Steingraber is telling us that we must seek with the higher group of human rights and from the vantage explore systemic solution to the ongoing chemical contamination of our children and our biosphere.

Steingraber, Sandra.” Despair Not”. From INQUIRY TO Academic Writing. A TEXT AND READER fourth Edition by Green & Lidinsky. Bedford/St Martins 2018. (670 to 776).

Sandra addresses that we do not need to wait around for political changes before making immediate and radical transformation in our lives. This is the statement that Steingraber made by suggesting that we do not need to wait on political influence to assist in the quest to better our environment; because everyone could make change in their own lives that would help benefit not only society but also the planet itself. She also connects the environment crisis with the moral crisis. Although Steingraber provides statics that I believe are necessary because there is the potential consequence of what will or could happen if we were to continue with chemical contamination of our territory.

Barnabas, Dickson. “Can Environmental Ethics ‘Solve’ Environmental Problems and Save the World?”.

Dickson focus on the ultimate issue for the environmental ethics. The author claims that in order to pursue this profound environmental challenge facing all living beings, Dickson centers his discussion upon the possible relationships between environmental ethics and environmental problems, and whether ethical inquiry can contribute latter’s solution. Although I have specific points of difference and major reservations about Dickson’s argument. However, I oppose Dickson’s conclusion that “environmental ethics do not have a major contribution to make to the solution of environmental problems and the solution of environmental problems may not rest on ethical change. I believe environmental ethics can solve environmental problems and save the world but first the essential normative nature of environmental problems and their solution must be recognized.

In this documentary it has different authors who are involved in global warming In this film it discuses about global warming and the causes. In the film authors mentioned that global warming has become a very large issue in the world today; and humans are a large part of the problem. In my personal opion, I agreed with filmmaker because they mentioned that it is an environmental disaster that is being ignore by the very people who be champagning.
