1b)Coal is a fossil fuel, which means when it is burnt it releases unwanted pollutants which have a negative and harmful impact on our environment. These pollutants are: Carbon Dioxide- This gas is considered to be the most harmful pollutant as it contributes to global warming. Coal is attributed to approximately 20% of the total pollution globally per year of all the fossil fuels. Sulfur emissions- when sulfur mixes with oxygen a harmful substance is formed. SO2, sulfur dioxide effects our trees and water systems and is the prominent cause of acid rain.
Some of the major negative economic effects of natural gas drilling are the enormous amounts of pollutants released into our water sources. With estimates coming close to 50 trillion cubic feet of natural gas sitting in the Marcellus, it’s no wonder companies are willing to drill at any cost to the local water systems and communities. In other words, there is conservatively two trillion dollars in nature gas reserves sitting right under us. The problem with fracking is being able to find an economical and environmentally friendly way to dispose of the waste water. There are approximately thirteen treatment plants used to deal with the waste water that is accumulated by the massive fracking operations all over the state.
(TCO A) On March 1, 2010, Ruiz Corporation issued $800,000 of 8% nonconvertible bonds at 104, which are due on February 28, 2030. In addition, each $1,000 bond was issued with 25 detachable stock warrants, each of which entitled the bondholder to purchase for $50 one share of Ruiz common stock, par value $25. The bonds without the warrants would normally sell at 95. On March 1, 2010, the fair market value of Ruiz's common stock was $40 per share and the fair market value of the warrants was $2.00. What amount should Ruiz record on March 1, 2010 as paid-in capital from stock warrants?
It also have some very harmful effects on humans and nature. It creates large amount of pollution, destroys the nature and also increases the diseases in human societies. As in documentary about “The Ethics of Fracking” by Marleen troy PhD (Environmental Engineer), Bernard Prausak and Rabbi Mordechai Liebling.
For many decades, water pollution has been a major environmental issue. "Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies and occurs when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds" (Wales). Lake Huron, which is known as the third largest of the lakes by volume of Great Lakes, (Lakes Huron) water quality has been of major concern. Few major sources identified were faulty septic systems and agriculture. Some of the effects caused by the pollution included: disruption of aquatic life, elevated levels of nitrates and phosphates from polluted underground water, swimming prevention, and numerous outbreaks of Avian Botulism.
$24,000 increase D. $11,000 decrease 45. Hylow Corporation sells its product for $12 per unit. Next year, fixed expenses are expected to be $400,000 and variable expenses are expected to be $8 per unit. How many units must the company sell to generate net operating income of $80,000? A.
Another item pointed to pesticides, fertilizers and road salt as additional contributors to the pollution problem. And even further a New York Times article spoke about the algae blooms resulting from phosphate pollution. The lake has experienced a decline in its fish production attributed to the “dead zone” resulting from algae blooms. Further, the fish caught have ingested plastic and plastic the article argues attracts chemicals like bisphenol A (BPA) a contaminant said to affect the endocrine system. This
2013).Pharmaceutical companies sometimes place active chemicals and waste into groundwater sources, in which almost all of the groundwater may be untreated which most likely cause contamination. (Herber, 2002). Abstract: Increase in the emissions of carbon dioxide by burning fossil fuels is the largest cause of environmental down grading resulting not only in global warming but also causing acid rain which alters the pH balance of ground water. Water is a universal solvent; however, its dissolving properties are very sensitive to changes in temperature and pH. Global economic growth has, unfortunately,
As a result, many trucks have to travel to and fro the mining site to supply the water and other amenities causing dust pollution and soil erosion on the dirt roads. Chemicals used in the fracking process are able to sip through cracks in the rocks and the soil and contaminate any water sources they meet. This water finds its way into the community or cities. When consumed, these chemicals can lead to cancer, defects in newly-born babies and disorders in the nervous system. Large amounts of methane and other poisonous gases released into the air from the gas wells contribute to heavy air pollution and global warming.
