Bird and nesting spaces are at risk and the plans will bring a big rise in people moving to this area. The infrastructure is not build to absorb this big rise in the population and in the long run the effects will be more carbon dioxide is exposed as more houses, more cars and more traffic will dominate the area and less green space will increase the risk of flooding due to the build-up on the land which currently floods in wet weather. Words: 262 2. A) The data in Figure 1 show that the main waste comes from the construction and mining / quarrying industry however while the waste generated in the construction industry has remained above 100 million tonnes per year, the mining / quarrying waste has reduced between 2002 and 2008 most likely due
Thirdly, the population will decline significantly in the twenty-first century, changing the face of modern families. Lastly, as technology continually advances, human society will become increasingly socialized within and dependent on a technological world. Indeed, these arguments paint a rather negative picture of the future of human society, however there are some positive aspects, like that of technological advancement that will characterize the twenty-first century. Water is an absolute necessity of life, and yet sources of water around the world are depleting. Tickell explains that no resource is in greater demand than fresh water and this demand doubles every twenty-one years (3).
With these checks he saw them as a natural way of keeping the population at a sustainable level. As if the population went over the crisis point there would be misery; were positive checks on mortality would kick in. As if a government wanted to stop or reduce population growth it would use moral restraint were negative checks on fertility would be enforced. Malthus said that population increase had an increased demand on food supply and said that with increased demand would eventually decrease food production. This idea is based upon the law of diminishing returns were increased population would increase the pressure on to farm more intensively and cultivate poorer land leading to poorer yields.
There is a general worldwide consensus that climate change is occurring. 30% still claim it's not man made, but a natural earth cycle. While this may contain some truth, 70% believe it is caused from the burning of fossil fuels and man in general. Although there are many theories on the topic, it is believed to be escalating at an alarming rate and plans to reduce its effects have to be put into action. Waters rising will be a disaster, food will be affected and we got to plan for catastrophes like Katrina.
We will also have air and water pollution that will start diseases for us humans. Humanity’s natural resource base and thus economic security? If we have a shortage on natural resources, prices will go up and only some people will have them and others won’t because they won’t be able to afford it so they will either be homeless or living in poverty 3. Identify solutions to each of the 3 components of your environmental footprint that you listed in question 2. What are the savings of BOTH carbon emissions and money you can achieve via each solution?
* Even though certain species are beneficial from global warming, a lot of more species are threatened by it. Conclusion: * Climate change will more likely to result in extinction of species, but through long periods of time. [ 1-8 ] References 1. Adams, R. A. Bat reproduction declines when conditions mimic climate change projections for western North America.
The main argument here is that the government is slow and doesn’t work efficiently enough no matter how much power they have. In a market economy the people and large businesses such as Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowe’s would be able to get supplies to the places that were hit faster than the government, since there would be more profit motivation. A socialist system has a division of labor and quotas that are issued. The system can concentrate efforts and resources on the major tasks required to aid in whatever disaster that needs help. For example, the earthquake that occurred in Haiti in January 2010, the socialist system would be able to gather the resources needed, such as food, shelter, medicine and building materials, and they distribute them where they are needed.
Scientists have correctly been showing that if we had no greenhouse effect the earth’s average temperature would be much colder and consequently human life would be impossible. In order to understand how people are able to influence these processes, a further illustration of the greenhouse effect can be useful. After reaching the earth surface the solar radiation is converted into heat and reflected to the universe. Because of the greenhouse gases which are able to absorb and to reflect a huge part of the thermal radiation back to earth, the global average temperature increases from -18 C up to 15 C. However the huge problem is that the human race is devastatingly intensifying this effect. During the past years people all over the world have experienced changes in precipitation and increases in temperature.
In many places, agriculture is changing and they are growing fruit and vegetables to export. This uses a lot of water. Demand for water will increase ten times between now and 2050 and there could be serious shortages.also , water could be the cause of war if we don't act now In transport, cars will run on fuel, clean fuels and they will go very fast. Cars will have computers to control the speed of the car and there won't be any accidents. Today, many cars have computers that tell drivers exactly where they are.
This is happening because the demand for non-renewable sources, land is growing, more water is being produced and the higher levels of greenhouse gases and pollutants. Most rubbish is buried in landfill sites and not all of it consists of safe materials. Regular household items can contain toxic chemicals . Industrial waste is also discharged onto the land. Many farmers add pesticides to improve their crops, but these can damage living things, for example if poisonous or toxic materials enter seas or lakes the can easily enter the food chain, eventually effecting humans.
