All combustion engines release pollutants that damage the atmosphere like carbon dioxide and other gases. Nora states that Diesel engines emit black carbon which is worse than any other version of carbon dioxide. That black carbon can really harm the health of people because when it is deeply inhaled it can trigger asthma attacks and exacerbate chronic bronchitis. The international agency for cancer research has labeled the particles of black carbon carcinogenic. This explains how diesel exhausts are harmful to the environment and the people and animals that live in it. This proves that the diesel engines are not the way of the future unless they find a way to clean up the emissions that diesel engines
Electric Energy Op Ed Rough Draft How would you like to never have to pay for gas again? With gas prices always changing you never know how much money you are going to be feeding to the pump. By trading your car in for an electric powered car, gas will be
In this paper, we focus on using fossil fuels causing climate change. Fossil fuels are fuels formed natural resources such as coal, petroleum and natural gas, which are the most widely used fuel and industrial chemicals in the world. Since industrial revolution, fossil fuels bring a very great quantity
I believe that the United States Coast Guard consists of people who are the best of the best. Being in the Coast Guard means more than what most people may think. I know joining the armed forces means I have to be willing to serve my country and take any actions necessary to defend it, which may include giving my life to protect others. The Coast Guard’s three core values encompass the mental capacity needed in order to do so. The three values of Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty are vital to holding any position in the Coast Guard. Honor is more than just a word. It helps define who you are, what you believe in and is a statement of your character. Honor is not something a person can ask for, it must be earned. It is gained alongside with
Hiss vehemently denied these claims,saying that he had “never been a communist”, but then was eventually found guilty. At this point, he had gone too long without being charged and could not be charged with espionage, his original charge, but he was found to be lying under oath. He was charged with perjury, and served 44 months in jail.
1. Today when looking at members of the Coast Guard there is very little difference in uniform to distinguish the senior enlisted and Officer Corps from that of the Junior Enlisted Corps. The Coast Guard believes that there is a distinct difference between a First Class Petty Officer and a Chief but has gone away from making that difference easy to see from a distance. The Navy goes so far as to change the entire color and style of their uniform as well as the change of the combination cover when a member is advanced to the pay grade of E-7. This is due to the belief that the amount of responsibility one takes on with this advancement warrants the clear delineation, one that can be seen right away. Furthermore, even today when going through the Chiefs Call to Indoctrination process, all Navy and Coast Guard Chiefs build a hat box solely for the purpose of housing their new combination cover, a cover that in today’s Coast Guard members have been wearing since boot camp. The Coast Guard used to make the same uniform change as the Navy, and we have strayed from this tradition, strayed at the cost of a loss of respect in this advancement. The Coast Guard should visibly distinguish E-7 and above by making a change in the uniform regulations and making E-7 and above only authorized to wear the combination cover.
The current Coast Guard Enlisted Employee Review (EER) and future Enlisted Evaluation System (EES) does not have accountability to members that use tobacco products. The Surgeon General of the United States has determined that tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable illness, disability, and death in the United States,
Are EPA Diesel Emission regulations regulating Truck owners? As a result of EPA regulations, today’s diesel engines are more efficient than ever before seen in large and midsized trucks. Certain regulations restrict truck owners from using certain truck models, because of excess diesel emission. Increasing drastically as technology improves, cars and trucks produce less and less diesel exhausts and emissions. “But because diesel engines can operate for 30 years or more, millions of older, dirtier engines are still in use,” (Epa.Gov). Reducing exposure to diesel exhaust from these engines is especially important for the preservation of human health and the environment. According to the EPA, the United States Environmental Protection Agency,
The United States Coast Guard (USCG) has been protecting the national sovereignty of the United States for 211 years. Even though the events of September 11, 2001 happened the USCG has not let up their vigilance and heightened state of alert to more than 361 ports and 95,000 miles of shoreline. This happens to be the largest border for the United States. As part of Operation Noble Eagle the USCG plays an important role with upholding operations of ports and waterways. They ensure a safe atmosphere for the American people and mariners to conduct business and living freely across the waterways. The USCG roles and responsibilities for securing the waterways includes protection of ports, flow of commerce, and marine transportation system from
Los Angeles has the worst air quality in the nation. In the Los Angeles area an estimated 1,341 people die each year from conditions caused by poor air quality (Danelski, 2016). When compared to our neighboring cities and counties our death rate is significantly higher. While both local and
As the skipper of a vessel you have many responsibilities to reckon with, such as the safety of the crew, the vessel's seaworthiness, weather, currents, navigation, attentiveness to other vessels and the appropriate operation of the boat. But, boating can be fun, safe and rewarding if you take time to learn how to safely operate your boat, and follow the rules. Learning the requisite laws and regulations is a good starting point. The United States Coast Guard (USCG) distributes a publication call Navigation Rules: International - Inland. This publication, which can be ordered or downloaded from the USCG website, is also referred to as the navigational "Rules of the Road" or "Coloregs". These regulations apply to vessels operating on international and inland waters, and include the rules
Since the very beginning it was first established, the Coast Guard was never seen as important to the people for about 200 years. Why is it that they’ve never had notice? How come they do all the dirty work in the ocean and no one seems to care? Well the Coast Guard is the reason why the United States has been protected, so that we can go to bed at night knowing that nothing’s going to happen to us. There are many reasons to why the Coast Guard is so important to society. The U.S. Coast is a huge part of our military and follows certain goals on the ocean to protect us from harm. There are also individuals who are aware of the situations that the Coast Guards are going through and by helping they get involved with some of the minor
Some of the gases in our atmosphere such As a result of incomplete combustion of fuels, additional by products such as carbon monoxide (CO), unburned hydrocarbons (HC), and particulate matter (PM) are also formed. Many of these emissions have health and climate impacts on both a local and global level. (Jamin et al, 2004)
US Jet Fuel Production Potential and Cost from non-LUC Feedstocks Aircraft Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions – accounting for 12 percent of all US transportation GHGs emissions and 3 percent of total US GHG emissions– endangers public health and welfare (EPA rule and regulation, 40 CFR Parts 87 and 1068). Federal Aviation Administration estimates that nearly 30% of GHGs reduction in aviation sector can be achived with the biojet fuel adoption (FAA, 2012). With the growing concern on the environment, much efforts including reduction plans have been put by governing bodies to limit emission from aviation fuel consumption.
