  • How Does Global Population Influence The World

    The dynamics of the ever-increasing global population influences the world in a multitude of ways, including the environment with respect to the cattle industry. According to Brooks (n.d.), the escalation of the meat industry parallels the growth of the global population, which includes the progressively expanding industrialization of the livestock industry in order to meet these growing demands of the population for beef as a mainstay protein. This industrialized industry constitutes a major…

  • Energy Payback Time Essay

    emission of average CO2 is approximately equivalent of 0.98 kg of CO2/kWh in the electricity generated by coal [143]. The CO2 emission per year can be calculated as [144] (6.2) 6.3.4 Carbon Mitigation and Earned Carbon Credit The mitigation of carbon dioxide (CO2) is used to measure the climate change potential. The net CO2 mitigations are measured per kilowatt hour. Therefore, it is compared with other power production system. The carbon credit is defined as “a key component of national and…

  • Effects Of Acid Rain

    Acid rain is a precipitation which falls from the atmosphere to Earth. It contains a high level of nitrous oxide and sulphur dioxide. When they ge tin contact with water they transform to acid in the atmosphere, and then this acid is carried away by the wind thousaands of miles away from where they were created. The acidity is measured with the potential hydrogen (pH) on a scale from 0-14. The pH scale is a logarythmic measure which means that every change in pH is counted in the amount times…

  • Snowblower Disadvantages

    Leaving snow and ice on your driveway is dangerous, but it can also interfere with the health of your lawn.

  • Climate Change Persuasive Speech Essay

    change in rainfall patterns and ecosystems and more dangerous and frequent extreme weather Another aspect proving climate change’s existence is the increase in ocean acidification. Increased carbon dioxide in the air is causing rapid ocean acidification to occur. Ocean acidification is when carbon dioxide is absorbed by seawater and reduces the seawater’s pH level and since the industrial revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by 30%. Ocean acidification is dangerous…
