Increasing pollution, the earth’s changing atmosphere and increasingly changing temperatures have been a part of the environment for centuries. Scientist’s discuss and promote issues like global warming, and reduced air quality and the facts are, as we advance in technology, we continue to find new ways to ravage our environment in the pursuit of wealth and comfort. The general population is aware of the environmental issues and challenges, however not all agree on its effect, and the solutions required, and others do not fear the effects enough to take part in promoting a better way to manage the environment and mankind’s needs. Our environment is a place we all live in, and we all need to consider the limitations of what is a responsible use of our shared planet. To what extent should the environment shape our identities as moral human beings and capture our feelings throughout the work of survival, disasters, ecology, and technology.
What grief and challenges do individual’s experience with respect to the environment? As human beings, we rarely think of every possible outcome of our actions, with our latest inventions or the selfish acts for wealth. We do not give the environment with much respect, practices that allow for the production of one resource, while sacrificing another, practices like venting natural gas to produce oil are short-sighted and wasteful. When considering whether to produce a particular resource, consideration for all by-products must play a primary role in the decision to do so. Is this kind of stuff going to increase the survival our race? What would god think of us as we do these things? If we want our race to survive we have to make changes to go greener and reduce our ecological footprint. In the past we used to adapt to the environment and make the changes for the better, such as after crop failures we would adapt by planting different crops or using different crop methods to adapt to the local environment, and now that mother nature is warning us with the effect of global warming, we cannot continue to ignore the environment and hope mother nature will fix itself. As us humans we think if we just vacate the environment for a while we think mother earth will fix itself Things happen, like natural disasters and as human beings we can accept that, but we need to get through the rough and tough times together as a family. We do things to the environment because maybe our fears get the best of us; the fear of dying is all in us. Maybe we think we can do whatever we want to the environment because we’re only going to be on the planet for so long, the environment can shape the way we think through our greatest fears. The scientist in the story Barney, Barney fears that something is going to happen to Barney and the scientist always has the feeling Barney intelligence is too much for the rat and he is getting to smart. These man-made tests have made an obstacle, after the tests it just makes Barney smarter.
The Fort McMurry wildfire was a disaster, and it is not fully known yet whether this was a natural disaster or a man-made disaster. A natural disaster is something caused without the work of humans, it would occur “naturally”. Regardless of the type of disaster, we are faced with, we cope with disasters by starting fresh and starting from the bottom, when fires hit, we clean up and rebuild and make changes for the better. Do we classify birth and death as disasters? For some yes, when some people have an unplanned birth, it may seem to be a disaster; additionally, an early or accidental death may seem to be a disaster. Both births and deaths that happen in the normal sense of a people’s lifetime is natural and not considered to be a disaster. Everyone fears death and being alone, some people when someone close passes away it can take a part you with them. It might seem a disaster when someone is no longer there; the fear of being alone when that person passes away builds up inside, and all you have is the memories. But if we want to be the best of the best we can not show our fears. So say you wanted to make money and to be the best of the best, the job requires you to do the driving, the fear of being alone come to life and we need to not fear to be alone cause the fears we have will limit us to what we can do. In the story Romeo and Juliet, Romeo fears Lady Capulet but Romeos dying love for Juliet got in the way, now Romeo is not afraid of his fear because he wants to be the best of the best.
The relationship between the environment and humans is a parasitism relationship, and the environment is not benefiting from the intervention of humans. Most enhanced oil recovery methods use techniques such as fracking, CO2 injection, and other methods to produce oil and gas from marginal formations that are not otherwise recoverable. These formations are often in close proximity to drinking water aquifers. The most significant technological advancement is the hydrogen fuel cell technology; while hydrogen fuel cells will use fossil fuels as their energy source they will do so in a far more efficient environmentally friendly process. Through the expanded use of newer technology such as hydrogen fuel cells, solar, wind, and tidal to generate energy man can harness nature’s potential, without the harmful side effects of traditional energy exploration and polluting processes. These more passive energy methods will allow for future generations to continue the prosperity enjoyed by previous generations without the harmful side-effects of traditional energy exploration and use. What do the roles and responsibilities does technology play in our lives? In the short story, The Veldt by Ray Bradbury there was a nursery house that was made of machines to make the perfect kids. The humans in the story fear that they cannot raise the child to the standards the machine can. As moral human beings, it is in our nature to raise a child how we want to, teaching them from right and wrong. But now fearing they cannot do it as good as the technology that they have created to raise children. What was God’s plan when he put us on this earth, to be happy, to be sad, and have opinions?
What feelings do us moral beings have towards the life of animals? The viewing of the life of an animal is not always a positive. There are people who fear the death of an animal and others may view them as meat and worthless. Should we or should we not condone the use of animal testing, in the short story Barney they do testing on a rat and he has a mind of his own and plots to kill the scientist. Should animals be used for research for the benefit of human beings? This is where the environment shapes human feelings and influence life forums. We take advantage of species that are not our type, it does not matter where they fall on the food chain, if they are not human they are going to get used to human benefits. Animal testing can be cruel and unnecessary to some extent. If we are ever to get the cure for cancer some animal testing still needs to go on, but not the kind of testing that puts animal’s lives at risk. Animal testing should be used to some extent, some may disagree and some may agree. No one would want to use human testing, and possibly killing our own type, it is practically a crime. What would Jesus and god think of all this testing? The long-term consequences of bio-engineering are that they’re not well enough known to mankind, and when changing things around it creates more problems down the stream. Everyone’s opinion matters, it is what makes us human, it is what shapes human feelings.
To what extent should the environment shape our identities as moral human beings and capture our feelings throughout the work of survival, disasters, ecology, and technology. The survival of our race depends on many factors, like recognizing the things the earth tells us, we need to make changes so we can live on this planet for another million years . Not only the earth telling us to make changes, but to think before we act, we carelessly and make most of our decisions not thinking the environment impact. When respecting the environment we should not just think of our actions for wealth, like venting natural gas. If we want to be the best of the best we can not fear ourselves when coming to opinions and feelings that the environment influences. Our relationship with the environment is a parasitism where moral beings benefit, and the environment does not. What was god’s idea when he created life, why did he put us on this planet, to be different and all have different ways of looking at idea’s and issues? The ability to be able to recognize a natural disaster from a human cause disaster, some blame the environment for global warming scientists say it is the work of humans. When should we limit the use of animal testing and what should be tested? Bioengineering is a curve ball when changing one thing it affect another, is it worth the time? We fear 2 things, the fear of being alone and the fear of death, we fear them both every day. But should we fear things for the time being on the earth?
