There are many solutions to slowing or stopping the effects of global warming including planting trees, cutting carbon dioxide emissions, and using alternative fuels....
This causes the earth to warm which keeps the earth from becoming a ball of frozen ice, but excess carbon dioxide causes global warming, which will affect the environment.
Global warming is a natural process, but because of increase in certain activities this process is taking a faster and more dangerous route creating global problems.
(This general research can be accomplished using Internet resources, print resources, or both.) Once some background knowledge has been gained, students can select a particular issue to focus on and develop thesis statements for their essays.
You then do the same for the second essay question, choosing six different items.
The master lists of issues, regions, and identifications from which these six lists will be drawn are given below.
• The issues terms are from the SLC and from current events.
• The regions are generic geographic designations for which you will need to supply specific cultures and eras as examples for your essay.
The company has faced international criticism on how they operate their facilities. For instance, there have been reports of the company using a questionable water supply for their beverages. The company claims to use processes environmentally-friendly while environmentalists say otherwise. Some countries have issues with how much water is being used. There are areas dealing with drought and they feel the water supply could be put to better usage. Others think the water used to make beverages is not safe to drink. Related controversies seem to pop up in multiple areas around the world with focus groups and grassroots organizations boycotting the company because of their beliefs.
Nowadays, most if not all countries follow the international policy issued by the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) (Forster)....
While some people consider global warming to be the most pressing environmental problem which we have at the moment, others believe that deforestation has a more devastating impact on our world.
What are the implications of crosscultural interactions in history for the future of humanity?
To answer each essay question, you will be required to choose six items and connect them: two drawn from the issues list, two from the regions list, and two from the identifications list.
Coca Cola challenges in today’s global business environment vary at different levels. The company is known for providing beverage products people of all ages have enjoyed for decades. Yet, as Coca Cola continues to maintain a strong presence in the market place, the company has faced criticism in how they produce their products and negative health impact. The company has made some changes to address related concerns. Business analysts and consumers each have their own issues with how the company views business ethics inside and outside of the organization.

Investigate major global issues
Examine the culture of an assigned country
At the dawn of the 21st century the United Nations created a set of very ambitious development goals. These goals,
among others, were aimed at the eradication of poverty and hunger, the improvement of health through the combat
of disease, and to ensure environmental sustainability. As was pointed out at the beginning of this course, there is a
link among these issues, and that is population growth. Read this article: Overpopulation could be people, planet
problem. One major concern raised in the article is how increased population growth threatens our natural resources
and one of the main concerns is water. Access and competition for clean water is already an issue for many parts of
the world and in the future could potentially become an even more significant threat to human health and survival.
In addition to the issue of overpopulation, there is one of global crime, including illegal drug distribution and usage,
cyber crime and piracy, stolen art and antiquities, smuggling of migrants, slavery and human trafficking, money
laundering, trade in endangered animals and plants and even human organs. These activities have proliferated at a
more rapid pace as a result of the rapid growth of globalization. As our borders become more porous, these issues
become more intertwined. While some countries see these issues as serious, others do not because of different
cultural attitudes and beliefs.
Finally, the spread of disease has become an equally serious global problem. Today more than 40 million people
live with HIV, and more than 3 million die per year (Osterbolm 2005 ). These diseases are entangled with many of
the other issues we have been studying throughout this course. Conflict makes a population even more vulnerable to
disease. And of course, infectious disease is also linked strongly with poverty. Flooding due to deforestation leads to
cholera and other water-borne diseases. All of these factors and their interaction are tremendously important to
consider in the context of increasing globalization of the world.

Answer the following questions: 2.
How has the Internet brought awareness of environmental issues to people around the world? a.
Development and environmental stability often seem to be at odds. What is the social price of
valuing one more than the other?
Americans have long valued capitalism, and much of the prosperity of the West can be traced to
free enterprise. How do the goals of business conflict with those of global human and
environmental health? How can the latter goals be good for business? An example would be where
Mars candy, in a nod to “improving health and nutrition,” will stop selling chocolate candy in
portions greater than 250 calories.
Is globalization a health problem? How has globalization improved human health? How does
overpopulation impact globalization and human health issues?
