In this project we looked at the impact of led traces left in water and it’s impact on youth.
Reading about lead poisoning from the article was really shocking to me because I had never heard of this issue until now. It’s really sad to know that 1-5 children under 6 years old are affected by lead poisoning, and I wish landlords and other officials of the Philadelphia area would care more about the health of youth.
This info-graphic assignment taught me that cities I spend time in are affected by the sad truth of lead poisoning. Lead poisoning is serious and we should all think to ask our parents if we are affected or if we have family that's affected so we can give them the support they need.
Everything that we do in life has a cause and has an affect. In maintaining sustainability in our ecosystem for the future we have to start being mindful of our actions because so. Instead of using your car everyday try walking, and instead of using regular light bulbs, use solar powered ones. These small changes can go a long way but we have to take the initiative and make it happen. I say the earth spheres affect each other in just the way they interact. For example water in the lake (hydrosphere) gets into the cliff walls behind the dam, becoming groundwater (geosphere), or evaporating into the air (atmosphere). So there are many ways they interact and affect each other.
The Earth systems affect each other by producing events that can cause changes to occur in one or more of the spheres, and/or an event can be the effect of changes in one or more of Earth's four spheres. An understanding in environmental science can aid in natural disasters by gaining knowledge about how each one occurs and what safety measures need to be taken in order for fewer deaths to occur. In order to create a sustainable future, we need to produce methods that allow us to reduce our resource consumption so that we don't damage our environment.
The earth systems affect each other because they all have subsystems interact with each other to be apart of the climate, they cause some geological processes and to be a part of life all over the Earth. They also protect each other and pass down energy to each process. An understanding of environmental science can help aid in handling natural disasters because it gives us a better insight into what can be hurtful and can cause these natural diseases we can also know what helps these disasters. In the future, we can try to be more eco-friendly with our everyday products and just making sure we understand the effect of the things we continue to do. We can also promote a healthy environment more and stop things like pollution
This quarter my group members and I all came together to see how we can make a sustainable restaurant. Sustain means to keep or preserve. For our project we decided to do a restaurant because they are very popular. With that being said we created a sustainable restaurant which will allow humans to use more natural products and save the products that we will need in the future. We decided to make all of our products recyclable and natural. Our refrigerator and oven are both energy star products which are great for the environment. We decided to only give people water if they ask for it. This project went very well, and it gave me the opportunity to actually see how important it is to sustain our resources.
Sustainability is being able to maintain a stable life. As a group, we choose to look at the effects restaurants have on our environment. This industry affects all of us because we all go to restaurants and how they affect the environment and their surrounding community is important because their production of goods can hurt the environment. Some natural resource that can be used in our sustainability is to use natural ingredients to make their cuisine. Also, depending on where they put their restaurant they will need land to build, electricity, and water so they can cook, clean, and for plumbing. Some of the ways in which ecological systems depend on energy inputs because individual organisms rely on a continuous input of energy in order to survive, grow, and reproduce. Scientists keep track of inputs, outputs, and changes to complex systems by keeping data of every system.Natural systems change over time and space due to the negative contributions humans are doing to our earth.
