By reducing our use of technology we will be more aware of how our actions affect other species and we can tailor our actions to benefit them rather than harm them. Singer’s statement of every species being considered equally can also extend to plants. While they do not experience suffering, they can be considered our equals to an extent. They are living organisms and do require certain things, like water and sunlight, to be kept alive. This means that we should treat plants with a certain amount of respect such as not cutting them all down or destroying environments for our benefit because plants are living and do benefit us in ways such as keeping animals alive and providing the world with

The history of white Australia from the 1840s to the 1890s is influenced by the dramatic growth of economic activity, resulting from the expansion of the pastoral and mining industries and of the urban centers. The gold rushes of the 1850s provided some stimulus, especially in Victoria, but the important factors behind the sustained economic boom of 1860-90 was migration, British capital investment and active colonial participation in the development of public works, pastoral farming, mining, small-scale manufacturing and urban land transactions. One effect of the boom was the rapid urbanization of Australian society. By 1891, nearly one-third of Australia’s inhabitants lived in the colonial capital cities, and almost two-thirds lived in cities and towns; as a result, Australia had become the most urbanized country in the world.

This rapid urbanization has put considerable strain on infrastructure, which translates to higher costs for the government and inhabitants. Specifically, these costs are sourced from increased pressure on housing, food and basic amenities such as water, with the most overall danger being increased and rapid inflation (Higget).
