Many people changed their work from agricultural to non-agricultural tasks moved to industrial regions and lead to mass migrations within a country. Big cities were established as a result of industrial revolution and played important role in production, consumption and politics (C.A. Bayly 2004, 185). One of positive influence of industrial revolution is that transportation such as railway was also developed (Eric 1996, 60). Development of transportation is important not only for the development of industrial revolution to transport materials, goods, workers, but also for the connection among different regions, which is a part of
The environmental harm from multinational agribusiness and resource extraction corporations and transnational development plans is not only bad ecologically, but it also affects the small communities and indigenous people living off the Gran Chaco. As the world’s population grows the demand for food and agribusiness increases.
As the years progressed and the ages evolved, the demand for minerals and ores increased. The high demand resulted in a faster process and worse environmental conditions, when mining. These mining strategies posed a threat towards Canada’s environment and created a challenge the country had to face. The strategies created “erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, contamination of soil, ground and surface water.” (nrcan.gr.ca/mining) The negative results of mining proves that it posed a threat towards Canada’s environment. The effects resulted in the Environmental Movement in Canada to target mining processes that could be harmful of the environment.
b) Episodic acidification is a sudden rise in the acidity of the water, which is a result from a heavy rainstorm. Such acidification may cause sudden shifts in water chemistry. It increases the concentration of substances like aluminum which would be toxic to some fish. It may also affect the forests by influencing the soil. It weakens the trees ' natural defenses, making them more exposed to diseases.
Actually, one of the results of increased CO2 levels are the development of more weeds, pests, and diseases. As mentioned in an article called, “Effects of Climate Change on Agriculture” by North Carolina State University, “Weeds have become more prolific and are expected to invade new habitats as global warming increases.” The article also mentions that pests that may carry plant diseases will become more widespread resulting in herbicides becoming less effective (North Carolina State University). With these problems arising from increased CO2 levels, agriculture will be deeply affected.
The people who least likely to benefit from globalization as with slavery are the people on the bottom of the economic toting pole. Loss of domestic jobs, large margin in wealth, and cultures that once blended together are now lost due to globalization. In respect to the environment globalization has been the cause of environmental changes due to an increase of number of factories being built, increase in transportation of goods which contributes to the air and water
Humans have escalated the use of natural gas, oil, and coal, that has constructed a major effect on the environment. The quality of air has been severely affected by the increase in industries and quantity of vehicles being used daily. An intensification in volume of CO2 emissions will lead to global warming, change in climate patterns, rise in sea level, and melting of polar ice caps. Which are only a few consequences caused by pollution increase due to overpopulation that is to be expected effecting the ecology and biodiversity of the earth and buildup of human-generated greenhouse gases in the
Trees are being cut down at a very fast rate and we need to do something about it before it is too late. Deforestation has a major effect that is harmful to the world’s atmosphere (TS). Global warming is a result of deforestation and a main factor in hurting the atmosphere. Trees take in and store carbon dioxide, while producing oxygen
“Effects of Deforestation on Biodiversity and Species Extinction in the Amazon Rainforest” Brazil’s Amazon rainforest covers one third of South America, and is the world’s largest and richest ecosystem -- home to more than half of the world’s animal and plant species. FOOTNOTE Rainforests, like the Amazon, are critically important environments in maintaining the health and biodiversity of the plant and animal species living on the planet. However, the survival of millions of species is threatened every day. Among these destructive forces are climate change, poaching, and hunting. However, deforestation – the process of tree cutting to clear large swaths of land mainly for agricultural purposes, like cattle raising, is one of the most pervasive
Nowadays, environmental degradation has become an important issue. This is because environmental degradation is one of the largest threats that is being looked at in the world today. This is because of the depletion of important resources such as air, water, and soil; the destruction of ecosystems; habitat destruction; the extinction of wildlife; and pollution. To limit the impact of these situations, it is important to know the possible side-effects of environmental degradation. Therefore, there are several causes and negative effects of environmental degradation provided in this essay with some recommendations to prevent it.
