Essay on Environment

It is unfortunate that we, the inhabitants of earth, are unable to see the trials and tribulations we subject earth to on a daily basis. When discussions regarding the environment arise, most of us have the “out of sight, out of mind” attitude. However, when farmers have no crops or when the sky cries acid or wild animals eat our live stock, then we become outraged. According, Genesis 1:27, we are to subdue the earth (not destroy the earth.)

We human are killing our mother earth and everything thing in it by not protecting our environment. We inflict harm on earth every day as if it has done something to us or performed unsatisfactory. It is most unfortunate that we cannot see first hand the destruction we are causing. We don’t see the rapid extinction of numerous species due to deforestation. It is pitiful that we can feel the warming due to the holes in the ozone layer but we still own and drive multiple cars daily. It’s sad how we see a plume of smog in the middle of the day that hangs over our city like a halo hangs over an angel and we still do nothing. Also, it is amazing is how we watch the discovery channel and see the people in third world countries taking bathes and drinking the same water that the animal bath in because that all they have but we still water our lawns and some wash their cars daily. What do you say to mountain lions killing or eating family pets tied up in the yard because they think it prey only because we have invaded their space? We don’t say anything, we get our gun and we kill the mountain lion, in the mountain. Also remaining is the fact that most people have never seen the trees of an entire valley cut down or the coastline blackened by spilled oil. We don’t care, we have got to have paper and we need the oil and there is more where it came from. (more…)

Essay on America

America has long been called the most powerful nation, but are we really as secure as we think. America has many nuclear weapons and could destroy any opposing country. Our military is sizable and so are our navy and marine forces, but America is not ready for any type of Biological, Chemical, or nuclear attacks. “Before September eleventh, the threat of an attack with weapons of mass destruction was just theoretical” says Janet Williams, a reporter from the BBC news station.

In a survey carried out by a team from West Virginia University before September eleventh, thirty U.S. hospitals were contacted at random. A total of twenty six said they would only be able to handle a maximum of fifteen victims in the event of a bio-terror attack. Twenty two of those hospitals revealed they would not be able to handle a chemical or nuclear attack. It is apparent that America would not be able to handle the amount of casualties in the event of a bio-terror attack if all hospitals follow this trend.

In the event of a dirty bomb, a makeshift bomb made from unsafe materials such as cesium 137 and cobalt 60, being placed near the capital there would be wide spread, irrational panic. The average cancer risks are about two thousand deaths per ten thousand or around twenty percent. Here is a scenario, if ten pounds of TNT and a pea sized sample of cesium 137 were placed in Washington DC, the initial casualties would be limited to the site of explosion, which would mainly be by cancer from radiation. The EPA contamination threshold is an increase of one cancer death per ten thousand people. (more…)

Essay on Culture of India

When comparing the culture of India to today’s American culture, there seems to be a great deal of differences, but a few similarities seem to show through as well. Both countries are highly populated, but the varying cultures between the two carry a great affect on the social status of the country overall. Seeing the prominent differences will give a clear view of what causes problems for the Indian culture.

India, the second most populated, is a very culturally diverse country. There are the Aryans in the northern part, and the Dravidians in the southern part. Numerous types and variations of languages are spoken their country, including Hindi, which is mainly spoken in the north, and another major language being English. Their constitution recognizes a list of fifteen regional languages spoken throughout the country.

The Indian economy is divided into two separate countries, the first mentioned being village India. Village residents get most of their economic aid from farming and agriculture. Their main crops of productions are rice, wheat, pulses, sugarcane, and corn. Cotton, tobacco, oilseeds, and jutes are the main non food crops. Sadly, in this part of the country, tens of millions of Indians live below the poverty level. The second type of Indian country economy, Urban India, is mostly consists of industrialization. (more…)
