It was January 17, 2005 and three cadets were training to become police detectives. The sergeant decided to test their skills at recognizing a suspect. He showed the first cadet a picture for five seconds and then hid it. Then he said, “That was your suspect, how would you recognize him?”
“That’s easy,” answered the cadet. “We would find him fast because he only has one eye”. The sergeant thought for a minute and then answered, “Well that’s because the picture I showed you was a profile. It showed only a side view.” He couldn’t believe the cadet gave him such a ridiculous answer, but he goes on to the second cadet. Flashing the picture for five seconds to him. Again, he asked “That was your suspect, how would you recognize him?” The second cadet smiled and said “It would be easy to catch the suspect, because he has only one ear!”
The police sergeant shook his head in disbelief then angrily responded, “What’s the matter with you two? Of course, only one eye and one ear are showing, it’s a picture of his profile! Was that the best answer you can come up with?” Extremely frustrated at this point, he showed the picture to the third cadet and in a very testy voice asked, “This is your suspect. How would you recognize him?” He quickly adds, “Think hard before giving me a stupid answer.” The cadet looks at the picture intently for a moment. Then she said, “The suspect wears contact lenses.” The sergeant was speechless. He went to his office, checked the suspect‘s file in his computer and came back. He was beaming“Its true! The suspect does indeed wear contact lenses. Tell us how you were able to make such an astute observation! “It was easy,” said the cadet. “He can’t wear glasses because he only has one eye and one ear.”
I read Cassie’s response and she has pointed the aspects of climate change really well. I agree with her saying “the challenges that developing countries must face in dealing with climate change are much more severe than those faced by developed countries”. India is a developing country and we face a lot of consequences. Though it is true that educated people do work more on this situation but it isn’t true that the developed countries are the only one facing the challenge. “Is global warming” a bad thing? Americans have been enjoying a long spell of improved weather. Actually, global warming does increase the average temperature and rainfall in some areas, which in turn increases crop yields in these areas. Similar to what Cassie mentioned, I have seen a forest fire in my country on a really large scale and now I know whom to blame- HUMANS.
