Biodiversity is the variety of life. There are thought to be 8.7 million species on planet Earth. And, as we saw in this video, biodiversity is of utmost importance to humans. The loss of one key species can have a detrimental impact on many levels; from other species of animals to plants to the physical environment, as shown by wolves. Human activities are reducing biodiversity. Our future depends upon maintaining a good level of biodiversity, and so we need to start taking measures to try and stop the reduction. In this video we are going to look at how humans are negatively impacting biodiversity. As the world population has grown from 1.5 billion in 1900 to nearly 7.5 billion people today, unsurprisingly the land use has changed. Habitats have been destroyed in favour of agriculture, forestry, fishing, urbanisation and manufacturing. Unsurprisingly, habitat loss has greatly reduced the species richness. Habitat fragmentation has also meant that populations have been split into smaller subunits, which then when faced with challenging circumstances have not been able to adapt and survive. After habitat loss, overharvesting has had a huge effect on biodiversity. Humans historically exploit plant and animal species for short-term profit. If a resource is profitable, we develop more efficient methods of harvesting it, inevitably depleting the resource. As is currently happening with fishing and logging. The exploited species then needs protection. The difficulty is that the demand then outstrips the supply, and so the resource value rises. This increases the incentive to extract the resource and leads to the final collapse of the population. As happened with whales, elephants, spotted cats, cod, tuna and many more species. Human activities are polluting the air and water. Toxic discharge into the water from industrial processes unsurprisingly has a negative effect on the local aquatic species by killing, weakening or affecting their ability to reproduce. Phosphorous and nitrogen in fertilisers run-off agricultural fields and pass into rivers. These surplus nutrients cause algae to bloom, which then starves other aquatic species of oxygen and light, causing them to die. Acid rain is one consequence of humans polluting the air. This causes lakes and water bodies to become more acidic, killing off fish, molluscs, amphibians and many other species. Huge impact humans have had on planet Earth is the introduction of alien species to habitats. In fact, it is estimated that on any given day there are 3000 species in transit aboard ocean-going vessels! Alien species can cause problems in a number of ways… pause the video and have a look. Throughout the earth’s history there have been periods of rapid climate change, that have led to mass extinction events. We are currently in a period of fluctuating climate, but nearly all scientists agree that human activities, like burning fossil fuels, are speeding up global warming. We don’t know how much climate change is going to affect biodiversity in future, but it’s predicted to be huge. Loss of sea ice and ocean acidification are already causing huge reductions in biodiversity. Climate change alters temperature and weather patterns, with changing patterns of rainfall and drought expected to have significant impacts on biodiversity. So there we have a selection of human-related impacts on biodiversity. There are much more, which a quick search on the internet will bring up.

http://www.patrickschwerdtfeger.com/sbi/ This video discusses how population growth adds directly to economic activity and GDP but does so at the expense of natural resources and environmental sustainability. It also discusses how population growth combines with standard of living to determine the total impact on domestic GDP. For example, poor countries with minimal infrastructure may have exploding populations but the standard of living is dropping at the same time, leaving their GDP unchanged in some cases.

Air Pollution. Due to cutting of trees, burning of wood, burning of fossil fuels, smoke released from factories and industries, smoke released from vehicles our air is getting polluted. Due to air pollution, human beings suffer from a number of diseases like Asthma, Bronchitis, Cancer. Air pollution also affects the growth of plants. Air pollution causes damage to our beautiful historical monuments. To reduce pollution, we should take some preventive measures: Plant more trees. Avoid bursting firecrackers. Make more use of public transport. Service your vehicles regularly. Factories and power plants should be set up far from residential areas to reduce air pollution.

How to lower cholesterol fast with 3 incredible ingredients | how to lower cholesterol naturally A poor diet, sedentary lifestyle and stress can all negatively impact the health of your arteries. Learn how to lower your cholesterol and triglyceride level with these 3 incredible ingredients. A poor diet negatively impacts the health of our arteries. The combination of these three ingredients, however, can help clean them to optimize blood circulation. Cleaning your arteries involves lowering your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. These types of lipids that tend to accumulate too much as we get older and put our health at serious risk. The wrong diet and unhealthy lifestyle habits like being sedentary or having high stress levels eventually trigger the development of hypercholesterolemia. However, the tricky thing about cholesterol and triglycerides is that they don’t show any concrete symptoms. You can only find out if you’re above the recommended 200 mg/dL of cholesterol or the 150 mg/dL for triglycerides with a blood test. You doctor will probably tell you whether you should take medicine for it or not. Still, the first step you should take is changing – or at least improving – your diet. In order to lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, we recommend incorporating this simple remedy into your diet. Next, we’ll tell you about its ingredients. For more watch video....

Go to GoingGreenwithMichele.com Environmentalism is the act of helping to preserve, restore, or improve one’s natural environment by decreasing pollution, conserve natural resources, do away with things that affect the world negatively. Our is how to save the earth. Some ways are addressing problems such as global warming, the depletion of the ozone layer, deforestation, climate change, the greenhouse effect ad many more issues. The Industrial Revolution was an amazing time in history for the United States and probably the entire world as well, but it came with a cost that most likely wont effect us directly but will definitely affect our grand kids and their kids. That cost can be called climate change, global warming or just the eventual demise of the planet Earth. The biggest advancement that came out of the Industrial Revolution is the steam powered engine. That paved an even greater economic outlook for mankind. There was more travel, more trade, more jobs, more goods were produce but and at the same time we began burning too many fossil fuels and tore down too many trees. The most used and least expensive way to generate the power for the steam engines was coal. Coal is essentially carbon and carbon is a natural greenhouse gas but ever since the Industrial Revolution there has been way too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We “humans” are now considered a non natural influence to the control of climate and deforestation is another phenomenon caused by humans and that is the burning of forests so there can be more land and building material to use. As an environmentalist that thinks realistically, I want to inform you that humans are not the only cause of climate change or global warming. The climate can be influenced by natural activity like: volcanic eruptions, changing solar activity, orbital variations, climate oscillations, and natural intake and emission of carbon(CO2) by animal and plant respiration, volcanic activity, and ocean-atmosphere exchange.

According to a report by the Natural Resources Defense Council, Americans are tossing up to 40 percent of the food supply each year, along with all the resources used to produce food that never gets eaten. Food waste occurs at home, on the farm, and in supermarkets. In this TED Talk, NRDC's executive director Peter Lehner explores the low-tech, tried-and-true solutions proven to reduce food waste and save money for consumers and businesses alike. It's essential that we start putting more of these solutions into action. Find out what we can do to get the most out of our food system at: http://www.nrdc.org/food http://www.nrdc.org/food/wasted-food.asp http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/dgunders/ Peter Lehner is the Executive Director of NRDC and NRDC Action Fund. NRDC, one the nation's leading environmental advocacy organizations with over 1.3 million members and activists and 430 staff in seven offices, works to protect people's health and families, communities, jobs, and wild spaces by accelerating clean and efficient energy, transportation and protecting our oceans, waters and homes from pollution. He is responsible for guiding NRDC's policy positions, advocacy strategies, communications plans, development and administration, and managing NRDC's seven offices and for leading the Action Fund's political activities. Since Peter's return to NRDC in 2006, NRDC has opened new offices in Beijing and Chicago, started the Center for Market Innovation, and expanded both its policy and communications capacity. Previously, Peter served as chief of the Environmental Protection Bureau of the New York State Attorney General's office for eight years. He supervised all environmental litigation by the state, prosecuting a wide variety of polluters and developing innovative multi-state strategies targeting global warming, acid rain, and smog causing emissions. Peter previously served at NRDC as a senior attorney in charge of the water program. Before that, he created and led the environmental prosecution unit for New York City. Peter holds an AB in philosophy and mathematics from Harvard College and is a graduate of Columbia University Law School, where he continues to teach environmental law. He also has extensive experience in sustainable farming and green business.

The MDG 7 acknowledges that development can be sustained only by environment conservation and recognizes the right of future generations to inherit an environment as preserved as the one that we are enjoying. Although the rate of depletion of natural resources is decreasing, humanity is unable to protect plant and animal species at the risk of extinction.

The depletion of the Earth's resources is higher than the rate of regenerating resources. This means that we have not chosen a sustainable path of economic development. The MDG 7 acknowledges that development can be sustained only by environment conservation and recognizes the right of future generations to inherit an environment as preserved as the one that we are enjoying. Although the rate of depletion of natural resources is decreasing, humanity is unable to protect plant and animal species at the risk of extinction Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/CKdf/

005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Woodlands and tree populations are dwindling in the border area between the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Consequently, the degradation of natural ecosystems is increasing while opportunities to earn income from the use of natural resources are decreasing. Worsening poverty among large swaths of the population and the lack of alternative sources of income are putting ever greater pressure on natural resources. Deforestation, erosion and the loss of fertile soils pose an increasing threat to the livelihoods and future prospects for poor population groups living in the transboundary watershed for the Libón River. The project supports the transboundary programme Frontera Verde as it implements measures to restore ecosystems in the rural area of the watershed for Rio Libón.

The Amazon encompasses nine countries in Latin America. More than half of the Amazon rainforest is in Brazil. Over the past two decades Brazil has been praised for reducing the rate of deforestation. down by 80%. This has global significance both for species conservation and climate regulation. However, still more needs to be done to continue to reduce deforestation and conserve Brazil’s unique natural resources. SEI is working with policymakers and other stakeholders across all levels from local to national to identify challenges, minimise environmental impact and maximise opportunity. Conservation and sustainable use of the Amazon is a foundation for Brazil’s future development trajectory. Conservation efforts should not be viewed as a barrier. If the Amazon is managed well then it provides a real opportunity for a long-term development pathway that Brazil can sustain.

Veronica Santo left the suburbs and boroughs of New York City in 2005 to experience life on a farm. What she found was a culture that values strong communities, diversity, creativity, and respect for the Earth. Since then she has been focusing her efforts on promoting sustainable agriculture and decreasing her consumption of natural resources through the use of Permaculture design principles. One gift of this process has been a large decrease in her dependence on money. For example, she pays a monthly electric bill around $14, and she grows much of her own food. Switching to this lifestyle has helped make it possible for Veronica to work part-time at a job she enjoys, where she used to be stuck in a full-time job she didn't enjoy. She spends some of her free-time walking the dog, napping, taking photographs, and decorating. Anne Armistead, Scott Smith, and Stu Maxey--video; Stu Maxey--video editing; Ed Cohn--audio.

Siphandone, in southern Laos, also known as the 4000 Islands, is a huge area of the mighty Mekong River that flows out into many channels, creating numerous islets and rapids. It’s also an area with an abundance of fish. Lao people who live along the area are dependent on the river inherited from their ancestors as their main source of food and income. Nowadays due to the economic development of the area and over catching by fishermen, the number of fish has been decreasing year by year. The path to great Khone Papheang waterfall is a small dirt road. The Thakor villagers and officials have set up a sign designating the area as a fish conservation zone in an effort to manage the sustainable use of the fisheries. Thakor village is one of 20 targeted villages in the project; Management and Sustainable use of Fisheries and Aquatic Natural Resource in Siphandone Phase II, which is supported by World Wild Fund for Nature in Laos (WWF-Laos). We’ve already finished setting up seven zones and more are underway,” said Head of the Fisheries Division, Agriculture and Forestry Department of Champassak province, Mr Bounkeuth Khamphithak. The project is part of other projects aimed at contributing to the overall socio-economic development of Laos, in particular that of Agriculture and Forestry, through the management and sustainable use of fisheries and aquatic natural resources in the Mekong River.

Technology is evolving and so are we. But evolution has a massive drawback. While the internet speed gets faster, our growth gets slower. “The youth is the future”, it’s said. The youth that bothers more about their likes increasing and less about the natural resources decreasing, prove to be a threat for the very future that we’ve dreamt of. Our definition of an ideal future has always been the highest level of technology, self-driven cars, skyscrapers and a better lifestyle. But our only question is, are you ready to give up your happiness and your mental sanity for materialistic things? Instead of evolving the type of vehicle you drive, it’s time to evolve your thought process. Your thoughts are captured by bias and prejudice. It’s time to set them free, it’s time to evolve and this time, in the right sense. Introducing to you, the theme for Insight’18- EVOLVE.

An animation film about the issue of overpopulation. More of my work can be found on rixt.org. Overpopulation Way back in 1950 when my parents were born there were 2,5 billion people on this planet. By the time I arrived in 1985, this had doubled to 5 billion people. Today, there are roughly 7 billion, and by the time I'll retire it's expected to be around 10 billion people. That means that it took from the beginning of humanity, 200.000 years ago, untill 1950 to reach 2,5 billion people, but it will only take one hundred more years to add three times that amount. In other words, the population is growing exponentially. Let me put it differently. By the time you've reached the end of this video about 300 people have been added to the planet. In an hour from now there will be 8684 more people, and this time tomorrow we'll have 208.434 new pride & joy. 1.4 million per week, 76 million per year. And when there are more people, there are more mouths to be fed. In fact, there is more demand for all the stuff that we need to live: energy, water, food, and space. Imagine that the world's population has tripled since the 1950's. That means that we need three times as much oil, wood, coal, uranium, electricity, potable water, fish, meat, cereals, vegetables, and of course space. Space to live, but also to grow the food and produce the goods that we need. But wait a minute, the earth didn't increase by threefold now did it? Nope, it didn't. We still have the same amount of natural resources we had then, or actually, less, as we've kept consuming in the mean time. So this decreasing amount of natural resources has to be shared with an increasing amount of people. Oh, and did I mention that these people are consuming more individually as well? And what will we do when shortages appear? Take water for instance. If the beginning of a river flows through one country, and they use all the water they need, and leave too little water to flow into the following country, what would you do? Fight over it? And how about oil? If your country has a monopoly on oil, and shortages appear. Would you still export it to the rest of the world? And if you'd keep it to yourself, do you think that the other countries will be ok with that? When it comes down to the world's population, is it really the more the merrier?

Professor C.-Y. Cynthia Lin Lawell is an Associate Professor and the Robert Dyson Sesquicentennial Chair in Environmental, Energy and Resource Economics in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. Professor Lin Lawell’s fields of interest are environmental and natural resource economics, energy economics, industrial organization, applied econometrics, and applied microeconomics. Her current areas of research include groundwater, water management, the petroleum industry, renewable energy, natural resources, environmental regulation, air quality, transportation, agriculture, and development. She uses a variety of economic and econometric methods in her research, including dynamic structural econometric models, structural econometric models of dynamic games, reduced-form econometrics, spatial econometrics, dynamic programming, and optimal control theory. Professor Lin Lawell enjoys working on projects that are technically sound, innovative, challenging, and that are of interest to academics, business practitioners and policy-makers alike. She would like to make a positive impact on the world. Professor Lin Lawell has received numerous awards for her research, including the International Society for New Institutional Economics Award for the Best Ph.D. Dissertation; the Harvard University Stone Fellow Award for Best Paper Written by a Doctoral Student in Environmental and Resource Policy; the 2011 University of California at Davis Hellman Fellowship for promising young faculty who exhibit potential for great distinction in their research; and Honorable Mention in the 2015-2016 Bacon Public Lectureship and White Paper Competition. Her research has also been featured in such media outlets as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian, Platt’s blog, and Bloomberg View. Prior to joining the faculty at Cornell University, Professor Lin Lawell was previously an Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Agricultural and Resource Economics Department and the Environmental Science and Policy Department at the University of California at Davis. Professor Lin Lawell received her bachelor's degree, summa cum laude, in Environmental Science and Public Policy from Harvard College in 2000 and her Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University in 2006. Professor Lin Lawell is an expert on water economics and water management. She and her former and current Ph.D. students have conducted previous research on groundwater management, including previous research on the effects of irrigation technology, property rights, pumping by neighbors, energy prices, and climate change on groundwater extraction by agricultural water users. Their work on groundwater management has been published in top journals including the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, the American Journal of Agricultural Economics, and the Annual Review of Resource Economics. Professor Lin Lawell was the invited speaker on groundwater at the University of California at Davis Agribusiness Workshop in 2015. She was an invited panelist at the international conference on “Water Pricing for a Dry Future: Policy Ideas from Abroad and their Relevance to California” in 2016. She was awarded Honorable Mention for the Bacon Public Lectureship and White Paper Competition for her work on the economics of groundwater management, and gave her talk in Sacramento in 2016. In previous research, Professor Lin Lawell and her former Ph.D. student Lisa Pfeiffer examine the effect of programs that subsidize efficient irrigation technology on water extraction. Their results show that programs that subsidize efficient irrigation technology cause farmers to respond by switching to more water intensive crops, thereby increasing, not decreasing, water extraction. Their research therefore demonstrates the possible perverse consequences of incentive-based groundwater conservation programs. This work has been featured in media outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, Bloomberg View, the Chicago Policy Review, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Environmental Working Group’s AgMag BLOG, and the Farm Foundation’s AgChallenge2050. This work was also chosen as one of the “Editor’s Picks” featured on the front page of the Global Water Forum; and was listed among the “Top Stories” for the Brown and Caldwell Water News, an aggregator run by the largest engineering consulting firm solely focused on the U.S. environmental sector, in October 2013.

For Accountancy, Economics or Business Studies Classes you can reach me at: Friends Tuition Centre Pvt. Ltd. D-55, III Floor, East of Kailash, New Delhi 110065 http://ftcindia.in/ You can also mail me @ [email protected] Hi Everyone Welcome to my channel, Commerce Made Fun and as promised earlier, today, we will be talking about the shift of PPC. Now, this is a series - First we talked about What is PPC, Second we talked about what are the Properties of PPC and today we talk about how does PPC change. Because, nothing stays constant, we talked about how a PPC tells us the maximum amount of productivity that can be achieved by an economy but we added a clause there, we said that it shows the maximum amount of productivity that an economy can have with its given resources and technology. Now, we very well know - Whether it is resources or whether it is technology - They would not stay the same always. So when resources, or technology, or both change, the PPC would automatically shift. So, today's session is devoted to the Shift of PPC. As I just mentioned that Shift of PPC can be caused due to two reasons: 1. Change in Resources of production 2. Change in technology of production. Let's talk about both of them one by one. First is change in resources. Resources can be of various types - Human resources, Financial Resources, Material Resources. Whenever Resources increase, our productive capacity increases. That means we can produce more units of the commodities if our resources increase. Thus, under resources, the first side we just talked about - If there is growth of resources, then it will increase the productive capacity. Second side, if resources decrease, maybe due to natural calamities maybe some foreign investors pull back their investment, any reason could be there for decrease in resources. The decline in resources would lead to a decrease in the productive capacity. Thus, when there is increase or growth of resources, the productive capacity would increase and if there is a decrease in resources/decline in resources then there will be a decrease in productive capacity. Now, let's talk about technology. As we know, nowadays there are so many gadgets coming up, the technology is getting so advanced day by day. So when technology gets better, when there is advancement in technology, What happens? Our productive capacity increases. Thus, according to technology, advancement would lead to increase in productive capacity and on the other hand, the other way, when so many new technologies enter the market, what happens to the old ones? They become Obsolete. So when there is obsoletion of technology, it will lead to decrease in productive capacity. So, what have we understood till here? We have said that Shift of PPC can be due to 2 factors - Change in Resources & Change in technology - When there is increase in resources the productive capacity would increase and when there would be a decrease in resources then the productive capacity would decrease. When there would be advancement in technology then productive capacity would increase but when there is obsoletion in technology the productive capacity would decrease. In line with this - let's now understand how the PPC gets affected. Whenever there is an increase in the productive capacity, the PPC would shift to the right. Rightward indicated increase in production. Let's revisit the PPC, the shape of PPC was concave, why was it concave we talked about in the last class. Let's take Rice and Rifles on the Y-Axis and X-Axis respectively. Now, if we increase the production , the production of Rifles would become more than OB, means it will shift to the right, the production of Rice will become more than OA, means rightwards. So, any increase in productive capacity would be shown by a rightward shift and any decrease in productive capacity would be shown by a leftward shift. Now, let us say that the productive capacity for both Rice and Rifles has increased, so what will happen? Rice will shift from OA to OA' and Rifles will shift from OB to OB' and we will say that the PPC in it's entirety has shifted rightwards parallel to the old PPC. Now, here the production capacity for both the goods had increased, thus, the entire PPC shifted rightward from AB to A'B'. What will happen when the resources would decrease? When the resources would decrease then the production of Rice will come to A'' and the production of Rifles will shift to B''. The PPC will come inward and we will call it a leftward parallel shift of PPC. Thus, rightward parallel shift will occur when productive capacity of both the commodities is increasing and leftward parallel shift will occur when the productive capacity of both the commodities is decreasing. There is one more thing left to be talked about. For more - Please watch the video :-)

What On Earth Program 24 Segment Two The Challenge of Mineral Resources This segment is a positive look at the mineral resource situation in today's world. Students are introduced to the idea of renewable and nonrenewable resources and the increased use of raw materials by our technological society. After visiting mines and oil drilling sites to explore the limited nature of the earth's wealth, the possibility of recycling is suggested as one way of extending the world's mineral wealth. Students are taken to auto-shredders and aluminum recycling centers while alternatives for recycling resources are discussed. Students then observe a pilot plant investigating the feasibility of recycling the refuse from entire cities by separating the usable fractions for resale as raw materials. The tone of this segment is positive, with an emphasis on ways to avoid the impending crisis of decreasing resources.
