    The world is in denial, climate change is happening, and the earth is dying because people are killing it. A clear example of this denial is seen in the decline of news coverage regarding environmental change, “in 2007, the three major U.S. networks—CBS, NBC, and ABC ran 147 stories on climate change; in 2011 the networks ran just fourteen stories on the subject” (Klein, 34).

Continued denial will be the downfall of human existence if the world population continues on the present path of destruction; positive change to the global footprint must incorporate control of the population, its consumption, and future technological choices. In This Changes Everything Capitalism vs Climate, Naomi Klein presents for the general public a well-supported idea to not only improve climate change, but also create policies to improve lives by creating jobs and reducing the gap between the ultra-rich and the poor. Her ideas are largely presented from an ecological Marxist position. She brings to light in the first few chapters the neoliberal capitalistic society that dominates worldwide and how this societal view conflicts with the environmental movement to improve climate change. In part one of her book she provides simple, easy to understand descriptions of the main causes of climate change, which include: corporate greed, globalization and free market, as well as the involvement of the nation state in…

    The theme of this poem, would be a soldier who thinks of war as beautiful rather than it being a dreadful and sad environment. I would think that the author wrote it in a descriptive style, because he describes what has happened by using tone and imagery. In the first part of the poem, Ehrhart wrote, “What if I didn’t shoot the old lady running away from our patrol, or the old man in the back of the head, or the boy in the marketplace?” (Ehrhart). He uses imagery to paint a picture in your mind…

    places that can smack me in the face with déjà vu. Whenever I walk by and look up at the windows above I still see the “David Wright shot a 72 on Wednesday” sign (this became a battle cry for me whenever the Phillies played the Mets, regardless of whether or not Wright was in the lineup). That was the prime location I was able to snag on October 31, 2008, bright and early at 8:34 a.m. There was an electricity in the air; the championship drought was finally broken and the streets were flooded…

    I have a friend from Southern California, and she told me she did not even know we were in a drought. When she said that I was shocked, I thought how could she possibly not know? After reading the chapter China Town, in the book Cadillac Dessert by Marc Reisner, I finally got my answer. How could she have known there was a drought when almost all the water in California gets pumped down to the heavily populated desert area. The chapter begins with some background. The author states that…

    Coaches have the power to change lives. I can humbly say this as all my coaches, both good and bad, have taught me in some way what it takes to be a good athlete and most importantly how to be a good human being. They have taught me life lessons that I can only hope to preserve by instilling them into my athletes in my time as a coach. The articles I have chosen to highlight in this essay show how coaches have helped to develop character in athletes, how they pushed them to be the best on and…

    This refusal to accept empirical evidence, that can be as massive as a whale, makes the nation as a whole incapable of properly addressing critical issues and in turn dissuades the government from taking action. In addition to criticism, many artists subtly try to persuade the viewers of their artwork to take action. The first image I looked at was a political cartoon by Steve Sack from The Minneapolis Star Tribune regarding the Flint water crisis. This cartoon depicts Governor Snyder on a…
