In the year 2030, the Golden State, also known as California, will sink in
the sea due to an earthquake reading 10.0 on the rictor scale. All famous
landmarks such as Hollywood, the Walk of Fame, the Golden Gate Bridge, and
Disney Land, will be swallowed up. The main problem is where to rebuild
Disney Land. Some people say that Disney would go well in Arizona since there
isn’t a whole lot to do there.
They don’t realize that certain problems will arise
such as: Increased pollution, increased traffic, higher taxes, increased
immigration, and increased tourism. There will be some good things that come
out of the deal such as: entertainment, new jobs, better designed freeways, and
Cough, Cough, Cough! The increased pollution in Arizona, that Disney
land will bring, will have residents reaching for their inhalers and staying indoors
in order to breathe. The Phoenix metro area is surrounded by mountains,
trapping hazardous pollution in. It is proven that pollution makes is difficult to
breath. Enjoy those cool night strolls? Well get used to walking on the
tread-mill because after one block you’ll be huffing and puffing your way back
Beeeeeeeeeeeeeep! Increased traffic will add to more air pollution as
well. Everyone will be overjoyed that there is a new amusement park in the area
and rush there on days off and vacations.
Automobile and air traffic will
increase. With that, Arizona is more susceptible to airplane crashes and
automobile accidents. Sky Harbor already has the most “close calls” in the
country. With more air traffic, those “close calls” might become even closer. My
parents have been involved in two close calls at sky harbor. There was a small
plane on the runway where they were landing.
With an increase of air traffic,
next time they might not be so lucky. Imagine being in a rush to work form your
lunch break and getting stuck in the afternoon “Disney” traffic. Beep beep will
over power the music in your car. Literally, you’re putting your job at risk by
being late. Also, speeding is a crime. Being in a rush usually means you are
going to speed.
Tickets usually come with speeding, which is added stress and
loss of money. Is all the frustration and lost time really worth it? One should not
Higher taxes will strike the state of Arizona through out. It is already high
enough. Imagine it going higher. Pretty soon a bag of potato chips will cost five
dollars! It isn’t worth it. Currently, the tax rate in California is 8.
Arizona is California’s replacement then plan on the tax rate going up to that
much or more. The high tax rate could lead to protests in front of the mayors
house. More severely, it could lead to riots and bloodshed. Is Arizona going to
turn into New York City? With out the accent of course.
New York is the immigration capital of the world, probably because it is so
easy to get to.
Every immigrant wants to get into New York City because it is so
fast paced and there is a lot of money there. If Disney Land is built in Arizona,
immigration will skyrocket to all time highs. Most of the immigrants will want to
be in Arizona because it’s already number one in growth and there will be new
jobs around where the amusement park is. Having more immigrants in Arizona
will add to automobile, as well as air traffic.
You think the snow birds are bad in the winter time, well picture that ten
times worse! Cutting you off at almost every intersection, going twenty five miles
per hour in a forty-five miles per hour zone, crowding our stores, buying all our
food at the grocery store, the list goes on and on and on. My point is if Disney
Land is built here then tourists from all over the globe will come to visit,
especially in the winter time since the summers are way too hot to stand in line
for hours while waiting for a ride.
Having increased tourism will also add to
There are good things that Disney Land will bring to Arizona. One being
entertainment. There isn’t a whole lot to do in Arizona. Our most sophisticated
amusement park is castles and coasters, which is pretty lame. Disney will bring
forth something to do, whether you ride the rides or not. It’s still fun and
exhilarating experience to walk around and be in the atmosphere.
