What’s causing the sixth mass extinction?


Essay for Task 1

The table, which has been presented, compares the quantity of automobiles produced in three countries over a seven year period, between 2003 and 2009.  From an overall perspective, the number of these produced in Thailand were significantly higher compared to those in Australia and Argentina.

Thailand amounted to the largest automobile producer during each time period. At the end of 2003, it secured outputting nearly 785,000 cars from where it jumped to just over 1.1 million in 2006, which was the largest quantity produced throughout the time-frame of all these countries. In slight contrast, however, that swell fell back down by roughly 150,000 to be recorded at just over 950,000 in 2009.

Despite those higher aforementioned figures, Australia and Argentina built far fewer cars. In 2003, Australia produced just over 430,000 which was its peak production year compared with Argentina that performed its lowest of approximately 150,000 cars in the same year. Soon thereafter, both countries had contrasting patterns. While Australian production figures reduced modestly in output from about 330,000 to around 215,000 in 2009; Argentina rather, went on expanding production from just under 415,000 in 2006 to a marked progress of slightly more than half a million automobiles in the year 2009.


Essay for Task 2

Whether it be on land or sea, all creatures great and small are on the verge of extinction due to a range of human activities. There are a number of causes for this alarming trend such as worldwide growth, but solutions can be drawn to solve this overall problem.

There are a number of causes related to this issue. One major reason is evidently the growth in consumption levels. The behavior of over-consumption is leading to a swift deterioration of habitats by expanding land use for agricultural needs; and also by over-fishing of the oceans, which is thereby breaking the food-chain link within the fragile aquatic ecosystem. Another reason can be the practices by industry, such as dumping waste into land fill causing it to ooze into surrounding waterways where animals live and feed. The motive behind this is due to maximizing economic profits. Equally, the emission scheme may not be regarded by the larger industrious nations and this in turn brings more atmospheric heat that will ultimately create more decimation for the biodiversity.

There are, however, ways to deal with these concerns. A significant dealing could be to begin sustaining localized agricultural food outlets that can focus on reducing transported food from corporate farms including both meats and seafood with the purpose of shifting away from a compromised food industry. An additional solution perhaps would be for an independent body, free from government and industry, to impose severe penalties for when industry exceeds its limit of the emission of greenhouse gases and/ or discharges any toxic waste into waterways or oceans. In order to benefit from this, the compensation from these hazardous practices can financially and technologically support forestry or aquaculture to begin reversing this alarming issue. 

In conclusion, the aforementioned human behaviors and practices are researched by biologists to be those affecting all these creatures faster than what is currently known.  Therefore, providing that endeavours can be sought, governed and sustained, only then will planet Earth see a recovery in land and sea animal populations to reduce further extinctions.
