Global warming is the idea that burning of fossil fuels and greenhouse gases are causing the average temperature of the planet to increase over time. Which in theory is destroying the environment and the causing a swift in the migration of animals. But what if this isn’t aren’t fault, everyone knows that the sun will die over time and there is the idea that earth is slowly getting closer to the earth every time that the earth fully passes the around the sun. There is also the idea that the sun is going to go super nova with could completely destroy the solar system. What is those are causing the earths average temperature increase. Why is it always the idea that burning fossil fuel and greenhouse gases that are causing this increase. I believe that those could possible be more of a likely hood to cause the increase.
Global warming has become an impactful idea of the last decade, with the discovery that the earths average temperature is increasing and with the discovery that the polar ice caps are shirking at an uncontrollable rate. According to Paul Przyborski, a NASA aero space engineer he stated that “Global warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earth’s average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases released as people burn fossil fuels. Causing the Earths average temperature to increase 0.6 to 0.9 degrees Celsius” (Przyborski). Paul is explaining with the increase of burning fossil fuels and greenhouse gases it’s destroying the earths atmosphere. With the Earth’s atmosphere getting destroyed its causing more solar and uv-rays to reach the planets surface Which is causing the natural structures to change and a change in the environment. Daniel Glick states, “Glacier National Park in 1910, it was home to an estimated 150 glaciers. Since then the number has decreased to fewer than 30, and most of those remaining have shrunk in area by two-thirds” (Glick). Daniel is explaining from the increase of the Earths temperature it causing the changes in the environment and causing the planet to lose its natural beauty because of us.
Global warming has started to become a global worry over the last decade. When the discovery of the earths surface temperature rapidly increasing at an uncontrollable rate. According to NASA they said “Global warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earth’s average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases released as people burn fossil fuels” (Paul Przyborski). He says that temperatures have increased from 0.6 to 0.9 degrees Celsius and doubled within the last 50 years. With this increase for the average temperatures it’s cause a shift in the amount of water in the oceans because the polar ice caps are melting.
With the polar ice caps losing half it’s size and causing the oceans to have an increase in amount of water there is multiple studies have proved this with photos of the ice caps over the last 50 years. According to Daniel Glick he tells that ” Glacier National Park in 1910, it was home to an estimated 150 glaciers. Since then the number has decreased to fewer than 30, and most of those remaining have shrunk in area by two-thirds” (Glick). He also continues saying that in the next thirty years with the rate that global warming is going on that there will be no more polar in caps and that because of global warming the effects that it’s having on the planet.

Global warming is a topic that recently has become a huge topic of interest. The reason that it’s been a topic has sparked over the years is because it people have been realizing that this is a huge problem. With the polar ice caps have lost half of it’s size in the last 20 years. With the polar ice caps losing half its size, it causes the the oceans to gain water and flood lands and lose areas of population. The reason that this is an issue is because it’s killing the planet and soon we won’t be able to live on this planet.
Go to the website 7 billion other project, I looked in the videos tab and noticed all the different topic to choose from. The one the caught my eye the most was Family. It was interesting to see how other interacted with their family or how they all cared for them in different ways but they all seem to talk about how family is always there for you and will love no matter what you do. And that they’re always going to to love you. I truly feel that what they are saying is coming from the heart because you an see and feel the emotion that comes from them when they talk about the love and are that comes with them. I truly didn’t feel like there was a point that surprised me because the way that people were describing family made me realize that my family is like that and they care for me and love me and would do anything for me in a heart beat because that who they are and truly love me.
After reading a personal narrative by Sarah Gilbert called trapped it’s interesting to look at her idea of the story. How she talks about how people are trapped in their own minds and stuck behind the feels. Like shame, anger, and fear and how they let it control how they are going to go on. And with the the ethical rules made by society it allows the be not act as themselves. It allows them to act if they re angry, then most likely they’re going to lash out on people. Something that really interested me, that even have kids she doesn’t have a car to get around only a bike and in todays environment a car is a part of life that most people need. Like many others that read this piece I hope they found themselves questioning the way that she life and how even if you truly wanted to change the way that she was living to be more like a modern person that they would see and no matter how hard you try change someone it’s impossible without they being willing to want change. Unfortunately with todays society people aren’t willing to make change, they like to life the way that they feel comfortable and nothing can be done about it. And that sucks that people are willing to go on like that without even putting in the effort to do so.
Charon talks about narratives as a way that a way to get your story out there, so people can be more accepting of them. She talks about that with people get their stories out not only is it a way to talk the world what happened, but it’s a way that memories will never die and that they will last forever. As long as that story continues to be told. Yes there is the fact that the story will change with everyone that tells it but there is always a way to get back to the main idea of the story. From I’m getting from this no matter what the story is or what it’s about it will always be a way to tell people what has happened.
With Anne Hallway telling her Tedtalk she tells the story of shame and now it holds people back from telling everyone who they are. She talks about how shame starts to hold back, with them holding in the shame and letting it control them. After she talks about how shame can control anyone she goes on to talk about how you can heal from shame but just talking about it to someone and to get your story out. She uses the example of the LGBQT community and how they are willing to come out for years and tell the world who they are and how they aren’t afraid of who they are.
Why does one bad experience shape your whole way of learning? I believe that teachers have such a big impact on the way that students look at school, because they are the ones that are suppose to be teaching the kids. And if they have a teacher that doesn’t like them or don’t like your favorite subject. the students might follow in the foots steps or the teacher and not like that subject anymore. Or a student might have had a time that someone bullied them because they weren’t as good as everyone else and instead of getting better they might have worked harder at everything else to show those kids that they are better at everything else. One bad experience shouldn’t shape you to hate something but it should turn it into a learning curve that you have to over come. Literacy narratives are an important tool for the for students to see that they aren’t alone from everyone else and that everyone has those hard ships but you just need to over come them.
After rereading Gee, The main point to me about his idea on a primary discourse. Where he goes on to tell the reader if you aren’t born with a primary discourse then it’s almost impossible to learn one. I really like that this idea because after reading the literacy narratives. They all kind prove Gee wrong and his ideas on a discourse because they all go though a struggling time in their lives that cause them to be put down or and not want to learn their discourse. And according to Gee that should show that they wouldn’t be able to learn the discourse in a later time. But everyone in their stories be the end of the story have a success story that they end up learning they end up learning their discourse and becoming good at the end. So they all end up proving Gee wrong and having a success story.
After reading Lisa Delpits story on The Politics of Teaching. She has a really strong opinion that Gee’s idea on Discourse can be looked at, at a different angle. Lisa Delpit believes that if you aren’t born with a primary discourse then that doesn’t mean that you can not learn one. Which I agree on looking at school why does one bad experience shape your whole way learning. If you have that teacher that you just can not understand and everything you did was wrong doesn’t mean that every teacher is going to be like that. So most of the literacy narratives that I read everyone had a bad experience in school. Whether it was a teacher or a subject or something in those terms. And after that class they just hated whatever it was. But why does that have to be. If you listen to Gee you would just stop at that point because you shouldn’t be able to learn it right. Well wrong according to Lisa Delpit you can learn and get anything that you put your mind to. And that exactly what pretty much every did. Some people never got it and are still struggling with whatever it was. But almost everyone had that one person that just made it so easy for them and learned or liked whatever it was and it become one of there favorite thing.
After reading Kara Poe Alexander piece on Successes, Victims, and Prodigies she focused her piece all on others literacy narratives. Starting on page 608 she introduces a girl named Rebekah and literacy narrative. Alexander congratulates her on circumstances and pedagogical methods that took her to have a passion for writing. The reason that Alexander uses other pieces of peoples literacy narratives is because it shows all the hard ships that people have with the learn process of school. Which goes along with my question, why does one bad experience change our whole out come on learning? Alexander does her research on why there is a pattern with kids literacy narratives. One common pattern that she finds is called “cultural narrative”(609). Which is the idea of a success story, in which that the student had a hard falling out of a certain subject or of a certain teacher. But then at the end of the story they find that one person that help enlighten their look on the subject and or teacher. And but the end of the story that subject becomes their favorite or they understand why that teacher or professor did what they had to do. So going back to may question of why does one bad experience change our whole out come on learning? Alexander starts to show her confusion on why it happens to almost every literacy narratives.
Looking at the literacy narratives the main pattern that I found that most people over come something. With them over coming there obstacle it made was a change that made who they are. I know for me I over came a reading disability that set me back with all my school work. But at the same time it pushed me to me who I am and never give up on anything in life. I think the most surprising thing for me was that no matter what the stories were about they always come back to a bigger meaning. And how that changed the person for the better and that they always learned something from it.
The only thing that I can find that truly connects the literacy narratives to mine was the fact that everyone learned something from there experience. And that made them who they are. And how they their experience changed them for best. And how thankful they are for what happened. Those really connect with mine because I kept over coming disability over disability. First it started off with not know to read till I got to third grade and then my stomach problems that truly took a lot out of me and then finally getting told that I have dyslexia. Which I knew that I had all my life.
But starting with third grade like everyone else I also had that teacher that changed my life when she noticed I could not read and finally started to get the help I need. I’ll never forget how helpful she was and how willing she was to get me the help I need to succeed. Then came the stomach problems I had a doctor who no matter what he was doing he would also call and check on me and make sure I got the help the need. But with the stomach problems I had to over come depression and bullying. Which as horrible as it was I made me me and I love who I am now.
