This essay was written as a critical analysis of David Suzukis essay A Planet for the Taking - In the essay A Planet for the Taking David Suzuki describes Canadians odd appreciation for this great natural bounty we call our own He is an internationally acclaimed scientist who is concerned about the welfare of Canada Suzukis intended audience is the Canadian population that does not realize the grave danger they are instilling upon themselves by haphazardly taking our resources without looking at the subsequent repercussions of their actions The essay is persuasive and informative He compares various facets of science and gives reasons why none of these fields can explain why we are destroying nature The organization of the essay supports the authors views well It begins with general opinions about the Canadian population and is followed by more detailed explanations The general opinions in the beginning are well-chosen considering the audience Suzukis tone is evident when he states We have both a sense of the importance of the wilderness and space in our culture and an attitude that it is limitless and therefore we neednt worry These words suggest that we are willing to reap the rewards of our vast resources but we fail to see the harm that we are doing and will continue to do if we do not stop these actions Although his approach for explaining his beliefs changes Suzukis tone of great concern remains consistent throughout the essay After his views are presented Suzuki begins to tell us what we have done to our country and how we are destroying it Present day Canadians are compared to native Canadians which successfully serves its purpose in illustrating how for centuries people lived off the natural resources in Canada With the development of science and technology we have developed better ways of mass harvesting resources but these methods are taking at a faster rate
