The last two decades climate change is increasing due to the change of human activity such as cars, planes, factorys and other sources we use that adds greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Because of these human causes the earth is heating up. One effect that climate change has is the effect the change will have upon human water freshwater resources. I believe that climate change will have an effect on human water resources because of the close connections with the hydrological cycle, the...
The motion was in debate in Dundalk Institute of Technology on Monday 8.1.2010. The motion and questions which came up in debate are discussed in this report. Firstly the theory behind climate change and global warming are explained. Also the most common views of the global warming are given. Then is examined the statement that the science is beyond dispute as well as if climate change is an urgent challenges facing the world. Next the role of renewable energy and whether Barak Obama's...
The Ecological Footprint is the measure to determine the extent to which human beings consume nature's resources to the amount that can be regenerated by the earth. The Ecological Footprint (EF) is basically a young accounting tool for renewable resources that is used for determining the issues associated with sustainable consumption. Ecological Footprint represents the human demands for nature's resources and how much bioproductive land and sea area is required to regenerate those resources to...
The issue of urban air quality has been a major concern all over the world. This is because air quality and pollution have been recognised globally as pressing environmental issues (Krivoruchko, 1999).

Out of the entire arable land of China, only 37...
The anthropogenic CO2 emissions and global warming has alarmed worldly to find new and better ways to meet the energy requirement while reducing the GHGs. Pakistan is also severely affected by energy crisis and environmental problems. Pakistan brick kilns are one of the major flue gas emission resources. The purpose of this research is to develop a simulation model to alleviate CO2 emissions and use it for the production of fertilizer that helps the agriculture needs and economy. The widely...
