    Earth On Fire Analysis

    • 975 Words
    • 4 Pages

    know forest fires took place in the U.S in states like California, Arizona, and New Mexico simply from flipping through news channels. This documentary opened my eyes to just how powerful forest fires can be and how they affect the ecosystem and environment around us. What also shocked me as the documentary came on was the opening quote, “Earth is the only planet in our solar system that burns ... and there 's one main reason why. Plants.” I didn’t really put into perspective that Earth is the only planet that can burn but never would have guessed plants are the core reason. Along with the stories that interested me in the documentary, it was shocking to hear Dr. Nate McDowell predict conifer trees will not exist in 2050 because mega-fires are killing them off. After seeing exactly what conifer trees look like, I know they are heavily populated in forest areas and for an ecologist to assume they will be extinct in 35 years is astonishing after being around for hundreds of thousands of…

    This paper will look at the Haida traditional uses of trees, shrubs, flowers, ferns, and mosses found on the archipelago. Due to the cool and wet climate along with the nutrient-poor soils, conifer species such as Western hemlock, Sitka spruce, and Western red cedar dominate Haida Gwaii’s forests (Banner et al., 2014). However, the deciduous red alder tree dominated the forest at the beginning of the trail as the earlier part of the trail was new growth. This is because red alder thrives in…

As the speaker in Frost's poem secludes himself from society he notices the dangers around him and what they could potentially cause. In Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" he describes a man…

    nose, and tongue. Our vision comes from our sense organ, our eyes and travels to the part of the brain that processes vision, the occipital lobe.

    about how amazing it is to be able to perceive the world around me. I understood that from the retina to the brain, perception goes from complex to extremely complex. In other words, being able to experience the real world is one of the marvelous opportunities that we have. This phenomenon starts with light getting in contact with the cornea continuing to the back of the eyes, to the retina, before light goes to the optic nerve and end up in the brain. This process appears to be simple;…

    One of the cultural myths that I have fallen into would have to be the ‘colorblindness is progress’. I’ve always seen past people and their color, or where they came from. I enclosed myself in the mindset of ‘I’m not racist because I don’t look at people’s skin color or background’. After learning about color blindness, and realizing that I was apart of it, I now know that this is the wrong way to view humans. Color blindness may seem like a good idea, and the intention might be of good intent;…
