  2. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 ENTIRE COURSE ENV 322 Week 1 Assignment Model Ecosystems • 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. • Model Ecosystems. Review the virtual lab in Model Ecosystems. Within this laboratory exercise you will categorize various organisms into the correct trophic level for five different ecosystems. Once completed, you will calculate the amount of energy transferred between levels.

  3. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 Week 1 DQ 1 Gaia Hypothesis ENV 322 Week 1 DQ 2 Energy and Food Supplies • 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. • 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.

  4. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 Week 2 DQ 1 Energy Policy ENV 322 Week 2 DQ 2 Fossil Fuel Reserves • Energy Policy. The U.S. Energy Policy is currently being reviewed and six main recommendations are listed, by Botkin and Keller (2011, p. 298). Discuss whether or not each recommendation will lead us to a sustainable society. • Fossil Fuel Reserves. Fossil fuels reserves are rapidly depleting in the United States. The oil industry is lobbying the United States government to grant permission to allow drilling in several untapped areas. Select one of the areas below and discuss whether you believe that government

  5. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 Week 2 Outline for Final Paper ENV 322 Week 3 Assignment Non-renewable Energy Sources • Final Research Paper Outline. Review the Final Research Paper instructions in Week Five of the online course or in the Components of Course Evaluation section of the course guide. Submit an outline of the Final Research Paper. • 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.

  6. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 Week 3 DQ 1 Nuclear Energy ENV 322 Week 3 DQ 2 Nuclear Waste Disposal • 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. • 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.

  7. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 Week 4 Assignment How Big Is Your Footprint ENV 322 Week 4 DQ 1 Alternative Energy Sources and Your Local Ecosystem • How Big is Your Footprint. You will be the energy manager for a large business. You will determine the mix of solar, wind, coal, and gas that will not only provide ample energy, but keep your footprint low. • Alternative Energy Sources and Your Local Ecosystem. During this week’s readings, you have learned about numerous types of alternative energy sources. Each energy source has its advantages and disadvantages. Geography often determines which of these sources

  8. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 Week 4 DQ 2 Unorthodox Energy Sources ENV 322 Week 5 DQ 1 Energy Consumption • Unorthodox Energy Sources. Throughout the text, mainstream energy sources are discussed. One of the factors that set humans apart from any other species is the ability to think critically and develop new and innovative ideas to solve environmental problems. • Energy Consumption. Reducing our energy consumption is vital in our quest to preserve the environment. The conversion from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources will not happen overnight. In the meantime, individuals and businesses

  9. ENV 322 ASH Tutorial Course ENV 322 Week 5 DQ 2 Voluntary vs. Regulatory Involvement ENV 322 Week 5 Final Paper • Voluntary vs. Regulatory Involvement. Affluence leads to overconsumption and increased waste. Governments, industries, and individuals have contributed to the lack of environmental sustainability. Actions must be taken immediately to alter our wasteful ways. • Focus of the Final Paper • Energy is defined as the ability to do work. Over the duration of this course, you will come to differentiate between nonrenewable and renewable energy sources.
