This PSA was created by the National Wildlife Fund to raise awareness about global warming and how they believe that it is bad. Since they are against global warming and the melting ice caps they want to convince people to follow the same stance. To bring this message forward they use a variety of rhetorical devices including the clear use of the loaded word. They main quote that makes sense of the PSA and ties it together is “When the ice caps melt, so will he.” The use of loaded words such as “Melt” and “He” leave marks in human emotion as humans tend to remember words and not points meaning that once the viewer is gone they can remember that PSA as they just remember the point. The use of loaded word although subtle is enough to create an
For the my articles or columns used, the shared topic was climate change and whether any actions will be taken accordingly. After reading and evaluating all the information, I have concluded that the article “Republicans Try a New Tack on Climate Change” (The New York Times) by Justin Gillis, presents a clear and well rounded argument that emphases on climate change, its effects on the environment and humanity as well as solutions to the issue. In the article, the writer presents most of their evidence in a logical and scientific way by having them be addressed by an expert: ‘“.. All those things have been ruled out,” said Drew Shindell, an atmospheric scientist at Duke University.” Unlike in the other articles, there is no expertise or claim
Do you often hear things like "we are killing our planet" or "global warming is a massive problem" from your local hippies? I 'm sure you must accept the common misconception that humans have made a huge impact on climate change, well I beg to differ: humans are actually not the main reason to climate change. In this essay I will explain as to why climate change isn 't caused by humans and why you should change your perspective on the topic. By analyzing that Global warming is natural, sea levels have been steadily rising for thousands of years, and CO2 has little impact on global warming, it becomes obvious that climate change was not cause by humans.
Whoever says science states facts isn’t saying the truth because science is always evolving and making new discoveries. Climate change is going to be a big concern, it’s going to cause a mass change in agriculture, the rising heat will affect farmers and how they grow crops. The burning toxic chemicals cannot lead to a positive outcome as well, it may rise health problems and create different types of dieses that’ll affect mankind. Science has its predictions, but how solid can these predictions be? “The Myth of ‘Settled Science.’” is an article written by Charles Krauthammer that addresses a different point of view on global warming. Krauthammer questions if what these scientists are saying is actually true or if it’s a way for them to manipulate the people. I agree with Krauthammer that not everything we are told about global warming is true, and that not everything can be blamed on global warming; however, I disagree that global warming is not happening.
Before heading out the door for your first hunt, these are a few tips for you to keep in mind. You might even want to take a safety course for hunters prior to heading into the woods. While you might have an experienced buddy with you, he might not remember what it was like to be a beginner, which could be a problem for you.
It’s obvious to see that global warming is becoming more and more of an issue. What we don’t know is how much global warming is going to affect us in the future. Some people believe it’s a major issue while other aren’t quite sure if it would even change anything or cause damage. When you look at the statistics though, it’s easy to realize that something, like using renewable resources, must be done to slow down global warming or stop it all together.
One of the main reasons polar bears are going extinct is because they aren’t getting the right amount of food they need to survive. Seals, the main food source for the polar bears, are animals that depend largely on the algae that grows on the ice of the Arctic. With the ice content slowly depleting, there isn’t enough seals to sustain the polar bear population. One of the
Climate change, specifically warmer temperatures, has extensively altered these habitats by reducing sea ice extent, thus affecting polar bears since they use it as a platform to travel, hunt, and rest. Changes in the timing of sea ice formation and break up limits the amount of time bears can feed off of seals during late and early summer, hence limiting the amount of fat they are able to store for later seasons. Lower rates of food intake and storage correlates to low reproductive rates, and since females do not have sufficient fat and mass required for successful parturition, they abstain from
Hardin’s utilizes metaphors to aid the reader’s understanding of his article instead of confusing the reader. Essentially, Hardin gives the reader a scenario in which the reader, a citizen of a rich nation, floats safely abroad a lifeboat while the poor swim out to sea. The simplicity of his lifeboat metaphor actively engages the reader on the difficulty of survival when only a few can. Readers can easily picture themselves in this metaphoric life boat due to the common familiarity of life boats, or boats in general. In his second metaphor, Hardin, in his article stays on point without distracting the readers. To drive his distaste towards a world food bank, Hardin, creates the metaphor of a shared commons. Although accessible to the public,
There are 3 types of polar bears: ones with thick coats, ones with thin coats and ones with medium coats. It is fall, soon to be winter. The temperatures are dropping rapidly and the bears must be kept warm, or they will freeze to death. Many of the bears have had 2 cubs each but due to the extreme temperatures, many mothers only have one cub left.
Great white sharks are the biggest predatory fish in the ocean and they can grow to about 15 feet in size, although larger than 20 feet have been seen. Their name comes from the white underbellies of the sharks and their bodies are designed to blend in with the seabed. The great whites have powerful tails which makes them excellent swimmers that can travel up to 24 km/h. They have many rows of triangular shaped teeth and have a great sense of smell and even their body can sense electromagnetic fields produced by animals. They mainly eat sea lions, small toothed whales and sea turtles. These sharks can be found in cold coastal waters around the world, scientists are not sure how many
The childhood dream of owning a pet monkey or tiger is a common one, but that’s all that owning an exotic animal should be: a dream. Over 10,000 exotic animals are trafficked into the United States each year, a multi-million-dollar industry on the black market. Owning a wild animal may seem fun and exciting, but with the ownership of such a creature, dangerous consequences follow. The ownership of an exotic animal not only puts the owner 's life at risk, but the animal 's and the environments. There is a common theme among people that it 's humanity 's responsibility to preserve the world we live in, yet there are more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild. Despite the consequences of owning a wild animal, many people disregard the
I don’t know if you have ever read, touching spirit bear before, but if you have, you know what a spirit bear is A.K.A. Kermode bear.
In the article ‘Why Bother?’ Michael Pollan, a Professor of Journalism at the University of California, examines the dangers of climate change and how ordinary citizens can reduce its effects on the environment. Although most scientists are concerned and have warned nations of its disastrous effects some still deny the existence of climate change. As if melting ice caps and the ever-increasing blue waters were not enough proof, some citizens believe that climate change is an “unproven theory or a negligible contribution to natural climate variability” (Hall 3). Nevertheless, citizens who believe in global warning can change how they live for the better. Growing a garden, reducing the use of fossil fuels, and proper use of land can improve climate
Richard Lidzen’s article Global Warming: The science in Three Nutshells explores the idea of global warming from three different perspectives, the scientists, the skeptics and the media. The opinions seem to be similar but their differences are what the article is focusing on. There is a lot of information out there and Lidzen is set to clear that up.
