It seems like money has bought over morality, who really gives the cold shoulder to a dying planet? Apparently companies like Koch Industries finds it amusing to do so. They are guilty of delaying renewable energy and advancements in stopping global warming by shushing everyone up with big piles of cash. Sadly, anyone can be forced to speak or can be put down with just a few bucks nowadays. Many fossil fuel industries tend to lie about clean renewable energy; the main lie is usually how it’s to expensive to use green energy and it’s much cheaper to stick to fossil fuels.
rationing Rationing is most commonly put with food, when rationing can apply to any like medicine, scarce resources and gasoline. Rationing has been happening forever, every country has had to ration supplies at some point. It could have been because of drought, a natural disaster or even war. Rationing doesn't only happen in developing countries, it can just as easily happen in a developed country. The last major rationing in the United States was the oil crisis during the cold war because of increased tensions with Iran, the U.S. government put a ration a gasoline only allowing people so much at a time.
This region of land has been set aside for the purpose of a wildlife reserve for the protection of many species of animals occupying the land. However, this region is thought to contain over ten billion barrels of recoverable oil, making it an interest to many for the development of this land. The decision to extract the natural resources has been fought over by many, making it a highly controversial topic. Drilling in ANWR is a controversial issue having pros that include the America’s dependency on foreign oil being lowered, no negative impacts on animals, and only a small portion of the area would used for exploration. Cons on the subject include the wildlife and environment being hurt or disturbed, the oil not being ready to be used for many years and not knowing the exact amount of oil present, and that it would be very expensive to do and the amount of oil believed to be found in ANWR is relatively small compared to the needs of America.
Government, as one of the most powerful administrations in the world, does have a significant amount of power that could be utilized in order to conserve these resources and benefit the economy, the country, and to an extent- the world. Robert Samuelson writes simply that if the government introduced anti-global warming laws, “fossil fuel prices [would] rise” and “consumers [would] quickly use less, and new supplies of ‘clean energy’ [would] magically materialize” (Source D). The amount of money it would take to “solve climate change, invest in a clean future, and save billions in imported oil”, would end up being around a dime per capita, per day. This low cost should be extremely appealing to the government, for “few things are more appealing in politics than something for nothing” (Source D). The government has already done a good job encouraging people to be more “green”, but the power they possess could improve the situation exponentially.
It would be foolish for any person to deny that alternative energy sources need to be researched, but until it is economically sound to make the switch the United States needs to run on something that is dependable and that we know will continue to work. The economic value of developing the mere 2,000 acres in the Coastal Plain in the ANWR region of Alaska would be immense and simply cannot be looked over. There would be hundreds of thousands of new jobs available for people in every state and the revenues earned by the American government would be huge. In a time where American citizens are in fear of a new great depression a 700,000+ need for new jobs in the market
Solar energy benefits outpace the concerns of drilling by a landslide. The time has come to put the drill aside and use are natural tools to energize our country. Coal, oil, and natural gas are the primary non-renewable energy sources being utilized in the United States today. These resources, also known as fossil fuels, are damaging the natural environment that we live in carrying great consequence. According to Klare (2010) “It may not seem as if we operate under such a philosophy today, but we do—one that extols growth over all other considerations, that privileges existing fuels over
Too much influence of America in the internal and external affairs of other countries has created a bad reputation of nation. America is now called a threat and not an ally. The interference of the UN in South Vietnam and to help them in a war against North Vietnam aggression has resulted in nothing. It is not because the deficiency of powers but because of the unreliable attitude of America. The super power wants to create stability in small and undeveloped Asian nations but do they have the time to think about the ways they are incorporating to set up their aim.
Utilize Natural Resources Intelligently The world is dependent upon oil and America is leading the way in oil consumption. Many people reject the idea that there is a finite supply of oil in the world and they advocate extracting oil from wherever it lies, at all costs. One of the places being considered right now is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). Drilling for oil in Alaska has been an issue of debate for over a decade. Proponents of Alaskan oil development argue it could reduce our dependence upon foreign nations and boost the economy.
There are an immense amount of trends that are very harmful to teen’s health; but most people overlook the dangers of having a sun-kissed tan. If a teenager is bronzed, he or she is said to have a “healthy” glow; however, recent studies show that the effects of overexposure to the UVA and UVB rays of the sun or tanning booth are more than skin deep. Tanning has been a consistent trend and an adequate confidence booster; but teens are often unaware of the potentially deadly consequences and the steps they can take to prevent them. Tanning is considered to be a great confidence booster. After a few days baking at the beach or a few sessions in the hottest tanning salon, the skin will ultimately be darker (or redder, depending on the skin type).
While the American government continues to reject the need to repeal prohibition on marijuana, the American people continue to suffer. The potential financial advantages of legalization are tremendous. Money and resources that are wasted on enforcement of current marijuana laws could easily be put to use in other much needed economic areas. Simply put, the desire of most Americans to enjoy marijuana's intoxicating "hi", combined with the numerous documented medicinal values, and the over 25,000 everyday products that can be made from the marijuana plant, and the vast amount of potential income from taxes, makes decriminalization and regulation by the federal government not just the right choice but the only choice. Since the Nixon administration
