In the article "Fisheries Emissions Rising Despite rect efforts"  written by Bethany Lindsay explains the findings about a study on fisheries and their greenhouse gasses emmisions. According to the University of B.C. research, harvesting crustaceans such as shrimp is creating a bigger carbon footprint. From 1990 to 2011, there has been an increase in carbon footprint of around 21 percent per tonne of fish. The study’s leader Robert Parker said that he didn’t really think this result was actually considered bad.

The article “Environmental Impacts of Ocean Fishing & Fisheries” demonstrates that human activities have severely affected the marine life on the Earth’s oceans. Fisheries may be necessary for providing food and for the economy but they are causing huge damage to the environment. Environmentalists are warming us that if the fisheries continue to expand worldwide, negative impacts would dramatically increase and interfere with the trophic level within the ecosystem.

In the article “Climate Change Cause and Effect” by Joseph F. Doyle explains what humans that causes so many consequences. During 1950, the annual amount of carbon dioxide that was released in the air was around 9.2 billion tons. Nowadays, humans use 40.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year. In between Christmas 2017 and January 8, 2018, there was almost a new record made when it came to the amount of snowfall in North America. Other natural disasters such as strong hurricanes, wildfires, drought, hail, tornadoes and flooding have caused the U.S.

The article written by GeoForschungsZentrum Postdam, Hemholtz Centre explains that humans have adjusted the ecosystem so that it can meet their needs for many years. Some lakes are now dead and straight while trees are planted in rows just for the benefits of humankind. For a significant time, there has been a debate in Central Africa about the Amazonian rainforest. After extensive research in Southern Cameroon about the “rainforest crisis”, it was discovered that the transformation was not caused by climate change but by humans.

This present study’s aim conducted by researchers of NASA’s jet propulsion laboratory and the California Institute of technology of Pasadena was to calculate the Earth’s ecological sensitivity towards climate changes. The study predicted that by 2100, climate changes will modify almost half of the plants communities covering the planet. As a result of rising human-produced greenhouse gases, the Earth’s climate is changing tremendously.

The article “Local Balancing Is the Key to California’s Clean Energy Future. Regionalization Isn’t” by Doug Karpa informs the reader about the state of California’s renewable energy setup. The author recommends using an energy system that will support the state of California in the future. This system would include local energy, modern grid operations and backyards resources. In the article, it is also suggested that distributed energy resources are more recommended than regionalization energy systems.
