Explain what is our personal responsibility toward the natural world, toward what we term our natural resources? What power do we have to influence events?

What is our personal responsibility toward the natural world, toward what we term our natural resources? What power do we have to influence events? Of course, the word resource implies something to be used, yet how far do we go? Read about the conflicts between jobs and the environment that has been prominent in this country? Does the need to preserve age-old redwood forest outweigh loggers need for paychecks in California? Are fish in the Gulf of Mexico more important than the jobs for the commercial fisherman living along the coast? Conflicts such as these are usually settled in the courts. Create a list of emotionally charged diction used by both sides (literature suggestions: Le Guin’s “May’s Lion,” Abbey’s “Eco-Defense,” Dillard’s “The Present,” Huxley’s “Time and the Machine”). Please include work cited, 750-1000 words, MLA format due 7/29 6pm
