Analysis: The knowledge that has been presented in this article is crucial for the health of the natural world. We see another devastating effect that results from climate change, and one that people would never even think of to be so impactful. It's important to know how actions like damming, plowing, and urbanization can hinder "renewal" of rivers because it will hopefully urge people to stop making these decisions. To start, people should not be damming rivers because they run a specific way, and when that way is altered, the whole river is thrown off. Also, farmers should have to find less invasive ways to plow – ones that don't clog up rivers. Lastly, people should just not develop subdivisions and live in homes and buildings that are already built.
