La historia de estos dos eventos son eventos que no sé mucho de pero me interesan. También lo que me gusto de esta publicación es el buen trab…[Read more]

  • This is a very interesting topic and the solution that you pointed out is an excellent one. The way you introduced how the UN passed Article 12 is a good point. The way that the US waste these resources in unacceptable and should without a doubt be sent to third world countries to help them progress and got out of a state of poverty. The US should…[Read more]

  • The issue of climate change and its increasing effect it has on the world is very alarming. The more I have done research on this topic the more I have realized that what we do as individuals, communities,

    • I completely agree that climate change is an issue we must pay attention to. While we as individuals and communities can do important things like recycle or ride a bike, I believe massive change has to come from industries changing and being willing to create incentives that punish or help large corporations to evening out their carbon footprint. Unfortunately, I don’t know if large industries would buy into this because it could cut profits for them.

    • Hi Jamie, I agree with you fully, pollution is an enormous problem that can and has had detrimental effects on our environment. I feel like it is a problem that we should talk about more and figure out solutions for. The part about big oil companies giving contributions to political leaders and spending millions on lobbyists. I mean, I guess it makes sense but it goes to show how money can manipulate our countys future.

    • I agree wholeheartedly that climate change is a serious problem. It has been placed on the back burner for years, but seems to have come into fruition only recently. It goes without saying that climate change is something everyone should care about as this is a topic that affects the public health and the overall well-being of people on Earth. Not to mention, climate change affects the environment as well as many species have been endangered or extinct due to its effects. The United States should emulate the actions of the United Kingdom by reducing their gas emissions and spread awareness about climate change like Greta Thunberg to use your examples. Overall, this was a very informative article and you had a well-written transition at the end towards the positive aspects. Even though there is much distress in the world due to climate change, there is still hope for the future.

    • I thought it was interesting when you said,”…industries have a large impact on the US is because top oil companies such as ExxonMobil, Shell, and Chevron have an iron grip on policy making by making very generous contributions to political figures that advocate for these oil companies needs”. This caught my eye because its true. Many politicians don’t believe in climate change even though its been occurring for years. When the topic is brought about, politicians don’t talk about climate change because, like you said, they’re being supported by big oil companies. If those politicians made a change they would no longer get their paychecks and politicians would be messing with a billion dollar industry that millions depend on.
