It combines many disciplinessuch biology, geography, chemistry,geology, physics, economics,sociology, anthropology, resourcemanagement, agriculture, law, politics,engineering, and ethics.Physical Environment consists of theincoming radiant energy of the sun, air, Global Environmental Awakeningwater, and soil, which is required for Occurred in the 1960slife on Earth. 1.Rachel Carson’s book “The Silent Spring”Biological Environment 2.Major environmentalencompasses the organic catastrophes including Lakecomponents, organisms (including Erie, California oil spills, threatshumans) and their relationships on of extinctions whales,Earth. elephants, birds.

Video: http://www.newsnet5.com/dpp/news/local_news/ investigations/chemical-waste-being-hauled-to-ohio Possible cause of small earthquakes: Maps: http://www.dispatch.com/live/ http://www.newsnet5.com/generic/news/local_news/ content/local_news/stories/ investigations/ohio-disposal-wells-interactive-map 2011/03/21/disposal-wells-a- possible-cause-of-small- quakes.html?sid=101Several geologists believe that a Ohio hazardous-waste welltriggered a series of earthquakes near Ashtabula from 1987through 2001. Waste was injected into the well from 1986 through1992. Apparently what was happening was the fluid wasencountering faults at near-failure condition," said Michael Hansen,the state seismologist. A team of Columbia University geologistsconcluded that the well caused the quakes.- Columbus Dispatch, March 21, 2011.
