What is Superfund? If a remedy (that is, a proposed cleanup project) leaves hazardous materials on a site, what standard must it meet? Is Superfund cleanup an issue for which we should bend environmental regulations to achieve its goals? Support your opinions with facts and include actual Superfund site examples.
Cite all sources used in APA style including both in-text citations and a reference list at the end of the essay.

Alternately, you may create your own weather log.Select a single weather forecast source, for example, a TV station, radio station, website, or newspaper.

The paper should consider the following questions:Overall, how accurate was your source in forecasting weather over the 30-day analysis period? What contributed to the accuracy (or inaccuracy of the forecast)?Which elements were most accurately forecast? Which elements were least accurately forecast? Why?Do you see any trends or correlations between weather elements?Did a front move through the forecasted area? What changes were observed? What were the characteristics of the front?Did the weather during your 30-day period deviate from the historical weather in that period? Were there any anomalies? What might be the cause?Cite any sources and provide links, if possible.Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
Keohane and Olson, Chapter 5, Question 6: In the international treaty game described by Keohane & Olmstead Figure 5.5, both countries would be better off if each contributed to the clean-up of a shared pollution problem, but this is not what we expect to happen. Why is this better outcome unlikely to occur?Assignment Instructions: Your response should show depth and detail and should reference assigned reading materials (use citations where possible at least 3 references including the book chapter).

Part I: Introduce yourself to your classmates with your name, location, current employment, and future goals. (Memphis Tn, quest Diagnostics Laboratory.. promotion in EHS) Part II: Discuss the ways environmental laws have impacted your life. Have you been exposed to toxic substances? Please explain. Please include the name of the person or question to which you are replying in the subject line. For example, “Tom’s response to Susan’s comment.” ALSO PLEASE REPLY TO ANOTHER STUDENTS COMMENT BELOW. Michelle: My name is Michelle Brenner, I Live in Tampa, Florida, and I am an instructor /Proctor for food safety and a guest teacher for Pasco High School. I am reaching my goals of continuing my education in Occupational Health and Safety, and then moving up to what I can achieve, Ph.D. is what lays ahead for me. Living in South Florida, it is perhaps that we live near coastlines that the effect of Environmental laws have impacted how I treat my surroundings, I grew up in Fort Lauderdale for 40 years, and now I am in Tampa. But the precious commodity is our Everglades and our waterways. Realizing the impact that man has on these resources have brought attention to the laws and regulations. It has been generalized, due to I have never worked in areas of concern. Still, when you live and play in Florida, you tend to notice impacts on the natural resources, and when there has been damaged, and the conservation efforts. I have not been exposed to any toxic substances, like those caused by refineries, but our rainwater runoff tends to pick up all those pesticides and fertilizers that are used here. The one thing that is dangerous in Florida is the mosquitos, which carry many diseases, Malaria, dengue, West Nile, and Ziko. That is why Florida is one of the states that continues spraying of the pesticide of Naled. However, EPA suggests that exposure is not enough to cause a human health concern. As a rule, though, my family tends to appreciate the Everglades and the waterways of South Florida, and abide by rules and regulations as not to harm the areas we live and play.
