Due to the relationship between crop yield and its revenue, honey bees are also an extremely important element in the world’s economy, as well as its food supply. Dr. John P. Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, writes, “Honey bee pollination alone adds more than $15 billion in value to agricultural crops each year, and helps ensure that our diets include ample fruits, nuts, and vegetables.” This means that honey bees are an indispensable resource. Without the honey bee there would be a dramatic decrease in the circulation of money, which could have a detrimental effect on the economy. This means that honey bees play a significant part in people’s daily lives, and they will be directly affected by the loss of the honey bee population. Due to this, it is necessary that some form of action be taken to protect the honey bee population, and ensure that the safety of the honey bee population does not meet any further
“The Birthmark” creates the theme of Science Versus Nature the battle against beauty and imperfections.”The Birthmark” shows moral ethnicity between science and nature, whether we should see people for their beauty and know that everyone has imperfections Or should we go against nature and change ourselves.”The birthmark” shows us the outcome that thing will go wrong when you try to change nature. When Georgiana dies that shows that her birthmark was meant to be there it was a part of her nature, and when you try and take that away science will lose and Georgiana will lose her life All because they opposed with nature And tryed to change something so natural that it wouldn 't part with her because that crimson hand was meant to be on her cheek
The Erie Canal makes transportation easier. If you look at the quote from Peter L. Burnstein, you can see that "transportation has been a big challenge for most of human history" and that "villages just twenty miles apart once seemed far away from each other". This means that the Erie Canal solved a problem that has been there since man could travel and it changed the definition of far away. The Erie Canal caused a steady increase in trade. If you look at Chart 4, you can see that there is a constant rise of bushels of wheat transported on the Erie Canal from 1829 to 1841.
The government gives the Neskantaga people $250,000 annually, which goes towards running a water treatment system that continuously tests positive for harmful chemicals after being filtered. The confusing part is, is that the government spends $1,000,000 flying in bottled water. Instead of giving these First Nations only $250,000 to fix their treatment plant give them some of the $1,000,000 that 's spent
Eisenhower cites four main pieces of evidence. He first cites the unfortunately high number of fatalities and injuries on the current highways. Eisenhower argues that the more than thirty six thousand wounded and more than one million injured highway users put a high financial burden not only on the individual family who faces tragedy, but also on the nation. In Eisenhower 's report, he states, “But reliable estimates place the measurable economic cost of the highway accident toll to the Nation at more than $4.3 billion a year.” With this information, Eisenhower shows that with an updated highway system, accidents, and thus costs, could be cut considerably. Next, Eisenhower cites the poor condition of the current highways.
However, there is one environmental factor that is being destroyed and greatly affects the sustainability of all regions: the bee population. In Kern County, California, Bret Adee is America’s largest beekeeper and maintains over 92,000 beehives. Adee’s bees are in high demand across the nation because of the dying bee population, known as the colony collapse, that risks the sustainability of future generations. The decreasing of the bee population is
In the end it paved a way for the industrial revolution, the continuance of the United States, and the success of our prosperity. The U.S. sustained a total of 2,200 deaths from the war, while the British death count was in the 1,000-2,500 range. Casualties include death, P.O.W., and injured. The U.S. casualty rating was around 5,000. The British war casualties was at a staggering 15,000.The United States loaned eighty million dollars towards the war effort, and in total the war costed around ninety three million dollars for the United States.
Summary of the article Canada has one-fifth of the world’s fresh water, points out World Wildlife Fund Canada—and the third largest supply, notes the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization. Yet that is only 7% of the world’s renewable fresh water supply, and “the perception that Canada is blessed with an abundance of freshwater has led to misuse and abuse of the resource,” says Environment Canada (EC) out of 16 peer countries, Canada ranks 15th in water withdrawals and earns a “C” grade for usage that is nearly double the average of all of these countries Part of the problem is that Canadians pay much less for their water compared with their peers, according to EC figures, averaging 31 cents per cubic metre while many others pay
This creates problems because it adds to the eminence amount of tax dollars spent every year. In the article “The high price of incarceration in America” by Aimee shows that the average American taxpayer spends about $260 a year that is almost 80 billion dollars a year for incarceration (1). There have been many voters who have been trying to reduce the amount of mass incarcerations that have been going on since the 1980’s. The majority of prisoners who were released between 2014-2015 returned to crime but the rate that they were committing the crime and returning was dropped at an astonishing degree. In the article “Prosecutors Fight to Plan to Lower Drug Sentencing “ by Sari, Horwitz (1) shows how government officials are trying to cut back on the amount of long term sentencing for first time offenders.
So many 22 year olds die due to over alcoholic consumption, so lowering the MLDA would be irresponsible to increase the chance of more fatalities. According to Cdc.gov “excessive drinking contributes to more than 4,300 deaths among people below 21 in the US each year”. Lowering the LACA (Legal Alcohol Consumption Age) would just increase that
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,
