The immediate effect of the Oil spill impacted the wildlife which included oil-coated birds (Ducks) and sea turtles. “In-situ burning oil” (the burning of oil in a contained area on the surface of the water) was used as a method for the treatment of the oil spill which negatively impacted the environment. Hence, the Bp Oil spill negatively impacted many components of the environment and other factors, making it the largest disaster in American history. The Bp Oil Spill crisis occurred due to the company’s negligence bringing awareness to the disastrous impacts it has cause on different industries. The Bp Oil Spill greatly impacted the environment teaching the companies to strengthen the approach to preparedness and response planning.
Effects of acid rain on leafs Abstract: Because of the over pollution in the world many environment around the world have been damaged and destroyed by acid rain. Acid rain is the precipitation that has high levels of acid forming chemicals, coming from multiple chemicals being released in the atmosphere that combines with the water vapor in the atmosphere. The importance of this lab is to show the effect of acid rain has on a plant showing how it damages the plant over a period of 20 days. This experiment is meant to show how damaging acid rain is to the environment and why we should be concerned about this issue. Introduction: The reasons for this study it to show the effect of acid rain on plants more specifically sunflower, radish, and clovers.
The film leaks the dangers accompanying methane gas drilling of the Marcellus Shale. As well talks about the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. What is uncovered is truly shocking, water that can be lit on fire right out of the sink, chronically ill residents of drilling areas from disparate locations in the US all with the same mysterious symptoms, huge pools of toxic waste that kill cattle and vegetation well blowouts and huge gas explosions consistently covered up by state and federal regulatory agencies. Although music influences political movements and rituals, it is not clear how or even if, general audiences relate music on a political level. Time has shown how music can be used in anti-establishment or protest themes, including anti-war songs, although pro-establishment ideas are also used, for example in national anthems, patriotic songs, and political campaigns.
• Unexplained weight loss. Doctors are not clear what causes colon cancer, but are aware that polyps and an inherited gene mutation are possible precursors to colon cancer. The inherited gene mutations that increase the risk of colon cancer are: Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). FAP is a rare disorder that causes you to develop thousands of polyps in the lining of your colon and rectum. People with untreated FAP have a greatly increased risk of developing colon cancer before age 40.
Why was Haiti so deadly? In this article I’m going to discuss why the Haitian earth quake was so deadly. First I will identify the natural factors (both primary and the secondary effects), then discuss the human factors. There are many reasons why earth quakes are deadly and here are those reasons; the first one may seem quite obvious but the size of the earth quake, also its proximity to the surface, how dense the population is near to the epicentre and whether the area is heavily urbanised and sadly all these are features of the Haiti quake. But poverty can also take a large toll as it increases a country’s vulnerability.
Mountaintop Removal Mountaintop Removal as a Social Problem William Moores Kaplan Career Institute-Nashville Mountaintop Removal as a Social Problem There is an ecological problem of mammoth proportions happening right now in our state. Our streams are being polluted, wildlife killed at an astounding rate, and the landscape changed in the blink of an eye. What is causing all of this you ask? It is a mining process known as mountaintop removal and it is having an astounding effect on not just our local environment, but also the entire world. The practice of Mountaintop Coal Mining (MCM) began in the 1960’s and 1970’s in West Virginia and later expanded into Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
In view of facts that it causes health problems, costs the government millions and is also harmful for the environment. Firstly, smoking has been shown dangerous to health. Tobacco is the cause of millions of deaths and illnesses. It has been known as one of the causes for heart diseases. “Atherosclerosis (buildup of fatty substances in the arteries) is a chief contributor to the high number of deaths from smoking” (Smoking & Cardiovascular Disease).
Due to the reactivity of acid rain, the cell processes of plants are disrupted, and the cells die or become unable to function properly. Although this greatly damages ecosystems, this environmental issue brings concern to society. Today, with our growing population of more than 7 billion, humans have become hugely dependant on agriculture. As such, acid rain has the potential to damage crops extensively, and thus, damage society as well through shortage of food or even famine. In addition, in countries that depend on the production of agricultural goods like Canada, the effects of acid rain can be tremendous.
Another problem is trash lifted by the tsunami waters from anywhere and everywhere, including debris from the earthquake disaster, has also been released and swept out to the ocean. The ocean’s waves and currents distribute the trash, along with the nuclear waste, throughout the waters, polluting the environment, near and far. Along with the physical devastation of getting infrastructure usable again, Japan is faced with environmental issues and daunting health concerns that must be improved, if not solved. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is one of the largest and oldest plants in the world existing for over 40 years now. It is now facing great threat due to the recent natural disasters.
As environmental groups, women’s groups and indigenous groups respond to the devastating fallout of freshwater in particular places around the world, water privatization continues to be an issue that affects a great number of the population. As a country, Canada, and as an outstanding power in terms of global effect, should aspire to be a nation that accepts and has a positive perspective into which other nations should have access to a sanitary water source. This includes ending the water crisis regarding the Indigenous communities in Canada first. As water is the most common substance on Earth, only 1% is suitable for human consumption. The water in communities should not only satisfy domestically, but for agriculture and industrial use as well.
