IMPORTANT NOTE: This is what I have already come up with, to start with I would like to have an introduction and a strong thesis statement, also a conclusion. I would like to work together on this project, I can attach the sources that can help you writing this researched argumentative paper. ALSO I HAVE ATTACHED THE FORMAT REQUIREMENTS BELOW:
- Format Requirements Length: 2000 words min, 3000 words max (8-12pgs). NOTE: the Work Cited pg does not count for the word min. 10 or more secondary sources like journals (primary sources like Even if You Like Meat don’t count in the total) You’ll need academic journal articles and scholarly books (print or web-based) as sources for WA3.
Use MLA standard formatting, including 12pt Times New Roman font, double-spacing throughout, and etc.
- Avoid a subjective voice: do not use personal pronouns (I, you, me, etc.), avoid slang (occasionally with “quotes”around it is OK) and minimize questions (they create a conversational tone).
- You may have a maximum of two “web sources” (.edu or .gov). (Note: electronic files like PDFs in databases like JSTOR and Academic Search Premier and are not web sources, they are digital copies of “print” sources).
- The title should identify the paper’s topic and argument (e.g. “Stem Cell Research: Health Benefits for All”).
- Title your MS Word file: “Lastname_First_WA3_Rough_Draft” or “Last_First_WA3_Final_Draft” .doc/.docx
1. Brainstorm: (sustainability is indeed the solution to pollution: recycling)
My goal is to assess the pollution impact on the environment and bring solution such as sustainability for a better environment.
As society presses further into the 21st century there is no doubt that issues regarding the extreme degradation of the environment will become of increasing urgency and importance. Humanity’s interaction with the environment and global biosphere has led to problems such as various forms of pollution, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, climate change, and shifting weather patterns. To combat these problems, certain groups within the government and nation have been implementing sustainable solutions to combat the adverse effects of man-made environmental degradation. As simple as recycling of solid wastes is a major ecological goal. Although recycling is technologically feasible reversing the flow of materials in channels of distribution presents a significant challenge.
Research question: Advantages and disadvantages of recycling: Does it really help with the pollution problem?
2. thesis statement: (not finalized yet)
Defining each component of sustainability distinctly may help organize the action required to approach global sustainability in real life. This paper focuses more on the environmental aspects of sustainability and implementation of recycling, a pollution-reduction paradigm that involves converting waste and other used materials into reusable products.
Supportive arguments: (CITATION EXAMPLE)
The study “Informal Economy Monitoring Study”, coordinated by WIEGO (2014), supposed the quantitative and qualitative research of the complex issue of informal recycling activities, analyzing the opinion of 763 informal collectors coming from 5 cities of Africa, Asia and Southern America. Within this study, the main categories of economic benefits of informal waste recyclers have been identified. By collecting recyclable material wastes (packages, in most cases) randomly disposed of in public areas, the informal recyclers contribute to the provision of public cleaning (Aton, 2012; Asim et all, 2012). Gunsilius, Chaturvedi and Scheinberg (2011) claim, in the study they coordinated, that the informal recyclers manage to save an important quantity of wastes from disposal on landfills and waste dumps, which is the most significant ecological benefit of informal activities. The study shows that the informal recyclers from six municipalities of South America , Africa, Europe and Asia manage to recover almost 20% of the generated quantity of waste (in 3 of the 6 cities included in the study); more than 80,000 informal collectors have been acknowledged to be responsible for the recovery of approximately 3 million tons of waste per year in all 6 cities from the study.
Recycling is without any doubt one of the cheapest and quickest methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, according to a research made by Tellus Institute (2008). The reuse, recovery and recycling of materials from waste, even by informal activities, contributes to the reduction of the quantity of raw materials necessary to produce and supply goods and services, and to the preservation of natural resources and energy (Gunsilius et al. , 2011 ).
Many of the sustainable solutions such as recycling constitutes to increase attention to improve waste management and sustainable resource conservation. However, implementation of this tactic is easier said than done, as it not only requires adequate attention to the scientific nature of the problem and economics of construction, but also geopolitics and socio-cultural considerations in the area of establishment.
