By adding humor, specific diction, and concessions Pollan can make his argument in why we, as a society, should bother to do something about climate change. In the article "Why Bother? ", Michael Pollan discusses the issues of climate change and why individuals should do something about it. Pollan states his claim of wanting to alter climate change when he says "So do you still want to talk about planting gardens? I do.
Because of this debate, I got to see his toxic impact on the modern world. Debating started off with each position getting a chance to speak or retaliate on what the other side had to say. My group, the villain side, had less than a third a side of the paper to make up for evidence. The hero side, had more than two pages. If you balance this ratio, it is common sense to see who would’ve won the argument.
“Why Bother” Michael Pollan’s essay “Why Bother” claims both sides of the argument of why people should take action to change their daily lives that will help the environment or if it is a wasted effort to try to change the things that have been done. Pollan repeatedly asks the reader a specific question throughout the essay: Why bother? Why bother slowing down global warming? Why bother walking to and from to make one’s self carbon footprint better? He asks these questions over and over to make the reader engage and think about the environment.
By planting a community garden, it could make the buildings look welcoming. Also, when a community garden is placed where places looked sad, it could help people who do not have any food get food, so they would not starve, and that is another big impact that a community garden can have on a person and the environment. A community garden does not have to be planted just help people. A community
Evidently, that we can be independent of God. ’The religious sentiment will compensate us for all our losses.’ But there aren’t any losses for us to compensate. (17.206) In this quote, Mustapha Mond argues that there simply is no need for God in a society with no fear nor unhappiness. “You can only be independent of God while you’ve got youth and prosperity”, Mustapha’s choice of words, youth and prosperity, symbolizes happiness and success. He explains these features to be key to the independence of God since age, unhappiness and fear all draw man closer to what is Godly and divine.
This provides a great opportunity to provide green spaces in these sections, particularly in the low income and manufactured home parks. These spaces could be used for growing spaces and create a “significant portion of produce” for residence who have less of ability to provide fresh produce. It could also bring neighbors together, build social capital and promote empowerment of residents. (Yuen,
He states, “we must look at the root and not to the branches of the government, not to the politicians runs by corporations. We are the root, we are the foundation”(lines 73-76),which utilizes parallel structure. Prince Ea wants to bring forth the power of nature, saying “whatever you’re fighting for, racism, poverty, feminism, gay rights, or any type of equality. It won’t matter in the least, because if we don’t all work together to save the environment, we will be equally extinct.”(lines 84-89). Epanalepsis is displayed when Prince Ea says the final word of the poem, “sorry”(line 90).
Gawain is courteous to no end, even asking for permission to “abandon [his] bench and stand by [Arthur]” (Pearl Poet l. 344) so he may risk his own life instead of his kings to abide by the Green Knights game. He even humbly states that he “[is] the weakest” (l. 354) and that it would be the least lost of he was to parish which is untrue. Gawain is also extremely courteous when he is denying the wife’s attempts to seduce him saying he is “a knight unworthy” (l.1245). He plays a game of wits as he must not offend her advances but at the same time must not let the wife win the “game” because then he would have to lay with her and that would be uncourteous to his host, Lord Bertilak. The only time Gawain faults in his courteousness is when he refuses to acknowledge the agreement he made with Lord Bertilak which was “whatever [Lord Bertilak] win[s] in the wood shall at once be [Gawain’s] and whatever gain [Gawain] may get [he] shall give in exchange” (ll.
Mankind will only survive by living with adversity, not with perfection. Humans seek success but true growth comes from the struggles faced obtaining it. Without the challenge, mankind and nature itself withers away in boredom and sterility. Humans, as with all organisms in nature, survive by adapting to challenge, not by the lack of them. The narrator in Wallace Stegner’s “Crossing Into Eden” finds that paradise is no place for humans because it is too perfect and does not offer the adversity mankind requires to exist.
This would also reduce the population density in the cities. They would be able to prosper in the village itself without having to think about migrating somewhere for their livelihood. Rural development in simple terms can be defined as the process of improving the quality of life and economy in the remote and rural parts of the country. These rural areas may be isolated and sparsely populated, but, in most cases, they offer a picturesque natural setting with a rich culture. These areas have generally been dependent on agriculture and natural resources for their economic upturn.
Grocery stores and local farms can now deliver fresh produce to families in neighborhoods where stores are not available or transportation is not accessible. Also, companies like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh would be able to deliver fresh and healthy food. Although, one drawback would be cost as this service might be out of reach for certain families, however, government agencies could step in to subsidize the expense knowing a healthy sociality could reduce medical expenditure in the
Organic farmers don’t use the harmful pesticides which are the main cause of the loss of bees. If you buy their produce they will be able to keep doing it which allows for them to be able to provide a better environment for the bees that then helps them be able to produce the crops! You can go to local farmers markets and to talk to the farmers about how they grow their produce and you could even ask them how what they do supports biodiversity and bees.
