    3127 words - 13 pages

    The bases of every market are the property rights of the individuals that participate in the market. Without property rights there would be no exchange and difficult to establish contract laws. Property rights were taken for granted for much of history and are now used to establish all sorts of theories, philosophies and regulation. Two excellent examples of this are the Libertarian political party and the Coase Theorem. As for the value of these two applications of private property it is important to evaluate the practicality of them. To understand both two separate historical

    Not until the spread of the Industrial Revolution in the late nineteenth century, has man possessed the ability to adversely alter, on a global scale, the geologic and climatic cycles that have existed for millennia. Planet earth, which man calls home, is approximately 5 billion years old. The science of paleontology tells us that man is a relative new comer to the planet. Modern man did not arrive on the scene until approximately 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. Developments in hunting, agriculture, literacy, and the sciences, have allowed man to thrive and inhabit nearly every corner of

    Air Pollution

    Introduction Air pollution is nothing new. Ever since the discovery of fire, less-than-desirable substances have been vented into the air. One of the first air-pollution regulations dates back to the fourteenth century, when King Edward I banned the burning of sea coal in lime kilns. U.S. air-pollution regulations have their roots in British Common Law. But regardless of those efforts, air pollution continues to be a serious local and world-wide problem. Pollution is the pressure within the air of one or more substances that are harmful to human health, welfare, animal or pl

This high level ozone plays a crucial role, protecting animals and plants from the sun’s harmful ultra violet rays, and stabilizing the earth's climate. This ozone layer is incredibly unstable, since it is constantly being formed and broken down through interactions with UV radiation. But, as it is so reactive the ozone layer can easily be broken down by pollutant gases rising from the earth. CFC's and nitrous oxide are thought to be particularly responsible for the breakdown of

    The ecosystem is a very fragile thing. What was once a subsistent primitive world where humans were a part of nature, has now become a world of consumption and exploitation of our natural environment (Benton 13). Somewhere along the lines, it seems that we have separated ourselves from nature and created this alternate human world, where nature is nothing more than a resource, with economic value for us to exploit. In contemporary times we are beginning to see the effects of this separation, and perhaps a glimpse into a devastating future. In his writing entitled ‘Environmental Degradation

    The global warming hypothesis originated in 1896 when Svante Arrhenius, a Swedish chemist, developed the theory that carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels would cause global temperatures to rise by trapping excess heat in the earth’s atmosphere. Arrhenius understood that the earth’s climate is heated by a process known as the greenhouse effect. While close to half the solar radiation reaching the earth’s surface is reflected back into space, the remainder is absorbed by land masses and oceans, warming the earth’s surface and atmosphere.

Manpower was replaced with the importation of contract laborers from India between 1845 and 1917, which boosted sugar production as well as the cocoa industry. The discovery of oil on Trinidad in 1910 added another important export. Independence was attained in 1962.
