He told the humans, “of every tree in the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Moses 67). The fruit of the tree was the fruit of knowledge so God was very angry when he found out the humans had gained knowledge. The anger the god of Genesis had resulted in him creating a flood so that he could wipe out all of the humans except one good family. The gods in Popol Vuh also created a flood so they could clear out their bad creations. Both gods believed that they needed to have a flood to clear out their
This results in the Bar-ba-loots having to move because their food source, the Truffula trees, are being cut down and not replanted which, therefore, does not leave enough for everyone to feed on. Then, the intolerable fumes from the factory invaded, and poisoned the air and water, which makes it very hard for the Swomee-swans to fly and breathe and the Humming-fish to swim. This is significant because it’s happening in real life too, but people are acting oblivious to it. There are way too many oil and natural gas companies that begin drilling without fully researching and understanding the long-term environmental impact. This is affecting both humans and animals.
Once there were no trees, all of the nutrient-filled topsoil was washed away due to the fact there were no tree roots to hold it down (Dangerfield). Without soil to grow crops and no wood to build canoes- the Rapa Nui people turned on each other. As the people of the island slowly began to starve, they were forced to become cannibalistic. Human bones were found in large pits where other food waste was thrown, providing further evidence that the islanders were forced to resort to cannibalism (How Easter Island Works). If the trees had never been destroyed in the first place, the Rapa Nui people never would have had to resort to this inhuman behavior.
They were told to mine minerals from the earth so the Europeans could make money. Any human does not like to be bossed around by other people so soon the Africans started to turn and fight the Europeans. This fights turned into wars and lead to a large amount of deaths for the African population. People of all ages wee murdered by the new killing machine, the machine gun. This is another reason why I believe humanity took a step back during this time
Additionally, he let his men violate the Arawak women. All of these awful deeds Columbus did lead the Indians to suicide themselves with cassava poison. The Arawak population drastically decreased until there was none of the original Arawaks or their descendants left on the island. Columbus was not only cruel to the Indians, but also to his crewmen. He ignored their cries of hunger and sickness and pushed them to work.
The tome revealed that the Keys cloudseeded their way into power, by stealing any rainclouds using cloudseeders to direct clouds to rain on the Keys, and leave no rain left for anywhere else, making the areas between the Keys parched and thus become the Droughtland. The perspective that Eli gained from reading that passage was massive. The Droughtland had countless people suffering from disease and lack of water because Eli’s own home
They ruined the soil (doc 7), and they exported food out of India and into England, whilst Indians were dying of starvation (doc 4). But, Dr. Lalvani argues that the Brits were not all that harmful, as they did build animal reserves, and the railroads they built to export food are now at the heart of Indian development. Despite them making enclosures for hunted animals -- such as Rhinos -- (Lalvani), they also destroyed the soil, as they grew an overabundance of cash crops, and cut down whole forests due to their greed for wood, which led to salinization, and to a lack of food and water for Indians (doc 7). This means that many Indians during this time lost all their food and water, and were dying of starvation and dehydration, due to the British over growing crops and cutting down trees. Meanwhile, the food that was being grown was transported to England, and sold there, as well as the trees that were being cut down (doc 4).
In the following quote from the Homestead strike reading is a reflection of what happened, “The Battle at Homestead will be remembered as an occasion where human greed and civil rights collided and neither one came out on top” The Homestead strike made the Industrial Revolution more harmful because it lost many lives that didn’t need to be lost. Carnegie company was one of the richest ever and it couldn’t afford to give poor men and women a small pay raise. Also, they created a horrible situation by sending in the Pinkertons to do their dirty work. The amazing thing is that Frick had a huge mansion ten miles away but he still had to starve families. In conclusion, the violent labor disputes made the industrial revolution more harmful and lost unnecessary
Food scarcity becomes the major problem of Animal Farm but pigs have always more than enough food to eat. Napoleon oppresses others and sells his most hardworking horse to the knacker. In the last chapter rebellion becomes nothing for animals. Pigs control them which lead to the most devastating example of injustice in the world just like all the tyrant governments and politicians. Pigs become similar to humans.“ Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike.
Killing animals also means killing the food chain that they were involved in. Trophy hunting is one of the main causes the disruption of the food chain. The food chain consists of one animal eating from another and that leading to the cycle. Hunters killing these animals interrupt the whole process in the cycle. Picture this having a baby but then the baby dies, nothing happens afterwards in result.
After a while Once-ler goes back and chops down all the trees in the forest. He later then builds a factory and pollutes the air and does the normal harm a factory does. Once he started making money and producing his “Thneeds”, he couldn’t stop. The trees almost went extinct because he chopped down every last one. Luckily they
Uptown Sinclair’s book The Jungle was originally written to expose the working conditions within the meat packing industry. Sinclair shocked millions as he bore what it was really like behind the scenes. Employees worked with contaminated and rotting meat, which was not a health violation at the time. This eventually led to new food and federal safety laws. Most of the labor force was an immigrant, who moved to the United States with hopes of the “American Dream.” Most would say that they did not find what they were looking for.
