Help Save the World

Throughout MaddAddam, we come to see how climate change is a big issue in the book and also how it reflects in the real world, and how this affects different living species in different parts of the world. The main focus of the corporations in MaddAddam is to help save the polar bears from the climate change in the arctic that is melting.

In our society, we have many companies and corporations that have been starting to take climate change more seriously, and have started to make big changes regarding their product consumption. Also, many organizations in the world have come together to share their thoughts and ideas on different aspects that involve climate change.

There is an organization based in Canada called Climate Action Network – their goal is to work together by involving families and communities all across Canada to keep them safe and come up with solutions to help the environment and save our planet. Members have to understand that how they use and generate energy comes from the use of natural resources such as water and land in order to prevent very dangerous human interference with the climate system.

The organization also manages to protect the quality of life of not only people, but of animals and plants as well. With the use of advanced technology, this organization looks for ways to develop their natural resources and find ways to change the way we use appliances and the way we build our community.

What are your thoughts on climate change and how do you think we can help the world be a better place? Do you think it can be possible to save the species that are living in areas where climate change is more present?

This is just the Veganning

Environmentalism is the most obvious theme in The Year of the Flood because of the characters such as Gardeners and the environmental disaster that is the frame of the whole story. This group condemns the killing of any sort of animal, even killing a fly requires praying for forgiveness. The use of non-recycled materials and material attachment plays an important part in the novel. In the very beginning of the novel we come to know that the waterless flood has destroyed everything and everyone and only two humans survive; Toby and Ren. The two main characters are members of God’s Gardeners and they both believe that it is their duty to survive God’s Waterless Flood and to re-populate their world in a more pure, earth-loving way. The Gardeners believe that man was created by God to live in peace with animals, forming a sort of species friendship. We also see throughout the novel how the Gardener’s only eat vegetarian meals, which shows how they respect animals. Although this book is all fiction, some things mentioned in the novel are a lot likely to be present in today’s world, such as cruelty towards animals.

Cruelty means inflicting pain and causing suffering. Animal cruelty is a nationwide problem that is rapidly growing in today’s society. Animals are being beaten and starved to death every day and millions of animals die each year because of their heartless owners. Most people don’t know what is actually being done to the meat that they eat. Animals being beaten and left alone in unsanitary conditions with no food or water is just the beginning on what happens in these slaughterhouses.

Veganism is spreading fast and it has become more popular with the help of many different publicities. People need to educate themselves on what is actually being done to their meat before they eat it. Think of it this way: wouldn’t you feel better about yourself knowing that an animal didn’t have to go through a lot of torture to end up on your plate?
