People pay for the experience everyone has. It’s not free. If you're paying a huge amount of money to reach your destination. Everyone should have the right to be respected, be saved, treated greatly. All that money everyone pays is paying them. Paying should let yourself know that you’re in excellent care. In the article Helicopter rescues Increasing on Everest is started “ the helicopter companies are privately owned and operated so it’s- you know, they have to lay out quite a bit of money. I mean. these machines, the B3’s, cost about $2 million apiece, and they’re quite expensive to operate, said Heil.”Heil means the money everyone pays to go to the rescue and the helicopters to save anyone. While other people believe the money isn't going to the rescue services it is going to other people helicopters and all other extra thing that are on the mountain. The rescue services are still getting paid to risk their life for someone else’s. Anyway, they choose and they know how much they receive and what they have to operate. Rescue services should save climbers who are risking their
Imagine yourself climbing Everest, the cold air in your lungs and your adrenaline rushing, because of the risk they’re taking. That feeling is what mountaineers crave. On April 18, 2014, an avalanche caused one of the greatest loss of life in the history of the fabled peek. Now the tragedy has sparked a debate on whether climbing Mt. Everest should continue to be permitted. In my opinion, regardless of the risk, I think people should still be able to climb Mt. Everest.
In order to continue climbing Everest, many aspects of climbing need to be improved before more people endanger their lives to try and reach the roof of the world. The guides have some areas that need the most reform. During the ascension of Everest the guides made a plethora mistakes that seemed insignificant but only aided in disaster. The guides first mistake is allowing “any bloody idiot [with enough determination] up” Everest (Krakauer 153). By allowing “any bloody idiot” with no climbing experience to try and climb the most challenging mountain in the world, the guides are almost inviting trouble. Having inexperienced climbers decreases the trust a climbing team has in one another, causing an individual approach to climbing the mountain and more reliance on the guides. While this approach appears fine, this fault is seen in addition to another in Scott Fischer’s expedition Mountain Madness. Due to the carefree manner in which the expedition was run, “clients [moved] up and down the mountain independently during the acclimation period, [Fischer] had to make a number of hurried, unplanned excursions between Base Camp and the upper camps when several clients experienced problems and needed to be escorted down,” (154). Two problems present in the Mountain Madness expedition were seen before the summit push: the allowance of inexperienced climbers and an unplanned climbing regime. A third problem that aided disaster was the difference in opinion in regards to the responsibilities of a guide on Everest. One guide “went down alone many hours ahead of the clients” and went “without supplemental oxygen” (318). These three major issues: allowing anyone up the mountain, not having a plan to climb Everest and differences in opinion. All contributed to the disaster on Everest in
Do people have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk? Mountain climbing is an activity of climbing mountains. For helicopter services, each cost about $2 million apiece and the helicopter could only take one climber. The air is very thin on the higher level of the mountain, climbers may have faced bad weather. Members of climber are increasing in the climbing season, many of them are in the death zone that there are traffic jams. People do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves in a risky because people may die, and bad environment.
Why should park rangers put themselves at risk to save those who choose to climb the mountain aware of the risk? The rangers could die up there trying to save another person’s life, which is very heroic but why should he save him. There could be another incident in the park where someone was not doing anything risky but nature struck. Mountain climbers shouldn’t be able to demand rescue services on the mountain.
“Don't be afraid to have a reality check. Taking risks is OK, but you must be realistic.” Joy Mangano. This proves that although risk-taking can be accepted, you must be experienced in the risk that you’re taking in order to be safe. My first source, Helicopter Rescues Increasing on Everest is transcribed from Robert Siegel’s radio show, and is a nonfiction radio interview whose purpose is to inform readers. Another source I analyzed is “Why Everest?” The article was authored by Guy Moreau and is a nonfiction article that is meant to inform readers. The third source I researched is Ranger Killed During Rescue of Climbers on Mount Rainier and is a nonfiction newspaper article meant to inform readers. The author of the article is The Seattle Times. People do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk because it puts more people at risk, it is cost-heavy, and because they choose to risk their lives.
Imagine someone swinging by a rope as they’re mountain climbing. Will anyone help? More and more people are climbing Mt. Everest so, the risk involved and increasing death tolls are very dangerous. And the helicopters are very expensive, almost $2 million. It’s dangerous for the helicopters to go up to the height of Everest or even just really high because if there is more than one person, it would have to go back and forth because it can one person. People do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk because we cannot afford it.
Mt. Everest’s summit has always seemed an unattainable goal for most people. The idea that most people have is that if I can climb Mt Everest, I can accomplish anything. To have the money and desire to try to attempt it is one thing, but being able to endure the punishment is quite another. Beck Weathers, one of the climbers on this particular expedition, had such severe frostbite that he had to have his right arm, nose and the fingers on his left hand amputated. Everyone on the expedition suffered the rigors of Everest. The two expert guides, Rob Hall and Scott Fischer, lost their lives due to a violent storm that ripped through during their descent from the summit. Their impaired judgment also contributed to their demise. Everest is no respecter of persons. Mt Everest is the most respected mountain in the whole world and if
Did you know that over two-hundred thirty deaths have happened on Mount Everest and that rescue services have only successfully removed thirty bodies? Those people died because they were unprepared by not having enough oxygen or they didn’t plan accordingly. Being unprepared, not being physically fit, and putting other people at risk are three reasons why I think that Rescue Services should not be allowed for people who put themselves at risk.
In all three article, “Helicopter Rescues Increasing on Everest”, “Why Everest?”, and “Ranger Killed During Rescue of Climbers on Mount Rainier” all have different points of view regarding the issue of emergency rescues of mountain climbers.
The first reason people do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk is that they are making life threatening risk to themselves. Source #2 titled “ Why Everest? ” Suggests that it is your choice if you want to make the treacherous climb. As stated on lines 9-11, “ Not everyone manages to complete the climb and some of these people pay their lives.” This shows that if you want to make a risk, you have to know that many people have died by taking the risk. There have been over 230 deaths on Mount Everest. In addition, it demonstrates that many have accomplished the climb, but many have not. Those who disagree think that if you climb Everest, you will survive; this argument is wrong because you should
In 1996, any person could challenge themselves to climb Mt. Everest, and that was not a very smart decision. “...ushering a gaggle of relatively inexperienced amateurs […] into an apparent death trap?”(1.8) This speaks about how the government rules were so lenient that people would walk in just to find themselves dead. People without the proper training and vitals such as immune system were able to risks their lives for an achievement. There should be some type of background check to see who is a caple to climb the mountain because people will die, such as they did die. Nepal was careless to let people who aren't up or ready for the risks up the
Do you think climbers have the right to call rescue services to come save them? I think they do because they are climbing the mountains for the adventure and it’s their choice. The three reasons why people should have rescue services is that everyone has the right to call 911, people has the right to call for help, and the lives that could be saved by doing so.
It is hard to make the choice, but it is dangerous to hesitate on Mt. Everest or other high mountains, and sometimes the choice to try saving a person causes the deaths of others. In my opinion, it is not worth to climb the mountain or even try to save others, because if you die, there will be nothing, but there should be something that attracts the climbers even though they know they may lose their lives. In this wide world, there are a lot of things that you can enjoy without the high risks of death, so I’d rather enjoy my life in a comfortable
Not only climbing Mount Everest can affect the climber, environment, but it can affect the local population of Nepal. According to the textbook Geography Alive! Regions and People it says on page 422 “ Porters are sometimes overworked and they are mistreated.” It is clearly testified that not everyone is nice to the porters, when they are only trying to help the climber climb safe to the summit. Another evidence, on page 216 from the book Peak, where it says “I had seen a dead person, let alone a frozen dead person.” Peak has testified that he saw a corpse just laying down face down on the cold snow on camp 4. This was new to him because he was not expecting this new thing for him. Concluding with this, climbing Mount Everest is not the best
