SOCIAL ISSUES by Mind Map: SOCIAL ISSUES

1. GLOBAL WARMING

1.1. causes

1.1.1. Burning fossil fuels

1.1.1.1. When we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas to create electricity or power our cars, we release CO2 pollution into the atmosphere.

1.1.2. Over-exploitation and tree- clearing

1.1.2.1. Humans clear vast areas of vegetation around the world for farming, urban and infrastructure development or to sell tree products such as timber and palm oil,...

1.1.3. Farming

1.1.3.1. Some fertilisers that farmers use release nitrous oxide, which is another greenhouse gas.

1.2. effects

1.2.1. Level of CO2 pollution per person is nearly double the average of other developed nations and more than four times the world average.

1.2.2. The imbalance of ecosystem- decrease in fish stock, rain forest burnings,...

1.2.3. Increase in average temperatures and temperature extremes such as erosion, drought, a rise in sea level,...

2. CRIME RATE

2.1. causes

2.1.1. No access to livelihoods and jobs

2.1.1.1. Joblessness results in a loss of salary, and many families are left without sufficient incomes to meet living expenses

2.1.2. Poor education system

2.1.2.1. Many families can’t afford to send their children to school and need them to work, which leads to their lack in education and skills to apply for high-salary jobs

2.1.3. Lack of infrastructure

2.1.3.1. Living “off the grid” means the inability to go to school, work, or market to buy and sell goods. Isolation limits opportunity

2.1.4. Limited capacity of the government

2.1.4.1. Not every government can provide social welfare program to its citizens — and without that safety net, there’s nothing to stop vulnerable families from backsliding further into extreme poverty if something goes wrong

2.2. effects

2.2.1. The increase in crime rate

2.2.2. Worldwide spreading of infectious diseases as well as mortality; also malnutrition- esp to the children.

2.2.3. Decrease in life expectancy

2.2.4. The downfall of economics on the large scale

2.2.5. High rate of unemployment
