I won't do your homework, but I'll start you on your research: http://www.china.org.cn/english/en-shuzi... http://english.people.com.cn/92824/92845... http://www.indexmundi.com/china/natural_...

Georgie Originally Answered: To preserve natural resources, which of the following should be recycled?
Coal, oil, food, and natural gas cannot be recycled in the conventional sense. I suppose carbon dioxide produced from burning coal and oil can be recycled and converted to methanol. Food waste and human and animal waste (the product of food) can be composted. Natural gas produces carbon dioxide when burnt and that could be converted to methanol and reused. In the conventional sense of recycling none of those choices is actually possible. In the unconventional sense, almost everything is recycled eventually by geologic cycles whether we make any effort or not. Nature has been recycling for about 14 billion years now. Oil spills do contribute to increased global temperatures in the strict sense because most of the oil evaporates and is broken down by photochemical reactions in the atmosphere to carbon dioxide and water vapor, both of which are greenhouse gases. There is technically no correct choice for that question. Oh, and oil spills will continue because they are naturally occurring events that have taken place for at least the last 400 million years or so, often catastrophically, but commonly on a daily continual basis. The third question has three examples that are not recycling: reusing plastic bags or furniture, which is actually repurposing or reusing, not recycling. Buying compact fluorescents is not any sort of recycling or repurposing. It is simply different technology that has its own serious environmental issues and can easily be argued to be much more hazardous than using an incandescent powered by solar, wind, hydropower, or natural gas fired power plants due to the mercury vapor that eventually escapes from the compact fluorescent bulb. Only in the case of coal generated electricity does the mercury become a net gain, and the distribution of the mercury emissions will be much more widely distributed and much more difficult to contain, so it represents a long-term hazard from my point of view. The whole promotion of compact fluorescents is simply a statistical lie based on the false assumption that electricity is produced only from coal and the myth that there are actually ways to prevent the mercury in them from entering the environment. I myself am stocking up on incandescents before they are banned in the US at the end of this year. I don't like mercury in my indoor environment no matter how diluted it becomes after the bulb breaks or leaks- and I've experienced both of these issues already. Hopefully the whole compact fluorescent industry will go the way of 5 1/4 inch floppy disks and whale-oil lanterns in a few years and be replaced by LED's.

In general items should be re-used and recycled. The answer for #1 would be B. But recent research indicates Glass is not recycle friendly. It takes more resources to recycle a bottle than it saves mostly due to its weight. "If oil spills continue?" This seems to be a leading question. Meaning that the question is intended to prove a point. The answer they want would be D. Remember that the keyboard you are typing on is made from oil, the lotion in your bathroom is oil and if you take any medications it is likely based on oil. My point is we need oil. We just need to keep funding programs to make it safer to drill and more productive. For #3 the answer is D. But Answer A is re-using material. Not recycling.

they get iron ores and other minerals such as coal from australia, brazil, united states, canada and even india. china is a fairly enlarged version of japan. when the japs dominated world trade in their heydays, they controled only 10% of australian iron ore exports, the chinese nowadays controls 70%. The chinese are eager to get rich, that's why they are all over the world, it's definitely a vibrant nation at the moment, with tons of people trying to fight and change their destiny. China this year would continue to lead the world trade by being the largest exporter no doubt, what would even be more astounishing is that they probably will overtake united states to be the largest IMPORTER as well. In 2010, they were a close 2nd. There's also another phenonmenon worth mentioning, china's two-way trade with united states is exceeding canada for the first time in the 235 yrs of US history ! And guess what, a large portion of the US-china trade are actually US AGRICULTURE EXPORTS TO CHINA ! fancinating isn't it, the chinese now are rich enough to buy crops from united states to satisfy their domestic consumption of food !

Cady Originally Answered: If China is so powerful, why do so many Chinese emigrate from China? if China is so good, why do they leave?
Let me tell u what I saw in China. First, the upper class in China are eager to emigrate, a sizable proportion of them have some relevant political background. Most of ordinary civil servant and official in China definitely cannot afford the immigration and studying abroad, they got very low salarys(1000-5000RMB per month). Obviously they accumulate the wealth via corruption for a longtime at a venture, so they can do the money laundering abroad and to keep the children from danger. The businessmen are also willing to emigrate from china to ensure their children to get, I say, the regular education. The education in china is truely imbalance and abnormal. The compulsory education is totally affected by the value of the CPC, students in china are usually have much less chances to enter the college. Even u can accommodate the system of education, the quality of college education is completely crap, u can see into what is all about through the booming of amount of univeristies. Let me tell u, I am a sophomore studying the M.A. I can teach in the public universities without any title, all by myself.It is just like kidding. Second,the middle class guys are deposed of immigration. just to be clear, the spending in US is really unaffordable for most middle class in China, let alone the college aducation and real estate buying. The social injustice push them hard to make a fortune and suffering the enormous life pressure. People have some democratic ideal and honest academic standard are tend to move to west. I am not saying China is a hopeless place, but at least the country has been infected by Mao SO deeply and detrimentally,in long term China cannot be a threat to west.As a chinese I sincerely believe that China won't harm the west for developing even if she is someday powerful enough to do so. That's from the traditional value of China.
