    • Hi Jayme,
      I find your topic very interesting and I appreciate that you have taken the time to link the readers to your sources while also expanding on their relevancy to your claim. I think that many people are misinformed, including myself, on this topic and seeing that perhaps we have the wrong idea with regards to healthcare is eye-opening. I will be looking forward to reading more about this and filling gaps in my knowledge about ethics in healthcare.

    • Hi Jayme, thank you for sharing your thoughts on how we could approach the energy crisis we are facing and are going to face. Energy is very important in our lives and is like a necessity today unlike before. In a matter of around 200 years, we have been able to improve our advancements in energy production. I agree that the price of sustainability will decrease over time because of new inventions and innovations. Solar power and wind power are great energy production processes; but like gas and oil markets, they have their pros and cons. Solar and wind power, as you said, are not as effective and cost-efficient today; these cons can be fixed in the future through new developments. But there are cons that will always be problems to these markets. According to Emma Bryce, “Wind turbines kill an estimated 140,000 to 328,000 birds each year in North America, making it the most threatening form of green energy. And yet, it’s also one of the most rapidly expanding energy industries: more than 49,000 individual wind turbines now exist across 39 states.” While we are trying to make energy safer to the environment, green energy such as wind power hurts the environment differently than oil and gas companies. Though I only presented one con to these green energy methods, there are many more than this. In conclusion, I agree that the energy crisis is very important to the future of the world and that the future holds what is to come.
