Global Warming_ the Overlooked Man Made Disaster

Man-made disasters are the consequence of technological or human hazards. Examples include stampedes, fires, transport accidents, industrial accidents, oil spills and nuclear explosions/radiation. War and deliberate attacks may also be put in this category. As with natural hazards, man-made hazards are events that have not happened, for instance terrorism. Man-made disasters are examples of specific cases where man-made hazards have become reality in an event. Global warming Global warming is one of the most overlooked and ongoing man-made disasters —…

speech on Global Warming

I would like to begin with a statement. Our earth is in trouble. Can anyone of you argue with that? I suppose you could argue. And why is that? Because you have never deeply researched the concepts of either global warming or climate change. So what can we learn from that? The first step of solving a problem is being aware of it. So you would ask “what is global warming?” Global warming is exactly what you hear. The warming…

Audience in ‘a Streetcar Named Desire’

Williams creates dramatic tension in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ through the interactions between the important characters in the play, such as the conflict between Blanche and Stanley, and their contrasting styles of communication. The first instance of this occurs in the second scene. Blanche is bathing, whilst Stanley questions Stella about the loss of Belle Reve, referring to the so-called “Napoleonic code”. As an audience, we sense the tension being created when he says “And I don’t like to be…

Sun’s Atmosphere

Dust and ice around the Sun’s atmosphere were drawn together by gravitational force to form a cold mass which we now call Earth. The heat produced by meteorite activity, compaction and radioactivity caused the earth to melt, thereby reorganizing elements of varying density into three layers called core, mantle and crust. Gases such as hydrogen, nitrogen, water vapor, nitrogen, methane and carbon dioxide escaped from earth’s gravity. These gases formed a layer around the earth called atmosphere. All these gases…

Thomas Midgley Jr.

Born on May 18, 1889, American engineer and chemist Thomas Midgley, Jr. was controversial for two of his discoveries. One, he discovered the Freon while working for General Motors in 1930. He intended it to be a safe non-toxic refrigerant to be used in household appliances, to replace the dangerous refrigerants used before like ammonia and propane. Freon and other CFCs soon replaced the various toxic or explosive substances previously used as refrigerants, and were later used in other applications,…

Air Pollution

Air Pollution is another major problem that is yet to be solved. The air is 99.9% nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor, and inert gases. We as humans depend on the air around us to live, without it we would die. Although we rely on this as an essential source for living, it is still littered and polluted with chemicals. Pollution of the atmosphere and the air around us is air pollution, and this is becoming more “popular” everyday. There are several…

In 2007 Bill McKibben, an author, educator, and environmentalist, wrote the article, “Global Warning: Get Up! Stand Up!” to persuade people…

Oceans and Atmosphere Worksheet

The Oceans 1. What is the composition of seawater? The salinity of seawater ranges from 3.3 to 3.7%. When seawater evaporates it leaves behind sodium chloride, better known as table salt. The other components of seawater are acquired through various methods. One of which is weathering. Chemical weathering of rock releases soluble such as salts of sodium, potassium, and sulfur. 2. What are the three major layers (zones) found in the ocean? Describe each layer briefly. The three layers of…

the Greenhouse Effect

Rationale The “Greenhouse Effect” is a term that refers to a physical property of the Earth’s atmosphere. If the Earth had no atmosphere, its average surface temperature would be very low of about 18℃ rather than the comfortable 15℃ found today. The difference in temperature is due to a suite of gases called greenhouse gases which affect the overall energy balance of the Earth’s system by absorbing infrared radiation. In its existing state, the Earth atmosphere system balances absorption of…
