With the need for more animal pastures, and grazing land deforestation is occurring globally. To keep a factory farm running the use of fossil fuels to run machinery, and heat barns during the winter months causes even more pollution to the environment. This magazine provides an ample amount of information to prove that factory farming is damaging the environments in many ways, and regulations need to be put in place. "Pew Commission Says Industrial Scale Farm Animal Production Poses." "Unacceptable" Risks to Public Health, Environment.
The article taught me about the problems associated with coal mining. However, “To Dance with the Devil” did not have any personal relevance to me. I am not acquainted with anyone who has experience with the coal mining industry, but the information did make me think somewhat. This text made me consider the lengths to which governments will go to order to achieve financial gain and how they can be driven by greed. Also, I became aware of the fact that something can be economically beneficial to the government, but it can have severe impacts on the environment and surrounding communities.
If having disgusting matter in the water was not bad enough, the amount of greenhouse gas emissions are just as bad. According to a source, most of the gas emissions come from the electricity that it requires to run a slaughterhouse. “The main source of these emissions is from the electricity used to run the slaughterhouses and to get rid of the previously mentioned wastewater as well as packing, cooling and transporting the dead animals” (Farr). The reason why greenhouse gases are dangerous to the environment is because they have been connected to global warming. Two of the most common pollutants from slaughterhouses are carbon dioxide and methane.
People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
Through urbanization, modernization, and global energy demands, people abuse the natural environment for the advancement of the human race. Most humans utilize the environment for their benefit only and lack the decency to show respect or concern for their surroundings. Duke Energy, one of the largest energy suppliers in the United States, serves as the major energy source, substantial employer, and economic contributor for North Carolina. Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Duke Energy provides power to approximately 7.5 million customers throughout the Southeast and Midwest (“Duke Energy”). However, Duke Energy’s coal ash waste ponds are creating disastrous environmental effects (“Coal Ash Contaminates”).
There are situations today where ethics have been compromised because of money or because its easier not to think about. Such examples are that of the cutting down trees for our many purposes which destroys animals homes and our environment. Also by powering factories to make products, releases toxic fumes into our atmosphere. I predict that in the future greed and denial will defeat moral when the government continues to dump oil into the sea which will completely contaminate it and kill all sea
For instance, communities around the sites where mountaintop removal is being conducted are at higher health risk because of the close proximity to the blast sites and sludge impounds, even though everyone in America is affected by mountaintop removal. Rates of poverty are also higher in areas closest to hazardous waste facilities(Mooney).Symbolic interactionist look at environmental issues as a reflection of what we are told from the media. Greenwashing is commonly used in the commercialization of industries that promote themselves to be safe to the environment when the truth is that they are damaging the environment. The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity advocates that the process they undergo to extract coal from the Earth and then distribute it is a
One reason is because of health issues, two because of environmental problems, and three because of agricultural reasons. The big issue about having sugar cane burned is it 's dangerous for people who have asthma. HC&S is risking children 's lives as well as people with asthma when they burn the sugar cane. On May 27 of 2015, HC&S burned the sugar in Kihei and there were no trade winds that day, in result of that Kihei was filled with ground level smoke that is proven toxic. Physicist Joe Ritter says the smoke from these burns are toxic, "This is a serious health risk not just the children but to the entire community."
The "illegal" ideology has always been disgusting to me but, I didn’t really know how it was built. Nativists were powerful enough to start the "illegal" status towards Mexicans. It is humiliation to think America only let in a limited number of Mexican workers in the US. It was also ridiculously expensive to legally cross the border, which was not an option to Mexicans due to their economic fall, and all of the discrimination involving looking for a job. The border has always been seen as an evil place to go through because the way people were treated there; and still do to this day.
Rachelle Black Dr. Vivian Foss English 300 2 May 2016 Deforestation of the Peruvian Amazon: Economic Growth Leads to Environmental Decline Life of any kind is not sustainable without the environment. Likewise, the environment would not exist without life. Animal life and plant life are essential to maintaining a healthy environment because they create stability within the environment’s ecosystems and its natural cycles. Humans have not kept up their obligation to the environment that is so desperately needed. Instead of cherishing it and protecting it as it should have been, we have caused paramount damage to it by polluting its air and water and cutting down its forests.
