ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES WORLDWIDE.
According to the text on pages 81 & 82, answer.
Globalization reaches the natural environment since many of the environmental problems are global in scope and of general concern. For this reason, for several decades, different governments, environmental groups, and other sectors of society have been proposing alternatives to environmental problems of a global nature.
According to that paragraph, any sector of society hasn't proposed something to solve the problems of the environment.
The main environmental and natural systems of the world are affected by the high dimension of production and industrialization worldwide. The dimension of productivity and the increase in technologies and industrial processes have led to the environment being affected mainly by:
According to the text, which of the following has not affected the environment?
Low dimension of production.
The creation of vehicles zero CO2 emissions.
The increase in technologies.
The increas e in emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases into the atmosphere. This problem is related to the process of global warming or intensification of the greenhouse effect, which is causing a gradual increase in the temperature of the planet and a global climate disturbance.
The deterioration of the quality of the continental and marine waters. This situation has caused the decrease of fishing resources due to pollution processes.
One of the consequences of the high levels of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere is:
The contamination of the continental waters.
The global warming.
The decrease of the greenhouse gas emissions.
The decrease in the number and variety of animal and plant species in the different continents, as a result of economic development processes not consistent with the care and protection of the environment.
The loss of the productive capacity of the soils, due, to a great extent, to intensive agricultural practices that do not allow an adequate regeneration of the soil. Much of the production of toxic waste, as well as its transport and final disposal of large industries, influence this problem by altering the composition of the soil to the point of desertification.
According to the text, what is causing desertification?
