Natural Resources and Environmental Science (NRES) is an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science degree grounded in the natural AND social sciences. The curriculum is rich in experiential learning, requiring a 3- week summer camp and an internship or research experience. With small class sizes, one-on-one faculty interactions, writing intensive courses, and a strong network of Alumni working to make a difference locally and globally, NRES is a proven program that has been in existence for over 20 years! NRE 201: Natural Resources and Environmental Science is the entry point into the major. Students learn about the curriculum and the various focus areas as well as get to know each other as a cohort that will spend the next three years together. A highlight of the course is our two-day trip to Mammoth Cave National Park which includes a service learning project. Each year the project is different but the goal remains the same, to introduce students to our natural environment in a hands-on way. For more information about the major students can visit our website: http://nres.ca.uky.edu/ or contact Geri Philpott, NRES Academic Coordinator, 859-257-2337, [email protected] Check us out on social media!

James explains: http://bit.ly/1Pzy1k5 ____________ European economies were so closely connected that some people expected they have to avoid another world war or destroy their finances, but in fact World War I had taught them how to prepare for just such a scenario. Germany, France, and Great Britain all invested in their military before war broke out. When evaluating these economies to see how war would affect them, we look at four main factors: GDP, population, territorial extent, and per capita income. Broadly, this helps us determine how resilient, expansive, self-sufficient, and developed a nation is. All of those factors determine how a nation must conduct its war. For example, the vast territorial holdings of the British Empire meant that they had vast resources to draw upon but needed a long time to mobilize them, which helped Germany determine that they needed to strike fast and win big if they hoped to win the war before Britain's full resources came into play. Japan also estimated that they could win a war in the Pacific if they managed to win before the US had been involved for more than 6 months. These calculations drove the early strategies of the Axis powers, but the participation of the US would later prove to be a crucial factor. ____________ BONUS!

Have you ever wondered how to build a fully functioning cob house for just 250 dollars? Well, a UK farmer has managed to do just that. 59-year-old Michael Buck, spent two years constructing this mushroom-shaped house in the garden of his Oxfordshire home. What makes this house unique is that it's built from scratch using only natural or recycled materials and not a single power tool. He used an ancient building technique of cob from a book to build the house. The technique comes from prehistoric times and involves a mixture of sand, clay, straw, water and earth. What's more, the property has no main electricity, gas or water supply. But it does have free running water from a nearby spring. Inside, it has a kitchen, dining area and a bunk-styled bed. Incredible, isn't it?

This video was created for use on the UK's Multi Comfort website - https://multicomfort.saint-gobain.co.uk/ Transcript of video Buildings have a big impact on the environment. The construction and renovation of buildings uses precious natural resources Then, when in use, buildings are responsible for a significant proportion of all our carbon emissions. Energy used in the construction and use of our homes and other buildings accounts for around half of the UK’s total carbon dioxide emissions Under the Climate Change Act 2008 we have a legally binding target to reduce these emissions by at least 80% by 2050 Globally it is a similar picture. Buildings account for around 35% of resources, 40% of energy use, consume 12% of the world’s drinkable water and produce almost 40% of global carbon emissions So what can we do? Producers of building materials like us, can ensure this is done in ways so as not to adversely affect the environment. We believe we have performed one of the largest number of Life Cycle Analysis in the UK, on our product range. These Environmental Product Declarations or EPDs, show how our products have been made in a sustainable way, minimising energy usage and helping to protect the environment In addition, many of the products and solutions we produce then go on to help minimise energy use in the buildings that have been built or renovated Poorly designed and constructed buildings use more energy, increasing the demand on energy production and contributing to global warming. Reducing energy use in buildings is one of the most important ways to reduce humans’ overall environmental impact.

British trees and woodlands documentary. Ancient woodland trees and forests. The ancient woodland and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB; Welsh: Dyffryn Gwy) is an internationally important protected landscape straddling the border between England and Wales. It is one of the most dramatic and scenic landscape areas in southern Britain. The River Wye (Welsh: Afon Gwy) is the fifth-longest river in the United Kingdom. The upper part of the river passes through the settlements of Rhayader, Builth Wells and Hay-on-Wye, but the area designated as an AONB covers 326 square kilometres (126 sq mi) surrounding a 72-kilometre (45 mi) stretch lower down the river, from just south of the city of Hereford to Chepstow. British trees and woodlands. In the UK, an ancient woodland is a woodland that has existed continuously since 1600 or before in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (or 1750 in Scotland). Before those dates, planting of new woodland was uncommon, so a wood present in 1600 was likely to have developed naturally. The analogous American term is "old-growth forest". In most ancient woods, the trees and shrubs have been cut down periodically as part of the management cycle. Provided that the area has remained as woodland, the stand is still considered ancient. Since it may have been cut over many times in the past, ancient woodland does not necessarily contain very old trees. For many species of animal and plant, ancient woodland sites provide the sole habitat, and for many others, conditions on these sites are much more suitable than those on other sites. Ancient woodland in the UK, like rainforest in the tropics, is home to rare and threatened species. For these reasons ancient woodland is often described as an irreplaceable resource, or 'critical natural capital'. Ancient woodland is formally defined on maps by Natural England and equivalent bodies. Mapping of ancient woodland has been undertaken in different ways and at different times, and the quality and availability of data varies from region to region, although there are some efforts to standardise and update it.

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the British Geological Survey (BGS) are two of the UK’s leading scientific agencies. We are investing £31 million in creating two observatories that will provide essential new scientific evidence on the geological environment that modern society uses extensively every day. Meeting future energy demand for the UK will require new technologies and these may include making use of the subsurface. To ensure this is done sustainably, we need to advance our understanding of the underground environment and the potential impact these technologies could have. We are proposing two observatories looking at different geological environments in Glasgow and in the Ince Marshes area of Cheshire. The observatories will comprise drilling deep and shallow boreholes so that state-of-the-art sensors can be installed to measure precisely the state of the underground. The sites will attract world-leading geologists, engineers and other scientists. The data, information and knowledge they generate will provide industry, academia, regulators, government and the public with the tools to break new boundaries in energy science, develop better low-carbon solutions and take care of the environment. Who’s running the project? The observatories have been commissioned by NERC and they will be delivered and operated by the BGS. The project is a capital investment from the UK government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). NERC is the UK’s leading public funder of environmental science. Our scientists study and monitor the physical, chemical and biological processes on which our planet and life itself depend. Our goal is to place environmental science at the heart of responsible management of our planet. The BGS is the UK’s premier provider of objective and authoritative geoscientific data, information and knowledge to help society to use its natural resources responsibly, manage environmental change and be resilient to environmental hazards. Why create underground observatories? • To provide real-time, independent monitoring and observations of how underground energy technologies affect natural ecosystems and the environment at the surface, such as farming and water supply. • To gather high-quality scientific evidence on new and established energy and storage technology, increasing efficiency and environmental sustainability. • To gain a world-class understanding that could support management and regulation. • To develop innovative, exportable technology and expertise. Data for all: UK Geoenergy Observatories will be the biggest ever environmental monitoring project the BGS has set up in terms of the volume of data. The two sites will be in use for the next 15 years and it’s impossible to know what new technology may be around the corner. Our teams are thinking very carefully about how the sites can be set up so they can be expanded and adapted over time. For more information see: http://www.bgs.ac.uk/research/energy/esios/home.html
