Transcript of Tragedy of the Commons

Tragedy of the Commons
An economic problem in which every individual tries to reap the greatest benefit from a given resource.
Tragedy Of The Commons
By Kelley Horan

How Pollution Relates
Pollution relates to the tragedy of commons because the share of resources between nations is very misused. When the nations try to make a gain for themselves they usually neglect to take care of the environment afterward. The ocean is a good example. Garbage has begun to accumulate in the center of circular currents because many different countries allow solid waste to enter the oceans from land or ships.
Habitat Destruction
Habitat destruction is a geological processes where climate can change by human activities such as the introduction of invasive species, ecosystem nutrient depletion, and other human activities.
How Habitat Destruction Relates
Habit destruction is caused by human activities such as fragmentation, and degradation which can greatly harm both humans, animals, and our environments. Destruction is instant and the species have little to no time to adapt. The animals must move if they are to survive at all. Plants must adapt to the newly compacted land or find a way to disperse their seeds elsewhere. If animals and plants fail at adapting they can eventually become extinct.
Use of natural resources
The use of natural resources is we use substances that can be replenished over a period of time, such as sunlight and timber, and also nonrenewable natural resources, which are substances that are in a limited supply and will run out, such as fossil fuels, oil, natural gas, and coal and nuclear energy.
How The Use Of Natural Resources Relates
Most natural resources are shared by many. There usually isn't a good or practical way to regulate the use of certain resources such as air, groundwater, and surface water. Regulation is one way to stay sustainable, it is the least undesirable strategy, since unregulated natural resources eventually can run out causing big problems for many societies.
Pollution is the contamination of soil, water, or the atmosphere by the discharge of harmful substances from human activities.
