C. The destruction of natural habitats is a very big thing. Trees are essentially what provide humans oxygen in order to live off of, absorbing carbon dioxide and providing oxygen. They consume carbon dioxide, and give us oxygen to survive off of. A single tree, on average can absorb nearly 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. Trees can also stop erosion, by catching and reducing the power of rainfall before it falls to the ground. Tree’s roots also hold the dirt down so that wind erosion is reduced. Another environmental issue that we’re covering is the fact of The Steelheaded trout not being able to reproduce very easily. In recent years, the city of Union City has implemented concrete blocks going upstream, preventing things, such as the trout from going upstream. The trout depend on being able to reproduce by laying their eggs upstream, and not helping them would be detrimental to the food chain, and the environment.
