Thus, the purpose of this report is to analyse the positive and negative impacts of deforestation in Malaysia. In addition, the report will also explore the question of sustainable logging in Malaysia. 1.1 Significance & Relevance of the Study Nowadays, deforestation has become the main topic of debate in our daily lives. This is significance because deforestation has been conducted to make more lands available for the residents but this also brings an issue which is flora and fauna might losses its habitat, certain pollutions may occurs after deforestation. The objective of this report is to explore the question of sustainable logging in Malaysia.
This is a police drone that has been helping law enforcement to find criminals or find lost hikers. This technology is so cost efficient that it replaced helicopters. Ben Miller, Director of Mesa County’s UAV program said, “We can fly 50-60ft off the ground and literally photo-map an entire crime scene.” (Cited, Lev Grossman 2013) It is a great little-advanced tool to document crime scenes more accurately, help to find clues quickly to prosecute criminals. Drones can be used for finding a lost child in the park or hikers in the mountain. Drone technology is a fast growing industry that can help us many ways to help to find lost people, watch our borders and go places that are too dangerous for us to go.
Throughout the course of history, technology has played a substantial role in the development of cities. Technology ultimately made everything more efficient. As seen in Jackson’s text Crabgrass Frontier, Jackson talks about the impact that technology had on the age of subdivision. Houses were improved after the war, and population increased. With the increase of population, more minds were put into the field of technology.
The 1920’s brought an increase of convenience for the middle class. Products such as refrigerators and vacuum cleaners, that were earlier only available to the rich, were now affordable. They were mass produced using Henry Ford’s method of the assembly line. These products made life easier and gave people more leisure time, therefore altering the manner in which people lived their lives. The automobile also affected the social dynamics of cities.
Additionally, Moses helped connect people throughout a large area by bluing various highways in both cities and suburban areas. “the projects Robert Moses built set the pattern from imposing the automobiles on cities all over America, and fir destroying the countryside of surrounded cities… Moses’s only ideology was to get highways, bridges, and tunnels built” (Kunstler 97-98). Due to Moses’s work, different area throughout the world were connected, which benefited society. With more roads existing, people living in both rural and urban areas can be connected to one another. Transportation to one place would be easier due to the fact that there are now many ways to get to one specific location.
Forest succession happens when there are changes to an environment that causes the composition of plant and animal species to change. New species succeed the existing ones as a result of things like changes in amount of shade, temperature, or the introduction of foreign species. Unintended species brought over by loggers and settlers include fungi and weeds that are detrimental to the existing ecosystem. In 1910 a fungal disease known as “white pine blister rust” was introduced and resulted in a substantial reduction of the existing Western white pine (1). The forest succession, as it is happening in the Pacific Northwest, is making the forest more “homogeneous in their composition and structure” especially since the only trees replanted after logging where Douglas-fir (1)(4) .
due to the over population, the number of various chemical elements in increasing in the atmosphere which ultimately causes irregular rainfall and global warming. It is very true that climate changes goes slowly, however continuous slow process is very dangerous. because regular changes in the environment physical structures of the human beings and other living species has been changed from generation to generation. Increasing human population needs more land for agricultural cultivation and living purpose which force them to cut more trees and forests so the deforestation has its own dangerous side effects. I believe everyone present can agree that all of these issues exist and that humans have caused them.
• Sustainable forestry the practice of regulating usage of forest resources in such a way that the forest wealth is preserved. • Indiscriminate tree cutting is replaced by selective logging wherein you remove certain trees but preserve the balance of the woodland. Also young trees are allowed to mature before they are harvested, protected forests are created and trees are planted to expand forestlands. • A sustainable forest contains trees of all ages and different species. • In sustainable forestry, the first activity is to survey the land that's part of the sustainable forestry project.
Off the Washington coast, environmental researchers are using drones to monitor marine wildlife. The uses of drone technology are extremely diverse. Forest Service officials have used drones to spot fires and battle wildfires. Parks service employees can also use drones to find lost hikers. Public officials as well as environmentalists see drones as a vehicle that allows them to survey areas after natural disasters such as floods or
While pricey, these cables are very handy for those living in areas that receive significant snowfall. As you can see, there are many tools that can make your roof snow removal much easier. Remember, snow might be pretty, but it is very heavy. The weight of snow on your roof can cause serious problems, so remove it quickly.
