There are millions of dolphins out in the oceans and they are declining fast because people couldn’t take another 12 steps to get to the trash cans that are all over the place in cities. Teens are the ones who mostly litter. Kamilo, an island in Hawaii is surrounded by thousands pieces of trash. They now call that place the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It used to be a beautiful island but is now ruined by trash.
Keith Colburn, the owner of The Wizard, told fox reporters that the government shutdown really cut down on the profits of these fishers. He says that the main buyers of the crabs are the Japanese markets during the holiday seasons. And that they have to get the crabs to Japan by November, or they risk missing out on the main portion of their sales (Deadliest Catch's' Keith, 1). If the Japanese do not get their crabs by that time, then they will gladly go to the Russian market, which has been clouded by questionable practices. Much of the Russian crabs are being poached and exported illegally (Alaskan Seafood, 1).
About 80% of the debris in the Pacific Garbage Patch comes from land activities in North America and Asia. Debris from the coast of North America takes approximately about 6 years to reach the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, while debris from Japan and other Asian nations take about 1 year. The remaining 20% of debris comes from boaters, offshore oil rigs, and huge cargo ships that dump or lose debris straight into the ocean. (Turgeon, 2014) The size of the patch is unknown, most debris are small plastic pieces suspended at or just below the sea surface, making it impossible to spot by aircraft or satellite.
Another thing that effects the blue crab 's ecosystem is its environmental threats. To begin, one of the environmental threats that blue crabs face is pollution. In the text, it states, “Approximately 6.4 million tons of plastic and other debris enter the oceans each year. And every year., more than 1 million marine animals die from eating or getting caught in this debris,” (Dignan 13). This shows that an environmental threat that blue crabs face is pollution because if about 1 million animals are dying each year because of pollution, we have a serious problem.
This cost for turtle a life, as plastic causes a blockage within digestive system. But this is only the beginning. Spots made of plastic cover for Sunlight cannot penetrate through plastic garbage into the water, algae and plankton, which is the bottom of the food chain, may simply die out. The situation can quickly turn into a global crisis. If it becomes less plankton, it means that fish and turtles will have nothing to eat, and if they begin to disappear, then the number of predators such as sharks and whales, also will be reduced.
The Exxon Valdez is still one of the most devastating oil spills in American history. Another devastating environmental disaster is the thermonuclear device called Castle Bravo. Castle Bravo was predicted to produce only six megatons of nuclear power but it furnished fifteen megatons of nuclear power, resulting in a radioactive cloud which rained down on the residents of
As long as gambling isn’t legalized there won’t be people getting addicted to gambling in Hawaii and won’t get the problems that come with it. There saying that it will create problems and it will help the economy. There wrong because there will be some people who will wait outside the gambling places so they can try and rob people to get money for the things they need like clothes or food for the family, for their drugs and the economy is bad there will be even more gambling bills.
The United States did not support the dictatorship of Castro and as a result they embargoed Cuba, completely cutting off trade between the countries. “In the 1950s more than two-thirds of Cuban foreign trade was with the United States. By 1961 Cuban-U.S. trade was down to 4 percent, and it soon ceased entirely under U.S. government embargo policies (Levinson).” The country of Cuba heavily relied on the United States for exporting their main goods. The embargo had a negative impact on the Cuban economy because Cuba could no longer export their goods to their biggest foreign country of trade, resulting in money loss.
Ocean Pollution DBQ Did you know that every year, eight million metric tons of plastic is dumped or somehow ends up in the ocean (Doc. 1)? The following sentences will talk about what people are doing to pollute the oceans and how they are making the pollution better. Humans are the biggest threat to animals in the ocean because they litter so much (OI). Sometimes, people litter without even knowing they're littering.
Everyday people buy plastic things from the cafeteria, from plastic containers, lids on cups, and things as small as straws, and like 50% of plastic used it will be thrown away after one use. However, do you ever stop and think, what happens to the plastic? If you’re thinking that it just magically goes away you 're wrong. It will most likely end up in a landfill somewhere or in the ocean, and as you may think that your actions do not impact the world, think again. Everyone in the world has at least used one piece of plastic, adding to the problem of plastic pollution and helping certifying the terrifying statisticc that acooording to the 2018 Earth day video, “by 2050 there will more plastic in the ocean than fish”, which almost is impossible to think of.
but we just find useless ways to waste it. Bottling water is one way of wasting it. After bottling billions of gallons of water a year, we waste at least 80 percent of it. “The entire nation consumes a bit more than 10 billion gallons of bottled water per year” (Hiltzik).
Red Tide: How it affects Marine Life Red tide in Florida is a reoccurring problem that threatens marine life every year. Red tide in Florida waterways has a negative impact on marine life because it produces toxins that are harmful to marine species. It lessens the amount of oxygen in the water which ultimately leads to the migration and death of many different marine animals. Millions of dollars are poured into red tide research and prevention every year to help predict when and where a red tide is going to form.
Lastly, there was no use for Alcatraz anymore due to they lifted the prohibition act ,and there wasn 't as much murders as there was before due to the lift of the prohibition act. That was why Alcatraz had to close Alcatraz was a one of a kind super max prison that had to close. It had it’s up 's and downs as a prison but it always found a way to keep prisoners out of trouble. Now it is a tourist attraction raking in big money
In 2005, economic growth as measured by GDP went from 3.8% in the third quarter dropping to 1.3% in the fourth quarter; the total economic loss is estimated to be around 250 billion. It wreaked havoc along the gulf coast, destroying businesses and more than 200,000 homes. “FEMA had provided more than $15 billion to the four Gulf states for public works projects such as the repair and rebuilding of roads, schools, and buildings in the 10 years since the storm, and $16.7 billion in recovery aid to more than one million people and households. The majority of all Federal Aid, approximately $75 billoin of the 120.5 billion,
Some people believe that Puerto Ricans should stay because the economy will improve, but for the past few years the economy has been decreasing. Trying to pay the huge debt the government has taken decisions that have damaged the individual economy. An example of these bad decisions is the increase of sales taxes from 7.0% to 11.5%, which according to PBS News is higher than any other in the United States (PBS News). High taxes have led the closure of small businesses and consequently kill the dreams and hope of all the young people that are trying to build their future with their own business. These small business close because costumers cannot afford the elevate cost of products and need to reduce their expenses limiting their shops to only what they really need.
