Yet more Complications
- The reason that there is a huge difference between night and day temperatures is because the air is so dry, the heat practically vanishes at night.
- One third of the earth is desert.
- Desert means 'abandoned place'
- The two facts above are hinting that we can only live on 2/3 the land on this earth, which, in my opinion, is not a good thing.
- Deserts often contain large mineral deposits.
In fact, it's probably safer to say that the desert is threatening us- every year it grows, an effect caused by both the spreading of the sand and global warming.
Endangered Desert Species
The very well-known bird, particularly to the Americans, is (and has been for a while) endangered. It takes home in the Mojave desert, as well as other places.
These animals have always been seen as a sign of strength, but if things continue how they are, they are not going to be for much longer. The mountain lions reside in the sandy mountains in the desert, as well as other places.
We, as humans, could also not produce as much solar power, although this isn't as big of a problem.
