Any class that takes place online as opposed to a class being conducted on campus grounds would introduce less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from lack of transportation due to students not having to make the drive to and from class meetings. The use of facilities such as bathrooms or any energy used such as power for the classroom and air conditioning for the building may also contribute to our carbon footprint and use of water facilities. http://myfootprint.org/en/your_results/?id=2788767 After taking the footprint quiz and reviewing my results it became apparent how every person on the planet could not live the average life style of people in our country. I say this because most of my results are very close to the national average and my score states 6 earths would be required for everyone in the world to live similar life styles. Only one of my footprints is higher than the national average which is the food footprint and my carbon footprint is a close tie with our average.
With my high protein Paleolithic diet my food consumption footprint was relatively high. I have many snacks and full sized meals throughout the day as long as there are groceries in the house. This is in order to teach my body not to store fat and is part of my cross fitness nutrition plan that I have worked out with my trainer. The way I understand it, our bodies’ anatomy has only changed a fraction of a percent sense the days of the cavemen when the average man was more athletic than our modern day Olympians. This is primarily why I consume 3 balanced meals completely grain and dairy free combined with snacks in between meals. My diet is composed of gluten free and organic produce such as grass fed meat and cage free chicken eggs. The quiz gives you perspective of just how extreme our population has become sense our planet can no longer sustain the diet our bodies have been evolved…...

...Science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.[1] In an older and closely related meaning (found, for example, in Aristotle), "science" refers to the body of reliable knowledge itself, of the type that can be logically and rationally explained (see History and philosophy below).[2] Since classical antiquity science as a type of knowledge was closely linked to philosophy. In the early modern era the words "science" and "philosophy" were sometimes used interchangeably in the English language. By the 17th century, natural philosophy (which is today called "natural science") was considered a separate branch of philosophy.[3] However, "science" continued to be used in a broad sense denoting reliable knowledge about a topic, in the same way it is still used in modern terms such as library science or political science. In modern use, "science" more often refers to a way of pursuing knowledge, not only the knowledge itself. It is "often treated as synonymous with 'natural and physical science', and thus restricted to those branches of study that relate to the phenomena of the material universe and their laws, sometimes with implied exclusion of pure mathematics. This is now the dominant sense in ordinary use."[4] This narrower sense of "science" developed as scientists such as Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton began formulating......

Enviromental Science

...The Theory of the Leisure Class proposes that economic life is driven by the vestiges of the social stratification of tribal society, rather than by social and economic utility. The supporting examples, contemporary and anthropologic, propose that many economic behaviors of contemporary society (c. late 19th century) are variants of the corresponding tribal-society behaviors, when men and women practiced the division of labor according to the person's status group, thus, the high-status people practiced hunting and war, whilst the low-status people practiced farming, cooking, et cetera. Such a division of labor was due to the barbarian culture of conquest, domination, and exploitation, wherein, once in control, the conquerors assigned the labor-intensive jobs to the vanquished people, and, for themselves, assumed the military profession, and other less labor-intensive work, the elementary leisure class. In practice, it was sociologically unimportant that the low-status occupations provided greater economic support to society than did the high-status jobs of soldier, hunter, etc. Moreover, within an unconquered tribe, certain men and women disregarded the collective division-of-labor system, and emulated the behavior of the leisure class, the high-status social group of the tribe. Although the leisure class did perform some useful work, and so contributed to the collective well-being of the tribe, such work tended to be minor and peripheral, functioning more as symbolic......

Key Enviromental and Supply Chain Factors

...time like this to satisfy this ever growing demand. The major concern of all transporters has always been the state of the roads. It is now more evident that the government is seriously addressing the issue of ensuring there are quality roads and with the support of lending institutions such as African development bank and World Bank we can expect even more and better roads to be constructed. Key to all this is the just unveiled project of LAPSET with roads linking three countries Kenya, Ethiopia and south Sudan. With south Sudan just having got independence and knowing the abundance of natural resources they have been endowed with any entrepreneur should know that this is definitely fertile ground for starting a business venture. ENVIROMENTAL FACTORS External environment Political legal East Africa being a region comprised of third world countries all respective governments are geared towards enacting laws and providing a political environment that will make commerce and business activities more favorable. Currently it is working towards ensuring that there will be free trade among member states of the east African community. Kenya being a fully capitalistic country it is a favorable place for people who want to utilize and exploit wealth creation opportunities with minimal government intervention. Furthermore the Kenyan government has just allocated 10% of its budget to promote youth entrepreneurship and innovation projects hence the government is ensuring youth...

Enviromental Fundamentals Paper

... Running head: ENVIROMENTAL SCIENCE Environmental Science Star Heard ENV/100 July 14, 2012 Professor Restrepo Environmental Science When I hear Environmental Science I think of how science plays a role in the environment but the proper definition is Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary field that combines information from many disciplines, such as biology, geography, chemistry, geology, physics, economics, sociology (particularly demography, the study of populations), cultural anthropology, natural resource management, agriculture, engineering, law, politics, and ethics Berg and Hager (2009). Environmental Science is all about understanding the environment, how it works and how to protect it in the future. Science and technology has affected the environment for the good and bad. One thing that has been good for the environment is hybrid cars because it cuts out the toxins that other vehicles give off which is a whole lot better for the environment. Environmental sustainability is very important because we need to know the changes the environment goes and make changes where need be. I feel like this should be studied because the world is changing everyday and it is an important to know what’s going on. Air pollution is getting worse and by having somebody studying this they can find a solution and help improve air pollution. Mankind impact on Earth has really affected the way the world is today, this wasn’t internal but sometimes with technology there is a...

Enviromental Science Final Project

...Learning Ways to Deal with Energy Conservation Talesha Binns SCI/275 November 10th-2013 Shannon Gumtau Learning how energy conservation really works Over the past nine weeks, I have learned some wonderful things about science. Things like Different kinds of environmental issues, conservation vs. preservation and different resources plans for the environment. From all the reading and my own research, I decided to do my final project on energy conservation because this is something we are dealing with on a daily base and we need to know how to make things better not only for the environment but for ourselves as humans. My plan within this paper is to educate people on ways to conserve energy. Some atmospheric issues when dealing with energy are things like driving, heating and cooling your home, What is Energy Conservation Energy conservation is something very important and the issues we are having with it should not be taking likely. Let us define energy conservation. Energy conservation (According to “Energy Conservation" (n.d.)) “Energy conservation refers to reducing energy through using less of an energy service. Energy conservation differs from efficient energy use, which refers to using less energy for a constant service.” energy needs to be conserve so that we can protect our environment from certain changes, and to save what resources we have now for our upcoming generations. I feel that this is when our renewable sources......

Enviromental Law

...CONSTITUTION AND ENVIROMENTAL LAW Environmental protection has found a special mention in the Indian constitution. The preamble to the Constitution provides that our country is based on socialistic pattern of society. The basic aim of socialism is to provide a decent standard of living to all, which can be possible only in a pollution free environment. Also, in a democratic republic, people have the right to know and access information on government policies which is very important for the success of environmental policies. The starting point of environmental protection is the fundamental rights and directive principles of state policy which underline our national commitment to protect and improve the environment. The interpretation given to article 21 of the Constitution contained in the Fundamental Rights has added new dimensions to the quality of life and its relating effect on the environment. The Constitution of India as originally enacted did not contain any specific provision to deal with environmental pollution though Article 47 made an indirect reference to improvement of public health as one of the primary duties of the state. Article 51 (c) provides that the state shall endeavour to foster respect for international law and treaty obligations in the dealings of organised peoples with one and another. Article 253 of the Constitution specifically empowers parliament to make any law for the whole or part of india for implementing any treaty, agreement or convention...

Enviromental Ethics

...under threat. Unless we tackle climate change humans will no longer be able to inhabit the planet and will become extinct. This view is somewhat compatible with Christian approach of creation spirituality but does face some criticisms from both religious and secular theorists. Dawkins argues that the idea of mutual benefit is inconceivable and incoherent. He suggests that survival of the fittest proves the exact opposite responding to conditions to survive. To conclude I would reject the belief that secular views are of more use than religious ones on the basis that I think they can be quite compatible. Shallow ecology and dominion hold very similar values, as do stewardship and deep ecology. I think that to draw a real conclusion science must be used to observe and learn in order to realise the importance of environmentalism. This is possible weather you deem God responsible for earths creation or not. The real matter is preservation in order to survive and in my opinion following the stewardship and deep ecology model whilst still making use of the resources that we have. (PLAN) intro - Government, buisnesses and inderviduals need to pay attention to environmental issues … global warming on the rise etc. in the essay I will outline what the main secular and religious approaches are and then evaluate there usefulness. Secular approaches … utilitarian ethics, Conservationism libertarianism Religious ethics – Christian ethics ( dominion and......

The external business environment of a bank is classified into six main environmental sectors from which scanning can be done. These are: i) Customer sector implies those banks or individuals that buy or consume the services offered by the bank. ii) Competition sector includes the banks, services, and competitive strategies banks that offer similar services, substitute services or value – added services, competitive actions between banks and other financial institutions in the same industry. iii) Technological sector consists of development of new service techniques and methods, innovation in materials and services, and general trends in research and science and technology especially information technologies relevant to the bank. iv) Regulator sector includes government legislation and regulations, policies, and political developments affecting your banking operations. v) Economic sector comprises of economic factors such as stock markets, rate of exchange, rate of inflation, governmental budgets, external trade balance, unemployment and economic growth rate. vi) Socio-cultural sector encompasses social values in the general population, the work ethic, banking habit, crime rate, and rate of women in the work force. © ARUN GULERIA | arun_guleria@ymail.com According to Boyd (1989) “the perceived importance of trends in the various environmental sectors has a major effect on scanning......

Enviromental Health

...accessible to people in all areas. Setting up groceries will make sure that those in the rural areas have more access to food and also ensure that those in the urban areas have access to food that is healthier. The final and the most important solution that can help to curb food deserts are embarking on research and development. The government as well as the private organization should come up with ways through which individuals can produce their foods especially in the rural areas (Nabhan 2013). This will help ensure the availability of healthy food in the rural areas. References Babu, S., Gajanan. & Sanyal, P. (2014).

Enviromental Law

...Enviromental Law There are many differences between corporate law and environmental law; however, the similarities that exist are numerous as well. Although the environmental and business world are constantly changing due to advances in technology, law ethic, and human rights issues, the world of law changes and develops just as quickly to govern the two ever changing types of law. Although changes are made to corporate and environmental law somewhat often, the differences and similarities are always easily seen. To begin with, lawyers interpret the law through actions and words for the protection of an individual, a business, concern, or an idea. They must be highly educated in several important areas: the law, economics, history, human motivation and behavior, and the practicalities of day to day living. The education of lawyers never ends because they must constantly be informed of important information, which may be of use to the client. Their education is also considered never to end because of the fact that the law is always changing and evolving. Environmental law is one of the newest entries in the legal world. Environmental law requires a concern for the nation's resources, knowledge of where the resources are, what they are used for, how and why they may be endangered, damaged, or exploited. Environmental law also requires a concern for those whose job it is to protect them (Vig 120). Environmental lawyers may work alone or in a group. Environmental......
