About me:

John Bloodgood

From Blodgett Mills, NY(very small)

I have always lived in an appartment or at home but I could never do the dorms.

I car pool with my brother back and forth to school this semester.

I am in the Environmental Science Program but I will switch it to Forestry or Conservation for the Bachaelors Degree.

I took this class because it seemed to match up with the credits for the degree I want to earn.

I don't have a pin-point profession right now that I am aiming for but I know I want to be outside while doing it.

After having watched An Inconvenient Truth, the American and the UK groups came to a conclusion that the issues raised by Al Gore are highly relevant to the degrees of both courses, and that the discussion would have to be concentrated on the key ideas of the film.

After an extensive discussion with our American counterparts, we discovered that our standpoints on fracking were more related than diverse. Common knowledge states that fracking may have severe impacts on public health (e.g. contamination of water supplies) and the environment (releasing methane into the atmosphere), but overall proves to be an effective technique in extracting previously unrecoverable fossil resources. In the past decade, there has been a decline in oil reservoir discoveries, resulting in a challenge when it comes to supplying the rapidly increasing energy demand.

Historical summaryEarly European offshore wind energy studies, carried out during the late 1970s and early 1980s, generally concentrated on assessments of three key interrelated issues:-• wind speeds and wind characteristics,• The magnitude of the energy resource,• The feasibility and cost of building wind turbines offshore

There were many similarities and differences between the U.S. articles and the U.K. articles. For the discussion our group came up with, we saw that for both sets of articles, the people in communities seemed to favor certain renewable energies that were more popular with the public officials; they were drawn towards the more voted for energies. 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.

In our society today we face 3 energy challenges: meeting the growing demand for energy, ensuring energy security, and reducing the emission of harmful air emissions. We can potentially help keep these three issues from getting any worse by using more renewable energy. This article suggest we utilize more of our farm lands as commercial wind farms. A commercial wind farm is a great source of energy without using any of the worlds resources. Although the issue this article states is finding out where to construct renewable facilities.

Our group chose an article about the effect of climate change on trees if temprature would rise  by 4 degrees celcius in London, UK. A team collected native tree species from North America such as the  field maple to plant in the UK to see how the growing conditions will be for the trees by 2050. I noticed  similarities between the articles such as the UK is part of the EU and is very active in activities to  preserve the planet such as cutting down the carbon emissions and planting tree species to adjust for

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/energy/2012/11/121116-california... The United States as a whole decided not to take action in climate change. But a few individual states and cities chose to do something anyway, one of which is California. The article is about how they are the leading force in climate change, and how they were the ones who started it. It also asks a big question, do we have to do this alone?
