Franklin\'s maxim is just as true today as it was in the 18th century in that trade is enriching nearly all nations today.

global oil crisis When I was a child, recycling was only important at school. My teachers would always tell me that recycling was good for the earth.

I started recycling aluminum cans, because I found out that companies paid money for recycled cans. The first time I took my cans to be recycled I got forty dollars, so naturally it became a regular hobby of mine. Not only did the money im

How do your politicians really feel about the environment Heather Anton Environmental science AP Second Quarter Project Through my research I have come to the decision that Senator Robert Torricelli stands negative on environmental issues and Representative Frank LoBiondo stands positive on environmental issues according to their voting records.

By the same token, mushrooms were mushrooms, some were palatable, some were offensive and some would induce death, but they were all mushrooms. Swedish botanist Carl von Linné, better known as Linnaeus, recognized how the casual terminol

NGOs Help or Hinderance NGOs: Help or Hindrance? In his article, John McCormick establishes that the number of NGOs present in the world today probably exists well into the six figures (P. 60). Assuming that the role of NGOs is to keep governmental organizations in check when it comes to environmental issues, it frustrated me to think that there actually could be such problems with environmental issues. Certainly hundreds of thousands of such organizations must be able to regulate the environmen

presidents1 Environmental issues, and policies have recently come to the for-front of American politics in the past four decades.

Sex Education in the Public School System Sex Education in the Public School System. The topic of sex education in public schools has been a hot one for some time.
