Brexit is short for "British exit" - and is the word people use to talk about the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union (EU). Without doubt Brexit will affect UK's structures and this is not a good news for UK's public. Brexit has hurt the UK economy and, in the long term, more pain is on the cards, according to analysis by a government-funded academic think tank. We want to focus on and analyze the environmental effects of Brexit on UK.
An ecosystem includes all of the living things (plants, animals and organisms) in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere). Ecosystems are the foundations of the Biosphere and they determine the health of the entire earth system.
The benefits and disadvantages of globalization are the subject of ongoing debate. Globalization has also created some areas of concern, and prominent among these is the impact that it has had on the environment.
The world is facing an environmental crisis of epic proportions that is the result of decades of economic myopia and mismanagement. Junglenomics describes how to halt and reverse the seemingly unstoppable tide of pollution and destruction that threatens the very viability of our modern world. Because failed markets lie at the heart of these problems, an urgent, major reform of markets is a top priority if the global environment is to be stabilised in time to avoid catastrophic outcomes. It maintains that natural ecosystems provide the blueprint for this - showing us how to reorganise the economic domain to coexist benignly with natural environments, mitigate climate change, halt species decline, and benefit the poorest, in the most effective and cost-efficient way. The “plan” that so many are crying out for is thus there before us, in Nature, and we only have to recognise and grasp that fundamental truth to begin to re-establish our presence within the ancient natural rhythms of life on Earth.
The School strike for climate (also known variously as Fridays for Future, Youth for Climate and Youth Strike 4 Climate) is an international movement of school students who are deciding not to attend classes and instead take part in demonstrations to demand action to prevent further global warming and climate change.
A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup has been modified in a laboratory using genetic engineering or transgenic technology. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
Microplastics aren't just ubiquitous in water – they are spread widely in soils on land too and can even end up in the food we eat. Unwittingly, we may be consuming tiny fragments of plastic with almost every bite we take.
