Industrial And Hazardous Waste Management

This unit focuses on management principles related to industrial and hazardous wastes. Environmental managers face pressures to satisfy corporate financial targets and to comply with environmental regulations.

For this assignment, search an article in the CSU Online Library on pollution prevention in management decision-making. Then, write an article critique on the selected article. In your critique, ensure you complete the following:

  • Appraise the principles of pollution prevention in management decision-making.
  • Assess options for management’s optimal decision-making.
  • Apply the concepts in the article regarding waste management, pollution prevention, and air quality to your professional career.

You can supplement your critique with information from the unit lesson and at least another source. Be sure to cite and reference all sources in APA format, including the unit lesson.

 

Future Climate Changes

Future Climate Changes

You are an environmental scientist reflecting on the climate changes that have and will occur throughout your lifetime.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word letter to a colleague describing the environmental conditions that occurred during the last decade and how these conditions will affect future climate changes.

  • Describe the environmental conditions that occurred during the last decade.
  • Speculate about the future climate changes that may occur.
  • Discuss how various aspects of the planet may look 50 years from now. What domino effect may occur because of continuous human impact on the environment?
  • Consider the human connection to hydrologic changes, how global warming will affect the main components of the cryosphere, and the subsequent effects that will cause changes in drylands.
  • Include details concerning what daily living may be like, available foods, effects on animal populations, and cultural changes.

Cite at least two references.

Format your letter consistent with APA guidelines

Emergency And Disaster Management

Emergency And Disaster Management

Working with other agencies can often help to gather the manpower necessary to treat an influx of patients. In times of disaster, individuals from these agencies may need to act as traditional first responders. However, in case of an outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever, these individuals may be hesitant to potentially put themselves in danger.

On the basis of your understanding of the topic, answer the following questions:

  • What fears or reservations may these individuals from other agencies have about acting as traditional first responders?
  • How would you eliminate these fears in an effort to obtain the man power necessary to treat the influx of patients? Provide suggestions. Be sure to justify your response with factual support.
  • What would you do if you were unable to eliminate these fears?

cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

Air Pollution Disasters

Air Pollution Disasters

Question 1:

Choose one of the air pollution disasters described in Chapter 1 (Meuse River Valley, 1934; Donora Pennsylvania, 1948; or London, 1952), and discuss the incident in detail. What were the causes and consequences of the disaster? Your response should contain additional information not covered in the textbook.
Question 2:
Research the major sources and emissions of air pollution in your community (www.scorecard.org is a good place to start). What chemicals are they emitting, and how are these chemicals transported through your community (non-point sources, smokestacks, etc.)? Were you surprised at the results? Do you plan to take any action based on the information you discovered?

Your response to each question should be at least 200 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. You must also use one outside source. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
