Two Environment in the News log activities. Each log entry must describe an environmental event that has happened since June 1, 2015, is tied in some way to human effects on the environment, and is related to the ecosystem and population ecology.

Two Environment in the News log activities. Each log entry must describe an environmental event that has happened since June 1, 2015, is tied in some way to human effects on the environment, and is related to the ecosystem and population ecology. A good log entry describes the event, explains why the event caught your interest and is based on a strong reference source. The event can be something that humans did to the environment or something that the environment did to humans

What are the health  hazards associated  with  the operation? 

You have been tasked with identifying health hazards associated with a          production line at a manufacturing facility.

Employees at the beginning of the  line use a solvent to  clean the         surface  of medium-size auto parts, and then  they place the parts on a  moving    line. As  the parts move along the line, an  employee sprays them with a         powder  coating,  and the parts move through an oven.  Another employee removes    the   parts from  the line and places them in slots in a  cart for       transporting   to   shipping.

You have been provided safety data sheets  for the solvent used for cleaning    the parts (attached) and the  powder coating that is  used (attached). Use the JHA form to  identify the potential     health  hazards  associated with the process. Attached is the….

Conduct a virtual field trip on which you will explore your choice of geologic feature in your hometown or region. Examples may include: local caves, lakes, glacial deposits, rock formations, etc.

Prepare a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation about the geologic feature in which you:

Identify the feature, Summarize the relevant geologic history of the region, Discuss the formation and age of the feature, Assess the role of the hydrologic cycle in shaping the feature, Discuss the role of erosion and/or weathering on the feature, and Identify unique aspects of the geologic feature (such as how it has changed over time, where similar features found, and so on).

Include relevant pictures or examples of the feature, including detailed speaker notes as if you were narrating the presentation.

Format in-text citations and reference slides….

Analyze the factors (such as physical, cognitive, behavioral, financial, and emotional) that can influence your chosen environmental issue.

Environmental Health Issues

You have learned about the various environmental issues, including physical, chemical and biological agents that impact our health.

Based on your understanding of the environmental issues, create a 5- to 6-page Microsoft Word document that includes the answers to the following questions:

Examine the regulatory agencies related to your chosen environmental agent? What is the role of these agencies? Discuss the environmental standards related to your chosen agent? How will these standards decrease the hazards in your local community? Analyze the factors (such as physical, cognitive, behavioral, financial, and emotional) that can influence your chosen environmental issue. Describe the impact of your chosen environmental issue on a diverse population. Support using examples. Evaluate the ways in which the environmental issue will impact the involved staff…..

propose some regulations that can reduce water pollution and discuss how can we reinforce such restrictions/regulations?

Water sources

No unread replies.No replies.

Federal laws control water use, prevent misuse, and preserve certain water areas and habitat in ways that address the different dynamics of groundwater, aquifers, runoff, and irrigation. Your assignment for this unit is to write a micro-essay of at least 250 words that discusses the sources of water pollution and if more restrictions/regulations should be posed on those industries/countries that contribute most to the water pollution? If so, propose some regulations that can reduce water pollution and discuss how can we reinforce such restrictions/regulations?

NO plagiarism, in-text citation is very important and shoul follow mla fromat.

What causes hurricanes? What destroys hurricanes?

Living in South Florida has many advantages and also includes many disadvantages, including the persistent threat from hurricanes (link). From what you have learned from this class:

What causes hurricanes? What destroys hurricanes? What are scientists saying about the link of climate change and hurricane activity? With regards to our growing population, especially along the cost, why are we especially prone to huge losses when a hurricane hits? With regards to hurricanes and South Florida, if you were in a position to grant or deny building permits, what would be your chief concern when assessing these permits?

Make sure to:

Write a short essay or paragraph of at least 300 words. Use concrete examples/details and avoid generalities. Address all questions. If you researched your topic and are using….

What and how do each of these things contribute to the destabilizing of Earth’s atmosphere and its climate? 1a. cows? 1b. cars? 1c. chainsaws?

Earth’s Greatest Enemies?

Climatologist James Lovelock (http://www.jameslovelock.org/) (originator of the Gaia_hypothesis ) once said that Earth’s greatest enemies were the Three C’s: cars, cows and chainsaws because of their contributions to destabilizing planetary climate.

A. In this final Discussion Forum, you will answer the following question to show your ability to find connections among the environmental issues that you have learned about in this course. Number your responses so I can see you have addressed each part.

You must cite specific evidence from any Unit of the course to support each of your responses. Each contributing factor is worth 4 points x 3 = 12 points.

1. What and how do each of these things contribute to the destabilizing of Earth’s atmosphere and its climate?

1a. cows? 1b. cars? 1c. chainsaws?

Reminders:

Loss of land plants because of human activities will not result….

Environmentalists say that there is an ever-increasing change in weather, storm winds, hurricanes, tornadoes, and abnormally high and low temperatures.

The consensus among scientists is that these dramatic changes in the climate are due to global climate change.

Feel free to use that or make up a new one it ultimately doesn’t matter to me
