This map can show where floods are going to be. Also it can show where run off water will go! This can help save lives and help protect wildlife. If the world keeps creating new technology, we might be able to stop flooding! The big impact is that we can see where floods will go.

I think that it's good that the government has come up with something like this. As long as they get the information out fast enough to the citizens, then this will do some good. Also, the big impact could also be the changing of technology, because our country keeps gaining new and newer things that we can't keep up which is putting us further in debt.
Molly Kellar's comment, October 4, 2013 6:04 AM
This is a really good idea. As the world keeps coming up with new sources of technology we're being impacted in a huge way.

I agree with Jack that we couldn't use technology to make the deforestation down. Also to have more the forest keep growing and maybe go back to the way it used to be.
Cameron Miller's comment, October 3, 2013 7:15 PM
We do need paper, but all they advancements in technology are making that need decrease more and more. I think we just need to find a way to balance it all out so the lumber companies stay profitable and we can cut down on deforestation.
Kolbie VanDusseldorp's comment, October 4, 2013 4:20 AM
This is a big issue. Although the trees are renewable we are taking them faster than we can produce them. This is a great article and we need to focus on how to keep from using so many trees.

Farmers are loosing land, and and animals are loosing there habitats. Farmers used to plant 10 or 12 different crops, but now they can plant 2 to 5 crops. price for crops have increased which made the land prices increase too! We keep destroying farm land to make land to build cities and towns on! The big impact is that crop production has downsized a lot in the past couple of years! Also we have destroyed so many habitats to make room for towns.

The flood that happened in Boulder County didn't just affect homes and roads. It also affected habitats of animals. The bigger animals such as deer are getting some of the problems from the floods, but the real problem is the smaller animals. A lot of people have called in to say that the have found a lot dead birds! The fish are also struggling because the flood waters are full of debris and silt, so it makes it hard for the fish to get oxygen. But usually wild animals have a way of surviving in these problems. They say that the effected animals' population will eventually bounce back. The big impact will be that the population of small animals will drop, but it will eventually rise back up!

Is Denali AKA Mount McKinley, the highest mountain in the United States and the highest point in North America, shrinking?

Kenzie Nossaman's comment, September 25, 2013 5:35 PM
Mount McKinley is the highest mountain in the United States, and has is the highest point in North America. Some are saying that it is shrinking but it is not. The elevation is a lot lower than it was before. The elevation before was 20,300 feet that was in 1989. Geographers took a new measurement in 2012 it was 20,237. Thats a difference of about 83 feet! The big impact is that if the drop keeps happening in millions of year there won't be a Mount McKinley.
Molly Kellar's comment, October 4, 2013 6:05 AM
I thought this was a very interesting article . It is very weird to think that a mountain as great as Mount McKinley could shrink. In many years it would be strange for there to not be anything there.

In Newport they are changing there land design. Every 6 or 7 years the change the design. This year 2013- 2014 their main goal is land- use. They want to re-do the Newport Beach. They had to make sure to think of the type of beach, the location, and the number. The big impact is that once they finish the beach, they will have a major tourist attraction.

Oil spill dumps over 5k gallons of crude across flood-drenched Colorado #AnimalsRight SAVE THE PALNET EARTH

Oil spill dumps over 5k gallons of crude across flood-drenched Colorado #AnimalsRight SAVE THE PALNET EARTH | Wildlife | Scoop.it
More than 5,250 gallons of crude oil have spilled into a river in Colorado, contaminating much of the same region that was ravaged days earlier by a monumental flood that left no fewer than eight residents dead.

There has been more than 5,250 gallons of crude oil that spilled into a river in Colorado. A couple days earlier there was a huge flood that came through, that left no more than 8 people dead.The spill happened because of the high rising flood waters. All the animals and plants are going to be covered in the oil and water. The fish in the river will start to die because they won't be able to see, so they won't be able to find food! Instead of just having water to clean up the DNR will have to figure out a way to get rid of all the oil. They also closed about 1,900 oil and gas wells due to high waters. This will slow down oil production!
Allie Moore's comment, October 2, 2013 2:53 AM
I think this article is good for people to hear about because it will inform them that we need to be more careful so we don't have oil spills like this. People, animals, and plants are in danger during oil spills like this and it is a very big problem. Hopefully that others see this article and can do something to save those people, plants, and animals during this oil spill.
Kolbie VanDusseldorp's comment, October 4, 2013 4:22 AM
I agree with allie. It is very important for U.S. citizens and major businesses to be careful and watch to make sure they don't create spills. They take lots of work to clean up and waste lots of money. Something the U.S. can't afford right now.

In Saudi Arabia there is an out break of animals carrying the virus MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). This virus is starting to affect people and they are carrying it and giving it to other people! So far 135 people are infected with this, and and 61 have died from it. They haven't found a definite source of the virus yet.
Delaney Poole's comment, October 2, 2013 11:58 PM
I think that they need to find a cure and research it, to find a way to make it so people are getting infected and possibly later dying. I think they need to test people, so it will help others down the line if they have this disease.
Cameron Miller's comment, October 3, 2013 7:11 PM
Yeah the really need to find a cure and research this disease. This will continue to kill and infect people until we find a cure and the source of this disease.
