Either way, all life is demolished, or so they believe. An example would be document C. In the Bible, God comes before Noah and warns him about the Flood he has decided to bring upon the world. His reason being: the world is full of lawlessness, and all life shall be destroyed along with the earth. In the Epic of Gilgamesh the gods decide to end man kind because they are extremely loud and are preventing the God’s from sleep. The reason for destruction in Gilgamesh’s story seems to be more irrational than the Bible’s story but in result, life is still abolished.
This lead to the river channel in the village itself not being able to hold enough water and ascending from this, the flood later occurred. On the days leading up to the flood itself, The North of Cornwall received a greatly higher than average amount of rainfall for August. Boscastle received 25% more than expected which consequently lead to saturated soils all around. Because of this, water was no longer able to infiltrate into the ground and therefore travelled as run-off over the land, meaning it reached the river a lot faster. Not only was the soil
What is the sign given by the god after the flood? I didn’t read about a sign that was given… 11. What is the god’s attitude toward the flood after it happens? Ishtar blamed Enlil for killing her people and said that he could not approach the offering. Enili became very angry at the other gods when he saw the boat.
But, on the bible the flood was intended for all of mankind with the exception of Noah and his family and due to man’s wickedness to Yahweh (God), but in the epic of Gilgamesh it was intended only for one city and all mankind and due to excessive man noise that disturb the Gods. In the Bible Yahweh had chosen Noah due to his righteousness but in the epic of Gilgamesh an assembly of gods chose a person named Utnapishtim in a dream but for no reason given. Both men were ordered to build a boat but Noah, which was building the boat only with the help of his family and took him 100 years due to the larger size, try to convince the people to change their evil ways and to repent to avoid the judgment, but by the contrary, Utnapishtim was told to lie to the neighbors so they could help him build a smaller boat in only seven days without knowing the truth. Both of the boats had many compartments inside, covered by tar with pitch on the outside, at least one window and only one form of entry. Noah’s boat was allowed to harbor family members only but Utnapishtim had his Family and few other people that helped him build the boat.
Shrimp eaters must have gone through a phase where they are reluctant to buy shrimp “after the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the spill that eventually spewed 206 million gallons (780 million liters) of oil from BP’s blown-out well” (Bureau and Mcgill 2010 Pg: 3). Even though only “7% of all shrimp consumed in the U.S. is caught in the Gulf of Mexico.” People still questioned the safety of eating Gulf coast Shrimp (Boyle 2010: 1). The oil spill brought a lot of fear in what is going to happened to the environment , to wildlife, to seafood industry, and to the very livelihood of those people in Louisiana’s and Mississippi’s coasts. The domestic shrimp, in particular, “has been subject to a seemingly continuous stream of bad luck with the 2005 and 2008
People suffered from stomach disorders, their pets and other animals were losing hair and in one case an entire well exploded. Fox also calculated that each well was used for around 4 to 5 times and that each of such wells required approximately of 1 billion gallons of water mixed with chemicals. Moreover, only half of that water was turning back which means that the rest remained under the surface literally poisoning the land. Representatives of respective companies denied the negative effect they had on environment, but at the same time none of them was brave enough to taste the water from local wells. Later on Fox discovered that gas companies decided to extract gas from people’s wells since it was too obvious that a lot of natural gas came out of them.
Cecilia Tinajero L. English H. The novel The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck is based on the hardships one family in Oklahoma faced during the dust bowl. The weather was harsh, there was a huge drought covering about ten states, and strong dust storms blew in.

Question 1. (a) The article states, that every so often the pollution level in the Nile rises, Halting drinking water stations in many Egyptian cities. This has led to many protests over the government being to slow to resolve the problem. The cause of the rising pollution has been put down to several factors including a lower than usual level in the river ,fish farms and direct pollution into the rosetta branch of the river. They can no longer use extra water from the high dam to wash away pollution, as this would leave a water shortage during the summer months.
In fact, scientists report that this problem is so serious that virtually all seafood now contains plastic. We’re fast running out of space for landfills—especially near cities. Seaside cities have been dumping trash into their oceans for decades to circumvent the problem, but with widespread marine ecological collapse, this is no longer a viable option. Other things include air pollution from factories. B.
