Finally, I will advocate why the US should increase their budget to double what it is currently at also addressing counter-arguments. Due to the fact of low funding, the problems caused have been immense. Underfunding NASA affects many different industries and the citizens of the US. The effect it has on citizens is a disheartening one, people are being deprived of inspiration. No longer are heroes being created for people to idolize.
An American Apparel store in Los Angeles had to lay off 500 workers because of the recent city increase to $15 an hour (Sherk). This number is shocking, and American Apparel responded saying, they cannot start pay at $15, instead wages should increase as the amount of sales increases. This makes since, for a company cannot spend money they are not receiving. After extensive research and studies, economists have concluded that for every 10% increase in minimum wage, the country could see a 7% decrease in unemployment (Sherk). This could cost the United States over 7 million jobs.
Again, there's a lot of reasons of why the minimum wage shouldn’t be raised but a few of them are, businesses and companies will close or struggle, poverty will increase, and the prices of consumer goods will increase too. The economy already struggles, raising the minimum wage will set off many economic indicators. That means that our economy will start to go down
So a growing human population must pose some kind of a threat to the well-being of planet Earth, mustn 't it?Currently, we as a population use up most of the resources how we please, waste, and even pollute. Our plan is to feed and to breed. The fertility rate has all of a sudden gone up incredibly over the past decade. Yes, we are getting overpopulated but there is no way we can control that.We simply cannot just kill every other baby that is born. Imagine every year how many graduates there are in different universities, college school from different countries.
Some of the animals that are brought here could have the same similar habitat that the native animals have and could scare the native animals out of their original habitat.Since the animals ruin the environment people should not release the non native animals. People who are worried about there invasive species getting to big should call someone who deals with wild animals and they will decide what they need to do with the
Paul Ehrlich was the front man for the idea that we would run out of resources and live in squalor, which would lead to situations like the one in “2BR02B”. In his book, Population Bomb, he argued “through his life that there is an impending doom containing overpopulation and starvation”(Ehrlich 18). Let the facts show that the world has taken the right path toward sustaining life and sending us towards prosperity. In R. Engelman article “Population and Sustainability: Can We Avoid Limiting the Number of People” Engelman’s key argument was that “slowing the rise in human numbers is essential for the planet--but it doesn't require population control”(Engelman 49). Placing a cap on the population will force consequences as
As whole organism cloning becomes common around the world, we can’t help but think that someday, a human being will also be cloned. I personally believe that this is ethically incorrect as a human is given a life span for a reason and believe that once we die we should not be able to have another organism genetically identical come back into the world. Other problems such as reduced genetic biodiversity occur when cloning an organism. Reducing genetic biodiversity is a problem as it makes a species vulnerable to external changes in the environment. For example, if there were very sudden climatic conditions that were to change until the point where a species couldn’t survive in (e.g extreme temperatures), the population would decrease significantly and potentially be wiped out.
From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting. Our natural resources are at risk every time fracking occurs. Fracking needs to be banned since it is hurting our health and that it drains our natural and limited resources required for us to sustain life. Water is an essential to living and it is a need. Without it we would be dead from the dehydration.
Adding the fact that using animals has proven to be a dangerous and unreliable procedure, it is no wonder that people are supporting the elimination of this tired system. In order to improve the lives of millions of people from around the world, scientists need to eradicate animal testing and new, more effective methods need to be put in
The last thing is that we need to make laws more strict to help from people trying to cheat the fishing way. One big law, we need is the size amount of fishing because some people will take fish that aren’t even the right size and they also don’t measure it. Another law that we need to have is that we need to be able to check the boats for drugs or illegal fishing. Last we need to make Fishing camps for people to fish in and not have areas where there are people that can get endangered fish and make them extinct. So in conclusion to Overfishing there is multiply ways to stop from boats to sports to laws each one has something bad in it or need to be enforced and that is how we will help our earth and animals in
