The wilderness is a great home for many different species of animals to inhabit. Such animals include polar bears, caribou, dall sheeps and wolves. It would be such a tragic that such a great habitat would be demolished. The Arctic National Refuge is a magnificent, and quoted, the last great wilderness. It has been mentioned that the wilderness will be consumed by "a web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities".
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
Carter demonstrates his idea that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge shouldn’t be ruin by the exploration of oil industry or any other for-profit runnings. As the president of the nation, Carter describes the scene as “a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife spectacle” when he saw the group of caribou running on the great lands in front of his eyes. To wit, less and less chances people have to see such a view personally in a wild environment if they are transformed into a factory or a industry. Moreover, as the author mentions in the fourth paragraph: “Such proposed developments would forever destroy…that depend on this northernmost terrestrial ecosystem.” The author well explains by his sentences that those animals are driven out of their original
In the wake of the prevalence of industrialize among the United States, the former U.S president Jimmy Carter proposed that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is not supposed to be developed for industry in his foreword to Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: Seasons of Life and land, A photographic Journey by Subhankar Banerjee. Jimmy Carter effectively builds his argument by logically utilizing pathos, logos, and ethos to plead with the audiences to take his side. Jimmy Carter employs pathos to appeal to the audience’s emotion for supporting his argument. In paragraph seven, Jimmy Carter takes a stand on the position of American citizens to consider the issue of industry developing, and he suggests that “instead of tearing open the heart of our greatest refuge, we should use our resource more wisely.” To offer a proposal, Jimmy Carter as a citizen who
While others want to use it in a way that makes it enjoyable to them, which might be using national parks like Yellow Stone for snowmobiling. I have been to Yellowstone and while I am not a huge outdoors person being at the top and looking down it is an amazing view, and I cannot imagine see that ruined. The debate about national parks is a trivial one because there is no right or wrong answer to the debate. Do you preserve it so it will always be in it natural beautiful state, or do you use it and enjoy it now for the activities you want to and not worry about what negative affects it will cause? How do you decide which side is right and which is wrong?
In Emma Marris’ essay, “Handle with Care”, Marris argues the responsibility humans have in nature intervention when it comes to species near extinction. Marris explains that through human intervention many species can be saved from disappearance brought on by man-made issues. She uses the White-Bark pine throughout the article to show an example where human intervention has worked, helping strengthen her argument by giving the readers a representation of human intervention done the right way. By presenting supporting evidence, showing both sides of the argument, and playing to the reader’s emotions Marris successfully convinces her audience that human intervention to save species on the brink of extinction is a positive thing. Marris gives multiple scenarios of evidence where human
In Thomas Paine’s piece, “The American Crisis”, he uses stylistic and persuasive elements to inspire the soldiers of the American revolution. Tone has a very key role in Paine’s attempt to persuade the men. Words such as passionate, direct, and self-assured can be used to describe the piece. Right from the start Paine is direct with what the tone of the piece will be; “these are the times that try men’s souls.” (98). He believes that the revolution will not be easy, but that it will be worth it in the end.
Paine then challenges the men’s bravery and patriotism to their country by stating the line “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country.” This statement successfully peaks the men 's interest in the passage, and takes a jab at the readers manliness and willingness to protect his own country in time of need. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.” This line, similar to the first line, is stating that this evil that was the British government is not going to be an easy opponent to defeat. This also puts the readers in a position of readying themselves, similar
"I have watched the face of many a newly wolfless mountain, and seen the south-facing slope wrinkle with a maze of new deer trails. I have seen every edible bush and seedling browsed, first to anaemic desuetude, and then to death" (Leopold 2). This quote from "Thinking Like a Moutain" supports the fact that author Aldo Leopold believes that an ecosystem is nothing without its plants and animals. Similarly, in the documentary Cold Warriors: Wolves vs. Buffalo, director Jeff Turner explains that wolves and buffalo in Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP) work against each other to create a beautiful ecosystem, and healthy place for plants and animals to live. For this, and other reasons, Aldo Leopold would feel conflicted about what is happening in WBNP.
This being said it's apparent that Kennedy wishes to make peace with threatening nations. His use of the metaphor “the chains of poverty” signifies that poverty is solvable if nations work together. To inspire the people to make the world a safer place, Kennedy uses emotion-arousing words. For example, he reminds Americans of their forefathers and appeals to their patriotism to enhance their way of thinking to match this generation. In fact; he used terms like ‘liberty’ and ‘freedom’.
His hyperboles exaggerate the ways of nature and create a sense of emphasis on his article. Next, Carter uses ethos to explain his role in keeping the Wildlife Refuge. Carter states “I signed the wildlife, National Interest Lands Conservation Act.” By showing us that he made a difference in wildlife proves his credibility and that he truly cares
