Wells referred the consequences of our actions as “bashing the ozone layer” to emphasize how impactful and critical our actions are endangering the Earth. We should look at limpets not only as a cephalopod, but also in the ways we are indirectly affecting them. In conclusion, “Civilization and the Limpet” by Martin Wells reminded us all about how our joints is the backbone to our way of process informations that hold up a civilization. At the same time, we have to also respect and recognize the cephalopods that do not have joints and still successfully living their lives.
In Kolbert’s “The Darkening Sea”, Kolbert shows how “Caldeira began to model the effects of carbon dioxide on the oceans in 1999, when he did some work for the Department of Energy. The department wanted to know what the environment consequences would be of capturing CO^2 from smokestacks and injecting it deep from the sea” (366). This quote from Kolbert shows how Kolbert uses a scientist to attract the audience. Just like Lord’s text, this quote is coming from a high official who has had a lot of experience around environmental studies. Kolbert uses credibility to attract the audience and successfully confront “the rhetorical challenge of sustainability”.
Also, the animals grow only in clean tropical water that 's between 68°F and 82°F. A change in the water 's temperature or chemical makeup can be deadly for polyps. Experts say that putting a stop to things that are harming coral reefs is a must. But they are also looking into ways to regrow them. Recently, scientists started raising coral polyps.
In today’s world there are many contributing factors to the pollution of the oceans. Many people may think that because they don’t live close to the ocean that they are not the root cause for the pollution that is occurring. Well they would be wrong in every sense of the word. It doesn’t matter where you live whether it be close or far from the ocean you are having an impact on the ocean. A few weeks back I partook in a service learning project at the Sodalis Nature Park and I was taught all about how one invasive plant species can have a negative impact on the ocean.
If they do not follow the rules, they will have their permit pulled away from the FWC to run their business. FWC has really cracked down on these rules and helped manatees tremendously. This is important not only to save these creatures, but our economy here in Crystal River. Even locals can avoid harassing the manatees, By slowing down and observing the manatees without harassing them. When
Whether there is any significant impact of the existence of sharks is a non-debatable issue, but two diverse views concerning the issue On the one hand, Sharks are portrayed as vicious creatures who are a threat to human existence, and on the other, what is often overlooked is the vital impact of sharks on our society and the food chain, how it preserves our ecosystem to where it stands today. Consequently, due to corrupt human nature, the population of sharks is declining substantially. This essay will exhibit many arguments, including: the social ,economical, political and environmental impacts of sharks, while favouring their existence and display how corrupt human nature is simply disposing of this valuable creature. Sharks have many positive
For example: 1) The Magnuson‐Stevens Act (Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act) that deals with the conservation and management of sustainable fisheries in the US waters as well as promotes US commercial fisheries. 2) Presidential Task Force and its recommendations to prevent IUU Fishing, which is a historic step to
The negative effects, it 's bad for the environment and the animals that live or nest there such as sea turtles and crabs. So I think seawalls are necessary in some places so we can hold off erosion and not have to do beach nourishment. But it 's bad for the environment and the sea creatures so we should keep the number of hard structures to as little as
In “Is Fish Farming Safe?” Terry McCarthy states that the current way of fish farming is ruining our water and eco systems by dumping waste. Elizabeth Kolber essay “The Acid Sea” discusses about the carbon dioxide we are pumping into our oceans, and Susan Casey “Our Oceans Are Turning into Plastics… are you?” focuses on how we are dumping plastics and garbage into our oceans. While despite these author’s talking about different topic they all agree about future ramifications of having wastes in our oceans and waters.
“One must be a sea, to receive a polluted stream without becoming impure”. Air wildlife are also greatly affected by plastic pollution. Seabirds area a common example. Seabirds often mistake trash floating on the ocean’s surface as prey. Or often their food sources had already ingested plastic debris, thus transferring the plastic from prey to
However, according to SeaWorld 's new chairman and CEO Joel Manby, he believes that “uncontrollable exposure to pollution, ocean debris and life-threatening pathogens in ocean waters are just a few of the factors that make sea pens an unhealthy living environment for any of our animals.” The orcas are use to a clean environment and the ocean is everything but that. Their immune systems would hardly be capable of enduring those threats. For instance, as claimed by LaTimes.com, Dold, SeaWorld 's chief veterinarian believes “pens can also expose whales to viruses passed on through other fish in the pens or toxins and oil spills that wash in with the tide.” Even though it would be nice to allow these creatures to once again live in the ocean at a certain extent , that kind of setting would hurt their well
Thomas Morton’s article, Oh This Is Great, wants people to have a greater understanding on what’s going in our world. People need to understand that our ocean is a pile of trash. As Morton stated, “The ocean is downstream of everything.” Considering the fact, people are thoughtlessly tossing their trash onto the floor, are sadly ending up into the ocean- where our food chain is greatly affected by.
Sally Ride influenced the 1980’s immensely. Ride became a professor of physics at the University of California there; she studied, worked extremely hard, and built her confidence, to accommodate the environmental surroundings. She was the first women in space; it took time, dedication, and confidence to be the first women. This influenced many others to go up into space and make discoveries. Furthermore, she used a remote manipulator arm launch, a satellite designed to study there suns effect on earths weather.
In the source used, Thomas Hayden’s (2002) article, “Trashing the Oceans”, the ethos argument is persuasive in its wording because of its easy to understand, inviting nature and relatability, while still informing the reader about the disturbing information coming from the accounts of a research vessel that goes by the title Alguita, a vessel that has been studying the oceanic garbage since 1999. This article has already displayed all three arguments of logos, pathos and ethos in just a few paragraphs. The compared article, written by John H. Tibbetts “Managing Marine Plastic Pollution” does not do this. An example of the ethos attributes of “Trashing the Oceans” is the introduction pertaining to Taco bell.
Blackfish is a documentary that came out July 19, 2013. This documentary describes the conditions of orca whales at seaworld. It was filmed in a point of view that shows that seaworld is harmful to orca whales and that the whales suffer from being kept in captivity. After this came out, Seaworld wrote an article saying that Blackfish is propaganda, not an actual documentary. Seaworld claims that they are beneficial for orca whales because they perform research that benefit whales in the wild.
