Plants and animals that have been genetically modified can become more resistant to the unexpected problems of disease. The beneficiaries have also been the agrochemical industry (pesticides, including insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and nematicides), large petrochemical companies (BASF, Dow Chemical, and ExxonMobil), manufacturers of agricultural machinery, dam builders, and large landowners. As stated by PG Economics, “The insect resistant (IR) technology used in cotton and corn has consistently delivered yield gains from reduced pest damage.” Pest control is very important to GMO farming and benefits the value of the crops. For others, the idea of GMO farming is a bad one because it leads to reduced genetic diversity, increased vulnerability to pests, soil erosion, water shortages, reduced soil fertility, micronutrient deficiencies, soil contamination, reduced availability of nutritious food crops for the local population, the displacement of vast numbers of small farmers from their land, rural impoverishment, and increased tensions and conflicts. Also, many of the farmers that use GMO for agricultural production do not follow all of the standards.
The Locavore Movement Increasing levels of greenhouse gases produced by fuel of trucks and animal production has caused a major impact in pollution and climate change. Also, in the U.S. there is a bad nutrition outbreak due to not eating enough fresh foods with the right nutrients. There is a movement taking place is aimed to solve this problem but will it actually work? The Locavore Movement is aimed to increase the nutrition in foods and reduce pollution. The Locavores, which are people of this movement, have decided to eat locally grown or produce products as much as possible.
The new Monsanto is committed to finding ways to contribute to the nourishment of our ever changing word. This is done by Monsanto’s commitment to enhance the growth of perishable products that humans eat. Monsanto decided to do so by producing Genetically Modified seeds coated with Roundup Ready (Ferrell, Fraedrich & Ferrell, 2015). The New Monsanto invented a way where crop sparing foods would grow while killing weeds and bugs, by themselves (Ferrell, Fraedrich & Ferrell, 2015). Unfortunately, not everyone was please with the company 's creation.
LED bulbs save energy and last longer, but has a price too high. Additionally, people in poverty still do actions like burning trash, which emits greenhouse gasses like CO2, making global warming worst where they can instead do the 3Rs (Reuse, reduce and recycle). Actions like which can change the future for the better are sadly not be able to be done by people in the poverty
It brought an increase in food supply, changes in lifestyle, and changes of the treatment of the planet. The Green Revolution was caused by a need for improvement an it had both negative and positive consequences, such as an in food supplies, new lifestyle changes, and treatment of the planet. The green revolution was caused by a need for improvements. Documents 3 and 4 both illustrate that prior to the revolution, there were too many diseases
Environmental pollution made by industrial emissions has a detrimental effect on humans, animals, plants, soil, buildings and structures. It reduces the transparency of the atmosphere, increases the humidity, pollutes the water and soil and expands the diseases. In order to produce more corporation have to pollute more and buy the carbon credits from other countries. But what is the reason behind? Can corporations improve their technology?
Considering the pros and cons when weighing one’s options with regards to P-Series fuel; one, is that clean burning fuel reduces ozone-forming emissions, Two; it’s renewable; whereas, it’s plant based, so whatever is used can always be replanted. Three, the support of local agriculture; it’s produced domestically, which in turn assists local farmers. Yet, with every positive, there is always that evil negative. First to consider, corrosion, which tends to deteriorate non-synthetic and rubber fuel system parts. Second, is the land and labor viability, which large amounts of farmland and labor are required to grow the crops.
Mining requires the removal of topsoil containing valuable organic matters. The removal of topsoil causes the land to be barren which are unsuitable for cultivation and unproductive, which is a kind of land pollution. Due to urbanization, many construction activities are taking place. Waste materials such as wood, metal and plastic often being left at the construction site. When deforestation is committed, the green cover which helps in balancing the atmosphere is reduced and it leads to natural disasters such as global warming, flash floods and green house effect.
The graph in document 1, a food/population report by the UN, shows a direct relationship between a growing population and the amount of food supply. This rapid increase is made possible by Norman Borlaug's genetically modified crops that made more food on less land and were able to fight off plant diseases. Document 2, a speech given by a president Truman to the struggling citizens, says that many people in a food crisis are in misery and would do anything to escape it. This is fuel for the Green Revolution and its colossal effects on human’s food supply. Document 7 contradicts this thesis because it states that the people who experienced its effects thought it was a contamination to their culture and natural way of life.
Foer further explains that animal food is not only responsible for diseases such as bird’s flu and swine flu, but also hinders the effectiveness of antibiotics in the human body (2009). He mainly focuses on factory farming which if stopped would reduce global warming, pollution, save oil reserves, reduce disease burden, improve public health
