The human impact on this planet has been huge in a relatively short period of time. These pictures are not about data, but about better picturing this impact through visual examples. While viewing these, keep in mind that our current extinction rate is 1000x the background level and that wild animal populations have shrunk an average of 52% in 40 years.

In this video Paul Andersen explains how humans are impacting the Earth through farming, mining, pollution and climate change. According to the NGSS wise management can reduce impacts on the planet. This will become more important as developing countries start consuming more resources. A K-12 teaching progression is also included.

Check out the website Care2.com! Just as a disclaimer, I made this video when I was 13. When I talked about Mother Earth being mad, I more so meant that part metaphorically. I didn't mean that disasters are a cause of human activity, I meant beyond that, of how we are treating our earth, and the limited time we will have left if we continue to do so - our own self destruction. But looking back, this video is also a bit sadder than I had hoped - I wanted it to be factual through imagry, then inspiring at the end, as I think uplifting people is much more important. Anyways, thank you everyone for all the great responses to this video (: I can't tell you how honored I felt when I heard this was playing in classes at schools and colleges around the nation! Keep spreading the awareness. We all live in such a beautiful world, and humans really are beautiful souls with such great potential, we just have to reawaken to who we are, ridding ourselves of ignorance. The more truth we see, the more we can do to change our ways into more productive habits. And it really all does begin with caring. First about ourselves, then other people, then the world. Even though we cannot take on the responsibility of the entire earth, we can take personal responsibility; pledge to our Earth, and everything on it. LOVE, LIGHT, LIFE. HOPE AND HAPPINESS TO ALL!

Biodiversity is the variety of life. There are thought to be 8.7 million species on planet Earth. And, as we saw in this video, biodiversity is of utmost importance to humans. The loss of one key species can have a detrimental impact on many levels; from other species of animals to plants to the physical environment, as shown by wolves. Human activities are reducing biodiversity. Our future depends upon maintaining a good level of biodiversity, and so we need to start taking measures to try and stop the reduction. In this video we are going to look at how humans are negatively impacting biodiversity. As the world population has grown from 1.5 billion in 1900 to nearly 7.5 billion people today, unsurprisingly the land use has changed. Habitats have been destroyed in favour of agriculture, forestry, fishing, urbanisation and manufacturing. Unsurprisingly, habitat loss has greatly reduced the species richness. Habitat fragmentation has also meant that populations have been split into smaller subunits, which then when faced with challenging circumstances have not been able to adapt and survive. After habitat loss, overharvesting has had a huge effect on biodiversity. Humans historically exploit plant and animal species for short-term profit. If a resource is profitable, we develop more efficient methods of harvesting it, inevitably depleting the resource. As is currently happening with fishing and logging. The exploited species then needs protection. The difficulty is that the demand then outstrips the supply, and so the resource value rises. This increases the incentive to extract the resource and leads to the final collapse of the population. As happened with whales, elephants, spotted cats, cod, tuna and many more species. Human activities are polluting the air and water. Toxic discharge into the water from industrial processes unsurprisingly has a negative effect on the local aquatic species by killing, weakening or affecting their ability to reproduce. Phosphorous and nitrogen in fertilisers run-off agricultural fields and pass into rivers. These surplus nutrients cause algae to bloom, which then starves other aquatic species of oxygen and light, causing them to die. Acid rain is one consequence of humans polluting the air. This causes lakes and water bodies to become more acidic, killing off fish, molluscs, amphibians and many other species. Huge impact humans have had on planet Earth is the introduction of alien species to habitats. In fact, it is estimated that on any given day there are 3000 species in transit aboard ocean-going vessels! Alien species can cause problems in a number of ways… pause the video and have a look. Throughout the earth’s history there have been periods of rapid climate change, that have led to mass extinction events. We are currently in a period of fluctuating climate, but nearly all scientists agree that human activities, like burning fossil fuels, are speeding up global warming. We don’t know how much climate change is going to affect biodiversity in future, but it’s predicted to be huge. Loss of sea ice and ocean acidification are already causing huge reductions in biodiversity. Climate change alters temperature and weather patterns, with changing patterns of rainfall and drought expected to have significant impacts on biodiversity. So there we have a selection of human-related impacts on biodiversity. There are much more, which a quick search on the internet will bring up.

◙ Our nature has provided us innumerable things like the air we breathe,the water we drink and the land we live. We cannot compensate in return except to take care and not to misuse them. ◙ Human activities have affected environment in a number of ways.Disposal of waste in rivers and other inland bodies have polluted water to such an extent that it cannot be self purified. ◙ All our economic activities are dependent on resouce use.If natural resources are misused or overused,they may not be available in future.Therefore, if we do not check the current rate of their use, they are bound to be finished soon. ◙ The major causes for the damage of environment are industrialisation,population,urbanisation,deforestation,increase in the number of automobiles and excessive use of fertilisers,pesticides,soap and detergents ,plastics and other synthetic materials. ◙ Humans are one of the living species of the earth.It is their duty to look after nature.Man is considered as the most intelligent and dominating species of the earth.He has used and overused most of the resources of earth for his physical comforts.the very survival of human beings is in danger due to shortage of potable water,clean air and shelter. ◙ We should remember that the resources available to us especially the natural resources are a product of millions of years.These resources need to be properly cared and used judiciously by all of us. "Man belongs to earth,earth doesnot belongs to man". We should live in this earth as a part of nature not as master of nature. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Top 10 Most Beautiful Airports in The World 2017" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaqHbgTm5KU -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Subscribe to our channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCh7GKS5lSr_i27ZKOpVrjw

This video is one that I created for introducing a concept in ecology. It does not go in detail but its gives the students an idea of what is happening around them and prepares them for pointing out human impact on the environment. This video should get students to rethink their actions as individuals. Its actually my second time attempting to use this software, hope you enjoy

The increasing rate of human impact on the environment is a global issue. Pollution, excess energy and resource use among many others is affecting the environment negatively. Industrialized cities such as Boston, in order to grow have cut down forests and trees, thus affecting primary productivity. Primary productivity is the basis of life and diversity on earth. Cities lack autotrophs which do photosynthesis and supply energy and nutrients for the environment. With the depletion of forests the earth is losing many photosynthetic organisms in turn affecting other plants and animals. Las Vegas is an example of turning a biome into a livable human habitat. Due to being situated in the desert the city of Las Vegas is lacking water resources and must find water supply else where. With rising temperature changes droughts are occurring which affects the water supply Las Vegas depends on. Las Vegas is helping limiting water resource in the southwest. A huge global human impact is the melting of the glaciers. Rising temperatures due to pollution such as fossil combustion have helped to speed up the melting of glaciers. Water has high specific heat and is hard to cool down once heated up, so the water has high heat absorbance and solar insulation. Melting of glaciers is a self perpetuating movement, meaning once they start melting they do not stop. The excess water flowing from the glaciers into the ocean affects oceanic currents which in turn create global climate change. Overall the impact of humans on the environment is taking a toll on the earth and it is up to us to change our ways.

The population, affluence, and destructive technology of a population impact the environment according to the IPAT equation. An analogous model is the ecological footprint which increases with development of a nation. Large economies contribute to resource use and habitat destruction. However small economies can lead to problems like disease and hunger. Do you speak another language?

Coral reefs are becoming unproductive just when we need them the most. Reefs supply millions with food and other resources. This ecosystem is facing greater rates of disturbance because of our actions. Too much disturbance reduces the productivity, diversity and resilience of the coral reef ecosystem. Preserving this ecosystem will rely largely on preserving the habitats and species of the coral reef ecosystem.

As humans we have more of an impact on this planet than many of us realize. We have evolved over time and have changed a great deal. In the recent decade our demands on the resources that earth has to offer have become overwhelming. Our population has grown exponentially and with it so have our needs. The industrial revolution has lead to greenhouse gas buildup as well as increased habitat fragmentation, deforestation, and water use. The U.S footprint is 9.4 global hectares as of 2005. Earth can only sustain life at 1.4 global hectares per capita, therefore we are in severe breach of this limit. Our lifestyles of extravagance and heavy consumerism are negatively impacting the planet. We must reconsider the way we live in an effort to help save the planet and the species that we share it with. Ns202 Prof. Hammer Alex Williams
