When plates collide they can either fold or fault which means they either make mountains (fold) or make earthquakes (fault). - Weathering and Erosion(some examples of destructive forces) formed the Grand Canyon. Some examples of destructive forces are volcanoes, earthquakes, erosion, weathering andglaciers.

Water scarcity is the lack of sufficient available waterresources to meet the demands of water usage within a region. It already affects every continent and around 2.8 billion people around the world at least one month out of every year. More than 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water.
360,000,000 GALLONS OF OIL IN OUR OCEANS
OIL RUN OFF
An oil spill is a release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment, especially the ocean ecosystem, due to human mistakes, and is a type of pollution.
SHIPS ARE 20% OF OIL POLLUTION
GASES IN ATMASEFEAR
MAKES EARTH HOTTER
Global warming is a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants.
Climate change is the heating up of the planet. It is caused when people burn too many fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are natural fuels, like oil, gas and wood. Burning them creates greenhouse gases that trap heat in the air. Over time, this warms the whole planet. The oceans get warmer, too. Warmer oceans can be harmful to sea life.
HURRICANES HURT THE CORAL
TRASH COVERS THE TOP OF THE OCEAN
Coral bleaching is a process where the coral colonies lose their color, due to the loss of pigments by microscopic algae (zooxanthellae) living in symbiosis with their host organisms (polyps), or because these zooxanthellae have been expelled.
waste management. The processes involved in dealing with the waste of humans and organisms, including minimization, handling, processing, storage, recycling, transport, and final disposal.
