It is not utilitarian that—despite what the naive Proposition may say—realistically only few strong countries will exploit Antarctica.
Fishing provides a crucial source of protein, especially for the relatively poor, and the Antarctic oceans are underexploited compared to all other fisheries.
First of all, the fact that Opp made no arguments at all and just gave rebuttal shows who has got the hand in this debate, and that is good for us. Imagine what Antarctica could look like in the future if laws and regulations were relaxed to allow the building of a commercial airport, tourist buildings and shops, a quarry and on shore and off shore oil rigs.
Its objectives are simple yet unique In International relations. Another attraction of developing Antarctica is from the perspective of tourism.
Mining Mining is banned indefinitely with a provision for review in onwards in Antarctica under the Environmental Protocol. Under the status quo, the international community is trying to avoid this uncomfortable topic but that is just the worst strategy; the best is to have a clear legal system that is fair for all of humanity and not only a handful of states, and that is what we are proposing and has been done before at the UNwith a universal principle of Antartic internationalization for peaceful uses, avoiding conflict, something tat will arise if the Artic Treaty System goes on.
So that carbon emissions can be reduced, also it can stop major oil leaks from big tourist cruises, if we restrict the radius of the distance big cruises or cargo ships are allowed o reduce crashes and the restriction of oil fuel allowed to be carried per ship. Not to mention, their poor syntax makes it harder for us to make sense out of their already-nonsensical arguments.
Overall, tourism will create a precedent for economic exploitation that may make it harder to defend the unique status of the continent in the future. Waste disposal experts believe that as the world produces more nuclear waste, Antarctica could provide somewhere to store it.
They have adopted over recommendations and negotiated separate international agreements, of which three are still in use. The Proposition identified the wrong problem.
And without first establishing such system, it will not matter how much resource is gotten from Antarctica because the absolute majority of it will end up in the hands of few strong nations. This brings us to the question: The more vessels visiting the continent, the greater the chance of catastrophic oil spills or for rogue operators to neglect proper waste management both already problems in the Alaskan cruise industry.
A guardian of the Earth Antarctica has distinct characteristics that make its harsh environment also the most fragile. As non-renewable resources run out we need to find other sources. How would you like this to be carried out?
The last major attraction of developing and inhabiting Antarctica comes from the scientific temptation to learn about those aspects of nature that has so far remained more or less obscure for us.
Environmentally friendly tourism provides money for conservation projects. Oil and gas exploration should be allowed, both on the Antarctic continent and in the southern ocean surrounding it.
They think that we need to know what we are doing to the Earth; such as, we are spoiling their habitat by global warming because we are creating too much pollution, therefore creating the green house effect. Water rationing though is more commonly used within certain countries during times of hardship to conserve water, and it is very effective in reducing water usage for short term periods.
What treaties are in place at the moment over the area? We should also remember that ramifications of such demolition are majorly still beyond our reach. There are a few options. There are huge reserves of coal, oil and precious metals. In a world that is looking for more resources, should we allow this frontier to be broken too?
Tourism should be greatly expanded to allow as many people as possible to visit this unique environment. Firstly, the oil and fishing has had problems over the past few years.
Even just exploration would greatly damage the delicate environment, both physically and by greatly increasing the number of people disturbing the landscape and eco-system. This is dangerous for the animals because they might eat it and they would most probably die.
Recent human activities in Antarctica have been blamed by environmentalists for the disappearance of glaciers. P now bans all mineral resource activities in Antarctica other than scientific research.
Another 17 nations have signed to the Antarctic Treaty: Every year millions of tons of water are wasted through leakage, carelessness and over usage. We defended Antartica as a resource heritage for all and its resources need to be used not only because it is owned by all of us but also because it will mitigate non-renewable resources scarcity.
Their guidelines are not law.
The main resources in dispute are oil and minerals that sustain the framework of modern industry yet face severe limit in amount.There are many interest groups that agree to the development of Antarctica, the majority of them represent viable reasons towards the development. I have been convinced that the world is running out of space to dump nuclear waste but I do not believe that we should be allowed to dump it in Antarctica where the CEO-system and environment.
Antarctica Should Be Opened Up For Resource Exploitation This debate is whether Antartica's resources should be exploited (as is currently with fishing and tourism) or should not even these be exploited.
Lesson outline, debate/discussion/role play Able KS3 or KS4. The Guardian - Back to home Tourism is encroaching on Antarctica. We should protect this unspoilt place from damage by restricting the numbers allowed to visit be the introduction of.
There are many reasons to why we should not develop Antarctica. Firstly, the oil and fishing has had problems over the past few years. platinum, copper, gold and other minerals can be found.
Development is restricted. Inan agreement was reached to add a 50 year ban on mining until the year But why can’t we mine these. Your Task: You are going to be a reporter for a Sunday Supplement Magazine.
