It was not until the 20th century, most notably Gandhi and Martin Luther King, where Thoreau’s idea of civil disobedience came alive. His theory was espoused by the liberal and social progressive movement; most notably the Civil Rights

Prince Ea’s video titled “Dear Future Generations: Sorry” portrays the possible future faced by future generations if people don’t take responsibility for environmental issues that mankind has caused. Humankind must apologize for leaving the Earth an eyesore for the generations to come because they gave themselves reasons to not act. The descendents of the people of today will be forced to live without tree, for the reason that people of today didn’t realize how extraordinary the Earth was. Trees did a great deal such as, provide oxygen, fight against human ailments and contamination, but they were cut down so humans could obtain money. Unlike the Native Americans who took care of the planet for their children’s children, humans now aren’t thinking about
What sparked my interest in the environment, and nature in general was getting lost while on a family hike when I was seven. While my parents consider it a horrible family memory, I found enjoyment in spending time in the calmness of the wilderness around me. When I came to college it was almost inevitable that I would study environmental science, but I was too intrigued by all aspects of science to know what I truly had a passion for. This quickly changed during a lab my first semester of college. For the lab we were sent out to record the amount the types of trees in forested parts of campus.
Review of Literature Environmental issues began to be discussed and debated only towards the end of the 20th century. Since then significant amount of literature has been penned down raising awareness about issues of pollution, deforestation, animal rights and several others however it has failed to result in major changes, ideas or even actions to save the environment. Several species of animals have become extinct; pollution level is at an all-time high, global warming is leading to severe climate changes all across the globe but these problems do not seem to alarm the decision makers. Leydier & Martin (2013) also states that, “despite the increasing expression of concern in political and media debates about issues such as climate change, pollution and threats to biodiversity, “political ecology” (operating at the confluence of scientific developments, political engagement and ethical debates) is still trying to find its bearings” (p.7). It is quite evident that environmental issues are not treated in equivalence to political, economic, social or even religious issues.

His ideas were the product of a diverse early career; all of his experiences pre-planning (pre-1958, essentially) informed his designs down the road. Having spent a lot of time farming, Olmsted was fond of, and personally felt a connection to, transcendental ideals. He valued man’s connection with nature as a divine and important part of life. Olmsted’s quintessential love of nature springing from his farming days was compounded, firstly, by his inspiration from Andrew Jackson Downing. Downing was a mid 19th century author who wrote best selling books about rural life.
• Mughal rulers contributed by way of magnificent gardens, bountiful orchards and pleasure parks. However, though they spent a large time enjoying nature, they did not make great efforts in the direction of natural forest cover conservation. British Era The British colonialism undoubtedly brought about a depletion of India’s rich natural resource. This was in line with the Judeo Christian Principle that all resources & nature belonged to men and were meant for the exclusive use & benefit of the human species alone.
Historically, the field of psychology has generally discredited the importance of genetic factors in behavioral influences. Early psychological theories and research were heavily influenced by environmentalism, the notion that experience accounted for all traits in respect to the development of a person’s attitude. Early researches focused on the idea of evolution in respect to survival but never really took into account the psychological development of an individual. Charles Darwin, for example, explained the importance of evolutionary influences for the selection of traits for survival (Darwism), however never considered anything in respect to psychological research. Studies that explored the ideas of genetic and environmental influences on the human psychological state were not credited.

Creating and capturing memories are what is important to us at a Premier a Sportsman, Inc.
I believe historians should left behind the question of how many indigenous people were living in the American continent before Columbus arrival, after all professionals on the subject are not able to reach an agreement after “more than a century debating the question” debating; according to The unfinished Nation document. This not because to know the populations number is not important, but because there are many other interesting question were they can focus their attention. For example if they can study the way that indigenous people were able to manage their natural environment on their favor in such a large scale like the Amazon forest, as stated in chapter 1 of US: A Narrative History by James West. Understanding this management of resources will help us to determine in modern days how to explode our resources in a sustainable manner.
Story time was always something to look forward to when going over to my grandparents house. Every time my younger brother and I visited my grandparents, we were in for a treat as my grandpa told us stories of his time during WW2, and even going back further to the Enlightenment Period, the crusades, explorations, etc. “I wonder what grandpa is going to tell us today.” Joshua, my younger brother said- anticipation embedded on his face. After a couple of minutes driving we reached our destination - a brightly yellow painted house, with a big front yard that houses so many family of flowers, and a flag pole with the flag of the United States proudly sailing in the air.
