Title: Water Restrictions Block billing

Total Pages: 4 Words: 1408 References: 5 Citation Style: APA Document Type: Essay

Essay Instructions: It is to be a persuasive research paper. My topic is related to our local water restrictions and block billing that the city council designed. The block billing was averaged from September 06 - Feb 07, the time when consumption is lower. The latest twist in this case is that last week we were put on a stage 4 alert regarding water usage. I need to site a minimum of 4 sources and it needs to be between 1200-1800 words. Below is a list of references I had found. I don't need to use those specific ones but it will give more direction as to where to find material about our local requirements. I also was using another city for comparison, Santa Fe New Mexico. I am against the block billing especially since the charges are not based on real normal use, but for water conservation.

? Relationship to people, prosperity and the planet
? Relevance and significance to developing or developed world
? Implementation of the project as an educational tool

I have started the Background but it is not complete (see below) - needs to specifically address the previous bullets. I have some references already but will need more. I need assistance developing the project which is the development and initiation of innovative and interactive educational workshops for inhabitants of the Medina River Watershed (Bexar & Medina County TX) which will address non point source pollution in urban and agricultural environments; water conservation at home and on the farm and establishment of extensive collaboration between the local townships, farmers, ranchers, general public and school districts. It needs to outline purpose, scope, data to be used and how will results be measured.



Background and Problem Definition
(What is your project and why is it relevant?)
? Relationship to people, prosperity and the planet
? Relevance and significance to developing or developed world
? Implementation of the project as an educational tool

Purpose, Objectives, Scope
(How will your project resolve the problem you defined?) (Include the five sustainability questions here.)
(1) What is your proposed technical challenge to sustainability? Describe it in some detail, cite sources used.
(2) What innovative design approach (with technical merit) will be used to address the challenge?
(3) How will the proposed challenge address sustainability, specifically to people, prosperity, and the planet?

Essay Instructions: These are forum discussions that I have run out of time to complete due to work schedule. I have up to the 26th of November to complete east coast time. I will attach text resources for some of the topics to reference to. If you need anything else please let me know. It may take a day or two to get back with you because of the time zone for which I work in(overseas).

Part I: Questions
Discuss water conservation and water supply by responding to the questions below in your initial forum post of a minimum of 250 words due by Thursday.

Water Conservation Water conservation is key to reaching a sustainable water balance. Please respond to these questions:

What is your perspective on the availability and use of water in your area? (?Your perspective on water differs whether you live near the Great Lakes, in the arid west, or by the coast.?(McCarthy, 2009)
Outline a brief water conservation plan for your own daily use. How will these changes affect your personal life? What impact will it have on your local water supply?

Water Supply In order to supply water to humans certain technologies must be utilized. Pick one of the following water supply solutions that you think should be pursued and describe the pros and cons of the solution and why you chose it. Use reference sources in your research and discussion.

Reclaimed/ Recycled Water

Dams and diversions
Part II: Participation:
Respond to at least two (preferably more) classmates' or instructor posts prior to Sunday. Your follow-up posts should add additional insight to your classmates? opinions and can challenge their opinions. Check back throughout the week to respond to ideas and comments.

In Berg, et al. (2011) Chapter 14, genetic engineering is described. Farmers, animal breeders, and scientists have been making genetic selections for desirable characteristics in farm plants and animals for centuries using traditional breeding methods. Genetic engineering has the potential to accomplish this in a fraction of the time. However, the production of genetically modified plants and farm animals using the new techniques in molecular biology is controversial. Furthermore, the development of genetic engineering technology opens possibility of cloning human body parts or even individuals. This U.S. government website ( contains a cloning fact sheet, and links to other interesting information and news regarding genetic engineering and cloning.

Part I. Questions:
After reviewing your text, the website on cloning technology, and any other credible reference sources, explain your opinion of two or more of the following questions in a 250 minimum response no later than Thursday:
Is genetic engineering fundamentally different than traditional plant and livestock breeding? Does that matter?

What is your opinion on creating, growing, and consuming genetically modified plants (GMOs)?
What is your opinion about using genetic engineering to develop "better" farm animals?
Can genetic technology offer a solution to world food shortages (an environmental problem)?

Optional: Often with a discussion of genetic technology other scientific and medical applications are brought up. If you would like you may also include your opinion about (A) using genetic engineering to cure human diseases (gene mapping and pharmaceutical development) and (B) using genetic engineering to clone human body cells, tissues, organs, limbs (therapeutic cloning).

There are not right or wrong answers, what is important for our discussion is how you explain your position

Part I. Questions:
Environmental topics are in the news every day. Focus, both in our classroom and the media, is often on the major environmental problems. Too often the positive success stories go unnoticed.

Choose a success story related to the environment utilizing at least one reference source. Write and post a 250 word minimum discussion of the success story prior to Thursday. Include these areas in your discussion in sufficient detail:
Background to the success story
Summary of the success
Application of the success to other environmental issues or problems

F#3 Constitution Day

Part I: Questions

The preamble of the US Constitution directs the Federal Government to "promote the general welfare"...."secure the blessings of liberty" ..and protect "ourselves and our posterity". When thinking about our obligation to protect the environment, can a case be made that we are constitutionally bound to do so based on the quotes I gave you? What do you think? If so, how does that play into our responsibility to conserve and lessen our ecological footprint? If not, why not?
