Many of the individuals who live within these communities are elderly, immigrants, farmers and migrants. They work and live off their land and lack the needed funds to purchase health insurance, because it is not affordable and they do not have transportation or a way of getting on bus routes, because they live so far out. The nearest local hospital is about 50 miles away and if they get seriously injured they must wait for an ambulance or life flight to arrive with an additional ride of about an hour before they receive adequate care in case of an emergency.
In the article, “Decade of drought”by Anne Capeci and “Drought reports” they both discuss the effects of droughts and use photo graphs to show evidence that droughts are everywhere to begin “decade of droughts” explains how people have no water.for example in Africa they had no fresh water. Without water livestocks will die and wild animals will die from hunger and dehydration additionally the article continues to explain about drought through pictures for example they use pictures to show about what was affected by the drought Capeci reports destructive wildfire are common during droughts in southwest some say that Johnson's article is better but most people would agree that her information to tell about the drought.
We Californians are to blame for California's Water Shortage.It's as simple as that we really don't think about the consequences that will come with washing our cars (thinking were saving something such as money),Taking long showers and baths,filling pools,and watering our plants more often than is necessary.Also In the article In paragraph 3 states “Brown ordered The State Water Resources Control Board To put Forced Restriction In Place To Reduce Water Use by 25 percent”Yet even the restriction did nothing to help California's drought.This again is the fault of Californians many of us Have the mindset to just not care until its to late to care..And California doesn't have time to finally have people truly caring about how much water they use
The California drought as of March 2015 has increased severely and has affected not just the residents of California, but also the farmers as well. My claim is to find a reliable way to save water and have the residents of California informed about the situation and the wastefulness of water being replenished. In this paper I want to address the issue of how much water we are constantly wasting even though we are in an exceptionally severe drought. I believe that the water shortage not only affects the residents but also takes a toll in the agricultural areas as well. I want to argue the point that everyone who wastes water is held responsible and what we could do
California has always been the “Golden State,” the state that everyone wants to live in. Californians are supposed to have everything that they want and for the most part that is exactly what they’ve gotten. However, recently all people hear about California is their huge summer water droughts.
The current drought in California has being going on for 3 years now, and continues to worsen. A drought is an extended period of time without rain, and has resulted in California being deficient in water. This has severe consequences for all residents, not just those within the agriculture industry and has affected the area immensely. This drought not only affects the growth of crops, but dries up streams, water reservoirs and wells. The first map below shows the most recent conditions of the drought in California. California is approximately 423, 970 km2, and the majority of this area is affected by the drought. The least severe areas are still considered ‘abnormally dry’ as shown in the map below. California’s agriculture is largely based
ENSO (El Niño/La Niña Southern Oscillation) has a large effect on climate patterns in Southern California. Long-term precipitation patterns associated with El Niño may have an impact on flooding, mudslides, crop damage, coastal erosion, and fishery damage. Yet, there is some uncertainty as to its effects on drought, if at all. This study attempts to understand the effect of ENSO and Drought by analyzing long-term precipitation, sea surface temperatures, and the Palmer Drought Index data as a function of time for three locations in Southern California. The above data was acquired from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the State of California Drought Portal for three ENSO events dating back to 1980 and used to developed
Each day millions of Californians suffer the lack of natural resources caused by the California Drought. A drought a period of time where the amount of precipitation is below average compared to the recent amount of rainfall the region had. According to The Environmental and Energy Study Insitute, the Golden State and along with many Western U.S. states has had a shortage of water since 2012. The drought has caused an enormous impact on our local business, agriculture, and the economy. The Environmental and Energy Institute or EESI has stated that California’s agriculture is at serious risk, as with the lack of precipitation, the ability to farm has been dramatically limited due to the deprived water supply and limitations set by the state
The drought that has been occurring in the state of California, has brought on many complications. The drought is currently on its third year of dryness in the state. According to USAToday, the past three years have been the worst consecutive years of precipitation in the last 119 years of recorded weather data in the state. The California drought is just of many climate changes that have occurred throughout planet Earth’s time, while others are saying, global warming is to blame. Many ask if this problem can change into a more complicated situation, while others ask what could happen if this problem is left unresolved.
Every member of the community should have sufficient access to healthcare so as to have a means of defense against illnesses and pain that can be avoided (Baldwin 2003). Every member of society should have a means of alleviating suffering caused by health complications. The main causes of unequal access to healthcare include poverty, poor education and lifestyle choices. Lack of adequate healthcare providers limits the ability of people to seek medication and treatment from illnesses and diseases (Baldwin 2003). People who live in rural areas are prone to lack healthcare. Quality of healthcare is also limited in rural areas, hence making it hard for people to access quality healthcare.
The earth is the only planet suitable for human being and other livings things to live on as of present time. Globally, ground water resources dwarf surface water supplies. Study has estimated 900 million people lack access to safe drinking water and sanitation in the world (1). Unfortunately, many millions die each year from preventable waterborne diseases. Clean water is globally important to human being in so many ways, water is not only important as an element to hydrate and nurture lives, it is also a source of energy.
While many blame current droughts on climate change, rainfall patterns in areas like California—currently in its fourth consecutive year of drought—have actually varied little from a century ago. But if little is done to curb carbon emissions, what is to come may be far worse. In fact, economic losses associated with climate change, globally, will reach an estimated $3 billion by the end of 2015. Furthermore, these human-induced droughts will uproot entire communities and force them to migrate to regions with more water and food. With climate change set to worsen over the course of this century, food and water shortages will only get worse, and not just for Californians.
This is seen as a problem because before the drought it was hard to feed people. Than again with constant heat hydration was always an issue also. With the hard conditions ones lifestyle has to organized enough to survive.
Drought is another factor of climate change that causes severe damages to agriculture and livestock. The effects of drought on agricultural production and livestock holding can be a detrimental issue and result in quality dissatisfaction of products. The agricultural industry can be affected by drought both economically and environmentally. The economical effects of drought on crops and animals can lead to the loss of money and time. When droughts occur farmers lose money because they will have to spend more money earned from their
