    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). People do not want to hear about climate change and decreasing natural resources.

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…

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…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Political Cartoons

    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…
