Let 's take a look at the points from the article 10 ways recycling hurts the environment, by Andrew Handley. The number one point is that recycling gives false promises, but how? Andrew Handley says, “The biggest reason recycling hurts the environment doesn’t have anything to do with the technical process—it’s the mindset it gives people. Recycling’s main impact is to convince us that it’s okay to be wasteful in other areas, because we make up for it through recycling. It encourages consumption, rather than pointing out ways to reduce consumption overall.” Honestly, the biggest reason people don 't recycle is because they are plain lazy, there is no way to sugar-coat that.
According to climatechange.com, if we do not act immediately, not recycling is going to affect our environment. Refusing to recycle the waste materials would poison the food and water we use, leading to our death. Recycling affects the earth more than we can imagine. We’ve got be more aggressive towards reducing and reusing the waste material, as there is an increase in the amount of garbage production. The World Bank, a
Under such assets, the government should be compelled to enforce and regulate such actions to improve our environment. Actions speak louder than words, and therefore many communities should do something to help the environment because it shows righteousness. Though the government does whatever is can to help the environment, they should act more of a police-like figure to sustain order. Passing a law is not enough to get people to be more active in trying to preserve the environment; it is like a teacher telling a student to do their homework, but in the end it does not work. The government should be enforcing acts because the environment and its resources are not going to live on forever: “The truth of consummation is that humans will always consume natural resources” (Winters).
Although there is no perfect solution for packaging as all options will in some way negatively affect the environment, it is clear that plastic is definitely not the best choice and that paper is a much smarter and more eco-friendly choice. Many countries have already came to this realization and have quickly taken action to preserve their land by banning the use of plastic packaging. Perhaps future societies could be protected from the pollution, destruction of entire ecosystems, and countless life-threatening health issues from plastic if the rest of society joins along as well in banning this hazardous material.
Our world is getting to the point to where we will be surrounded by trash. There are hazards happening because of the excess trash, which could have been recycled. Although the government is not doing their best to make these hazards stop, surprisingly it is the non-governed organizations that are trying to make the difference. Proven studies and facts have been made about these issues, so people should take this into consideration and start recycling more. Recycling is a beneficial process that is not required globally like it should be because citizens are uneducated on the process and what it can do.
The effects are obvious and therefore, this brings out the question as to whether such changes are caused by human population. Some argue that these global warming solutions can be solved by saving gas and recycling. Human population has been an overlooked solution by many. No one wants to talk about this due to the debate on ways to reduce
However, not all options are being pursued. Reasons for this go beyond the general skepticism of global warming and the like. There is both economic and political favorability in environmental negligence, and behind every one of these reasons, one simple truth comes out: it’s simply easier to harm the planet than to protect it. Because of this one statement, most businessmen and leaders of the world (with a few exceptions) completely ignore climate change. They will not listen to the constant droning telling them to “go green” or to “reduce their carbon footprint”, so a stronger message needs to be sent.
With todays society it is hard to get everyones attention about a global issue. One person can not do much about making an impact because in oder for something to change many would have to contribute to it. There is really not a way of having zero impact on this earth. Even our onw bodies produce waste. Programs can be created to save the planet, but it is hard to beleive someone does it because they want to and not because theya re trying to get a profit out of it.
Our environment is crucial to the survival of the human race, providing key energy resources such as food, water and fuel for our everyday lives. Without this resource, the human race would suffer significantly so it begs the question, why are we slowly destroying it? Problems like overpopulation, deforestation and pollution are all man made creations which are destroying our environments. Weber (2010) highlights one of the main reasons why the public’s perception of climate change is so poor is down to psychological influences. People either do not believe or choose to ignore the consequences of their actions on the environment.
Concentrated power will be used only to benefit those in power, so if power was given to the people, laws could benefit the people instead of the elite. Libertarians are seemingly conflicted over the idea of intellectual property. If someone makes something clever and unique that they worked on for years, they should have ownership of it, but since that... ... middle of paper ... ...nnot be limited, once they are put out in the world, they are free to travel and be shared as people will them to be. Opposition to intellectual property laws are becoming increasingly common. The moral aspects of intellectual property rights are coming into question, as limiting information and ideas is not benefiting anyone but major corporations.
