Solution Increase price on carbon emissions nationwide. Investment in public transportation and other low carbon infrastructure. Strict energy efficiency standards for trucks,cars, buildings and consumer products. governments should act to limit global warming to less than 2ºC by taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.The sooner we act to reduce greenhouse gases, the less serious the impacts will be.
Unit 3 Resource + Industry - Waste Production The highest total of livestock related greenhouse gas emissions comes from the growing world which is responsible for 75% of the global emissions. The livestock industry affects the physical environment and consumes much energy and water. Feed crop production emissions. Emissions from animal digestion/ manure. Transportation emissions. Water pollution/ Water contamination can occurs from direct deposit of fecal material into waterways, pesticide and fertilizer application to feed crops and livestock processing. Groundwater contamination can be caused by leaching,following manure or fertilizer application to land, and leaking into manure storages.
Solution more sustainable agriculture practices. Reduction in meat consumption, to produce less greenhouse gas emission. Plant based animal diets. Renewable energy sources to power farm machines etc.
Unit 4 Livable communities - Energy & Water -Wastewater
Storm water. Pollution/climate change. Costs: the price of water has doubled in the past five years and will continue to rise. The more water efficient you are now, the more $ savings you will make over time
