These health issues cannot be left alone and the fix to that is medicine. Medicine, however, is expensive to create and the high demand for such medicine will force companies to increase prices. All of these are effects of climate change that contribute to the economic aspects of the typical Californian. The increase of the standard of living will affect everyone inhabiting California. Unfortunately, there is no way around the high prices, however, we can halt climate change from getting worse by decreasing greenhouse gasses, pollution and much
Global warming has and is still negatively affecting coral due to the rising temperature of the ocean. The oceans temperature rose 0.18° fahrenheit every decade between 1970 and 2010 due to global warming (Fujita). Even though this doesn’t seem like much of a change, this extra heat makes the sensitive coral more susceptible to illnesses (Le Page 37). The unusually warm waters makes the corals expel food-producing algae which causes the coral to lose its color, turn white, and die due to the lack of nutrition (Markey 1). This is called bleaching (Fujita).
Why Population Control is Needed While it is not a fact that bigger families are happier, it is a fact that the Earth is running out of space. With an estimated 7.3 billion people living on this planet as of now and 2 billion more people are estimated to join the current population by 2050, the world does not have the space nor the resources to keep these many people happy. Whether people like it or not, something has to be done about the growing human population. If the human population continues to grow without anything to slow the growth, humans will die out along with the Earth. Because humanity will run out of resources, there will be economic issues, and there will be serious contamination to the environment.
But our primary source of energy is doing just that. Normally this process is slowly reversed over time as plants consume atmospheric carbon, eventually die, and get buried in rock. But thanks to us, plant mass is not as strong of a carbon neutralizing force since we routinely cut down their most robust members for resources and occupy much of their premium growing real estate. In the past increased environment toxicity and global warming akin to what we are managing to do with our incredible pollution has been known to devastate portions of the population, without which, the complex ecology of the time collapses. That is just it, we don’t need to directly kill everything to evoke a mass extinction, we just need to destabilize the biological systems in place, which we are doing.
Fresh water is valuable and reducing the amount of water in the Lakes wouldn’t help keep our basin remain water rich. In the article, Mideast Facing Chocie Between Crops and Water by Andrew Martin, He says “For decades nations in this region have drained aquifers, sucked the salt from seawater and diverted the mighty Nile to make the deserts bloom. But those projects were so costly and used so much water that it remained far more practical to import food than to produce it. Today, some countries import 90 percent or more of their staples.” The nations that Martin is talking about is the Middle East and North Africa where the people there are suffering between growing more crops or preserving water of what they have
But when it comes to us evolving, many scientists believe that we have stopped. They claim we are close to the end of human evolution because of all the genetic engineering and medicinal use, that is causing us now not to evolve naturally by natural selection, and survival of the fittest but by our own means. But at the same time, with all the evidence that scientists like Elisabeth Bolund of Uppsala University in Sweden show, one could argue that we are still evolving. This evidence being that between 4 and 18 percent of the variations among individuals in lifespan, family size and ages of the first and the last childbirth are influenced by genes. This means that if genes were to affect the differences in all of these traits, they could also react to changes in natural selection.
Among the utmost crucial environmental issues is human overpopulation, mutely exacerbating the intensities that are behind environmental pollution, global warming habitat loss, rigorous farming habits. Depletion of limited natural resources for example fossil fuels, fresh water, and cultivable land, at a velocity that is much faster than the time it takes for them to restore. Even so, environmental issues are merely the beginning. Lower life expectancy in the fastest developing countries will experience a deprivation of their quality also length of life as they continue to increase population facing difficulties to resource food, water, housing, jobs, and energy to their growing inhabitants. That will eventually lead to major consequences for economic growth, a reduced access to medical care leading to poor health.
Oil continues to serve as the driving force for the intervention in the Middle East as evidenced through the 2003 Iraqi invasion. “Middle Eastern oil continues to be necessary to the United States. American dependence on foreign oil has grown steadily over the years” (PBS), which influenced the 2003 invasion of Iraq: “Before the 2003 invasion, Iraq's domestic oil industry was fully nationalized and closed to Western oil companies. A decade of war later, it is largely privatized and utterly dominated by foreign firms” (Juhasz). There have not been attempts to affect change in this trend of foreign intrusion in the Middle East based on economic gains because these economies were dependent on European support, and were
So a growing human population must pose some kind of a threat to the well-being of planet Earth, mustn 't it?Currently, we as a population use up most of the resources how we please, waste, and even pollute. Our plan is to feed and to breed. The fertility rate has all of a sudden gone up incredibly over the past decade. Yes, we are getting overpopulated but there is no way we can control that.We simply cannot just kill every other baby that is born. Imagine every year how many graduates there are in different universities, college school from different countries.
With the development of science, some theories of Darwin have become accepted facts. And in science the fact is the truth.  For hundreds of years, people’s minds were imprisoned by theology. However, Darwin’s theories had changed people’s way of knowing the world that with a scientific view to discover the world. In a sense, Darwin’s theory of evolution is a revolutionary breakthrough in natural
Firstly, they would drink 2.6 gallons every 5 days for 240 days. Secondly, 240 days overall divided by every 5 days would be 48 days of distributing drinking water (240/5=48). Thirdly, you would have 48 distributing days multiplied by 2.6 which is the amount of water distributed this would give them 124.8 gallons distributed in the 240 days to a single person (48 x 2.6= 124.8). In the final analysis, they have multiplied 124.8 by 4 since that is how many people are in their group which gave them 499.2 gallons of water used (124.8 x 4= 499.2). Since only 41% of the cow and bull’s weight are consumable the group has a total of 409147.2 grams, or 902 servings, of consumable meat divided by four (902/4=225.5) then into 1.5 servings, or 680.4 grams, per 2 days and 3 bushels of wheat that is plenty for the first 120 days.
In California farmers take almost 70% of all water taken from the colorado river which happens to supply fresh water to all the states in the mid west. Although california does take the most amount water, they do supply most of the fruits and vegetables to the whole united states, almost 50% to be exact. Even though california does supply most of the produce we eat it does not mean they should have automatic
Climate change will affect communities in the north by destroying the best way to transport things. Finally, the sea level rise and flooding is a big problem people-wise. Flooding causes millions in damage that sometimes cannot be reversed. Flooding is encouraged by climate change because of the increase in moisture trapped in the air, and rain happening earlier in the year and falling on still frozen ground. Houses being destroyed by increased water also leave people homeless and cost a lot to fix.
Shale oil (light tight oil) is rapidly emerging as a significant and relatively low cost new unconventional resource in the US. There is potential for shale oil production to spread globally over the next couple of decades. If it does, it would revolutionise global energy markets, providing greater long term energy security at lower cost for many countries. Recent advances in combining two drilling techniques, hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, have allowed access to large deposits of shale resources—that is, crude oil and natural gas trapped in shale and certain other dense rock formations. As a result, the cost of that “tight oil” and “shale gas” has become competitive with the cost of oil and gas extracted from other sources.
A great adaptation of Ford’s success would to be providing affordable alternatives to fossil fuels both for large corporations and the average consumer. In this way, the majority of the nation, if not the world, can instantly participate in slowing climate change. Alternative energy innovations for the consumer would require proper advertising to be successful. Popular advertising techniques in the twentieth century included relating products to the concept of freedom, and many incorporated liberty in their brand names. Throughout the history of the United States, it has been proven that freedom sells.
