The extinction of animal species increases the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, hence worsening the greenhouse effect. As species become extinct, out options for future discovery and advancement are also lost. Animal research has played an important part in mainly every medical breakthrough over the last decade. Benefits of Animals Plants and animals have many agricultural, commercial, medicinal and ecological benefits to human beings. Threatened and endangered species should be protected for future generations to be able to experience their existence and necessity.
83.2% of their money goes towards conservation projects. The Sierra Club: The Sierra Club is reaching out to people to help promote clean air, water conservation, removal of toxic waste, and other necessary processes for this planet, and all its animals. Conclusion The list of endangered animals, provided by many conservation organizations, continues to grow every day. In our world that is obsessed with expansion and profit, other species no longer have a place to live in a natural habitat and go extinct unnaturally very frequently. We face the loss of biodiversity, the most profitable business if we let these animals continue to die out as well as the breakdown of many fragile webs and ecosystems.
The problems that this high production of meat brings to the environment are an increase in air pollution, overgrazing, deforestation and the diminishing of water resources. Each one of these factors is incrementally adding up into a less environmentally friendly tomorrow. At the rate that we are going, not much progress is being made. An interesting fact is that livestock have added up to 9% of all human related carbon dioxide emissions (“Cutting Meat Consumption”, pg.1). This is due to the fact that cow’s flatulate gasses that is harmful to the ozone layer.
If the 6.6 billion people on the earth change a few daily habits, we may be able to slow the effects of global warming and ensure that the life of our fossil fuels is extended. As the temperature of the atmosphere rises gradually, it wreaks havoc on the glaciers, rainforests and numerous other naturally occurring habitats. The rainforests are drastically reduced in number annually due to climate shifts and people destroying them for lumber or industrial development. This destruction causes many species to become endangered due to the fact that their home has been destroyed. This destruction does not only affect the animals that live in the forests though.
Humans, plants, and animals contribute to the cycle of life on earth. The extinction of plants and animals caused by global warming can lead to worldwide panic. The future flooding of the Earth is very possible if warming continues at this rate. Global Warming can be catastrophic if nothing is done. Global warming comes with a plethora of negative outcomes and we need to stop it.
The over population is affecting many ecosystems. As the population grows, we need more space because we are occupying at home to many animal species. Peter Singer mentions in his book “Practical Ethics” “…the discovery that human activities are changing the climate of our planet has brought with it knowledge of new ways in which we can harm one another” (216). Industries have more impact on climate change. Industries as oil industries release many issues in the atmosphere affecting the ozone layer.
Drilling for oil at the rainforest will cause so many problems like environmental effects and health effects on Indigenous Communities. Further, hunting animals is another major problem. The hunters hunt animals for money or food. They also are destroying the biographical habitat of the animals. In addition, the deforestation of the rainforest will destroy the animals’ homes and potentially kill hundreds of them.
All extinct species go through a process that leads them to extinction. Endangered species are on the brink of extinction caused by natural causes and humanity. The numbers of these species have increased yearly due to different reasons, and it is because of these reasons they become endangered. Endangered species are plants or animals expected to die off within a few years. “Facts about Endangered Animals” is an article that teaches its readers general facts about many animals facing extinction.
National Wildlife Federation is playing a leadership role in identifying and promoting innovative approaches to safeguard endangered species and other wildflife in the face of a changing climate. To sum up the foregoing, there is big list of animals which are already extinct, and mayabe more which are endangered. Some say that it is cause of human activity, some say that it is natural selection. The fact is that extinction is a natural process, because humans have not been around forever to cause extinction. Nowadays People are dominating on earth and setting up living rules for others, like other dominating animals years ago, and it is not excluded that there will be time when Human will become extintc, by natural selection, by nature will.
The misbalance of the carbon cycle has created climate disasters, that affect us directly. The increase in temperature brings a lot of problems to society. Bacteria and other pathogens reproduce faster in hotter climates making it easier to spread diseases and plagues. As of this moment 800 million people are starving, if heat keeps rising the farms are not going to be able to produce more food so the number of starving people will go up. Economists predict that heat waves could bring a positive aspect to farming, the excessive heat means more evaporation which means more rain.
