Renewable Energy
<
We built modern society on the backs of fossil
<
fuels, and now it’s coming back to haunt us
<
through climate change. One of the biggest ways
<
we can cope with this is by developing renewable
<
energy technologies, such as solar, wind, and
<
hydro energy. But although these new resources
<
may be carbon-neutral, that doesn’t mean they
<
don’t come at a cost.
<
For example, wind energy, which is often touted as
<
the ultimate green energy source, has a nasty

tendency to whack birds out of the air, including

endangered species. Hydro power blocks

migratory fish like salmon from being able to

reproduce, causing fisheries to suffer. Even solar

power can block sunlight from reaching plants.

ENVR 1401 Sea-Ice/Climate Change Lab Report
Jim Dobberstine
This lab report should explain the experiment investigating the effect of ice on water temperature, modeling sea ice in the face of climate change.
The report must be typed, and all figures, charts, graphs etc. used must be computer generated.
The report will be due no later than the date noted in your syllabus. Please attach the final report to a Blackboard message or email as a Microsoft Word document.
Your Lab Report must include the following:
TITLE of the lab experiment, your name, and the name(s) of any co-author(s) to your report.
ABSTRACT: The purpose of an abstract is to allow the reader to judge whether it would serve his or her purposes to read the entire report. A good abstract is a concise (100 to 200 words) summary of the purpose of the report, the data presented, and the author’s major conclusions. The abstract is written last, so that you have all of the information you need to write a short summary (which is basically an abstract).
INTRODUCTION: This section will provide a brief overview of the problem, or question you are researching. It includes the relevant background and citations to the literature. You must cite at least two peer-reviewed journal articles in your report.
Your introduction should include the following to familiarize the reader with all the relevant information pertaining to your study:
a. A short synopsis of climate, climate change, and its context in the arctic environment
b. A brief descriiption of why this issue is of importance to global climate cycles
c. Your research question and hypothesis (Be sure to include your independent and dependent variables)
MATERIALS and METHODS: This section describes the procedure and equipment used to conduct your experiment. This section should be very accurate and detailed.
RESULTS: This section includes the data collected. The data should be presented in three ways: table, graph, and a brief descriiption of the results in paragraph form.
a. The table(s) should be very simple and easy for the reader to understand- with columns and rows properly labeled and titles for each table (i.e., Table 1: Temperature). The title for each table should be immediately above the table.
b. Graphs should be computer-generated. Be sure to include titles of each graph and properly labeled x- and y- axes. The title for graphs should be immediately below the graph or figure (i.e., Figure 1: Temperature).
DISCUSSION: This section discusses the results and draws conclusions based on these results. In this section, you should state whether the data collected supports or rejects your hypotheses and what that means in relation to the overview and background information you presented in the introduction (you may include citations here as well). Any procedures or processes that may have affected the results (i.e., equipment malfunctions, procedural errors, etc.) should also be explained in this section. Suggestions for the improvement of techniques or experimental design may also be included here. In writing this section, you should explain the logic that allows you to accept or reject your original hypotheses, supported with references where appropriate. You should also be able to suggest future experiments that might clarify areas of doubt in your results.
LITERATURE CITED: Cite any sources used in your lab report. You must cite at least two peer-reviewed journal articles in your report. All sources must be cited in the body of your report and listed in this section according to the APA format.
For articles:
Fox, J.W. 1988. Nest-building behavior of the catbird, Dumetella carolinensis. Journal of Ecology 47: 113-17.
For Books:
Bird, W.Z. 1990. Ecological aspects of fox reproduction. Berlin: Guttenberg Press.
For chapters in books:
Smith, C.J. 1989. Basal cell carcinomas. In Histological aspects of cancer, ed. C.D. Wilfred, pp. 278-91. Boston: Medical Press.
When citing references in the text, refer to articles by the author’s name and the date the paper was drafted. For example:
1. Fox in 1988 investigated the hormones on the nest-building behavior of catbirds.
2. Hormones are known to influence the nest-building behavior of catbirds (Fox, 1988).
When citing papers that have two authors, both names must be listed.
When three or more authors are involved, the Latin et al. (et alia) meaning “and others” may be used.
For example:
A paper by Smith, Lynch, Merrill, and Beam drafted in 1989 would be cited in the text as:
Smith et al. (1989) have shown that…

Your answer should include all of the spheres* (i.e. subsystems) that we’ve discussed, as well as key feedbacks between the subsystems, forcings, and the different time scales and processes that are important to forming climate couplings. This question is intended to get you thinking about how it all fits together. You may also find going back to the first chapter of the textbook helpful. [30 points]
Answers will vary, so this question will be graded on whether or not you addressed all of the prompt requirements and provided accurate information with examples. Your answer length should be half a page of text. You may provide figures as supplemental material to your answer, but the length will be assessed on the length of your text.

Critically discuss whether taxes and subsidies can completely solve the issue of exposure to excessive levels of air pollution in all settings. Use economic theory and real-life examples to support your answer.
I would like to use Pigovian tax and Coase theorem, also I have already find three examples. 1. Denmark was one of the first countries to impose explicit CO2 taxes on both household and business energy consumption in 1992/1993.(tax)
2. Brazilian Emergency Thermal Power Plan(subsidy)
3. US Sulfur Allowance System(coase theorem)(the 1990 amended Clean Air Act was signed into law
by George Bush the elder. The Act, called for a reduction of emissions
to 10 million tons annually through the use of tradeable permits.)
