The Climate Change Bill
Benn noted that the Climate Change Bill focuses on “sustainable development” and encapsulated “everything we do as a country.”9 To this end the UK’s Climate Change Bill, unapologetically takes the position that:
There is no longer any real debate over the fact that climate change is happening and that man-made emissions are the main cause.10
To this end the Climate Change Bill is single-minded of purpose. That purpose is to enforce a regiment that modifies sustainable development…Read Text
The blast did not only blaze the buncefield depot but also destroyed the emergency water supply system and entirely hindered perimeter roads.
The blasts and explosions are identified as having severe affects on both short-term and long-term wellbeing of people who experience it or are exposed to the burning pollutants. Hoek, Bracebridge and Oliver carried out a research to identify the impacts of this devastating incident on people’s health. The study was designed to measure the medical…Read Text
Position Paper on Global Warming
Firstly, upon cutting the trees the CO2 present in the trees is led out into the atmosphere. Secondly, trees are naturally equipped to absorb the CO2 from their surroundings; this natural cycle is disturbed when the trees are no longer present to absorb CO2.
Toepfer explained another reason of the emergence of global warming; the depletion of ozone layer (2). Ozone layer serves as a shield (of molecules) from the intense heat rays from the sun. Toepfer stated after years of usage of manmade…Read Text
International Environmental Analysis
INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS: A CASE STUDY OF TATA GROUP Month, Year Introduction The Tata Group which is an Indian corporation based in Mumbai has spread its wings into foreign markets. Its operations in motor vehicle, ICT, steel and tea have succeeded due to proper management and application of appropriate corporate strategies. The internationalization of Emerging Economy Multinational Corporations (EMNCs) therefore is congruent to proper management of business activities within value…Read Text
Later, Roger Revelle, and Hans Suess dispelled this school of thought by discovering that there was a complex chemical buffering system preventing the sea water from absorbing large volumes of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Since then, the potential of humans contributing to global warming was raised (Harding, n.d).
Human beings should not be blamed for the ever-increasing levels of global warming. The increase in atmospheric temperatures may be attributed to the more vigorous solar energy’s…Read Text
The enviorment now and then
Topic The Environment Now and Then The environment we live in is sustained on the natural law of nature and any manipulation by human beings can lead to the destruction of planet earth. The instability of environmental condition and its pollution has been a concern for people even in 20th century. The introduction of industrialization has been criticized by many anthropologists and scientist for degrading the natural environment of human being. They considered the overpopulation and surge of…Read Text
Assessing the impact of climate change on environmental flows at the basin scale
This is because it is when such authentic quantifications are done that subsequent intervention that address risk management can be undertaken as contingency measures to addressing the trend (Kingston et al, 2009).
Coupled with the background that a vivid background quantification of the risk size of climate change on environmental flows at the basin scale is necessary, there is going to be the use of a cosmopolitan assessment approach that makes use of prescriptive, hydrological index (Laize…Read Text
BP Oil Spill
During ocean vessel spills, it is difficult to compute the exact amount of oil spill (Davidson 8). When a boatload of bunker oil sinks, it is difficult to estimate the amount of oil spill. With the ship’s crew drowned or lost in the ocean current, the oil spill cleanup team can only guess the amount of the ship’s oil spill. There is a possibility that some of the ship’s bulk oil products were transferred to other ships before the oil spill incident. Likewise there is a possibility that…Read Text
Microbial food poisoning
Unfortunately, it has been noted that very few people visit their medical practitioners on food poisoning cases. UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) for instance reports that although roughly 5.5 million people in the country are affected by food contamination illnesses each year, only about 100,000 cases are tested and determined to be actual food poisoning, Teinaz (2006). In the USA, roughly 48 million people are victims of food poisoning though only about 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000…Read Text
