There is no mistaking that the target audience of the film is children, but there are many serious underlining themes found in The Lorax that are directed toward the mature population. Through this great example of the dystopian genre, Dr. Seuss is sending a clear message: we must be more environmentally conscience or we will suffer great consequences. Outside of the city limits of “Thneedville” was a luscious, thriving forest ecosystem that was the home to many creatures and critters. That is, until a man known as the “Once-ler” set up shop in the middle of the forest and set about producing ‘thneeds’, a clothing accessory made of Pickard 2 tufts from ‘Truffula Trees’. The Once-ler initially harvested the tufts by cutting down the Truffula Trees, but was visited by the “Lorax”, the self-proclaimed guardian of the forest.
While there is no crystal clear answer to the age-old “real versus fake” Christmas tree debate, most environmentalists, “tree huggers” among them, would agree that real trees are the better choice, at least from a personal and public health standpoint. Some might make a case for fake trees, because they are re-used every year and thus don’t generate the waste of their real counterparts. But fake trees are made with polyvinyl chloride (or PVC, otherwise known as vinyl), one of the most environmentally offensive forms of non-renewable, petroleum-derived plastic. Fake Christmas Trees and Cancer Furthermore, several known carcinogens, including dioxin, ethylene dichloride and vinyl chloride, are generated during the production of PVC, polluting neighborhoods located near factory sites. Most of those factory sites are actually in China, where 85 percent of the fake trees sold in North America originate.

We need to figure out what part of our lives we must forego and what ideologies we must abandon so that we can protect our societies and our civilizations. McKibben says that his only fear is that the reality he talks about in his book, and the reality more and more evident among us, will be for some an excuse to give up. Instead what we need is the opposite, increased engagement. Some engagement will be local, at the community level, and other global, to force and draw dramatic action. He says that if our goal was to preserve the world we were born into, we have failed.
These trees and other forests are disappearing. (Doc A, map). The following are ways I want this money to stop deforestation in America so it can become as environmentally conscious as possible: set borders up for loggers, protect old trees by making them landmarks, turn a forest into a National park, and put a tax on logging. Trees must be

Hollar Professor Moore English 1301 April 10, 2014 Lungs Killed- Readers Respond 6 World Wildlife Federation Earth organization provides a picture of a large green field filled with living trees. The shape in the middle of the field looks like a pair of lungs with one side shown as big trees still standing and the other side filled with dirt and trees being cut down.

They believe that non lethal control is sufficient enough to deal with the rising coyote issue. Non lethal control consists of educating people about what to do, and what not to do to avoid attracting coyotes. They believe simple precautions such as fencing, feeding pets indoors(never leave dog food outside), neighborhood sanitation, etc can help decrease the chances of coyote attacks. According to Laura Simon, director of humane society “lethal approach is misguided, knee-jerk, especially if alternatives such as keeping pet food indoors,spraying coyotes with hoses shooting them with rubber bullets and paintballs could be more effective”(Barboza par.10). She sees lethal as excessive and believes that other steps(non lethal) are beneficiary.

They are suggesting that a single event of tragic attack is not a good reason to kill lots of coyotes with no serious boundaries. Coyotes are predators replacing
