"We have to do something about it. Glaciers are nature’s alarm clock, and it’s time for us to wake up. Can there be any doubt that the culprit is greenhouse gas, produced by man?" Lisa Simpson, an environmental activist, pleads for her class to change their ways for the good of the environment. Her real-world counterpart, Former Vice-President Albert Arnold Gore, is the face of the Global Warming awareness movement.
In his 2000 bid for the presidency Ralph Nader campaigned against the corporate powers dominance in the political landscape as well as the need for change in the manner of how presidential races are held. He also wanted universal healthcare, the legalization of hemp, and free universal education - meaning college would be free for every American citizen. Nader ran on a similar platform in 2004 and 2008. Opposition to the War in Iraq was one of the biggest issues in the 2004 campaign and Nader had always been at the forefront of this opposition. Nader has made it quite clear to his fellow citizens that he will always do his utmost to ensure that the rights of consumers are upheld and defended.
Write a summary of James Balog’s argument which you could use in an academic assignment. In his Ted Talk on the Extreme Ice Survey, Balog (2009) argued that the perception of global warming as a theory appeared to be misunderstood from the side of influences voices across the world. James Balog well-known, professional geographical photographer does strongly believe that modern art technologies may empower our understanding and shape our thinking for the safety of the nature. Beyond, Balog (2009) deem that the proposition drowned on art and science could of, once combined, bring a better knowledge and comprehension- from human parts; as the project `Extreme Ice Survey’ (2009). Throughout, this essay will discuss, with uses of examples, how Balog (2009) disputed his arguments in order to cogent TED audience and outward viewers on the issue of ‘climate changes’?
Through out her article Cravens highlights the environmental benefits of nuclear energy. While Cravens effectively reaches to her audience and gives credibility to her article, which fortifies her argument, she ultimately diminishes her strength with her failure to completely address some key issues about nuclear energy Through her ethos Cravens’ effective use of ethos gives her the creditability needed for people to listen to what she is saying. She starts off by showing her on credentials for writing this article. She reflects on how, through the research for her book, Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy, she changed her mind from opposing nuclear energy to endorsing it. By giving her readers this information, she is showing that she has done in depth research on the topic of nuclear energy, so they can trust her to give them correct information.
Now that global warming has been studied further, there is still debate over whether the increase in the greenhouse gases are caused by natural sources, such as volcanoes and forest fires, or if it is caused by man-made practices such as emissions from driving automobiles (David). The controversy first gained national attention in 2005 when former vice president Al Gore released the documentary An Inconvenient Truth. Gore’s documentary is a compilation of scientific research, theories, and facts. All of which serve to prove that human activity as the main culprit of global warming. Although the issue did not start to gain national attention until the early 2000s, scientists have been studying atmospheric gases and the effect that human consumption of fossil fuels has on the atmosphere and climate since the early nineteenth century (Rich).
If more people fight to force the government to make wiser energy decisions we can turn around global warming. Many communities are surrounded by nuclear energy plants or other harmful energy plants. This is a dilemma that local communities face when trying to fight global warming. Each individual can only do so much to fight these huge corporations and energy plants. The best thing we can do as a society is establish better laws for what is considered acceptable when creating energy.
Why Veterans are Important to our Nation’s History and Future The Real Heroes You may know a few. They are living among us, typical citizens, silent heroes, living quietly, continuing to make the world a better place. They fought for our country with great courage and admiration, and are willing to do so again in the name of freedom and righteousness. These are our veterans of this great nation, the United States of America, who are one of its closely treasured people. The future of our country depends on the soldiers we have now who will become veterans.
In this paper, I plan to analyze the underlying causes of climate change, and the consequences the earth faces. Not only that, but also, I plan to unravel the obscurities and speculations so that we can get to the truth of this environmental issue. Some might say that global warming is not an issue, but rather a natural occurrence. I have investigated driving forces of past climate change such as astronomical and earthly cycles that seem to support this. Furthermore, there are arguments that global warming is not even a threat as assumed by the majority.
Texts construct race as a natural category. Many representations generally describe the interests of dominant groups by defining other races as abnormal. Somewhere right now, there is someone being discriminated for the colour of their skin. Today’s society; you may say all you want about it being better than what is was like in the 1900’s to now but how much better is it really? Yes we have found many cures for severe illnesses and are now aware of Global Warming, which we are doing our best to prevent with renewable energy, but has anyone ever thought of the way people act throughout society?
But it is more difficult to find a proper and scientifically correct cause for all of this. How is this possible? The world should have been much warmer according to Al Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth”. Today’s climatologists are more than ever concerned with the human influences on the climate change. Should we support these environmentalists?
