Andy Warhol once said, “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself”. Change is affected by time and by people in different ways. A negative change can ultimately have a positive outcome. Change is not always bad, but in order for it to be good you need to make it good. Change occurs all the time, and it happens to everyone at one point in his or her life. Sometimes the change is good, sometimes its the worst thing, but it all happens for a reason. “Rivers and Tides,” a film about artist Andy Goldsworthy, represents change in nature because rivers are always changing, and you will never step in the same one twice. Tides on the other hand, are just small changes in sea level that come and go. Rivers are …show more content…
Imagine a world where no humans existed, and all that existed was the past we had left behind, and the animals that we had raised that were now roaming the streets to find the next safe place to live. “Life After People,” a short story by Dolores Vasquez is the frightening story of how the world would be without humans. So empty, and so out of control, Earth’s existence would practically be no more because without humans everything that we have worked for would just be left to fend for it self. The life we once knew would never see daylight again. “Over the next fifteen years the roads get overgrown and cracked” (Vasquez 53). Over those fifteen years the cities we once had built would be destroyed, and covered in vegetation, and cracked. Is this imagined for our futures? Animals are left without owners, which means they are not fed so they are running to find a food source. Eventually this system will stop. Smaller animals will feed off dairy cows, and other farm animals, but when they die out completely, dogs, and cats will be left to find food from other sources. When those other sources run out it is just minimal time before the small animals die out as well. As time goes on things disappear, and are destructed by the wrath of time. Cities slowly fall apart, human existence gone, and now no animals roaming the earth we once lived upon. The change that happens is up to your point of view. The change can be positive; because with humans off earth it can go back to the way it was before, clean, and healthy. The change can also be negative because with humans gone everything that has happened the last millions of years is gone

“Man’s adaptation to nature in never a matter of technical understanding and inventiveness.” (Worster, 175) Man adapts to nature through trial and error, much like Worster expresses, people from the affected communities learned how to adapt to nature, learned how even something so natural as soil can become over
Change is something that everyone and everything goes through. Changes could be good, or they could be bad. It all depends on how you view the world, and the people you surround yourself with.

Change. Change is an ordinary process in life that allows humans to evolve as individuals, societies, and as a species. Yet, not all changes are the same. Not all changes are equal. The effect of getting a new job is different than the effect of losing a job.
My six word memoir is very self explanatory and purely honest. When someone close to you dies, I wouldn’t say it gets easier each year. But in fact it takes time to accept it. We can’t continue to have a mindset that repeats phrases like, “ What if?” or “ If only we could’ve done this…” We can’t go back change the natural occurrences of events. But what we can change is the here
Only until something dramatic occurs do we remain forever changed. Psychological studies show that it takes significant misfortunes like a major tragedy in one's life to change personalities. PsycNet says, “The individual is likely to meet his world in terms of the personality structure which is already formed. This does not imply that changes do not occur, but they are more likely to occur at times when the individual is faced with conflicts, since stresses often necessitate the development of new modes of behavior in meeting one's environment.” The creation says, “ I am malicious because I am miserable” (104).
One scientific forecast presumes that as the sun ages and grows hotter, levels of cabon dioxide in the future would be too low. Innes (2013) asserts that in less than a billion years, carbon dioxide levels would be too unfavorable for plants to exhibit photosynthesis; therefore, any living organism would cease to exist. Moreover, the changing patterns of the Earth’s magnetic field is also a prognosis that scientists consider. Our planet has obviously decreased some energy that it stored in its original magnetic field. Barnes (2015) adds that it is alarming how the magnetic field is decaying 10 times faster and may decay even more rapidly in the years to come.
Change occurs every day involuntarily. When people encounter change they are limited to only two points of views on it, negatively or positively. Some may react by panicking and going into denial whereas others may try to adapt to it and make the best out of the situation. It can affect one’s life drastically depending on the situation and how they portray it. In the movie “Rivers and Tides” and the story “Metamorphosis,” and the passage, “Simplexity”, change is initially portrayed as positive, but after a series of events it becomes overthrown by negativity.
It occurs due to rise in global warming which occurs due to increase in temperature of atmosphere by burning of fossils fuels and release of harmful gases by industries. Climate change has various harmful effects but not limited to melting of polar ice, changes in seasons, occurrence of new diseases, frequent occurrence of floods and change in overall weather scenario. • Loss of Biodiversity: Human activity is leading to the extinction of species and habitants and loss of bio-diversity. Eco systems, which took millions of years to perfect, are in danger when any species population is decimating. Balance of natural processes like pollution is crucial to the survival population is decimating.
The extinction rate is one hundred to a thousand times greater than it was before the human species evolved on the planet. Currently, Earth is in its sixth mass extinction, with one sixth of all species going extinct. If all of these species go extinct, humans will also be greatly harmed (Worrall). Humans can not continue without the great interconnected biodiversity we currently have, because all animals on the planet are inter-connected in their habits and way of life. If we begin to destroy minor food chains from small-scale animals going extinct, greater and greater
