The Effects of Green House Gases
Methane, water vapour, nitrous oxide and ozone are the green houses
gases, which exist in the earth’s atmosphere. They absorb thermal
radiations that are breathed out by the earth’s surface and reflect it
back to the earth, thereby serving as a blanket preventing the earth
from heat loss and keeping temperatures constant and perfect for animals
to live, and plants to grow.
For years now, rising temperatures have been a particularly hot topic

6.2 Authority and the variety of information sources

Technology has massively increased the number and variety of news sources that we have access to. We still have printed books, magazines and newspapers, while digital techniques have increased the number of broadcast radio and TV channels that we can get. On the Web we have access to online versions of many of these. This allows us access to media that previously would have been inaccessible.

With traditional news sources such as these, we have some understanding of the authority that t

Earth Exploration Toolbook Chapter: When is Dinner Served? Predicting the Spring Phytoplankton Bloom
In this activity, users learn about the variables that influence the abundance of phytoplankton, the microscopic plants that form the base of the marine food chain. Users apply this knowledge to make predictions about the timing of the spring phytoplankton bloom in the Gulf of Maine. They obtain and graph data from buoy monitoring stations and interpret them to make their predictions. They check their predictions by examining chlorophyll concentration data at each buoy. Users also compare their

Health inequalities and the welfare state: perspectives from social epidemiology
It might be assumed that welfare states that have done so much to reduce inequality of opportunity have also reduced inequality of health outcomes. While great advances have been seen in reducing the rates of many diseases in welfare states, disparities in health have not been eliminated. Is it the case that lowering risks overall will leave disparities that cannot be remediated, and that such efforts are at the point of diminishing returns? The evidence suggests that this is not true. Instead t
