Bees in Decline Honey bees visit around 50-100 different flowers in one collection trip for honey; What would happen if millions of hives are declining in populations? The decline in bees is a serious problem that could cause the beautiful spring colors to turn dark and saturated without colors. This epidemic is worldwide, and could be a serious problem, more than one third of what goes on your plate is made with products that have been pollinated by bees (The Bees in). The bees have been declining in most of Europe because of the rough cold winters they have had the past years dropping their populations by almost 53%, as well as pesticides dropping the populations and killing of the entirety of a single hive (). This problem could cause a
Thus, when forests are removed, it is less likely to rain. There will also be lesser trees to facilitate more water to infiltrate the ground and funnel water into underground aquifers where it is stored to supply during droughts. Hence, deforestation has resulted in flash flood during heavy rainfall, and without the roots holding the soil, it will eventually lead to soil erosion. Furthermore, the soil will be washed away into rivers when there is heavy rainfall, causing river carrying capacity to be reduced and thus, increasing the risk of floods. Both droughts and floods carry severe consequences as eroding topsoil, flooding rice fields and filling in irrigation canals will constrain food production.
Miller (2017) reports that deforestation contributes to global warming by increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, which will cause the heat to rise to an unbearable rate especially in the Middle East and African countries. That will make those places uninhabitable and force people and animals to immigrate to places nearer to the poles. Having an immense number of people and animals in one place can result in food and water shortage and inner conflicts. Also, having people neglecting their countries and culture can lead to a loss of identity and individuality. Another effect will be that wood will be expansive because of its rareness, and that will trigger criminal to illegal cut the remaining trees for profits.
It used to be a beautiful island but is now ruined by trash. Even Mount Everest has a lot of trash on it. If you can prevent teenagers and adults from littering, the Earth will become healthier and will last longer. The Earth is dying and one of the reasons is too much trash being dumped in trash in the landfills and in the oceans. “Each year 250,000,000 pounds of trash are littered in the U.S.”(“Eye-Opening Statistics”).
Wildfires can destroy entire habitats of plants and wipe out life over miles of land. Once these fires clear large areas of vegetation the loss of plants can heighten the risk of significant erosion and landslides. In sudden rainfall these cleared areas become extremely dangerous and some observers have even reported soil “glassification,” where the silica in the soils become melted and fused, forming an impermeable layer in the soil. This impermeable layer can make it very difficult for future plants to grow back and for animals to re-inhabit the area. Although many don’t think of a benefit to wildfires in the biosphere, there are some positive outcomes of wildfires.
They might have rainy years, but overall they cannot bring back all the water that has been already used up. The water level in Lake Mead is also challenge. The reservoir which is the source of water to many people has seen the water level change drastically. There not only is it how much of it is being used up, its also the rate of how quickly it is consumed. In only a few decades the water level has dropped drastically.
However I do not think that our climate is as fragile as it was portrayed in the film. Global warming and human influence have both negatively impacted our climate so much so there is a huge temperature change that causes weather anomalies. When something is in a fragile state it is delicate, or breakable. The film portrays that in a sense our climate is breakable. Although the film was sensationalized and presented an unrealistic time scale some of the information was true.
Global Warming is another huge threat to this biome. This threat is also getting progressively worse because of the deforestation. Deforestation is causing temperature changes, the lossage of the process of photosynthesis, and the shelters of many animals homes. Flooding in the tropical rainforest is not a major concern but it can sometimes be a threat. Although they normally are very common.
The next century, melting glaciers and expanding seawater will affect wildlife that cannot survive in hotter environments. They may become extinct. Finally, our health is in danger as well, as the Climate Changes could result in the spreading of certain diseases such as malaria. Because if you have ever live in a hot or humid climate you have alot of mosquito's. Specially with all the flooding of major cities on coast line because of the rising sea levels, a greater risk for individuals to become heat casualties , and the air quality will be thick and may not be that good
Climate Change is the global weather pattern. Ever since the 1800’s climate change has been a problem even though very few people know about the issue. The weather is naturally supposed to increase and decrease over a period of time, this is no the case. Climate Change is real because the weather is not the only thing heavily impacted and studies have proven this to be correct. Over the years, the climate has changed dramatically.
