For your final paper, you will need to select a class topic of your choosing to research. Your topic must have been approved to receive credit.
*THE TOPIC IS GEOTHERMAL ENERGY*
The topic you selected will need to relate to a class topic, provide meaningful insight to what the technology is, how it works, how it benefits the renewable energy sector, how it will impact the non-renewable energy sector, and how it will benefit the country overall. Basically, I want to know what the technology is, how it works, if it really helps, and if it cost effective.
The paper will need to be presented as a formal research paper that uses scholarly sources to support YOUR opinions about the questions. It must have a reference list.
I will not place a page limit/minimum on the paper but would expect the papers to be 4-5 pages not including the reference or cover pages.

What Happens To NYC’s 3.2 Million Tons Of Trash | Big Business | Business Insider
From watching the video I learned that NYC waste is not actually processed in the city itself. Instead it is sent further away from the city to be dealt with. It takes thousands of workers to get rid of waste. There is an estimate of 3.2 million tons of trash per year, making it at least 450-600 tons per day. In order to get this process started, almost 2 thousand sanitation trucks are sent out for collection every morning at 5am. The trucks get dumped at the waste station and eventually load the waste into containers beneath the ground, making transport easier. The responsibility for getting rid of the waste gets pasted over to multiple places before the process is actually complete. There are thousands of people who work together to make this happen. Finally towards the end of the process of getting rid of waste, the trash is burned in big incinerators at 2000 F. After this process is complete, the leftover waste that has now turned into metal pieces and ash are now used to make cars and cover landfills. The outcome is that only 30% of NYC waste turns into energy, the rest is actual waste.
MAKING MONEY: Recycling – Turning Waste into valuable raw materials | WELT Documentary
There is money being made from the waste we leave behind. Recycling is a process that turns materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and transforms them into new products. Materials such as glass, aluminum, paper, plastics, and textiles can be recycled, and doing so consumes significantly less energy than producing these same goods from virgin materials.

Choose an issue in environmental justice that you think is contentious but about

Choose an issue in environmental justice that you think is contentious but about which you have strong feelings. It could be something like risk assessment, brownfields redevelopment, the relationship between environmental justice and sustainability, the role of experts or the debate about gentrification and environmental justice. Using class readings and other resources, write a 5-page opinion paper in support of your position. You should source at least 5 other readings in addition to required class readings. Note, these readings do not have to be peer- reviewed scholarly articles. Magazine articles and “grey” literature pieces (by think tanks, advocacy groups, and others) are acceptable.
Another acceptable option for this assignment is to write a book review on a book that is related to environmental justice. Your book review should also be 5-pages double-spaced. In your review, you should:
Describe the book’s major themes and arguments
Critically appraise the book’s methods and conclusions
Discuss how the book’s themes relate to the themes in the course readings and discussions
Your recommendations to other EJ students on what they can/should learn from this book
