COD IN TROUBLE
A
In 1992, the devastating collapse of the cod stocks off the East coast of Newfoundland forced the
Canadian government to take drastic measures and close the fishery. Over 40,000 people lost
their jobs, communities are still struggling to recover and the marine ecosystem is still in a state of
collapse. The disintegration of this vital fishery sounded a warning bell to governments around the
world who were shocked that a relatively sophisticated, scientifically based fisheries management
program, not unlike their own, could have gone so wrong. The Canadian government ignored
warnings that their fleets were employing destructive fishing practices and refused to significantly
reduce quotas citing the loss of jobs as too great a concern
The Rise of Antibiotic-Resistant Infections
A
When penicillin became widely available during the Second World War, it was a medical
miracle, rapidly vanquishing the biggest wartime killer – infected wounds. Discovered initially by a
French medical student, Ernest Duchesne, in 1896, and then rediscovered by Scottish physician
Alexander Fleming in 1928, Penicillium crippled many types of disease-causing bacteria. But
just four years after drug companies began mass-producing penicillin in 1943, microbes began
appearing that could resist it
Hydroelectric Power
Hydroelectric power is America’s leading renewable energy resource. Of all the
renewable power sources, it’s the most reliable, efficient, and economical. Water is needed to
run a hydroelectric generating unit. It’s held in a reservoir or lake behind a dam, and the force of
the water being released from the reservoir through the dam spins the blades of a turbine.
The
turbine is connected to the generator that produces electricity. After passing through the turbine,
the water re-enters the river on the downstream side of the dam
