As the world's energy crisis progresses, renewable energy sources like tidal power are being explored. Tides, the rise and fall of sea levels, are created by changes in the gravitational forces of the sun and moon as well as the earth's rotation. Tidal Energy is generated by converting gravitational potential energy of high tides into hydroelectricity. Most ocean environments experience two high tides and two low tides [] everyday. There are three main ways to harness tidal energy,...
In the polar environment, there are beautiful polar animal in an section of the country in a polar environment, the polar animals you can see are like penguin, huskies, polar bears caribou musk ox, wolf, wolverine, arctic fox, ermine, lemming, arctic hare, arctic ground squirrel, birds, whales, harp seal, walrus, etc… In the icy land there are amazing large ice bergs surrounding the area. Did you know that you can see only one-fifth of the ice bergs above sea water? There are lots of...
The vulnerability to climate change is considered to be high in developing countries due to social, economic and environmental conditions that amplify susceptibility to negative impacts and contribute to low capacity to cope with and adapt to climate hazards. In addition, projected impacts of climate change generally are more adverse for low latitudes, where most developing countries are located, than for higher latitudes. The developing countries face many challenges - poverty, a high disease...
This assignment is an energy case study. The aim of the assignment is to learn, combine and manipulate the new and existing technologies and also the ethical issues behind the adoption of nuclear power in UK for the next thirty years. People should have new organizational behaviours to develop an organizational framework which meets the current ethical and environmental requirements, while remain innovative. I am acting as an independent energy consultant who is advising the UK Government. I am...
The inner core of the Earth is where geothermal energy can be derived. Favorable sites for geothermal energy extraction are rare. The location it occurs is at pushed up magma near the earth's surface through faults and cracks in the crust. The water that leaks in is heated by the resulting "hot spots" which is 2 to 3 km from the surface. Subsequently, hot water and the steam can be channeled directly to warm homes or to turn turbines. Lastly, cooler water runs back down while the hot...
The demand for good-quality drinking water is rapidly increasing world-wide. Increasing population, with the desire to improve standards of living, contribute to the increased demand. Increasing of potable water demands throughout the world has stressed traditional, high quality sources of potable water. Therefore, numerous potable water suppliers have restored to utilizing alternative water resources of lesser quality, such as ground waters, highly turbid and organic surface waters, and...
The use of biomass to generate electricity in thermal power plants has been practiced in many parts of the world for over 100 years. The use of high-pressure boilers to raise steam and to drive steam turbines is a well-proven and reliable technology. Over the years, these technologies have undergone many improvements. Today, the equipment to convert bio fuels into electricity is available at competitive prices. This equipment is very efficient and the pollutants emitted from them are minimal....
To meet the requirements of my aim, I am going to examine the emergency management procedures that are currently in place and evaluate whether these techniques of prevention and preparedness are effective, in correspondence to the ethics and resources of the Philippines. Understanding the methodology of ethical decision making, is important in enhancing the ability to evaluate the ethical decisions that arise in coincidence with disaster prevention, this is extremely important in high populated...
The emergence of the concept of supermarkets from USA during 1930s has now taken the widespread popularity throughout the world. This increasing trend seems remarkable with the speed they have transformed the relationship of consumers to everyday products they buy and the concern about its production, packaging and marketing. Supermarkets have become essential aspect to promote fast food lifestyle with easy access to a variety of food at reasonable price, but on the contrary, they have created...
Since the 1960s, there has been a growing interest in the environment, or more specifically in the damage being done, (Welford, 1998) Amid the eighteenth and nineteenth century the Industrial revolution spanning no less than 100 years could be considered the period in which the inventiveness and innovation of human beings, and the resultant mechanization processes began to have negative impacts upon the environment, (Whitelaw 1997) although changes to conditions of the atmosphere can be traced...
