On the flipside, they have been high risk sources of energy with regard to environmental and human safety. Among these sources, there are some energy sources that are low risk as compared to the commonly used energy sources (Wald 01). For instance,
The sampling strategy employed in these studies is critical in determining the validity and usefulness of the evidence obtained. In this lab, different sampling strategies were tested to determine their suitability in
Development conscious people view the impact of industrialization in terms of the economy without projecting the impact it has on the environment. On the contrary, it does not mean that the process of industrialization does not benefit the society, but a recipe of environmental problems. Many industries release their industrial effluent into the air.
One of the factors is population density. Increase in population has resulted in pressure on the limited supply of fresh water. Places such as the United States consume more water than the available fresh water sources.
It is essential to say that the authors have done enough research work on the topic and are from educational backgrounds. This article can be used as a supportive piece for my research that is about energy needs as natural resources are a major mean of fulfilling energy needs if they are utilized properly.
There have been wars in the region due to issues of water. One of such wars was the Six-Day war in 1967 (Asser 1). The war arose due to Arab countries intention of diverting the River Jordan. The river had been the main source of
The author states that is situated in the Middle East which is associated with massive oil and natural gas reserves, Israel hoped that it too would enjoy the benefits of having oil and natural gas wells ever since its establishment as a modern country. Between 1954 and 1969, the officially country began to hunt for natural gas reserves.
Proper waste management is encouraged to people and using technologies in controlling waste is highly advertised to make life easier.
There are a lot of ways to treat solid waste. However, there are three that
The chapter shows many changes regarding the ways of managing solid wastes between 1990 and 2006. Typically, there are various methods of disposing solid waste material (Lanier & Eldredge, 2005). These include landfills especially
The first method is complying with standards, certifications and labeling wooden furniture industry in order to achieve improved environmental performance. Secondly, life cycle assessment should be used
The course allowed me to get a large amount of valuable and useful information that reveals the link between the environment and human health. In particular, I did not know that according to recent studies that diesel engine exhaust is one of the factors that can lead to the development of cancer.
The author states that it is a major reason for water and air pollution, the latter resulting in climatic changes due to global warming. This has also caused market failure as the true costs of goods cannot be estimated due to all these factors. Thus a lot of inter-related problems have resulted due to population rise.
According to the Alternatives Journal, there are only about 400 of this species of whale left in the world, and many of them were being killed each summer by large ships entering and leaving the Bay. Conservationists proposed that Transport Canada change the ships’ routes to avoid the whales, and that simple measure has had a great effect.
The various principles stated in the document are very precise and in accordance with the ones learned earlier however a few very important principles are missing and must be added because they act as foundations of the process of sustainable development. The principles stated do not include the international aspects of sustainable development.
The impossible become doable and possible. This is the message of the late Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai (1940-2011) who started a movement, first in Kenya, and then later in other parts of the world as her ideas were copied by others, against all odds to preserve the environment (Merton & Dater 1).
Since time immemorial, the sun is considered as a natural source of energy. It is massive, non-threatening to the environment and, by and large, harmonious with daily and periodic energy demands. Solar energy, which generally comes from the sun's heat and beaming light, has been exploited by earlier civilizations through the use of revolutionary technologies.
It is evidently clear from the discussion that the climate system is driven by the energy received from the sunlight, part of which reflects back into space. The rest of this energy is absorbed by the land and the ocean and used to emit heat. The sun’s energy is most intense at the equator and weakest at the poles.
Oil prices will keep soaring which will ultimately stimulate discovery of oil reserves.
Both viewpoints are important and debatable but the most important concern is how organizations should be given the incentives to incorporate strategies to
The law of conservation of energy implies that energy can neither be created nor destroyed but can only be transformed from one form to another. It further states that the sum of all the energies in the system remains constant. A
The report draws the conclusion that ethical consumerism and the factors that influence individuals to consider green goods include relative costs, benefits and the ethics of each individual. This report also provides recommendations and measures which should be undertaken to ensure positive ethical consumerism and improve consideration of ‘green goods’.

According to Bill Devall and George Sessions (1995), “deep ecology goes beyond a limited piecemeal shallow approach to environmental problems and attempts to articulate a comprehensive religious and philosophical worldview" (p66).
During the period ranging between 1970 and 2004, Carbon dioxide emissions have been shown to have grown by about 80%. The atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide has exceeded the pre-industrial levels recorded from ice cores over the last 650,000 years. It has mainly been attributed to the use of various agricultural products and fossil fuels.
In the writings by Agarwal (2008, p. 48), he described pollution as “the presence or the introduction of materials or substances that have poisonous or harmful effect on living organisms on earth that include human beings, plants, and animals.” In a separate study
There was no forewarning of the intensity of the flood waters and the inundation; of the inaccessible roads and the long-lasting effect that it would leave. My family is from New Orleans and while my twin sister and I had moved out, my parents and a sister still lived there. Fortunately, they managed to evacuate in time but lost everything in the floods.
The costs of carrying out such processes tend to restrict their use. Use of the desalination process is applicable in most parts of the world with its feasibility being based on aspects of energy and eco-friendliness. Rainwater harvesting is suitable in those areas that are agriculture oriented and their rainfall distribution can allow for runoffs.
The departments for housing, water works, and transportation and community services are trying to provide alluring surroundings for the people. Making condensed structures with minimum distances among important
According to Simioni, Air pollution is mostly caused by vehicle engines that combust fossil fuels and accounts for 85% of the total air pollution. Vehicles usually burn out fossil fuels and as a product, they get to emit carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides. Tesla Motors seeks to save the problem through the introduction of electric vehicles.
While on the trip, we saw the past mining artifacts such as emergency equipment, tools, gold, copper and iron deposits. We learnt from the experienced miners about the mining methods, the history of Colorado, geology mine in totality, and the lives of the gold fever leaders in the 18th century. The trip also enabled us to test the early tools and pay attention to Tommy Knockers.
The government however has been seen to infringe on property owners rights by acquiring their land without any form of compensation. Such property may be used in the construction of roads or a military base (Malone, 2007).

Having discussed the main idea of the article the author think it wasn’t very well written. Not just the writer was in a hurry to include all the information but also he provided incomplete information about each of the technique. Had he chosen to write about one particular technique and given details about that method it would have been a better article.
