The current events of today are troubling when looking at the effects that Humans had upon the environment. I have provided several current events over the past several weeks which demonstrate the effects that we have on the environment but also a possible solution to one of the biggest problems we face today. The first current event article that I posted I found very interesting was the global evaporation of the lakes. It was stated that about 16% of the worlds lake water would be completely evaporated by the end of the century. (ScienceDaily) The article showed how the immediate challenges we have with our lakes disappearing. The lakes are leaving at such an alarming rate, that Lake Mead which is in the Southwest due to drought and water demand is approximately 40% of its capacity as of August 2017.
