CRW 2 Environment

December 4, 2017

The following is an example paragraph from p. 119 #3:

There are a variety of actions householders can take to protect their homes from floods. These steps, if followed closely, can minimize the damage from any unwanted water that may flow into the dwelling. The most important step involves personal safety, so residents must decide whether to stay in the house or not. If the flood is severe and the occupants are old or in poor health, they should be relocated to a safer place as quickly as possible. Secondly, valuable possessions like furniture or electronics should be moved upstairs or raised off the floor. Finally, it is a good idea to pile sandbags along the outside walls and doors to limit the amount of water that enters the house.

CRW 2 Unit 6 Environment

November 29, 2017

Today’s homework, due Monday, is to write a short description of a specific case study on an environmental problem. You might review the example paragraph on page 112 (paragraph 2) about drought in Kenya, as well as look at the example below, which is a description of case study A on page 116. Note: You will be able to use the description of the case in which you are interested when you write the essay at the end of the unit.

Case Study A: Fire Risk
Southern Australia is susceptible to bush fires. The geography of the area is heavily forested, so there is an enormous amount of fuel for the blazes. Especially common during summer months, the number and intensity of the destructive fires have escalated recently. Experts blame the phenomenon on several factors including global warming, drought, and human activity. This, in turn, has resulted in the loss of commercial and residential buildings, animal habitats, and health problems from smoke pollution.
