Trees are a vital instrument for regulating the air and the atmosphere. As more and more trees begin to decline, carbon dioxide influences greenhouse gases, global warming, and soil erosion. However, why is deforestation occurring if there are all of these
What if urban sprawl is worse than we thought it would be. Urban sprawl is the movement of cities outward into the natural land. People think that urban sprawl is bad for our environment because it leads to more pollution and transportation usage. Other people think that urban sprawl is bad because it disturbs the natural land and animal habitats. Some people even think urban sprawl is good, because we can build more buildings and that means more jobs.
Mining not only disrupts the ecosystem by getting rid of trees, but also by polluting water supplies when the poisonous chemicals they use to separate waste from the minerals. The pollution effects local people, as well as fish and animals. These acts unfavorably impact the environment and earth as a
Some sadness and truth in the video about over developed/ used soil leads to droughts, hunger, floods, and climate change. Coal strip mining is one habit that is contributing to environmental disasters due to chemicals being released and seeping into waterways and polluting areas. Combined with populated areas in California with large about of asphalt on the ground allows not runoff in to the ground leading to drought. Now humans are taking water from other parts of the country.
Deforestation is when people remove and cut down trees for special purposes such as getting wood to make houses. As Rwanda is a land enveloped in lush green vegetation there are lots of trees being cut down it can affect the ani,mals there by not having food and die and when the animals die there will be less food for people to eat so that will affect people dieing because of hunger. This causes a cycle of so many death that is why it needs to be stopped. Rwanda has already made a ban of having no plastic bags as it is not biodegradable and it affects the environment by it bringing pollution problems which focused on a different thing. In Rwanda they mostly use wood from the trees to build houses and because there are so many people that are in Rwanda at this very moment there are lots of tree being cut down and that will mean so many people will be affected by this as i told you about the
Motor vehicles are an important contribution to society. However, it can lead to traffic congestion, “an excess of vehicles on a portion of roadway at a particular time resulting in speeds that are slower” according to the U. S Department of Transportation. Traffic congestion is an integral part of New York but whether or not its effects are generally beneficial or harmful is debatable. It has a number of negative effects on New York and the health of its inhabitants. However, it is beneficial towards the economy to a specific level.
Several efforts have been made over recent years to maintain a safe and clean environment. However, environmental pollution is getting worst and poses a major threat to the Earth. Environmental pollution is “the contamination of the physical and biological components of the Earth to such an extent that normal environmental processes are adversely affected” (Kemp, 1998, p. 129). There are five known pollution which is in the form of air, water, land, noise and light (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1).
Jeri Ward Professor Lyn Froehlich English 1101 30 September 2015 Pesticides and the Death of Pollinators Our world as we know it may not exist in the near future. Right now, pesticides are eradicating pollinators by the thousands. These essential organisms are the major way that plants are able to reproduce. If pollinators are eliminated, the earth will lose a significant amount of vegetation, resulting in a considerable deficit of oxygen and precipitation.
Air and water pollution are significant problems that Argentina is currently facing. The air pollution is caused by vehicles and industrial factories with subsidized smokestacks. Air pollution also has long term effects on the health of those living in Argentina such as lung cancer, cardiovascular disease and chronic respiratory illness, all of which will lead to a decrease in life expectancy. The problem of the water pollution is particularly highlighted by the Riachuelo river which is incredibly polluted by chemical runoffs from surrounding factories. This water pollution in Argentina also has an effect on the access to clean water that the population has.
The land is going to become fragile to a point that it can become sterile, which leads to a significant problem. Sterile land becomes useless since it will not be able to generate profit. As an example, vegetation from agricultural purposes, would not be able to survive in the land due to the scarcity of nutrients. A solution that most farmers use as a short-term solution is to use a new hectare recreating the same procedure burning trees field, but this procedure involves deforestation of new hectares, which will cause worst problems in the long run, like deforestation. Eventually, non-profit organizations got involved into the problem to find solutions for it.
When this happens it causes adverse effects on the environment. It can be done in a variety of ways from cutting to burning. Either way mass deforestation is bad and needs to stop before it is too late. One culprit of our deforestation is
