Purchasing Session Outline

Description

PowerPoint Prenetation - Part Eight of Greening Business - Purchasing policies within an organization can play a major part in an organization’s overall environmental impact. Purchasing decisions may range from the sourcing of raw materials for manufacturing through to purchasing of less environmentally harmful cleaning products for use in offices. Purchasing decisions have been traditionally made almost entirely on economic grounds, however, increasingly social, ethical and environmental factors are also being considered. Purchasing of more ‘environmentally friendly’ products also provides a growing market for these types of products, in time reducing costs.

Coastal systems: tsunami warning and alarms

Description

In the field with Simon Haslett, Professor of Physical Geography and Director of the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at the University of Wales, Newport, and Professor Jon Nott of James Cook University. Whilst Simon and Jon were in the field in Queensland, Jon received a phone call to do a radio interview about an earthquake and tsunami that had occurred in New Zealand the day before and generated a small tsunami that arrived along the southeast coast of Australia.

Alternative Energy in perspective

Description

Alternative energy sources are seen by many people as potential solutions to the many economic and environmental challenges posed by the current dominance of world energy supply by fossil and nucler fuels. Just how realistic are these hopes? This unit summarises the technical and geographic challenges posed by each alternative source. It is left to you to judge the feasiibility of imploementing these changes against the claims for 'alternative' solutions to global energy challenges that are regularly made.

Energy resources: An introduction to energy resources

Description

Energy resources are essential for any society, be it one dependent on subsistence farming or an industrialised country. There are many different sources of energy, some well-known such as coal or petroleum, others less so, such as tides or the heat inside the Earth. Is nuclear power a salvation or a nightmare? This unit provides background information to each resource, so that you can assess them for yourself.

Energy resources: Geothermal energy

Description

Energy from sources other than fossil and nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterise those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continually, whether or not we use it. This unit considers one of these alternative sources, geothermal energy derived from the interior heat of the Earth, and the potential for this alternative to supplant fossil and nuclear fuel use to power social needs fast enough to avoid the likelihood of future global warming and other kinds of pollution.

Energy resources: hydropower

Description

Hydroelectric energy is ultimately solar energy converted through evaporation of water, movement of air masses and precipitation to gravitational potential energy and then to the kinetic energy of water flowing down a slope. That energy was harnessed for centuries through the use of water wheels to drive mills, forges and textile works, before being supplanted by coal-fired steam energy. The unit considers hydropower as a potential source of useable energy.

Energy resources: tidal energy

Description

The rise and fall of ocean tides result from the combined gravitational pull on water by the Moon and, to a lesser extent, bu the Sun, which exerts a force on water directed towards the two astronomical bodies. These gravitational effects combine with centrifugalo forces that result from the Earth and the Moon orbiting each other to make the details of tidal changes complex. This unit considers the power of the ocean tides as a potential source of useable energy and whether or not they can ever make any significant contribution to global energy suppllies.

Environment: Following the flows

Description

What affects the atmospheric and ocean flows? This unit explores the mechanisms that are important; the most rapid carrier is the wind. The basic principle of global atmospheric circulation is simple: warm air rises and cold air sinks. How does this principle affect the atmosphere and flow of water in practical terms?
