1 Justin Gardiner SCIE 2320.10 April 7, 2008 Paper # 2 The story of Easter Island is a great example of extremes. At the same time that one could defend the economical genius of many practices upheld within a remote, non- technologically advanced society, one can rightly argue the insipidity of an ecological annihilation. With brief knowledge of this historical chronicle Background Easter Island, being one of the most secluded places in the world, is located in the Pacific Ocean. Positioned a monstrous 2,300 miles to the east of the country Chile, with the Pitcairn Islands another 1,300 miles to the west being the closest neighbors, and having an area of only 66 square miles, one can see the reasoning as to why it is thought of as a reclusive part of the world. If you were to look at a map and put one finger on Mazatlàn, Mexico and another on Valparaíso, Chile and meet them following their longitude and latitude lines you would find Easter Island loafing at approximately 27º south and 110º east.
