 97% of the planet’s water. The oceans contribute to poverty eradication, create sustainable livelihoods for the three billion and plus people depending on it, are crucial for global food security and human health, and are the primary regulator of the global climate. The Oceans contribute to human well-being because they provide us with water, oxygen, and many natural food sources. Although there are many groups of people who depend on oceans for sustainable livelihoods, they are the most vulnerable because they become so reliant on natural resources and are harming themselves without even knowing it.
Despite the fact that British rule in India during the Imperial period was extremely negative for the Indian people, it ultimately created an improved Indian nation. The British forced the idea of monoculture, were racist, created unfair trade and economic distress. However, they did provide an education system, improved human rights, promoted peace and created a more modern society for the Indian nation. The British rule began in the early 1600’s. The Mughal rule was the government at the time but it was easily conquered by the British in the 1700’s because it was so weak and corrupt.
With the current growth of the world’s population and the increase in demand for water in the agricultural industry, the issue of water scarcity is very likely to get worse and worse (Gupta, 2016). This essay will therefore critically discuss water scarcity and how one can prevent a war fought over water, as well as how one can save water and implement change to better our future nationally and globally. 2. The Importance of Water With two thirds of the earth 's surface covered by water and the human body consisting of 75 percent of it, it is clear that water is one of the core elements responsible for life on earth (Anderson, 1986). Water is very important to us because human bodies, as well as animals, cannot function without water in their systems.
Serving for British could have one of the most honorable thing that the Colonist could have done. The Colonies were striving even more to helping the British because they thought the British would reward by letting them more out to newer lands and going further west, but unfortunately the opposite happened. In Document A we can see that the British gain an immense amount of land, but they placed the Proclamation Line of 1763. This permitted the Colonist from moving further west and staying one place. This brought lots of angry towards the British Empire thus causing their loyalty and relationship with them to vanish.
