-Use an energy calculator to determine how much energy your household consumes. Discuss how you could lessen the amount of energy that is consumed. What types of energy are used? Which of the sources are from renewable energy sources?
-What is the impact of using nonrenewable energy?
-Explore your community for evidence of renewable energy sources (wind power, solar power, geothermal, or nuclear). Take pictures of how it is implemented. What are these renewable energy sources doing for your community? (The community will be Elgin, IL 60124 USA)
-Discuss what sources are available and how they could be implemented.
This is an opportunity for the students to examine and apply the information they have learnt
in the class. The research paper is based on the proposal you have submitted at the beginning
of the term. The research paper should be between 7 to 8 pages. At least 10 scholarly
references are expected, at least 6 of them peer reviewed
Please choose ONE topic from the following list:
1. Climate change: Climate has been an ever-changing natural system since the history of
planet. Discuss why the current changes in Earth’s climate is different from the past
changes? Examine the different causes and solutions to the current climate change.
2. Anthropocene versus Holocene: What are the controversies in naming the present
Holocene as Anthropocene epoch? What are the major TWO environmental changes
witnessed in the so-called Anthropocene epoch? What are the solutions to these dramatic
changes for the sustainability of future generations?
3. Evidence for environmental changes: How are the geological timescale defined? What
kind of evidence do scientists rely upon for piecing together the information about Earth’s
history? Why is it important to learn and understand about Earth’s history?
This Assignment will not be accepted late. This is a firm deadline.

Write a short essay in .docx or .pdf format (1-2 pages, approx. 500 words (+/- 50 words)) on a topic or concept that was previously unknown to you or on an opinion about which you changed your views this semester (in this course). Explain in your own words what your initial understanding and or opinion was and the evidence or experience that informed your new understanding. This is about you so please draw extensively from your own experience but also use the course material we looked at this semester and be sure to explain it thoroughly and cite it in APA. Please also discuss any questions you still have related to this topic and ways in which you might further explore it and inform yourself.
Please do not just summarise the course content from one of the Learning Units. The purpose of this assignment is similar to that of a reflective journal in which you reflect on your own learning and personal growth. For example, as an undergrad a friend took a full-year course on climate change. If she were given this assignment in that course, she might write about how previous to the course, she had been afraid of studying physics, and would not have signed up for the course if she had known that climate science relies heavily on physics. Because of the way that the material was presented, she didn’t realize that she was learning physics. By the end of the course, she had a strong grasp of fluid dynamics from studying the way that air masses behave in the atmosphere. She has now applied this knowledge and skill in other areas. For example, she used her understanding of atmospheric movements to model lake water movements when completing her MSc.
Be Concise: If you go over 550 words, the penalty will be 1 mark out of 10 per 50 words over. (e.g., 550 words = no penalty, 551-600 words = 1 mark penalty; 601-650 words = 2 mark penalty; and so on. The word limit does not include the reference list or title.)”
I tried to attach a zip file here but it was too large to upload here so I uploaded it to my Google Drive above. It includes lecture notes in the Learning Modules folder and some of my assignments and instructions if you want to use those as references for the reflection.
If you need to use sources, use as many as needed, the professor did not mention a limit.
If there’s anything that needs further clarification, let me know and I’ll get back as soon as I can. Thanks and best regards!
Significant fractions of rivers and streams have been severely polluted by heavy metals and persistent organic compounds. Let’s assume that you are in charge of a program to restore polluted rivers and streams, and you are supposed to develop a research plan to assess current status sediment quality in Buffalo Bayou.
First, Your target pollutant is Mercury. Prepare a research plan relevant to the target pollutants you picked. Your research plan must include the following.
Abstract (250-300 words)
Background (minimum 600 words)
Overarching goals and specific objectives
Rationales: justify why your approach is attractive, effective, and feasible (minimum 300 words)
Methods including Sample collection (e.g., sample type, sampling sites, sampling time, sample size), Sample analysis, QA/QC, and statistical analysis (minimum 400 words).
I have principle 6 of Environmental justice principles.
6) Environmental Justice demands the cessation of the
production of all toxins, hazardous wastes, and radioactive
materials, and that all past and current producers be held
strictly accountable to the people for detoxification and
the containment at the point of production.
