nullEnvironmental Science Stimuli That Can Adversely Impact Life In The Future
This morning, I asked my students to peer into the statistics located on the Worldometer (https://www.worldometers.info/) regarding the following areas: 1. World Population 2. Births this year 3. Deaths this year 3. People Who Have Access to Drinking Water 4. People who have access to food 5. People who have access to Health Care. All of these disciplines and the data projections depicted by the Worldometer have a direct impact on the lives of students at the present with the potential of dramatically adversely affecting their lives in the future. There are presently (at the time of writing this article) almost 9 billion people living on planet Earth. This number is due to the rate of births per second estimated at about 2.5 people per second contrasted against approximately 1 death of a human somewhere around the world dying every second. The population increase also directly impacts the mortality rate in addition to the rise in the numbers of people who have no access to drinking water, food, and health care. Couple these alarming numbers with rapidly depleting natural resources of energy, food, and water, make for immediate attention given to the subject of Environmental Science as a whole. The environment and the effects of climate change, pollution, and the mismanagement of current natural resources are all valid reasons to sound the alarm for awareness relating to the restoration, cultivation, and preservation of our Environment. Hence, the importance of an agency like Public Lab and their contributions to the studies in Environmental Science for students, teachers, parents, and the like.
