“Thou Shalt Not Kill”

The United States is a large country with great natural beauty and resources. However, it also has a quickly growing population and industry. President Teddy Roosevelt saw, over one hundred years ago, that there might be a time in the future when there would not be any wild places left in America. To prevent this, he created the National Park system. The park system includes large areas of natural beauty, which are owned by the federal government and maintained and protected by federal rangers. Famous national parks include: Yosemite in California, Yellowstone in Wyoming, Grand Teton in Idaho, and Niagara in New York. Individual states followed this example and now there are state parks maintained by the states as well. Both national and state parks are kept in a wild and uncultivated state and no human activity is permitted within the boundaries of the park except for tourism.

The federal agency which oversees the protection and preservation of natural resources is called the Environmental Protection Agency or EPA. This agency is responsible for enforcing the laws regarding the environment. The EPA inspects industries and cities, and monitors air and water supplies for pollution. They can find individuals, companies or communities who pollute, or prosecute polluters on behalf of the public. The EPA also provides guidelines for acceptable levels of cleanliness and works with communities to make sure they are meeting the requirements. For example, in Los Angeles during the 1980’s the air pollution was so bad on some days the city government would not allow children to go outside. However, the state government of California worked with the EPA in making very strict laws against air pollution and now the air in Los Angeles is cleaner and safer for people to breathe.

Since the 1970’s the political and social environmental movement has also succeeded in making recycling programs common in the United States. Most cities now have “curb-side” recycling programs, where individual households put paper, glass, and aluminum in bins outside their house. These materials are picked up and sent to a recycling center where they are recycled rather than thrown away. These programs have been very successful, and have brought about more environment awareness.
