The Sierra Club is currently one of, if not the biggest, environmental organizations. If it were to suddenly collapse, then America’s wildlife could be in danger. Without any other organizations with the power the Sierra Club has accumulated, the government would take federal action to possibly damage certain national parks. For example, in 1920, the government had plans to flood and dam the Grand Canyon. However, the Sierra Club protested this plan strongly, and ultimately prevented it from happening.
My pathos statement many farmers and people will be affected by the loss of water for the project.Pathos is an appeal to emotion,and is a way of convincing an audience of an argument by creating an emotional response.”Friant Water Users Authority decided that settling out of court and giving up some water for salmon was smarter than taking their chances with a federal judge”(2).They want to help the salmon thrive in nature when the opposing side wants to hurt the salmon in order to finish the project.The restoration project is breaking farmers hearts because they want the government to give them the money to make more crops instead of the government using the money for the project.”We need a stimulus water package.We’re going to have dire poverty”(2).If this keeps happening a lot of people will be in poverty from lack of water.We need water in order to survive from dehydration.My side is more superior because the opposing
No one wanted to touch the book because they feared being sued by the Meat Industry. Finally Doubleday said they would publish it but they had to verify the extreme conditions Sinclair had written about. Even President Theodore Roosevelt, after reading the newspaper version of The Jungle, contacted Doubleday and chastised them for considering publishing such a thing. It wasn 't long after though that Roosevelt conducted his own investigation and found everything Sinclair had written about was steeped in truth. Not long after Congress passed the first laws regulating the industry in hopes it could protect people from unsanitary handling of food.
His writings were what pulled people into action. "Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away; and if they could, they would still be destroyed -- chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hides, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones... Through all the wonderful, eventful centuries since Christ 's time -- and long before that -- God has cared for these trees... but he cannot save them from fools -- only Uncle Sam can do that." (John Muir, American Forests.)
There is always another side to the story. Federalist, these people supported the constitution. Though they knew that the constitution wasn’t perfection yet, According to document 3 George Washington state 's ”We have errors to correct… would to God, that wise measures may be taken in time to avert the consequences we have but too much reason to apprehend”. George was sure that the constitution wasn’t perfect but that in this time of need they need something like it. They need a strong government, to win over the people who won’t support over fear of loss of natural laws, like mentioned in document 1 “Let us look and behold the distress which prevail in every part of our country… View these things, fellow citizens, and then say we do not require a new, a protection, and efficient federal government if you can” this document was quoted from a newspaper in Massachusetts.
The Boycott of Namibian seafood is also a potent weapon in the fight to end the slaughter of Cape fur seals in Namibia. In the 1980’s, these two strategies were implemented in Europe. Today, the United States, the largest importer of Canadian seafood, is involved in the Canadian seafood boycott. Harpseals.org takes the point of view that all efforts to end this slaughter are valuable, but this strategy is their most effective tool to save the seals. Since late 2004, Harpseals.org has been promoting the boycott of Canadian seafood in order to pressure the Canadian fishing industry to stop supporting the massacre of seals.
While Franklin believed that God created earth and humans but didn’t interfere which is called Deism. While these views on mankind were different they would agree that man was created clean but society in a way ruined them. Thoreau’s writing style was considered abstract at the time, people had said that
“Jackson argued that the United States policy of attempting to assimilate the tribes into white society had failed and the Native Americans’ way of life would eventually be destroyed.” (thehermitage.com) Thousands of Native Americans died due to his decisions; he seemed to show his total disregard for their culture and rights. This displays his autocratic tendencies, but his crisis involving South Carolina does as well. When the Tariff of 1832 began to harm South Carolina but aid the North, our state threatened to leave the union in order to protect our economy. However, Jackson was going to use force to make us follow his laws; he wasn 't willing to bend at all. That is when Calhoun, his former vice president at the time, began questioning him but instead of aiding South Carolina, he argued that it was for the good of the union.
It was because of this Act the Food and Drug Administration was created. However, before the Food and Drug Act of 1906 was passed, there was no such thing as regulating how food was produced. While doctors and majority of the public wished for food regulations many corporations as well as the National Association of State Dairy and Food opposed food safety due to the fact that it would ruin business for them. It wasn’t until numerous of people finally spoke out about the horrendous secrets of food production that congress finally took action. Some of many who helped speak out against the food processing business were the Muckrakers.
The ratification of the 18th amendment banned the manufacturing, transportation, and sale of alcohol. This amendment was passed because people deemed that alcohol was a “destructive force in families and marriages” (History.com Staff). Also, factory owners supported prohibition because it made their workers more efficient and capable of working longer hours. In 1917, the United States entered WWI. President Woodrow Wilson enacted a temporary prohibition ban to save grain for producing food.
Thus, Muir did not agree with the idea that a dam for San Francisco needed to be in a national park. Muir and the Sierra Club led a battle against Mr. Pinchot, Mr. Phelan and others who believed it was appropriate to construct the O 'Shaughnessy Dam. Muir argued that his opponents were not looking at the bigger picture. He believe that allowing the construction of the dam would deny the American public the ability to enjoy the Hetch Hetchy Valley like their
As a result, the hungry Iñupiaq people in Barrow decided to pay no mind to the law and protested. This tragic event proves that the law cannot jeopardize the Iñupiaq people’s way of living. This event showed leadership by taking pride in the culture, working together, and by making the citizens of Barrow voices heard. The warden first arrested John Nusunginya for hunting ducks off- season and shortly after Tommy Pikok Sr. Pikok was outraged due to the fact that he could not provide food for his family and therefore, he kept rebelling. He exclaimed to the warden that they should go ahead and arrest him, however, if he comes back from jail and his children and wife are skinny, he will hunt the warden down and feed him to Tommy’s dogs.
In his papers, member of the commission Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. accounted that “McMillan wanted a ‘comprehensive scheme’ but feared that ‘it might be turned down by the other Committees if it were made too complete and pushed too far.’” In 1910, the McMillan Plan received de facto endorsement from the White House when President Taft created the permanent Fine Arts Commission, a body that helped to execute the McMillan Plan over the next few decades. Although the House of Representatives, led by Speaker Joseph Cannon of Illinois, initially resisted funding the implementation of the McMillan Commission’s vision for the Mall, they took action on what they liked in the plan, such as the construction of the newly proposed Union Station to replace the old railway depot on the edge of
The reasons and evidence that President Carter use to support his argument include the decrease in inflation rates and the number of new jobs created .In his comments, Reagan says Carter has misrepresented the evidence because he has not provided context on government spending in California . Carter fails
When the gold rush began the government started treaty negotiations intended to remove Wallowa country from the reservation but the Nez Perce refused to sign. Violence ensued and eventually the government took the land. The Nez Perce were banished from the area. There are many monuments and the lake and surrounding towns in honor of the tribe. The nearest town was named Joseph in honor of Chief Joseph, the leader of the tribe.
