By reducing our use of technology we will be more aware of how our actions affect other species and we can tailor our actions to benefit them rather than harm them. Singer’s statement of every species being considered equally can also extend to plants. While they do not experience suffering, they can be considered our equals to an extent. They are living organisms and do require certain things, like water and sunlight, to be kept alive. This means that we should treat plants with a certain amount of respect such as not cutting them all down or destroying environments for our benefit because plants are living and do benefit us in ways such as keeping animals alive and providing the world with
New York City is one of the places that has the most advanced technology in the whole entire world. It would make sense that the author chooses New York as the setting because the presence of technology would help make the story more interesting to read and to interpret. Based on the information we are provided with, we could determine that this story is taking place in the future but we can’t really determine the exact time it takes place. We could also verify that this story takes place after a war because we know that no one lives in the east. One of the main causes that could lead to the east being empty of human life is if there was an atomic destruction such as a bomb being dropped on that area.
So, I thought he would be more for the middle class which was more of the work force at that time. However, we were in a cold war and I thought he was the type of person and spokesman that could help the situation. But also looking back, he came from a very wealthy family so he couldn’t really be controlled by money and had the ability that he couldn 't be bought. Of course I was only in my late teens, therefore I didn’t look at the election from a political standpoint. I was more looking at it from the age he was and that he would be more concerned about our country for awhile and not concerned about that time period”(Schulze).
The Industrial Revolution after the Civil War, also known as the Second Industrial Revolution transformed America in many ways. Although, most of these innovations were improvements on inventions from the First Industrial Revolution. Through experimentation, new discoveries and inventions in energy, transportation, and communication would reshape America’s future entirely. One way the Second Industrial Revolution altered America, was through new sources of energy.
The reading assignments for this week has been very educative about the environment and making it a better place for living. In this written assignment, I will examine some of the ethical issues related to population growth and their effect to the environment. Also, I will propose solutions to these problems base on the reading material available for this Unit. But before I continue, I wish to introduce us to environmental ethics and its definition which I think it is very important for us to understand so as to know our role to play in this beautiful planet. Environmental ethics is the discipline in philosophy that studies the moral relationship of human beings to, and also the value and moral status of, the environment and its non-human contents
Even with some flaws in it, I would have as signed it in hopes of it to improve the lives of many. Many colonists suffered under Britain 's regime and were abused of their resources. To help these people, it would be necessary to have

Le Guin’s philosophical short story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” brings to light the unvarnished truth of how society’s success is fundamentally based on the unceasing sufferings of others in order for the greater majority to prosper. Similarly to how Kanye West says in his song “Take One for the Team,” “Your girl a queen, my girl a thing, you know what though, I’ma take this one for the team;” this can be related to the situation of the one suffering child in Omelas. The feebly neglected child hidden away from the populace is starved to only half a bowl of cornmush a day, can barely speak, and is abandoned to continuously hunker in gruesome conditions of its own feces and filth. The emaciated child is involuntarily forced to take one
We must make the most to conserve, recycle and reuse whenever possible because the natural resources on our planet earth are limited. One of the most efficient ways to support recycling is to purchase products made from recycled materials. Maybe by now, you are not aware of how important this act can make a change to the world. However, the effort involves not only recycling existing products, but purchasing products that have already been recycled. Today, you will notice a lot products that are made from recyclable materials thanks to a strong push in green movement recent years.
And Loewen further states how textbooks minimize other expeditions and how those explores are no where near praised as much as Columbus. Rather textbooks, seem to act as if expeditions began in the 1400’s in Europe but they didn’t. As Loewen states, “Most textbooks make no use of primary sources. A few incorporate brief extracts that have been carefully selected or edited to reveal nothing unseemly of the Great Navigator.” (p.63).
Our increase in technology has also made us more aware of the damage we have caused. Our ecological conscience is still being developed with time, but it is still an unpopular way of
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
In 2005, 140 countries signed a treaty to reduce their country’s greenhouse-gas emissions (Source A). There are numerous ways to go about this but the best option is to use more renewable resources. The main cause of global warming is CO2 gas being released into the atmosphere and almost 75% of that gas comes from breaking down fossil fuels (Source A). Using renewable resources in place of the fossil fuels would be cleaner and lead to less gas being released into the atmosphere. With technology growing like it is today, finding different ways to use cleaner resources should be easier than ever before.
In this way, the majority of the nation, if not the world, can instantly participate in slowing climate change. Alternative energy innovations for the consumer would require proper advertising to be successful. Popular advertising techniques in the twentieth century included relating products to the concept of freedom, and many incorporated liberty in their brand names. Throughout the history of the United States, it has been proven that freedom sells. In a broader sense, Americans are conditioned to equate anything labeled with freedom or liberty as being patriotic and supporting their country.
