What was distinctive about the Progressive Era that enabled a shift to occur for the protection of the people?

Posted by admin on January 27, 2013 in Environment Protection with 1 Comment


I need to make a claim that evaluates what was distinctive about the Progressive Era that enabled a shift in FOREIGN POLICY to occur for the protection of the public good. I am really stuck, I need to know specific characteristics, who was in charge, and what was the Progressive Era. It needs to occur for the protection of basically everyone.

Thanks!

Your question begs for a better answer but from my point of view the Progressive Era you are speaking of didn’t start until President Obama and the Senate and House of Representatives got a majority of Democrats in power. This President is more centrist than progressive but from the Bush years which were extreme right wing politics, it appears he is a leftist. People aren’t safe when the politics of the right seek war and act to protect corporations (including multinational corporations) over the interests of the people they are suppose to represent. The Bush presidency brought down many public interest laws which were in place to protect us, including laws that made or drinking water safe, laws which restricted polluting the environment, the air we breath too. The Bush years sold off much of our public land and they tried to grab our National Forests and sell the land to their wealthy contributors. They opened up our public land for strip mining and cutting the forests down. They drastically cut the budgets from the people that inspect our food and safety of the products we buy. By creating some prisons and torturing our enemies he empowered our enemies and made entire nations hate us and gave many the excuses they needed to join Al-queda to kill Americans and westerners. Torture is an ugly thing and should not be practiced by peaceful people plus, it has been proven to not work. Bush and his people allowed a huge shift of wealth away from the middle class and toward the wealthy class by giving them two giant tax breaks. This has led to the destruction of the middle class. Allowing our manufacturing and service industry’s to leave the country and work establish themselves in other countries has also taken many jobs away from our people. Have you noticed how little stuff is made in the USA. There is quite a lot on the internet from facts you can gleam but much has been buried by the right. They don’t want you to know the facts.

How would I get a intern-like job (non-payed) in a renewable energy company?

I’m 16, and will be 17 by the summer, I’m still in Secondary school and I would really like to get some sort of insight into renewable energy over the summer, as I would like to persue a career in that field. I live in Ayr in Scotland, so it would have to be near there possibly out to glasgow. I’ve no idea how to go about it, and I don’t know what company I could go to either. The company I could think of is EDF Energy. I thought of maybe writing an email and asking if I could come in and maybe help out, getting coffee etc. Any help would be great!

Research a list of companies in your area, or close to where you live. Look under their "careers" page on their websites to determine if they have any internship positions available. If they do, apply for them. If not, contact the company and describe how interested you are in Renewable Energy and that you would be willing to intern/help over the summer.

I hope this helps! Being proactive usually helps in cases like these. You never know what will happen if you don’t try!

What can we do to help slow down the effects of global warming?

Posted by admin on January 25, 2013 in Global Warming with 16 Comments


This is for a debate, my opposition says global warming isn’t that big of a deal…But is it? Who is contributing to it? Why is it happening? Where is the evidence? What happens if we do nothing? Why have humans in general waited so long to actually see the problems? When did global warming become such a big deal? WHAT CAN WE DO?

A lot of questions, I’ll very briefly address each one…

<< Global warming isn’t that big of a deal…But is it? >>

Yes it is, some people will tell you otherwise, chances are they’re not qualified to speak on the subject. Those who have studied it will tell you that it is a big deal. A bunch of people with a great deal to lose if global warming is real is the oil companies and major organisations. Recently at a meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the CEO’s of the world’s 1000 biggest corporations unilaterally declared that climate change was "the most critical problem facing humanity"

<< Who is contributing to it? >>

Pretty much everyone on the planet. At some stage in the process most things are responsible for greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming – manufactured goods, power, light, transport, communications etc

<< Why is it happening? >>

Unlike most of the gases in the atmosphere, the greenhouse gases such as water vapour, carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have a physical property which allows heat from the sun into the atmosphere but traps heat from the Earth preventing it escaping into space. Although these gases exist in very small quantities it’s enough to make a big difference; so much so that without any greenhouse gases the planet would be 33°C (59°F) colder than it is. Even a small increase in atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases contributes to global warming.

<< Where is the evidence? >>

The scientific evidence exists in a multitude of reports and research papers that have been compiled over the last 100+ years, ever since global warming was ‘discovered’.

The physical evidence can be seen right around the world from the melting of the Arctic, Greenland and Antarctic Ice Caps, the retreating glaciers in every mountain range, the melting permafrost, the earlier arrival of migratory species, the loss of low lying islands, the expanding deserts etc etc.

<< What happens if we do nothing? >>

The situation will get infinitely worse. Each year 150,000 people die from the effects of Global Warming, a further 10 million are infected because diseases have spread; these figures are set to double each 25 years. Crop failure rates are increasing and by 2050 it’s estimated that in some places there will be as much as a net 50% reduction in crop yields leading to devastating famines. More and more land will be lost due to droughts, expanding deserts, rising sea levels etc. It’s estimated that if nothing is done then by 2100 as many as 2 billion people will be forced to migrate.

<< Why have humans in general waited so long to actually see the problems? >>

The blame for this lies squarely at the door of the politicians. For decades scientists were warning about the effects of global warming but it didn’t suit the politicians to act. It wasn’t until 1988 that Margaret Thatcher (then Prime Minister of the UK) took notice and acted.

<< When did global warming become such a big deal? >>

It was established as scientific fact in 1896 but at that time it wasn’t a serious threat because greenhouse gas emissions were much less than they are now. Serious concerns were raised by scientists from about 1950 onwards. In 1988 it made it onto the political agenda, the UK government was instrumental in convening the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio. This was attended by 172 countries and brought global warming to the attention of the world.

<< WHAT CAN WE DO? >>

As individuals we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels by conserving energy, recycling, reusing and reducing our demand for goods and services. This will only slow down global warming. To stop it altogether requires something much more ambitious and in this respect scientists are looking at schemes that could be implemented on a global scale aimed at removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere or reducing the amount of heat received from the sun.

The success of the firm is partially depends on its environment.While managers of the business cannot control?

The success of the firm is partially depends on its environment.While managers of the business cannot control the part of the business environment, they can attempt to make business decisions that benefit from that environment or that offer protection against adverse conditions.Asses how the performance of he business would be affected by economic conditions within the local area and across the country, thereafter make suggestion on how the management can protect the organization from adverse condition.

Partially true.

During times of recession if your business sells non-essential items than more than likely sales will drop. Vice versa if the economy is during well.

Management can only reduce the price, market it better to keep sales at the same level.

Web exclusive: Moving fast on renewables

Posted by admin on January 25, 2013 in Renewable Energy with 1 Comment


In this web exclusive interview, Need to Know correspondent Rick Karr sits down with German environmental economist Claudia Kemfert, who heads the department of energy, transportation and environment at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin).

Karr and Kemfert discuss Germany’s Energiewende. Literally, the word means “energy turn,” and it describes the country’s bold plan to shift from nuclear and fossil fuels to Renewable Energy sources. According to the Economist, the Energiewende was “dreamed up in the 1980s, became policy in 2000 and sped up after the Fukushima disaster in March 2011.”

Following Fukushima, German Chancellor Angela Merkel reaffirmed Germany’s pledge to Energiewende, but insisted the country’s targets be met without the use of nuclear power. Germany’s goal now stands at 65 percent renewables on the grid by 2040 and 80 percent — the most the country believes it can achieve with existing technology — by 2050.

“The German public strongly supports renewable energy,” Kemfert said. “They strongly support the Energiewende and this is why our politicians react, and this is why German consumers are willing to pay more for electricity.”

Rosalind Peterson is California President and Co-Founder of the Agriculture Defense Coalition (ADC). The ADC was formed in 2006, to protect agricultural from a wide variety of experimental weather and atmospheric testing programs.

Ms. Peterson discusses evidence that persistent contrails increase cloud cover and increase temperatures.

Ms. Peterson also founded California Skywatch in 2002, when she began researching atmospheric testing and weather modification programs. The two websites are separate entities but are linked together by issues listed alphabetically in the “Categories” section. (The California Skywatch Website is merging permanently with the ADC on January 15, 2011.)

How could I get an insight into renewable energy, with possibly a summer internship?

Posted by admin on January 23, 2013 in Renewable Energy with 2 Comments


I’m 16, and will be 17 by the summer, I’m still in Secondary school and I would really like to get some sort of insight into renewable energy over the summer, as I would like to persue a career in that field. I live in Ayr in Scotland, so it would have to be near there possibly out to glasgow. I’ve no idea how to go about it, and I don’t know what company I could go to either. The company I could think of is EDF Energy. I thought of maybe writing an email and asking if I could come in and maybe help out, getting coffee etc. Any help would be great!

Hi Alice. Not being from Scotland, or the UK, I would offer two suggestions. First, get a subscription to a magazine called, "Home Power." We started reading it 13 years ago, and 12 years ago we went to one of the energy fairs listed in the magazine. Today our home is powered by the wind and sun, and we teach solar power seminars at the local schools, and host field trips to our home for the kids regularly. You interest is a bit deeper than just setting up some panels, and that’s great. Any possibility of finding your way into an internship would pretty much require you have some expertise in the area, not schooling, just better than basic understanding. Starting with that magazine is a great first step. In the back is a calander section that lists happenings, such as fairs.

There is a really big fair each year in Aberdeen each May, I don’t know if you can work out a trip there, but the great thing about a fair is you can learn a lot quickly, and meet just about anyone worth meeting if you want to get involved somehow. The fair we went to had the entire editing staff for that magazine in one booth, and since then I’ve contributed a couple articles for them they have published. There might be other fairs closer to your home, but I’ve clipped the website to the group hosting the Aberdeen one below for you. Try googling, "Energy Fairs in Scotland."

Any up and coming technology or business is always looking for someone like yourself, who is interested in the technology or work, has energy and some knowledge, and wants to help. The job facing you is just connecting with the right people. An energy fair is the best place to go if you can get to one and have an interest in working in Renewable Energy. The second link is for a listing service that have some energy fairs listed in Scotland, worth looking into in your case. It’s a great field Alice, and I encourage you to get involved any way you can. Start by learning all you can about the technology. Take care, Rudydoo

What is a good way to reduce Global Warming and how would it work?

Posted by admin on January 23, 2013 in Global Warming with 11 Comments


Global Warming is a fast growing issue. If something is not done soon we may destroy the very place we call home. What are the ways you would stop this? How and Why?

some eco friendly ideas

Global Warming is in theory reversable,but it will mean global co operation between all countries ,and taking into account human nature and the world politics ,it is unlikely that this will happen,

At least not untill we are all in the middle of planetary disastres and it becomes a battle for the survival of humanity every where.

SOLUTIONS
if you want to help the planet ,plant a tree every week ,if everyone on the planet did we we would be able to reverse the destructive processes

reduce carbon emisions,and they are already working on that by alternative forms of energy and regulations on carbon producing materials,aerosol cans,burning rubbish,industrial chimneys,powerplants etc.

the capture of carbon and the production of water and assist the aquiferous manta.

the world bank pays large subsidies for reforrestation to capture carbon and the best tree for this is the Pawlonia

Waterharvesting projects ,such as millions of small dams.to redirect over ground waterflows from the rains into the ground to supply subteranian water supplies.

the protection of existing forrests.

stop building more highways,urban planning to include vegetation stop building cities encourage people to return to the land to conduct their business from there which now has become possible thanks to the internet.

education to motivate people to auto sufficiency by building more home food gardens.

education on environmental awareness
education on family planning to curb over´populaion

Agricultural education and improvements to follow the principals or sustainability and soil management.

more environmental or land ,design to prevent bush fires,such as–fire breaks

,more dams.regulations and control for public behaviour

alternative effeciant public transport to discourage the use of the internal conbustion engine

recicling wastes,limit water use
