Not eating meat will cause less animal cruelty. One Green Planet says, “The animals we slaughter for food are extremely intelligent and sensitive creatures, and the way in which we treat them regardless of whether the meat is factory farmed, free range or organic, is abhorrently cruel” (Abigail Geer). We need to protect the animals on our planet. The violence will not stop, The Ethical Arguments Against Meat Eating says, “Most meat, dairy, and eggs, are produced in ways that largely or completely ignore the animal welfare- failing to provide sufficient space to move around, contact with other animals, and access to the outdoors,” (Matt Pickles). Animals should be treated with respect not forced into harsh living conditions.The ethical Arguments Against Eating Meat also says, “... industrial farming causes
One of those farmland problems was “over managing” of the farmland and fields. This was a major cause of the Dust Bowl because it is what loosened up the soil. For example, farmers over-plowed the fields and as a result, pulled up the native grasses that had previously held the soil in place. They exchanged planting the prairie grass for instead attempting to harvest wheat, which they were unable to do because of external/natural factors. Turning to some effects of the farmland, the land was completely smothered in dust.
Here are a few ways you can ecoscape your backyard so your yard is as sustainable as you are. Limit the Size of Your Lawn Lawn grass is rarely a native plant. If you take a stroll in the untouched natural spaces near your home, you are unlikely to find lush, naturally growing lawns in the woods or even in the fields. This is because the species of grass planted in backyards of residential spaces are incredibly resource-hungry: They require abundant water, food, and attention to survive.
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 animal kingdom is also suffered as the habitat destruction caused by land clearing in such a way that their natural habitat is lost for human’s benefits. Animals are being forced to move further away and adapt new regions or die
GMO food doesn’t give humans the proper nourishment. The reason why is GMo foods don't have the nutrients as real food or fruit that humans need. The nutrients in food is what you need but in GMO’s it could be filled with fillers. They inject the food with fillers to make it bigger s o your food isn’t natural. So be careful on what you eat.
The filmmakers state that “corporations often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.” They provide cheap food regardless of the harmful consequences for our health. Eric Schlosser states, “The fast food industry fought against giving you the calorie information. They fought against telling you if there is trans-fat in your food. They fought not to label genetically modified foods; and now 70% of processed food in the supermarket has some genetically modified ingredient.” The negative impact of fast food on our health is well-known. However, it is cheap and tasty; therefore, its huge market has no boundaries.
I’ve came up with a plan to do this. There’s nothing that us humans can really do to change the drought in the middle eastern and Madagascar areas, but we can do something about the seeds being thrown away as garbage. Since there is such a high demand for the fruits from these trees, and people just throw away the seeds after they eat the fruit, we need to save these seeds to be used again. With the saved seeds, we can plant them in the ground so the population will begin to regenerate again, instead of heading in the other direction. We can create campaigns, posters, PSAs, etc.
The use of weedkillers does not harm this intricate relationship of plants. For example, sagebrush allows the retention of moisture which might have helped the grass the farmers have planted but they have killed everything in the way of the growth of the new grass. The removal of the sagebrush also ruins the lives of animals that need it (antelope and sage grouse). A removal of one species of plant can easily affect the whole ecosystem, potentially crippling it. Use of herbicide on roadsides can damage the aesthetic appeal and the environment around it.
Monsanto has introduced a wise alternative of planting crops to farmers with its products, known as transgenic seeds and herbicide Roundup. At first, the company states that the biotech seeds will help farmers save time to kill insects and save money to pay for insecticides (“Monsanto,” 2015). However, the statements become contradictory when the company increases the price of soybean seeds by 24% (Baird, 2015), causing farmers to pay more, as they were prohibited to save GM seeds due to the 101 utility patents (Smith, 2010). The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate three ways in which Monsanto leaves negative impacts on farmers, food consumers, and the human health. This paper will focus on seed monopoly, control of the global food supply,
The shortage of water has it, farmers, hard as well. Without enough water, farmers can grow as many of their crops as they used too. The shortage of crops leads to higher prices in the markets. Climate change also affects what type of vegetation the farmers can plant. Not all vegetation can flourish in higher temperatures.
If your soil is too acidic and you cannot afford to fertilize your alfalfa a lot, then do not plant alfalfa. Make sure that you prepare a good seed bag. If a seedbag is not smooth and free of large clods, then it is not good enough. A drill must be used to plant the alfalfa. Do not use a till.
Deforestation is the removal of a forest or large area of trees, so that the land or trees can be used for a commercial use. Deforestation started because people began living in wooded areas; however, where these trees laid was needed for commercial purposes, like the area for more houses, farms, or even for the development of new infrastructure. Deforestation may seem as harmless as cutting down a few trees, but in actuality, deforestation can lead to the destruction of the world’s most valuable natural resource. The cutting down of these large areas of trees has many negative impacts that can affect the planet forever. Now, some may argue that deforestation is completely necessary because more land space is needed.
