Before building a new power plant, a utility company must gain permission and procure the required permits for construction from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). At this time, the policy of the EPA is to limit construction of power plants to clean burning natural gas systems (to reduce emissions of CO2). One result of this policy is the reluctance of utility companies to build new power plants. California has recently experienced serious problems with their ability to provide enough electricity for its residents because of this reason. One result of this problem is that utility rates in California jumped 500% to 600% in a one-year period.With the above information in mind, write a short essay of at least 1 page discussing pros and cons of this EPA policy. Be sure to keep in mind things like environmental impacts but also issues relating to social impacts due to higher electrical prices. Submit your paper to the appropriate folder in the Dropbox area of the course.
Visit the World Health Organization web site. Look up the current status of Ebola and Leishmaniasis, and compare them to a disease (of your choice) that occurs closer to where you live (consult Figure 8.6 in your text for information).What organisms cause the three diseases? What is their current distribution and prevalence? What environmental (think of natural environment, not their home environment) and social factors (that affect the environment) contribute to their spread? Does any treatment exist for the diseases?

Some environmental regulations seem to stand alone whereas others act like add-ons. Research the Clean Water Act (CWA) regulations under Section 402, Section 403, and Section 405.

The purpose of this response is for you to try and relate the ideas introduced in Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 with your own lived experience. The statement I would like you to respond to is this: identify at least one way in which forces of economic and/or political globalization have materialized in your home town/city**= feel free to choose a city that you didnt grow up in, but you know well for other reasons. How does globalization actually appear in peoples lives? Think about where you grew up. Did a factory close down, changing the economic basis of the city? Can you link that to globalization? Did increasing global connectivity enable you to expand your knowledge of the world, or (especially) your feeling of rightfully belonging in it? Are decisions made far beyond the boundaries of your chosen city transforming it? Has the city you lived in being able to take advantage of the forces of globalization, or has it generally been negatively affected by them? Have locally owned stores increasingly been replaced with large corporations? These are just some ways in which you might try to address this question. How have people responded to issues caused by globalization? There are five points available for this assignment. I, therefore, anticipate between 3-4 paragraphs in response. Introduce your city, then explore how globalization affects it. If you can think of more than one example, you should mention them. I expect you to use the reading as a springboard for thinking through your own experiences growing up, and how they have been affected by forces of globalization.
