Why is the world producing so much garbage? Garbage is an unavoidable result of consumption. And to 42 the high standard of living that has been reached in many industrialized countries, we must continue to consume, as the consumption keeps the wheel of industry turning. We use the rapidly disappearing natural resources of the earth to feed the machines of industry, which 43 produce endless quantities of consumer goods. What we haven’t been able to do, however, is to find a successful way to 44 all the by-products of industry and the products themselves when they are used up, worn out, or 45 . One of the biggest causes of the garbage problem is the world’s exploding population. More and more people means more and more waste. Before the industrial revolution, when the world population was very small, the problem of garbage did not exist. Whatever waste was produced then could be absorbed by the earth without 46 nature’s balance, but nature can no longer cope with the amount of garbage that is currently being produced.

A slow-rolling series of storms that battered the American West this week brought snowfall and high wind on Thursday to parts of California, where weather-weary residents have already endured lashing rain, heavy snowfall and a destructive tornado. Since the wild weather began slogging ashore on Monday, five deaths in California and two in Colorado have been blamed on storms. On Thursday, up to a 1 foot (30 centimeters) of snow fell on Colorado mountains, and northern Nevada was expecting as much as 7 feet (2.13 meters) on top of the 2-3 feet (more than half a meter) that already had fallen. Conditions were improving on Thursday in Arizona, as water levels quickly fell in a Sedona-area creek that had fattened from a trickle into a river of mud, forcing a dozen neighborhoods to evacuate. Damage assessments were expected to begin on Thursday.
