There is not much time left to help our planet before it passes the point of no return. Everyone wants instant gratification when it comes to helping the planet. No one except a few people realize the extent of how we as humans are actually affecting our planet. This planet is all we have. The picture I have attached shows how beautiful our little planet is and should emphasis the care we put into it to preserve it so our descendants still have grass to stand on.
The Earth is big, very big, however it is all we know and all we have ever lived on. This planet is all we have and we are effectively killing it as a race. We have to start making strides in preserving our planet now or else we will end up with nothing in a century or two. In general people will seem to shrug it off saying we have time to fix it.
This Blog will be used to explain Hydrogeology, its applications towards the environment. I will try to maintain a factual standpoint and give good information on every post I make.
Currently environmental work done on the planet is having a hard time gaining any traction with any big backers because there is no money in it. It would take most of our planets resources funneled into several small projects in order to see a noticeable change on our planet’s climate. The main problem with climate change is that people want an instant remedy for the problem. If the main governments banded together a solution can be found to only begin to scratch the surface of the problem that is climate change.
Climate Change has become a hot topic in recent years. Due to an increase in global average temperatures this has become a huge issue amongst people wondering how we can fix the problem. However the solution does not lie in one and done remedies for the problem. The solution actually lies in a steady process of converting to using renewable energy. There are other small changes we as a race would need to make over the years in order to alleviate some of the pressure we have put on our environment in recent years.
The Earth’s climate is changing and has always been changing throughout all of Earth’s history that we have observed. As it stands the Earth has been going through periods of warmer and colder climates alternating roughly on an interval of 100,000 years based on the past roughly 3 million years. In the recent past mankind has been the cause of an accelerated warming of the planet.
In general people take for granted their availability of water especially in America. Groundwater work is done on a very regular basis to ensure water quality stays up to a certain standard for consumption. Water makes up 70% of the Earth’s surface, however only 1/10,000 of that water is readily available fresh drinking water that sits on the surface. The other large portion of fresh water is only available deep underground. This makes providing people with fresh drinking water a constant struggle not only for us here in America but everywhere in the World.
