For example, immigration reform has been being considered since past President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, as stated by The Washington Post (Nakamura, O’Keefe 4). In the past six years the progress in advancing immigration reform has been miniscule because the drastically different opinions on how severe the reform should be. Some people, mainly liberals, disagree wholly with immigration reform because it contradicts the American ideal of all people, no matter their race, religion or gender, being welcome in the country, as well as, the distinction between refugees and immigrants. Others believe that, to continue to prosper, America can only solve American problems and to take on the responsibility of more people is detrimental to America’s wellbeing. And despite immigration being considered a “national crisis”, the Senate still, through a vote, prevented the progress of a bill that
In the book Anthem by Ayn Rand, the main character, Equality 7-2521 stated that in this society most people only live to be around 45. I have some theories as to why this is. They are, the government is trying to control population, Once you stop working you are mistreated and malnourished and, the technology and medicine that we have now and before the new society was erected, are no longer present and have not been rediscovered. My first theory as to why Equality 7-2521 stated that people rarely live to be 45 is because; the government is trying to control population. I think that the government is trying to control population because n the in this society everything runs on someone playing a part in making everything work.
Volkswagen is building car engines with faulty defeat devices. These devices help control how much gas is released from the car at one time. Laura Allen, the Deputy Press Secretary at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states, “VW’s illegal defeat devices have resulted in thousands of tons of excess NOx emissions in California, a state where more than 12 million people live in areas that exceed air quality standards set to protect public health” (4). Volkswagen has produced cheaper defeat devices hoping to save money, but they have broken the law and polluted the air in the process. However, Volkswagen is not the only one disregarding the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990.
There are many problems that society faces and one problem, such as air pollution threatens societies and entire world. Air pollution is the contamination of air with pollutants that are harmful to humans, animals, and the environment. It began to be a problem when humans discovered the uses of fire and then the amount of air pollution exponentially grew after the industrial revolution, and is still a problem even today. The largest causes of air pollution are from human activities such as burning of fossils fuels and manufacturing plants. There are ways that ordinary people can help contribute to prevent air pollution and its consequences that the world must face.
Lynch describes the environment as containing three factors: pressure, opportunity, and rationalization, which can lead some individuals into unethical behavior (Lynch & Santos, VW Emissions and the 3 Factors That Drive Ethical Breakdown, 2016). Volkswagen’s leadership also set aggressive goals while also making it clear to employees that failure was not an option. The eventual downfall of the Volkswagen diesel push into the United States market was based on claims that diesel was cleaner and provided more power than current
People on the opposing side argue that global warming and the affect on ice caps melting because of it is not a real issue. The opposing side states the global warming and the melting of the ice caps is a natural occurrence and not a man made one. “A study of the Earth’s climate 460-445 years ago found that an intense period of glaciation, not warming, occurred when CO2 levels were 5 times higher than today” (Is Human Activity). People argue that the global warming gas CO2 produced by man is not enough to cause the global warming blamed for polar ice caps to melt faster. This side points out there are natural areas like bodies of waters and forest that absorb the CO2 out of the atmosphere called carbon sinks.
No matter what the situation, speeding on the highway puts the lives of yourself and others at risk of causing car crashes, having a lack of reaction time, trying to show off and killing others as a result. Speeding is one of the most common laws broken on a daily basis without a consequence. The need for speed is what can cause a five-car pileup and cars running into the railing on the highway. The decisions we make

Pollution caused by crude oil and its petrochemical based products disrupt and alter the ecosystem balance. Incomplete combustion of crude oil leads to the production of greenhouse gases which causes acid rain and also accelerates climate change which is already having negative effect on the environment. Crude oil pollution poses a huge risk to the ecosystem if not properly managed because it enters the food web through the plant which is later transferred from one food chain to the other food chain (Sathishkumar et al. 2008). The strong persistence nature of crude oil and its total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) derivatives in air, water and land has attracted much attention from government and environmental stakeholder because accumulation of this pollution in plants and animal tissues leads to toxic, carcinogenic and mutagenic effects which invariably leads to death (Abd-Elsalam et al.
