The answers are found in Ch. 1–4 of Environmental Science. 1. What would you include in a brief summary on the history of the environmental movement? The environmental movement is changing rapidly, there is constantly many babies born every day. It is causing the world suffer socially, global changes, and crops decreasing. As the world continues to grow it has affected the environment by trying to make as many crops as possible to feed this nation.
Many people go hungry every night because they do not have the food or nutrition to feed their bodies. The food is very scarce for some countries. 2. Explain the main point concerning exponential growth and whether it is good or bad. Compare exponential growth to a logistic growth curve and explain how these might apply to human population growth. What promotes exponential growth? What constrains population growth? Exponential growth is not limited to growth, which to me could lead to a bad thing.
Exponential growth could lead to fewer resources they have available. Logistic growth has a limit to it compared to exponential growth does not. I think women not being on birth control or even having sex without a condom promotes exponential growth. The population is a constraint because it is slowing down the economic growth. 3. Compare predictions for human population growth in developed countries versus developing countries.
Why is it difficult to predict the growth of Earth’s human population? Why should population growth be predicted? ? What will happen if there is exponential human growth? Developing countries are likely to break even on the population because grow slower than a developed country. Most of the developing countries are usually Africa, Trinidad, and etc. It is difficult to predict the earth population because it is changing rapidly as the each year goes by it is tripling. If they were able to predict the population growth it would be better for us so they can know how much resources they need grown within a certain amount of time.
If this earth becomes exponential then we are in for some trouble the world will probably end from no resources, or from us ruining the earth. 4. How do principles of system theory apply to the Earth as a living system? Explain interactions between humans and natural ecosystems. The principles are just about the same far has carrying organs, cells, and organisms. The interactions between humans and ecosystems without the ecosystem we would not be here. We need the ecosystem to maintain our lives and live.
