Pesticides are one of the great double-edged swords of technology. Without pesticides, the farms would require more labor and feeding a growing global population would be more difficult and expensive. For every acre of farmland in this country, there are tons of pesticides being sprayed onto the fields and orchards that do not always stay in these fields or orchards. Pesticides are a major threat to the evolution of the plant cycle and to the healthy existence of people not only in this country but around the world. This systematic poisoning of our food supply and killing of bees and butterflies, among others insects that cross pollinates plants and flowers naturally, are causes of many diseases we face today.
Animal rights movements benefit the environment as it maintains the biodiversity of the environment. It is important to note that animals are part of the nature and so to kill or harm them is to harm nature itself. Thousands of animals have become extinct due to human abuse, either by directly killing them or destroying their habitat. for eg. sharks.
The linchpin argument that Regan provides is that the fundamental idea of protecting animals is a unifying force. As a result of sport hunting and commercial usage of animals many species have been endangered and some driven to extinction. Urban sprawl and depletion of natural habitats such as the rain forest have been factors contributing to the loss of animal life. From these problems the obvious implications of depleting species seems clear. The unbalancing of nature has led to many situations where humans have endangered themselves by creating unsustainable environments.
Freshwater ecosystems are of particular concern with water being a vital resource for the survival of organisms. Human interference has played a major role in the introduction and distribution of pathogens into this environment, with the greatest source of biological pollution discharged into waterways being sewage effluent (Mason, 2002). Contamination via faecal matter will introduce a variety of microorganisms to a waterway that is harmful to human and animal health including viruses, parasitic worms, protozoa and bacteria. Moreover, human movement of disease carrying organisms has shown to alter natural disease dynamics within an ecosystem (Okamura & Feist, 2011) impacting on biodiversity, population size and potentially causing economics losses. As a result, large scale management strategies are necessary to monitor and maintain water quality standards so that we may continue to use this resource as an essential component of life.
Conservationists, geneticists, and biotechnologists support this idea because of the technological and scientific challenges involved. However, I believe that de-extinction is ethically wrong for many reasons and by reviving dead species, we might be do more harm to our already damaged ecosystems. First of all, as we already know it, the human population continues to increase at a significant rate thus creating the need of habitat expansion. Humans have been actively pushing animals out of their natural habitat and now many animals are currently endangered and in the brink of extinction – many have already gone extinct. It is therefore said that it is upon us to resurrect extinct species as part of our moral obligations.
Both cause population within the water system. Agricultural Usage Using the ocean water for drinking of livestock and human usage. In 200 to 300 words, respond to the following: Choose one fresh or ocean water resource challenge and describe in detail why the issue has become a problem and how human activities have contributed to the problem. Water population has become a problem that seems to be out of control and we are running out of time to fix this problem. It is a problem because the level of water population we have now can kill the animals within the water.
These findings can conclude that with increased exposure to deforestation plants and animals are limited in habitat reformation and thus cause problematic extinction rates for the future. Based on these concerns I can attempt to answer the question: how does deforestation influence future extinction rates and challenges on major plant and animal species in tropical forests? The hypothesis for several authors in the Conservation Biology stated, “We expect many of the hotspot endemics to have either become extinct or- because much of the habitat loss is recent-to be threatened with extinction” (Brooks et al., 2002). With this hypothesis I can infer an answer prompted by experimental results to relate to habitat loss due to deforestation and extinctions in the future. The vast areas of forests are known as a “hotspot” of the world which means that within it is a vast amount of a variety of species and organisms from plants and animals, containing 1500 epidemic plant species.
Some people believe that it is firmly genes that affect our ways of life, others believe that it is the environment that affects us, and some believe that both of these affect us. A wide diversity of characteristics have been considered in such debates, including personality, sexual orientation, gender identity, political orientation, intelligence, and propensity for violence or criminality (Wright, 1998). Human nature is the variety of human behaviors that is thought to be unconscious rather than learned. There is abundant argument over which behaviors are unconscious and which are learned, and whether or not this separation
If one thing that should be in your mind while you read this is the Florida Everglades and our great lakes. Both are endangered of invasive species because of either the owner’s carelessness or by accident from when people came to the new world. Things that will be pointed out in this paper is the dangers of invasive species and what the opposing views thinks of the problem that is threating animals and our existence. In Florida they have major problems with invasive species like Burmese pythons; during October of last year a crew worker went to Tree Island in the Florida’s Everglades to cut down lygodium vines, which is also an invasive species, but on one of the vines was actually a 16-foot Burmese python dangling from a tree, the crew worker shot the snake and killed it with a shotgun the python killed swallowed a 76-pound deer (Weeks para. 2).
There are many groups that are for and against hunting. The consequences of continuing or eliminating the current practices of hunting may have a profound effect on the natural environment. Sharon Levy, the author of ” Hunting Plays a Crucial Role in Maintaining Natural Habitats and the Environment,” says that with proper management hunting can be a good thing. Hunters help to control the population of their prey. When they become overpopulated, the whole eco-system can be drastically affected.
