Also the earth has become polluted, not only on the inside, but on the outside too. So you see, this has become a problem, but there are many solutions to address these problems. Either we address the issues concerning our planet, or have earth become the real life version of the movie Wall-E, without the Disney happy ending. Environmental science is the study of the environment and the solution to environmental problems. It is a science based on a simple principle, yet it is a very broad topic.
These global issues require international attention and action and the ultimate submission of certain national sovereignty. This protective “skin” of our earth is in utter turmoil and can solely rely on an international environmental movement. Can the pursuit of wealth and power justify the loss of the environment- the very body that supports all living organisms? The actions of all humans today are manipulating indefinite aspects to the environment and sadly enough, the continuance of the human species in generations to come. In order to assess the significance of international environmental law in accordance with deforestation and desertificatio... ... middle of paper ... ...Nigel.
However, "life" is undefined. We, as human beings, have the superiority to nurture and preserve all forms of life. Transitions in population growth (or decline), urban spread, industry expansions and technological advances are critical in determining and modifying the ever-changing needs of the environment. Extensive research and planning with State and local government allows NEPA to anticipate, possibly even predict, an environmental disaster before it occurs. These measures are to insure the most beneficial use of our natural resources, to preserve our Nation's history as well as encourage individuality, to search for improvements in recycling our resources and the discovery of new ones.
Environmental philosophy, has gone beyond being merely an academic pursuit, now requiring the world’s population take moral responsibility for the damages caused by their industrial advances on natural systems. Overpopulation can be seen as one of the key factors responsible for the state of our rapidly decaying earth. Developments in medicine, agriculture and technology have allowed for the human race to take over all other species and be excluded from the natural food chain. Humans, particularly westerners, lead lives of extreme consumption that take huge tolls not only on the earth but also on certain groups within society. A great division has developed between the western world and the third world.
When you really think about it, Earth goes through a lot of natural disasters, which cannot be controlled. According to an activist, Tim Haering, “Tsunamis, floods, volcanoes, earthquakes, tornadoes, wildfires, disease nature kills more than we kill each other.” Earth throws in all of these natural ... ... middle of paper ... ...o get along with all of the different opinions, beliefs, religions, etc. Nash has little to no logic with his scenario. He does not consider human nature. If humans did not kill each other first, then disease would finally arise and kill off the species.
"(Mander, 206) Man has made practically everything around us. The natural way of doing things have disappeared. Man's environment has changed so rapidly in recent years that all man can do is absorb and recycle. In the book I'm researching called Where Does Humanity Go From Here the author discusses how masculinity or the "macho" controls our society. "….we will continue to seek to dominate nature rather than cooperate with it, we will in time destroy ourselves in the process."
Diamond articulates his work with an unusual spin, using examples of historical civilizations that have snuffed themselves out by their own progress or poor relationship with the environment. The main message conveyed in Diamond's essay is that we are just as capable of choking ourselves out by our own doing today as were the historical civilizations that suffered the same fate. Despite their differing focuses, each article agrees that humans are outgrowing the finite amount of resources that the Earth can provide. A delicate symbiotic relationship between life and the environment has been maintained throughout time. Life on Earth was shaped by the constantly changing climate and surroundings.
We’ve destroyed Earth beyond our imaginations could ever take us, and taken this world although it’s not rightfully ours. If we colonize space, we will only do what we’ve done to Earth: eradicate it like we have done to Earth. Resources are running low, but the answer to the problem may be a matter of global distribution. We are able to produce enough food for the entire world, but much are wasted, so many still starve, and some to death. The alarming side of humans were revealed when World War II (and earlier) started.
It enforces that we teach more math and science classes to use as tools for our future. With the main focus on these subjects, we overlook other subjects that also play an important role in how we shape our futures. Environmental education is a very important subject that is often overlooked in the education system. Modernization and industrialization has taken a heavy toll on the one thing that sustains our existence. Through our selfish acts, mankind is single handedly responsible for the destruction of our home.
The video is important because it tells us that humans ran away from Earth, because they thought Earth was unstable, and was too environmentally damage to keep surviving against the human race. It ends with the former president freaking out by leaving the Earth to continue to be a wasteland. The past president represents the people who believe that they couldn't fix the environment, therefore the had to abandoned it and go away on a ship. The dialogue between Auto and the captain is very influential and important to this scene. Auto tries to prevent the captain from going away to Earth, and is trying to obey his orders that were given to him from the past.
