Environmental impact and resource production

  1. Environmental impact and resource production

Thebalance between the benefits of natural resources and the cost of theenvironmental destruction is always a challenge to environmentalists.The most optimal way is to reduce the environmental impact ofresource production. One way to do this is barring overproduction ina given location to avoid excessive effects. In addition, it is vitalto adopt operational methods of production that have the lowest levelof destruction or minimal impact. The same strategy would be helpfulif employed during the use of the natural resources so as to causethe minimal destruction possible.

Everycountry is demanding the use natural resources despite the imminentdanger to the environment that results from the extraction andproduction of such products. Therefore, the possibility of stoppingproduction is high because of the lack of sufficient alternatives. Inaddition, it is not a feasible to disregard the use and value addedby the resources such as the sources of energy. To do without somematerials, I would encourage communities to use natural alternativesto natural resources, and to embrace recycling. An example of thesealternatives would be the use of green energy of solar and wind powerinstead of fossil fuel.

  1. The Coral reef

Coralreefs are currently in a fragile state due to destruction by naturaland artificial processes that disrupt their ecosystem. One of thereasons of the decline of the coral reefs is human activities thatnegatively impact on them by introducing stressors to the reefs.Overfishing and human pollution are top of the activities that leadto the destruction of coral reef life. Another cause is developmentof structures in the coastal regions, which tampers with the coralreefs and destroys their existence. Some developers insensitivelycovering coral reefs with sand and mass to create a dry space forputting up physical structures.

Thesedestructions lead to the end of life at the coral reef ecosystems andcomplete end to their existence. This predicament is because manypeople do not have a greater appreciation for coral reefs. Accordingto Dr.Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, the situation is direbecause many people do not understand the role of marine ecosystemsand the value of aquatic life to human beings. If people wereconscious of the importance of marine life, they would play a betterrole to protect aquatic ecosystems.

  1. Earth science processes

Earthscience processes are inevitable and lead to various impacts on humanlife. Some of these processes have direct or indirect effects onhuman life. One of the impacts of these processes is in human life isthe effect on public health. Some Earth science processes such asflooding affect the environment negatively and cause diseases andhealth conditions that affects our body function. The impact of Earthscience processes like erosion and heat exchange affects theagricultural output negatively. The impact of poor agriculturaloutput is hunger and high cost of living due to increased prices offood.

Atthe same time, some earth science processes limits the ability ofhuman beings to inhabit and live. For instance, flooding and volcaniceruptions lead to displacement of people and abandonment of homes ontemporary or permanent basis. These processes also limit the humanability to explore natural resources by inhabiting activities likefarming, mining and fishing. Therefore, human beings should live witha keen concern over Earth science processes by being conscious oftheir impacts. This will enable people to live safely amid theinevitable eventuality of earth science processes.
