1. Environment – The surroundings and influences on living things including humans. In my opinion the most environmental issue today is the climate change due to pollution and growing population around the world and the impact they have on the climate, seasons and changes to the planet earth. Worldwide the population is growing and as a result for creating more living space nature has to give away. Nowadays the urban population is larger than the rural population and growing cities are using rural space to expand, sacrificing natural habitats.
Proximity to large concentrations of people is another important factor contributing to ecosystem vulnerability. As populations grow so does the demand fro land. Urban, industrial and agricultural land uses destroy natural ecosystems; therefor the
Overpopulation is a current environmental issue “where an organism's numbers exceed the carrying capacity of its habitat. In common parlance, the term usually refers to the relationship between the human population and its environment, the Earth.” IT is causing deforestation and starvations but we have to grow. Our population growth rate is increasing at a steady rate. We cant really lower the growth rate but we can build more cities where many people can live. 26.
People excrete wastes and litter that flow into water systems, and animal habitats, this is slowly polluting water and killing wildlife. And the more the population grows the more wasted were going to produce and cause pollution and damage to the environment. More housing and buildings being built means that were building over were habitats live, the loss of these forests leads to extinction of plants and animals. Also more people means that more goods (like clothes, TVs etc) are wanted, more jobs are needed so more factories are being built witch is affecting out air pollution, which eventually is destroying out atmosphere. Also more food is required so more intensive farming methods are used.
Greetings my friends, Family, and people of this nation, as you all know in these past years the prices on Fuel has gone up reaching record highs. Even prices on clothing, food, and paper has been going up and with these hard times around us, how are we to pay for these high prices on everyday items? . Forests are depleting slowly to make paper for use, in doing so we are losing food that come naturally and destroying our planet slowly. What if one plant could help fix out problem, one plant that can grow in any climate, on any part of the planet with little care, that gives back to the earth when it dies?
However, as the cities’ expanse, China’s urban population is growing rapidly, so the public health problem increase seriously, and it has become a big issue in China. Gong et al. (2012) argues that the largest human migration happened in China during the past 30 years, and the urban population grew from191 million in 1981 to 622 million in 2009—the rural-to-urban migration is the most important reason (p. 843). With
After oil and other natural resources were discovered, the life style and the environment started and keeps changing. Studies from the Environmental Impact Assessment estimates that Equatorial Guinea’s total oil production is about 320thousands barrels of oil per day. This leads to poor agriculture and extreme climate change in areas such as Bioko Island and Aseng field etc where oil is extracted from the soil. The population is growing on a fast rate, and mineral consumption is growing even faster. Nowadays, human beings are used to a certain life standards such as drive a car, fly around the globe, and Mba2 use of energy.
Urbanization in Lima, Peru Urbanization has been increasing worldwide, with the human population moving from a rural lifestyle to an urban lifestyle as individuals migrate from the farms to the cities (University of Michigan, 2002). In 2000, about 47 percent of the world’s population resided in urban areas, and that number was expected to increase to 60 percent by 2025 (University of Michigan, 2002). When urbanization occurs, large groups of people living in the cities create difficulties with the environment, as well as creating new or increasing the incidence of social issues. The environmental issues include capacity strains on education systems, health care systems, energy resources, transportation, physical security, and sanitation (University of Michigan, 2002). Moreover, “cities have become areas of massive sprawl, serious environmental problems, and widespread poverty (University of Michigan, 2002).” Within the nation of Peru, one of the larger areas in which urbanization has created such problems is Lima.
Since the age of the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th and early 19th century, the world has been forever changed. Human populations began expanding and we now sought for comforts that were not available before the Industrial Revolution. And although this was an age for booming inventions and the growth of the human populations around the world, our natural world was severely affected by our actions then and now. With human race’s need to continue to take up land for farming and for urban expansion, the land available to species that habitat these areas grows smaller and smaller. Not only are we affecting the habitation of species but also due to industrialization and the rapid growth of big corporations, pollution of our natural resources
Global warming has been an issue since factories were introduced to this world; gases and toxins are being highly exposed into our atmosphere causing a tremendous reaction to the balance of nature. This is where one ecological system cannot function without the other throwing off the equilibrium in the world, and causes bad weather patterns. Scientists since 1970 have been warning the government that automobiles and factories are emitting a high level of
