The environment is the primary source of life and energy that allows all living things to exist, thus, it is important to consider whether innovations, technology and developments will damage or harm the ecosystem. Determining the environmental implications of using alternative fuel sources will enable the government and the concerned groups to understand and analyze how it should be used, or if it should be used at all or it is needed to find other alternative sources.
Biofuel comes from living, renewable sources, such as corn and palm oil as opposed to fossil fuel, which comes from fossilized remains of plants and animals. In contrast to biofuel, fossil fuel is considered as non-renewable because of the nature of its existence. It is expected, then, that fossil fuel supply will be depleted depending on the rate of the human consumption of such fuel source.
Right now, the main alternative source of fuel is the fossil fuel. Because of the abundance of the fossilized remains of plants and animals, fossil fuel is easy to find though it is non-renewable and considered as a limited resource (Richards, p.134). Because of this, biofuel has been discovered and there is a debate in its use as an alternative to fuel source. The main argument of biofuel proponents is the impact of fossil fuel against the environment in contrast with the environmental-friendly components and use of biofuel.
Biofuel claims that there is no carbon dioxide release when it is produced because of the photosythetic process of the plants as opposed to fossil fuel production (Pimentel, p.479). This is partly true, however, carbon dioxide is observed to be released during biomass production and its conversion to fuel (Pimentel, p.479). This is an important factor when looking at the environmental impact of a fuel source since cardon dioxide has an effect in climate change, ecological disturbance and potential damage on humans and animals. This proves that biofuel is not at all

In the Hong Kong clothing retail industry, there are several difficulties with getting the correct alternative for working hours. The workers currently in the industry are expected to work for longer periods of time with little compensation. This is causing a lack of stability with those who earn a specific living and with the ability to have the right amount of time for family and extra activities.
12 Hours without Technology.The internet is my chosen technology and recently, I did an experiment whereby I spent 12 hours without using it, and I faced various challenges. The experience led me to conclude that the Internet has become an integral part of my life and has greatly enhanced my access to and sending of information in very many spheres of my life.
5). Decision making is at the core of any business transaction or process and is, by all accounts, the foundations upon which the success of an organisation is based. Decision-making is a predicator of both managerial and organisational success, as evidenced by empirical studies.
116). Using the formula Y = Cd + Id + Gd + EX – IM wherein EX stands for export and IM for import, it is given that the total value of annual spending in an open economy will never be equal to the total output of goods and services (p. 116 – 117).

And it has created divisions because of its advantages and disadvantages. DDT was given high praises because of its capability to reduce malaria worldwide. It was even used by the World Health Organization in its quest to fight the ancient disease, malaria. However, it was
With this, it is imperative that we all save energy since it is more of a limited resource. Energy conservation promotes economic growth since the savings are used to improve fuel efficiency for personal consumption and industrial consumption, thus
The importance of sustainable development and corporate social responsibility comes with economic progress as it ensure the current and future needs of the society will be met (Ward p.15). Thus, environmental protection
