Theodore Roosevelt: “Conservation As A National Duty” introduces the problem of the lack of natural resources, and how are we going to fix the problem for future generations? Roosevelt makes connection between conservation and progress,patriotism,and morality of the American people by putting different people since or point of view of other people and himself to not waste our natural resources. He uses other people 's point of view by asking and using other people 's feeling about the crisis that they are in the middle of right now. (Stated in paragraph 3) “so vital is this question,that for the first time in our history the chief executive officers of the states separately,and of the states together forming the nations,have have met to consider.
The Declaration of Independence states, “--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”. In the article Why Government, it states, “But Locke also believed that governments should protect people’s natural rights.” Both of these quotes show that the purpose for creating government, is so that the protection of the natural rights of the people is ensured. Also, the idea that these fair powers are just what Men (human beings) are receiving and what they should receive from the creation of governments. Both of these quotes combine with each other, because of the pinpointed idea of how the government was created in order to benefit to the natural rights of the people, and to protect these
In 1916 he served as president of the American Association of Geographers and also as Chief Cartographer for the American Peace Commission at the postwar negotiations in 1919 (Corbett, n.d.). He was known as the founder of real man oriented geography (Husain, 2006, p.237-238). Contribution: Dikshit (1999, p. 103) wrote, Jefferson deserves an extraordinary place in the history of American Geography for many contributions to the theoretical structure of geography. The approach of Jefferson insisted that the focus of geography teaching should be man on the earth not the earth on man (Dikshit, 1999, p.103).
He compares his words to "the stars that never change", and that "the great chief of Washington can rely upon with as much certainty as he can upon the return of the sun. " Seattle does this in order to bring emphasis to the natural world and the beloved land that the "White Man" is taking away from their people. Seattle's use of imagery brings attention to the glorious natural features of the land he is defending as well as empowers and amplifies the words he presents. Chief Seattle uses parallels to set a distinct contrast between his people and the English settlers.
Crosby is uses his book Ecological Imperialism to explain the disbursal of disease that came along with the expansion of Old World Europe outside of its mother country. Crosby’s Theory attributes the success of the conquistadors, the first English settlers, and the fur trade with the French to the disease they brought along with them. In other words, the Old World might not have been the spectacular adventurer and settlers they make themselves out to be. Crosby makes the reader question what would have happened if the natives of the New Worlds had the immunity to fight the European diseases? Questions like this are the reason that the first ten chapters of Ecological Imperialism are so important.

Turner believed that life in the frontier shaped the American characteristics, “That coarseness and strength combined with acuteness and inquisitiveness;” (Turner 1136). However, Jack London shows that it is more than a man surroundings that shape the characteristics, that it is the man’s ability and will to learn and adjust to survive in the wilderness. Both authors view the frontier differently, their ideas would build the foundation of important works that shaped American
Imagine the United States, our United States, without Crater Lake Nation Park (OR), Yosemite National Park (CA), Devil’s Tower (WY), The Grand Canyon (AZ), the Muir Woods (CA), and El Morro (NM), to name a few. These national parks and national monuments may not exist if it weren’t for the thoughtfulness, passion, and dedication of Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt and many other likeminded naturalists and conservationists of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. Roosevelt’s contributions to conservation in the United States of America are extensive. There has been no other President in the history of the United States who has done more for the conservation of the country’s public lands and wildlife than “Teddy” Roosevelt.
Within the broader American environmental movement that began in the late 19th century, two main groups emerged, conservationists and preservationists, which had fundamentally different views on how the United States ought to manage the country’s wild lands. Although conservationists like Gifford Pinchot advocated for the sustainable use of natural resources and preservationists like John Muir promoted the protection of national lands from the influence of man, both groups were exclusionary and classist. This class discrimination within American environmentalism continues today and presents an ethical conflict for a movement which promotes itself as working for the common good. The dilemma largely stems from the concept of wilderness which prevents access of what is
2. Theodore Roosevelt was considered to be the “First Modern President because he had a strong- firm personality, and showed aggressive actions towards others. Roosevelt believed that the President had the right to use all power unless they were denied to him. Also, that he has a responsibility to the people, and so challenged himself to avoid notions of limited government and individualism; the government he controlled should maintain as an agent who should give the people what they want. Roosevelt’s presidency opened up creativity of progressive movement, lending the prestige of the White House to welfare legislation, government regulation, and the conservation movement.
Roosevelt was the first president to create national bird reserves. He created 51 national bird reserves, 18 national monuments, and 150 national parks. For example, Roosevelt established the Grand Canyon in 1908 which is in Arizona. Also, some of the national parks that Roosevelt created are Carter Lake, Wind Cave, and Sully’s Hills. Roosevelt created the United States Forest Service because he wanted to protect lands and protect wildlife.
During the “Gilded Age” period of American history, development of the Trans-Mississippi west was crucial to fulfilling the American dream of manifest destiny and creating an identity which was distinctly American. Since the west is often associated with rugged pioneers and frontiersmen, there is an overarching idea of hardy American individualism. However, although these settlers were brave and helped to make America into what it is today, they heavily relied on federal support. It would not have been possible for white Americans to settle the Trans-Mississippi west without the US government removing Native Americans from their lands and placing them on reservations, offering land grants and incentives for people to move out west, and the
