“We are entering a period of consequences.” This is an eye-opening quote from the 2006 movie The Inconvenient Truth. Narrated by the former United States Vice President Al Gore, the movie educated many on global warming. It raised public awareness of this issue.
We are now facing global warming. Due to different human activities, the world today endures devastating natural changes and disasters.
Average temperature of each year is increasing time by time. Glaciers and ice sheets all around the world are slowly melting and collapsing. Many places are slowly being covered by water. Typhoons are getting stronger and more ravaging. Vectors increase their range that then result into the creation of new harmful and deadly diseases. These are all occurring because of the increase of greenhouse gases specially carbon dioxide in the atmosphere due to our actions.
If we continue these actions (burning of garbage like plastics and fossil fuels, usage of fuel-powered vehicles, running of factories, etc.), our earth will suffer greatly. We will experience drought and water shortage. Temperature will increase day by day. These are just some. All of us will suffer from the consequences of our actions.
True data was given - data that states all of the harmful effects of global warming to different parts of the world. Is that not enough for you to change? Is seeing and hearing all of these heart-touching and tear-dropping instances enough for you to change?
We must act and take a stand. We must help each other and take our parts in saving the world. Let us reduce the production of greenhouse gases. How? Let us learn to recycle. Let us avoid burning our daily wastes. Let us create a pit that acts as a container of these wastes. Let us learn to walk or ride a bike instead riding fuel-powered vehicles. Let us plant trees for them to consume existing carbon dioxide. As humans…...

Meat Essay

...Eating Meat: Organic Vs. Corn Fed Vs. Grass Fed There are many debates any differing opinions going around, concerning which type of beef—or meat in general, for that matter—is the best for humans to ingest. Having these many6 different opinions and facts floating around makes the average consumer go crazy in the shopping lines. Many people simply want to know what is best for them—the healthiest option for themselves or their family. Finding this information, however, has proven to be quite a difficult task, one that does not seem to be easily completely. Contrary to popular belief, the vast amount of information, views, opinions, and statistics out there, concerning the different types of beef feed actually make the search for the truth more difficult, not easier. The information, what little fact is actually out there, is hard to decipher, due to its complicated nature, and the fact that it looks as though it was written for biologists to understand. The average shopper just wants the facts, in laymen’s terms; however, this is rarely what they find. Unfortunately, what facts they actually find ids obscured by the many opinions and views that have nothing to do with the actual facts. The simple fact remains, though: humans’ bodies are more apt to take-in and digest the type of meat that is more nutritious and able to used the most in our systems—either ads fuel, bone support, vitamins, or minerals. Many consumers now purchase grass-fed or organic beef, thinking...

The Truth

..."The Truth " Do you agree and promise to tell the truth and nothing but the truth? This is the question our United States high ranking judges ask the prosecutor. Why do we contradict ourselves, like in the situation of the Atomic bomb and us having to lie about us killing and hurting many people, telling people evidential videos were destroyed, lying and telling people we hit their army base. Are we who we say we are or just a lie? When the bomb hit Nagasaki everyone that it was a big success for revenge for what the Japanese did to Pearl harbor. People walking around thinking of our success as a wonderful thing making the Japanese surrender because of the destruction of their " army base". People not knowing of the fact that we hit a highly populates suburb of normal harmless people some on their way to work, kids on their way to school just killed for something they didn't even do. Once people figured out that we have killed thousands of innocent people, they started to rethink America's lifestyle. People cursed us they thought we were extremist. The worst part is that the harmful radiation was still killing people, what have we done? The only proof we had was forced to be hidden by U.S Generals. Until one day at a film fest the clip was shown. There was no serious reaction from the Americans until a situational stir up by the press that had made a very emotional reaction from most Americans questioning our country....

Truth

...ready to sit down at my honeymoon feast and stare into his eyes. Oh, how glorious the day when the real me is set free. My husband is coming in on a white horse. He is my knight in shining armor. He is going to take me away to paradise. If this sounds sickening to you, it should. The sad part about it is, this is the exact type of message that gets people to shout down a man behind a pulpit. I don’t know if they do it out of ignorance or if they do it just to get a good offering. Either way it is very unbiblical to teach such falseness. The Bible says to study to show ones self approved of God, a work man that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Anyone who studies should know who and what the true church is. Hopefully by the end of this paper, I’ll be able to give you a glimpse of that truth. The Scriptures and background is beyond the scope of a paper. Origin of the Word Church It is not the scope of this paper to go into all the history and language study of the church. It is important, though, to have a foundation that can be built upon. I encourage one to look back in history and to do word studies on the different names of the church. It is important to know our roots and how this thing called church got started. Or should I say “the church”. The main Greek word used in the New Testament for the church is ekklesia. It is used around 115 times in the New Testament. It is also interesting to note that it is used very few times in the four......

Meat Industry in Need of Reform

...Running Head: IN NEED OF REFORM The Meat Processing Industry: In Need of Reform Taylor Purucker Niles High School The Meat Processing Industry: In Need of Reform Every day, animals are sent to slaughterhouses to be processed. Packaged meats are shipped from slaughterhouses to various supermarkets, where consumers purchase it fresh, or frozen. Buyers cannot tell whether or not the meat its safe to eat; they rely on US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations. However, Sustainable Table says in their forum, Food Safety, “...76 million Americans suffer from food poisoning each year, causing 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths” (2009). Interests raise questions whether or not the USDA regulations are strictly enforced. It seems hard to believe since contaminated meat is the main cause for food-born illnesses. The recurrence of sanitary violations isn't the only dilemma; worker safety and animal health is also a problem. Workers are injured during the rapid process of processing animals; slaughterhouses process more animals an hour because of new technology. Animal's health becomes very poor after beatings and lack of nutrition. Robert Longley expresses in his report, USDA Weak in Enforcing Slaughterhouse Rules: GAO on About.com that, “GAO reported that a study of reports of actual cases of noncompliance at slaughter plants revealed 'several' incidents in which inspectors failed to stop plant operations as required......

The Truth

...Alexia Magana English 35 Professor Freije Journal # 3 The Truth “No man has good enough memory to make a successful liar” –Abraham Lincoln When reading this quote I immediately thought about how often I lie and how often other people lie. Could you imagine a world where there’s no such thing as lying? Would we all just be better acceptors of everything or would the world just be filled with anger for those not as willing to accept the truth? The fact of the matter is that the truth will come out sooner or later. You have to have a good memory to remember your own exact words. In many instances when someone tells a lie it’s usually a very quick response, denying or simply distorting a statement. For myself personally I am not one of the best liars. There is something about lying that goes against my morals and way of thinking especially when it comes to lying to certain people. As a teenager now I can distinguish how to lie and to whom I can lie to. I wouldn’t lie to my parents the same way I lie to my peers at school. For one thing my parents know me far too well and I probably would have a much more complex thought in the way I lie and what I decide to feed them . Whereas on the other hand lying to peers at school is much simpler because there is not as strong as a connection (not with all peers but the majority) there’s no need for your peers to interrogate you further. In this type of lying method you have to consider remembering the complex lie with its......

Truth

...Truth--its definition, its pursuit, its discovery--is central to much of human intellectual activity. One place we look for clues about what is true is in the trends of the community. We may attempt to find it in religion or cultural beliefs, for example, that we have learned from a community that shares these beliefs. We know the earth is round or that war is bad because everyone knows it. Pierce’s statement praises this way of knowing, suggesting that community, whatever that community may be, is a key to the search for truth. This suggestion is tied to the idea of a body of human knowledge, the idea that the human race progresses as each community member adds to the world’s knowledge, relying on what others have concluded is true and then building on it with his or her own new knowledge. Thus, knowledge is a group pursuit, closely tied to community. There are many types of communities. The whole human race may be thought of as a knowledge community. The smaller group of all scientists is often referred to as the scientific community. Even a ToK class is a kind of community. Depending on what truth we seek, we may tie it to the community of the whole world or to a smaller community that reflects a focus on a particular area of knowledge. For example, although a Catholic may tie his or her theological knowledge to the leadings of the Catholic community, he or she probably does not tie them to the theological knowledge of the world community, or even of the western world.......

Truth

...Lesson Guide Lesson 1 - Veritology: What is Truth? Introduction In this initial episode, students receive a general introduction to the overall scope and purpose of The Truth Project. This series is designed to take participants on a guided worldview tour, following the points of the worldview compass, a tool designed to direct our thinking with regard to four fundamental issues: Truth, God, Man, and the Social Order. Along the way, we will attempt to build a logical, systematic framework of ideas by which to organize and evaluate the various truth claims to be encountered during the course of our tour. Our ultimate goal is not simply to gain knowledge, but to look upon the face of God – and to be transformed in the process. Themes Our destination in Lesson 1 lies due North. The focal point for this first hour of discussion is the concept of Truth itself. What is truth? Why is it important? What role does it play in the biblical view of the world, God's purpose for the cosmos, His will for mankind, His plan of salvation, and the way we live our personal lives? In his comments on this subject, Dr. Del Tackett will demonstrate how truth was fundamental to the mission of Jesus Christ in the world; how it forms the heart of the Cosmic Battle that has been raging since the beginning; how this battle has divided the world into two opposing camps or sides; how lies, the antithesis of Truth, take human hearts and minds captive by the power of deception; and how every man and......

Against Meat

...October 11, 2009 The Food Issue Against Meat By JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER THE FRUITS OF FAMILY TREES When I was young, I would often spend the weekend at my grandmother’s house. On my way in, Friday night, she would lift me from the ground in one of her fire-smothering hugs. And on the way out, Sunday afternoon, I was again taken into the air. It wasn’t until years later that I realized she was weighing me. My grandmother survived World War II barefoot, scavenging Eastern Europe for other people’s inedibles: rotting potatoes, discarded scraps of meat, skins and the bits that clung to bones and pits. So she never cared if I colored outside the lines, as long as I cut coupons along the dashes. I remember hotel buffets: while the rest of us erected Golden Calves of breakfast, she would make sandwich upon sandwich to swaddle in napkins and stash in her bag for lunch. It was my grandmother who taught me that one tea bag makes as many cups of tea as you’re serving, and that every part of the apple is edible. Her obsession with food wasn’t an obsession with money. (Many of those coupons I clipped were for foods she would never buy.) Her obsession wasn’t with health. (She would beg me to drink Coke.) My grandmother never set a place for herself at family dinners. Even when there was nothing more to be done — no soup bowls to be topped off, no pots to be stirred or ovens checked — she stayed in the kitchen, like a vigilant guard (or prisoner) in a tower. As far as I could tell,...

In Vitro Meat

...are killed in laboratory experiments worldwide for chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics testing every year. Have you ever heard of in vitro meat? I have, and while doing my research on this topic, I came across some disturbing things. When people send their bovine to the slaughterhouse, they let the male and female bovine roam together. Because they do this, the females will sometimes end up getting impregnated by the males. When the females are then slaughtered, and they find out that she was pregnant, they then send the baby to a special processing part of the slaughter house where they stick a needle into the baby’s heart so they can get something called fetal bovine serum, also known as fetal calf serum. They then use a vacuum pump to get said serum into a blood bag. However, if a vacuum pump is not available, they get it by means of gravity or massage. As for the mother? She is slaughtered just as she would’ve been had she not been pregnant, and they do not say what happens to the baby. They then do some scientific extraction, and get the stem cells out of the serum that they just harvested from a baby calf ranging from three months, to nine months (near term), and use the stem cells to grow meat in a test tube. This method of making meat is supposed to be less cruel for the animals and cut down on the slaughter of animals for meat. I don’t know about most people, but to me, slaughtering a cow, finding out it is pregnant, then for lack of a better word, aborting the......

I also thank participants at a UCSB seminar, the Western Economics International Association’s Conference, and the University of Colorado Environmental and Resource Economics Workshop. ∗ 1 The Al Gore Effect: An Inconvenient Truth and Voluntary Carbon Offsets Abstract This paper examines the relationship between climate change awareness and household behavior by testing whether Al Gore’s documentary An Inconvenient Truth caused an increase in the purchase of voluntary carbon offsets. I find that in the two months following the film’s release, zip codes within a 10-mile radius of a zip code where the film was shown experienced a 50 percent relative increase in the purchase of voluntary carbon offsets. During other times, offset purchasing patterns for zip codes inside the 10-mile radius were similar to the patterns of zip codes outside the 10-mile radius. There is, however, little evidence that individuals who purchased an offset due to the film renewed them again a year later. This research has implications for how information campaigns, which are commonly used by policy-makers......

Meat Consumption and Vegetarian People Should Eat Less Meat or Become Vegetarian?

...Meat Consumption and Vegetarian People should eat less meat or become vegetarian? Steven Zhou Royal Roads University Marianne Kettlewell November 26, 2015 Meat Consumption and Vegetarian People should eat less meat or become vegetarian? Throughout human history, it is clear that carnivores have dominated food culture since Primitive Society. Meat has been maintaining the development in human beings for thousands of years. Unexpectedly, as time has gone by, the meat industry has caused major environmental and health problems. For instance, livestock is now responsible for 51% of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions, which negatively affects the environment. Eating lots of meats could also adversely affect health, leading to many illnesses like Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia. Therefore, some people think we should eat less meat or become vegetarian. Despite these strong arguments, personally, I do not agree with this opinion, for reasons outlined below. From a perspective of health, a vegan diet is harmful to the nutritional balance, for instance, vegetarians are short of protein and calcium. Meat, such as beef, has abundant protein, six ounces of lean, chuck beef, braised contains 49.2 grams of protein, 505 calories and 32.59 grams of fat (Dr. Decuypere's Nutrient Charts). What is protein? Protein is a nutrient that the body needs to grow and maintain itself. Next to water, protein is the most plentiful substance in our bodies. In other words, protein......

Truth

...Individual Reality and Truth Growing up my mother always told me “a person’s perception is their reality”. I remember cringing every time she said this because it was usually when the two of us were arguing about something. Of course as a teenager I did not pay attention to her, but since I’ve entered the work force I have a better understanding of her point of view. Most of the time a person’s perception is based on their reality regardless of whether the situation is in a personal or professional arena. Individual reality is when a person’s personal experience becomes the basis on which they determine their truth. Schein stated, “ Individual reality refers to what you have learned from your own experience and has a quality of truth to you” (Schein, 2010 p.118). This definition is true and is very apparent in the work environment and it is evident that one’s individual reality might not be shared by everyone, thus leading to many work related disagreements. As Schein stated “When we disagree at this level, it becomes very hard to move forward until we can clearly articulate what our actual experience base is” (Schein, 2010, p. 118). In my current role as a recruiter I work in a department of over 40 people with strong personalities. In the recruitment world most people are extroverts and have strong opinions, if we didn’t we probably would not be good recruiters. At the end of the day our main job is that of a sales person. We move fast to find good......
