The topics of: Energy, agriculture, pollution and climate change, biodiversity, and random miscellaneous environmental incongruities bring up some of the most crucial concerns of today's environmentalissues. There is so much going on in today's world revolving around environmental concerns, and the information in newspapers serve as a great informational tool to inform the economy of what is going on around them and possibly what they can do to help.
The environmentalissues associated with the development and use of oil, gas, nuclear power, electricity, and wind/solar power fall under the category of "Energy." Energy is one of the most important issues there are, asVIEW DOCUMENT

When we drill for oil, we are able to feed the needs of our oil based economy, which can be looked at as a good thing, as we are promoting a certain kind of economic growth. Despite the good that can come from drilling, however, I tend to find that the problems we are creating are far greater than the good we can benefit from. When we drill oil, we exploit the land, essentially making it beneficial for only one agenda; the agenda of the oil companies. While destroying the land beyondVIEW DOCUMENT

Did you ever think that something meant to aid in the advance of humans could be potentially fatal at the same time? What about a disease that was considered “dead';, resurfacing and killing unsuspecting people? What about the fact that we as human beings are ruining the only place for us to live, the earth? These questions sound outrageous, right? Wrong, these issues are considered environmental problems that we will soon face. These issues are very serious and many people have no idea that they even exist. To have problems and not even know about them is definitely grounds for destruction.

Pluralism is an approach that teaches that while individuals can be diverse they can still have respect for each other. Pluralists generally keep an open mind to other's ideas. They believe there are other possible answers, to environmentalissues, than just their own (Bratton, 1995).

However, near the end of the twentieth century and currently in the twenty first century people have come to the realization that maybe we should pay more attention to our environment around us. The awareness of the importance of the well being of the environment brings the question “Are we(humans) taking current environmentalissues too lightly?”. Unfortunately the answer to that question is a resounding yes. Numerous environmental studies have shown that unless we take serious action to restore the health of our environment, we will be at serious risk. The risksVIEW DOCUMENT

Hydro-electric power also was not put into action due to the lack of fast flowing rivers, but small generators that supply only a few number of houses have been set up.England does not suffer from any huge environmental problems such as tornado's or earthquakes, the most serious threat is only in the south west whereVIEW DOCUMENT

How does Science fiction reflect the current political, social, technological and economical issues of the world?
Science fiction is a film genre that most people consider as mere escapist fantasy but very often the opposite is the truth. Science fiction is quite complex. It uses a lot of codes and conventions that are metaphors for current events of those times. In many cases it mirrors political, social, technological or even environmentalissues.Science fiction started very early on in the end of the nineteenth century with the Lumiere brothers and Zecca.

The tragedy is that people don’t look at the bigger picture; the over use of commons for our own personal benefit leads to the destruction or extinction of these commons.

China witnesses rapid economic growth after the economic reform in 1978. This economic development brings people great wealth and also a huge cost on the environment.

In addition, due to China’s biggest population on earth, the impact of these pollutions goes beyond border and becomes a global issue too.

What motivated the DND to do so was that there was an outrageous amount of environmentalissues emerging in 1983 within Canada.

Over time, the department realized that one of their main concerns was sites contaminated by prior military practices, such as disposal ofVIEW DOCUMENT

However, a narrow focus on win-wins will lead to a depletion of "easy gains". As a result, implementing environmental actions will generate costs without financial benefits in the long term (Walley & Whitehead, 1994). Certain conditions must be met for a company to pursue environmental initiatives for financial gain. Using environmental initiatives to mitigate risk is an excellent way of saving on environment-related costs, if a company is successful in integrating sustainability risk into general risk managementVIEW DOCUMENT

Globally environmental law became a hot topic during the late 1960’s to the early 1970’s following numerous environmental disasters such as the Torrey Canyon disaster of 1967 which brought 20 million Americans together in support of Earth Day on the 22nd of April 1970 at Woodstock (Kidd, 1997). During this period many other environmentalissues brought people together is a stance to improve various environmental situations (NREP). The announcement of the USA’s National Environmental Policy Act in the same year initiated a shift from ad hoc laws to improved, planned and a continuously implemented approach to environmental legislation (Kidd, 1997).
