Consumption became part of our culture as well as consumerism. In every consumption of goods, it affects our environment because of the waste of the products that we used. At present, the consumption rate continuously increases which is very alarming. The extravagant desire of consumer has made the current environmental imbalance and these imbalances will cause a huge problem than people await. These imbalances have just caused environmental debacles in places everywhere throughout the world. These are the current environmental issues Pollution, climate change, global warming, deforestation, overpopulation, industrial and household waste, acid rain, ozone layer depletion, genetic engineering and urban sprawl.
It may seem absurd at first, but the idea of a “Buy Nothing Day” may be what society truly needs. The main focus of this day is to reduce the damage we put on the environment from pollution, overconsumption, and making wrong choices. The “Buy Nothing Day” should be in full effect and should be incorporated into every month for the sake of the environment, the people, and the world.
“Ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country” JFK said in a speech . What I would do for the USA, is to help the environment by picking up trash and other items. Here are some more examples, saving water and electricity are the biggest problems. We can also clean up the parks and streets. So to do it, we could have signs to tell people to take care of the earth by recycling. The following are reasons why recycling is important to America; one, so we don 't cut down so many trees, two, it saves energy, three, previous global warming reduces water pollution, and five, it reduces waste. All of this keeps the country a nice place to live, work, play, and make friends. We take advantage of the freedom,
“I fear for our future. Our planet earth is threatened with an ever expanding population and only finite resources. We need a plan B.” - Quotation by Stephen Hawking, renowned physicist. Our world is dying. We have been mining coal for only two hundred of our 200 000 year existence as a species, yet we have already caused irreparable damage to the environment. We face a huge array of potentially disastrous threats to our planet, many of which could spell the end of humanity itself. The only way to feasibly secure the survival of our species is to leave Earth and colonise other planets, and to facilitate this we need to improve both our understanding of space and our ability to traverse it. The way onwards from this dangerous stalemate can only be the necessary investment of both resources and brainpower into the exploration of this vast and rich frontier.
We need to know how and why it is important to conserve earth, and understand what it offers. In the book A Conservationist Manifesto (2009), Scott Russel Sanders explains why it is important to be in touch with nature, and how it will take us farther than technology: Russel Sanders comments on the same issues, “It is plain that earth cannot support for much longer the extravagant way of life so common in rich countries” (6). What Sanders is trying to convey is that we are wasting the resources that nature has let us borrow to survive, and losing the appreciation towards nature. Earth is not going to be able to keep up with our technological advances for much longer. There are many other books, shows, novels, and movies that also convey the same message Sanders does, such as the movie The Hunger Games. In the
Pollan described some people as cheap- energy mind. I consider myself one of those people. Because even when I had planted on my small garden some vegetables and bought local food. It’s never enough there is much that I can do. Instead of creating a change I also leave point the fault to corporations and I hope for great changes which must be created by organizations or led the responsibility to the government. I considered that we as citizens are not working enough to make our environment better. As how Pollan mentioned, what bother? When miles away from us there is people creating a massive amount of pollution, double that the one that I 'm trying to avoid. But why we should care about them, when if we want to make a huge change we should
China and the United Stated of America alone are responsible for two-fifths of the carbon dioxide emission in the whole wide World. Therefore, it’s more important than ever that United States of America as well as China lead with perfect examples. Without effectively working as a unit for climate control it will not be possible. The past shows that the United States of America is not leading with a good example. Just five years ago, the U.S. Senate could not get the majority in coming up with a climate control law. Besides all this we know what the main cause of air pollution is: humans. How can we change to play a positive role? Is it the government itself or can we as individuals contribute to reduce air pollution. It is a very sensitive
Bottled water is something that I drink daily. I have at least 8 bottles every day, and most days I drink many more. So, when posed with the question, "Would you buy less bottled water if you knew the facts about its production and impact on the environment, and why?", I am forced to think about my own consumption of bottled water. In general, I like to think of myself as a pretty environmentally conscious person. I avoid using harmful chemicals in my home, and use natural alternatives whenever possible. I plant flowers around my home to help the declining bee population. I have reduced the amount of waste that my household produces, and I make sure to recycle whatever I can. I even refrain from eating meat because of the meat industry's negative environmental impact,
Many humans are ruining the environment. “Everyday we dump 70 million tons of waste into the world.” Says Al Gore. If people keep on doing this then the wonderful world outside today will be gone in a very short amount of time. Humans need to stop doing this. I believe that at times nature is more important than humans.
As of November of 2017, Delhi, India, was the most polluted city on the planet. In 2015, nine million people died from pollution, and in India alone, two and a half million people died. The World Health Organization stated that air pollution will continue to harm and kill many people around the world, and of course India, for many years, with poorer countries being affected the most (Irfan). So, it seems that the only way to save the planet is to save the poorest, and simply using the previously mentioned technology does not seem like enough. So, what our planet needs is for a wide scale project to help reduce global warming and
Starting in 1992 in Canada, a Buy Nothing Day has been organized where people are encouraged to not buy any goods for an entire day. The awareness day has since been accepted by many other countries which has raised question: Should a day like this be in action worldwide? However, most people are quick to think of their own personal benefits during awareness days, like simply having a day off work, and lose focus on the true meaning behind those days. Because of that coupled with the near impossibility of enforcing a day like this, therefore an annual Buy Nothing Day shouldn’t be exercised throughout the world. (Claim)
Pollution is the number one contributor to global warming and global contamination. Pollution is a substance or thing that has a harmful or poisonous effect in the environment. There are sub types of water and air pollution. Many pollutants have deadly effects in the environment. Global warming is one of the factors created by pollution and other variants. In the world there are two types of pollution and one connected outcome one type of pollution is air pollution, another is water pollution, and the outcome is global warming.
Our planet has now passed into a new era of periodization: the Anthropocene ( a chronlogy that began when human activities started). Some of the main issues that we are now facing is an environmental crisis. In two centuries, Earth has now leaned into a state which was unknown millions of years ago and is completely new.
There is no doubt that everyone at least once in the life was wondering about which role money plays in our life? In most cases, the answer was - the main. But why is this so? Why do people prefer lower prices of the products for high quality of life? In our time, this issue has become crucial to the existence of living beings. That is suffering primarily from delusions of mankind - is nature. Modern corporations provide unprecedented pressure on the environment. Environmental pollution made by industrial emissions has a detrimental effect on humans, animals, plants, soil, buildings and structures. It reduces the transparency of the atmosphere, increases the humidity, pollutes the water and soil and expands the diseases. In order to produce more corporation have to pollute more and buy the carbon credits from other countries. But what is the reason behind? Can corporations improve their technology? Can the pollution ever be stopped? In my personal opinion Corporations should not be allowed to pay for the right to pollute the environment.
“Save the planet!” “Stop pollution!” “Go green!” These popular slogans bring to mind images of protesters chanting and waving signs. These people are clearly worried about the state the world is in and want the rest of us to make a change. Protesting out in the streets isn’t the only way to influence people’s views about the environment, however. Another way to accomplish this is called ecocriticism, which involves using literature to persuade people to think more about the environment, its condition, and what they can do about it. There are several ways that authors do this. Sometimes they use scare tactics and talk about pollution and the dangerous effects of it; other times they go the opposite route and promote the environment by listing
