Mark Natural Resource Issues Washington

Mark asks…

Can somebody correct this essay for me? thank you so much!?

We all know that people in the prehistorical period had to fighted not only with other person but also with natural resoures for existence. They had to hunt quarrys and gather fruits, even cut down trees to build houses. However, as technology improved, many people are aware of human activities have great influence on our living earth and raise a big argumentation on this issue. Some people claim that human activities are damage our living earth, the others advocate that human activity makes the earth a better place to live. In my opinion, I consider that human activities spoil our living earth seriously and we need to do something to improve this situation.
Firsty , our living earth is being harmed by human activity because people overuse natural resource in the present time. As everybody knows, the population on our earth nowadays has increase rapidly so that more people than before have to consume more food preparation and daily goods. To detailed the above description, natural resources will become less and less when population continue growing. The truth is in two hundred and five, the average atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration increased 0.6 percent over the high in two hundred and four, representing the largest annual increase ever recorded, according to the Washington-based Worldwatch Institute. In addition, an estimated twenty percent of the world’s coral reefs had been destroyed, as with twenty percent of mangrove forests. It takes 20 trees to keep one baby in disposable diapers for two years. The average life span of a cell phone is only 14 months. Every day, our planet receives enough solar energy to heat every home in the world for one year – free!
“Heal the world,” urges multi-awarded singer Michael Jackson. “Make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race.” But how ? There are many things people can do to help clean up this world we are living such as saving energy , water , paper , reuse funiture before throw them away and avoide most plastic , etc. Many tasks – like reading, writing, studying, and sewing – can be done quite comfortable by the light of a window. And using daylight offers twin benefits: It’s free and doesn’t pollute. Don’t leave the water running. A full gallon of water can run out of your kitchen faucet in less than sixty seconds! Turn off the water when brushing teeth. That will save one to two gallons of water each time your brush. . Don’t use disposable razors and blades. Since the razors are made of plastic, not only do they consume high quantities of energy and toxic chemicals during their manufacture, they don’t degrade in landfill. Use glass dishes and cups and metal silverware instead of plastic. In fact, avoid buying anything that’s plastic unless it’s extremely durable, you can use it many times over, and you have no other option. Recycle used ribbons, bows, and decorative wrappings. If you take care when people’s unwrapping their presents, they can reuse the wraps at least one time. They can store used paper and accessories in a convenient place so that they can use them for the next holiday occasion. If people can’t recycle something, they should reuse it. Buy products that will last. With plastic and glass bottles, don’t throw them away. Use them to hold leftovers in the kitchen, to hold paper clips in the office… And man can buy biodegradable products, avoid most plastics, if possible by choosing paper instead of plastic.
Thus, the Earth is hurt. Certainly, the Earth is good place to live for human. However, it is only for human. We should think about other creatures and keep the Earth healthy. We should make the Earth a better place to live for every creatures and the Earth itself. “There are ways to get there” , croons Michael Jackson. “ If you care enough for the living , make a little space , make a better place” .

4-sorry, it needs to be completely re-written. Triple space it, hand it in as a rough draft, and maybe your teacher will have one of the other students sit down with you. You have too much verbiage, you need to make more paragraphs, and an outline would certainly not hurt
i realize you are probably not using english as your primary language, but ask your tutor for help in organizing

George Natural Resource   Gold Reserves By Country

George asks…

New Labour were a great party surely?

OK they made a few cock ups filled the place with unskilled immigrants we had no jobs for. Caused a major crisis by not regulating banks.Got caught fiddling the tax payer at every opportunity.Turned Britain into a Police state with thousands of new laws.Took the country war.Told us no more boom and bust.
Sold the countries gold reserves at rock bottom price etc etc etc.
So lets all say for they are jolly good fellows?

Chip answers:

All minor issues when you consider their greatest disgrace. The smoking ban.

How many individual landlords have lost their livelihoods and how many communities have lost their hub thanks to that one?

If you look at the chronology of events under their “government” this was the spark that started the ruin.

Mandy Natural Resource   Gold Reserves By Country

Mandy asks…

What if U.S. government stole reserve gold?

Other countries have gold stored in the New York Fed.. What if the government (not the fed) stole it? Sources in the alternative media say that is plan b if the dollar doesn’t rebound. Then the treasury would kill the reserve note and issue a treasury note backed by gold. So, what if?
??????????????
@SCOTT M
The story says there’s no intention of paying the debt.

Chip answers:

Altogether, the US and foreign holdings of gold at the NY Fed are about 300 million ounces. Multiply that by 1300 an ounce and you get 390 billion dollars. The U.S. Deficit was 1.3 trillion so at current rates the U.S. Government could burn through all this gold in about 3-4 months. Stealing the gold would do nothing but cause foreigners to quit buying US debt obligations. Forget the gold and worry about the trillions the US is in debt and the trillions the US Federal Reserve is pumping into the economy to stoke inflation.

Below is from Wiki.

The United States Bullion Depository, commonly called Fort Knox, is a fortified vault building located adjacent to Fort Knox, Kentucky, which is used to store a large portion of United States official gold reserves and, occasionally, other precious items belonging or entrusted to the federal government.

The United States Bullion Depository holds about 4,603 tons (4,176 metric tonnes) of gold bullion (147.4 million troy ounces[1]). It is second in the United States only to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s underground vault in Manhattan, which holds about 5,000 metric tonnes of gold in trust for many foreign nations, central banks and official international organizations.

Sandra Your Questions About Natural Resources Canada

Sandra asks…

How does is a company allowed to extract natural resources throughout Canada?

hi,

Does a company need permission from the government or any body in order to be allowed to work the environment and extract resources (oil, uranium)? Is this a good choice for continual investment in Canada? Is the government involved in this type of extraction and industry?

Thanks

Chip answers:

Any resource extraction in Canada must be approved by Government. Talk with your local Government office. Here in B.C. I would go to service Canada and they will give you a number to call.

Good luck pillaging the earth.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_do_Canada_and_the_united_States_have_in_common

* Canada has a policy of economic engagement with Castro’s government, while the United States maintains an economic embargo of Cuba. In 1996 the U.S. Helms-Burton Act was passed, barring anyone from doing business with Cuba. Canada then passed the Foreign Extraterritorial Measures Act, which prohibited its citizens from observing the Helms- Burton Act. Although the issue has never been resolved, neither the United States nor Canada has enforced its laws against the other nation’s practices.

* Canada supports the United Nations’ International Criminal Court (ICC). The U.S. Government argues that giving such power to the ICC could be a threat to the national sovereignty of any country. The United States will not become a party to the court because it could be placed before the court for politically motivated accusations if it were a member.

* Canada advocates the Mine Ban Treaty, which the United Sates endorses in philosophy but not in practice, as it would further endanger South Korea and its 37,000 U.S. Troops.

* The largest current dispute is over border security. Our common border has been so porous that it is of little consequence. Since September 11, 2001, U.S. Officials have become more concerned that foreigners can easily enter Canada through its inviting immigration laws and then can cross that porous border into the United States.

These disputes are not like environmental or fishing quarrels. They are not easily solved by drawing a line on a map, signing an agreement, or shaking hands. These more serious disagreements involve international philosophy. Some may be solved by future events or even the passage of time. Let’s consider the four just mentioned.

* Castro can’t live forever. Cuba can go the way of eastern Europe into freedom if its citizens recognize that their pauperization is a result of the communist system Castro enforced, made worse by the death of their old benefactor, the Soviet Union.

* The United Nations is losing U.S. And international credibility. The ICC may be rejected by many if a decision is based on political partiality rather than the purity of a judicial foundation.

* The United States will sign the Mine Ban Treaty after the threats that prevent such an agreement are gone (such as the DMZ on the Korean peninsula).

* Both countries are in danger of terrorist attacks. The disputes regarding immigration and border control must be solved soon if the war against terrorism is to be won. If the Canadian government doesn’t tighten its immigration policy, the U.S. Side of the border must be greatly reinforced as part of U.S. Homeland security.
