The climate system is a complex, interactive system consisting of the atmosphere, land surface, snow and ice, oceans and other bodies of water, and living things. Climate is usually described in terms of the mean and variability of temperature, precipitation and wind over a period of time, ranging from months to millions of years (the classical period is 30 years)…

Introduction

Solar radiation powers the climate system. Here we are trying to explain the factors, which are affecting our climate change, and how the human activities are affecting the climate mostly in negative way. Further we will try to understand how the global warming the most visible aspect of climate change affects our whole climate system including humans worldwide. Finally we will discuss the ill effects of these climatic changes on human health as a whole. Apart from environmental perspective we would discuss this phenomenon on the basis of social and economical development and how we can manage these changes effectively and equitably.
Introduction: There can be no clearer illustration of the need for human beings to act globally than the issues raised by the impact of human activity on our atmosphere. That we all share the same planet came to our attention in a particularly pressing way in the 1970's when scientists discovered that the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's) threatens the ozone layer shielding the surface of our planet from the full force of the Sun 's ultraviolet radiation. Damage to that protective shield would cause cancer rates to rise sharply and could have other effects, for example, on the growth of algae. ...

Former U.S. vice president and Senator Al Gore (1992) relates how his former college professor, Roger Revelle, initiated sampling and research on the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere in 1958. Revelle showed in 1960 that the increase in the level of CO2 in the atmosphere contributes to the Greenhouse effect. These series of studies by Revelle sparked awareness among people about the dangers of…
CHANGE MANAGEMENT (CASE STUDY)
Organizations can be transformed by creating a new system in a new place with new personnel, or by renewing the old system in the same place with the same personnel. Critics admit that when change is conducted by taking the "renewal" alternative, it usually entails the positioning of a new top manager or top managerial team. In business organizations, Ford, like many other firms, created separate…

Materials engineering is a popular field, as it tries to discover new materials of doing the ordinary things so as to minimize cost and resource. One of the discoveries in material engineering is plastic. It is used for many of our household products such as eating utensils, chairs and even cabinets. Cheap and light as it may seem, plastic has large costs especially to our environment. There are…
