The problem of air pollution in the United States and the solution policies

Academic Paper from the year 2015 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Environmental Policy, Kenyatta University, language: English, abstract: This paper will talk about the issue of air pollution in the United States today. I will first discuss the extent of air pollution problem in the United States and provide the statics to show the weightiness of this problem. Then I will explain the consequences of air pollution to us and our future generations. In response to the abovementioned areas, there are three government policy solutions to the problems; The Clean Air Act 1990, the air pollution control act of 1955 and the Air Quality Act of 1967. I will explain each solution and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each solution; and of the three solutions, I will discuss which is the most effective as well as my personal observations on the problem of air pollution in the United States.

100  Clean  Renewable Energy and Storage for Everything

Numerous laws – including the Green New Deal – have been proposed or passed in cities, states, and countries to transition from fossil fuels to 100% clean, renewable energy in order to address climate change, air pollution, and energy insecurity. This textbook lays out the science, technology, economics, policy, and social aspects of such transitions. It discusses the renewable electricity and heat generating technologies needed; the electricity, heat, cold, and hydrogen storage technologies required; how to keep the electric power grid stable; and how to address non-energy sources of emissions. It discusses the history of the 100% Movement, which evolved from a collaboration among scientists, cultural leaders, business people, and community leaders. Finally, it discusses current progress in transitioning to 100% renewables, and the new policies needed to complete the transition. Online course supplements include lecture slides, answers to the end-of-chapter student exercises, and a list of extra resources.

Living in the Anthropocene

Explores the causes and implications of the Anthropocene, or Age of Humans, from multiple points of view including anthropological, scientific, social, artistic, and economic. Although we arrived only recently in Earth's timeline, humans are driving major changes to the planet's ecosystems. Even now, the basic requirements for human life--air, water, shelter, food, nature, and culture--are rapidly transforming the planet as billions of people compete for resources. These changes have become so noticeable on a global scale that scientists believe we are living in a new chapter in Earth's story: the Anthropocene, or Age of Humans. Living in the Anthropocene: Earth in the Age of Humans is a vital look at this era. The book contextualizes the Anthropocene by presenting paleontological, historical, and contemporary views of various human effects on Earth. It discusses environmental and biological systems that have been changed and affected; the causes of the Anthropocene, such as agricultural spread, pollution, and urbanization; how societies are responding and adapting to these changes; how these changes have been represented in art, film, television, and literature; and finally, offers a look toward the future of our environment and our own lives.
