Future Generations, Environmental Issues, and Accepting Informality
Rewrite this as though you were a new pupil.
I found this week’s examination into the concept of precarity to be really interesting, particularly in relation to the economics and politics, as well as being able to frame this concept with thoughts from people like Wallerstein, who we previously covered. While reading through the material, one of the things that piqued my interest was the relationship between precarity and informality; it got me thinking about how we are willing to accept informality and turn a blind eye to precarity when it is close to home, but we often scrutinize it more when it is placed in an unfamiliar cultural or societal setting. As independent contracting grows more frequent and it appears that many employment are being replaced by robots, our economy is becoming increasingly unstable. This has been accepted socially as a byproduct of modernization and technical growth. In contrast, when migrant laborers are hired for jobs such as construction, it is frequently met with hostility by the general people, resulting in a negative impact on the economy. These reactions to precarity, I believe, are largely attributable to conceptions of diversity, which we’ve addressed extensively through Bourdieu and, more recently, with Brown. Precarity appears to be accepted when it does not disrupt cultural familiarity, even if it has economic consequences that are similar to those that produce cultural precarity. The way that diversity affects social and economic landscapes is fascinating, yet in many ways irritating if I think about it too hard
During this class, I realized a lot of things. I could see that one of the primary disciplines, “political science,” is linked to environmental issues, and that various political penalties are required to address global environmental issues. In the week five lecture, the most intriguing section was about electric cars like the Tesla. Many people believe that electric automobiles would cure all of the world’s environmental problems because they believe that pollution is caused by car gas emissions. Before I took this class, I had the same thought. However, while greenhouse gases are not produced during the operation of an electric car, they are produced in substantial quantities during the generation of power. As a result, I believe that rather than simply tackling environmental concerns, governments and politicians in each country should create legislation to establish long-term solutions.
As a political student, I was able to think about the environment again in this class, and I was able to consider what policies may be implemented for future generations. It was a little disappointing that I wasn’t able to meet the lecturer and my classmates. I was delighted to be a part of this class 🙂

Prior to taking this course, I was unaware of any of the environmental concerns. This course has educated me a lot about the world’s environmental issues and the harm that society and corporations are causing. Because framing is utilized all across the world, I was delighted to learn about it in this course. Different types of framing are used to communicate environmental issues to the public, including diagnostic, prognostic, and motivational framing. Because people’s behaviors and thoughts can be impacted by the company or corporation, positive and negative framing is critical. It was interesting to learn about the many examples, and I’ll be on the lookout for more framing employed by organizations and corporations. I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.
