#1) Source A is responding to the issue of how would being a locavore would help us ‘survive’. Survive, meaning decreasing greenhouse pollutants that are warming our globe, global warming can raise the temperature to the point where humans will eventually suffer the consequences like dying or/and an increase in temperature. Source A argues we should take care of our economy first by purchasing from local food markets. By buying from U.S based farms, we decrease our carbon footprint from not buying foreign countries; which have to export loads of produce on planes to the U.S. #2) The root of our problem is the U.S relying its produce source from foreign nations, instead of supporting farmers located in the U.S. This is a problem because exporting goods from one country to another leads to more
These people live in poorer conditions and come from a country that grants them less opportunities. If these citizens are proven to be more optimistic than Americans, it is clear that there is an issue with how we view the world. In America, many individuals stress more about the gap between the rich and poor; who has it all and who doesn’t. Graham continues to state that “being poor in a very wealthy and unequal country-which eschews social support for those who fall behind- results in especially high levels of stress and desperation”. As someone is struggling to keep up with society’s expectations along with many other struggles, it may be difficult to remain positive.
air pollution is dangerous to the way we live because it’s harmful chemicals that are oils gasses and other chemicals. air pollution is controversial because people believe that it’s still out there harming the way we live and harming the planet. Industrialized countries have worked to reduce levels of sulfur dioxide, smog, and smoke in order to improve people's health. Volcanic eruptions from volcanos is also endangering the life style by balking the sun and putting out ash and smoke. Pollution released into the air damages the ozone layer in Earth’s atmosphere.
Colleges should be more affordable We all have heard the saying “money can’t buy happiness.” This is true to a certain extent, Many people don’t have enough money to go college for jobs of their interest causing them to live unhappily and not make as much money. “Without a decent job with decent pay, people will fall into poverty. This is mostly has to do with financial situations. Tons of people aren't able to afford to go to college and get the practice they need. Colleges should be more affordable instead of over charging.
Although the film was sensationalized and presented an unrealistic time scale some of the information was true. In lab I learned that the climate can be “broken” and takes time to repair itself. According to lab the excessive burning of fossil fuels thins the ozone layer creating a “hole”. The thinning does not properly reflect the solar radiation. More radiation is being allowed to the surface and eventually ice caps are
Naomi Klein's novel, This Changes Everything highlights the most imperative actions that need to be taken towards climate change. Klein discusses that as a society we overlook the causes and the changes that need to happen to the systems that are making the crisis inevitable. She encourages formulating a mass movement for climate change that supports changes in the economic system. Klein’s main argument is that, most people think that climate change is a threat, “we have not done the things that are necessary to lower emissions because those things fundamentally conflict with deregulated capitalism” which is the “reigning ideology” of our time (p.18). The purpose of the book is that Klein is supplying society with a challenge: are we on the right path, are we doing the right things for ourselves and for the future, or is this the best we can be?
Despite the abundance of evidence that exists to prove that climate change does exist, there are still scientists and scholars who are skeptical about the claim. A major argument against climate change existing is that climate has changed before so human beings cannot be the reason for climate change - 33% of Americans agree to this statement ("Americans’ Knowledge Of Climate Change"). This is true that the climate has changed before. Greenhouse gases were involved in most of the climate changes in Earth’s history. When the gases in the Earth’s atmosphere were reduced, the climate on Earth became colder.
(Janda 332) The issue is brought to attention a lot by protestors who want the government to give jobs to U.S. citizens rather than handing them off to foreign countries for a cheaper price. The American public doesn’t take into account that the relations we build with the trade consumers of the U.S. can have a dynamic effect when it comes to future endeavors. One of the most crucial assignments our president has as a world leader is crisis management. Foreign aid is one crisis that has been one of the biggest problems associated with the downfall of the American economy. The budget alone in 2011,
I agree, it is factual that we are facing severe environmental challenges. Even if the skeptics do not believe in the global warming, it is undeniable that the air and water pollution are caused by human activities. It is unhelpful to argue who is right, who gets more evidences or who eventually wins. If people just ignore the negative environmental impacts and do not implement any practical plans to deal with, our future generation will definitely suffer from
When it comes to comparing the past with the present, the idea of globalisation is deliberated quite often. The twentieth century coined the term ‘globalisation’ as international organisations were introduced, aiming to reduce trade barriers and maintaining healthy global trade relations. On the other hand, the twenty-first century induced a fear of globalisation as companies were outsourcing their production allowing certain societies to continue development while others remained constant. In June 2016, Brexit (Britain’s exit) took place because the majority of the United Kingdom (UK) voted to leave the European Union (EU). This event exhibits people disrupting the political mandate by voting against cultural and economic globalization.
