3 Reasons How Environmental Problems Affect Our Economy.

Alissa here and I want to start things off with a subject that I have been meaning to write about for quite some time now.  

Environmental issues that can affect our local businesses and the way they operate is a matter that goes untouched.  So little emphasis is put on our environment.  Not only that, but it is rarely associated with business topics.   

Unless you’re really searching for this type of subject, you probably will never hear or read about it.  

Environment and Business

1.  Emissions

Have you ever gone through a smog check and your car and they told you your emissions timing is not passing?

If you haven’t then I’ll bet a bottle of fine wine you know someone who has.  First off let’s describe an emission and identify what exactly we are talking about here.  

By definition, an emission is basically a discharge.  In this case, we will be talking about the discharge of gasses or radiation that our exhaust gives off when we throttle up and down our city roads.  

Now how can emissions affect our local economy you ask?  Grant me permission to proceed and I will answer that million dollar question.  

Excellent!  Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.

Here is a good list for us to get started:  

  • Think of the millions of motors our Americas businesses run off of.  You have drilling rigs that have huge motors that run 24 hours a day at times, manufacturing companies that utilize motors.  There are laws that protect our environment against emissions that these motors give off into our ground and air.  Business have to keep up with these laws and pay hefty fees to maintain clean emissions.
  • Business transportation has a large effect on our economy.  Distribution companies all over the country have to abide by emission laws which can get extremely expensive for the big rigs.  How do you think we our local grocery stores receives goods?  Thousands of trucks on the road every day.
  • Plenty of businesses out there are always looking to shave a dollar off their cost and as a consequence many companies are getting caught in emission scams.  This is an extreme example but check out the Volkswagen emissions scam that was just revealed in late September 2015?

2.  Global Warming

Global Warming

Hot Earth Core

Global warming, I used to read and report on this subject all throughout my school days.  What happens when we leave school and forget about global warming all together?  

Out of sight, out of mind right?  I used to think so, but the more and more I understand how important the environment is to our future I continued my research from those days elementary and middle school.  

Here are a few things I came up with that I would love to share with you:

  • Loss of work and efficiency in the outside working world.  I would like to resort back to the drilling rigs and oilfield workers that are outside on a daily basis.  If you have ever had to earn a living in 110-degree weather then you can relate to my point on a loss of work efficiency.  Who do you think would be more productive?  A working crew that works in 65-degree weather or a crew that has to work in 110-degree weather?  I rest my case.
  • When people are forced out of their habitation due to massive droughts and lack of resources to live, then that will cause a massive movement of people looking for another place to settle.  This is never a good thing due to the fact that this usually causes war and activation of military forces.  Which we all know cost time and money for the government.  
  • Abnormal growing seasons is something your local farming companies may have to deal with.  Global warming has been known to cause CO2 concentration in the air resulting in overgrown crops. You might ask how is extra crops a bad thing?  A huge chunk of a farmers spending cost goes to dealing with pest and fertilizing.  When crops overgrow, farmers have to utilize more water and attempt to control more pest than anticipated.  As a lot of people know California has had an ongoing drought problem in 2015 and the problem doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.  

3.  Air Pollution

Man Walking in Environment Alone

Some of the worst air in America is sitting right in the middle of California’s valley.  As you drive east of the pacific ocean you have Kern County and Fresno County, homes to millions of Americans.  If you are familiar with valley fever, then this is the locations where you can acquire such a sickness.

Los Angeles and other big cities are huge contributors to air pollution but at least the people of these coastal cities are lucky enough to have the ocean winds to carry the pollution out of the immediate area.  Good for Los Angeles but bad for the people of the valley.  

Most of that pollution usually migrates and settles into the valley of Kern and Fresno Counties creating terrible air quality for the people that reside there.  At times, kids and outdoor workers are advised to stay indoors to the air quality being so bad.  

Many people of the valley suffer from chronic allergies and other illnesses causing health care to have to kick in.  Of course, not everyone has medical insurance and have to rely on our government to help out with the medical bills.

This is just one example of how air pollution is affecting our economy.  

Do you part and contribute to the solution and not the problem?  

Thank you for reading and if you have found this piece to be valuable please share it with all of your friends and family on social media.

    I find your theory about goblal warming to be similar to mine and many others. I, too, believe that overpopulation is having a negative affect on the environment and one such example is an increase in goblal temperature. If you go to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website you can read a lot about what has been found out about goblal warming, like: “Scientists know for certain that human activities are changing the composition of Earth’s atmosphere. Increasing levels of greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide (CO2 ), in the atmosphere since pre-industrial times have been well documented. There is no doubt this atmospheric buildup of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is largely the result of human activities.” The more people there are the more we will speed up these negative affects (e.g. goblal warming).As to the other ideas about the cycles of goblal temperature change there have been a number of studies that have came to similar conclusions. Some past and on-going studies that examine the air trapped in ice core samples taken from Antarctica and glaciers in general notice trends in the warming and cooling of the Earth.The EPA responds to these findings, saying ” nevertheless, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated there was a discernible’ human influence on climate; and that the observed warming trend is unlikely to be entirely natural in origin’. “There other studies that look at sediment deposits to track climate change I have not read much on this subject, but dropped a link at the bottom if you would like to read more.If you are interested in the subject of over-population and environmental problems from a literary angle, might I suggest the books by Daniel Quinn “Ishmael” and “My Ishmael.” You could also read some utopian/ dystopia writing “Walden Two,” “Herland,” “1984,” Plato’s “Republic,” etc.; there is actually a ton of writing out there on the subject. This may be going away from your original question; however, this type of writing attempts to look at how to create a harmony within human life, one that includes balancing the population within a given sphere. Now that you have this idea what are you going to do?

Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions offer you Online editions of their diplomas but usually for a drastically higher payment than the companies that specialize in online degree programs.
