Poaching has killed off thousands of rhinos, and the numbers keep growing (https://www.savetherhino.org/rhino_info/rhino_population_figures). Although it is proven that rhino horn has no medicinal value, the high demand in rhinoceros horn is mainly caused by the myth that rhino horn can cure cancer and hangovers . In Asia, 70% percent of people believe that rhino horn is rhino teeth that fall out and grow back. This idea is encouraged by sellers so they can sell more horn (Olstein, pg 33). Also, poachers are poaching more rhinose because the price has skyrocketed to 100,000 dollars a kg.
According to the World Economic Forum, it was the second most expensive volcanic eruption in the world costing approximately $860 million US dollars (Figure 4). Repairs include the removal of 900 thousand tons of ash, rebuilding homes and businesses, repairing damaged bridges roads and railways (Mount St. Helens: Effects on people and economy). Another negative impact was that most of the trees were destroyed, blown to the ground or covered in mud from the landslide during the eruption loosing lots of valuable timber (Figure 5), this meant that people working in the lumber industry around the area of the volcano lost their jobs and had to move (United States Trade Commission report to Congress 1980). In areas with thick fall of ash, farming lands were covered, destroying crops such as wheat, apples, potatoes and alfalfa (United States Geological Survey,
In one case, his positive description of them even led to the Natives experiencing a great deal of hardship. Because of how hardworking the Natives were Columbus ended up enslaving them to work in gold mines. Many of the Natives forced to work in mines worked until they died of exhaustion. If they didn’t work hard enough their hands would have been cut off. If natives resisted enslavement they would get their
First, in “The lorax” an environmental issue was the air quality. In the beginning of the story the land had clean air, healthy trees and a sustainable environment but soon turned into a lonely place covered in pollution and the lifeless haze of abandonment. Once-ler in “the lorax” cut down all of the trees to make his thneeds and didn’t replant the truffula tree seeds. The same thing happened on Easter Island, the Polynesians used the Hauhau and Toromiro trees to help transport their gigantic stone heads across the islands and soon all of the trees were gone. By doing that, thee land in “the lorax” and in “Easter Island” ended up empty and lonely.
This act made many people who owned farms unemployed and they lost their farms and also there houses. When their farms got ruined they knew that they continue their life there. So many of them migrated to California.“By 1940, 2.5 million people had moved out of the Dust Bowl states and started to head toward the states by the Pacific” (John Steinbeck). I believe that California was a place that would attract unemployed farm workers from the Dust Bowl states because they could start a new life there it also is a easy way to find farm jobs because of its agriculture, climate, and the easiness of getting water.
Nowadays debris is an integral part of humanity life. Mankind thinks about how to make the product easier and cheaper to use, but nobody cares what happens with waste after it was used. We contaminate the environment with every decade increasingly: muddied air and water, global warming are an output of human life. The worst thing is that from such attitude other living beings are dying. Millions of animals and birds cannot withstand such environmental changes; their populations become smaller and, eventually, disappear altogether from the face of the earth.
It was, however, notable for the way it affected the whole country. The last outbreak in 1967 had been confined to a relatively small area and The Northumberland report issued by the government after that outbreak recommended that speed was of the essence in dealing with any future outbreak of the disease. Priority should be given to the speedy identification of infected animals and those animals should be slaughtered on the spot within 24 hours, with their carcasses buried in quicklime. These recommendations were no longer in effect by 2001, partly thanks to changes brought about by farming practice and the closure of many local abattoirs which meant that animals had to be transported greater distances. More particularly, Britain’s accession to the European Union had meant that by 1985 new European Union legislation was in effect in the UK.
Farming was their main source of food, so they were practically left with little to nothing to survive. Since there was a scarce amount farms left, poor people had been removed from them. Bombs did not only ruin farms, but they also ruined villages completely. Within those villages were families and houses that all became destroyed during the war. Planes were a large part of the Vietnam war, so they were used during most the whole war.
Examples include 130 people died in underground coal mines between 2007 and 2011, hundreds more died from “black lung” disease caused by years of inhaling coal dust, and the poisoning of thousands of Indians at Bhopal. This is because all the companies involved had put profit before safety. Now, we will look at how conflict theorists regard social inequalities as the cause of deviance. Conflict theorists believe that deviant labels are applied to people who interfere with the operation of capitalism. The legal authorities are favouring the rich over the poor and consequently creating more criminals among the latter.
