What are the effects of global warming and initiatives taken by Wales and Iceland to reduce these effects?
warming in both Iceland and Wales, and then comparing how efficient Iceland and Wales are at tackling the problem and fortifying themselves from the problem. This investigation will be using statistics and primary resources to come up with a balanced argument, by making impartial judgements and using the information to draw a conclusion for possible solutions that Wales can follow to reduce our countries carbon footprint. In order to effectively compare both countries respectively, we will compare both micro-generation initiatives, governmental initiatives, and review the level of CO2 present in both countries.

Around the globe scientists and organisations have attempted to develop method of detecting earthquakes so that maximum damage can be prevented. Currently, around the globe seismometers, sea walls and building modeling are used to detect earthquakes through the readings of seismic waves. This scientific solution has potential to minimise damage from earthquakes and tsunamis around the globe if implemented correctly and its negatives minimized. The Application of Science To Detect Earthquakes and Consequently Prevent Damage-Seismometers Earthquakes can be detected by measuring the frequency of the seismic waves in a particular area using a scientific device such as a seismometer.

Other natural processes also allow for droughts. An example is the El Niño which causes droughts throughout Australia2.El Niño is a disruption in the atmospheric-ocean system in the tropical Pacific. During El Niño the trade winds flow east towards South America due to the top of the Pacific Ocean being covered in warm water. This causes a shift from a low pressure system that Australia has on a normal year to a high pressure system. The nature of the high pressure system, as mentioned earlier, is descending, warm, and dry air, meaning Australia becomes more susceptible to drought.

Economic restructuring of Hong Kong To begin with economic restructuring, began in 1970s, the production costs and land prices were increasing quickly and were very expensive and because of this, industrialists began to move their factories to China for lower production costs and higher profits. However, this move decreased the number of manufacturing job opportunities and increased the unemployment rate and gradually led to the economic transformation in 1980s, as there were few factories left in Hong Kong, Hong Kong started to transform from an industrial-based economy to a service and knowledge-based economy.

It is vital for consumers in these developed nations to have access to any type of produce at any time of the year. Now more than ever, there is mounting pressure on the job of many developing nations to support the growing demand of seasonal food products and many have to adapt to environmental limitations to ensure that their produce meets the growing global demand of off seasonal produce. Many developing nations, of which act as the basis for crop production for the food superhighway, have had to find more and more sustainable farming methods over the past several years to just keep up with this global demand in farm produce.

Fieldwork Question: Which are more effective in promoting vehicular traffic flow in Nairobi: roundabouts or unregulated intersections?
A person who works in the city centre coming from outside of Nairobi, therefore, has a very long trip to work, which is mostly spent sitting in their car, wishing they had woken up a little earlier to escape the mess. Nairobi?s poorly designed infrastructure and lack of cooperation between politicians, largely because of corruption, only adds to the chaos. Drawn from the syllabus section: Urban Environments, the field study compares various measures of congestion at two types of intersections, which are common in Nairobi, roundabouts and unregulated intersections, in order to establish their effectiveness.
