Argumentative Essay

  

The week 3 paper is attached below.In the Week Three Assignment, you engaged in a case analysis of a current business problem using some of the components of an argumentative essay. In this written assignment, you will write a complete argumentative essay as described in Sections 9.1 and 9.2 of With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking (Foster, Hardy, & Zúñiga y Postigo, 2015). This essay will include a revised and polished version of your Week Three Assignment, an objection to your thesis, a rebuttal, and concluding remarks. In order to benefit the most, you should start working on your Final Project from the time you receive your Week Three Assignment back with comments from your professor.Your assignment should include the following:A revision of your Week Three Case Analysis Assignment. Your revision should represent a substantial edit of your work that fully incorporates feedback from your professor and goes well beyond correcting any grammatical or APA errors.The strongest possible objection to your thesis. After the final paragraph of your Week Three Case Analysis Assignment, start a new paragraph that introduces the strongest possible objection to your thesis. The considerations for this are detailed in Section 9.2 of With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking (Hardy, Foster, & Zúñiga y Postigo, 2015). Make sure to employ the appropriate language to introduce the objection, such as “some may object to my thesis as follows” or “according to [so and so] the thesis presented here fails to account for X” [whatever he or she finds problematic]. You can find other language to do this, of course, but the key point here is to make sure that you indicate that someone else is speaking when presenting this objection.It is also important to remember that you do research to discover good objections and not merely objections that are weak and thus easily rebutted. Look for peer-reviewed journal articles in the Ashford University Library, full-text articles in Google Scholar, or articles in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Present the opposing position fairly and in detail. This may take more than one paragraph.A rebuttal. This is a refutation of the objection that you have just presented. Start this in a new paragraph following the objection paragraph(s). Once again, follow the indications of Section 9.2 of With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking (Hardy, Foster, & Zúñiga y Postigo, 2015). You may point out an error in the objection. Or you may show that, while it is an important objection, it does not apply squarely to your argument, or does not account for facts that make it irrelevant. Above all, make sure to maintain philosophical decorum in your rebuttal. Toward this end, you should apply the principles of charity and of accuracy, first introduced in the Week One course material. See “Confronting Disagreement” in Section 9.4 of With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking (Hardy, Foster, & Zúñiga y Postigo, 2015).Closing remarks. End your argumentative essay with a paragraph of closing remarks. Provide some reflections of what you have attempted to achieve by means of your essay. You could, for example, explain how your essay sheds light on the broader controversy that it addresses. Or you could point out how your essay addresses a frequently ignored point or the unpopular side in the controversy. You could also reflect on the related matters in the broader controversy that would be useful to examine by others. Do not merely summarize what you have done in the body of your essay, and do not add new information here that would support or contradict your essay since the body of your essay should have addressed all the relevant points. See “Closing Your Essay” in Section 9.2 of With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking (Hardy, Foster, & Zúñiga y Postigo (2015).Requirements for your Assignment:Your assignment should be between 1500 to 1700 words in length, excluding the cover and references pages. Your examination should be both thorough and succinct. This is a combination that demands time and thought, so give yourself sufficient time to draft and revise. Your assignment should include citations, as well as a list of references. Both must be in APA form. Your references should include at least four peer-reviewed articles in addition to those that you will be carrying over from our Week Three Case Analysis Assignment. These references should be drawn from the Ashford University Library, Google Scholar, or the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

Effect of Business on Consumers and the Environment
Factory farming of animals for food which was created as response to the demands for
food by the industrialized nations such as the United States relies on high of natural resources
such as water, land and energy to succeed. The use of these natural resources as inputs to the
operations of factory farming adversely affect every component of the environment such water,
soil and air. Halden (2008) found that factory farmed chicken has become a source of cheap meat
with various likely health implications for consumers of these products. It is estimated that
chicken meat produced by factory farmed chicken contains three times more fat than traditional
farmed chicken. In addition, factory farmed chicken have been known to be a common cause of
food poisoning by bacteria such as Salmonella and Campylobacter. The rise in the number of
factory farms such as Perdue is a reflection of the economic system of the United States. This
type of economic system allows privately owned businesses and government to play important
roles in the economy. Private owned businesses respond to consumer’s demand for goods and
services by producing these items while government acts regulator of the business environment
to ensure compliance with standards, laws and fair practices. Governments in the United States at
both Federal and State levels regulate the factory farming industry to ensure the protection of the
environment and safety of consumers of factory farm products. The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) issues factory farms across the country National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System (NPDES) permit pursuant to the Federal Clean Water Act. However, the
United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) is charged primarily with the responsibility of
regulating animal food production and slaughter industries. The EPA and USDA have enacted
through congress several laws and initiated several programs to protect the environment and
ensure consumer safety.

The United States increased demand for animal protein through the consumption of
poultry meat has made the operations of Perdue Farms to impact negatively on the environment.
According to Halden (2008), wastes generated from the operations contained chemicals that are
harmful to all types of environmental media such as water, air and soil. He further stated that
pollution of the environment from activities of factory farm is enormous as large amounts of
organic nitrogen-rich materials are used in the production of animal feeds through fertilizers for
growing feedstuff. The waste generated from the consumption of this feed is rich in nitrogen and
because factory farm poultry lives and excretes in same place there is no plant to take up the
nutrient from the manure. The alternative use of inorganic fertilizers makes it economically
unviable for the waste to be used as fertilizers for crops on other farms. The untreated nitrogen
rich wastes are in introduced into underground water through soil leeching or discharged as
greenhouse causing climate change.
The methods of operations employed by majority of large scale factory farms such as
Perdue, can be a source of transmission of microbial organisms from animals to humans through
contamination of consumer foods by pathogens. According to Pew Commission (2008), due to
the large numbers of animals that live together in a typical factory farm facility, there is
likelihood of a large scale pathogen infection of animals that maybe unnoticed due to absence of
symptoms in the infected animal. The infected animal may transmit the pathogen to humans as in
the case of Salmonella enteric, which may be present in the egg contents. Statistically, the rate of
Salmonella enteric infection is considered low in the United States (1 in 20,000 eggs), Pew
Commission (2008) further found that the large volume of eggs produced in the country per year
(65 billion) significantly increases the chance of exposure of the pathogen to humans, which can
lead to a major public health issue.
