The Economy, Environment And Energy

- The three E’s: the economy, environment and energy are interrelated; therefore all three must be addressed and neither one is more crucial than the other. A major issue of the American economy is that it is built on both national and increasingly personal debt (Bennett, 05/02/2015). The national economy has failed to save and with exponential money, the majority of Americans are in debt. This economic crisis is caused by the dominant culture that heavily values growth in the national economy, and uses Growth Domestic Product (GDP) as the measurement of the overall wellbeing of the nation (Dietz & O’Neil, 2013)....   [tags: Sustainability, Environment, Economics]

Relationship Between Literature And The Environment

- The relationship between literature and the environment is known as ecocriticism. This relationship, however, is symbiotic. This means that only one side is being benefited. In this case, the environment is at a disadvantage. Ecocritics turn away from social constructivism, but it would seem that nature is a social construct. It is a symbol that is given power and meaning by those who create it. Literature is also a man-made concept. My aim in this paper is to critique two poems (Leslie Marmon Silko’s “Where Mountain Lion Lay Down with Deer”, and Ted Hughes’ “Hawk Roosting”) through an ecocriticism viewpoint, and try to answer the question, is there any true environment left....   [tags: Natural environment, Nature, Human, Ecology]
