Two environmental problems caused by extensive plastic bag use are the chemicals that make the plastic bag and the way we dispose of them. Plastic bags are very dangerous to the environment. The plastic bag is made of toxic chemicals like xylene, ethylene oxide and benzene. Plastic bags are non-biodegradable which means these toxic harmful chemicals are putting people and the environment at risk. Because people don't dispose of the plastic bags properly they get into water ways which eventually affect the see life as well as all other animals and living organisms including plants.
Red is the endangered areas In image 2, the most endangered reefs are in areas that are considered “Third World”, where populations have limited access to education. The people here are concerned mostly with putting food on the table now, later can wait for another day. There is a problem with reef systems today that directly comes from people who probably did not know that they were causing it. Runoff from sewers, especially untreated sewage kills corals by: * Suffocating corals and zooxantheallae by covering them with sludge and cutting off
The building of the Supercenter would also hurt the environment, by taking away multiple acres of farmland to build on. The Supercenter would not want the crops of the local farmers, because the prices would be too high to keep the prices low. This is why the Supercenter would be a bad fit in the small rural town of
Charles Lyell, a British geologist, reintroduced the idea of uniformitarianism when he published a series of books called Principles of Geology. Only then did people start to seriously consider that uniformitarianism was the way in which the earth was shaped. During the late 20th century, scientists began to challenge uniformitarianism. They believed that catastrophes do, at times, play a major part in shaping the Earth. Today we realize that neither uniformitarianism nor catastrophism completely explains what shapes the Earth.
If a human inhales ground-level ozone it can cause chest pain, throat irritation, and congestion. It also affects the wild life as the animals that eat certain leaves and plant which can have problems producing food. Chlorofluorocarbons are normally found in Freon, halons, methyl bromide, methyl chloroform and carbon tetrachloride. The damage CFCs causes to our ozone layer is very dangerous especially since the ozone layer protects us from ultra violet radiation from the sun. If we continue to dispose of these chemicals in correctly it will continue hurt us especially by affecting the brain, eyes, heart, kidney and the reproductive system if large amount is exposed to
Drinking water from the tap tastes different, and its not a very safe thing to do I believe. The chemicals that are used to filter the tap water, such as, chlorine, lead and giardia, are toxic and it’s very dangerous for humans. The process of filtering the water strips out all the natural minerals that are found in the water, and our body needs it. While the bottled water is all natural resources, which means the natural minerals are still there. Also it feels like drinking water that its fresh and tasty.
I have learned that the use of toxic chemicals during the fracking process and the occurring release of toxic chemicals and radioactive materials during well processing is bad for the environment. Such as, Naphthalene, Xylene, Toluene, Methylbenzene, and Formaldehyde, are all known or suspected to be human carcinogens (Schmidt). Also Hydraulic fracking hurts the environment by the contaminating the water wells, and springs, in which many humans and animals drink from. Another environment impact of hydraulic fracturing is air pollutions. Finally the way fracking impacted animal and human health.
Zubair Abedin Block 4 The theme of the story Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury is censorship. They live in the future where books are banned and the people are uneducated. If people have books in there possession then they’re in danger of getting in trouble by the authority. The main character of this book is Guy Montag who is a fireman, but in the future firemen start fires instead of putting them out, they start the fires in places that have books in them. Government should not be able to make personal decisions for society because it disrupts lifestyles and ultimately does not benefit people.
This causes many issues with people and society. There becomes an unneeded amount of people on the streets. This is an ethical problem because the people who choose to be on the streets could be off of the streets but they choose to be lazy and unmotivated although they shouldn’t be because they can relieve themselves of the predicament they are in. This is ethically wrong because people shouldn’t be homeless by choice. It’s not okay because it causes more money to be wasted towards people that shouldn’t be helped at all.
The smaller laws affect us like an ecosystem is affect by the extinction of a small species. The idea people continuously fail to understand is that these somewhat small laws are there to protect from the major laws that can be caused by them if everyone is doing
