The Grand Finale’!!!

6 05 2007

I had quite a few problems with posting my blogs on my page (one of which was realizing the difference between SAVE and PUBLISH), but I finally managed to post them all. It was hard to decide which blogs were my best because I was so thrilled with almost all of them. I’ve provided two extra blogs and one extra comment just incase you do not find one of each satisfactory enough.

I hope this is what you were asking for! If not, please email me so I can change it to the format you want.

Sincerely, Maia Maszara

 

 

Four Best Blogs:

  1. “Sexy politics… (the profession of prostitution)”
  2. “China’s lack of paranoia”
  3. “Amen”
  4. “Energy Independence”

 

Extra, just in case you think one is a little lacking, blogs:

  1. “Adaptation”
  2.  “Who Screwed Up Globalization?”

 

 

Best Comment:

  1. [Comment on Cole Akin’s blog, “Is there an environmental answer?”] (provided below along with link)

 

Although Cole makes a good, and admitably obvious point, I feel that the problem is one which is expected. It is not often where a problem of this magnitude has a miricle cure which will address the entierty of the issue. I feel that rather than picking a poisen, it should be looked, as he suggested, from a utilitarian point of view, where it is only picking the best solution which will cause the greatest amount of good for the greatest amount of people. In addition to this, it is important to look not at one solution but, as the governemnts, NGOs and IGOs have looked at the problem, as a combination of solutions, incorperating each to the point where it causes an efficient amount of support with not enough negatives to serve as solutions which will create other problems. This is an issue which will require tackling from many different directions.

Extra, just in case you think that one is a little lacking, comment:

  1. [Comment on my own blog, “China’s lack of paranoia,” in response to Alan Dale’s comment] (provided below, along with link)

 

“I believe Mr. Dale adds an excellent point to my blog. I am happy he went in depth with the issue of China’s stance. The Chinese government believes that because they produce less pollution per person, in comparison to many other states which are even less advanced than China, that the amount of pollution they create should not be focused on as much. They in fact, seem more efficient and should therefore not be made to incorporate change, because so many other countries need much more pressure on adapting to a more environmentally safe approach of living than they do. And so, Mr.Dale’s second point that if other countries which pollute more per person (such as the United States) was to address their issues, then maybe the Chinese government would feel more obligated to enforce change as well. The first step of which, being the commitment to a worldwide plan, such as the Kyoto Protocol .create should not be focused on as much.

This is fine, but a set of links would have worked too.
