Mother Nature always comes with surprises, and although weather is forecasted, one can never prevent disasters from happening. Floods in the Midwest for example, have delayed the planting of many crops and destroyed them as well. The rise in environmental problems such as agricultural flooding has a catastrophic impact of great concern to farmers so tile drainage has been suggested to more or less improve the problem. Flooding in the Midwest is expected to increase in the upcoming future, therefore farmers should try to find the solution before it’s too late and they start losing more agriculture. Installing tile drainage systems on farming land isn’t a bad idea at all considering that the investment pays off in the end because it prepares the land for earlier planting and harvesting, and not only that, but companies use modern equipment in order to be accurate on the installation of this great system which helps improve the farmlands and helps get rid of most of the destruction of crops.
The lack of rain was another big issue during this time, some farmers would argue that it was the root cause for everything. No rain meant farmers could not make a profit, or obtain food and everything just rooted and expanded onto this problem. It does show that nature played a role into the dustbowl, but it was no the main reason for it. The over farming for crops, the bad management of those crops made it for what it was, for a long time. It was as if a hole was dug, and it was becoming bigger by every year with no one knowing how to fix the hole.

Water was such an important resource that the earliest laws made were not over land rights but rather of water rights. The ancient legal codes reflect the need for water regulation to settle disputes regarding its supply and distribution. Technological development was also closely related with water as new water transporting technique and machinery were developed to accommodate for water needs. The digging of ditches and canal benefitted the economy by allowing the irrigation of massive crop fields which led to a surplus of resources.
The drought of the 1870s had ended, and the wet years brought good West Side harvests. It no longer felt urgent to spend money to avert crop failures. Besides, some farmers believed the district could not sell its bonds without state backing. The second Westside authorization act had not included such a provision after Bay Area interests had objected. As later experience would prove, the lack of state backing often placed a serious handicap on marketing irrigation securities.
The lack of agricultural infrastructure and poor farming techniques have led to critically low crop yields. Poor education for female caregivers and societal inequalities over caregiver roles has led to especially malnourished youth who play into a disturbing viscous cycle. Compounding these issues, the healthcare and sanitation systems of Ethiopia have thus far been unable to cope with the explosion of malnourishment cases. Agriculture is the main contributor to the Ethiopian economy, yet it struggles due to an underdeveloped agricultural infrastructure.

Successful and Inappropriate Diffusion In Thermador The Thermadorian society had been isolated from the world for hundreds of years. The successful diffusion of farming technology failed for a number of reasons. Based on our information, there were several components missing. Components such as no research or plans to sustain a long-term solution to the problem. The United Nations presented modern farming technology not taking into consideration the educational level of the society in a modern world.
2) Farmer’s perception 1 Farmers did their old practices and hesitated to adopt the innovation because they worried the losses of yield on things that they are less compatible with. 3) Capital/ poverty 1 More capital was also needed for certified seeds and new rice varieties with expensive technologies tools. 4) Age 2 Young farmers prefer to use technology rather than conservative old. 5) Ethnicity 2 Most of the minority people are poor and do earning from working as off-farm hired labours and they have inadequate time to learn innovations. 6) Gender 3 Woman are less exposed to technologies leading to disagreements with their spouse in applying new technologies.
There is: “no evidence of any direct relationship between the mutation of sickness and the so-called progress of disease” (Davey et. al., 1995 p237). In fact, all of these illnesses have no effective medical cure. An ageing population has to suffer the degenerative diseases that are inherent of modern societies with no hope for a cure, only insinuations of their ‘wasting’ of scarce resources for the largely ineffective alleviation of their discomfort. It would appear that the successes of the medical establishment have been greatly over stated.
The people of the third world are suffering because they are unable to gain access to food, or cannot afford to purchase it. While emergency food aid should be provided in response to disasters such as the Ethiopian famine or the floods of Bangladesh, it must not be viewed as a long term solution. Despite enabling some lives to be saved, it fails to remove the underlying causes of hunger. The cycles of starvation continue through drought and flood, war and problems with food distribution. The solution to hunger is far more complex than the brief food aid packages delivered.

Although fracking is not very well accepted, many believe that fracking is the only way to extract natural gas and oil efficiently. While others believe that it is harmful to the drinking supply of water and to the environment as all other extractions of natural resources are. Today states, the House of Representatives, and the Senate are all working to help minimize the effects that hydraulic fracturing has within communities and the environment by enforcing stronger laws and regulations within fracturing wells and fracturing companies.
