I did my research on why I noticed an increase of garbage in the water and it was due to the fact that it rained the day earlier which allowed the runoff filled with garbage to seep into the ocean. I was able to notice an environmental issue just like Lisa was able to in the movie which is another reason why I believe Lisa & I are the most closely related. I believe Lisa’s role in the movie when it comes to environmental issues is most closely related to my life. We both have the ability and will to confront people when it comes to the environmental issues. We also deeply care about the environment more than anybody else and we take notice of an environmental issue when we see it.
“The toxic algae bloom in Lake Erie that provoked last weekend 's tap water ban in Toledo, Ohio—where nearly half a million people were told not to use water for drinking, cooking, or bathing—is a preview of similar problems to come around the world, scientists say, thanks in part to climate change.” (Jane Lee). There could be many fish killed if there is another algae bloom. The water crisis is caused by warm water and runoff. If there is another water crisis it will affect many things. Water crises are bad in many ways so don’t pollute the
When Jerry died, he was also on a British prison ship, died from Cholera like Life, but wasn't buried or was waiting to be claimed. He was put into a body bag with rocks and thrown into the ocean, sinking without anyone knowing. This was the second death in the novel, but most strange due to him being so little and innocent. For Tim, this made him wonder why people would do this, especially to a kid like Jerry. This induces Tim’s decision to become neutral in the war even further.
In schools, the amount of food thrown away is overwhelming and it all just goes to landfills to just sit and rot and go to complete waste. An issue is going around is about whether compost should be allowed to be used for the environment of a school campus. Compost should be since it would help the food waste go to good, it would benefit the surrounding environment of the school, and it 'd help with the problem of landfills being over filled. In the United states, about 30-40 percent of the food is wasted. That waste ends up in landfills and rot to no use or purpose, even though those moldy, rotten tomatoes you threw out have a very good use and it can be the reason why your garden is so full of bright, vibrant flowers and plants.
This was the start of a new era, Chicago was the first city to have all of their buildings made out of fireproof materials, and many cities followed shortly after them. Although this didn’t benefit everyone. Chicago needed a place to get materials from, they chose Singapore, Michigan, a small coastal town. They took lumber and stone from the shore which left Singapore open to all the weather conditions. After a flood and a few sand storms singapore became an uninhabitable place to live, and is now a famous ghost town.
My other neighbors lived because they put boards over there windows and evacuated as soon as they could. There house was perfect when they got home because they put boards on the windows. Not very many people survived hurricane Tera it was a tragic event in the history of the United States. This was the worst event to ever take place on American soil. If you hear about a hurricane you should evacuate as quick as you can because you never know how bad the hurricane will be or if it will kill you.
Every day we bag and throw away our trash, but never really think about where it actually goes. The trash is emptied into the garbage trucks back where the worker throws it and it is compressed. The garbage has this stop called the “transfer station” (Rogers 188) which unloads it. According to the author of the essay Heather Rogers in “The Hidden Life of Garbage” (188), landfills and trash that are building every day are making the environment polluted, which is truly astonishing. The author is describing from her thesis statement that the garbage is isolated, reserved, and surround by protection.
While you're walking down toward your dumpster to throw your trash think about how much food is going to waste just because it's a day over the expiration date. The essay “On Dumpster Diving” by Lars Eighner comes from his book Travels with Lizbeth. In this essay Eighner speaks about his journey throughout his life living on the street and having to join the dumpster diving family. Although the term dumpster diving for him proved to be inaccurate because he lacked the ability to lower himself into dumpsters. He prefers the word “scavenging” when referring to what he does to obtain food and daily necessities.
This number can simply be reduced by recycling plastic, glass, metal, etc. But does recycling actually create a difference? Even though recycling still causes pollution, recycling does benefit the environment because it pollutes less, saves energy and protects habitats and trees from contamination. Recycling does have negative effects on the environment. When plastic is not recycled it can become extremely toxic to
Everyday people buy plastic things from the cafeteria, from plastic containers, lids on cups, and things as small as straws, and like 50% of plastic used it will be thrown away after one use. However, do you ever stop and think, what happens to the plastic? If you’re thinking that it just magically goes away you 're wrong. It will most likely end up in a landfill somewhere or in the ocean, and as you may think that your actions do not impact the world, think again. Everyone in the world has at least used one piece of plastic, adding to the problem of plastic pollution and helping certifying the terrifying statisticc that acooording to the 2018 Earth day video, “by 2050 there will more plastic in the ocean than fish”, which almost is impossible to think of.
Also, the polluted runoff from the litter can contaminate plants, crops, seafood, and flowers, leading to a disruption in ourlocal, and soon global, ecosystem. With LitterBonnie, these problems will not exist.A family decides to visit the oceanfront for summer vacation. One day, they go out for seafood. Little did the family know that previously that year, there had been a huge public event where people had left their trash on the
If we really researched the damage that these things are doing to our precious earth we would want to do more. People would be surprised at the number of cans and bottles we waste everyday. "Plastic water bottles, one after another ---- 80 million of them get tossed every day" stated Mckibben. Many businesses that support recycling now have separate bins with labels such as plastic, paper, or cans. Although these bins are available, we still find those who still throw those items in the trash.
Huck makes it seem like he was actually killed and dumped into a river. Huck says, “Alright, I thought now they will think my body is in the river.”(28) This shows that Huck’s independent because he not only escapes his on his own, he was smart enough to make it look like he died. Another example that shows how Huck is independent is at the beginning of the chapter when he escaped and he needed to survive on his own. He built his own tent and he catches fish to eat. “I made a tent out of all my blankets… I caught catfish and haggled him open with my saw.”(30) This shows that Huck knows how to survive on his own, and how he’s learning how to be
“The Creation is disappearing so quickly.” These are words spoken by Edward O. Wilson in an interview on NPR’s Talk of the Nation radio show, and they are very much true. Current human activities are removing ecosystems and extinguishing species, if we continue to the end of the century, projections show that we could have lost or be right on the edge of losing about half the known species of plants and animals by then. Yet with these facts present, why is no one taking action? The world is dying and it is for the most part all due to human action. We spend top dollar for views of the ocean and overlooking green park space in our crowded cities, but we still distance ourselves from nature as a whole.
Researchers found a thousand- five hundred particles per square mile. The garbage did not only just clog the water but the chemicals in the plastic bottles that can affect the fish the people farm in for a living that could change their life habits and animals that could go in extinct. Plastics have been entering the ocean every year and has become worse since now. By this problem we can start recycling water bottles that we see so we can start making it to use again instead of littering our ocean with plastic that has become a disaster. Not only the ocean is filled up with garbage but it also can cause infections in the water.
