Jimmy Carter, a former US president effectively incorporates logos – facts and evidence, pathos – appealing word choice and emotion, and ethos – credibility to build his persuasive argument. Carter strives to contend that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry. First, throughout the article, there are many situations where Jimmy Carter incorporates facts and examples. For example, he states, “The Arctic Refuge might provide 1 to 2 percent of the oil our country consumes each day.” By using such numbers, Carter forces the reader to evaluate the situation by recognizing the difference between an insignificant financial income and enormous damage to the territory. Furthermore, Carter mentions that “there are few places on earth as wild and fierce as the Arctic Refuge” to prove to the audience that the refuge is distinctive, rare, and does not
Have you ever wondered about the Dakota access pipeline and thought is it good or bad. The Dakota access pipeline is an “Oil pipeline that would run diagonally across Iowa, through 18 counties, from northwest Iowa to southeast Iowa” (Tyler Durden, 2016). Even though I do not support the pipeline, because of damaging reasons, it does help our economy become more desirable. First I do not support this pipeline considering it does not help our environment. Second I do not support this pipeline considering there is a concern about the impacts of the pipeline in our country.
With the specific explanation about the influence of the Alaska National Interest Land Conservation Act, that it “specifically created the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, doubled the size of the former range, and restricted development in areas that are clearly incompatible with oil exploration”, Carter supports his argument that protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is necessary from a professional perspective of the singer of a relative major act by using ethos, and it not only appeals to the audiences by referring his character as the former US president, but also helps the author to raise credibility of his central argument. In conclusion, Jimmy Carter adeptly utilizes pathos, logos, and ethos to strengthen his argument that the industrial development in the Arctic National Wild Refuge should be prohibited in his foreword to Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: Seasons of Life and land, A photographic Journey by Subhankar
Trump has encouraged mainly his supporters to act out vocally and physically which is becoming increasingly concerning. A president is supposed to be a authoritative figure whom stops racism instead of spreading it. However, the president has far lower power than imagined. It is vital that the state intervene in situations like so to prevent such racism by implementing new laws that correspond with the every growing power of social media and advertisements. President Trump is utterly disliked by a huge number of people worldwide, there has also been a petition sign by thirty thousand Irish people voting against his visit to
Former U.S President Jimmy Carter intends to urge throughout the passage that the United States should preserve the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge rather than developing it for industrial and economic purposes. In order to amplify the importance of his argument, the author relates is statement with his own personal experience in the Arctic National Wild Life Refuge ; thus, Jimmy Carter emphasizes the quintessence of the region and his argument. The writer first starts off his argument with some background and basic information about the Arctic Wildlife Refuge, but yet still indirectly implies the high value the environment has. For instance, the author expresses the habitat as ‘America’s last truly great wilderness’ and ‘magnificent
One idea that many support is that we need to stop the flow of illegal immigration. Although many people despise the idea, Donald Trump’s idea to build a wall along the US-Mexico border will be the most effective and is ultimately the best decision. It will drastically decrease the rate of illegal immigrants coming into the United States. Another idea is to increase the immigration quota to 725,000 immigrants per year. The 50,000 extra spots would be set aside for Mexican parents whose kids were born in the US and are therefore US citizens, also known as the “Dreamers.” The parents would have a better chance of being reunited with their children on US soil, and have the chance to legally create a life for themselves in America without having to hide.
They opted not to install the improved fuel efficiencies. This resulted in using over 50,000 more gallons of fuel to accomplish the same job. I would argue application of that regulation caused more environmental damage from increased fuel consumption and a 2 year cleanup operation that could have been accomplished in 1
The article focuses how the U.S. government relies on interdiction at the US-Mexico border to stop the flow of drugs by disrupting the supply, which is thought to decrease availability and demand from the price increases. Although there is multiple layers on the topic, this article focuses strictly border and it's effectiveness. The article also explains how the number of border officers and the financial cost have only increased by the decades without any statistical evidence showing a relationship between border enforcement positively and effectively decreasing the price of illegal drugs or stopping the supply that goes into the
This Nomadic lifestyle was very important to the sustainability of nature around them and the grounds they were on. Nature suffered immensely after European extortion simply because they didn’t take care of it like the natives did. Entire ecosystems and species of plants as well as some animals vanished because of how Europeans treated the land. The ravaging of the land would continue for several years after the Europeans would arrive and all in the name of progress. A classic example of this would be the industrial revolution, settling Europeans (the British) would now be called Americans after participating in a revolution.
The average number of people affected is about 218 million people by natural disasters from tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. Far less human deaths and less destruction as a whole if we didn’t have plate tectonics. Countries would save on the economic losses from very huge earthquakes. Governments typically have to spend large amounts of money to rebuild homes, and reestablish the damaged infrastructure.
Most would say climate change is one of the most critical issues facing the world. Our current president, Barack Obama, has passed some of the best environmental regulations of any president. His decision to reject the Keystone XL pipeline secured his reputation as an environmentalist.The Keystone XL pipeline extension enables oil companies to expand development of Canada’s tar sands, increasing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. But it will be Obama’s successor, the next president, that determines whether we continue to move forward with environmentally friendly policies. For the sake of time, we will only address the five candidates that are still in the presidential
Many people thought Regan or any other U.S. president did not have the ability to end the cold war. Hoekstra states: “Who would have thought in the early eighties that it would be President Reagan, who would sign with us the first nuclear-arms reduction agreement in history?” (Database) Regan was doubted time and time again while he was in office, but no one can deny his great accomplishments of ending Communism. The INF Treaty was one of the biggest achievements Regan attained. Another way Regan took a hands-on approach to ending Communism was eventually ending the Cold War. Many presidents before Regan tried to threaten the Soviets and use force to end the Cold War.
Though the Bush government told the media false information for cover-ups to protect himself in the corrupt acts that were happening during the war. Though we know our “friends” the Saudi Arabians financed the 9/11 attacks for the Iraqis, but because of their rich oil we don’t do nothing against them. Instead we send soldiers to die in country’s that have nothing to do with domestic terror attacks. Ever since Obama has come into office, he has not carried out any actions that he had promised during his campaign. Why didn’t Obama file charges against the Bush government?Bush cost the taxpayers hundreds and billions of dollars and committed war crimes.
