About me:

My name is Alyssa DiGiacomo. I am from a small town called Horseheads, NY which is in Upstate NY between Elmira,NY and Corning, NY. I live off campus and i get to school by driving. My major is Environmental Science and i picked this major because i enjoy being outdoors, learning about nature, and ways to help the environment. I picked this area because it was close to home and I heard they had a good Environmental Science program. I am not sure what i would like to do for a career yet; I am still exploring options. My photo is of me on the driving range at Willowcreek Golf Course, NY.

What happened was a man and his two sons illegally dumped 31,000 gallons of contaminated soil along 240 miles of roadsides in 14 North Carolina counties.

For the U.S. articles, the certain types of energies were voted upon political groups such as democrats and republicans. The democrats have solar power as their top choice and the republicans have natural gas as their top choice. For the U.K.

The American group chose a similar online article from USA Today concerning permafrost melting in Alaska.  As a group we discussed the similarities between the two articles. We also discussed any differences between the two articles, but found only one difference.
