|AP English Language and Composition||Passage Drill|
the author the main problem with conservation is that it is what. and here
are the potential answers. well our author talks a lot of ethics and ecology [multiple choice options]
but it's not all hippie graphs and gluten-free granola. he seems to have
issues with the idea of conservation itself. check paragraph eight. in his
words conservation is paved with good intentions which proved to be futile or
even dangerous .well ahem. we all know where a road paved was good intentions
leads. so what's his problem well he never says conservation doesn't work or that
it's unethical. generally protecting the environment it's a good thing not an
evil or ineffective thing. and if we read further down he says that the ethical
frontier advances from the individual to the community. so clearly he's in support
of majority consensus. he's got no plans to become a carrot munching eco dictator.
oh he does write about the economics. but if anything he's against economics [thumbs up]
driving land use. after all not every single square foot of land has to have a
best buy on it .but he does say that the good intentions writing conservation are
devoid of critical understanding. basically he thinks that
conservationists are ill informed and over emotional. so C is correct. now
conserve your energy because you've still got more questions to go. maybe
grab a granola bar for a quick power up. what do you think. gluten-free? [woman frowns]
