They have been called archaea. Research on these animals is limited since they do not grow and culture well in a laboratory. These animals live in extremely hot temperatures of 160 degrees Fahrenheit and higher, while microbes have been found living in boiling water. This revelation surely must change all of the "rules" we have for health standards. These newly discovered facts must dramatically change the way we think of life on earth.
Unfortunately, efforts to clean up are futile because water run-off continues to re-contaminates the land and ocean. Also, many areas are still too radioactive to work in. Currently, reactor four is still in tact; however, if Japan is struck with another magnitude six plus earthquake, the reactor will be destroyed and will cause a world cr... ... middle of paper ... ... 2013.

In other words, fracking is a waste of our precious fresh water. Nine million gallons of freshwater is wasted and can never be useful again after being used in the Fracking process. The small amount of water that returns to the surface, or flow back, is laced with hundreds of deadly toxins. This flow back water is usually left in man mad ponds, free to evaporate into the atmosphere and fall as rain. When using biodegrading chemicals one should be especially careful, but many areas in this process are not controlled.
But there are also downsides to using GMOs in crop production. How can we be certain that these modifications won't harm consumers? Though most scientists working with GMOs do it for the good of human kind, some of the products of their experiments are rather wacky. For example, researchers in Scotland have already produced potatoes that glow when they need watering. This has been accomplished through the use of bioluminescence, a trait that can be found in many marine animals.
Microbes are single-cell organisms that cannot by the naked eyes and are found everywhere in the ecosystem. Microbe is important to human being as they aid in the digestion of food in the body, decaying the garbage and without them, there would be a lot less of oxygen to breathe. Around 3.5 billion years ago, microbes have already been living on this earth where there is just ocean. Studies of microbes help us understand the past and the future of human and the planet. Microbes can be divided into six main types; Archaea, Bacteria, Fungi, Protista, Viruses, and Microbial Mergers.
Genetic engineering of this type has its advantages and criticisms. One of the advantages of GMOs is pest resistance. Crop losses from insect pests can be overwhelmi... ... middle of paper ... ...e on food safety and risk, but not a system that requires people to sort out their feelings about genetic engineering. Thus, I think that “messing” with nature to implant genes into crops is acceptable because we benefit from it. As mentioned and discussed above, scientists do genetic engineering, thus humans are responsible for nature and doing research on it.
Genetic engineering is a process in which scientists transfer genes from one species to another totally unrelated species. Usually this is done in order to get one organism to produce proteins, which it would not naturally produce. The genes taken from one species, which code for a particular protein, are put into cells of another species, using a vector. This can result in the cells producing the desired protein. It is used for producing proteins which can be used by humans, such as insulin for diabetics and is also used to make organisms better at surviving, for example genetically modifying a plant so that it can survive in acidic soil.
Many scientists classify these organisms to help establish organisation in order to study them more proficiently. It also allows relationships between organisms to be identified and investigated. Without these systems the evolution of the organisms and its history cannot be tracked. The first classification system identified was created by Aristotle, a Greek philosopher born in 384BC. This classification system divided organisms into two basic groupings; plants and animals (Utahscience.
How much serious those problems are is recognized not only by seeing the magnitude of material or biological crises, such as environmental disruption. What is likewise serious is what one may call "the epistemic-moral inability", a crisis in our ability "to cope with uncertainty" in both science and morality. The purpose of this paper is to trace the origin of this crisis and problematize it as a defect of the form of human self-understanding in contemporary scientific-technological culture, with the help of Hannah Arendt's reflection on human activities. In every civilization, we may find some peculiar "cosmology" that stands for the human self-understanding that is embodied in the human's relationships with the world and the self-image of who we are and what we do. The distinction between man and nature, for example, should be considered as "cultural construction" that depends on that understanding, not as objectively specifiable by means of scientific treatment.
These apes need these forests for food and for protection from predators. Without trees and other plants, they cannot eat, raise their young, or protect themselves. Another reason why animals are losing their habitats is from pollution. Not only pollution destroys an animal’s environment but, it can lead to other health factors that can harm not only animals, but also humans as well. After the nuclear explosion at the Chernobyl factory in Ukraine, both plants and animals were exposed to very high levels of radiation that this ecosystem will probably never recover to its former self.
