But how? People living in the Sahara Desert adapt to living in these harsh conditions in many different ways. The environment of the Sahara Desert is very rough and harsh to live in. One reason why living conditions are so harsh is that of the climate. The climate in the Sahara is very hot, which makes it a very hard environment to live in.
The problem of soil pollution arises due to mixing of toxic, and polluted materials in the soil. Illegal dumping is the biggest reason for soil pollution, which adversely affects the quality of soil and the health of people living on it. Soil pollution also spreads through polluted water absorbed by the soil. Chemical compost used in agricultural work also badly pollutes the soil. Litter and dirt also pollute the soil.
This means that their fertility is reduced and so they are more easily affected by soil erosion. The continent of Africa is the one most at risk from desertification, although the south of Europe, particularly southern space is also at risk. This is because vineyards in Spain produce huge amounts of wine and drain the soil of its nutrients, turning it to desert. The process of desertification usually occurs as a result of a mixture of drought, overcropping, overgrazing and deforestation. This is because these processes remove the nutrients from the soil, meaning that they eventually get a dusty texture.
acid rain is incredibly power and terrible for our eco system. Pollution from our world is the cause from all acid rain. Three things acid rains affects in neighborhoods are plants, lakes and paint on houses. Acid rain has no benefits to plants and cause plants to glow slower. According to scientist over the years they have notice growth of plants have been slower.
Mali was a western African empire that began around 1,235 C.E. The empire was well known for trading gold and has so much of it that people called it the land of gold. Their whole city was mainly in the scorching hot desert which sometimes made it difficult to trade with others. The route they used was very dangerous with bandits and sand storms. They had to travel on camels because they carry very heavy loads and could last a long time without water.
The novel, talks about the issues related to nature and its devastation which is happening in the present day or for some time lately. The lines in the novel: “But the desertification was not only restricted to rather arid regions but also the “Mediterranean – once fruitful farmland, now a desert” (TYOF 90), shows that the people living in the lands tend to harm and destroy their own land which is also a living space for them. This can be seen in the real world also where the lands of the people are harmed by them itself leading to the ‘shrinking of the land’ and which leads to the world becoming ‘smaller’. This issue is just like what is happening to the Sahara desert where the lands are being destroyed by the people and thus it leads to the
The scientist had found proofs that afforestation has the negative impact on the habitats of animals and the whole environment. But how this kind of activity would harm people and animals? Environment: How do people and animals live? Well, they would need to depend on some biotic and abiotic factors. Water, carbon dioxide, nitrogen etc.
In some cases, there is no vegetation in the areas surrounding  the flare due partly to the tremendous heat that is produced and acid nature of soil pH. The effects of the changes  in temperature on crops included stunted growth, scotched plants and such other effects as withered young crops. They  concluded that the soils of the study area are fast losing their fertility and capacity for sustainable agriculture due to the acidification of the soils by the various pollutants associated with gas flaring in the
In the Southern Province of Kerala, miners loot soil from the second longest Bharathapuzha river and third river Pamba, which have become victims of indiscriminate sand mining. In India, soil mining is regulated by law but is still done illegally. Illegal sand mining is rampant on banks of Painganga river creating hundred by fifty feet tunnels across agricultural land. Bagchi (2010) further noted that the state government exempted mining of sand through Minor Minerals Rules of 1996 but this increased illegal extraction of sand. Many leases were issued by the Indian Mining Cooperation of Madhya Pradesh to excavate sand from state land, disregarding environmental
One of the major obstacles is that the country is dusty and a sand layer on one of the panels is enough to make it useless. In addition if a sand storm hits the solar farm, it is capable to shut 50% of the performance of the array. Hence if it is not cleaned it will cause a huge output lose that will affect the company profit line at the end of the year. Since Masdar solar farm is 2.5KM wide it is going to consume a lot of water to clean the panels, also thousands of workers are needed to clean this dust which will raise the labor cost. Even with this huge number of workers, it is impossible to clean the whole farm efficiently to give 100% performance.
