In this video Paul Andersen explains how the resources required for survival come from the Earth. The resources are not evenly distributed on the planet and neither are the humans. According to the NGSS we need to limit the use of nonrenewable resources (like oil and coal) through regulations and increase the use of renewable resources. A teaching progression K-12 is also included.

Welcome to the Neighborhood! Humans need a lot of things to survive (I'm sure you've noticed). We need food, water, and shelter and it takes a lot of resources to get all of those things. What are resources? In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about what resources are and how we use them. And you might be surprised where all of it starts. This first series is based on 5th grade science. We're super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids! ///Standards Used in This Video/// 5-ESS3-1.

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.

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 three Rs Hello I am the Earth, yup the very planet you live on. There are three words which start with the letter R which I love. They are: Reduce, reuse and recycle. Do you know why I love them so much? Because they are almost magical words. Together they can make all living things as well as myself be happier. I said that they are “almost” magical because without your help it won't work, they need all of you children in order to do the trick. Each and every one of you are the real 3Rs magicians, those three words which can change the world. Do you want to know how? Yes? Well let's find out. The first R is for reduce. If you think about it, there are many things you don’t need. When you go to the supermarket, I am sure you could take your own canvas bags instead of using disposable ones given to you. This way you will be reducing the amount of plastic which is very contaminating. And I am sure that you don’t need to print out so many documents or photos, nor leave the lights, television or computer on when you are not using them. If you remember this, you will be reducing the amount of paper being used as well as energy, and in turn will be helping reduce the contamination. And these are just a few examples. I am sure you can think of many more different ways to reduce what you are using or creating unnecessary waste. The following question will help you with this task: Do I really need this or is this just a whim? The second R is for recycling. Now it is easier than ever to recycle things we don’t need any more so that they can be reused. Near your home you can find places, like the recycling station and containers for cans, plastic, paper or organic waste. They each have their specific colors to make them easier. By using them, you will avoid contaminating nature, the rivers and seas as well as the atmosphere, which is the air we breathe. And finally we have the third R, which refers to reuse. How many things do you think we can reuse again and again instead of throwing them away? Let´s see…a piece of paper that has only one side printed on it, a carton box, a plastic bottle…you think now. With just a bit of imagination, I am sure you will come up with many more exciting and fun new uses for them. And remember: if you apply the 3Rs rule, you will make me a much cleaner planet, with less contamination and where we all can enjoy a better life. Because as you know…children can make the world of difference.

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

The Middle East region faces a laundry list of challenges, from civil strife and poor governance to regional rivalries and economic stagnation. Exacerbating these challenges are growing threats from environmental degradation, water shortages and climate change. As temperatures and populations rise, water resources become even more limited. Climate change is expected to make some areas drier and others wetter, leading to increased displacement and migration. As precipitation extremes increase in some regions, affected communities face greater threats from floods and droughts. To discuss these important issues, the Future of Iran Initiative at the Atlantic Council will host a panel discussion on environmental security in the region and the implications for regional stability. Peter Gleick, a world-renowned expert, innovator, and communicator on water and climate issues will frame some of the most impending challenges today. Kaveh Madani, an environmental scientist, educator, and activist, and former Iranian government official, will discuss Iran’s challenges in this area. Caitlin Werrell, co-founder of the Center for Climate and Security will discuss the implications of climate change, water stress and natural resource mismanagement in Syria and North Africa. Barbara Slavin, Director of the Future of Iran Initiative, will moderate the discussion. The event is open to press and on the record.

http://www.democracynow.org - A new investigation by The Crime Report published Monday documents how corporations almost never face criminal investigations for violating environmental laws such as the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. A survey of environmental violations tracked by the Environmental Protection Agency shows just one-half of one percent of them trigger criminal prosecution. Joining us to describe his investigation, The Crime Report's Graham Kates describes how one company, Alpha Natural Resources, faced only civil fines after it racked up more than 6,000 violations between 2007 and 2013. Kates say prosecutions are hampered by limited government resources in pursuing corporate polluters. The EPA has just 200 agents nationwide, and the Environmental Crime section of Department of Justice has just 38 prosecutors.

Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general. Every area on Earth has different natural resources and environments that determine what works best there. On a lighter note, feel free to keep up with WhatTheWhy on Twitter at https://twitter.com/WhatTheWhy1 . Thanks for watching!

Henrik Olsen pitches Environmental Technologies Fund at ECO13 London and talks about how to build capital-efficient companies that have big environmental impact. Fuel is running out – we have limited resources. Consequently, everybody in the cleantech startup and investor community tries to make better use of these resources. In fact, capital is also a limited resource and that’s why we need to use it very productively. During the last years, the number of investments has grown but with smaller amounts of capital – a good proof that the whole industry is working on using money more efficiently. According to Henrik, being capital efficient means executing scalable business models while acting in an adaptive, disciplined and resource efficient way. In general, Europe is capital efficient out of necessity as the capital available is not as abundant as in the US. After the first closing of ETF’s second fund, Henrik enjoys liquidity again and has got €70M to invest in Europe. As Henrik is a capital efficient VC, more than one startup should be able to tap into his cleantech fund. Read more: http://ecosummit.net/articles/henrik-olsen-pitches-environmental-technologies-fund

In this course, students learn about environmental inequalities in the United States. Poor and minority populations have historically born the brunt in the United States, suffering disproportionately from the effects of pollution, resource depletion, dangerous jobs, limited access to common resources, and exposure to environmental hazards. Paying particular attention to the ways that race, ethnicity, class, and gender have shaped the political and economic dimensions of environmental injustices, this course draws on the work of scholars and activists to examine the long history of environmental inequities in the United States, along with more recent political movements—national and local—that seek to rectify environmental injustices.
