Considering the social and economic unsustainability factors of the Three Gorges Dam, there are also various environmental reasons for the unsustainability of the project. The main motive of the Three Gorges Dam project was to be able to prevent floods that have killed thousands of citizens and has destroyed millions of homes, however the dam will flood over 1,000 acres of farmland and will obliterate over dozens of villages, causing 2 million Chinese people to evacuate their home. (China 's Mega Dam) The irony of this situation is that the problem that the dam is trying to fix, the mass floodings, is in fact making the situation worse by flooding more land, and once all of the land is underwater all of the structures and sewage will pollute the Yangtze river and could eventually cause backup in the dams
New technology and machinery should be innovated and sold to companies for disinfecting large volumes of water to significantly reduce our water consumption. There should be the only exception that potable water can only be used for humans or anything food related. Other than that, agricultural industries need to recycle their water as they are responsible for a huge percentage of our water
Although some citizens believe that vaccine are harmful and they should get to choose if they get them or not, vaccines can be justified as a safe, effective method to stay immune to diseases. In order to ensure the health of the public and prevent illnesses, it is essential to make vaccines mandatory. When people are not vaccinated, they have a high risk of developing disease, which can lead to sickness and possible death. According to UNICEF, a program providing humanitarian and developmental assistance, 16,000 children die every day from preventable or treatable causes. This statistic shows how many lives we are losing due to the fact that people are not vaccinated.
Even considering the fact that this organism generally causes sickness vice death, it may still be used to make a political point by a group or an individual committed to causing purely economic damage vice gathering a large death toll. Any organism as common as this will remain a threat until such time comes as people no longer need to eat, which is unlikely to ever occur. The USDA is looking for additional ways to improve food safety in regards to salmonella (Mayo Clinic, 2014) and with continued research will likely be able to further mitigate any hazard
I think a huge problem in our society is all this talk about the North Dakota Pipeline. In my honest opinion i think it is wrong. There is many people who use the water supply and if something happens with the pipeline it could contaminate the Native Americans water supply. There is many people who count on the water and use it everyday for cooking, cleaning, and drinking. If they go through with the pipeline act it could kill many Native Americans because we need water to survive.
They both kill water borne infectious but chlorine does a better job. When chlorine first added to our water supply in 1908 as a cleanser. An article stated that there was a massive decline in deaths from waterborne diseases, such as cholera, typhoid fever, and Hep A. Chlorine is said to kill or at least fight off pathogens better than chloramines. But a it was said by The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) saying that they are at equal strengths when fighting off pathogens. Though i’m not completely sure on which is better at attacking the pathogens.
Vaccines are made from the same germs that cause disease, but it kills all the germs in your body so you won’t get sick. Vaccines are as important to your overall health as diet and exercise. So that’s another reason you should be vaccine. How exactly do vaccines save money? When a child gets sick with a vaccine-preventable illness she will need to seek treatment and this of course is going to cost something.
Topic: Water Shortage Specific Purpose: To inform the audience about water shortage and how to cope with water scarcity Thesis Statement: Across the globe, reports reveal huge areas in crisis as reservoirs and aquifers dry up. I. INTRODUCTION A. Turning off the water while brushing their teeth, a family could save about 5 to 10 gallons of water per day. B. Freshwater shortage will cause the next great global crisis.
As China’s population and economy have improved totally, so a plan for water is essential for China development. Today China is the country using the biggest water resources in the world(Stanford Program). For the uneven distribution of the water, in the china, southern and eastern areas are located on a natural place where possess substantial number of water, the precipitation and rainfall support their whole water resources. But the western and northern areas need to use water very carefully, the climate pattern make people suffer from the droughts and other natural disasters. Specifically, southern and northern areas have a high degree of rainfall, or more rain water, which causes the
Recent studies have shown that the water in Flint, Michigan has been contaminated by a horrible health impact, lead. This has happened because nearly two years ago, the state of Michigan decided to save money by switching Flint’s water supply from Lake Huron, to the Flint River a notorious tributary that runs through town known to locals for its filth. This has led to many terrible effects shown in both children and adults. The many effects lead has on children and adults are very drastic if not taken care of properly they could have lifetime effects. Dangerous effects lead can lead to that effect children.
