In the article “Loss of Bees Bad for Plants” by Chris Palmer published from The Scientist. The author writes about the horrible consequences of the loss of bees on the plants and the ecosystem in general. Bees have a “a monogamous relationship between pollinators and plants, ensuring that plants receive pollen from their own species.” (Palmer, 2013). Therefore, one of the consequences is that because of low pollination, plants can’t reproduce, spread and grow. In addition, this can prevent some of the production of foods such as honey in which it depends on pollination.

The purpose of John Greig’s article “Agriculture Major Contributor to Lake Erie Algae Blooms” is to discuss the effects of agriculture on bodies of water. One of the major causes of algae blooms in bodies of water is the fact that farmers don’t soil-test their soil. Another major cause of algae blooms in bodies of water is the fact that farmers are applying more Phosphorus than is needed. Greig points out that there are many different production practices amongst generations of farmers such as applying an excessive amount of fertilizer.

The purpose of this article is to demonstrate that if Cape Town’s water supply keeps decreasing, the city will face Day Zero, which means all taps will be turned off, in April. The evident cause of this water scarcity is climate change, as the city is vulnerable to more and more droughts, but Onishi and Sengupta, the authors, explain that there are many ways through which the city could have avoided this situation, especially while remembering that Cape Town was awarded the “adaptation implementation” prize for their water conservation methods.
