Transcript of "Sustainability"

  1. 1. Steps to be Sustainable<br />Steven Shearing<br />Tommy Stupp<br />
  2. 2. Deforestation<br />Thousands of square mile have been cut down each year.<br />Species driven out of home<br /> Drastic change in temperature <br /> Soil is dried up<br />Destruction of the Ecosystem<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Steps to Be Sustainable: Deforestation <br />Only true solution: careful management of clear cutting trees and plant new ones.<br />Steps to Reduce:<br /><ul><li>Plant more trees, indigenous to your area
  5. 5. Stop buying wood from lumber companies</li></li></ul><li>Endangered Species<br />20,000 species have become endangered or gone extinct in the past 3 years.<br />Destruction of Habitat<br />Deforestation<br />Poachers<br />Pollution<br />Introduction of new species<br />Ecosystem is dying<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Steps to Be Sustainable: Endangered Species <br />Plant native trees and plants in your area.<br />Do not buy animal furs or animal parts.<br />-EX: Black Rhino’s horn<br />Stop buying so much wood<br />
  8. 8. Acid Rain <br />Acid Rain: rain that contains more than normal amounts of nitric and sulfuric acid.<br />Hurts Animals<br />Destroys Trees <br />Accelerates Decay<br />Destroys Ecosystem<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Steps To Be Sustainable: Acid Rain<br /> Cleaning out Smokestacks and pipes<br /> Using coal with less sulfur<br /> Switching from fossil fuels to other energy<br />
  11. 11. Pollution<br />Pollution: is the introduction of contaminants into an environment that causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the ecosystem<br />Smog and Acid Rain created<br />Holes in Ozone<br />Harmful to human health<br />Dangerous to animals<br />Harmful to ecosystem<br />
  12. 12.
  13. 13. Steps to be Sustainable: Pollution<br />Don’t Smoke<br />Adequate Ventilation <br />Careful use of chemicals<br />Reduce emissions from mining, smelting, generating, oil operations, etc. <br /> Reduce use of natural gas and wood burning<br />…<br />Reduce usage <br />
  14. 14. Overfishing <br />Over 70% of world’s fisheries are over-exploited<br />Destruction and harmful changing of ecosystems<br />
  15. 15.
  16. 16. Steps to Be Sustainable: Overfishing<br />Be informed-<br />Research articles, <br />Find information on local problems<br />Know what you eat-<br />Eat the kinds of fish with least impact<br />Spread the word<br />
  17. 17. Trash Waste<br />Trash Waste: Overuse of Materials<br /> Littering<br />Littering: Don’t Care, Don’t Know, Lazy<br />409,000 million tons thrown out only out of U.S. each year<br />Consequences: Trash island two times Texas in Pacific. <br /> Harmful to the Environment<br /> Kills animals and pollutes and clutters land<br />
  18. 18.
  19. 19. Steps to Be Sustainable: Trash Waste<br />STOP LITTERING!<br />Use cloth napkins<br />Use sealable containers instead of plastic<br />Reuse cardboard boxes<br />Reuse materials<br />Recycle <br />
  20. 20. Overall<br /> All problems out there that humans have created are destroying not the earth, but the ecosystems on the earth. The ecosystems in which humans and other animals and plants live in. We are destroying not only all those animals and plants, we are destroying ourselves. It is not the earth that needs saving, but the human race. The human race needs to become more sustainable, the human race needs to fix the problems that it has created.<br />
  21. 21. So how can you be Sustainable?<br />Plant more trees, indigenous to your area. <br />Stop buying wood from lumber companies<br />Plant native trees and plants in your area.<br />Do not buy animal furs or animal parts.<br />Stop buying so much wood.<br />Cleaning out Smokestacks and pipes<br />Using coal with less sulfur<br />Switching from fossil fuels to other energy<br />Don’t Smoke<br />Adequate Ventilation <br />Careful use of chemicals<br />Reduce emissions from mining, smelting, generating, oil operations.<br />Reduce use of natural gas and wood burning<br />Be informed on overfishing<br />Eat the kinds of fish with least impact<br />Spread the word on overfishing<br />Stop Littering<br />Reuse materials<br />Recycle<br />
