Fossil Fuels

...Nicholas Wiltzius American Intercontinental University SCIE210-1301A-05 Environmental Science Unit 3 Individual Project Instructor Beverly Hamilton Abstract There have been laws passed about the use of different energy which include fossil fuel: oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear energy, solar energy, wind power, water (hydro) power, and bioconversion (biofuel) these laws could allow the possibility of tax incentives. The use of different types of natural energy can pave the way for a greener earth. Although, some may argue that there are pros and cons of such energy. In this paper we will be discussing these pros and cons as well as two provisions of the Energy Policy Act, 2005, including its tax incentives. 1.) The law of conservation of energy states that energy may neither be created nor destroyed (The law of conservation of energy, n.d). 2.) The pros and cons of fossil fuel: oil, natural gas, and coal. The pros are its high efficient, cheaper than non-conventional forms of energy because it is easy to extract and process them and it the potential to power the entire globe. The cons are Fossil fuels are believed to be the largest emitters of greenhouse gases, responsible for global warming and climate change. It is also believed that coal mining creates earthquakes. The biggest con of all is that they are non-renewable. Nuclear Energy creates little amount of CO2 and it can generate a great amount of electrical energy in one single plant. But these......

Landfills an Environment Problems

...The Landfills and Environmental Problems SCIE210 – 1303B – 10 American InterContinental University 09/22/2013 Abstract This paper will talk about what are an open dump and the problems with it. It will also talk about the early landfills and also the problem with. I will include leachate, methane, incomplete decomposition, and settling. It talks the modern landfill and the differences, and the improvement of landfills. It will also discuss the landfill I chosen and the innovation that is implemented, and what will reduce the environmental problems. Introduction: Solid waste is discarded garbage other than fluids. In the United States in 1996, almost 210 million tons o and 4.3 lb. (2kg) per person daily (up from 2.7lb./1.2kg in 1960) was collected and disposed of by municipalities. In the year, municipal trash which included 12.4 million tons of glass and around 80 million tons of paper and paperboard is by far the constituent, and therefore tonnages of food residues, yard trimming, textiles, plastics, and sludge formed of sewage treatment were produced. So the amount of increase has been slow somewhat by recycling and composition programs and improvements in packaging, the amount of solid waste continues to increase annually. What are open dumps and the problems? Open dumps are discarded loads of household trash, bags of yard excess, broken appliances, used tires and with pieces of debris, that is pipes, wood, pieces of shingles, and asbestos that can......

Thermodynamics Scie210

...Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that applies to heat and temperature’s relation to work and energy. There are four well-known laws of thermodynamics. The zeroth law stated that if two systems are within thermal equilibrium with a third systems, then those two systems are also within equilibrium with each other. The first law states that an increase in energy of a closed system equals the difference of heat supplied by the system and work completed by the reaction. The second law states that heat cannot spontaneously flow from cool to warm. The gradient must flow from warmer to cooler regions. The third law states that when a system approaches absolute zero, the entropy also approaches a minimum value. The entropy defines the unavailable energy of the system and signifies the disorder within the unit. The laws of thermodynamics help explain that energy exists within a closed system. There is only so much energy within that system. There are ways to “tap into” the less available energy, but that using that energy leads to disorder. The laws clearly explain that there is only a specified amount of energy in a system and once this energy is used, there is no more. This means that there has to be some amount of energy conservation in order to guarantee that there remains available energy within the system. There are also various types of energy. Even though energy is converted from one form to another, the same amount of energy is present, independent of the......

...Reginald Sanford AIU Online SCIE210 - 1403B – 08 IP3 August 9, 2014 . The first law of thermodynamics would consist of energy not being able to be formed or demolished. Energy is all around and it is made up of everything no matter if it’s the smallest particle or biggest. Being that energy can reorganize itself, it will always change from one form to another. The second law of thermodynamics would consist of the entropy; if it is not in a thermal balance then it will almost always increase. You can say that in the second law would state that if a room is not cleaned it will perpetually become more messy and unsystematic with time. The third law of thermodynamics would be that when a entropy reaches a constant value as it approaches zero. Fossil Fuel pros and cons, the pros of using fossil fuel is that we are able to develop new technology to harness energy from this natural source. Fossil fuel is cheap and there are no other things needed to gather energy from this fuel, it is considered being a reliable source of energy. Think about load-based needs, fossil fuel is more preferred then other sources of energy that are consider being unreliable. The cons of using fossil fuel are that it contributes to the worsening of global warming. Fossil fuel is not an environment-friendly source of energy even dough it is consider a natural source. It is the main contributors in global warming due to it releasing high amounts of carbon. Nuclear energy unlike fossil fuel does......

Environmental Policies

...Unit 5 Individual Project – Environmental Policies Danielle Wynma AIU SCIE210 – Environmental Science Lindsey Nieratka December 14, 2014 Abstract This paper will discuss one environmental law. Major provisions will be summarized as well as the economic impact of the law. Global warming will also be discussed as well as whether the U.S. should adopt additional policies to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Unit 5 Individual Project – Environmental Policies Introduction This paper will discuss the Clean Water Act. This law was passed initially in 1948 and was known as the Federal Water Pollution Control Act. It was reorganized and expanded upon in 1972 when it became known as the Clean Water Act (EPA, 2014). This paper will summarize the major provisions of this law as well as the economic impact. It will also describe what, if anything, the law has improved. Finally, global warming will be discussed and whether additional policies should be adopted to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Provisions and economic impact of the law The Clean Water Act was the first major law to address water pollution. One of the major provisions of this act are that it prohibits the discharge of any pollutant except those in compliance with the Act. The Act imposes limitations on existing sources and how the pollutant is discharged (whether the pollutant goes directly into an open body of water or to publicly owned treatment plant). This law requires the EPA to maintain......

...Demographic Transition Theresa M. Valenzuela SCIE210-1201A-04 Environmental Science American InterContinental University Online Abstract This paper will include a definition of what demographic transition is. The four phases of demographic transition, including if the population is stable, growing, or declining in each phases will also be described. The factors that have lead to the declining of birth rates and death rates will be explained. Described will be three living condition or environmental impacts that have been reached in a developed country that is in phase four. Two programs will be suggested that would assist a developing country to reach phase four. Demographic Transition Demographic transition is when birth rates and death rates go down from being fairly high to fairly low levels (Glossary, EconGuru, 2012). This most likely happens due to women who would normally bear children step out into the working outside the home world. This then makes the population grow very slowly (Wright, pg 120 2008). The four phases of demographic transition are as follows: Phase 1: primitive stability, Phase 2: epidemiologic transition, Phase 3: fertility transition, and Phase 4: modern stability. The first phase which is primitive stability is defined by the high birth and the high death rates. During this phase the population does not grow very fast at all and it is fluctuating ("Barcelona field studies," 2011). Birth rates can be very high due to a number of......

Environmental Science

...SCIE210 – Unit 5 Individual Project Sandra Allen American Intercontinental University May 27, 2012 From the beginning of time, there has always been wildlife. The animals and plants of our wildlife contribute to what makes this life so interesting. If all wildlife were to go extinct, then we would not have a way to replenish the oxygen to survive off of. All animals and plants are a part of our lifecycle and should be respected as such. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) was put in place to protect threatened and endangered animals and plants. There are two agencies that equip this program, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This act was dated official in 1973. There is a specific list of species that are endangered. This law requires that these agencies ensure that all species on that list are to never be compromised in any way such as: importing, exporting, hunting, etc. In the 1900s, when it was realized that bison and a bird in North America called the Passenger Pigeon were going missing, it was determined that something had to be done to protect the wildlife. As this issue was looked upon, it was found that millinery and pesticides were a major cause of animal and plant extinction. Millinery is the designing and manufacturing of hats. When people realized that they could profit from making a product with animal skins and furs, millinery became a problem for wildlife. Those...
