i have to make poster that show global environmental problem of present and future. i got to divide my paper into 4 seprate component and label air, water, soil, and forests and i have to draw 4-10 environmental problems in each component quarter, and on back of sheet i have to say what i do to help solve these problem. i not so good with the environment and how it works but here are some problems i get.
-transportation by automobiles
- burning in stationary resources, residential, commericial, industrial heating and cooling(burning of fossil fuels coal oil and natural gas make carbon dioxide which make temperature rise.
-global warming (species have to find different habitats) sea ice shrinking polar bears in trouble
-coal burning powerplants
-ozone layer(uv radiation)
-Harmful pollutants released in ocean rivers lakes like oils garbage
- farmers use agricultural chemicals in herbecides and pesticides
-pollutants thrown on land like landfills, garbage
-desertification(vegetation nutrients removed)
-Homes for people being destroyed
Solutions to these problems.
-drive less and drive smart
-use less heat air conditioning
-help reduce paper waste
-energy efficient products and greener products
-plant a tree
-less hot water
-reduce reuse recycle
not fresh water, i not understand groundwater. i not understand this meaning :Falling groundwater tables and diversion of surface supplies are the main causes of shortages. i also want to know what this mean :aquifers
I not know what these go under:
Use off switch
encourage others to conserve
change a light bulb
can i please get more things i need some more for soil and forests and water solutions and problems please.
Groundwater is carried in underground streams of water. Our wells go down to bring up groundwater. An aquifer is water that is contained under ground.
Ways to conserve soil:
Rotate crops so that the minerals are replenished
Don't plow to prevent the wind from blowing it away.
Way to preserve forests:
Plant trees to replace trees that have been cut down.
Don't plant lawns and crops in dry areas.
Make sure that gas lines don't leak.
Limit business and housing developments in dry areas.
Your ideas are excellent!
thanks very much ms. sue :) i only got one problem for water what others there be? and i also not know what these go under Use off switch, encourage others to conserve ,change a light bulb
You're very welcome, Mohammad.
Use off switch and change a light bulb are both ways to conserve energy. Electricity is often produced by fossil fuels.
