He wants to open mines to keep miners in work. Both him and Clinton support fracking, just in different places.

    Even though many may think building a wall is rude, I personally think it is just a clever way to prevent undocumented immigrants from entering; however, I do not agree with Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the wall. He believes that Mexico is taking advantage of us, but America has always been a country that is willing to help. Even though we are willing to help, we should be stricter about the immigrants that are in this country, and Donald Trump has good ideas to do that. To improve America, Trump’s scare tactics will bring people from different parties and areas of the country to vote for him in this upcoming election. He uses the fears of illegal immigration and terrorism as means of getting people to go vote for him.…

    Major rises in the planet 's temperature were seen when the industrial revolution started. “Many businesses accept that climate change is real but are waiting for signals from governments before making long-term investments in measures to address the threat. Meanwhile powerful forces, notably the polluting industries and fossil fuel sector, have deep vested interest in maintaining business as usual” (Earth Journalism Network). Climate change and global warming are a difficult subject, just as Michael Pollan explains in his essay “Why Bother?” He discusses the issue of “bothering” and doing all these things to go green and make a difference, but does it make a difference when you have millions of people being careless and doing nothing to address climate change as an issue. Which brings up the question is bothering about climate change and global warming worth it?…

    It is largely the opinion of climate change experts that geoengineering solutions are not to be relied upon to fix the problems of climate change alone. However, geoengineers are planning ahead for a future where the world may be forced to take emergency measures to protect against the devastating effects of a much warmer planet. Some ideas are more radical, where others may be useful even today to support the global transition away from excess CO2 emission. Solar radiation management may be a last resort to give people slightly more time to fully integrate pollution free systems into society. However, atmospheric carbon dioxide removal can be more realistically implemented immediately.…

    In his article, Novacek (2008) states that if the world’s inhabitants start to make more deliberate and unified changes to protect forest and wildlife preserves, decrease harmful gas emissions and continue to make technological advancement towards a better future, the Earth could be restored to it’s former glory. Additionally Novacek (2008) notes that “the first step in dealing with the problem is recognizing it for what it is” (pg. 467). Some still fail to acknowledge that climate change even exists and the full support of Earth’s inhabitant is essential in making the necessary changes against climate change. Lee (2009) does not give much hope in his article beyond saying, “For starters, we should redouble our efforts to slow down global warming and undo the damage humanity has already done to the environment.…

    I think is better for citizens to know about their presidential candidate before they are elected. The timing of the allegations, in my opinion, is right because if Mr. Trump doesn 't have his own finances and paperwork done correctly, what will happen if he becomes President? “Liberal Censors Lose Again,” details of Wisconsin persecutors wanting to reopen their abusive and secret campaign towards Governor Scott Walker 's political allies. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court and was rejected because it is hard for the government to "regulate who can join with allies to influence elections." The author believes that it was right to fight back so such tactics don 't happen and laws are written.…

    America is by far the leading voice in the fight against greenhouse gasses and in support of green living options. Other countries consider global warming but do not seem to be making the same effort to fight against it. I think that people like the idea of helping the world, but very few are willing to commit to the change and give up the unnecessary luxuries. I think that Americans often feel guilty about the way of life that we as Americans enjoy. However, we are all accustomed to the life that we live and are not very willing to give up the needs that we have, and we will continue to use the energy that is required to support our…
