Ambulance Drivers Upper Class
1,806 wordsIn nearly every culture, certain distinctions exist which elevate particular members of society above others.

This issue was of concer...

Cloning Of Humans Genetically Identical
1,403 wordsCLONING: HAS SCIENCE GONE TOO FAR? INTRODUCTION For years the subject of cloning has captured the imaginations of authors, movie directors and much of the human population. Cloning is the prospect of creating an animal or even a person that is genetically identical to its parent. Until recently the subject seemed farfetched and fictional, because no one really realized how close we had actually advanced in cloning research. It was during February of 1997 that an embryologist, Dr. Ian Wilmut, ann...

Coal Mines Carbon Dioxide
792 wordsMethane by Pamela The molecule, methane, is made up of one carbon and four hydrogen atoms making the compound CH 4. It is the second most important greenhouse gas. One molecule of methane is twenty times more efficient at absorbing infrared radiation than a molecule of carbon dioxide (CO 2). The amount of methane is increasing about 1 % a year, faster than any other greenhouse gas. Recently, the concentration is 1. 7 parts per million (ppm), which is nearly twice of what it was a few hundred of ...
