Recycling our waste is a good way of reducing our carbon footprint. Most packaging can be recycled and used again. This means that new card and paper is not used, reducing pollution from factories making the packaging. We can recycle glass and metal containers such as drinking bottles.
We can recycle rainwater by collecting it on our roofs and using it for washing clothes, showers, baths and for flushing toilets. | | |
TRANSPORT
Cars, and planes are responsible for much of the carbon we ‘pump’ into the atmosphere and environment. If we reduce the journeys we make by cars and planes our carbon footprint will also be reduced. This is also the case if we take public transport rather than using our private cars. Cycling and walking is also a healthy option for ourselves and the environment. We could also use environmentally friendly fuels such as hydrogen in our cars. | | |
HOLIDAYS AT HOME
If we stayed in this country for our annual holiday instead of flying abroad our carbon footprint would be reduced. Aeroplanes produce a large amount of pollution, especially carbon which damages the environment and contributes to global warming. | |

BIO FUELS
Bio fuels are fuels that are produced by growing crops that can be processes to give us fuel that is more environmentally friendly than fossil fuels. Sugar cane is used to produce ethanol which can be used to power cars and yet is less polluting than petrol or diesel. Animal waste can be used to produce methane gas which can be used to power vehicles. There are many more bio fuels which are alternatives to oil, petrol and diesel. Using these fuels in place of fossil fuels would help reduce our carbon footprint. | | |

Anti Communism

...Anticommunism and McCarthyism Victor Cenales HIS/145 January 14, 2012 Timothy Heyburn Anticommunism and McCarthyism During the late 1940s and early 1950s, a struggle broke out between the Unite States and the Soviet Union in what was known as the Cold War. The west was concerned with anti-Communism becoming a part of its domestic politics. It had become an obsession of most conservative politicians to expose what they call Communist subversion and at the same time dealt a blow to the liberal causes. The interest of the Soviet Union was in the control of strategic interest. In addition the Soviet Union was determined to create a secure sphere for itself in Central and Eastern Europe as protection against possible future aggression from the West (Brinkley Ch. 29). These different views were the bases for the Cold War. Not only did the cold war have international consequences but also create a division within the United States. Since Communism was a major concern, the spread of anti-Communism was introduced as a way to protect the fundamental way Americans lived. In addition anti-Communism gave birth to McCarthyism. I will discuss the differences between anticommunism and McCarthyism, the perspective from which the media covered anticommunism and McCarthyism, how the American foreign policy decisions were affected or impacted by anticommunism and finally how Americans’ lives changed because of the Red Scare. To gain a clear understanding of...

Anti Procrestination

...Serge Arnaud Amangoua August 22, 2013 Short Essay 1 Topic : What helps you to procrastinate and what can you do when you are faced with these issues? The frequent thinking I have about work I should get done is "Why do I keep procrastinating when I know it causes me so much anxiety?" I usually know what I need to do, but I don't do it, or I wait until the last minute. And, time and again, the pattern repeats itself. I feel caught, trapped in a vortex of anxiety, stress, and procrastination. After self-criticism, I think the most common factor which helps me to procrastinate is because I'm disorganized, and I want to do everything at the same time in the last minute. The answer of this question warned me to take action and step up strategies that I can apply in my life to face these issues. So from there to face these issues , I write down my goal and give myself a deadline. Because a goal without a deadline can put me off. Visualize the future I want. I Imagine the emotions I will feel. Picture myself in a favorite place celebrating what I’ve accomplished.I Imagine those who love me most celebrating my success. And I act bravely daily. Starting today.I Build momentum because it is crucial as I start out. So I commit to stepping out of my comfort zone at least once per day. Every I keep......

Anti Federalism

...Not ratifying the constitution would have been the better choice. Having a federal system where the sates are supreme makes is more beneficial to the people; having a strong central government however, leaves room for domination and control. The federalist supported the constitution and wanted a strong central government. As an anti-federalist the main focus of interest is the protecting the people's rights and limiting government control. Federalist supported the constitution, and wanted immediate ratification. They favored limiting state power, and believed that a strong central government was needed to protect the country. The Federalist's response to the anti-Federalist claim that a Bill of Rights should be introduced was that it would be dangerous. If a right was not listed, what was stopping the government from violating that law? The Federalist figured it would be best if no specific law was listed. Anti-Federalists did not want to ratify the constitution. Most Anti-Federalists believed that a somewhat stronger central government was needed, but for the most part favored a federal system where the states were supreme. Anti-Federalists did not want to ratify the constitution because there was no bill of rights, they wanted the rights of the people to be documented, and limit government power to some degree. The anti-federalist also believed that congress and the executive branch held too much power, and they feared that people of wealth would have the opportunity...

Anti Bullying Essay

... The Need for Enhanced Anti-Bullying Laws and School Programs Lisa Aparicio Saint Joseph’s College The Need for Enhanced Anti-Bullying Laws and School Programs Bullying was traditionally considered rites of passage, something all children and youth must go through. This is a myth. In today’s violent growing society, bullying has been responsible for several acts of non-punishable crimes. The lack of attention to implementing and enforcing anti-bullying state laws, and funding anti-bullying school programs, is only making this problem worse. There is not enough being done to help prevent bullying, and the reason behind this is merely because, not enough is being enforced by our government and schools systems. There are those who believe that enforcing and creating anti-bullying laws are somewhat of a psychological Greek tragedy. There are those who believe that “When we advocate for laws against bullying, we declare the failure of psychology to solve the problem” (Kalman, 2010). They fail to realize that the lives of victims can’t be relied on the “slight chance” of psychology solving the problem. The truth of the matter is, there are people committing suicide and/or thinking about it, because of day to day bullying. It’s going to take more than just trusting psychology to do its magic. Anti-bullying laws have been claimed to be placed in almost every state in the U.S. However, after going through several of the state laws shown in the State School...

Anti-Globalization

...Anti- globalization The global movement is broadly critical of the policies of economic neoliberalism, or “corporate globalization,” that has guided international trade and development since the closing decades of the 20th century. Varied communities organizing against the local and national consequences of neoliberal policies, especially in the global South, connect their actions with this wider effort. * Industries have no respect for the environment. Large companies install their factories in third world countries, where environment legislation is more lax or almost nonexistent, they don’t only endangered, irreversibly, the biodiversity of the planet but also the native populations. * Massive inflows of foreign investment in developing countries cannot be effectively absorbed, especially in regard to environmental protection and workers' rights. This is because developing countries standards and enforcement mechanisms are not as well established. * Workers are seen as having their traditional lives irreversibly disrupted by globalization and/or being treated less favorably than the same multinationals would treat those in developed countries. In this instance, it is often recognized that local political sovereignty may not be enough; global rules are needed to ensure that multinationals can't exploit workers. * Countries' individual cultures are becoming overpowered by Americanisation. Several of the largest US brands (McDonald's and Starbucks) face...

They help by preventing withdrawal symptoms by nicotine dependence. If a patient is motivated with the help of a physician, and one of these medications, he may able to quit. Role of society and government: Pakistan Government gets 0.7 % of its GNP from tobacco taxation. This amount is close to the amount spent on health care. Being a big source of revenue, there is a lack of desire to discourage tobacco use. Society in general is not fully aware of smoking/tobacco related hazards. There is a dire need of aggressive anti-smoking awareness campaign, involving civil society, media, business community, school, college and university students. Government needs to strictly implement already exciting anti-smoking laws which prohibit smoking in public places.  ...

Anti-Dumping

...Effects of Anti-dumping Measures A country that is exposed to dumping will benefit from the lower prices. The consumers of the importing country will have a larger consumer surplus since they have access to a larger supply of goods to a lower price. These consumer benefits will be lost when the importing country imposes an antidumping measure on the low-price imports. When the duties are levied on the imports the products will have the same price-level in both domestic and foreign market. When the price is increased in the foreign market the supply will decrease and the producers have to comply with an inefficient low level of output. The consumers in the importing country have to pay a higher price for the products and have less consumer surplus. Other customers will not pay the higher price and are driven out of the market, which leads to a dead-weight social cost (Howse & Trebilcock, 1995). Imposing an anti-dumping measure will cause all the consumers and industrial user benefits from dumping to disappear. The importing country will drive the dumped products out of the market if the anti-dumping duties are high enough, or the product might remain in the market at higher prices. If the dumped products leave the market, the domestic firms are able to raise their prices due to lesser competition. If an anti-dumping measure is introduced in a market where the domestic industry is composed of only one producer, it might lead to that producer charging...

Anti Guncontrol

...Anti Gun Control Do you want to be defenseless when an armed criminal breaks into your house and you can’t fight back because you don’t have any firearms in your home? Don’t you want to protect your family and yourself incase of a dilemma such as this? Well our country The United States of America is threatening to almost strip us of our American right to bear arms. Over the past 200 years the need for weapons, especially firearms for the single purpose of self defense from nature has drastically reduced. However, the gun has become the face of America for a while now and more than half want to keep it that way ensuring the safety they have to protect themselves and their family. First of all, if America’s government wants to take away the guns of our fellow citizens to “benefit” us, they’re wrong. Taking away the guns of American people will just render everyone of us defenseless to fight off intruders in our own household. In every country criminals always find a way to obtain illegal firearms for the tyrannical use of killing and the gaining of power. With that being said, the crime rate wouldn’t go down if the Government took away our guns but would flourish terribly because the criminals would know that we as a nation of Strong Americans were finally vulnerable to whatever criminal who carried a firearm. Secondly, citizens having guns is a good thing. Even though 54% of America may disagree, 58% need the safety that their guns bring them. Already half...

Anti-Federalist

...By: Normandie Lovince I am a supporter of the anti-federalist party. The anti-federalist took some of the ideas that the federalist had into consideration. Instead of abolishing or ignoring these ideas, they wanted to improve them. The anti-federalist and the federalist share two very opposing views. As you read this essay, you will gradually start to see just how my ideas are being supported as to why I've chosen to become an anti-federalist. The anti-federalist party was the first out of two political parties of the U.S. This party was led by Henry, George Mason and Samuel Adams alongside Richard Henry Lee who wanted the president and the senate to have the entire executive and 2/3 of the legislative power. As an anti-federalist, I believe that the constitution should not be ratified. I feel like the best way, that the U.S citizens should be protected is by being kept safe from the Government and the bill of rights will do that because of the freedom and liberty that it gives us. "The greatest importance for Freemen to retain themselves are the liberties given to us in the bill of rights", which is why it's so important that we'd add it to the constitution. In order to get the bill of rights to be in the constitution we'd need to sacrifice part of our natural rights, for the good of others around us. The anti-federalist believed that the constitution should have a bill of rights. The Anti-federalist opposed the constitution, while the federalist themselves...

Anti-Federalists

...2.03 The Anti-federalists My position as a federalist is to ratificate the constitution while also creating a strong central government by separation of both of the powers combined. All the federalists were always strong believers in the constitution, believing that this ratification was the only way they were all able to achieve a fair society where all people can all have their rights to liberty, life and the pursuit of happiness, while also wanting to help shape future analysis of the Constitution for the better and in beneficial ways. By them being able to build a sufficient government with the foundation of the basis of popular sovereignty, without the need of sacrificing any sovereignty of the varied states fairness of the new government, it can be secured and work as it should. The rich would be happy in this case, because they would feel like the new Constitution was benefcial on their part, because the fact that rich's votes would earn much more value than the less fortunate in the states like what they wanted to achieve. They can possibly keep the potential of tyranny from becoming something dangerous to their people and they know that safeguards they have with the government will keep it from overpowering. The constitution should be ratified as a Federalist because the nation might of never survived without the constitution by their side leading them and a stronger government was necessary at this very point in desperate time. The federalists...
