Has there ever been a study on the carbon footprint caused by the so-called green recycling industry?
Recycling is supposed to be the green, environmentally friendly option, but is it really?
Huge fume belching and gas guzzling lorries are used to transport your recycling material from your door to the recycling place.
Hundreds of cars drive every week to their recycling centre, usually with only one person in the car and a box of only half a dozen wine bottles and a few newspapers.
The waste processing plants have lots of heavy machinery which all requires greedy amounts of power.
Some recycling procedures, such as glass and plastic require huge amounts of heat to melt the materials before they can be re-moulded.
All of these things consume vast amounts of our planets natural resources.
But do they consume more or less than they save?
Has there ever been an official study into this?
Firstly, Don't brand me as an anti-environmentalist. I am simply asking a question to poll peoples opinions. It's not as if I am not burning down woodlands and pouring bleach into rivers.
Secondly, Don't assume I am American. I posted this in Yahoo UK & Ireland Answers.
Question answered by Ellis
I believe it's long been known that the energy used in cleaning the printing off paper so that it can be recycled far outweighs the energy involved in making new paper. But recycling paper does save a lot of trees. There's always some trade off.
What are some careers that are stable and make at least 65k or more?
I'm currently a full time student at a community college. I'm doing my pre requisites for the nursing program but I do not believe this is the career path I want to go down. I know the money is excellent! The money and stability is mainly the only reason why I was interested in the nursing field but i am recently looking into new options.

Whats the most useful language for an English person to learn?
French, German, not so keen on Spanish down to personal preference i think i'd sound an idiot speaking it.
They are good.
Question answered by Sergio P
1. German is the most widely spoken language in Europe.
More people speak German as their native language than any other language in Europe. It's no wonder, since Germany's 83 million inhabitants make it the most populous European nation. But not only the residents of Germany speak German. It is also an official language of Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein. And it is the native language of a significant portion of the population in northern Italy, eastern Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, eastern France, parts of Poland, the Czech Republic, Russia, and Romania, as well as in other parts of Europe.
While learning German can connect you to 120 million native speakers around the globe, remember that many people also learn German as a second language. It is the 3rd most popular foreign language taught worldwide and the second most popular in Europe and Japan, after English.
2. Germany has the 3rd strongest economy and is the #1 export nation in the world.
Germany has the third largest economy in the world and is the economic powerhouse of the European Union. In 2007 -- for the 5th year in a row and depite the strength of the euro currency -- the Germans were world champions in exports. The country exported 940 billion US dollars worth of goods, just ahead of the US exports. From cars to machinery and industrial equipment, from pharmaceuticals to household goods, German businesses earn 1 in 3 euros through export, and 1 in 4 jobs depends on exports. The competetiveness and desirability of German products on the market are indicated by the country's substantial trade surplus, which reached 162 billion euros (209 billion dollars) in 2006 and continues to grow every year.
And don't forget that Switzerland, another German-speaking country, has one of the highest standards of living in the world.
3. Knowing German creates business opportunities.
Germany's economic strength equals business opportunities. Multinational business opportunities exist throughout the European Union and in the Eastern European countries, where German is the second most spoken language after Russian. Companies like BMW, Daimler, Siemens, Lufthansa, SAP, Bosch, Infineon, BASF, and many others need international partners. The Japanese, who have the 2nd most powerful economy in the world, understand the business advantages that a knowledge of German will bring them: 68% of Japanese students study German.
If you're looking for employment in the United States, knowing German can give you great advantages. German companies account for 700,000 jobs in the United States, and US companies have created approximately the same number of jobs in Germany. All other things being equal, the job candidate with German skills will trump the one without such skills every time. Most surveyed companies in the United States would choose someone with German literacy over an equally qualified candidate.
4. Germans are innovators.
The German Daniel Fahrenheit
developed the mercury
thermometer in 1714.From Gutenberg's printing press to Hertz' discovery of electromagnetic waves, from Ehrlich's development of chemotherapy to Einstein's theory of relativity, to Brandenburg's creation of the MP3 digital music format, throughout history Germans have proven themselves time and again to be great innovators. That trend continues today. 4 of the world's 10 most innovative companies are located in Germany and at 12.7% of the world's patent applications, the country ranks 3rd in the world. Consequently, 200,000 businesses introduce new products on the market each year.
As a nation committed to research and development, Germans are on the frontline of new technologies. Germany exports more high-tech products than any other country except the U.S. and more than 600 firms are active in the cutting-edge field of biotechnology. 115 of these are located in Munich alone. The east German city of Dresden has become Europe's microchip center with its more than 765 semiconductor firms.
Given the Germans' commitment to innovation, it is perhaps not surprising that two-thirds of the world's leading international trade fairs take place in Germany. These include CeBIT, the world's largest trade fair for information and communications technology, and the IFA consumer electronics trade fair .currently i am taking german and ive been learning it pretty well it is similar to english. ist das klar!

Question answered by gayle g
I found this information on Wikipedia - by searching Zimbabweian Economy -
I think if you read this - and understand it - your presentation will be successful. I suggest you print this out - and study it - re read till you truly understand what you are talking about.
In recent years, poor management of the economy and political turmoil has led to considerable economic hardship. The Government of Zimbabwe's chaotic land reform program, recurrent interference with, and intimidation of, the judiciary, as well as maintenance of unrealistic price controls and exchange rates has led to a sharp drop in investor confidence.
On November 1, 1989 a former government minister in Rhodesia, Denis Walker, produced a paper in London for the Conservative Monday Club's Foreign Affairs Committee on Land Reform in Zimbabwe. In his last paragraph he stated that "once the land has been redistributed, the commercial farms will be broken up, the remaining white farmers reduced by exile or imprisonment; Zimbabwe's government, already morally bankrupt, will decline towards economic collapse."
Between 2000 and December 2007, the national economy contracted by as much as 40%; inflation vaulted to over 66,000%, and there were persistent shortages of foreign exchange, local currency, fuel, medicine, and food. GDP per capita dropped by 40%, agricultural output dropped by 51% and industrial production dropped by 47%.
Direct foreign investment has all but evaporated. In 1998 , direct foreign investment was US $400 million. In 2007, that number had fallen to US $30 million 
Billions were spent in the country's involvement in the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Price controls have been imposed on a wide range of products including food (maize, bread, steak), fuel, medicines, soap, electrical appliances, yarn, window frames, building sand, agricultural machinery, fertilisers and school textbooks.
Mugabe's supporters maintain that economic hardship has been brought about by Western-backed economic sanctions instituted through the United Nations. However, the only sanctions in place are personal sanctions against about 130 senior Zanu-PF figures; there are no sanctions against trade or investment with Zimbabwe.
As of February 2004 Zimbabwe's foreign debt repayments ceased, resulting in compulsory suspension from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). This, and the United Nations World Food Programme stopping its food aid due to insufficient donations from the world community, has forced the government into borrowing from local sources.
Zimbabwe began experiencing severe foreign exchange shortages, exacerbated by the difference between the official rate and the black market rate in 2000. In 2004 a system of auctioning scarce foreign currency for importers was introduced, which temporarily led to a slight reduction in the foreign currency crisis, but by mid 2005 foreign currency shortages were once again chronic. The currency was devalued by the central bank twice, first to 9,000 to the US$, and then to 17,500 to the US$ on 20 July 2005, but at that date it was reported that that was only half the rate available on the black market.
In July 2005 Zimbabwe was reported to be appealing to the South African government for US$1 billion of emergency loans, but despite regular rumours that the idea was being discussed no financial support has been obtained from South Africa.
The official Zimbabwean dollar exchange rate had been frozen at Z$101,196 per U.S. dollar since early 2006, but as of 27 July 2006 the parallel (black market) rate has reached Z$550,000 per U.S. dollar. By comparison, 10 years earlier, the rate of exchange was only Z$9.13 per USD.
In August 2006 the RBZ revalued the Zimbabwean Dollar by 1000 ZWD to 1 (revalued) dollar. At the same time Zimbabwe devalued the Zim Dollar by 60% against the USD. New official exchange rate revalued ZWD 250 per USD. The parallel market rate was about revalued ZWD 1,200 to 1,500 per USD (28 September 2006).
In November 2006 it was announced that sometime around December 1 there would be a further devaluation and that the official exchange rate would change to revalued ZWD 750 per USD. This never materialized. However, the parallel market immediately reacted to this news with the parallel rate falling to ZWD 2,000 per USD (18 November 2006) and by year end it had fallen to ZWD 3,000 per USD.
On April 1, 2007 the parallel market was asking ZWD 30,000 for $1 USD. By year end, it was down to about ZWD 2,000,000. On 18 January 2008, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe began to issue higher denomination ZWD bearer cheques (a banknote with an expiry date), including $10 million bearer cheques - each of which was worth less than US $1.35 (70p Sterling; 0.90 Euro) on the parallel market at the time of first issue. On April 4, 2008 the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe introduced new $25 million and $50 million bearer cheques. At the time of first issue they were worth US$0.70 & US$1.40 on the parallel market respectively.
On May 1, 2008, the RBZ announced that the dollar would be allowed to float in value subject to some conditions.
May 6, 2008, the RBZ issued new $100 million and $250 million bearer cheques. At the date of first issue the $250 million bearer cheque was worth approximately US$1.30 on the parallel market. On May 15, 2008, a new $500 million bearer cheque was issued by the RBZ. At time of first issue it was worth US$1.93. In a widely unreported parallel move, on May 15, 2008, the RBZ issued three "special agro-cheques" with face values $5 billion (at time of first issue - $19.30), $25 billion ($96.50) & $50 billion ($193). It is further reported that the new agro-cheques can be used to buy any goods and services like the bearer cheques.
2008 (Jan) 30,000 revalued dollars 5,000,000 - 7,500,000 revalued dollars
2008 (Feb) 30,000 revalued dollars 20,000,000 revalued dollars
2008(Mar) 30,000 revalued dollars 35 - 70,000,000 revalued dollars

Poverty and unemployment are both endemic in Zimbabwe, driven by the shrinking economy and hyper-inflation. Both unemployment and poverty rates run near 80%
As of January 2006, the official poverty line was ZWD 17,200 per month (17c US). However, as of March 2008 this had risen to ZWD 875 million per month (US $35.00) . Most general labourers are paid under ZWD 250 million (US $10) per month .
Salaries for most government employees range from 200 million to 500 million Zimbabwe dollars (per month) and a union representing teachers making up the bulk of state workers is pushing for a wage hike to at least Z$1.7 billion to keep up with inflation. 
The lowest 10% of Zimbabwe's population consume only 1.97% of the economy, while the highest 10% consume 40.42%. (1995). The current account balance of the country is negative, standing at around US -$517 million.
The 2007 Empowerment Bill to increase local ownership of economy is being drafted for presentation to parliament in July 2007. It is signed into law by President Mugabe on 7th March 2008. The law requires all White or foreign owned business to hand over 51 percent of their business to indigenous Zimbabweans. Many economists predict this will plunge the country into deeper economic woes.
In response to skyrocketing inflation the government has introduced price controls, but enforcement has been largely unsuccessful. Police have been sent in to enforce requirements that shopkeepers sell goods at a loss. This has resulted in hundreds of shop owners being arrested under accusations of not having lowered prices enough. Because of this, basic goods no longer appear on supermarket shelves and the supply of petrol is limited. This has diminished public transport. However, goods can usually be had for a high rate on the black market.
Need help understanding the stock market?
I'm 13 years old and I don't know anything about the economy or stocks.
What are stocks and what do they do for the economy and for investors?
When i was 7 years old I asked my teacher if our country needed money why don't we just print some more. Why can't we just print money?
My parents don't have stocks should I encourage them to do so.
Question answered by Mark L
Welcome to investing, you'll be glad you got interested at such a young age. You will learn that your money can make money for you through investing, but only if you educate yourself about investments and the companies they represent.
Stocks represent an ownership interest in companies that produce goods or provide services. All businesses that are formed as corporations have stock, but it is only when a company "goes public" that it has stock that trades on a public market or securities exchange (like the New York Stock Exchange).
When companies are growing, they can raise additional money (called capital) to be used to expand their business, hire more people, acquire more machinery, etc. from public investors through this process called the IPO or initial public offering. In essence, through this process, the owners of the business are selling a piece of the business to the new investors. The company's stock is then usually listed for trading on the securities exchange (it must meet stringent qualifications) where buyers and sellers can buy and sell the shares of stock each day.
Stocks give investors a chance to participate in the growth of that company in exchange for their investment (with some exceptions for later public offerings of stock,only the money received from the first group of investors actually goes to the company). Trading on the exchange is between buyers and sellers of the stock and that money is exchanged between them (it doesn't go to the company). Investors can benefit in 2 ways -- either from the increase in the stock price or from the receipt of dividends from the company. If a company is doing well in business and making profits, the directors of that company can decide to share some of those profits with its shareholders by paying them a portion in what's called a dividend. Also, as a company grows its profits, investors may want to pay more for a share of stock of that company and the stock price can go up. If an investor bought the stock for a lower price per share, then he may be able to sell it for a higher share price and profit from his investment. Thus, stocks provide companies with access to money for investment and in turn give investors a chance to profit from dividends or increases in stock prices. Companies that have access to investment can grow their business and hire more people and produce more products and services, and pay taxes on their profits and wages, which helps the government provide certain services to its people.
Printing money is called inflation. Governments do print money, but if they printed more money than the economy needed to grow, the currency would be worth less and less, leading to an increase in prices for everything. Printing money does not produce goods and services for people to buy and people to make. The more goods and services that are produced, the better people are.
You should absolutely encourage your parents to learn about and invest in stocks. Even if they do not want to, you should start to save your money and learn how to invest. Let your money work for you so you don't have to work so hard for yourself.

What are five reasons Great Britain was the first to industrialize?
Question answered by LM
Ever since the Renaissance, Europeans had been inventing and using ever more complex machinery. Particularly important were improvements in transportation, such as faster ships, and communication, especially printing. These improvements played a key role in the development of the Industrial Revolution by encouraging the movement of new ideas and mechanisms, as well as the people who knew how to build and run them.
The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain because social, political, and legal conditions there were particularly favorable to change. Property rights, such as those for patents on mechanical improvements, were well established. More importantly, the predictable, stable rule of law in Britain meant that monarchs and aristocrats were less likely to arbitrarily seize earnings or impose taxes than they were in many other countries. As a result, earnings were safer, and ambitious businesspeople could gain wealth, social prestige, and power more easily than could people on the European continent. These factors encouraged risk taking and investment in new business ventures, both crucial to economic growth.
In addition, Great Britain’s government pursued a relatively hands-off economic policy. This free-market approach was made popular through Scottish philosopher and economist Adam Smith and his book The Wealth of Nations (1776). The hands-off policy permitted fresh methods and ideas to flourish with little interference or regulation.
Britain’s nurturing social and political setting encouraged the changes that began in a few trades to spread to others. Gradually the new ways of production transformed more and more parts of the British economy, although older methods continued in many industries. Several industries played key roles in Britain’s industrialization. Iron and steel manufacture, the production of steam engines, and textiles were all powerful influences, as was the rise of a machine-building sector able to spread mechanization to other parts of the economy.
what was the world like during the time of the elizabethan populrity?
Question answered by Louise C
Well, assuming that you mean the time of Elizabeth I, most people throughout the world would still have been living by agriculture, as most people did up until the late 18th century.
In England and in Europe generally, people lived on smallholdings, that is small farms that produced enough crops for their own use, with a surplus to sell. Likewise animals would be farmed for their own use.
There was no machinery, so everything was hand-made, wool and flax would be spun into thread by women (spinning was always a female occupation) and woven into cloth. For those who didn't grow their own food, it was generally a lot more expensive to buy than it is now, because it wasn't produced in such large quantities, and agriculture was much more labour intensive than it is now. women were generally epxected to manufacture most of their own household products, like soap, candles, medicines etc. They would also be expected to preserve food for the winter, since there was little fresh food available in winter time.
Towns were much smaller than they are now, but filled with tradesmen and craftsmen of all kinds. people in those days mostly worked in or near their own homes, there were no factories or office blocks etc, and most businesses were family affairs, with wives and children participating in the running of whatever the family trade might be.
In england, the theatre was becoming very popular, with the first specially built theatres in London. William Shakespeare was writing his famous plays. Other writers were also producing plays, in Spain for instance Lope da Vega was as famous as Shakesepare was in England, and wrote a great many more plays than Shakespeare did.
People enjoyed sports and games like tennis, archery, wrestling, football (football matches were very large and violent) and bowls and skittles. Golf was becoming popular in Scotland, Mary Queen of Scots was a very keen golfer. People also enjoyed more bloodthirsty sports like bear-baiting and rooster-fighting.
Printing had been invented in 1450, so books were much more widely available than they had been, but they were still expensive items, though there were cheap pamphlets and broadsheets which poorer people could afford to buy.
In Europe generally most people were stronlgy religious, and since the Protestant Reformation there had been a period of great religious turmoil, with France for instance torn apart by bloody religious wars. In England, the Elizabethan period was relatively peacable, since Elizabeth had decisively settled the religious question by confirming the Church of England as the state religion, with herself as head.
Many parts of the world remained unexplored by Europeans, and much of America was still unknown to Europe for instance. Native Americans would mostly be living by hunter-gathering or by agriculture. Africa also would have been largely composed of hunter-gathering or agricultural societies.
The Far East was little known to westerners, but India, China and Japan had highly civilised and complex societies, with strong social hierarchies.
Where does wealth come from? why is there more money now than in the past?
Sometimes I think I understand economics but I don't... where does money come from?
Do you actually make money on the stock markets or is it just money moving from one place to another??
I worded that last question wrong. Sorry.
Question answered by twstedlogic
Money is simply a medium of exchange. You could simply print money and there'd be more money (its value would decline though). What really CREATES wealth is productivity. For example, Nike can make MORE shoes per hour now than a shoemaker would 200 years ago. So productivity has gone up and hence the economy grows. Consider this, suppose I was an accountant 200 years ago and I was exchanging my service for shoes (I'm basically trading with the shoemaker). Since there were no computers back then, I would work slowly and since the shoemaker was also working slowly, the trade we have made (shoes vs my service) isn't really worth a lot. But now, I can work on a computer and the shoemaker has high tech machinery to make shoes. So I do more work, and he produces more shoes. And when we make the trade, I get more shoes and he gets more work out of me. So as you can see...more products and services are being produced and traded. More wealth basically means...more goods and services. The reason we use money is simply because you can spend it the way you want to. Maybe I don't want shoes in exchange for my service. Maybe I want to buy something else. I mean why would I want to be paid in SHOES ? I'd have to exchange them anyways...for food, clothing and whatever else I might want. Thats why we have money. You can do what you want with it.
The same applies to Stock markets.When a company makes a profit it gives you a part of it (dividend). Also, as the PRODUCTIVITY and profit of the company goes up, the stock price increases. So its not necessarily imaginary money...it is real. But financial markets are a bit different. For example, if the public THINKS a company is going to do well, the stock price might rise (a bubble). Its a bubble because its not real...Prices have gone up because of public sentiment...not an actual increase in profit or productivity.
