Lack of clean, fresh water is linked with poverty. Most of the people are dying from diseases due to poor water and sanitation services. Financially well people receive more access to water than poor people. Corporations only think of increasing their profit and they just increase the prices of water which poor cannot afford. I believe the government should contract with those corporations who value water as a basic human right and who are not concerned with earnings.
If more people understood how vital and imperative it truly is, nobody would dare to waste it without a second thought. The key to helping people realize water’s importance is to make them aware of the activities we would not be able to do without , such as ride a car or bake cookies. In conclusion, it is evident that misusing water is not an option during an era where every drop matter. Although most people in the United States cannot imagine running out of water, it is still important to protect it immensely. Responsible and effective water conservation today leads to an abundant amount of water for tomorrow.
Jared Snow Ms. Carrell English 1 AP 9/15/15 Water Contamination Water pollution is any chemical, physical, or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living thing that drinks it, uses it or lives in it. I have spent many hours of many days to research this topic to find out facts of water pollution and how to prevent it. According to Food and Water Watch there are over 780 million people all over the earth that are living without clean drinking water. Another fact is every 20 seconds a child under five years old dies from illnesses that are waterborne. There is a lot of information about water contamination, the main topics are, effects of the percentage of water contaminated, ways it gets contaminated, and what to do in the after-math.
This shows that an environmental threat that blue crabs face is pollution because if about 1 million animals are dying each year because of pollution, we have a serious problem. Furthermore, another ecological hazard that this incredible animal faces is fishing and it’s equipment. According to the text, “Modern fishing methods have created some serious problems for the ocean. The populations of almost all fish species that we eat have shrunken,”(Dignan 14). This proves that another environmental threat that blue crabs faces are fishing because they may not be a type of fish, but, like most crabs, they are fished, caught and sold.
Relevance of topic to audience: Although the sun is necessary for life, too much sun exposure can lead to adverse health effects. More than 1 million people in the United States are diagnosed with skin cancer each year (EPA). So, everybody is subjected to these potential adverse effects of overexposure to the sun. C. Established Credibility: My family has a history of skin cancer D. Thesis: Many people do not use sun protection on a daily bases and are unaware of the health effects of sun exposure that can be easily preventive by using sun protection. E. Preview: Today I want to educate and motivate you to wear sun protection by explaining how sun exposure affects everyone, that there is no excuse for not protecting yourself with all the different kinds of sun protection products available, and finally, to remind you that the simple step of applying sunblock eliminates potential and preventable health effects.
We can help prevent this by not fishing where they swim and not leaving line in the water if you get broke off. The FWC has done a stellar job of enforcing the rules, and I give a kudos to them for doing such a fine job. Small things really make a big difference in keeping these creatures safe. In fact, by keeping these creatures safe, they are now out of the endangered species population by number. They are now close to be considered protected instead of endangered!
Lake Erie could be in a water crisis soon and here is some of the side effects. One is 500,000 people could be without drinking water. Another is people could get ear infections if they swim in the water. Also if you are in a watercraft going over the algae could clog 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).
From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting. Our natural resources are at risk every time fracking occurs. Fracking needs to be banned since it is hurting our health and that it drains our natural and limited resources required for us to sustain life. Water is an essential to living and it is a need. Without it we would be dead from the dehydration.
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.
Everyday, 6 million children die from infections and preventable diseases, but this could end with immunization (“Child Survival” Para 1). Parents and children in Third World Countries are the ones most affected as they lose their friends, family, and children without immunizations. Third World Countries’ populations are being affected by the pollution and diseases in their water and air (“Third World” Para 1). These immunizations are a bigger deal than the human eye can see. Without them, there is trauma that affects the families who lose their children, there is no population stability in these Third World Countries, and there is no help being offered to them.
