The present article is exploring 7 issues that our oceans are facing. It is important to raise awareness about the destructive impacts humans have on them. It also states that we use all the good resources it gives us and we use it as a dump afterwards by dropping all our waste in it. The first problem humans cause is overfishing. We do not think about all the other species that are killed while fishing in the ocean with our big nets, causing troubles in the aquatic life.

In Agriculture’s Portfolio for an Uncertain Future: Preparing for Global Warming, readers are informed that global warming poses threats on agriculture.  Since agriculture takes place outdoors, climate change affects when, where, and how food and timber are produced (Drabenstott, 1992).  Changes in climate can cut crop yields, force regional shifts in production, an increase in irrigation costs, etc.  Luckily, major technological changes have been made in the twentieth century to make agriculture more adaptable.

In the article “The Big Thaw” by Daniel Glick, he reports that in the Glacier National Park in 1910 there were approximately 150 glaciers and now the amount has significantly decreased to less than 30 glaciers. And predicts that within 30 years they will all melt. Scientists have proof that the earth has rapidly been getting warmer, and the cause behind that would be human activity. The burning of fossil fuel and the growth of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have affected the temperature of the earth.

Climate change is a very serious issue today, and it is talked about quite a lot.  A major cause for climate change is the release of greenhouse gas emissions.  Although the world is aware of the main cause (greenhouse gas emissions), there are specific reasons that countries do not always do everything in their power to stop/diminish greenhouse gas emissions.  In “Climate Change Demands We Change.  Why Aren’t We?

The article "World's great forests could lose half of all wildlife as planets warms- report" by the author Jonathan Watts is about how Global Warming and climate change affect the planet but mostly how much it affects forests and life around it. According to WWF, because of climate change from the Amazon forest to Africa, the disparition predictions and estimations are about 60% of plant species and 50% of animal species in the future 100 years. These datas are incredibly enormous and the situation is not improving, the negative consequences are incresing everyday.

In ‘Ecosystem Service Supply and Vulnerability to Global Change in Europe’, readers see just how much global change in Europe can put ecosystems for human well-being in danger.  It is shown that large changes in climate and land use affect the ecosystem.  There can be benefits from this, such as an increase in forest area and productivity and also create more land for more agriculture as well as bioenergy production.  However, such large changes in climate and land use mostly affects the ecosystem and environment in a negative way.  Ecosystem services decrease causing vulnerability.  It is

Environment versus population growth Larry West, an author of the website ThoughtCo., wrote an article on the impact of the population on the environment called: “Global Population and the Environment.” He says that some scientists found that population growth is the main cause of climate change and resource extraction. The earth’s population is now around seven and a half billion people and is predicted to be at nine billion by 2050.
