Nuclear Weapons A major problem concerning the world today is the disposal of nuclear weapons. With the Cold War, we have seen a massive build up of nuclear weapons, and no, that we are no longer in a state of global warfare, what is to be done with them? As a result of the build-up in nuclear weapons during the cold war the world is now facing major environmental problems trying to deactivate them, and in addition major debate are occurring on the policies of disarmament and deterrence as solut

Air Pollution
Air Pollution Then the sky turned red, toxins over head, everybodies dead, everybodies dead. (GutterMouth; Nitro Records; 1995) In 1948, the industrial town of Donora, Pennsylvania suffered 28 deaths because of the thick smog. Air pollution is an ecological problem having to do with toxins in the air. There are a few things the human race has done to try to prevent air pollution from taking such a serious toll. Two of these are the Clean Air Acts and the increased use of solar power over coal po

Solar Energy An Alternative Energy
Solar Energy: An Alternative Energy Imagine a perfect source of energy. One with which no pollution what-so-ever is associated with. No poisonous gasses or destruction of rain forests. This abundant source of energy comes from the sun. Solar energy is the visible energy produced in the sun as a result of a constant nuclear fusion reaction that is taking place. The amount of energy at the solar constant, which is at outer edge of the earth's atmosphere, is two calories per minute per cm squared.
Nuclear Energy and the Environment
Nuclear Energy and the Environment
Nuclear Energy and the Environment In our society, nuclear energy has become one of the most criticized forms of energy by the environmentalists. Thus, a look at nuclear energy and the environment and its impact on economic growth. Lewis Munford, an analyst, once wrote, Too much energy is as fatal as too little, hence the regulation of energy input and output not its unlimited expansion, is in fact one of the main laws of life. This is true when dealing with nuclear power. Because our societie
Urban Heat Islands
Urban Heat Islands
Urban Heat Islands For more than 100 years, it has been known that two adjacent cities are generally warmer than the surrounding areas. This region of city warmth, known as an urban heat island, can influence the concentration of air pollution. The urban heat island is formed when industrial and urban areas are developed and heat becomes more abundant. In rural areas, a large part of the incoming solar energy is used to evaporate water from vegetation and soil. In cities, where less vegetation a

The Night Sky Long ago, people looked into the night sky and wondered what they were looking at? How far away are those twinkles in the sky? Could they all be stars, or maybe, could they be something else? What makes certain lights brighter than others, and how does distance affect their intensity? These questions and other interesting facts will be reviewed in the following pages. One of the most common curiosities regarding the night sky is distance, which can be very hard to determine. Becau

Our Solar system, the sun and its planet’s has not always been there. It is nearly five billion years ago, and there is no solar system, no planets, moons, no sun. Instead there is a big cloud of dust and gas called a nebula. This cloud has been slowly twisting for more than 10 billion years, held together by it’s own gravity. Then a star explodes......WOW!! its a super nova.... The blast pushes the gases of our nebula together. That strengthens the gravitational pull of those gases even more a

In the eight fold path of yoga meditation is the eighth step (Smith, 11). Once here a Yogi must become more aware and more sensitive to what is within themselves (“Meditation”). “A Yogi must first lose themselves here to find peace with themselves” (Smith, 11). The armor that a person has built around themselves throughout their lives must be lost and they have to see themselves clearly (Smith, 19). Meditation begins with concentration (“Meditation”). In concentration meditation a Yogi must foc

SOLAR ENERGY -- THE ENERGY OF THE FUTURE? About 47 per cent of the energy that the sun releases to the earth actually reaches the ground. About a third is reflected directly back into space by the atmosphere. The time in which solar energy is available, is also the time we least need it least - daytime. Because the sun's energy cannot be stored for use another time, we need to convert the suns energy into an energy that can be stored. One possible method of storing solar energy is by heating wat

The Roles of Predator Avoidance and Light in the Diel Vertical Migration of Zooplankton Almost all zooplankton species undergo diel vertical migration (DVM) at some time in their life cycle. The most commonly observed type of DVM is a nocturnal pattern which consists of a single daily ascent with minimum depth reached between sunset and sunrise and maximum depth attained during the day (Forward and Hettler 1992). Migrating animals spend the day in deep waters and stay near the surface at night.

The Sun A Solar Flare is a rapid release of energy from a localized region on the Sun in the form of electromagnetic radiation, energetic particles, and mass motions. The size of a solar flare varies. One flare can be the size of a sunspot or the size of a whole sunspot group. It usually has a temperature similar to that of the sun's photosphere. The amount of time it takes for a flare to last varies directly with its size. The smaller flares last for approximately ten minutes. Larger flares can

INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION: Where does energy come from? Energy is usually supplied in the form of gas, oil-based fuels, coal, or electricity. In Britain, most of the electricity comes from power stations using other fuels as a source of energy. Heat from burning fuel is used to change water into steam and the steam turns the turbines which drive the generators. How long can the fuel last? There won't be much oil or natural gas left at the end of this century if consumption continues at the present rate. Coa

From far off in space, you can see our home surrounded by a blue ribbon with a faint tint. The ribbon is almost transparent and is used as a filter to protect all living organisms from the sun’s hazardous radiation. It lets just the right amount of light through to supply everything with energy. We know this ribbon, or filter, as the ozone layer. The ozone layer is needed to support life on Earth. In the past thirty, to forty years, it has become evident that something is eating away at the ozo

Today, these questions still remain unanswered, although extensive research has been conducted by scientists across the globe for many years now. There is an immense amount of existing evidence that suggests to us that life exists beyond Earth’s boundaries, into the gigantic universe surrounding Earth itself. In
