Would you like to turn your backyard into a bathroom? The drought in California is causing thousands of lives to deteriorate. It is barbaric that the drought has a major influence in our lives. The citizens want to regulate water so they can continue on with their daily lives. Naturally, farmers want it the other way where one does not get to use the water for a long time.
This also has a big part of why salmon are going extinct. ("Sockeye Salmon" 2017) In order to save the salmon people are needing to let nature take its course by letting the rivers flow free to take down the dams and, minimize the amount breeding in the fish hatcheries. People have had too big of an effect on salmon by building dams, causing climate change, and straightening rivers. The human effort alone is causing the population and size of salmon to decrease. ("Salmon Information, Facts, and Photos") This decrease is causing a lack of nutrients in the water and forests.
In order to not abuse our resources and diminish the environments we interact with, it requires strict control. There are some actions that have become a standard for most developed countries; recycle, reuse, compost, etc. These actions do contribute to a greener picture; however, they alone are not enough to live true to my world view. It is difficult to follow my world view and so I began with small changes that overtime will make a difference and perhaps encourage me to make the stricter choices to live more suitably to my worldview. I limit my showers to ten minutes every other day to lower my water consumption, I have removed meat from my diet, and am conscious about the amount of electricity I use.
For my potassium I plan on eating more legumes, specifically white beans, and yogurt would also help with my potassium. Lastly, I want to cut down on my sodium so having a healthier breakfast would assist. So, no bacon or pork sausage, and breakfast would be a good time for me to get that yogurt in my diet and it would work well as a substitute for bacon/pork
This is a result of increased regulation concerning the use of agrochemicals. A decrease in the use of these chemicals has tended to make the wastewater from this sector considerably healthier. If we want to solve this problem, the government should start to build walls in the borders of the Nile River and all water resources, so that when the water moves, it doesn’t hit the agricultural places and take its wastes with it, as long as there are walls, the water will not be able to reach the agricultural places. They also can start moving the agricultural places away from water resources, or at least start making limits between water resources and agricultural places. For example, making a 100 meters space between water resources and agricultural places at least, so that when the water erupts, it doesn’t reach the agricultural cultural
Canola oil is believed to be a healthier choice for cooking because of its low saturated fats and it has been shown to reduce cholesterol when it is compared to diets with higher saturated fat contents. While Pratico considers the research a red flag for users of canola oil, he would not tell people to stop using it. However, he thinks there is insufficient evidence to claim that canola oil is a healthy alternative to olive oil. The next step is to compare corn oil and a diet richer in animal fat. Pratico also wants to alter doses of canola oil to see how much is needed to cause brain change and if these changes are
This severe water pollution problem has severely affected the life of all Tianjin residents, including me. People 's lives cannot be separated from water, but the price of household water purification system is very high; therefore, not all families can afford. Then the poor are forced to use the polluted water. Their health will suffer great harm and also may increase the risk of infectious diseases. Thus, the Government may need to invest a large amount of money for medical needs of urban residents.
This is fine, but whole grains are still required for a healthy diet. A person on this diet long term would have to find ways to add whole grains to their diet. If these changes were not made over time then participants would start to experience the effects of anemia from the iron depletion. This is a diet that I would recommend to someone who is trying to lose weight in a healthy way. It was only deficient in a few nutrients based on one meal plan, so there is potential for other meal plans to pick up the slack where this one fell short.
I know most will not cut beef out altogether, but it is the little things like not having steak for one meal that have the biggest impacts. Or if people cannot bring themselves to eliminate meat from their diets, trying to buy more meat from cattle that are somewhat local to them can help reduce transportation fossil fuels. Wherever you stand, everyone can make choices that improve the health of our
A behavior that I struggle with and would like to change most is my unhealthy diet. When I looked back at my family medical history I learned that my grandfather died from a heart attack, and I don't want that to happen to me. I think it would help me lose weight and prevent me from getting heart disease if I stopped eating so much junk food. It is a challenge to eat healthy because usually the unhealthy food is cheaper and tastes better. I've tried to diet before and I end up craving sugary or salty foods because they taste better than fresh foods.
“You’ve got to put reasonable restrictions so people are only pumping out a reasonable amount of water that underlines their land.”(Khokha 3). California’s new law might affect farmers right now but will help them in the future. If California doesn’t regulate groundwater we will be in serious trouble in the future. If farmers keep wasting the water we have right now, we won’t have enough in the future. Regulating groundwater may also help people in need for water.
Due to a shortage of water in California, the governor has proposed a diversion system to move water from the Northern California to Southern California. As for this will probably help since there is more farming, and more climate changes in Northern California. This will make a big bad and good difference. First, it will be a bad situation because then the farmers will not have the water they need for their crops, animals, etc. But at the same time farmers should have a limit of water they can waste for their needs.
People need to start putting their foot down and help make other people who are not aware of the situation more aware. Without water we will lose essential needs that we need to survive such as food and energy. Due to the climate changes and warmer weather, people need to become more aware of how serious the water scarcity is. As listed above there are many ways that people are trying to prevent the drought from continuing but the people who are using the methods to prevent are the people being affected by it now. All states need to take part in this prevention before the drought gets more out of control and it potentially taking all of the water resources.
Ecology Lab California is currently in a water crisis where we are in a loss of water. Californians need a solution to this water crisis or else the entire state may be stuck without water to supply our water needs. Water is necessary in all of California to maintain a sustainable biodiversity. In order to survive, we need to figure out ways to reduce water use in California, which is famous for its farming and weather. Farmers need to find a new way to reduce water.
The first food diary had a lot of salads as main meals while the current food diary reflects the cooler temps with soups, squashes, and meats. In both I eat a lot of veggies so that has not changed. I do try and eat according to the seasons which I believe is healthier so I am not overdoing one food group. The one change I will be implementing is giving up coffee and switching back to matcha tea. Some articles say that coffee has health benefits but for me I think it is hard on my adrenals.
