    Golden Rice Controversy

    • 1789 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Eva Resnick-Day and her question about the fossil fuel industry was enough to make Hillary Clinton lose her calm at her campaign in New York (Phillip). It was not the first time Eva had done this, and it was not the first time her group was known for this. Eva belongs to a group known as Greenpeace, an environmental awareness group with deep ties in past and current issues. In the past, it had focused on whaling and nuclear efforts, but with stricter regulations in place and in order to stay relevant, Greenpeace has moved onto current issues, such as Golden Rice in India. However, the reasoning and effects of this issue has caused widespread controversy. Greenpeace’s protest on Golden Rice is causing it to lose support as it strays from their original goal of environmental protest into popular pseudoscience. Greenpeace found its beginnings in the Cold war as the “Don’t Make a Wave Committee,” a group of people who worked together in the basement of a church to…

    The Japanese and Norwegian violation of the International Whaling Commission’s (IWC) moratorium on whaling are two distinct issues in my mind. In 1986 the IWC imposed a moratorium on whaling (IWC. n.d.) in order to protect the worldwide population of whales. I contend that the protection of whales, or any other species which are in danger of extinction is a positive and necessary step, but the protection of thriving species is unnecessary. Norway only allows whaling of minke whales…

    The power of emotion: compassion In Marina Keegan’s essay, Why We Care About Whales, Marina claims on how humans value the life of humans and the life of non-human animals. The essay starts with a social occurrence of emerging beached whales. A natural force that is created by the movement of both the moon and the Earth push whales to the beach. While giving a detailed, vivid explanation of how beached whales die, Marina maximizes the sadness and lamentation of whales’ deaths. Furthermore, she…

    meat the way they did after the world wars. 6. How should these claims be balanced against world opinion - which is generally very supportive of the protection of whales? I believe that if it is a swift process of making sure the ban sticks then we can shift the world opinion more favorably in the direction of Japan. Because of documentaries like “The Cove” and a recent uprising of interest in whaling, Japan has been facing backlash, but they are so much more than their whaling. I also…

    Arguments Against Whaling

    • 763 Words
    • 4 Pages

    I most certainly do not agree with the Norwegian and Japanese position on whaling. Their position on the issue is the very definition of ridiculous. They want to argue that their culture is being violated by the ban, that they have a cultural right to kill creatures that occupy a crucial part at the top of our global aquatic ecosystem. They argue that their villages that still whale have a cultural right to exist. The IMF and the world bank make much larger demands on developing economies,…

    and of course, go from a two to a ten. The magic of that is foundation which comes in a variety of shades for every skin tone out there. However, not all foundations are the same. For example, my first time wearing foundation at the young age of fourteen, I wore starlight beige from Cover Girl thinking it would hide my freckles and pimples, yet I did not know I would be the laughing- stock in middle school with people saying I looked like an Oompa loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory…

    beauty of a building you should look at; it’s the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time,’ was a famous quote by David Allen Coe, quote provided by blogger guy (2015).

Foundations provide a medium for the loads to be transferred from the structure to the ground, there are many…
