    Water Crisis Reflection

    • 1085 Words
    • 5 Pages

    When I first attended class, I thought that English 2 would be just like any regular English class. Everyone was quiet and appeared to be shy, however, I was surprised to see that the instructor was somewhat young. As the first day of class went on, I was also surprised to know that we would have class outside due to the instructor not bringing a key. I instantly thought the instructor was a bit odd but otherwise a cool guy. However, when I found out the subject of the semester would be about the California water crisis, I immediately became uninterested. The water crisis is something that should be addressed and considered, which I agreed upon, however, I did not expect the course to focus entirely on this subject. Nonetheless, I learned that water is being wasted to grow unimportant crops in California such as alfalfa and how some crops like almonds consume a huge amount of water. We also learned how Los Angeles came to be due to the city stealing water in order to grow and how one man spent his time creating a canal to channel water into the city. As the semester went by, I learned more and more about the water crisis through the many articles we read and also got the opportunity to work with others in class for a group project. The class exhibited a friendly and helpful atmosphere as I saw many students quickly befriending one another. Although I was not as interested in the subject, I still like the atmosphere of the class and how easygoing the instructor was. English 2…

    This has been a contentious issue that has caused numerous accusations. Governor Scott has indicated the Flint City Council ought to be blamed as they voted to switch from the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department to the Karegnondi Water Authority (Ridley,2016). However, fact-checkers have argued the Flint City Council only voted to switch water providers and refrained from voting to utilize the Flint River as an alternative source of water (The Center for Michigan, 2016). The financial dire…

    • 5 Pages

    Mazur (2012) focuses on developing countries and observes that these areas have “an average fertility rate of 4.8 children per woman,” which is nearly twice the global average and is expected to double by 2050. Another crucial element that encourages water scarcity is climate change. As droughts become more frequent, the water supply is set to decrease. This affects global agriculture greatly. The IPCC (2007) believe that increased temperatures and inconsistency in precipitation will lead to…

    organised quickly. Furthermore, as an analytical idea, virtual water could be identified as a “medicine against undue ‘hydrocondia’”, such as the Malthusian contention that population growth will inevitably lead to a water and food crisis (Warner in Hummel et al., 2006: 16). Specifically, in the Arab region whereby increasingly higher incomes combined with rapid population growth generates an increase in the demand for food, this could be quenched only by increasing the levels of…

    Flint, Michigan is a rather small city of about 99,000 people, with a majority (56.6%) of the population being African American and about 41.6% of residents living below the poverty line. Once the home of the United States’ largest General Motors plant, Flint’s economy suffered a major blow when General Motors downsized during the 1980s.

    water situation in the region, one must first understand its development and subsequent impact on the area’s society and economy. Early settlers in Oregon, having come into contact with an area filled to the brim with resources and virtually cut off from their Eastern counterparts, decided to exploit the benefits of the region. Hoping to get as much as they possibly could out of, what they believed to be an overabundance of water, early settlers attempted to provide water for irrigation,…

    Political cartoons are frequently made by artists to express their frustration with certain issues, politicians, and sometimes even the public as a whole. What initially appears to be a simply humorous cartoon is actually so much more. In these two cartoons, two completely unrelated issues are addressed: the Flint water crisis and global warming. Yet, both topics are discussed by displaying criticism that natural disasters are frequently disregarded until one’s career is at stake and even then,…

    In order to combat the water crisis, Moby replaced his lawn and installed a drip irrigation system, then declares that “California has a finite resource in terms of water” and a change will indeed happen whether “Governor Brown wants to change water policy or not.” Another issue involving Governor Brown is that he stated “farmers have suffered enough, and that is terrible,” however, Brown creates a generalization of all farmers and, what Moby points out, “not liking a solution does not mean that…
