Unfortunately, Brisbane residents are unable to conserve water without restrictions, which is why the restrictions system is utilized by local government. Brisbane residents have lived with level 6 water restrictions for the past 2 years and as they have been so limited there will undoubtedly be a self indulgent splurge by almost ever house hold. The dams won’t be able to handle the rush and it will only result in short term gain for long term loss. On level 6 water restrictions, the parameters for water use are 140 liters per person per day. At 40 per cent of the reserves, water restrictions will be reduced to level 3 which is 170 liters per person per day.
It’s a waste because clean water is not an abundant resource and it will eventually run out. The amount of water used per year for fracking needs to be monitored. Earlier this year in Northern Ohio, over 400,000 residents were left without safe water due to widespread contamination. Residents were even advised not to shower due to the
For example on November 6th 2010 the house of the Gladiators collapsed due to general deterioration and also heavy rainfall – see source B. Much of the site is closed to tourists because of the danger of collapse. Also artefacts are damaged from the natural environment with carbonised remains from Herculaneum disintegrating in days after being exposed to the air
#1 Essay 10 of the book Second Thought tells us that money has important impact on issues of mortality and health. “According to the World Health Organization, 1.2 billion people around the world suffer from serious illnesses attributable to poverty.” (p.104) This is because of the poor health care and the bad life quality that low-wage workers have. The fact has been proved through Ehrenreich’s journey in Minnesota where housing was a serious problem. With only 7$ an hour at Wal-Mart, she could only afford a room in Clearview motel with no bolts on the door and no screen on the window. The author felt exposed and unsafe.
It is similar to source Y in that its main message is to describe the conditions of the camps, as well as the lack of shelter and horrific weather. However it does disagree with source W, content wise as it says that in the last two weeks, hardly any supplies have reached the troops which they say is due to the weather. However it does not suggest any blame attached to the supply methods of those back home, and only to natural causes. As well as this source Y supports source X in the suggestion of disease spread, saying that all cooking was done outside, with the rain often putting the fire out. This alludes that disease spread as he food was unable to cook properly and therefore people may have caught disease from food poisoning.
Also, they would dump their human waste into the water and make it even more contaminated so when the people of Jamestown would drink or use the water it would make them ill and even to the point that they died. Within a couple of years they also faced drought which many people died because of starvation. The colony went to desperate measures by forcing the Indians to trade their grain, the Indians didn’t give up easy though as it says in the document ‘some harshe (harsh) and cruwell (cruel ) dealinge (dealings)by cutting of towe (two) of the salvages (Indians) heads and other extremities.” Another reason why the colonist died in the colony of early Jamestown was because of the skills they had. When the first ship arrived in Jamestown they brought over a total of 110 males in 1607. 47 of the men were gentlemen, back then, a gentlemen was a person of wealth who was not used to working with his hands.
During the 1930's Canada was going through a tough time and that was because of the Great Depression. They suffered through a drought that lasted for ten years providing the cities with no crops, overproduction of goods allowing there to be not enough goods later on, unemployment causing people to go through poverty, and the stock market crash where people lost everything due to the loans they made to pay for their stocks they wanted to sell in the future. All of these events had a major contribution to the Great Depression, but the main causes of the Great Depression were unemployment, the drought, and the stock market crash (also known as the trigger incident). Unemployment was one of the main causes of the Great Depression. While many people were buying on credit, they needed to pay off their debts and as long as they had jobs they were able to
Many of the valuables and memories could not be replaced. Very few people along the Texas coast had the proper flood insurance so homes were unsuitable to live in and lack of money to fix them. Many people abandoned their damaged homes and moved to higher
Ashly Gourdie English 101/504 Dr. Martinez October 15th, 2012 The Waterless State Do you ever wondered what it be like if one day you go get a drink of water but no water was coming out of the fosset? Well, in New Mexico there is a high risk of drought but people keep thinking that there is a limitless amount of water. Despite how much rain fall New Mexico gets each year, millions of gallons of water are being used each day by corporations’ and the people. But when the time comes for people to start realizing the effects it has on the water system it might be too late. Well the U.S. Geological Survey released a report showing that Albuquerque was pumping out its ground water nearly three times faster than it could be replenished (174).
According to Everglades.org, they’ve “contributed to nearly 70 percent of extinctions in the United States” and are the “primary cause of species endangerment.” The water itself is a major cause of decline to the area, firstly because of poor water management leading to water levels being too low or too high at the wrong times has caused a decline in many species. Secondly, poor water quality has had devastating consequences. The pollution and an abundance of toxins and nutrients has helped to kill off many living things in the
