735 Words 3 Pages
In a environment or any sort of livelihood we can all agree that humans take the majority of our planet’s demand. Throughout the whole unit readers learned more about our effects on our atmosphere. Also all throughout the question of humans being more important than our planet and the animals found on Earth has popped up several times. For those wondering the demand of humans is equally important as the demand of our atmosphere and animals. Firstly, we as humans have a major impact on our environment that we need to take into consideration. If we continue to contribute negatively to our atmosphere and any living thing on it the problems we have created can become larger consequences for our future. For example, in the passage “Silent …show more content…
It was a spring without voices. On the mornings that had once throbbed with the dawn chorus of robins, catbirds, doves, jays, wrens, and scores of other bird voices, there was now no sound; only silence lay over the fields and woods and marsh.” This is extremely relevant because in the passage it’s the effects of us humans affecting the world negatively and the effect that came out of it. It opens readers eyes who are blinded by thinking trashing our world is perfectly fine. In addition to trash our world, we have created a new world conquence called global warming.

As humans we need to understand that we cause most of the world’s problems we have today. In the short story “Silent Springs” on paragraph 8, page 364, it says, “No witchcraft, no enemy action had silenced the rebirth of new life in this stricken world. The people had done it themselves.” This is significant because most believe that the plant has caused this destruction not us. When in reality we the people are truly the ones causing much more destructive than we can even begin to comprehend. For example, in “Nobel Speech”, page 374, paragraph 10, says, “So today, we dumped another 70 million tons of global‐warming pollution into the thin shell of atmosphere surrounding our planet, as if it were an open sewer. And tomorrow, we will dump a slightly larger amount, with the cumulative concentrations now trapping more and more heat from the sun.” 70 million tons is roughly 140 million lbs. We humans dump 70 million tons of pollution alone. Imagine how much trash we dump or how much oil we spill per day. The number is increasingly high and if we don’t help decrease it we will ruin our atmosphere and every living thing on
