It’s obvious to see that global warming is becoming more and more of an issue. What we don’t know is how much global warming is going to affect us in the future. Some people believe it’s a major issue while other aren’t quite sure if it would even change anything or cause damage. When you look at the statistics though, it’s easy to realize that something, like using renewable resources, must be done to slow down global warming or stop it all together.
Scientists will demonstrate how climate change threatens the existence of the ecosystem and the life of people who depend on agriculture, and “warn that in some countries, climate change is viewed as a potential war issue”, which might transform into a global security issue eventually science will offer you the facts, but we need more than facts to take action. What we decide to do will depend on what we think is right after considering the facts, including what we think of social justice, the way we understand the responsibility of our actions, and our personal views on what you value. These are moral and ethical questions. There are also specific ‘cultural questions’ that need to be addressed when considering the challenges of climate change. Culture relates profoundly to the human dimensions of climate change.
In the early 2000 Al Gore once said, “The planet is in distress and all the attention is on Paris Hilton.” In the same theme, Michael Pollan writes, “Why Bother?”, an article from The New York Times Magazine published in 2008 telling Americans they are too consumed with themselves and maintain a “cheap-energy mind”. And here, in 2016 climate change is seriously happening and the nation is still not addressing the gravity of the issue and why we should indeed bother to make changes. It is time that this nation discerns that climate change is real and it is happening as we speak. Climate change is a threat to each and every one of us and imperative to the survival of life on this planet.
Perhaps less obvious but no less ominous a threat to the environment are the general increase in temperatures worldwide and the resulting climate changes. This phenomenon, known as global warming, could have serious negative effects on humans and all other living things on Earth. Global warming is a complex problem, and governments have had great difficulty deciding how to address it. Some people think that it is the work of the world where nothing we do can ether change it or anything we do will prevent it. While others say that the
Michael Pollan publishes an inspiring article, "Why Bother?" to The New York Magazine in April 20, 2008. Pollan desires to discusses the problems with society and how climate changed can be impacted. With only a few words in one can tell how passionate Pollan is in illustrating his "why bother?" question.
“Why Bother” Michael Pollan’s essay “Why Bother” claims both sides of the argument of why people should take action to change their daily lives that will help the environment or if it is a wasted effort to try to change the things that have been done. Pollan repeatedly asks the reader a specific question throughout the essay: Why bother? Why bother slowing down global warming? Why bother walking to and from to make one’s self carbon footprint better? He asks these questions over and over to make the reader engage and think about the environment.
In the introduction of Michael Pollan’s Why Bother?, he addresses the title’s question , what he calls the “big question” that people concerned with the fate of the planet must face themselves. Through exploration of global warming and environmental crisis, Pollan’s desire is that his readers gain a deeper understanding to what “really is the big question facing us as individuals hoping to do something about climate change.” (Pollan 312) In expressing his goal of writing Why Bother?, Pollan greatly relies on ethos in the introductory to strengthen his argument. By asserting the different aspects, both scientific and personal, of global warming that he has considered and researched.
Alternatively, Whitty relies on a combined movement of people to fight off global warming. “If enough of us pull it off, 22 percent has the power to fuel a movement our leaders will follow.” She also reassures her readers that they need to encourage others as well. “Everyone one of us has a voice, and every one of us is an expert with our own authority to speak.” Rather than leave the vast problem of global warming for a select few, she instead calls out for a collective effort for change.
In recent years, the topic of saving the Earth from Humans has shown itself in many conversations amongst the people of the public. Saving the World will be an issue we must solve in the near future because we are causing a mass extinction for animals, and we are harming and killing humans, but we can resolve it by using technology to reduce global warming and setting aside reserves. The most important thing humans must do in regards to this topic is begin to educate themselves and others on how drastic we must be in regards to it. The first major issue that must be made clear is the great peril animals are in, and what this means for the planet and humans.
A harsh cold reality on climate change is exposed to an unbelieving world in Mike Pearl’s “Phoenix will be almost unlivable by 2050, thanks to climate change” article. Mike pearl is a journalist for Vice Magazine in 2017, a rocky year after the election of presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, in a less than stable political climate. As well as a less than stable living climate. According to Mike Pearl, temperatures in Phoenix, Arizona, may be unlivable by 2050 due to climate change. His article is more than effective, as it’s extremely terrifying as he stresses the importance of what this will mean with pathos, logos and ethos.
Do you often hear things like "we are killing our planet" or "global warming is a massive problem" from your local hippies? I 'm sure you must accept the common misconception that humans have made a huge impact on climate change, well I beg to differ: humans are actually not the main reason to climate change. In this essay I will explain as to why climate change isn 't caused by humans and why you should change your perspective on the topic. By analyzing that Global warming is natural, sea levels have been steadily rising for thousands of years, and CO2 has little impact on global warming, it becomes obvious that climate change was not cause by humans.
Name: Khalid Albaiji Section: SC135 TOPIC: Global Warming GENERAL PURPOSE: To Persuade SPECIFIC PURPOSE: To persuade my audience to aware them about the harmful effects of Global Warming and encourage the audience to help make a difference to stop global warming.
“The only thing that we can do is control what we do next. How we live our lives. What we consume. How we get involved. And how we use our vote to to tell our leaders that we know the truth about climate change”, says Leonardo Dicaprio.
Eating Towards Global Warming Global warming has been a topic of debate for many years now. A more recent argument is that food production is a key contributing factor to the global warming epidemic. In the article “A Carnivore’s Dilemma”, Nicolette Niman provides an insight to the logistics being said in these statements.
Climate change has been a problem in the world since the industrial revolution and has been denied by major corporations and the government for centuries. This is because most non-renewable resources are major industries (i.e. oil, electricity, water, etc.) and the world 's economy profits from these resources. The bulk of corporations prioritize their wealth over the condition of the Earth beneath them. Economic growth is important for the people, yes; it is how we develop as a society, but at what cost? The Earth takes the brunt of society 's success, and denying the inevitable will not stop it from occurring. In fact, denying climate change will only harm society and the Earth further; because by denying it, those who deny climate change are willingly aiding the damage and the danger climate change brings.
