, Saudi Arabia, for the academic year 2013/2014. I completed my four (04) years Bachelor of Science (B. Sc. Hon’s) degree in Environmental Science and Resource Management with securing CGPA 3.58 and Master of Science (MS) degree in Environmental Science securing 3.23 (out of 4.0) respectively in my...
In this paper I will attempt to enlighten anyone who is just beginning to look into ethics as I have just done in this class. I will begin by explaining ethics and its origin as far as I have learned from this class and additional reading. I will then move to show what I have...

Principles of Environmental Science

What is environmental science? Environmental science is the methodical, scientific study of the ecosystem in...
the future, science will again change and it will most likely be different from what we know right now. Though some facts are already proven, we can’t really be too sure on what is going on around this world. All we can do right now is to stay, look back and marvel at how science changed and will change the world.
7 environmental principles I learned from my old school in the Philippines
thought it is all about science like animals, plants, chemicals and any other scientific things. I later on learned that, it is about biodiversity. (Not really sure. But as I observed and learned, usually our topic focuses in this biodiversity and other related topics to it.) Not just biodiversity...
oblivious of their illness, kindled my dream of bettering this inadequate system. ! My passion for the sciences set me on course of becoming a doctor. After the ﬁrst week of AP Biology, I realized my zeal for the subject. From microorganisms to the physiology of white blood cells, I learned more in...
warming?????). From doing this paper I’ve learned that we are a nation that influences the whole world with our industrial ideas. This makes the other countries want to industrialize, which hurts the environment. No matter what everyone else says, I believe that global warming is a serious problem that...

Professional development is not a new concept, but it is becoming increasingly important. The continuing pace of change in materials science and engineering means that what we learned in our initial training courses soon becomes dated and irrelevant. It...
learned (if any?). Ultimately, the nature vs. nurture battle is still ongoing. Although we still have much to learn about how much of what we are and do is determined by our DNA and how much by our hormones and/or life experience, research clearly suggests that all play a part. In other words, nature...
hazard to our ozone layer by depleting it. Families and companies should fix leakage to prevent further pollution. This is related to our class because we talked about how CFC chemicals are affecting our ozone layer which is a environmental hazard in many ways. I learned that hair sprays, and lot of...
program funded by NSF, I worked in materials science and engineering under Professor David Sholl. Many environmental concerns suggest we should find alternative fuel sources. Pure hydrogen, which can be used in fuel cells, is one alternative fuel. My research, “Computational Modeling of Hydrogen...
and try to reduce our carbon dioxide omissions because it will have many harmful effects to the world’s environment.
Discussion- What I learned throughout this is experiment is that the world’s population growth rate is very high. In order to live sustainably we...
The debate around what motivates the actions that we as humankind take in response to stimuli, if the actions are natural as a result of heritable traits or as a result of nurture the environmental factors that affect us during developmental stages, is one that has concerned some of the world’s...
decisions. And I think science really supports that point of view.
People always ask what causes people to be gay and I think the broader question is what causes sexual orientation. And when you view it from that perspective this research is every bit as much about heterosexuality as it is...
land exploitation practices leading to biodiversity loss, or the usage of the internet and cell phones, which allure us into mass personalization of technologies; which in turn increases each individual’s environmental impact according to the I= PAT formula. Technology also leads to environmental...
Columbia, a river that, while subdued by the presence of dams, remains a dynamic and often unpredictable place. I learned over time that piloting a large vessel is as much an art as a science, a practice that is well described as a matter of collaboration.
The river, in its own way and on its own...
everything is properly done. One thing I learned over those long, hot summer days, was hard work takes dedication and no matter what race you are or how big you are, there’s always a need for another helping hand in construction.

thought would free us has actually encaged us and enslaved us. Our mind has developed technology. The side effect of living in a world of concrete with a bunch of machines has been that our mind has disconnected ourselves from what is natural. Science Fiction does the best job of bring that...

1. Recognize and explain that decisions influencing the use of natural resources may have benefits, drawbacks, unexpected consequences, and tradeoffs.
this giant corporation deceived this entire community into thinking that the water was edible to drink. (Enger & Smith. 2006, Bos, Carole D. J.D. 1999 – 2005, Soderbergh. 2000).
I think that all of this very much closely follows what I’ve learned in class. For every action there is a...

life, it makes sense to apply it to my professional life and my career. The best way for me to start applying what I learned from the film in my entrepreneurial venture is to aim to make it self-sustainable, this is how global warming will affect it.
An inconvenient truth is a true life-changing...
these poor people consume only a small amount of environmental resources. Shiva continues that “Each child born in an affluent society will consume 10-100 times as many resources then an African family, and contribute as much pollution.” All I know about this issue is what we have learned in class...
taking a holistic and hands on approach to caring for our planet and we would learn to be creative in how we conduct ourselves. We could potentially build a great economy and healthier atmosphere if we took what we learned at school and applied to our everyday living. Then, I would use all of my...
agree with. I learned that I care a lot bout being economically equal and everybody should have a say in something. I was impressed on how much I care about people's education and how that everybody should get a chance at a good education no matter where your from, what race you are, and where you...
There are two major ways of reducing negative human impact and enhancing ecosystem services. I research economics, and the environment, and found an article written by Thomas Callen. The first is environmental management; this approach is based largely on information gained from earth science...

According to my understanding, if this new subject is introduced, it will not cause stress to the minds of the students, rather give them a break from their hectic and monotonous routine and do something good in the process.
