People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
The essay “The Damnation of Canyon,” by Edward Abbey, channels the emotional impact that the damming of a canyon river can have on a person. By telling this story the author utilizes many different rhetorical strategies that include personification, visual imagery, and first-person narration, all to help convey his point on why the commercialization and industrialism of nature should be avoided and stopped. He not only points out the wrong in the situation, but Abbey also gives a solution to the problem to better the canyon for all people. He tells of how many of the environmental pollution, habitat loss, and commercialization could be fixed if people stopped trying to make the canyon better for some people, the rich, and just let it be enjoyed by those who want to see its natural beauty. The fastest solution to this problem is to get rid of the damn and let the river run its course.
Whoever says science states facts isn’t saying the truth because science is always evolving and making new discoveries. Climate change is going to be a big concern, it’s going to cause a mass change in agriculture, the rising heat will affect farmers and how they grow crops. The burning toxic chemicals cannot lead to a positive outcome as well, it may rise health problems and create different types of dieses that’ll affect mankind. Science has its predictions, but how solid can these predictions be? “The Myth of ‘Settled Science.’” is an article written by Charles Krauthammer that addresses a different point of view on global warming.
Many believe that this is the causation of many earthquakes that have occurred in the last years. Water contaminations are a possible risk of fracking. With all the chemicals used for oil fracking, it could cause harm the human body. Although it provides many jobs and gives us oil and natural gas, there are many factors of fracking that has harmed the environment. Oil fracking, also known as hydraulic fracking or hydrofracking, has been used for roughly 65 years to get natural gas.
What would you say is wrong with Earth? For example maybe it’s global warming, homelessness, unemployment, species going extinct, resources running out or maybe you would say that it’s pollution. Pollution not only affects humans, but also plant, animals, and the environment. Pollution is a huge problem that is both continually becoming worse and is hard to fix. Humans have been creating problems for as long as they have been around and they are still creating them like the “Dust Bowl” of 1935 or the recent smog in Delhi, but all problems have a solution.
Because humanity will run out of resources, there will be economic issues, and there will be serious contamination to the environment. Population control needs to be implemented into countries by governments. The first reason the world needs
Wildfires can destroy entire habitats of plants and wipe out life over miles of land. Once these fires clear large areas of vegetation the loss of plants can heighten the risk of significant erosion and landslides. In sudden rainfall these cleared areas become extremely dangerous and some observers have even reported soil “glassification,” where the silica in the soils become melted and fused, forming an impermeable layer in the soil. This impermeable layer can make it very difficult for future plants to grow back and for animals to re-inhabit the area. Although many don’t think of a benefit to wildfires in the biosphere, there are some positive outcomes of wildfires.
The film, Last Stop at the Oasis, discusses some major problems effecting climate change today. These difficulties bring real challenges to the lives of many. I think climate change will only worsen the issues that were discussed in the film. The drought in California, unless there is a chance to reverse the damage that has already been done will continue to suffer. They might have rainy years, but overall they cannot bring back all the water that has been already used up.
The concept of climate change may be one of the greatest threats to our modern day life and the future of our planet. Climate singlehandedly is able to impact natural resources, vegetation, and human impacts on an area which and effectively destroy the functionality of an ecosystem. Many climate change deniers use the formal definition of climate to support the idea that climate change and global warming does not exist - they believe that climate is simply the natural changes in weather over time. However, the change we have been witnessing over the past decade is anything but naturally occurring. There is an overwhelming consensus in the scientific community of its existence and us as a species can no longer deny it while sweeping it under
Another reason is the that the government isn’t trustworthy in what they say about Climate Change, meaning what they say about Climate Change is wrong, and we should change our policy on Climate Change. To show the government is heading in the wrong direction we must make sure that we all know that Climate Change is caused by human activities. An article states, “Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree that human activity and reliance on fossil fuels is warming our planet. And whether you ‘believe’ the science or not, we will be all be suffering the impacts of climate change, even more so if Trump refuses to act during his presidency” (Schleeter, “3 Things Scott Pruitt Has Actually Said About Climate Change”).
