Kimberly, One year ago today the North Dakota State Troopers, Morton County Sheriff's Department, and National Guard suited up in riot gear and cleared thousands of water protectors from the Oceti Sakowin camp at Standing Rock. Sovereign native nations have been under attack since before the United States' founding. It is long past the time where we need to recognize these attacks and stand united in helping those who have been hurt so much across the course of history. The Dakota Access Pipeline protests gave me hope that more of us are willing to fight back than ever before.
The North Dakota Oil rush can be both good and bad for the state. First of all, people are coming in to work for companies to support their families. Since some people don 't make a lot of money, they travel to North Dakota to make the money that is needed. Second of all, the population has boomed since the Oil rush. This can be both good and bad for the state.
Americans dependence on domestic and foreign oil correlated to oil being limited and not always, readily available. Although, there were many alternative solutions to petroleum, for instance nuclear plants and coals, the results were not favorable. The environmental and energy crisis of the 1970s still constrained the United States today with more smog, landfill waste, and gas prices risen and
The energy crisis began after OPEC seized oil production because of the, “anger at the United States for aiding Israel.” (Farber, 22) This caused a mass panic amongst Americans and resulted in long waits to get gas and constant fuel outages. Carter was extremely adamant that Americans reduce their consumption of fuel in order to reduce the extent of the energy crisis, at one point suggesting putting heavy penalizing taxes on non-fuel efficient vehicles. Political journalist Nicholas Lemann recalled, “[The energy crisis was] the automotive equivalent to the Depression’s bank runs.”
Cars are the most important products in the modern lifestyle. Whether it’s going to work, school, the mall, or even your friend’s house, it’s likely that you will be using a car to get there. As you all know, cars can have drastically different prices and look drastically different as well. I’m sure everyone here has a car, and I’m also sure everyone here will be buying another car in the future. Whether you want a car that can fit a large amount of people, or a sports car that can go extremely fast, an electric car will almost always be the best option for you.
The disaster caused much damage such as wiping out ocean life as result Exxon paid billions in fines for the crisis.
Since the United States will be getting their own natural gases from fracking then that means the “United States will not have to buy and import natural gases from other countries, saving money in the process” (Rogowsky) therefore the “United States will become more independent and not rely on other countries” (Rogowsky). This is important because the people of the United States will also be able to save money because “the gas prices for cars will go down significantly as the gas supply goes up” (Rogowsky). Not only this, but the prices for medicine are sure to decline as well, “natural gases are an important chemical feedstock in some packaging medicine” (Rogowsky). With fracking, the medicine prices will take a dive also resulting in the American people saving money. With the increase of fracking there will be a higher supply of gas and medicine, which makes the prices decrease and people will save
Preventing Minimum Wage Speech Overview: General Goal: To persuade - to create, change or reinforce attitudes, values, beliefs and/or behaviors. Specific Goal: By the end of this speech my audience will believe that minimum wage in America should be raised all around the nation. Introduction: (This is where you start talking) Attention Grabber: How many of us have worked a job that pays $7.25 - $7.50 a hour?
What do you do when you run out of gas in your car? Will you stop using your car? or Will you go to the gas station and refill your tank? Natural gas that has been pumped up from fracking nearly fuels 40% of the U.S. energy consumption. Without fracking, the price of gas would have a drastic raise from $3.25 to $11 per gallon, so consumers would have to pay about $130 or more to refill their gas tank.
The United States of America is a country known for freedom. It is so widely valued that the Constitution lays out the different rules and laws that gives freedom to its citizens. This Constitution protects the right of each citizen; one of the most popularly known amendments is the one stating the protection of “life, liberty and property.” So, if America is a country based off freedom and these rights, why is it that the native culture to this country are the ones whose “life, liberty, and property” are taken away the most? Most can guess which culture is in the previous question: Native Americans. In cruel and forceful ways, Native American’s have moved from their land for generations. Most people know how all of this started when the founders
“Why Electric Cars are the Future” Introduction Attention Getter: It was Sunday at park, two college students were discussing about cars. One of them said that imagine about two decades ago, it appeared there was no effective alternative to the gasoline and oil, but now there is a better, cleaner, and more effective substitute to them: electricity. Although electric engines are not so widespread, more and more people consider changing their gasoline-fueled vehicles to electric cars. Then I discovered why electric cars are the future.
