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.
This way of improving foods has been taking place traditionally by just crossing two plants together and hoping that the new traits are taken without any negative ones (543). Since this is time consuming and not as accurate, scientists now just introduce the new genes, or traits, through the plants’ DNA. Genetically Engineered foods, although meant to be helpful, pose many problems by causing environmental hazards, human health risks, and economic concerns. To begin with, one of the problems with engineered foods is that they can become hazardous to the surrounding environment. This unintended harm to other organisms is caused by many factors.
Food shortages were a key problem in Russia as it meant the people were starving and desperate. It has consistently been a problem to the rulers of Russia such as the Provisional government. The people wanted change but they also wanted grain to feed themselves and their family. It was important that the food crisis would be solved by the Bolsheviks in order to gain the support of the people; however, due to Russia’s poor transport and little fertile land, it was simply an impossible job for any party or rulers of Russia especially due to the high demand of the huge populace. The demand for food has always been high in Russia which meant that no matter what reforms or radical changes a party can bring in, if they can’t feed the people there will always be bitterness which can and did result in opposition to Lenin and his Bolsheviks.
While the drive for collectivized agriculture was a wide going trend, kulaks needed to be destroyed. Stalins way of doing this was complete taking away all food and grain that they grew. (Doc.6) However the Kulaks didn’t make it easy; they would kill and poison their animals, kill government officials, and collective farm activists. (Doc.5) They would burn their barns and destroyed machinery. By them doing this the Soviets now had a right to kill them, and that was done until there were no Kulaks left.
The inefficient engines consume too many resources so that people are anxious about that. In addition, the pollution is more and more serious in terms of the waste from engines, especially on the greenhouse effect by the exhaust gases of engines. Therefore, engines seem dangerous to the society and the earth. Although they have some negative influence on the environment and resources, it is doubtless that engines are more and more efficient with the development of technology and have changed people's life and history. Admittedly, in some engines such as atmospheric engines and hydrogen engines, they have little waste to exhaust.
This take over has been aided by none other than the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, along with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. More and more they are coming down with strenuous and tedious regulations that don’t make the food safer, just procedures that make it difficult for the farmer who is trying to grow more pure food. They make it so hard for anyone except a Mega Farmer to produce because they require such a large number of crops and animals to be processed in a short length of time as Joel stated in the Omnivore’s Delimma. (Pollan,2006) Just because a group produces more, doesn’t mean they produce better. There is also a direct correlation between the amount of money these farmers contribute to politicians, as to how much hassle is taken in by the farmers.
Colony Collapse Disorder The colony collapse disorder of honeybees has become a very problematic issue. The Natural Resources Defense Council states that nearly that nearly one-third of all honeybee colonies in the country have vanished, putting many fruits and vegetables at risk. A controversial type of pesticide called neonicotinoids has become a prime suspect in this phenomenon, as it affects bees’ sense of direction and making it hard for them to find home. In order to prevent this disaster from continuously occurring, neonicotinoids should be banned or used more sparingly and replaced with an alternative type of pesticide. Author Brandon Keim, author of article “Controversial Pesticide Linked to Bee Collapse” states neonicotinoids began to be used in the mid-1990s as less-toxic alternatives to human-damaging pesticides.
Since humanity was born, people are inventing products according to needs that will make life easier. They have many positive sides, but also negative sides, too and pesticides are one of them. Pesticides, also known as ‘’DDT’s are the chemicals that make the produced products perfect and free the agricultural land from parasites. There are four types of them and they are called herbicides( to kill weeds), insecticides( to kill insects), fungicides( to kill fungi, mold and mildew) and lastly, rodenticides( to kill rodents). It is a very popular chemical and is used over one billion tons just in U.S. every year.
Genetically Modified Food can be accepted Nowadays, with technology’s developing, more and more Genetically Modified (GM) Foods are produced and come out in many markets around the world. However, there are a great number of people who think the GM foods are dangerous and may do harm to their health. Therefore, they can’t accept GM foods. Unfortunately, I believe that GM foods are available in our lives because they have never been proven to harm people so far, they are more nutritious than traditional foods somewhat and they also can benefit farmers a lot for their working procedures actually. Professor Ian Campbell from Australia's Peter MacCallum Cancer Center says that no scientific evidence showing that GM food is harmful to people's health has been presented to date.
For many years mankind have been developing all kinds of technology to make their lives safer and more comfortable. From the day we started, we do make a progress on living qualities and such progress is supposed to make our lives better on this planet. However, it must be recognized, that the progress has been reaching by a huge price: destruction of the Earth. It feels like human cannot understand, that natural resources are not endless. For instance, people deforest grown trees without planting young trees.
