I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills. Chris McCandless was very courageous for ditching all his possessions to take a trip in the wilderness. “Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” I do agree with Callarman because I think Chris was a little crazy for doing these actions. He was a very courageous for doing this because not many people would take a random trip to the wilderness because people would rather be in
During most winters, it is covered by ice on 40 to 95 percent of its surface, but it rarely freezes completely because of its depth. Located on the edge of Wisconsin, the lake extends to Ontario, Canada, and west to the border of Minnesota. The name "Superior" alludes to the larger size, as it is the largest Great Lake, and to its more northern location. During the Colonial period, the lake provided a major shipping avenue for furs and remains a hub of shipping
One specific example of this has to do with the proposed mining in northern Minnesota. Polymet, a large mining company, has proposed a big nickel and copper mine, but first they must meet extremely strict requirements and acquire many approvals. Much of the concern has to do with water contamination. If there is any way that processes from the mining cause water contamination, then the mining will not be approved. The protection of Minnesota geology is extremely important, especially water.
Over fishing is a huge problem that needs to be stopped. 2. I will explain what overfishing is doing to families, what we can do to help the situation, and how to repopulate the fisheries. 1. Millions of people rely on fishing for their livelihood and nutritional needs and they need help.
The Sierra Club is currently one of, if not the biggest, environmental organizations. If it were to suddenly collapse, then America’s wildlife could be in danger. Without any other organizations with the power the Sierra Club has accumulated, the government would take federal action to possibly damage certain national parks. For example, in 1920, the government had plans to flood and dam the Grand Canyon. However, the Sierra Club protested this plan strongly, and ultimately prevented it from happening.
Settlers went into searching father to discover it was found below earth’s surface that requires more digging deep within the mountains, often most difficult gold extraction. This often requires explosives, underground drilling, or underground tunnel system. This was dangerous for the settlers due to the fact underground tunnels are unpredictable with their high temperatures and collapsibility. The last method was hydraulic mining, this was used when gold discoveries began to subside, settlers needed to search for gold they dug even deeper. This required new technology, however this technology caused more destruction than good to California’s
A pipeline would separate the Sioux tribe, potentially damage the casino industry, our source of entertainment and many tribes source of income. The government’s mishaps don’t stop with casinos. The Sioux do not deserve for their water to be contaminated. Originally the government intended for the pipeline to pass through Bismarck, yet the risk of contamination in states capitol lead to relocation through reservations (Sidder). Unlike the BP oil spill that affected many animals, an oil spill of the North Dakota Access Pipeline would affect humans.
Jackson is basically lying saying it will enable them to pursue happiness in their own way but the natives didn’t get there own way since the US signed the treaty of New Echota that took away the land. The natives were constantly fighting back against there removal. In the Cherokee letter protesting the treaty the stated, "The instrument in question is not the act of our nation; we are not parties to its covenants; it has not received the sanction of our people." So saying it will enable them in their own way is a complete lie the government was using to make it sound like the Indian removal act was a good thing. The US never got the ok from the natives to give up the
An invasion has been underway that has continued to endanger much of Americas ecosystems. To call a species “non-native” or “invasive” does not sound too threatening, but the truth is they are one of the primary threats to native wildlife in an area. An invasive species can be any kind of living organism—an amphibian, mammal, plant, insect, fish, fungus, bacteria, or even an organism’s seeds or eggs—that is not native to an ecosystem and which causes harm to the environment, the economy or even, human health (Carroll). Species have always been restless, continually testing their boundaries, but at the same time we have a global system that makes the transportation of plants and animals almost effortless on their part. One specific example
Throughout the centuries, humans have been attempting to find a way to power homes, cars, and other luxuries in the most efficient way possible. Coal and oil were two major sources that begin being exploited during the industrial revolution. Both have caused great controversy over the years from lawsuits to strikes. A new way to drill oil, hydraulic fracturing, was discovered and was an efficient means of drilling until its effects became prevalent. Also, when coal began to run out, a new method called mountaintop removal took hold, but continues to damage the earth.
They have created many jobs and taken very few from our citizens. They use our social services, but also pay into our tax system. I believe the benefits outweigh the costs. They are helping America become stronger. They are actually helping employers because the labor is more affordable.
It’s not realistic because by doing that they’re exposing millions of people to the harmful toxins of the lake beds of the Sea and endangering wildlife. Accelerating the drying process is the last thing we need. Also, there is not enough funds for the long-term restoration of the Sea. The Salton Sea Task Force’s recommendation is to restore between 9,000 and 12,000 acres of shoreline habitat by 2020 using available state funds. Their plan is realistic because it involves using many the state has, which makes it a more obtainable goal in the long
The buffalo chips would be too wet to make bread or coffee out of it. The Indian Territory was also dangerous to go across. They saw us as trespassers and angry men would attack us (Document C). They had ferocious dogs that would end our cattle’s life and ours. It was a risk to go through Indian Territory but it is the fastest and best-calculated route to go on.
From the first glance, the rise of the federal minimum wage is beneficial to everyone. It will improve living standards and the country’s overall economy, create more job opportunities, and reduce the poverty rate. However, after analyzing some economic theories and reading presumption made by qualified economists the idea of increasing the federal minimum wage will not look as good as before. Oppositely to benefits the raise may adversely affect standard of living, cause layoffs and fewer hirings, or has negative effect on poverty rate. Both points of view show the significant impact that the raise of the federal minimum wage may cause and both of them are partly correct.
