Transcript of Human Impacts on the Environment

Human Impacts on the Environment
Environmentally Friendly Alternatives
Urbanization
Mining/Resource Extraction
Loss of Agricultural Lands
Soil Erosion
Burning Fossil Fuels
Coal
Habitat Destruction
Oil
Burning fossil fuels creates air pollution which causes harmful materials to get into the Earth's atmosphere, causing diseases, allergies, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, or the natural or built environment.

Natural Gas
Urbanization of Earth’s land surface is one of the most irreversible human impacts on the global biosphere. It promotes the loss of highly productive farmland, creates more demand for energy, alters the climate, destroys habitats, and reduces biodiversity
Water Pollution
Global Warming
Nuclear Contamination
The environmental impact of mining includes erosion, formation of sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, and contamination of soil, groundwater and surface water by chemicals from mining processes.
In simplest terms, sustainable agriculture is the production of food, fiber, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.
Sustainable Agriculture
Electric Cars
Electric cars hold a lot of promise for a healthy environment. As the effects of global warming become more of a concern to people, the use of these cars could become more popular in the years ahead.
Wind and Solar Energy
Renewable energy is energy that is collected from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.
