Without water, people and animals could not survive. Water is a precious source and must be protected as well as respected. By limiting water usage now, it will help future generations to enjoy what people have today. While there are some people who think water will never run out, others believe in conservation, just in case those other people are wrong. Fishman, in his book, “The Big Thirst,” is spot on that citizens should understand the current water situation.
water is necessary to survive for plants, animals and humans. and we are destroying our community primary sources of water by using too much of it. it 's predicted that water withdrawal will drains rivers and destroy habitat for many species of fish and wildlife. Cities like Las Vegas water is pumping from the colorado river,
In his book, Population Bomb, he argued “through his life that there is an impending doom containing overpopulation and starvation”(Ehrlich 18). Let the facts show that the world has taken the right path toward sustaining life and sending us towards prosperity. In R. Engelman article “Population and Sustainability: Can We Avoid Limiting the Number of People” Engelman’s key argument was that “slowing the rise in human numbers is essential for the planet--but it doesn't require population control”(Engelman 49). Placing a cap on the population will force consequences as
In the article, “Water Controversies Boil Over”, from Sacramento Bee “Opinion” section, published on APril 26, 2009 by Mat Wiser. He argues the conflict about conserving the water. Mat wiser exclaims that in the next year nations will fight over water, because it’s not being handled in the most efficient way it should be. Water isn’t being handled efficiently, and that kills land, food crops, and animals ecosystems. Mat Wiser says that, “There is probably enough fresh water available to meet humans needs the problem is poor management of water, which results in scarcity and conflicts,” (2009 Wiser).
The human species since the dawn of time has possessed the ability to overcome and adapt to numerous challenges. However, when it pertains to Mother Nature’s droughts which impact surface and groundwater supplies for mortal consumption all sensible rational and problem solving skills fall to the wayside. The challenge of water scarcity must be met with methodical scientific thought and firm governing of how it will be shared to ensure clean, consumable drinking water for all. “The question of water ownership has been debated since at least ancient Rome, and today, some 2,000 years later, government, big business and Earth’s 7.125 billion (Google) and growing inhabitants are no closer to a consensus on who owns the tiny percentage of drinkable
In about six years, one female dog and her offspring can theoretically produce 67,000 puppies (Anderson, pg 187). This is just one example of overpopulation of companion animals. Resulting, in a concern with the rising overpopulation of companion animals in the United States. There are too many animals running around uncared for and/or becoming unwanted by their owners so they are left on the streets. There are strategies to combat overpopulation that have been discussed and some I have thought up of on my own. Unfortunately, every strategy will have its pros and cons in society and some are more effective than others. Therefore, there are dilemmas involving some of these strategies that could interfere with consumers’ rights, and business
Overpopulation Overpopulation is a condition that is undesirable. Overpopulation is one of the problems that people concern it to. One of the serious countries facing this problem is China. Reports in China show that it has about 1.4 billion people in this country; it takes about one over seven people of the world population. China is the third largest land after Russia and Canada in the world.
1. Introduction Water is crucial to our survival! Water is one of the scarcest commodities in the world at the moment; some argue that it is scarcer than oil. Wars have been fought over oil; therefore a war over water is a very big possibility in the years to come on this planet. With the current growth of the world’s population and the increase in demand for water in the agricultural industry, the issue of water scarcity is very likely to get worse and worse (Gupta, 2016).
Eugenics is the science of using artificial selection to improve genetic features of the population. It is thought that improvement of the human race can be seen through sterilization of people who exhibit undesirable traits and selective breeding. Often called Social Darwinism, the concept was widely accepted during the time of World War I. It quickly became a taboo after World War II when Nazi Germany used it as an excuse for genocide. The thought of improving the human race by manipulating who is allowed to breed can either be appalling or compelling. There are a few appealing aspects to the act of eugenics. If eugenics were applied, the world could potentially see a decrease in disease, a rise in intelligence, and heightened physical aesthetic in humans. But, ethically it crosses many boundaries that have prevented this idea from going into world-wide effect in the past.
Sources of fresh water are necessary for health care, agriculture and industry. Water supplies used to be relatively constant, but now in many places demand exceeds the sustainable supply, with dramatic consequences in the short and long term. Large cities dependent on significant supplies of water have experienced periods of shortage, and at critical moments these have not always been administered with sufficient oversight and impartiality. Water poverty especially affects Africa where large sectors of the population have no access to safe drinking water or experience droughts which impede agricultural production. Some countries have areas rich in water while others endure drastic
But at the same time farmers should have a limit of water they can waste for their needs. There are some farmers that have dams that they own,so pretty much they can open the river when they want and the water will flow in a river for the animals to drink. I think that’s a waste of water because the water flows everyday and it just goes to waste. Some farmers might say that they need the water, that how are they just going to let more than 100 cows die. I think those people just care about the money, because it only helps their needs.
2% of earth’s fresh water is frozen in ice caps; and, only 1% of earth’s fresh water is available to consume. 2. Unfortunately for our planet, supplies of water are running dry at an alarming rate. The world’s population continues to soar; but, that rise in numbers has not been matched by an increase in supplies of fresh water. Let’s talk about what is going on around the world; I will mention to you just a few major cities, and show you how they are dealing with water shortage.
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.
Water is one of the most important and vital substance on earth. All life forms on earth require water to survive. If there will be no water there would be no life on earth. Aside from drinking water to survive, people have many other uses for water.
