Because they serve no real purpose, the water being used for fountains and other unnecessary structures should be used to benefit the community instead. In addition to being aware of the careless use of water, citizens should try their hardest conserve water because it is extremely essential to
The wells the colonists made were risky because of the high chance of salt water intrusion. Also, you have to remember the human waste festering in the water, and even when the tides rush in it doesn’t move the waste out. Therefore, there could be diseases in the water, which could kill the colonists. Remember that the people in the 1600s could not filter water like we can so the colonists (because of the lack of freshwater) had to drink the contaminated water, which could lead to death. This is why I believe that one of the major factors of the colonists deaths is the environment.
In the U.S. hydraulic fracking has been a main source of energy during today’s times, it 's cheap effectiveness makes us think this . People should know how hydraulic fracturing is not as clean and amazing as we think it is. Hydraulic fracking cannot be a sustainable option for America. There are too many faults for it to be upheld in the long run and we cannot depend on it as our main resource of energy forever.
Drinking water sources have been contaminated with explosive methane, as well as other dangerous substances, such as benzene and arsenic, that can cause cancer and other serious illnesses. Toxic chemicals, as well as erosion and runoff from drilling operations, have fouled
Sodium is lost through sweat at higher concentrations, and neither water or even fruit can provide the electrolytes that are needed to replenish the kid’s body. It states in the article that an American diet contains more than enough sodium that a child would be fine without the 270 mg of sodium in that little gatorade bottle, but what child whether they are really young or even a teenager is going to be on a regular diet based off of sodium, sure they might eat healthy but they should still be able to have a bottle of gatorade every now and then, whether it is good or bad for them, it should be their choice on what they want to drink during their games and during their practices. Whether these were made for performing athletes and not growing children, it is understandable that the parent wants what is best for their child but they can not always do that for them when they get older and actually want these things instead of water. I know I would prefer a gatorade over water any day, it isn’t that I don’t like water but it is too plain and doesn’t have a flavor like gatorade and powerade
I agree that, we should conserve our water to the highest point in which we could. I believe that because the drought in California is a huge problem and people are not taking it as serious as is actually is. We should conserve more of our water because it is the most important resource we need to survive. I don't mean we cannot take showers but we should try to cut down the time we are in a shower to about 5 minutes. I also believe that bottled water is not necessary either.
The Flint water crisis includes supplying insufficient water treatment to the people. The water was contaminated and included high level of leads which put people’s live in danger. The city switched into Flint River to overcome financial shortage to the city. Based on CNN, Flint River had poor quality and it degraded because of presence of fecal coliform bacteria presence, low dissolved oxygen, and toxic substances (CNN). These issues with lake should have been prevented the authorities to switch the water source of the city.
Water is a critical source used all around the world to keep our way of life flowing. The use of water goes from regular house needs to creating energy in many ways. Around the world drinkable water starting to run low and the water stored is being contaminated by pollutants causing sickness and death. Countries are going through droughts which affects the water supply needed to maintain irrigation, and public supply. Water pollution is defined as the presence in groundwater of toxic chemicals and biological agents that exceed what is naturally found in the water and may pose a threat to human health and/or the environment.
What medications is Mr. Hawkins considering donating? Based on the answer to this question is whether or not I can justify Mr. Hawkins actions. Some medication can be essentially poison if expired and could do major harm to a person’s body. If this is the case then donating the medications would be doing a lot more harm than good. As pharmacists, it is one of our duties to prevent harm and do the most good.
The biggest risk of water fluoridation is that the dose cannot be controlled once it is fluoridated. One of the benefits of water fluoridation is that it is completely safe for humans if it controlled at below recommended levels. However, it is obviously impossible to control and check the dose of each individual receivers, once fluoride is put in the water. It is difficult as people drink different amounts of water and some people (e.g., manual labourers, athletes, diabetics, and people with kidney disease) drink substantially more water than others (Connett, PhD,
Each year, 48 million food and water borne illnesses will sicken the United States inhabitants, and an additional 3,000 people will die from those illnesses. Food and water safety is crucial to the public because it directly affects people’s health, and without good hygiene diseases will spread quickly. It is also important to point out that many people live in conditions where they do not have access to resources necessary for human survival, and these are the ones that need the most assistance. For many, it is due to the carelessness of food and water distributors and lack of government intervention. For example, the Flint Michigan Water Crisis, a completely preventable occurrence.
I think a huge problem in our society is all this talk about the North Dakota Pipeline. In my honest opinion i think it is wrong. There is many people who use the water supply and if something happens with the pipeline it could contaminate the Native Americans water supply. There is many people who count on the water and use it everyday for cooking, cleaning, and drinking. If they go through with the pipeline act it could kill many Native Americans because we need water to survive.
The toxic chemicals released from extraction were poisoning clean water sources. This lead to increasing cases of cancer, hyperthyroidism, lupus, and renal failure in people located in areas near the present pipeline. These effects clearly show the vast hazard this oil presents for the environment and society. In conclusion, as stated and proven throughout this essay, the Keystone pipeline creates many environmental issues.
The Puget Sound, home to wildlife and some of the business of this region, is dirty. Specifically, it is dirty with the toxins in people’s lives. The Puget Sound may be recovering, but it is still polluted. With people polluting the Puget Sound, people, businesses, and marine life may be harmed. The Puget Sound is polluted, largely because of people’s actions.
Some people argue that natural gases are environmentally safer because they don 't emit as many harmful chemicals as similar oil products (Loris). However, these people don 't understand or have never been informed of the chemicals that are being forced into the ground water systems right below their very feet. New York is trying to implement new hydraulic fracturing regulations that would allow companies to drill an estimated 48,000 gas wells. Some people argue that New York will use these regulations to benefit both the environment and the economy. In reality, both will suffer if the hydraulic fracturing is used.
