  • This is very well written as a way to present the information you have found. It’s interesting how the US has been built up as a place of opportunity for immigrants and refugees throughout its history. That long-held status is falling apart now because we’ve made it so complicated to become a legal citizen and make a living as an immigrant or…Read More

  • I agree, the price for higher education nowadays is getting ridiculous. This is a creative solution that I haven’t seen before and could be promising. However, are raw numbers the only thing we should be looking at? I can’t help but wonder what the implications of accelerating the college program would be. Extra programs could also potentially…Read More

  • You bring up an interesting point with the balance between conservation justifying less than humane conditions. The article makes me wonder if zoos can evolve to a point where those ends justify the means. I remember reading about how different animals in captivity can have completely different behaviors compared to those in the wild. If zoos are…Read More

  • I think you write an interesting argument to the pro-gun choice. It’s a clever point that uses the argument’s own logic to support your point. I think stating each of the author’s credentials and work would help with understanding the background of where this information came from. You made some strong points using your own opinion combined claims…Read More

    The Price of Sustainability

    • 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.
