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.
My Vision For America All of us are deeply concerned about the future that is ahead, within America. As a country we do need a renewal of American values. What would the ideal United States of America look like to you? What are your ideas for this struggling nation? My vision for America could help us leave the country great for our children, and it could make America the greatest nation on Earth.
The United States, as a leading example for the word, must start taking action to cut its use of fossil fuels. I believe that the effects of global warming are very similar to the effects that tobacco has on a person, you can’t see it but it slowly builds up to destroy you. In other words, if we don’t take action right now to cut carbon dioxide and prevent the increasing greenhouse effect, the ocean levels will slowly rise as glaciers melt and retreat, imperiling the habitat of many endangered species. Since global warming is a proven phenomena, caused by an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, it’s important for the government to regulate the carbon dioxide emissions of factories and the car manufacturers by enforcing laws and regulations.
DeekshithKumar Thadishetti Professor mankerian LS 690 July 31 2015 Climate change is one of the global issue that requires multiperspective approach. One of the key cause of climate change is air pollution. Air pollution occurs as a result of release of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. There are two key sources of air pollution that should be targeted if the air pollution is to be reduced. The first source is the industrial stationay sources, which include electric power facilities.
This chapter also describes the causes and consequences of Global Warming. This is important to me because our life depends on how we act toward this problem. Every person living on Earth should be informed of what is happening and what will happen if we continue to live like this for the upcoming
This article has very effective means of making the reader understand what the main focus of the Authors was. One of the reasons that this editorial is effective is for the reason that Hochman and Metzger both inform the reader that the future generations of the planet are endangered if people don’t start taking steps to prevent what can be stopped now and that is global warming. The writers also bring up the fact that the solution to the problem is already discovered and how it can be implemented into our daily lives. The Authors say: “The cure for global warming is well-known.
Julie Cruikshank is a professor at the University of British Columbia in the Department of Anthropology. In her department description she is said to focus her studies on “theoretical trends linked to oral tradition studies” (Columbia, 2017). I could not think of a better topic to write about when it comes to environmental anthropology like climate change. I have noticed that the public perception of climate change in relation to Glacier movement is based on the notion that climate change is a “new” concept. However, Cruikshank displays clear evidence that the idea of climate change has been around far before empirical evidence could create tools to identify the changes that lead to climate change.
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.
Recent climate change has never been a topic without global controversy. With the enormous impact stirred up, from economic loss to environmental disturbance. The ballooning attention to the issue has also triggered fierce discussion of the effectiveness of individual effort in the remedy of the gradually deteriorating environment. In the light of over-exploit natural resources by developers, there are a lot of people accusing the big businesses as the culprit and the biggest liability bearer.
The poll showed 63% of people in the United States believe in climate change and 72% of them believe there should be funding for renewable energy research (Yale). The Union of Concerned Scientists article “The Hidden Cost of Fossil Fuels” explains how fossil fuels impact our lives by destroying the environment, economy, and human health. The increase of temperature from the trapped greenhouse gases from fossil fuels will cause more extreme weather events within the next century (Fossil). Supporting article summary Prove solution The Union of Concerned Scientists article “Benefits of Renewable Energy Use” explains how renewable energy positively affects the environment, economy, and human health.
There are many things that people are doing to help reverse the effects that have started to happen and if everyone can help pitch in it is possible to help with the problem. Dr. David Robinson, a professor at Rutgers University, gave me some insight about what anyone can do to help with the issue of climate change, "In a nutshell, we can all "attack" the problem by reducing our consumption of fossil fuels. This includes using cleaner energy sources and simply using less energy. For individuals/families this can mean lowering the thermostat, driving more fuel efficient vehicles, installing solar panels on a home, beefing up insulation on a home, etc. It also means being an advocate for the environment.
As the world’s population grows, and industries continue to expand, the demand for energy will only increase. The accumulation of gases and waste from these carbon-based nonrenewable resources, particularly coal, has led to the greenhouse effect and other adverse consequences, to the point where the world’s
Ecological footprint reaction: It is disturbing to believe that if every single person on planet Earth were like me, it would take 4.7 planets to sustain the entire population. I had no clue that my actions as an individual person had such a huge impact on the environmental cycle of Earth. According to my ecological footprint, I take up a little over 20 acres of Earth’s natural land resources. I can’t help but feel quite selfish as I might be taking away resources from other people who don’t have access to life sustaining necessities.
Even if the producing country is using renewable energy, there are certain renewable energy that emits low amounts of greenhouse gases. Hence, this suggestion is a risk that the Morningsidea’s government will have to think about carefully before making a final
For sheer audacity, nothing beats Kennedy's speech to “...land a man on the moon and bring him safely back to the earth.” He could have said, “We will make the biggest pizza pie the world has ever seen and have every American eat a slice with the Soviet Union watching on live TV,” but that wouldn't have fired up quite the same fires of passion and imagination, or unleashed the tremendous wave of innovation the moonshot did. Looking back, the amazing thing is not accomplishing the safe return a moon landing, but that the nation allowed President Kennedy to make such a commitment. Today a U.S. President must fight with everything he's got, to do much less ambitious things than a moon shot —gun laws and health care. When he gave the “We choose to go to The moon” speech Kennedy said this, “We choose to go to the Moon! ...
