In my opinion, I consider that human activities impair our living earth seriously. In the following paragraphs, I will try to detail why I think Earth is being harmed by human activity. First of all, our living earth is being harmed by human activity because people overuse natural resource in the present time. As everybody knows, the population on our earth nowadays increases rapidly so that more people than before have to consume more food provision and daily commodities. To elaborate the above description, natural resources will become less and less when population continue growing.
Scientists believe that global warming is also caused by man-made such as pollutions from human activity. Population also plays a big factor in global warming. (Weeks, Jennifer. "Climate Change”) Global warming has a huge impact on our planet causing significant worldwide climate changes. The major causes of global warming are greenhouse gas, population from humans, and population growth.
Currently, global warming is one of the prominent international issues that affect the Earth, but what is global warming exactly? What causes it, how can it be solved? These are the few common questions that are often asked when people try to understand this issue. To summarize the complexities of the issue, global warming is when global temperatures rise above the average over a short period of time and cause many changes to the environment. Examples of changes from global warming include weather, agricultural patterns, trade, damages in economies and infrastructures (Easterbrook, 2016; & Leahy, 2017).
Waste can degrade the Earth’s ecosystem if not properly managed, not to mention it’s also aesthetically unpleasant. (Tabirsir, 2011) The use and disposal of material goods has contributed to forty percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions (epa.gov, 2013). Our population is continuously expanding which inevitably leads to an increased amount of waste we produce. It is in our nature to want to leave something behind for the next generation or build a legacy for the following generations. In order to continue to provide a future that will be inhabitable for future generations, we must start by thinking on what we can do today that will help ensure a livable tomorrow.
It is everywhere, we see it every day. The Earth is trying to tell us that we need to change the way that we using the natural resources. The pollution of the environment has increased the global warming. The increase of the global warming is bringing a lot of consequences; for example the weather is changing. In our city New York, we see how the weather is going crazy, we facing non-usual storms and extremely hot or extremely cold temperatures more often during the last decades.
To what extent is climate change a bigger global threat than terrorism? Global warming is a term that is used worldwide and brings fear to everyone. The thought of change in our world is a very scary thing. What makes it the scariest is that it is very difficult to be controlled and it will take a lot of hard work to stop it. The climate changes have rapidly increased in the years passed and they continue to increase.
Global warming affects everyone on our planet and it will continue to affect. There was many solutions that have been put forth to solve global warming problem, but the question is whether we will be able to stop it, or slow down. Many of technologies are available that would significantly help to eliminate the global warming, but the main problem is money, since efficient technologies cost money, the government either unwilling to pay, or cannot afford it. Our polluting technology is also a large industry in itself, and government corporations will really need to shift away from this industry if we are ever to solve this huge problem. The future of earth's climate is in the hands of humans.
With such a large number of countries having access to nuclear weapons, and such a high possibility of a global war taking place, it is possible for a nuclear war to break out. Although this may be the easiest way to destroy other countries, it is also the easiest way to destroy what they are fighting from, which is the natural resources. In the end, a nuclear war would have probably wiped out most of Earth’s natural resources, thus, rendering the war’s cause to be useless. As a result, it is easier to achieve peace as it could lead to greater conservation of resources. With such an exponential increase in the population over the past few years, the demand for natural resources has never been higher.
Natural resources and old methods of agriculture are insufficient to fulfill our needs. If science had not come to help, the whole world would had starved to death by this time but with the help of our scientific agricultural knowledge we have wonderfully advanced our agriculture. Now we are getting many folds food per hector from our fields than we got previously. Chemical fertilizers, insecticides and wonderful agricultural implements have been invented and introduced for the purpose. Large dams have been constructed on rivers and net works of canals are working in several countries of the world for irrigating the crops.
World hunger is not just a problem in developing countries. In our communities, we have food banks that assist the less fortunate people and families. 400 to 800 million people world-wide are affected by world hunger and 3 billion people in the world live on less than $2 a day. Economic justice and world hunger will continue to be a problem until the world’s people focus on a cooperative effort to eliminate it. As a global citizen, we can help eliminate the problem by donating food, clothes, and money.
