Think About it : Human impacts
These are just some positive effects, but sadly there are bad too.
Deforestation, oil spills, and the spraying of toxic pesticides and fertilizers are just a few of what humans do to this earth. Deforestation is where all the trees in a forest are cut down and their stumps removed, leaving the soil barren. Without any roots to hold the soil, it eventually erodes away and becomes a dessert like reigon with little life. Oil spills are espically bad, because they can take years to clean up. Not only do they kill everything under the water, they kill anything around that area too. The spraying of fertilizers and /or pesticides are probsaly the worst out of them all, from rain, they mix with runoff or penetrate the ground water then go to the nearest water source. In the Gulf of Mexico for example, those fertilizers create algae blooms and create dead zones, as would happen our little pond.
