Albert Einstein once said, “If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.” Without bees the world will have a devastating couple of years after losing the majority of crops and agriculture. Never could the world survive or function properly without the existence of bees. In an article by the BBC, they say, “Bees pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. Honey bees are responsible for $30 billion a year in crops” (What would happen if bees went extinct). If bees were to become completely extinct, the world would be facing a major food epidemic.
The Great Depression was one of the worst Economic Failures in United States History. In 1929 the Unemployment went to it’s lowest point before the Wall Street crash. On October 28 1929 the Stock market Crashed resulted in a total of $30 Billion Dollars with 14 Billion being lost on October alone causing many of the businesses to go Bankrupt or lead to a downsize of their company 's . By 1930 Unemployment reached 8.9% average for the year causing many people to stealing or starving to death. In the June 17, 1930 The Smoot-Hawley Tariff was passed to attempting to protect American Businesses and Manufacturing from Foreign competition.
The Dust Bowl negatively affected people who lived there in a personal way. By 1940, more than 2.5 million people had fled from the regions affected by the Dust Bowl. Nearly 10 percent moved to California. It was devastating for generations of families because it changed their lives forever. (History.com staff) “2.5m people fled the areas that had been affected by the dust bowl”.
What would you say is wrong with Earth? For example maybe it’s global warming, homelessness, unemployment, species going extinct, resources running out or maybe you would say that it’s pollution. Pollution not only affects humans, but also plant, animals, and the environment. Pollution is a huge problem that is both continually becoming worse and is hard to fix. Humans have been creating problems for as long as they have been around and they are still creating them like the “Dust Bowl” of 1935 or the recent smog in Delhi, but all problems have a solution.
When Jews were being blamed for supposedly bringing the plague they then moved east to Poland and Russia (Whipps). This caused almost every single Jew to leave Europe and most of the population was wiped out because of the plague, a quarter and a half of Europe 's population had then decreased (Woodville). This did not just happen to Europe, it also happened to places in China, India, and other lands to the east of Europe. Europeans daily life did not help from trying to prevent getting the Bubonic Plague. People were not very sanitary and had lots of rats and invested animals that lived in their homes, and people shared their beds and clothing which caused diseases to spread more rapidly from one person to another (Orent 144).
The use of pesticides and the destruction of their natural habitats are killing bees, despite these being fairly solvable issues. Awareness of this issue has been getting larger, but so has the threat of the bee’s extinction. Many still have no idea how people can help their declining population. Saving the bees is an important and urgent cause because of the nutritional, economical, and medicinal benefits they provide us with and the increasing threat of their demise. Although it is unknown to many, bees are the workers behind the making of a lot of food and money.
In the wake of the financial crisis of 2008, many department stores struggled and were still able to remain in business while other department stores could not keep afloat and had to close their doors. By the end of 2008 the world 's major economies were in recession. This led to almost two million jobs lost in the U.S. This also resulted in the rate of unemployment rising to 7.2%. Due to the huge amount of layoffs taking place, the monthly income of families were dropping causing for dramatic cutbacks in consumer spending.
Many did not see success in their agricultural products and sold their lands at extremely low prices. Some immigrated to the United States to have better opportunities, economically wise. NAFTA was intended to decrease the number of illegal immigrants but the exact opposite happened. “By 2006, there were more than 20 million” (The Failures of NAFTA, coha.org) illegal immigrants and two thirds of those people were motivated to move to America because of NAFTA. Others migrated to northern Mexico, where advanced technology for agriculture is prominent.
Water supplies can be effected by post-fire erosion and stream sedimentation. In addition, if an area’s aesthetics are impaired, local property values can go down and it could take a long period of time for values to return to their original height. Wildfires can also lead to the closing of schools due to the poor air quality. For example, the 2007 California wildfires forced nearly 1,000,000 people out of their homes and during the span of about a week there were dozens of schools closed down throughout San Diego County and neighboring counties due to the poorness of air quality. It is evident the wildfires of California can be extremely dangerous and can cause serious ramifications, thus we need to do
“Ring around the rosy, Pocket full of posies, Ashes, ashes, We all fall down,” this tune can be heard today being sung by children, but the meaning of this song goes deeper than just a children’s song. This song is about the bubonic plague, the bubonic plague was a very dangerous disease that caused devastating effects all across medieval Europe. But why was this disease so devastating? Some reasons could have been: lack of medicine, the large death count, and the mass hysteria caused by the disease. These things are what made the bubonic plague such a devastating event in history.
The risks begin before the insecticide has fully broken down which does not persist for long periods of time. The most affected creature are the bees that are coming into contact with the insecticide. The aerial spraying in North Carolina resulted in the death of millions of honeybees. The product used, Trump, which contains the pesticide Naled, is labeled to be highly toxic to bees. Many beekeepers were not warned about the aerial spraying which resulted in the loss of their colonies.
Based on a scientific analys , the very accelerated loss of species that we are experiencing could be up to 1,000 to 10,000 losses per year. these losses do not only include wild animals or mammals that are constantly haunted , but also small pollinators such as bees. the bee decline is a an issue that is currently affecting most of North America and many countries in Europe , but the number of bee colonies are increasing in China . But if this issue is not solve as soon as possible , and the decline increases it will eventually become a worldwide issue. therefore , let 's dicuss the causes of this instinction , its effect and what are the solutions that can be used towards solving this problem.
Honey bees also produce about a third of the world 's food supply, and if honey bees died out, many plants, including food crops, would die out. Bee colonies are starting to stop functioning completely to a disease known as colony collapse disorder. Colony collapse disorder is most likely the effect of pesticides, disease, and environmental problems. When bees are outside of the hive pollinating various plants,
Both these farm methods share a concern: the ratio of edible substance an animal can produce in relation to the amount of food an animal is fed. The factor that differentiates them however is the different lengths to which these arms will go to increase profit. Many factory farmers will put mature chickens into a barn with little to no light and minimize their diet, almost to starvation for two to three weeks at a time. After that time period the factory will turn the lights back on for sixteen hours a day with a high protein diet. The change in stimuli makes the chicken believe it is spring, and in consequence, lays eggs.
Both, urban and rural Americans suffered during the Great Depression, but not in the same way. Many urban Americans had to deal with living in large communities of homes made out of cardboard boxes due to homelessness and lack of food in the cites (Schultz, 2013). At the same time, rural Americans were losing their farms due to the crops as a result of the drought. The Great Depression was a perfect time for the Communist Party of the United States to thrive, as a large portion of Americans believed that Capitalism was the cause of the whole thing. However, others such as Bonus Army, also used this time to further their cause of getting back pay for serving in World War I.
