. .] it’s an indispensable part of the best of worlds, a necessary ingredient; if Columbus had not caught, on an American island, this sickness which attacks the source of generation and sometimes prevents nature entirely--which thus strikes at and defeats the greatest end of Nature herself--we should have neither chocolate nor cochineal” (Voltaire. Pangloss to Candide 361). Following the “knowledgeable” Pangloss, Candide then slowly started to truly see the real world at the cost of killing many people in the name of the “best of worlds”.
Since tigers are at the top, if they are eliminated from the chain everything would be mayhem. The herbivores would multiply much too quickly to keep track of and eat all of the vegetation down all the way to the roots. With the vegetation gone the herbivores would die due to the food source being gone and then the animals that use the vegetation as shelter would die off because their homes are gone. The soil as result of the vegetation being gone would start the process of soil erosion and the soil would be bad because the nutrient rich topsoil would blow off so it would be unusable land. This would ruin all of that area for wildlife for the foreseeable future.
Juana basically just tries to throw the pearl away and Kino doesn 't allow it and has to slit some throats but not Juana’s because they were being attacked. He promises to sell the pearl that has caused them so many troubles. So many bad things happened to him and they even burnt his house
Everyone wants something in their life. A new phone, new clothes, jewelry, toys, and other luxuries. But did you realize the price tag does not show the full price? “Saving The Worlds”, and “The Race to Save the Elephants” by Mary Kate Frank believes that because of our negligence and cupidity, animals and environments are the ones actually paying for your decisions. Mankind are incessantly ruining their lives by obliterating their habitats, overfishing, poaching, producing pollution, and other nefarious methods.
The Everglades used to be a beautiful place that was home to many rare endangered species. But thanks to construction, agbusinesses, and draining the Everglades we have destroyed this one beautiful piece of land. To lead off, a mass increase in construction around and in the Everglades lead to a total destruction of it. In “ The Florida Everglades ” it says “ The construction cuts off the flow of fresh water to the Everglades.” Without the flow of fresh water to the Everglades fish wouldn 't be able to live, the Florida Bay wouldn’t be able to survive and we wouldn’t have clean water to drink. On page 113 paragraph 1 it states “ These wetlands were once home to many rare, endangered, and exotic species.
This ideal of having savagery take over because a war has devastated the earth is unrealistic. One who says this only proves my point of humans blocking out the bad in the world. All around us, everyday, new terrorists groups try to gain power over certain countries. As scary as the thought may be, what’s to say that they wouldn’t try to take over America next? So the idea of having a world that has been ravished by war and people are left to natural instincts really is that big of an idea, more of a unprevented future.
the earth, with its rivers and rich flora and fauna, is an intricate web of life. Development in the western pattern causes annihilation of this living organism ecology; it destroys our resources rapidly. As such our chief concern at present is to think of alternative means of development which should be eco-friendly by "technology with a human face and that will link development with culture or, in other words will boost the cultural ecology. As have been dilated in several of the world literatures, the nature/ technology /environment is feminine. The destruction of Nature is ravish/oppression of the Mother, that is, the rearer of the human
Over the course of humanity, humans have causing conflict with one another. Blood is spilt on the battlefields everyday due to war. War however, can’t just happen on its own; one must have the power to cause it, which eventually will show that humanity is evil when given too much power. Humans, in general, when given the opportunity to have power, will make poor choices and result in becoming tyrants or dictators. For example, when King George III was appointed and given high power to rule over the thirteen colonies, he misused his power by imposing high taxes and tariffs on imported products without consulting his people.
Having this heritage in our own back yard, I am deeply concerned and am of the opinion that it is my profound duty to help endangered wildlife in Sabah. Firstly, wild life is facing extinction because of rampant deforestation. Numerous habitats are destroyed daily causing wildlife to be orphaned or killed. In states like Tawau, Sandakan and Lahad Datu, the forest is cleared to make way for oil palm cultivation. I agree that the economic reserves of the country need to be doubled, but, not by abusing the land indiscriminately.
Avatar Thesis In the movie Avatar the main theme of it was about the military going in and disrupting the land of the native Omaticaya people because they found precious unobtanium which was extremely rare and expensive. They values the money they would get from the unobtanium rather the lives of the Na’vi. They sent in scientist in to befriend the Omaticaya people and give them schools, roads, and education, but they wanted to be left alone. Also the scientist were sent in to essentially move the Omaticaya people so that they could “peacefully” tear down all of their civilization if they dint comply with the military people and retrieve this unobtanium they so badly needed because of the worth of it. From seeing this movie you might think that they are referring to what happened with Andrew Jackson and the state government back in the early 1830’s.
In the book, Quinn makes a reference to aerodynamics and how the scientists made machines they thought could fly and jumped off a cliff thinking they were flying but were really crashing to their doom. Ishmael “The harder and more efficient they pedal, the worse the conditions become.” (Quinn, 109) He relates this idea to the inventions that are supposedly ‘helping’ society but in reality they are causing more problems for us. Even though some of these technologies have helped us solve problems, it has equally developed more problems by removing the environment from its natural
People got beaten up to a pulp and sometimes had to go to the hospital. It was said that the Navy would beat Chicanos up and strip the naked then burn their clothes in the middle of street which too me is going to an extreme. The Zoot Suit was more of iconic fashion trend for Chicanos during 1943. Due to the Zoot Suit riots the Zoot Suit was pulled off of store shelves and were made illegal to wear in Los Angeles. In my opinion, if you have to ban a certain type of clothing because people are committing crimes with it then obviously your government isn’t doing something right and needs to be replaced immediately.
The negotiating didn’t work out and the English ended up burning the village and killing a Pequot. The Pequot were ready to retaliate. In retaliation for what the English did, the Pequot had laid siege to Saybrook Fort on September 1636-mid April 1637. The Pequot tribe had attacked soldiers and work parties who were farther away from the fort. They had also ended up destroying English cornfields and cattle, and burning down warehouses that were used to store goods.
There will be nomore left on the planet. They all will disappear. This is a extreme conflict that scientist and the world is trying to avoid. The third reason i think Gmos are harmful because it can cause enviromental risks. This could also bother our health too because we eat lots of veggies out of the field.
The illegal hunting and trade of primate meat is a large contributing factor to the decline of primate species in the tropics. This, in addition to habitat loss and fragmentation, disease, and the pet trade, is putting many primate species at high risk of extinction. Poverty, population growth, construction of roads, emergence of regional and international markets, and new hunting technology are triggering the increased hunting pressure on forest mammals. Primate species are especially vulnerable to increased hunting pressure because of their slower reproductive cycles. The decline of primate species must be stopped to avoid their extinction and the potential consequences that this could have for tropical forests.
