  • Business - General Business

  • Gaia Hypothesis. In Chapter 3, the Gaia hypothesis is introduced. It addresses two hypotheses; (1) life, since its inception, has greatly affected the planetary environment and (2) life has altered Earth’s environment in ways that have allowed life to persist. Do you agree with these two hypotheses? Why or why not?

  • Energy and Food Supplies. The underlying theme of this course is energy. As a whole, the global society needs to find ways to reduce our energy consumption. The food pyramid is a prime example of energy transfer within individual ecosystems and the biosphere. As you increase the trophic levels, a greater amount of energy is lost.

ENV 322 Week 3 Assignment Non-renewable Energy Sources

For more course tutorials visit

www.uophelp.com

  • Non-renewable Energy Sources. Energy generation is an ongoing topic in the United States and worldwide. Historically, the nation’s main energy source is fossil fuels. However, nuclear power has also contributed throughout history. These energy sources are considered non-renewable resources because their inputs are limited in both quantity and availability. Select either fossil fuel energy or nuclear power as the main topic for this paper. Discuss the impact that the selected source has had on the environment.

  • Nuclear Energy. Based on your readings, do you believe that the Unites States should increase the use of nuclear energy, a non-renewable resource, as a replacement for fossil fuels? Defend your answer by discussing the pros and cons of nuclear energy. When answering, be sure to address the following (a) mining of uranium, (b) safety, (c) environmental impacts, and (d) waste disposal

ENV 322 Week 3 DQ 2 Nuclear Waste Disposal

For more course tutorials visit

www.uophelp.com

  • Nuclear Waste Disposal. One of the most controversial issues when discussing the possibility of nuclear power as an energy source is the disposal of the spent fuel rods. Yucca Mountain, the main proposed repository, has been studied for consideration for over ten years. What geological features of Yucca Mountain made it a potential waste site? What were the drawbacks of this location? Since President Obama took office, he has halted funding for the development of Yucca Mountain. What impact will this have on utilizing nuclear waste since an alternate waste site has not been selected? Is it a good idea to have all of the nation’s waste in one location or should it be spread out over several locations?
