  1. Evolution and Implementation of International Environmental Law

    Third generation rights were first considered and discussed in the Stockholm Principles and include most importantly the right to the healthy environment and the right to the development (Turgut 2007). Another serious issue that is raised by the concepts of safe environment is the idea of sustainable development to be adopted by the states. Sustainable development is identified as the wise use of existing resources and progression of development without jeopardizing the future development of succeeding geenrations (Stec 2010; Stec and Casey Lefkowitz 2000; Turgut 2007).

  2. The Environment and Politics

    Agency for International Development suggested (The Golf War, dir. Jen Schradie). This poses a conflict because there exists two different ways to handle the same land. To the U.S. Agency, the farmland and area around it is something that can be used for tourism - a way of getting money; whereas farmers and citizens are concerned about the destruction of the land and what they currently use it for - crops, for example. If the land is to be used for tourism, the citizens (especially farmers)

  3. The Analysis and Critique of Animal Factories

    First, Mason and Singer discuss many of the problems that have grown from the transition to animal factories. One of the first topics covered in their book is the extreme change that agriculture has seen since animal factories have grown in number. Mason and Singer state that big farms are getting bigger, while the number of farms is declining. This means that the very few, but largest agribusiness companies have taken control of the market. According to the two authors, the increasingly capital-intensive industry has caused very few firms to gain control of the market. This statement is entirely true and is supported by several statistics and scientific findings.

  4. Report on a Contaminated Land Site

    This will be achieved by finding the most appropriate method do breaking the significant pollution linkage (figure 1). This may be done by removing the contaminant or pathway. Since the proposed land use is already determined the receptor cannot be removed. In this instance the most sensitive receptor is likely to be children since it is proposed to redevelop the site for recreational purposes. Leachability tests show that a high proportion of the cyanide and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compounds present in the samples taken are adversely affecting passing waters.

    From the two concepts listed above it will become apparent if whether the EU falls into the following two categories.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Evaluate the rationale for green direct action and, using empirical examples, assess its effectiveness.

    "In conclusion, this essay has shown that both the ways in which green direct action groups/individuals perceive direct action to be an effective and necessary strategy, and the ways in which direct action actually can be an efficient course of action are varied and wide-ranging. It is hard to generalise or pinpoint any one particular reason, which explains why, and how direct action is perceived to be a rationale strategy to pursue. However, what I confidently believe can be asserted (in spite of all the calculation difficulties), is that champions of direct action were right to perceive that direct action is a strategy which can be used to effectively accomplish green aims. 1"
