The sources of information used in this essay are books, the internet, documentaries and previously obtained knowledge, and these were used to support and provide evidence for my hypothesis; that humans are almost the sole reason for the decline in the population of sharks, and that killing sharks at the current rate will lead to undesired long-term effects for humans. The argument this essay supports is that humans have had a major, mostly negative impact on the population of sharks in recent years. The research supports the idea that the current disruptions to the lives of sharks does not benefit humans to a degree which is ethically justifiable, and that the long term effects of killing sharks would be severe, causing disruptions in the food chain and damaging the seafood industry in numerous
Article of the Week Response “The Wrong Way to Think about California Water” is an argumentative piece of writing that was written by Michael Hiltzik in the Los Angeles Times. This article stresses mostly about the mere fact of how people waste water; especially in California. The major drought is causing people to use more water than we actually need to use normally. We don’t need to use as much water as we do but we just find useless ways to waste it. Bottling water is one way of wasting it.
We noticed several species of fly larvae such as stone fly larvae and caddis fly larvae. We also noted a few worms. We decided that, since there was not large variety, the creek is not as healthy as it should be. After the activity, I decided that the most important fact that I learned is that the healthiness of the creek is very dependent on the surrounding environment. In order to maintain the health of our creek, we need to be careful around it and not put pollutants into the creek or in the surrounding area.
He borrowed money from his friends “"I was planning on doing the same thing with my half," Victor said. “But I didn 't imagine my father looking anything like a salmon. I thought it 'd be like cleaning the attic or something. Like letting things go after they 've stopped having any use. ”this shows how the Native American people were not equal to the whites and it shows how the white did not respect and ignore the deaths of the Native American and they treated like the death of animals.
In “the tragedy of commons” , he concluded “only the replacement of the system of the commons with a responsible system of control will save the land, air, water and ocean fisheries” which an accurate statement for “commons” can be diminish overtime if no one take the responsibility to care for it. In “Learning the hard way” and “ Population control the crude way”, Hardine pointed out a reason that make poor nations can’t become better. The U.S and other rich nations deposited food into the World Food Bank, the poor nations will withdraw the food from it; since the food always “available”, the poor nations will not learn to improve their
In addition, because nesting females generally return to their natal beaches and there is a low gene flow between nesting assemblages, these populations that are genetically distinct are at risk for extirpation (Ehrhart et al. 2003). Additionally, the potential for loggerheads to choose suitable nest sites is limited by human activity. Sea turtles will be less likely to nest on beaches that have high human recreation or that have been altered by humans. Beaches that are near human development pose a threat to sea turtles, not just by human presence, but because artificial lights prevent hatchlings from being able to orient themselves toward the ocean (Lindsay 2003).
If we are able to return it back it will proof that the oneness is still with us and if not, it means we became weak. So, my role was as a leader to remind my tribe, to value the sea and nature and their gods: Tangorora (King of the Ocean), Lord Tane (Father of Men and the Forest) and mainly the relationship between them because man and nature were waiting to grow together with the help of the men, but instead they demolished this connection and became conceited. This is possibly why only few people can speak in the language
Bottled water is not a wise consumer choice because of its harmful environmental effects, health concerns and the better alternative solutions we could use in place of bottled water. It all started when the people of Bundanoon decided that they did not want an extraction plant in their quiet town, they thought that if they did not want an extraction plant there, then why should they sell the bottled water there too. Another reason they did not want the extraction plant was because it would be extracting water from their aquifer. If to much water is extracted from the aquifer, it would dry up and need to be replaced by new water quickly or it could collapse, leaving people to have to find new places to get clean, fresh water. Bottled water is harmful to the environment due to the plastic holder that contains the water, is made from chemicals that could make anyone or anything sick.
The Whaling Ban Issue Globalization University of The People In order to preserve their cultural activities the Norwegian and Japanese people are opposing to the whaling ban which has been issued. Some villages’ main income was based on whale hunting and the ban is making the life of locals difficult. From a cultural activity that finds most of the world opposite, the people of these areas were providing for their families depending on the particular hunt. After pausing for a second on the dilemma; Norwegian and Japanese peoples’ income, or living whales? I would say that I definitely disagree with the position on permitting the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption.
Not throwing it in the river because that would kill a lot of fish and make the river look nasty. The film maker did an excellent job with emotions, logical appeal, but they did slack a little with their experts. The strongest use of appeal in the documentary would be emotion. At the beginning of the documentary it shows how they start with emotion. There is a lot of
The author states that the pollution hypothesis seemed the most likely cause of otters decline along the Alaskan coast and provides three reasons. In contrast, the professor states that the ongiong investigation show that the predation theory is mst likely the cause of the decline and sh.e opposes each of the author 's reasons First, the reading claims that there were known sources of pollution along the Alaskan coast. However, the professor refutes this pint by saying that the pollution theory is weakened by that no dead sea otters were washed up to the shore. She said thet if the infection is the cause of the decline, there should be a lot of killed otters washed up, so this fact is consistent with the predation theory because if the sear otters were killedby predetors, they would not wash up to the shore.
