FIND AN ALTERNATIVE/OPPOSING POINT OF VIEW TO CLIMATE CHANGE

I searched for an article that had both the positive and the negative views to climate change. Not to my surprise I was able to find countless negative views to climate change. I believe it is safe to say that the negatives outweigh the positives. I was able to find an article that argued if humans were at fault for causing climate change. As well as a chart that was on the Future Farmers of America website that states warmer climate creates longer harvesting/growing.

DOES NATURE HAVE VALUE IN ITSELF?

I believe that nature does hold value in itself. We might not realize it; but we take for granted that which we have and seems to be endless. Just like futuristic films that play with the notion that we will one day fight for basic survival needs; as the quantity of nature becomes scarce, its value increases.

IS OUR COMMERCIAL EXPLOITATION OF ANIMALS IMMORAL?

This is a difficult question to answer due to the fact that many companies operate in different manners. I believe very few do not operate immorally, but a majority of the companies start to see animals as objects that produce money rather than a living creature. This causes companies to not care if how they are operating causes animals any sort of unreasonable pain.

WHO SHOULD PAY THE COST FOR PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT?

I believe that those who are responsible for causing the pollution should be the ones to pay the cost for protecting the environment. As stated in the book “Thus, the enemy in the war against environmental abuse turns out, in a sense, to be all of us.’ I agree that it is each and every one of our responsibility to pay for our part of protecting the environment. The only altercation I have here is that the following question “in what way/amount should we be protecting/paying?’ goes unanswered. When it comes to asking “who are those who stand to benefit from the protection and restoration of the environment?’ I believe the answer to that is also all of us.

Eddie, I also don’t think that many businesses have the desire to operate immorally. I think that if there was a cost effective and moral avenue for companies to take, than they would do so. Unfortunately, there are people and companies out there that are more concerned with price than they are with preservation. I agree with you that we’ve all done our part in contributing the deterioration of the environment and that it is our responsibility to fix it. There are several ways that we can go about helping the environment, many of which have been employed today. Recycling, solar power, diminishing greenhouse gasses, and even just picking up trash that’s on the street. Obviously, the everyday person doesn’t have the amount of money that it would be needed to have a positive effect on the environment in one transaction, but each of us can help by trying the be a cleaner society.
