The topics of: Energy, agriculture, pollution and climate change, biodiversity, and random miscellaneous environmental incongruities bring up some of the most crucial concerns of today's environmental issues. There is so much going on in today's world revolving around environmental concerns, and the information in newspapers serve as a great informational tool to inform the economy of what is going on around them and possibly what they can do to help.
The environmental issues associated with the development and use of oil, gas, nuclear power, electricity, and wind/solar power fall under the category of "Energy." Energy is one of the most important issues there are, as energy is what makes the world work and act productively/efficiently. The absence of gas, oil, or electricity would put the world at a standstill and leave us stuck in the past, technology wise because these energy resources are needed for manufacturing, transportation, and to keep the world alive. Analyzing all the articles revolving around energy issues, I would say the majority are directly correlated with the politics in energy. Between the British Energy concerns, OPEC's debates on oil production, and the Texas Energy company's random donations, it's hard to tell who to trust when it comes to energy concerns. Many businesses seem to be caught up in fraud nowadays or bankruptcy and trust lies in very few companies' possession as not many can be trusted with money or decisive actions. Also, the occasional rise in prices on oil and other energy resources are all to common as countries hoard environmental resources in attempt to gain profit through a meager controlled sale.
Agriculture is also among the primary concerns of the world. Agriculture deals with food production, and without proper and efficient food production, there could be serious environmental concern pertaining to population growth or possibly population declination. The most notable concerns with agriculture are undoubtedly the serious droughts that many countries have faced this year, the difficulties of farmers, and the constant recalling of food products due to disease found within. The majority of the articles pertained to bad things that were occurring in agriculture or the food production industry, which leads one to be pessimistic on the way food is being produced lately. The struggle of farmers to gain more government funding has always been a concern, but the concern has elevated to a new level as droughts are affecting farmers' crops and making it much harder for them to make a living with a smaller margin of food production. All the recent recalling of meat is just unheard of, can you imagine how many people are getting sick from contaminated food, and they don't even know it? This arises a serious concern for the public's health, and for all the wasted food that is recalled and then thrown out.
Pollution and climate change are always something you need to seriously...
