1.Tons of criticism has bombed this article since it was published, to my mind. Maybe, most of people could not digest what actually argues about this article at that time but as the time elapsed and most of the global issues are becoming clear people finally are getting aware of how the facts were risen by this article. I think, there are several occasions made the author write about these world wide issues. Firstly, the population of the world began to increase rapidly after the world war II especially in developing countries and less developed ones. Secondly, in most African countries people were suffered from famine. Shortage of food appeared on the top of the list of big problems. Thirdly, cost of living is becoming higher and result of many big industrial companies’ bankruptcy showed the scarcity resources. Humankind kept on burden the balanced life on the earth, as a result some negative consequences occurred such as water problem, air pollution and shortage of lands. People started worrying about their future and about their generation. I think, this article served as a sign of warning.
2. From this article it’s a bit difficult to define who the writer is. If I consider his good skill of logic and professionally illustrated his outlooks and critiques by his article, at first I guessed, he was one of political leader. Yet, I am very interested in the author’s career life and later on I found that He was famous American ecologist. He spent his life studying human overpopulation and wrote many controversial articles which earned sever criticism by politicians.
True that although we are criticizing the writer for many points in his article, we should admit that Garret Hardin did the right thing. The right thing is to warn people of where we are going by destroying the rights of the earth. Someday we are going to pay ridiculuos amount of money for drinking the clean water, breathing the fresh air. I'm certain that we will not be paying huge money for living in another planet, yet, arguably, we will be paying this money for a small place where we can live without the issues raised in the "Lifeboat Ethics". Furthermore, I totally agree with the author in many parts of his article undoubtedly because of his field of study and work. He was an ecologist.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
