There is a saying in life that says “Treat others how you would like to be treated.” The human population unfortunately does not feel that concept also pertains to the environment. On the other hand, my group and I have come across an environmental concern that we feel humans are not made aware of. Have you ever heard how medical waste is growing? More than likely, the answer for many people is no, mainly because we are comfortable with the fact that we go to the doctor, and what happens when

Conservation Letter Dear Community, I truly believe that the new resort that is being proposed should not be built. It will hurt the ecosystem of the phlox moth and many other species. Even though by building a new resort will help the economy, it will destroy the ecosystem and all the species living near it will not be living in peace. I ask my fellow community members to be on my side and help the ecosystem out. There

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) review found that complete screening data about toxicity was available for only 7 percent of 3,000 chemicals released in large quantities in the US (US EPA 1998). Even for chemicals that have been studied, there is little information about how levels found in the environment affect human health. Laboratory data on toxicity may be of limited value, given that tests are typically conducted on animals, and do not take human behavior (such as staying inside on

don’t think the actions of the ELF helped the environmental movement as a whole. The group should have done more research on the places they bombed. The one incident that hurt them the most would be when they set the tree farm on fire. The group knew that the company was in new ownership and was known to create genetic trees. The ELF decided to burn the farm down. But what they did not know was that all of the trees were real. Therefore, the ELF destroyed actual trees, this made people

. Think of two other ways (environmental, ecological, economic, social, cultural, historical, etc.) in which conservation success could be measured? The most effective way to measure the success of conservation would be with a graph. However, one graph can measure “then and now,” as previous stated. The second graph can measure the rate a species increases and decrease. Lastly, a third graph can measure the number of deaths from poaching, sport hunting, or commercial hunting.

The apparatus used included two identical steel balls, a projectile launcher, and a pendulum. The distance traveled by a ball launched using potential energy stored in a spring was compared to the distance traveled by a ball launched using gravitational potential energy. Also

Japan has achieved and sustained tremendous economic development over the past century. This growth was highly in part to industrialization and the movement away from a agricultural society. Unlike many of it’s neighbors Japan’s industrial growth was in many ways similar to that of countries in Western Europe and the United States of America. However as we have seen in much of the Western World, this rapid growth tends to lead to many environmental problems down the road. After the Second
