Federal Bureaucracy
After reading the lesson and readings’ this week it is very intriguing to know understand
federal bureaucracy and all the different executive departments as well as those within each
executive department. Lesson 6 states that “A “bureaucracy” is a term employed to refer to
governmental bureaus or departments which are part of the executive branch (under the authority
of the president), but mostly staffed with non-elected officials. Bureaucracies are
compartmentalized, marked by a hierarchical authority among numerous offices and by fixed
“standard operating procedures.”[1] Bureaucracies are basically government organizations that
implement public policy and that are free of political accountability or non-partisan.
The federal agencies that are most important in determining the existence and causes of
climate change according to lesson 6 include the Department of Energy and the Environmental
Protection Agency. However, after conducting further research it appears that a lot more federal
agencies are conducting research and determining the existence and causes of climate change.
According to a Center for Climate and Energy Solutions policy on Climate Change on
Adaptation: What Federal Agencies Are Doing, states that “There is a growing consensus that
regardless of our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, significant climate change is
unavoidable.”[2] The policy also discusses a report that was released in March 2010 in that the
“authors called for a National Adaptation Program and recommend new institutional mechanisms
and roles for federal agencies to mainstream the consideration of climate change across agency
operations, programs, and services.”[2] According to Executive Order 13514 – Federal
Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, this order “requires each

2
federal agency to develop, implement, and annually update an integrated Strategic Sustainability
Performance Plan.”[3] The federal agencies that can be most expected to execute a policy
response to assertions of climate change is the Department of Natural Resources under
Department of Energy through the Executive Office of the President with the assistance from the
Interagency Climate change Adaptation Task Force (ICCATF) which includes the White House
Council on Environmental Quality, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

There is an abundance of literary movements that have influenced writing since the
beginning of American Literature. While reading the story The Prophet of the Great Smoky
Mountains probably the most profound literary movement is realism. The novel itself tells a real
life story of life in the mountains that is detached from the rest of the country and not used to the
new way of life with law and rules. When the Sheriff first learns that his fugitive had been
around earlier in the day the book stated “Here he had sat eating and drinking and idly talking
while the fugitive, who had escaped by a hair’s breadth, was counting miles and miles between
and his lax pursuer.”(25) The entire book is telling a story that is more or less real life and as a
reader we begin to learn just how life was in those times. Even more was the chance to see the
conflict between mainstream towns and a back country town in the Tennessee Mountains.

In the late 1800’s all sorts of things happened from new inventions to large battles. A
story that I feel contributed to the story of The Prophet of the Great Smoky Mountains was events
of the James-Younger Gang. Granted they were bank robbers and really don’t fit into the story
per say but, they came from what I would like to call a tight nit community that doesn’t take
kindly to outsiders just like the town in the book. I am unsure if this influenced the writer at all
but it clearly gives reference to real news stories and brings an even more realistic feeling to the
novel. The gang itself seemed a lot like Mirandy Jane’s brothers, willing to do anything to keep
their family safe and would prefer the town they live in to be very close nit and one another
watch out for all in the town.
