Pollution

I am currently in a class that covers the 7 Revolutions of the world ( Poplulation, Resource Managment, Technology, Information, Economic Integration, Conflict, and Governance). Over the semester we have discussed problems and concerns that have evolved in the 7 Revolutions. One main concern I have is resource management. We USE USE and USE our resources and pollute our enviornment but when it comes to cleaning up the enviroment and running out of resources, we do not know what to do or how to go about the change and the damage that has already been done. The power point I have made shows some interesting facts that will get you thinking about what is really happening to our enviroment and how important it is to recycle.
