Our natural resources are at risk every time fracking occurs. Fracking needs to be banned since it is hurting our health and that it drains our natural and limited resources required for us to sustain life. Water is an essential to living and it is a need. Without it we would be dead from the dehydration. Fracking in this case can contaminate it to where we cannot drink it and if we do it can lead to death or a trip to the hospital:
Whyman repeatedly implies that Misha’s return to the Aral Sea will result in his premature death due to the hazardous environment, in which produce is considered to be a pollutant and the air is thick with chemicals not fit for human consumption. The devastated wasteland of the Aral Sea is juxtaposed with the metropolitan Moscow, which is rich with opportunities to progress in the world. Healthy goods are often wasted and picked over by the roaming feral dogs and lost children of Russia. It is apparent that the people of Aral are willing to sacrifice their health for their ancestors’ homes, whereas the people of Moscow sacrifice little as the essentials are readily available to them. Throughout Misha’s life, he made necessary sacrifices, such as his childhood that he exchanged for the opportunity to create an income for his motherless family.

Discussion Questions 1. Several factors that contributed to the extinction of trees on the island included the constant chopping of trees to build canoes, to transport statues, to build to plant gardens, and to burn them for fires. The large population of rats that chewed palm nuts, also contributed to the extinction of trees. 2. If I would have arrived on the island before the tree populations were extinct, I would have advised the Easter Islanders to slow down the production of canoes, statues, houses, and gardens.
If you had the choice to start a new life in the same body when you are about to die, would you want to? Well, many people want the possibility to make this choice and is one of the reasons why they are in favor of human cloning. Even though it is tempting to say yes, think about the potential dangerous outcomes and the steps it took to be able to make this choice before supporting the cloning of humans. Human reproductive/therapeutic cloning should be banned everywhere because it disrespects human dignity, there are other alternatives, and most importantly, the low probability of success can lead to endangered potential human life. Human Dignity can be defined as, “...the special elevation of the human species, the special potentiality associated

Mining not only disrupts the ecosystem by getting rid of trees, but also by polluting water supplies when the poisonous chemicals they use to separate waste from the minerals.

We grew up in different parts of the States, Huck being from the Southeast and I the Southwest. The difference in era is also a huge factor. Huck was alive when slavery was still considered an acceptable practice, while in today’s world it is outlawed and opposed by the general population. Because he was around back then, Huck viewed it as more acceptable than how I do. I don’t think it is morally correct in any way, shape, or form.

Through Huck’s Eyes The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain takes place during a time before slavery was abolished; therefore, black people were obviously deemed inferior to white people. Our protagonist Huck, the son of the town drunk, fakes his death to run away from his abusive father and finds his slave friend, Jim, also running away. They decide to team up and run away together, but Huck is internally fighting his urge to do “the right thing” and turn Jim in. During the novel, Huckleberry views Jim as a slave, a friend, and most surprisingly, a father.
One of the major differences between Huck and Jim was their racial traits. In the book, the author have been mentioned a word “nigger” (Twain 102) several times to show racial discrimination going on during the period. When Huck was talking about Solomon in the bible, Jim had a bad reputation on him as criticizing his action as a fool for instructing to split baby into half (one of stories in Bible). While they were having argument Huck self talks to himself, “you can’t learn a nigger to argue” (Twain 102). This is definitely showing discriminations on human being just because of their inherent traits.
The novel, Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn, is a story of a young boy and a slave who ran away from their homes in search of freedom. Even though they were running away from home, they both wanted the same thing. They grew a strong relationship together throughout the book. Jim became the main adult figure in Huck Finn’s life, helping to make decisions but making sure to not be strict like Huck’s home. I think that part of the reason Huck liked Jim so much was because even though Jim was older, he was african-american so Huck felt like he was not being controlled.
