Canadian company TransCanada hopes to build Keystone XL a pipeline that carries Canadian tar sand oil from Canadian border to the Golf Coast. According to Derber “the pipeline extracts some of the dirtiest oil on the planet, a process that sends many polluting chemicals into the ground waters and releases methane, the most potent greenhouse gas, into the air, creating one of the greatest climate threat” (p. 115). A leak from a pipeline carrying the tar sand oil could cause environmental damage and pollute our drinking water and agricultural irrigation. The builders of the Keystone XL Pipeline are wilders. According to Derber, “environmental wilding in the natural environment, such as reckless polluting that causes global warming” (p. 11).
Endangered specie populations in Mexico Introduction: Humans have drastically modified wildlife by polluting the earth we live in. Pollution is one of the major insidious threats to the environment, it ranges from obvious action, such as dumping in rivers and lakes to sprayed undetected chemicals. However, if the effect is permanent or short term the outcome does not change. Pollution changes the balance of ecosystems which causes numerous animals to become extinct. For example, the Bald eagle, peregrine falcon, and brown pelican all became endangered or extinct prior to scientists finding out that the chemical DDT, a chemical used largely in the United States as a pesticide.
Congressional Gridlock Congressional Gridlock is a recurring issue in America’s political system, and it is crippling the efficacy of the governments ability to lead the country to overall prosperity.

The oil spill caused monumental environmental damage to the Alaskan coastline where some species are still recovering from today. The impact of the spill on flora and fauna, human life and the economy was staggering which was caused by human error, lack of adequate resources and insufficient support from external systems. The oil spill tested the preparedness and response to a disaster of this magnitude, which revealed many shortcomings. Due to this historical event, numerous important lessons and recommendations emerged to prevent or mitigate the impacts of future
Considering the social and economic unsustainability factors of the Three Gorges Dam, there are also various environmental reasons for the unsustainability of the project. The main motive of the Three Gorges Dam project was to be able to prevent floods that have killed thousands of citizens and has destroyed millions of homes, however the dam will flood over 1,000 acres of farmland and will obliterate over dozens of villages, causing 2 million Chinese people to evacuate their home. (China 's Mega Dam) The irony of this situation is that the problem that the dam is trying to fix, the mass floodings, is in fact making the situation worse by flooding more land, and once all of the land is underwater all of the structures and sewage will pollute the Yangtze river and could eventually cause backup in the dams

People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
Jimmy Carter, a former US president effectively incorporates logos – facts and evidence, pathos – appealing word choice and emotion, and ethos – credibility to build his persuasive argument. Carter strives to contend that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry. First, throughout the article, there are many situations where Jimmy Carter incorporates facts and examples. For example, he states, “The Arctic Refuge might provide 1 to 2 percent of the oil our country consumes each day.” By using such numbers, Carter forces the reader to evaluate the situation by recognizing the difference between an insignificant financial income and enormous damage to the territory. Furthermore, Carter mentions that “there are few places on earth as wild and fierce as the Arctic Refuge” to prove to the audience that the refuge is distinctive, rare, and does not
The consequences now is that Canada has 97 lakes, three oceans, and 62 rivers protected in comparison to the 32,000 lakes, and 2.25 million rivers before the bill was passed (Graveline, 2012: 295). This means that Canadian waters are not environmentally protected are therefore easily accessible to companies and the industry as a whole. With the history of oil spills, which is the industry that Bill C-45 is benefiting, the people nearest those population will feel the impacts of this bill the most. The most recent oil spill happened on April, 2011 documented to be the largest land spill in Alberta known as the Little Buffalo oil spill which affected Lubicon Cree community the most (Graveline, 2012:
This happens in big corporations and business transactions; ABC Company has every right to proceed on litigation if XYZ fails to do the following; a) Pay hefty compensation to ABC for not being straightforward as a big brand,150 watts is not same as 250 watts; it’s not as a result of mistake but a deliberate attempt to shortchange ABC company. b) Tender an unreserved apology to ABC Company and their customers in various media houses, this is because it might be winter and cold and all orders for the 250 watts will be cancelled, It’s proven that death rate increases in winter due to excessive cold.
