SAT Essay: Current Event

Link of the Day

How important is diversity?  People talk a lot about the importance of getting diverse opinions or accommodating people from various backgrounds, but think about the bottom line: what is diversity and why is it necessary?  Is it necessary?  Think about plants and animals.  Then think about the Great Barrier Reef.  The Great Barrier Reef has been mentioned before on this blog, but it is important to think about whether it truly enriches our world before allowing it to substantially deteriorate.  Take a look at this article, which explains why the reef might soon be reclassified.  How do you respond to this current event?  Is this a major catastrophe?  A minor problem in the midst of much greater ones?  Or something in between?  How do you decide?
