When it comes to the effects of urban sprawl on the poorer people, they are left behind in the more undesirable inner parts of the city. Urban sprawl causes the government to increase taxes on the houses outside the city and place restrictions on building new homes within the city. Just like any issue pertaining to government, urban sprawl has its pros and cons.
Urbanization To what extent is urbanization a critical driver of social instability, failure of infrastructure, water crises & the spread of infectious diseases? Urbanization is basically the gradual increase in the proportion of people living in the urban areas or a specific area, and the ways in how the society adapts to it. Urbanization can be a good impact to a country and has the ability to improve its economy and the life of people but it also has the ability to destroy the country and the life of all the people that exist there. GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE:
American Urbanization started like a wildfire and it spread so rapidly that facilities and institutions in society could not keep up. From 1850 to 1900 America completely changed from its agricultural state into a new industry based society. The four paramount changes that occured during America’s urbanization period were new immigration, the build up of cities (skyscrapers and mass transit), living conditions, and boss rule and the rise of mass consumption. Even though the changes during urbanization did not come easily due to immense diversity, they still paved the way to modern day America.
Many countries, states, and cities have been impacted by gentrification. Seattle, Washington is one of the top cities impacted. Gentrification is the process of renovating and improving a house district in order to conform the middle-class taste. The central district of Seattle Washington was one of the areas most affected in Seattle. The central district was an area of mainly Black people until everything evolves and it is well known as the of white people area. The African Americans then had to move to other places due to numerous reasons.
In Some parts of north america, air pollution is so high that if you breathe the air for a period of time it can cause severe damage and sometimes death. In the U.S air pollution causes as much as 50,000 deaths per year. For example, currently in Spokane the AQI can problems for people with lung problems. In Fresno and Madera the pollution over time can increase the risk of asthma, heart disease, COPD(Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and diabetes. Even in most urban areas the amount of air pollution increases the chance of getting strokes, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic/acute respiratory diseases.
Cars are transforming the lives of millions. You do not have to live near work. Cities explode outworks, creating giant suburbs. New highways were built and shopping malls with giant car parks. Over the hills a real-estate syndicate buys 500 acres.
Conclusion In conclusion, the “Parable of the Sower” portrays cities as places to avoid rather than being sanctuaries due to the lack of safety and the adverse influences of corporations. However, the novel does provide some hope by proving that if we start realizing problems and planning ahead, then, cities could change and become more livable in the future. As more people move to urban areas, the way we plan, manage and develop our cities will be fundamental in creating a fair, safe, healthy and sustainable
INTRODUCTION URBAN LAND USED SYSTEM Urban land use system means the system which manages the land area in urban cities. The land in urban areas should plan very well to mitigate the issues that arise in the future. Planning of buildings, roads, highways, rail ways, ports, stations and flyovers has to be planned under this system. It is very important to plan the urban land properly by placing the infrastructures in the proper places because wrong management plans will creates huge cost for the economy.
Because of this, locals and immigrants often flock to promising urban developments. The levels of overcrowding differ depending on factors such as housing supply and affordability, income, and immigrant concentrations (Myers & Baer, 2007). Subsequently, many cities are overwhelmed and struggle to deal with surging population sizes. Although highly populated cities bring together many different cultures and resources, they simultaneously lead to overcrowding. Overcrowding severely impacts society as it inevitably leads to many issues, including poverty, higher crime rates, and inadequate educational systems.
Now we have much worse things like cars that leave of smog and gases like carbon monoxide and all those other gases that are led of from everywhere. They ruin our natural wonders, cause global warming and make the earth look so dirty. These gases cause deaths from premature birth, lung cancer, heart attacks, to asthma attacks. In an article by LA Times it states that, ¨Bakersfield tops the list for having the most unhealthy days from airborne particles spewed by highway traffic, diesel trucks, farm equipment and fireplaces, the American Lung Assn. 's State of the Air 2016 report
Some cities in china have everyone wear gas masks when they go outside. That 's just tragic! Can you imagine getting lung cancer for standing outside for 10 minutes? Cars can release 2 different kinds of pollution. There is primary pollution that goes straight into the air to pollute it and secondary pollution.
Air pollution pervasively impacts humanity as a global society. It results in minimized quality of life and initiates instability within the environment . Air pollution causes extensive detrimental health effects on the residents of Southern California, especially on select sensitive individuals, and has significant adverse impacts on the environment of Southern California. The health of individuals residing within the boundaries of Southern California is steadily tarnished by the destructive qualities of polluted air. The effects of air pollution on the human body over a relatively minimal amount of time are unlikely to have major effects on youthful and healthful individuals.
Houston is located 165 miles (266 km) east of Austin, 112 miles (180 km) west of the Louisiana border, and 250 miles (400 km) south of Dallas. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 656.3 square miles (1,700 km2); this comprises 634.0 square miles (1,642 km2) of land and 22.3 square miles (58 km2) covered by water. The Piney Woods are north of Houston. Most of Houston is located on the gulf coastal plain, and its vegetation is classified as temperate grassland and forest. Much of the city was built on forested land, marshes, swamp, or prairie which resembles the Deep South, and are all still visible in surrounding areas. The flatness of the local terrain, when combined with urban sprawl, has made
