Environmental Issues

Transcript: Aftermath of the Toōhoku Earthquake How the Earthquake in Japan last year has effected the Pacific islands and what damage it will potentially bring. The Tohuku Earthquake took place just before 3:00 pm on Friday, March 11, 2011. It hit just east of the Oshika Peninsula, at approximately 32 km (about 20 miles) underwater. It was the largest earthquake known to hit Japan since modern times, and one of five largest recorded earthquakes. It measured 9.0 MMS and was followed by large tsunami's. This debris will potentially combine with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This is vortex of marine litter that covers an indeterminate area of the northern Pacific ocean. It consists of pelagic plastics, chemical sludge, and other debris. The debris is slowly traveling towards the Pacific coast. It has begun to litter the islands and coasts and is killing millions of sea birds each year. Within the next few years these remains will cause devastating effects. Pick up extra trash in your community Start a local fundraiser. There are many national organizations working to clean up the waste. Avoid buying plastic bottles and other plastic products. Visit these websites for more ideas and information so you can start helping your community today. Nearly 25 million tons of debris from the tsunami are floating towards the Pacific coast. It consists of houses, cars, fishing boats, and pretty much anything else that floats. This will potentially cause a great deal of damage to pacific islands, and to any marine species in the vicinity. The plastic pollutants are endangering birds and marine animals since they cannot digest the material. The debris from the tsunami will eventually degrade into these plastic pollutants over time. There are many simple things you can do to reduce the waste in the Pacific Ocean...

Transcript: water can purify itself but only to a point, but it cannot breakdown the waste that is put in from today`s society. overload toxic chemicals in aquatic ecosystems can reduce fertility, genetic mutations, tumors, and death in fish and wildlife. effective management of our freshwater resources and prevention of water pollution are essential to ensuring the health and wellness to protecting our ecosystems and ourselves. Consuming poor-quality drinking water can have serious impacts on public health, Canada`s drinking water are generally excellent quality, however water is never pure it picks up bits here and there. While many of these are harmless some may have potential risks to our health. most risks come from microscopic organisms these can be severe and also can affect you long term, while there also are chemical contaminants present they are lass common, most or there effects are short term few being long term and can be very harmful. Habitat and wildlife Conclusion pollution is any substance that is present in or has been introduced into the environment and has harmful or unpleasant effects. this can eliminate habitats and cause deformities in animals and reproductive dysfunction. Acid rain can get into major streams rivers and lakes which has been known to kill many animals at a time you can change your everyday habits and practice pollution prevention to minimize and avoid the creation of pollutants and waste. pollution prevention focuses on removing the causes of pollution and waste rather than on managing them after being created. the natural occurring results of a healthy ecosystem such as clean water and air, flood control, pest control, could be jeopardized as a result of biodiversity. Environmental issues After many years of consumption and heavy industrialization the planet is struggling and we are starting to feel its side effects of over-crowded dumps, contaminated sites, acid rain and polluted air and water. some major contributors in Canada are driving, yard work, home energy/ water use. pollution and waste They way we treat our world is starting to have repercussions all over the world causing changes in the climate, ecosystem stability issues, and drainage of resources that are depleting all of these factors have a rather negative effects and repercussions on us as a society and as a whole. our ecosystems are failing and having issues keeping up with our ever changing world because it cant adapt fast enough. this kills off many species everyday. This can have many negative side effects world wide Water And one more thing... Environmental issues Canada is the second largest country in the world, and is home to 25% of the world's wetlands and boreal forests. There are approximately 70,000 known wild species of plants and animals in Canada, more than 500 are listed as being a Species At Risk. The loss of or change in species and habitat can threaten ecosystem health and biodiversity, biodiversity is crucial because ecosystems preform functions that are essential to human existence. It provides us with food,clothing, medicine, oxygen, water purification, and soil production. When habitat and species are lost biodiversity decreases resulting in unstable ecosystems, they are more vulnerable to extreme events and have weakened natural cycles.

Environmental Issues

Transcript: Envir nmental Issues Environmental issues are negative aspects of human activity on the biophysical environment. The level of understanding of Earth has increased markedly in recent times through science especially with the application of the scientific method. Environmental science is now a multi-disciplinary academic study taught and researched at many universities. This is used as a basis for addressing environmental issues. Environmental organization Environmental issues are addressed at a regional, nation or international level by government organisations. The largest international agency, set up in 1972, is the United Nations Environmentt Programme. International non-governmental organizations include Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and World Wide Fund for Nature. Governments enact environmental policy and enforce environmental law and this is done to differing degrees around the world. Solution Sustainability is the key to preventing or reducing the effect of environmental issues. There is now clear scientific evidence that humanity is living unsustainably, and that an unprecedented collective effort is needed to return human use of natural resources to within sustainable limits. For humans to live sustainably, the Earth's resources must be used at a rate at which they can be replenished. 1. Climate Change On the broadest scale, the rate at which energy is received from the sun and the rate at which it is lost to space determine the equilibrium temperature and climate of Earth. This energy is distributed around the globe by winds, ocean currents, and other mechanisms to affect the climates of different regions. Factors that can shape climate are called climate forcings or "forcing mechanisms”.

This energy is distributed around the globe by winds, ocean currents, and other mechanisms to affect the climates of different regions. Factors that can shape climate are called climate forcings or "forcing mechanisms”. These include processes such as variations in solar radiation, deviations in the Earth's orbit, mountain-building and continental drift, and changes in greenhouse gas concentrations. 2. Conservation Conservation is an ethic of resource use, allocation, and protection. Its primary focus is upon maintaining the health of the natural world, its: fisheries habitats biological diversity biological conservation as being a philosophy of managing the environment in a manner that does not despoil, exhaust or extinguish Secondary focus is on materials conservation and energy conservation, which are seen as important to protect the natural world. Those who follow the conservation ethic and, especially, those who advocate or work toward conservation goals are termed conservationists. To protect sea life from extinction due to overfishing is another commonly stated goal of conservation — ensuring that "some will be available for our children" to continue a way of life. The consumer conservation ethic is sometimes expressed by the four R's: " Rethink, Reduce, Recycle, Repair" This social ethic primarily relates to local purchasing, moral purchasing, the sustained, and efficient use of renewable resources, the moderation of destructive use of finite resources, and the prevention of harm to common resources such as air and water quality, the natural functions of a living earth, and cultural values in a built environment. “The conservation of natural resources is the fundamental problem. Unless we solve that problem, it will avail us little to solve all others”. -Theodore Roosevelt Protected areas in developing countries, where probably as many as 70-80 percent of the species of the world live, still enjoy very little effective management and protection. Some countries, such as Mexico, have non-profit civil organizations and land owners dedicated to protect vast private property 3. Environmental impact of the Energy Industry The environmental impact of the energy industry is diverse. Energy has been harnessed by humans for millennia. Initially it was with the use of fire for light, heat, cooking and for safety, and its use can be traced back at least 1.9 million years. In recent years there has been a trend towards the increased commercialization of various renewable energy sources. In the real world, consumption of fossil fuel resources lead to global warming and climate change. However in many parts of the world little change is being made. The majority of greenhouses gas emissions are due to burning fossil fuels with most of the rest due to deforestation. There is a highly publicized denial of climate change but the vast majority of scientists working in climatology accept that it is due to human activity. Biofuel use Biofuel is defined as solid, liquid or gaseous fuel obtained from relatively recently lifeless or living biological

Example of a Deal or No Deal Template PowerPoint Game Templates There are free templates for games such as jeopardy, wheel of fortune, and cash cab that can be downloaded online. However, some templates may cost more money depending on the complexity of the game. Classroom Games that Make Test Review and Memorization Fun! (n.d.). Retrieved February 17, 2017, from Fisher, S. (n.d.). Customize a PowerPoint Game for Your Class with These Free Templates. Retrieved February 17, 2017, from 1. Users will begin with a lot of slides all with the same basic graphic design. 2. The, decide and create a series of questions that are to be asked during the game. 3. By hyper linking certain answers to different slides, the game jumps from slide to slide while playing the game. 4. This kind of setup is normally seen as a simple quiz show game. Example of a Wheel of Fortune Template Games can be made in order to make a fun and easy way to learn. Popular game templates include: Family Feud Millionaire Jeopardy and other quiz shows. Quick video on template "Millionaire" PowerPoint Games Some games are easier to make compared to others If users are unsure whether or not downloading certain templates is safe, you can actually make your own game by just simply using PowerPoint. add logo here References Example of a Family Feud Template PowerPoint Games are a great way to introduce new concepts and ideas You can create a fun, competitive atmosphere with the use of different templates You can change and rearrange information to correlate with the topic or idea being discussed. Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.

Now you can make any subject more engaging and memorable
