Are We Running Out of Resources?
 
04:08
Prof. Steve Horwitz addresses the common belief that the world is running out of natural resources. Instead, there are economic reasons why we will never run out of many resources. In a free market system, prices signal scarcity. So as a resource becomes more scarce, it becomes more expensive, which incentivizes people to use less of it and develop new alternatives, or to find new reserves of that resource that were previously unknown or unprofitable. We have seen throughout history that the human mind's ability to innovate, coupled with a free market economic system, is an unlimited resource that can overcome the limitations we perceive with natural resources.

Follow us at: https://plus.google.com/+tutorvista/ Check us out at http://www.tutorvista.com/content/biology/biology-iv/natural-resources/natural-resources-types.php Types of Natural Resources Natural resources are naturally occurring resources in the environment that have not been disturbed by mankind. By resource is meant any physical entity, which has limited availability. These resources occur in their natural form. Few examples of natural resources are: •Air, wind and atmosphere •Plants (Flora) •Animals (Fauna) •Agronomy (the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed and fiber) •Wildlife •Forestry and Agroforestry •Coal and fossil fuels •Range and pasture •Soils •Water, oceans, lakes and rivers Something that people generally arent aware of, is that everything we use in everyday life are derived from natural resources, for example, milk which comes from cows - animals are a natural resource. We use water, food and vegetables that comes from plants, salt which is a mineral are some of the other natural resources. Wood that we get from tree is a natural resource. It can be used to build a house, make paper, burn in fireplaces and in stoves for cooking, etc. Man utilizes these resources in various ways. These resources are processed further so as to be made suitable for our needs. The table below is an example that shows in what way the resources have been utilized.

Water Resources

005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

The human impact on this Earth
 
05:35
Check out the website Care2.com! Just as a disclaimer, I made this video when I was 13. When I talked about Mother Earth being mad, I more so meant that part metaphorically. I didn't mean that disasters are a cause of human activity, I meant beyond that, of how we are treating our earth, and the limited time we will have left if we continue to do so - our own self destruction.  But looking back, this video is also a bit sadder than I had hoped - I wanted it to be factual through imagry, then inspiring at the end, as I think uplifting people is much more important. Anyways, thank you everyone for all the great responses to this video (: I can't tell you how honored I felt when I heard this was playing in classes at schools and colleges around the nation! Keep spreading the awareness. We all live in such a beautiful world, and humans really are beautiful souls with such great potential, we just have to reawaken to who we are, ridding ourselves of ignorance. The more truth we see, the more we can do to change our ways into more productive habits. And it really all does begin with caring. First about ourselves, then other people, then the world. Even though we cannot take on the responsibility of the entire earth, we can take personal responsibility; pledge to our Earth, and everything on it. LOVE, LIGHT, LIFE. HOPE AND HAPPINESS TO ALL!

Why Am I Vegan? Part 3: The Environmental Aspect
 
07:37
In part 3 of my series I give you an insight into the relation between our diet and our -one and only- planet earth. "We are in the midst of an ecological devastation. Raising animals for food is the single greatest human-caused source of destruction to our environment. It is the largest source of greenhouse gases, land use and degradation; the number one source of water pollution and rainforest deforestation. It's also a major contributor to air pollution, ocean dead zones, habitat loss and species extinction. And when we include all the resources that go into raising animals for food - the land, fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides, fossil fuels and fresh water - animal agribusiness is shockingly inefficient and a costly and wasteful use of our limited natural resources." ~yourdailyvegan At the end of the video I talk about what I personally think is the absolutely most important message behind veganism: it's not an "all or nothing" matter. There are so many baby steps we can all -vegans and non-vegans- take that would help us move in the right direction!

South Africa Water Distribution: Environmental Injustice
 
09:02
Water Distribution and Environmental Injustice in South Africa Georgia McIntyre and Oliver Hunt Summary: This video argues that the environmental injustices associated with water in South Africa stem from the political legacy of apartheid. South Africa is one of the most racially segregated nations, and water distribution favors wealthier white communities. The video gives background on apartheid and how even after its abolition, established institutions reinforce environmental racism. In an attempt to empower marginalized communities, the ANC worked to de-centralize the nation's political system after apartheid. Unfortunately, this caused a lack of political organization that negatively impacted local governments. Local governments were given autonomy over their municipal distribution systems, yet were unable to adequate supply water resources. This political dynamic gave incentive for multi-national corporations to come in a privatize South Africa's water. In several regions around the country, different MNCs have exploited water distribution to gain water revenue. These corporations are unconcerned with social and socio-economic justice and do recognize water as a human right. Using case studies, the video will elaborate on the various injustices that the black majority and poor communities incur from the privatization of water. For instance, one of these case studies describes how water cut-offs have taken people's humanity. Because water is so scarce under privatization, a community could not put out a fire for fear of running out of their monthly water allocation. The video will conclude with possible solutions for the future of South Africa's water. Video Bibliography online: https://docs.google.com/a/colgate.edu/file/d/0B64aAlUsJFZGQmVLYlVvSGFoRUk/edit
Foundations of environmental anthropology
 
42:32
In this lecture on the foundations of environmental anthropology, Dr. Eduardo Brondizio first highlights the modern era in world history as the great global acceleration, in which use of natural resources and economic development has increased exponentially. He traces the history of ideas to study the relationship between human culture and environmental constraints, starting with cultural ecology and moving through ecological anthropology, political ecology, ethnobiology, and historical and symbolic ecologies. He notes that these and other related theories and approaches all deal with complexity and connectivity, and that the temporal and spatial scope of change requires new frameworks for understanding. He ends with questions about the Anthropocene, and how anthropology and related disciplines are dealing with the epistemological and moral tensions inherent in current challenges facing humans and the environment.

Assessing palaeochannel resources in the light of future environmental change

Assessing palaeochannel resources in the light of future environmental change: a case study from the Trent Valley, UK David Knight, Samantha Stein, Steve Malone YORK ARCHAEOLOGICAL TRUST Palaeochannels are one of the most common features of valley floors in temperate alluvial landscapes, and their value as natural sediment traps containing proxy records of climate, vegetation history and land-use is well known within the archaeological and geomorphological communities. In the recent past, the most significant threats to these landforms have been associated with quarrying, but future climate change may bring new challenges, associated both with changing natural threshold conditions and with flood risk management. Mitigating and managing future threats to these important historic environment assets requires detailed knowledge of their extent and character. This paper outlines a multi-staged approach to evaluating the palaeochannel resource in the Nottinghamshire sector of the middle and lower Trent Valley, UK. The first stage of the project involved the mapping of features from a variety of remote-sensed imagery, including standard aerial photography, lidar and multispectral data, and assessing the efficacy of each methodology. However, producing a landform resource map is simply the first stage of this project, and this presentation will also explore future stages, including fieldwork strategies for assessing the chronology and preservation potential of these landforms at the macroscale and likely future threats associated with climate change. Whilst such research is important for heritage management, this approach can benefit the wider community. In particular, palaeochannels are key assets for nature conservation, and can play a key role in flood management strategies as a part of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems.

What is SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT? What does SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT mean? SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT meaning - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT definition - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sustainable development is a process for meeting human development goals while sustaining the ability of natural systems to continue to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depends. While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived most strongly from the 1987 Brundtland Report, it is rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environmental concerns. As the concept developed, it has shifted to focus more on economic development, social development and environmental protection. Sustainable development is the organizing principle for sustaining finite resources necessary to provide for the needs of future generations of life on the planet. It is a process that envisions a desirable future state for human societies in which living conditions and resource-use continue to meet human needs without undermining the "integrity, stability and beauty" of natural biotic systems. Sustainability can be defined as the practice of maintaining processes of productivity indefinitely—natural or human made—by replacing resources used with resources of equal or greater value without degrading or endangering natural biotic systems. Sustainable development ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the social, political, and economic challenges faced by humanity. Sustainability science is the study of the concepts of sustainable development and environmental science. There is an additional focus on the present generations' responsibility to regenerate, maintain and improve planetary resources for use by future generations. Sustainable development has its roots in ideas about sustainable forest management which were developed in Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In response to a growing awareness of the depletion of timber resources in England, John Evelyn argued that "sowing and planting of trees had to be regarded as a national duty of every landowner, in order to stop the destructive over-exploitation of natural resources" in his 1662 essay Sylva. In 1713 Hans Carl von Carlowitz, a senior mining administrator in the service of Elector Frederick Augustus I of Saxony published Sylvicultura oeconomica, a 400-page work on forestry. Building upon the ideas of Evelyn and French minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert, von Carlowitz developed the concept of managing forests for sustained yield. His work influenced others, including Alexander von Humboldt and Georg Ludwig Hartig, eventually leading to the development of a science of forestry. This in turn influenced people like Gifford Pinchot, first head of the US Forest Service, whose approach to forest management was driven by the idea of wise use of resources, and Aldo Leopold whose land ethic was influential in the development of the environmental movement in the 1960s. Following the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in 1962, the developing environmental movement drew attention to the relationship between economic growth and development and environmental degradation. Kenneth E. Boulding in his influential 1966 essay The Economics of the Coming Spaceship Earth identified the need for the economic system to fit itself to the ecological system with its limited pools of resources. One of the first uses of the term sustainable in the contemporary sense was by the Club of Rome in 1972 in its classic report on the Limits to Growth, written by a group of scientists led by Dennis and Donella Meadows of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Describing the desirable "state of global equilibrium", the authors wrote: "We are searching for a model output that represents a world system that is sustainable without sudden and uncontrolled collapse and capable of satisfying the basic material requirements of all of its people."

Today China has over 300 million middle class consumers -- but that number is expected to grow to more than 800 million by 2025. These changes will put unprecedented pressure on our Earth's limited natural resources. In this thought-provoking presentation, Peggy Liu, co-founder of the Shanghai-based nonprofit organization JUCCCE and a Time magazine Hero for the Environment, explores efforts she's leading to re-imagine prosperity and reshape consumerism in China by building a new "China Dream" that preserves resources such as energy, food, land and water for future generations. She also discusses how myth-creation, mass media and collaboration will be keys to transforming lifestyles in China, and around the world.
