Good morning every one! The subject of the deforestation, is something which affects me a lot cause trees are also alive and we had to take care of this biodiversity. Let’s take an exemple , In the bresil, we cultivate of numerous bit just for fields and it’s really bad , cause trees are important We would be lacking of cO2 without them and more bit decreases more the air will be missing, and the fauna and the flora will decrease. Here in france we take really care of the bit , beacause it’s really necessary . We should make video, actions, demonstration for reduice these deforestations perms which degrade our earth.

Deforestation usually happens because large corporations need the trees to mass produce something. Deforestation takes away homes of many species. There are many that eventually extinct since they are not able to survive. I watched a video in AP Bio and not only do wild animals live there, but people still do as well. Examples of people still living in this kind of environment are in Brazil and New Guinea. These people could be largely affected by deforestation.The video was called Jungles: People of the Trees
Hi again! I am a high school cross country cross country runner and I run anywhere from 4-12 miles a day. I’ve found that I prefer running on trails and in parks to cities and sidewalks. For a while I thought that it was the softer impact and the more peaceful environment, but the other day I was running down a fairly busy street, I realized how my breathing was heavier than usual. Running around towns is significantly more harder on my lungs than running in parks. The emissions from cars, stores, gas stations, etc really do effect me in a negative way-no wonder I prefer the trails!
This leads me the interesting problem I wanted to point out: as “smog centers” expand and air pollution increases around the world, runners, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts are at a greater risk being exposed to air pollution. It is unfortunate, an frankly unfair dilemma to put at risk those who are working their bodies, promoting a healthy lifestyle, and strengthening bones, muscles, joints. Have we done so much damage to our environment that healthy habits have become unsafe?
On the one hand nuclear energy seems the lesser of many evils because of its “clean” nature as opposed to gasoline, which emits carbon. Ultimately though, I am opposed to nuclear energy because of the danger it presents.
However, the issue of nuclear energy brings up the larger issue that we are pushing the Earth to extremes in order to continue living in a materialistic and consumer society. It proves astonishing that we do not recognize when we “crossed the line” and need to realize that if we are pushed to use substances that could destroy the world so we can continue driving to the mall then our culture needs a major change.
We need to buy less, reuse more, such as clothes (thrift stores!), and use mass transportation
Hello all! I find it particularly interesting that environmental climate change is being uncovered concurrently with discoveries surrounding the human genome. It makes me wonder how exposure to daily emissions, such as unclean air, is biologically affecting humans. And even more so, will we, ourselves be able to see the effect of climate change on us, or will it should up in the genomes of our children and grandchildren. Check out this link (Ghost in Your Genes) which looks at epigenetics, biological changes that occur without changes in our DNA.
For the US, I do not think we should pursue the idea of nuclear power. As stated, it is just too dangerous! There are many other ways to create energy such as wind power or solar power. I think putting lives at risk is not at all worth it. Its is a countries duty to protect their people against threats and adding nuclear power would only create a threat. I do not believe nuclear power is a bad idea, just for the US I do not think it is safe enough.
So I’d love to visit here to explore the beautiful coral reefs depicted, but that doesn’t look very possible.
I wish that Indonesia’s government would try to help with the growing number of illegal fishermen who use explosives and cyanide to kill and stun their prey. Do the fishermen even realize what they are doing to the underwater landscape? Do they realize howthey are affecting so many more organisms than just their prey and coral?
Action clearly needs to be taken against these fishermen and their crimes that are changing a once-beautiful travel stop.
Deforestation is ripping apart the soil of south America which not only destroys wildlife habitat but ensures nothing else can grow there. I feel like a lot of people join the protest against deforestation to jump on the bandwagon without examining the issue, but it really is an important issue.
