Expository Essay
Why didn't the companies that David Talked to not respond when they gave him an answer to the question?
The oil companies would not know how to charge people for how much oil they took. They would have to develop a whole new distribution process.
David said that one issue was constantly throwing out oil containers. Why isn't there more demand for biodegradable plastic?
Companies would avoid researching this because it would cost more money
Why do we as a society not really care or try to be involved with our environment?
We believe that our world will last for a long time. Also it could be that we are aware about the future but won't be around during that time.
In the essay. David states that we believe to assume that our resources are so vast that we can waste them. Do you believe that?

We do constantly take what we have for granted. some things such as electricity and clean water we waste, because it is available.
