Society will always depict whether you are or aren't good enough. Often times people will make the right choices but it's society that is so fast to judge and tell us what the right and wrong decisions are. A fantastic example from Frankenstein is when the ‘Monster” stumbles across the girl drowning in the river. The Monster did what any other good samaritan would do and dropped everything to try and save this little girl that so desperately needs help. After safely bringing the child ashore, The monster spots a man walking towards him.
Today’s levels of biodiversity on Easter Island can be explained in terms of complexity and disturbance because the Easter Island population unknowingly overexploited their island’s natural resources because they were isolated from other islands. 6. I believe that Diamond’s comparison of the civilization on Easter Island with the entire planet is justified because we are aware of the damage we are creating on Earth, while the population of Easter Island had no idea that they were overexploiting Earth’s natural resources. 7. The past civilization on Easter Islands, symbolize today’s human population on Earth because we are also destroying Earth’s recourses through overpopulation and overexploitation.
In this week 's reading, the texts that stood out to me would have to be the article “In Defense of Literary Adaptation and Cultural Production” and the X-files Frankenstein adaptation “The Postmodern Prometheus”. The latter being the first X-Files episode I ever watched, suffice to say it was an interesting adaptation. Being a sociology major, after watching the episode and then reading the article I genuinely became intrigued with literary interpretation through generations. As I’ve learned in previous classroom settings storytelling was brought to life for multiple reasons. The most prominent reason which comes to mind would be the spread of cultural knowledge whether it be language, rituals, education, entertainment, or warnings of past
Human cloning is one of the newest topics that is changing the world because of how wasteful, harmful they are.The human clone will cause many issues that would waste supplies, and hurt humans.The first idea of a clone was brought up in 1866 when Gregor mendel discovers genetics and how it multiplies, which he later discovered would cause harm to people in the future.This harm is coming now now and this is why human cloning needs to be eliminated because, it affects everyday people, our resources, like medicine. Also human clone would keep expanding causing a total outburst. The first time people realized cloning was possibly was in 1866 according to cloning historical timeline, but ever since then the idea has gotten much bigger. human cloning is an identical copy of
One of these instances is in the Chapter Needless Havoc it is about the invasion of the Japanese Beetle that found its way to America. The Government tried to spray pesticides to get rid of them but all they did was infected all the human beings and domestic animals in the area and still had the beetle crawling around. This is just one example Carson uses throughout the book of the government and organizations who misuse the pesticides and dangerous chemicals and end up harming much more than the target. Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring” as a whole was a major success. Soon after she published the book it was so powerful and awakening to the people that many laws came about that banned the use of DDT and put regulations on pesticide use.
The documentary ‘Trashed, with Jeremy Irons’ focuses on how the waste management industry is having deleterious consequences on human and animal life on this planet. By using case studies from around the world, Jeremy Irons takes the viewer on a narrated journey from Lebanon, to the UK, to Vietnam, and to the North Pacific, all with the objective of demonstrating how the ways in which humans get rid of waste: through landfills, incinerators, and oceanic dumping, are harming human health, destroying people’s livelihoods, and adversely affecting animals’ welfare. Irons concludes this dismal narration of the anthropogenic harms of the waste industry with an uplifting look at the positive changes that grassroots organizations are effectuating in the disposal of waste. Ultimately, this film is incredibly successful in getting its point across in its 93 minutes running time; that humans must change the way in which we deal with waste. This success can be attributed to how skillfully Jeremy Irons exploits
In this fiction author is more about to say that human kind intervention in nature is the reason for the natural world disaster. In the same way nature and humankinds are closely related and cannot be separated; or cannot deny the presence of one another. At the Anthropocene epoch, humankind seems to have control over the nature in some extent, despite that nature wait its time and respond how it’s been treated. At this epoch “human-kind has caused mass extinctions of the planet and animal species, polluted the oceans and altered the atmosphere” (Stromberg, np). Moreover in “The Mutant at Horn Creek” the author shows how humankind altered the natural world and its effect in the

All over the globe, vulnerable ecosystems are in a fight against invasive species. These invaders threaten global biodiversity and negatively impact ecological systems. They tend to tip the natural balance and wreak havoc on native species, disrupting the vital interactions of endemic flora and fauna and putting human health and economies at risk. Island ecosystems are particularly vulnerable; as they are often hotspots of biodiversity found nowhere else on the planet. Removing these invaders as a solution to this has, time and time again, been proven a costly and challenging task.
Darwin, after traveling the world and gaining a great amount of data, introduced the idea of evolution. Though evolution to this day is still debated upon between the religious and scientific communities, it is one of the greatest and most compelling discoveries in recent memory. In the year 1859, Darwin published On the Origin of Species and the world would never be the same. He went into great depth on natural selection and how species could evolve over time in order to create an entirely new species. His theories would predate all ideas that God created man.
While learning about the creation myths, one can point out numerous similarities between them. Although during the time there was no possible way for people to communicate, we wonder how they became so similar. We call these similarities motifs. Three of the major motifs that I have identified are: Humans were made of organic materials, it took multiple attempts to create them, and humans were created to look after the earth. I feel these motifs are the most important, that is why I decided to write about them, because they explain many of the questions we have today, such as; how we began populating the Earth and why we should take care of it.
In the second article "Fracking Threatens Everyone" it is stated "Fracking remains a dangerous practice that poses a threat even if it is done correctly and is carefully monitored" so it seems that the author wants people to stop Fracking because it generates dangers. It is stated "sources of drinking water can be ruined and all different types of pollution can happen in a second" which poses a great threat to many places. For example, the pollution can enter streams and rivers and kill whatever is in it, and harm even more wildlife. It says "This makes fracking a gamble for communities and individuals who may be tempted by the large amounts of money being offered to those who allow their land to be used for fracking" and the author
My opinion on the video is that we need to find ways to prevent the wide spread of acidity that is increasing over time across our earth. The acidity doesn 't just effect the fish but it effects human beings. Just as the acidity hurt Mark and Sues business, it could hurt other business that are also involved with the oceanic wild
With any resource that we remove from the earth, we risk hurting people and many other things in the process. Hearing that these people were having to live off of contaminated water due to the chemicals that were inappropriately disposed was no surprise
When we think of propaganda, thoughts of dictators swaying their civilians to believe in a wrongful cause or which leads to a biased opinion. These tactics eventually collapse on themselves when the truth comes to light, but propaganda tactics are still being used today so oil companies and gray infrastructure advocates can continue to destroy the environment. Conservatives, along with their news networks such as Fox, use propaganda to make viewers believe environmentalist 's are whiney liberals who don’t get what they want, and need to get over it. This is in fact not the truth; when environmentalists come across a barricade in their path to success they climb over it and continue to find ways to protect the environment and spread the benefits of green infrastructure all around the world. After viewers are swayed to think negatively of advocates for green infrastructure they are given a spew of biased information such as climate change being a myth, oil companies helping the people, and protesters protecting their right of free speech.
