The Green Movement
Purpose:
The purpose of this lab report is to demonstrate how changes in abiotic factor such as changes in precipitation patterns can influence plant populations.

Introduction: During this observation I was observe ring the plant species called Kentucky Blue Grass. In this observation I will show how changes in the weather can affect the population of the grass. I will also explain how this may have some effect on Global Warming as well.

Hypothesis: My hypothesis of this lab was that if you have more rain the population of the grass will greatly increase. Along with decent to great weather to help the grass grows and become healthy.

Methods: There were three different times that I changed the rainy season to last The first experiment the rainy season lasted 150 days for five years, the next season lasted 100 days for five years and the last rainy season as set to last 50 days for five years.

Results:
My hypothesis was correct to a certain extent. I would think that the cooler the temperature the better the population but it seems that the warner the weather is when the biggest population occur.
Discussion/Analysis:
During the first observation I changed the rainy season to last 150 days. When the experiment started the temperature outside was 30 degrees and the population of the grass started at 500,000. As the first year went on the population slowly raised but for the most part stayed the same. When you look at the last days of year three, there seems to be a dramatic low point in the population. While looking at the data when the temperature raises to 42.1 degrees the population went down to 54,748. Going into the fourth year the population made another drastic turn and the population rose to 609,747. Getting close to the end of the fifth year the population…...

...such as financial industries where sustainable financing and banking are the new catch-phrases. Delving into the green initiatives in Malaysia, we see the efforts and support that the government has put into realising the green concept in the country. Malaysia gazetted the Environmental Quality (Industrial Effluent) Regulations, Environmental Quality (Sewage) Regulations and Environmental Quality (Control of Pollution from solid waste transfer stations and Landfill) in 2009. Further to this, Malaysia pledged to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 40% by 2020. The seriousness of the Malaysian government’s intentions towards climate change and the need for energy security and green technology, ultimately led to the establishment of the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water on 9 April 2009. The National Green Technology Policy is defined by four main pillars – energy, minimising energy consumption; environment, conserving and minimising environmental impact; economy, enhancing economic development through technology and social, a need to improve the quality of life for all. The policy basically intends to utilise energy efficiently in bid to enhance the economy while increasing the nation’s capability for green technology innovation and educating the public on green technology. The government has put much effort in ensuring the creation of a green community in the tenth, eleventh and twelfth Malaysia plans. In the current Malaysia plan there is much......

...on Green Management in chapter five. List some pros and cons to companies moving into green management. Other than companies mentioned in your textbook, describe the green efforts of one company. If your company has moved into green management describe the efforts it is taking. Where would you label your company in the “Green Approaches” of exhibit 5-4? Organizations that are doing their part in being socially responsible are sometimes known as being “green”. In my past if you were called green it meant something totally different, but in today’s business cultures it now is a good thing to be known as “green”. A lot of organizations are asking the question, to be green, or not to be green? For organizations to answer that question they need to review their own economic performances compared against their current social responsibilities (Coulter & Robbins, 2009). Some organizations have embraced this “green” movement with unmatched fervor. Interface Inc is a flooring company that provides all different types of flooring for its customers and was founded in the United States in 1972 and has recently embraced the “green” movement (Birchfield, 2009). The CEO of Interface Ray Anderson has called his companies endeavor “Mount Sustainability” and Anderson has challenged his employees to be “green” by eliminating waste, reducing energy use, and by redesigning their business operating systems (Birchfield, 2009). Ray Anderson has found the answer to his green......

The Green Belt Movement

...The Green Belt Movement Brad Nordstrom Grantham University The Kenyon government degraded and mismanaged the environment stripping the land of its trees and resources. This resulted in sever soil erosion which polluted the rivers and streams leaving the rural people with no clean water. In 1977, a women named Wangari Maathai founded the Green Belt Movement. Wangari Maathai, was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 2004 for founding the Green Belt Movement. Maathai is a Kenyan environmentalist and political activist who is focused on conserving the environment while ensuring womens rights and equality are brought to the forefront. The Green Belt Movement is an environmental organization that gives the power back to communities mainly to women to safeguard the environment. The reason this movement started was because in rural areas in Kenya women were reporting there streams were drying up, their food supplies were less and less and firewood was becoming scarcer. Maathai was a witness to soil erosion caused by treeless environments, she felt bound to do something to save the earth. She could not believe the results of deforesting would be the loss of exotic species and organisms. The Green Belt Movement’s mission is “to raise community consciousness on self-determination, equity, improved livelihood securities and environmental conservation using trees as an entry point.” Thanks largely to the efforts of both the GBM and the NCWK, women learn to......

...A meeting of minds in a lean, green world | Two years on, one company has used videoconferencing to reduce its emissions by 40,000kg of CO2 a year | | Videoconferencing can save customers money in ongoing overheads and travel costs, as well as slash carbon emissions in the drive for green IT, if the experience of public sector services provider Amey is any guide. Two years ago, Amey engaged BT as the reseller to phase in a videoconferencing set-up, delivered as a managed service. According to Keith Sexton, director of health, safety, environment and quality at Amey, videoconferencing so far saves the organisation. That is in an 11,000-employee company that manages vital infrastructure and public services at 200 locations around the UK, with 80 per cent of its carbon footprint caused by travel and transport activity. "We have an internal target to reduce our carbon. But if you look at the type of clients we bid for, about 80 per cent are government or quasigovernment organizations. These clients expressly ask us what we are doing about our carbon footprint and how we will fit in with the overall governmental savings," said Sexton. Increased savings While video conferencing is not the primary way for Amey to reduce carbon emissions, it has contributed significantly - mainly by enabling staff to have routine meetings over the airwaves rather than having to get in a car or plane and go there. "We did make the decision last year that we would try to reduce our......

...Stephanie Martinez Ms. Hawkins English 976 November 24, 2014 “You Must Vote” On September 21, 2012 Hank Green discusses in his Vlog “You Must Vote” how important it is as an American to vote. Green examines all the horrible reasons why people say that they don’t want to, or why they can’t vote. One example Green gives is “one single vote might not count towards who wins the election but every vote does count” (Green). What he is saying is to those of you who think that your one vote won’t change anything, but in fact it does. You need multiple people to make a difference and you can be one of those people. Green talks about how Americans have a voice in this country and voting is a way to get one of those voices heard. We have pretty good system when it comes to voting what we say goes we all have a say in what happens in this country. “Voting is our responsibility” (Green). Green basically is saying that voting is important so all those excuses you have are just excuses and you need to let your voice be heard. I defiantly agree with Green I have never voted and I realize now that my vote might not have a huge impact to what happens but it is still an impact. If only half of people voted in the United States then the other half of people wouldn’t matter. For example, if they voted gay marriage illegal then it will be because no one else is voting to help change it. If all Americans voted then everyone’s view and opinions would matter. After, watching this video I......

The Local Food Movement: Going Green

...The Local Food Movement: Going Green The food system is changing very fast nowadays. As we improve the quality of our life, we also develop the new ways to supply the population with food. Our growing population’s demand on food is enormous, and this demand led to the development of the processed food industry. This industry causes a lot of problems to humanity, harming the environment and health. But for the past decades our food system has significantly changed; new movements has occurred, and one them, the “locavore” movement, which supports the idea of the consumption of the locally grown food, is developing very fast. What do people mean by “local food”? According to the article “Local Food Systems: Concepts, Impacts, and Issues”, “the local food system is a concept, used to describe the distance between producers and consumers” (10). Alisa Smith and J.B. MacKinnon, the authors of 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating, put the boundaries of 100-mile radius because as they say: “A 100-mile radius is large enough to reach beyond a big city and small enough to feel truly local” (qtd. in DeWeerdt 62). As this movement grows, more and more people are becoming interested in local food system, and in particular, in its benefits to society. People should eat the food, which was grown within 100 miles of their living place because the local food system can benefit the population in terms of health, environment and economy. Health is one of the most important issues in the......

We will further discuss how these power bases could have been used better to gain compliance from Thomas. The use of power in the case study is apparent through the actions of Thomas’ boss, Davis and the division Vice President McDonald. Thomas Green holds the position of Senior Market Specialist with Dynamic Displays, a company that provides self-service options to many different organizations. Green was promoted to this position after six months of working for Dynamic Displays. Green was selected for promotion into this position by Shannon McDonald, the Travel Division Vice President. Green reports to the Marketing Director, Frank Davis, Davis has been with Dynamic Displays for 17 years. Davis was slightly upset by McDonald promoting Green into the Senior Market Specialist position, as he believed that he would be selecting the person to be promoted. When McDonald promoted Green she informed him that she was apprehensive because of his lack of managerial experience and his new position was very different from his past sales positions. Less than a month into his new position Green attended the 2008 Budget Plan meeting presented by Davis. This was Green’s first time seeing the planning and forecasting process. In the meeting Davis presented a growth for Green’s region that he did not agree with and Green spoke up about his......

The Green Movement

... The Green Movement There have been many movements in time but the green movement is the most important movement in time. The green movement is to educate people how to live a life more dependent on natural resources and to seek energy from cleaner sources other then harmful energy choices. There are many long-term effects of going green. For example, improved health, cleaner water, climate change, economic benefits (Duggan 1). There are also negative long-term effects of not going green. For example, natural resources become depleted at an extraordinary rate. If people don’t adopt this movement there might not be any natural resources for the next generation. One of the biggest downfalls of going green is mostly directed towards individuals, businesses and their wallets. Green supplies are generally greater in cost then the traditionally used supplies(Roberts 1). The cost to convert a 2,500 square foot house with green options are energy audit 0-$500 with a one or less year payback, Duct Sealing $1,350 with a 5 to 4 year payback, insulation $2,000-$5,000 with a 5.7 to 14 year payback, Storm Windows $2,500-$4,750 4 to 7 year payback, Tankless Water Heater $1,489 with a 8.5 year payback (1). Even the smallest supplies have a higher cost: Compact Fluorescent light bulbs cost $136 (1) vs. the traditional $40.00 ones. The flip side is that the traditional light does not have a cost payback. One the other hand, there are benefits to the economy. The green movement would...

...Green There has been big talk about saving earth or going green, over the past few years. The main purpose is to preserve earth’s natural raw resources because we are running out of natural resources including gas, oil, and coal. There are energy efficient products being promoted such as battery operated cars, appliances, light bulbs and even homes. The problem is many energy efficient items are so expensive, that not everyone can afford to pay for an energy efficient car or an energy efficient home, but there are still many ways to help save the planet earth. Think about what is in that trash bag before you throw it away. Saving the trash could possibly mean saving the earth. If consumers could do something with the trash they discard the manufacturer would not have to use raw natural materials to make products. The average person generates four pounds of trash per day (Brown Par 2 ). If consumers could recycle some of that trash they could reduce landfills. Landfills are a place where your discarded trash goes; it is then buried. Not only are landfills not good for the environment, but they are not good for the wildlife. Another good reason for recycling is it saves energy because the big companies do not have to burn as much energy to produce something new. By using recycled materials it cuts down on the energy consumption as well as the cost for consumers. That means more money in everyone’s pocket. Consumers can also save a lot money recycling because instead of......

...Reference Green Information Technology (Green IT) refers to environmentally sustainable computing that addresses both IT and related sustainability problems. Over recent years, Green IT has become one of the world`s top important issues as both organizations and governments came under pressure to address the environmental sustainability concerns about Green IT. According to Elliot et.al, 2008, despite the increasing concerns from governments, businesses and organizations to Green their IT, their capability towards Green It still remains questionable as there is not much literature that has modelled a Green It capability construct and developed a valid and reliable instrument to measure this construct. The main purpose of this paper is to highlight the key impacts of Green Information Technology and to identify the intuitiveness and key dimensions of organizations to develop a reliable and valid operation toward Green IT. This study can be considered as a preliminary attempt to construct an understanding towards the impact and the progressive reliable instrument that organizations used building towards the “Green It” concept. This paper is structured as follows: First; the understanding of Green It which includes the impact and the advantages of Green It .Second; the implementation and the development of the Green It concept by the organization and the society. Third; Conclusion, liability of this study and the potential future this research has highlighted. ......
