Pacific Lumber Pacific Lumber started its long history as an environmentally respectful company, however it has not continued that into this decade. The millions of acres of Redwoods that once densely covered the western land have been taken away for financial reward. Before selling, the company way was sustainability, now it is profitability. Because of the efforts of essentially one man, the business has over-harvested the supposed protected Redwood. It is not a simple answer as to why this h

These fields have grown together and have assumed the form of well-established industries in many economies today. The magnitude of these industries have grown so much that they contribute a significant portion to the economic revenues of some counties such as the US, European countries like Switzerland, France, Belgium and Asian countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and M

Globalization Globalization is the increasing integration of world-economies through the free flow of goods and services across national boundaries. It can be seen as the liberalization of global markets. Goods and services can be defined as tangible and intangible, e.g. the agricultural sector supplying ground provisions can be classified as tangible and the tourism and banking sectors can be classed as intangible as they are service industries.

Analytic Review of “Grapes of Wrath” History 258 Nov. 21/01 Grapes of Wrath, the epic novel written by John Steinbeck, captures the travesty and tragedies of the “Great Depression.” Chronicling the travels of a displaced Oklahoma family, the “Joads,” Steinbeck captures many of the historical moods and thinking of the era. Steinbeck weaves a tale purposely driven towards the bourgeois classes of the United States. Steinbeck’s novel is not then just a tale copied and dramatized after the emigrant

We know there will be problems in environmental terms, many serious problems, but it is a matter of economics. There won't be any complete disaster, and what we cannot solve, well, that's the price we have to pay. - Eduardo Albuquerque Barbosa There is a constant war that is being fought in the rainforests of South America. The death toll is one that far surpasses any other war in history. Vietnam and World War II had minimal loss of life compared to this never-ending battle. It is predicted

Population And Its Effect On The Environment Over time, the world's population has grown at an exponential rate. Many have questioned whether or not our planet can sustain such huge numbers of humans without serious depletion of natural resources, and shortages of vital substances, such as water and air. Many feel that we are inevitably going to use up what we have much too quickly and that we will not realize this until it is too late to change our patterns and habits. In the United States, th

Green Architecture Green Architecture Green architecture is an approach to building which has become more popular in the last 25 to 30 years. Also known as sustainable design, green architecture is a method of design that minimizes the impact of building on the environment. Once thought of as unconventional and nonstandard, both regulatory agencies and the public alike are quickly accepting green architecture as a socially responsible and logical means of construction. The beginnings of today's

The Population Problem The Population Problem Two hundred years ago, Thomas Malthus, in An Essay on the Principle of Population, reached the conclusion that the number of people in the world will increase exponentially, while the ability to feed these people will only increase arithmetically (21). Current evidence shows that this theory may not be far from the truth. For example, between 1950 and 1984, the total amount of grain produced more than doubled, much more than the increase in populatio

Utilitarianism
Utilitarianism The concept of sustainable development is an attempt to balance two moral demands placed on the environment. The first demand is for development, including economic development or growth. It arises mainly from the interests of people who live in developing countries. Their present poverty gives them a low quality of life and calls urgently for steps to improve their quality of life. The second demand is for sustainability, for ensuring that we do not risk the future in the sake of

Do we choose the path of economics and progress or do we choose the path of environmentalism and sustainability? Is there a median available for us to take where the greens of eco

Strange weather in King Lear
Strange weather in King Lear
CRITICISM Strange weather in King Lear Steve Mentz* St John’s University, New York, USA This article argues that King Lear can help re-shape the emerging discourse of eco-criticism. The play’s focus on human dis-harmony with the non-human environment resonates with recent developments in ecological science like the ‘‘post-equilibrium shift’’. Shakespeare’s representations of dis-equilibrium in the storm scenes can correct eco-criticism’s reliance on pastoral and Romantic visions of harmony. The
