Evironmentalism Evironmentalism: The Next Step Broad Social Change Through Personal Commitment Introduction In the last thirty years, America has witnessed an environmental revolution. New laws like the 1963 Clean Air Act and the 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act forged new ground in political environmentalism. Social phenomena like Earth Day, organized by Dennis Hayes in 1970, and the beginning of large-scale recycling, marked by Oregon's 1972 Bottle Bill, have help change the way Americans think about the environment. As we approach the third millennium, however, we must reconsider our place on the planet and reflect on our efforts and progress towards a sustainable society. As global warming b ...

An excellent resource on maximizing your home's insulation is Home Insulation by Harry Yost. Your local library should have, if not this book, several books on insulation that will at least get you started. Beyond updating your furnace and insulating your home, consider your personal use of heat in the home. The average American household's temperature during the winter is slowly rising because of increasingly sedentary lifestyles and lighter dress. The healthier we eat and the more exercise we get, the more internal heat our bod ...

Cadmium Cadmium is present in certain components, including chip resistors, infrared detectors, semiconductors, older CRTs and is sometimes present in plastics as a stabilizer. Cadmium represents approximately 0.009% of a PC by weight 16. Based on the total number of disposed PC's in Canada in 2000, this translates to 2.0 tons of cadmium. Based on the prediction that 47,821 tones of PCs and monitors will be disposed in 2005 and assuming that the average composition of this equipment will not change significantly by that year, ...

- Material Selection For Automotive Spaceframes - 1,167 words
Material Selection For Automotive Spaceframes Material Selection for Automotive Spaceframes Aluminum usage in automobiles and light trucks has been climbing steadily. Even more important, auto manufacturers are beginning to see aluminum the way aircraft manufacturers do - as the basic structural material for their vehicles. Increasingly, in the case of carmakers, that thinking begins with an aluminum body structure such as the spaceframe. It's a new and potentially powerful trend. As recently as 1990, there were no aluminum-structured passenger cars in production anywhere in the world. The closest thing was the HMMV (Hummer), at that time strictly a military vehicle. As of 1997, there were s ...

" (Becklake 11). This leachate will seep into the ground and will at some point in time pollute the underground water table that is sometimes the source of our drinking waters.

- Recycling - 498 words
Recycling Recycling is an ancient practice with many modern applications. It refers to the recovery and reuse of materials from spent products. In recent years recycling has become a major part of environmental policy, mainly because of the increased costs of solid- and hazardous-waste disposal, the scarcity of natural resources, and the growing concern over polluted land, water, and air. There are two types of recycling operations: internal and external. Internal recycling is the reuse in a manufacturing process of materials that are a waste product of that process. Internal recycling is common in the metals industry. External recycling is the reclaiming of materials from a product that has ...

Service Characteristics 1. Service Mechanism or Process: For each category of customer it is necessary to describe the service process.

- The First Flush Toilet - 400 words
The First Flush Toilet The first flush toilet was invented by Tomas Crapper in 1884. It was first presented in a large Health Exhibition in London. The items that were used in the original "flush-test" were four tests that consisted of 3 wads of paper, a sponge, 4 greased paper sheets and 10 apples. As these items were tossed in one after the other, the crowd was surprised by this great break- through in toilet efficiency. No, Mr. Crapper did not invent the toilet, he was the first to make a practical and efficient system to rid someone of waste. There were many prior toilet designs and types used. Some of these consisted of the compost toilet (which consisted of using heat to evaporate sewa ...
