Cassandra Wood Professor Moton English B1A: Online 24 April 2015 Week 14 Project Thesis: Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) practice abusive treatment towards animals to produce low cost food for financial gains, while these conditions pose a threat to animals, humans and the environment, consumers should boycott all industrialized meat and support their local free range farms until the CAFO’s starts practicing healthy humane farming. Outline: I. Introduction A. Factory farms are abusive to animals B. Factory farms are dangerous to the environment C. Factory farms are dangerous to humans health D. Thesis II.
It has caused us and our next generations loose the balance of the value in our lives. If everyone in the world adopts the Americans’ idea that becoming materialistic or rich is what we want to pursue for live better, only one earth is definitely not enough to support everything we need. It is urgent to bring back the enduring values on faith, family, responsibility, generosity and friendship to guide this country before we can not fix the balance. More importantly, the earth is already become worse than before. The environmental pollution in most countries is really bad, and natural calamities happen frequently.
Provide one action we as humans engage in that leads to the extinction of each of these components. Action affecting Lichens = Lichens depend on air and water for nutrients which is affected by things such as air travel and exhaust fumes. Action affecting Trees = People cutting down trees for useable items is one main way that leads to extinction. Action affecting Flowers = People are clearing off land in order to plant crops and trees Action affecting Bees = There is intensive farming being done all around the world to keep up with the supply and demand of food. As a result this eliminate food that bees pollinate from.
Whether on the western front or in no man’s land the soldiers are always fighting on earth, earth which is littered with dead bodies. On a literal level this is an easy way for earth to represent death but, on a not-so-literal level the earth can also symbolize death since the deceased are buried underground after they die. By representing both life and death the earth easily represents perverse nature as well. Since the men are frequently compared to animals and are shown to have animalistic behaviors the earth also symbolizes the soldiers’ dehumanization in a way that they are compared to animals and by doing that they are loosing the humanity in them. By being compared to animals as a whole they loose their individuality.
1983 DBQ Like any nation, America has historically relied heavily upon agriculture; however, differing from other nations is the unique set of problems agriculture has created through America’s brief history. It can even be argued agriculture was a catalyst for the Civil War; the South developing into a breadbasket, and the North developing into the manufacturing heartland of the nation; creating very distinct, almost alien cultures. A few decades after the Civil War, new problems were still popping up: chiefly that of discontent within agriculture. Farmers of the 1880s and the 1890s were having an increasingly difficult time. Mother Nature wrought her fury upon the poor farmer; through grasshoppers, floods, and droughts.
Over-production – Fewer products such as cars, consumer good etc were not being sold as factories were making more goods than Americans needed or could afford to buy. As the number of sells went down, the prices of goods also went down which meant that wages had to be kept low. When this did not work, industrialists had to resort to sacking workers, and because the workers did not have any more money, they could not afford luxury so factories continued to
instead, farming is the product of thousands of years of techniques that have evolved food production into what it is today. As farming began many of the people would still search for wild plants. Diamond discusses on page 107 that the Aboriginal Australians never technically farmed, however they “anticipated several elements of farming” by burning the landscape which they knew would then encourage the growth
Yet I think the worst part is the natural resources like trees that will be cut down to make room for the machinery and drilling as many of those have been there for years. Along with the trees and forest come the wildlife animals that have their home in the forest and depend on trees to survive. All these not to include the pollution that comes from all these machines and work that will be done in the
When scientists look at dirt today, they can tell a lot about what happened in the past. One thing that scientists have found while looking at soil samples from Meso-America is that at least three terrible droughts occurred between the years of 810 and 910 AD. During these droughts Mayan peasants may have panicked. Water became scarce and their lands began to go dry. The peasants may have worried because they were the ones who were responsible for growing corn, squash and beans for the entire city.
These roots grew in dense tangled clumps that were difficult to cut. The “Sod Buster” was invented in 1830 by John Deere and was adopted by many homesteaders very quickly. The homesteaders planted the crops of maize and wheat that they brought with them from the Eastern states. These were suited to the mild and damp climate there but not on the Great Plains which means because of having no crops their life on the Plains would be impossible to sustain and also no crops meant there wasn’t any food for the homesteaders. Cattle and buffalo were also a problem.
