How The Rainforest is Being Developed

How The Rainforest is Being Developed
The rainforest ecosystem is under threat from destruction by humans. Many countries and businesses want to take advantage and exploit the resources of the forest. Many organisations want to develop the rainforest as well. The many reason for exploitations are: Logging: Expensive wood such as mahogany is cut down by logging companies and exported across the world. [image]Cattle Ranching: Large areas of the forest have been cleared for raising cattle, which can then be sold for their meat. Roads & Buildings: Land in the forest needs to be cleared to make space for industrial buildings, accommodation for the workers and for building roads to get goods in and out of the region. Mining: Many rainforests have huge reserves of minerals such as gold, iron ore and copper. These are used in industries throughout the world. To get at these minerals, vast stretches of the forest must be destroyed and mines excavated. Mainly the rainforest is used for resources, sometimes industries might develop the rainforest but soon deforestation occurs and issues occur.

How to Conserve Water

How to Conserve Water
The environment in Butler County continues to grow everyday with people and living things. As our community grows, the need for water conservation is high.

People use water for baths (the average person spends about five minutes in the shower), to cook food, to wash there hands, to drink, to water plants, some people use water to fill up pools, wash cars, wash cloths (it takes about thirty-three gallons for a washing machine), and to wash dishes. I think the people in this community would save if the daily use of water for plants and the smaller items were cut down. The average use for water a month is 820 gallons.

Many of the countries of South America have experienced severe balance of payments deficits. In order to encourage development and solve these problems, the governments have engaged in misguided and largely unsuccessful development projects in the rain forests. Ranchers have cleared the forests to raise cattle. Colonization projects have brought small farmers into regions that were once virgin forest. The farming practices that were developed in temperate regions are not very successful in these areas. The land is quickly depleted and the farmers and ranchers clear more forest. The authors of this article suggest that this pattern is not necessary. They explain that simply by following the models of sustainable resource extraction practiced by the indigenous people of the area, the resources of the rain forest can be utilized sustainably. The areas in which sustainable resource extraction is being investigated include gathered products, wild game, aquaculture, agriculture, and resource units. The authors explain each type of resource and touch on how each can be extracted sustainably with the help of indigenous models.



Forest fires the 10 a.m. policy

Forest fires the 10 a.m. policy
The 10:00 a.m. policy and the let it burn policy are both good ideas in theory but the aftermath to them are both costly in their own ways and helpful in others.

Then there is the let it burn policy which also is extremely dangerous to the environment because it destroys millions of acres of land and for a period of time before the re-growth a lot of animals lose their homes.



Life

Now, I point out a very important thing for keeping a happy life. That is you cannot live happily if your neighbours are unhappy and sad. You cannot enjoy your full meal if a neighbours of your lies in starved condition. Conversely, if you find that your neighbours are happy, happiness will automatically come to your mind.

Besides, you should sincerely try to alleviate their sorrow. Here lies the true sustenance of one's happy life. So, you should try to make others happy in order to live happy life for yourself. These are the sum total of my idea of happy life.

the baggier says, "Would you like paper or plastic?" I look that person right
in the eye and I tell him, "I want the one that?s better for the environment, I
want the one that will help prevent pollution, I want the one that cost less, I
want plastic." Plastic bags save money, they conserve energy, they are
practical and they are better for the environment.
