02| Life on Land

Unnderstand The World goal

Why is this a world goal?

  • Healthy environments are imparitive to sustain existence on earth
  • Provides food
  • Affects the entire world
What's life on land like?
  • Full of wildlife/abundance of trees and other forms of nature
  • Is home to billions of species including us humans
  • HOWEVER, life on land is not what it looks like

Pollution

Construction

  • Constant renovation and construction can deter and harm any wildlife/ecosystem nearby
  • This dusruption upsets the circle of life and leads to the wildlife to be skittish or act out leading to unnecessary killing

Urbanization

  • Increasing rates of urbanization around the world will lead to a greater demand for use of fossil fuels
  • Air pollution will only get worse due to this

Mining

  • There are several negative effects due to excessive mining
  • Things like Deforestation, Erosion, contamination of soil integrity, contamination of water supply (rives, ponds, lakes), and excessive dust and emissions in environment

Littering

  • Litter itself destroys habitats all around the world and kills over ONE million animals a year
  • Litter cleanup also costs the U.S. alone about 11.5 billion dollars a year!

Agriculture

  • Agriculutre is actually the #1 leading cause of environmental damage in many countries around the world
  • Pesticides, Fertilizers, and other toxic farm chemicals are used in mass and poison fresh water, land/water ecosystems, the air and soil
  • Due to global warming, several probelms have risen like the melting of ice caps, loss in species, mass flooding, etc.
  • Scientists believe that if we as a human race continue at this current rate of greenhouse gas emission then more than a 1/3 of species and plants on earth will face extinction by 2050
Global Problem: Global Warming
National Problem:Devastation of Wildlife
  • Due to mass Industrialization around the world, contamination of water sources and land masses only increases as time goes on
  • These toxicities only impeded on wildlife by affecting their reproductive abilities, increases cancer rates, and limits the fresh food supply we could acquire
  • Pollutants are picked up by flowing water and deposisted into rivers, lakes, ponds, etc.
  • Decreases amount of fresh water available for drinking and leaves it unhabitable for life
