It’s actions like this that really demonstrate how the Sierra Club has done in the past and will possibly do in the future. In the Sierra Club’s history, they have been effective in helping pass federal bills that made the outdoors safer for wildlife (Sierra). Because of this, I can strongly predict the charity will continue to do anything in its power to protect and preserve wildlife and the environment. Each day, the Sierra Club helps protects defenseless plants and animals from laws that would damage their fragile habitat. For example, they’ve helped pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act, as well as peacefully protesting for national parks, such as Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.
Seaver addresses the idea that the Coca-Cola Company came up with the ideal slogan of “the real thing” first. Seaver believes and also states in his letter to Herbert that if both companies use the slogan, then there will be confusion in the products, that will cause the customers to be misleading. Seaver complicates matters further when he describes the disadvantage of using the same slogan, which will eventually affect their merchandise. In other words, Seaver knows that if both companies keep using the same motto, customers would be confused in which product is advertised, and it can cause a downfall in their financial.
"An Enviro's Case for Seal Hunt" (2013) is an opinionated article by author and journalist Terry Glavin, arguing against the controversy and negativity surrounding the Canadian seal hunt. The author states that not only is sealing humane, it is also sustainable. Glavin bases his article on his experiences and research with various environmental organizations such as "the Sierra Club, the David Suzuki Foundation, Greenpeace, etc." (Glavin, 2013, p. 166). Because of his personal experiences with environmental issues, Glavin's article presents a strong bias.
The binding force behind his major endeavors is his yearning to save Theban citizens from the prevailing plague by expulsing the land’s religious population. This is evidenced when he says; “Indeed I’m willing to give all that you may need; I would be very hard should I not pity suppliants like these” (Oedipus the king, lines 10-12). Indeed, this comforting statement can be regarded as the fuel of Oedipus’ subsequent actions within the play. Oedipus goes forward by differentiating himself in the way he wants his people feel satisfied; he prefers Creon’s message from the Delphic oracle to be publicly delivered in the suppliants’ presence. This democratic leadership style ignites Oedipus’ yearning to save his people.
While the story takes place in the future at the time, after humanity has found a solution for environmental destruction besides changing habits, Ron, the administrative assistant, talks about humanity's past and all the things we as humans have done to harm the ecosystem. In Ron's time, environmentalism is a worldwide concern much as it is today, so much so that there is an "International Institute of Environmental Sciences." As Ron notes, Kim represents everyone who cares about the environment. However, instead of trying to minimize pollution, as today's environmentalists advocate, the futuristic human society in the story are free to produce as much toxic waste and dangerous gasses as it pleases without any reproductions or concern, since at the end of the year, it can be formulated into one donut with a single human sacrifice forced to eat the donut which they full heartedly believe will solve all of the environmental problems that we have on this earth. Now personally I do not understand why someone has to consume the donut.
Jimmy Carter - Persuasive Techniques Usually, when people have to give a speech or write an essay they have to convey a message or convince the audience of a specific idea or argument. In this instance it is very important for the speaker to use the correct techniques so they can connect to the audience and convince them of their point of view. For politicians especially they must be able to have the audience intrigued and convinced of their ideas. In his speech to prevent those who wanted to industrialize and drill oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, President Jimmy Carter can be seen using many of the common argumentative techniques, such as logos, pathos, and ethos, to convince his audience against the industrialization of the Refuge. To build his argument, the reader can see Carter use his personal experiences, historical evidence, and alternative options to support his claim.
Then based on their data they can make conclusions in order to stand up for their findings, just as they did in the movie when Jake and Grace joined with the Na 'vi to stop the soldiers. We are making similar efforts on Earth, like scientists using their data on global climate change to create committees and advocate for protecting our environment. The scientists and their role in the film mitigates the situation because it gives the viewers another aspect of the film to view and shows that the humans have other intentions besides destroying the planet. On
For this reason, the people created for the purpose of this cartoon try to rephrase the negative idea of pollution into a more positive topic regarding prosperity and progress. Their euphemism of pollution only tries to cover up its severe aspects and characteristics and not confront them. All things considered, the cartoonist desired to bring attention to this issue while stating the hypocrisy of corporations as they claim to be improving society when, in fact, they are only bringing harm to nature and to the environment. By creating this cartoon, he has stated his opinion on the matter as he implies how he yearns to stop pollution and the corporations that contaminate the atmosphere with their toxic gases and
Climate change has been a controversial problem for a long time. Many people agree that although rising temperatures will have serious consequences if left unchecked, we can avoid disaster if we adopt clean and renewable energy sources. Eduardo Porter, on the other hand, paints a different picture, believing instead that the effects of climate change are inevitable. He uses several techniques to argue his point, mainly word choice, authoritative sources, and statistics. Porter begins his essay with three short, straightforward sentences proclaiming that climate change is “bearing down upon you now” and that there is “nothing you-or anyone else can do to prevent the hit.”
She knows that natural resources are the great of treasure of her country. American imperialism on Canada is the major threat to the resources of Canada. Americans destroys the nature for extending their national borders and laying railway lines. As the water resources in America is decreasing, the have plans to take pure water from the lakes of Canada. Canada is the country of various natural resource and their people consider them as major treasure to their
Krakauer first uses foreshadowing in chapter 3; “One climber’s actions can affect the welfare of the whole team” (47). Krakauer wrote that to make the readers think about what the causes of the disaster might have been. Krakauer also used foreshadowing to describe the disaster when writing Jan Arnold’s assumption of Rob Hall, “Rob’s feeling was that it wouldn’t be him; he was just worried about having to save another team’s ass’” (64). Krakauer wrote that quote not only for foreshadowing, but for irony because it was not Rob’s team saving another, it was another team saving Rob’s.
Karner illustrates how changes in community have to start in the presence to avoid the effects of drastic climate change that harm living species and humanity any more than it should. Similar to Doctor Roussos’s idea of helping Merced community, Karner’s thought is to take actions that could possibly provide the lower the risk of Earth extinction where humans start caring on the effects that they are leaving on the planet and actions have to start on influential and intellectual
Some individuals believe that using the wilderness for drilling of oil purposes will solve the US and its dependency on foreign oil. Through this article, Democratic congressman Edward J. Markey, alongside Representative Nancy Johnson, discuss the reasons for which they want to save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or the ANWR, and other wilderness reserves from being developed on and industrialized. This wildlife reserve has been labeled as being one of the most magnificent reserves found in America. Unfortunately, people want to encroach on this territory and use it to increase the nation’s oil and gas development. This is not the first time that the reserve has been threatened but it is the most extreme.
With such a fighting spirit, even the damage of industrialization was no match for it. After using calming and soothing words to describe the beauty of the Arctic Refuge, the author immediately pulls the readers to the harsh reality and blackness of a “web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities’. He describes the effects that it will have on the ecosystem and on America’s only Arctic Refuge.
Though Kristof counters the favored opinion, that sweatshops should be abolished and taken away from underdeveloped countries, he still validates all of his ideas and causes the reader to think. Imagery traditionally magnifies the reader 's imagination allowing them to create the scene described in their mind, by using this literary technique Kristof creates a more relatable and thought provoking article. “It’s a mountain of festering refuse, a half-hour hike across, emitting clouds of smoke from subterranean fires.” Kristof says, formulating a vivid image in the reader 's mind of the harsh conditions that people are living in.
