Casa UE2 Show2

  1. 1. Environmental Problems In Michigan<br />By: Sadie Almazan And Carly Forehand (also this slide show includes biomes, location, and human characteristics). <br />
  2. 2. Human Characteristics of Michigan<br />
  3. 3. One of Michigan&apos;s characteristics comes from one of the nicknames (the wolverine state), wolf hunting. They also have farming. North Carolina (where we live) does not have wolf hunting, but it does have farming. <br />
  4. 4. The Biomes of Michigan<br />
  5. 5. Like we said this slide has the biomes of Michigan, but this also has the biomes of two states near it, Indiana and Ohio.<br /> Michigan Indiana Ohio<br /> Temperate Taiga Taiga<br /> Grasslands Grasslands <br />
  6. 6. Environmental Problems of Michigan<br />
  7. 7. Oil Spills<br /> In Michigan may people are taking oil boats and they are spilling it into Lake Michigan and the people who are responsible for the spill don’t even bother to try to clean it up!!! It is killing many animals and plants. We should try to clean it up or even not go by boat, maybe even by truck or plane! <br />
  8. 8. How It Effects The Animals<br />All of the animals who live in Lake Michigan are dying. Even deer who are drinking this water are dying! These animals have not done anything to deserve this horrible thing. They deserve a healthy environment, not one with oil every where they look around the lake. Oil spills are destroying their homes and killing their families. <br />
  9. 9. How It Effects The Plants<br /> All of the plants that relies on Lake Michigan for water are dying because of all of the oil that is spilling in the water and it is like poison to the plants. Also all of the plants in the water are also dying, but even faster then the ones on land because it is closer and reaches them faster. <br />
  10. 10. How It Effects Us<br /> If we keep on spilling oil in the lake it will sooner or later poison the air and it will be very unhealthy if we breath it in and we will get very sick or even die! Again it also kills plants and we will not be able to farm and or harvest. <br />
  11. 11. How We Can Help<br /> We can help by driving by truck or even transport all that oil by plane, or if we spill we should try to clean it up before it spreads throughout the entire state!<br />
  12. 12. Thank-you <br />Thanks so much for listening to us. We hope that people will chose to not cause oil spills and if that happens at least try to clean it up as soon as possible!<br />
