• a summary of the literature review which provides context for why the innovative environmental approach/technology was selected and how it would allow us to be more environmentally sustainable.

Report
The final report is to focus on the execution of the feasibility assessment and identification of the requirements needed to begin using the selected environmental approach/technology in Ontario/Canada. The final report must use the Evaluation Framework (developed in above section) and identify the factors that would enable or constrain the approach/technology from being implemented in the Ontario/Canadian context.
The final report should also identify the requirements needed to overcome any constraining factors.
The Final Report should include the following:
• A summary of the literature review which provides context for why the innovative environmental approach/technology was selected and how it would allow us to be more environmentally sustainable.
• An evaluation of the environmental approach/technology using the evaluation framework (i.e. evaluation criteria and benchmark criteria). The evaluation must be supported by scholarly references that provide evidence/justification for the evaluation of the approach/technology against the evaluation and benchmark criteria.
• A discussion of the feasibility of implementing environmental approach/technology in an Ontario/Canadian context. This portion of the final report should clearly identify facilitating/constraining factors to implementing the approach/technology (based on the evaluation outcomes) and the key requirements to successfully implement the innovative approach/technology in Ontario/Canada. This may include a discussion of changes that need to occur to overcome any factors that would limit our ability to implement the approach/technology.

Respond to Classmate below after reading :
What Happens To NYC’s 3.2 Million Tons Of Trash | Big Business | Business Insider
From watching the video I learned that NYC waste is not actually processed in the city itself. Instead it is sent further away from the city to be dealt with. It takes thousands of workers to get rid of waste. There is an estimate of 3.2 million tons of trash per year, making it at least 450-600 tons per day. In order to get this process started, almost 2 thousand sanitation trucks are sent out for collection every morning at 5am. The trucks get dumped at the waste station and eventually load the waste into containers beneath the ground, making transport easier. The responsibility for getting rid of the waste gets pasted over to multiple places before the process is actually complete. There are thousands of people who work together to make this happen. Finally towards the end of the process of getting rid of waste, the trash is burned in big incinerators at 2000 F. After this process is complete, the leftover waste that has now turned into metal pieces and ash are now used to make cars and cover landfills. The outcome is that only 30% of NYC waste turns into energy, the rest is actual waste.
MAKING MONEY: Recycling – Turning Waste into valuable raw materials | WELT Documentary
There is money being made from the waste we leave behind. Recycling is a process that turns materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and transforms them into new products. Materials such as glass, aluminum, paper, plastics, and textiles can be recycled, and doing so consumes significantly less energy than producing these same goods from virgin materials.

Discuss the precautionary principle.

This week, we learned toxicology, plate tectonics, environmental hazards, the rock cycle, and
contagious diseases. For your Unit 3 Complete assignment, write a narrative essay (minimum 1000
words) in which you address and discuss the questions and statements listed below. Use at least
three scholarly sources and remember to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the READ and
ATTEND sections in your essay. Cite your sources in APA format.
1. Discuss the four major types of environmental health hazards. Where does BPA fit in these
categories and how can you get exposed to it? Discuss the precautionary principle.
2. Many people across the world die from exposure to infectious diseases. Why are the numbers so
much higher in developing countries as they are in developed countries?
3. In what ways does affluence affect the natural environment compared to how poverty affects the
natural environment?
4. Differentiate between an LD50 and an ED50 response to toxicity.
5. Thoroughly describe the rock cycle and tectonic plate movement.
6. Why are minerals so important? Why is there such an issue getting consumers to recycling them?
7. Explain how scientist identify and assess risk.

A few days later, it is determined that the tornado that struck your home was rated ef-3 on the enhanced fujita scale.

Question Set A
Pleases Describe the structure and characteristics of the specific type of thunderstorm that formed this tornado.
And describe some details of the type of damage your home likely received based on the given information. for all scenarios.
1. Swinging in a hammock in your backyard on a warm, humid Saturday afternoon in late spring, you observe a towering cumulonimbus cloud building in the sky not more than a couple of miles from your home. Fifteen minutes later, you hear thunder, and a minute after that, experience a strong gust of wind, the smell of dirt, and a significant temperature drop. After another minute, you are out of the hammock and running into your house as a heavy downpour of rain begins. Synthesize and apply related concepts from Module 8 regarding thunderstorm structure, characteristics, and stages of development, to explain the reasoning behind each aspect of the experience described in the scenario.
2.You are in the living room of your two-story wood-framed home in Moore, Oklahoma (in the central United States), on a warm, humid evening in the late spring. Suddenly you receive a tornado warning on your weather radio, and within another minute, you hear the city’s tornado sirens blaring, prompting you to immediately retreat to your home’s underground tornado shelter in the backyard. After the tornado passes, you emerge from the shelter to discover that your home has been significantly damaged. A few days later, it is determined that the tornado that struck your home was rated EF-3 on the Enhanced Fujita scale.
Question Set B
Please describe the changes in pressure and wind speed that the data will reflect along this entire path. And the changes in wind direction, turbulence, and visibility experienced by the crew along this entire path.
1. Suppose that you are a United States Air Force pilot attached to a squadron based near the coast of Florida’s panhandle, which runs east-west along the Gulf of Mexico. Your friend is a pilot attached to another squadron based on the panhandle located 25 miles east of your squadron’s base. The center of a northward-moving hurricane with a 23 mile-wide eye is forecast to make landfall exactly halfway between the two bases (It may help to make a sketch of the scenario.). Qualitatively (i.e., with descriptive words, not numerical values) describe the differences between the wind direction, wind speed, and storm surge that the coastline near your squadron’s base will experience versus that of your friend’s when the hurricane makes landfall. Synthesize and apply related concepts from Module 9 regarding hurricane structure and characteristics to support your answers.
2.You are the pilot of a hurricane reconnaissance aircraft, on a mission to retrieve data from within a Saffir-Simpson category 3 hurricane located in the Gulf of Mexico. Part of the mission entails flying a straight-line path across the hurricane from one edge of the storm, through its center (passing directly through the eye), to the opposite edge, at 6,000 feet above the ocean surface. Synthesize and apply related concepts from Module 9 regarding hurricane structure and characteristics to qualitatively (i.e, with descriptive words, not numerical values)

She explains the adverse effects of global warming on life, including sinking territories, rapid resource depletion, and illnesses among organisms.

Global Warming Can Change Our Lives by Rosemary Burgess
“The weather patterns are rapidly changing in all parts of the world. The increased rainfall in certain regions affects the balance that animals and plants need to survive. Climate changes cause health problems, animal migration, and the lack of food resources.”
Bussey’s essay points out the dire fact that global warming is no longer a prediction but an ongoing crisis. She explains the adverse effects of global warming on life, including sinking territories, rapid resource depletion, and illnesses among organisms.
