Rainier, or any other spectacular landform, even if they have not visited there, and brought to a calm. These thoughts he argues are what makes us as people whole. The wilderness can be used to measure against the man made world, a “scientific yardstick.” Throughout the entire piece he is arguing that the importance is not what we can actually see or touch, but what we think of and how we think of the wild. This letter is being written to inform them of what would be missing without the wilderness. Those who think fondly of the Grand Canyon or the Everglades and have never been there are merely working from the idea, but those who have been there know what it has to offer and therefore receive the calming and sobering state of mind Stegner refers to.
Products of industrialization such as sewage runoff can pollute the water, damaging aquatic ecosystems and reducing the ability of fish to reproduce. This in turn creates a chain effect where other so that other aquatic life cannot be sustained as a result. Such repercussions of industrialization then spark not a communion with nature, but a dramatic call for environmental repair and preservation. Thus, we should value the environment in order to preserve the world for current and future generations The world provides basic resources for survival. Therefore, the intrinsic value of the environment can be found in the resources it can provide for the human race.
But above all else, sustainable ecotourism requires careful planning ”. Without this planning, ecotourism is doing more harm that good. I will show how these tourist developers are putting huge strains on the environment and how the effects of this behavior will eventually leave the land with the inability to cope with the drastic changes. I believe with carefully planned ecotourism development and rules and regulations, we can make ecotourism and the environment blend simultaneously. First, the tourist developers are adding increased pressure to the limited natural resources, especially in places... ... middle of paper ... ...ions to stop all this destructive behavior.
Without limits to our consumption, catastrophic consequences are inevita-ble for the environment and those who inhabit it. Such af-ter-affects of technological misuse include global warming, deforestation, pesticide poisoning, ozone depletion, acid rain, and species loss. Hence, solutions to remedy these by-products of limited consumption are the basis for con-troversy among people in present day society. Moreover, if the theories of modern ecology and sus-tainability (or lack there of) hold true, the ramifications of this ideology become global. Dobson creatively illus-trates in his book that there are not any simple solutions to correcting the shadowy future that industrialism is be-stowing upon us.
As environment issues presented by scientists, governments around the world start to give highly attention on the environmental protection, but there are many challenges in implementing environmental protection policies. Some of the top environmental concerns are air pollution, climate changing and trash waste. Although people started to aware the horrible consequences due to polluted environment, an efficient life, people apathy toward ecosystem and human's unlimited desires for a confortable life have created obstacles for the world to protect the environment. An efficient life is one of the issues that prevents the government in the world to put full effort into protecting the environment. There is a trade off between a country’s development and environmental policy.
The wild may sound like a horrible place, but the wild is undeniably beautiful. After this experience, the wild to me means more than just a place that is uncorrupted to the human hand because humans are a part of wilderness. If I could sit in a rock connecting with wilderness without disrupting the stability then others can as well. I can now understand that we humans are wild and have retreated from the wilderness. I can now see some similarities between the wildlife and humans.
So the oppositions argument that trapping isn’t natural isn’t quite true. With trappers outdoors they would be one of the first ones to notice if something was out of place or out of balance within nature so that a disaster or change in animal habits can be noticed and averted if necessary. The trapping license dollars went towards habitat management such as 31,800 acres of prescribed burning and 109,000 acres of water level management(Minnesota 119). These certainly helped the very fur bearers which from which the monies came from. Trapping has a much greater impact on wildlife today than most people give it credit for but the supports contained within should disprove any doubts.
Corporations, governmental agencies, and civil society organizations all play different roles in either supporting or impeding our efforts to solve environmental concerns. These organizations have the ability to alter the way individuals, communities, and societies decide to respond to the environmental issues that influence our way of living. As corporations remain obscure on their true intentions and business models we are witnessing a lack of trust in our government agencies and a mass increase in grassroots organizations and social movements. All of these factors have an impact on the consumer and give cause to growing fear around safety. Although corporations and government agencies are a mere reflection of the consumer, too commonly the
While humans are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental issues that are occurring in the world, most human systems are still unsustainable. Being sustainable in a society means that humans treat Earth like it has a limited supply of resources that need to be carefully managed in order to prevent damage to the world around us (Chiras, D. D., 2016). So, being unsustainable is the opposite; when humans treat the world like they are dominant over it, as well as believing that the Earth has an unlimited supply of resources that should be consumed by humans. Human beliefs and practices influence unsustainability, which can, and often do, correspond with the root cause of the problem. Much like most problems, there are reasons that unsustainability
Not only is there inherent beauty to the wilderness itself, and the things in it, but there is also a significant amount of cultural and historical depth to wilderness. Especially to Native Americans, wilderness holds so much more than just an escape; wilderness represents their entire way of life. According to Matthew Preston, the relationship between biodiversity and culture are intimately linked. Therefore, the eradication of wilderness is destroying two very important things: the magnificence of the wilderness itself, and the cultural value of the biodiversity within this wilderness. Protecting wilderness is our ethical responsibility, both for the sake of Native American culture, and for our own sake.
