Geology Esssay

Where do you get your water?  Over the course of the next two days I want you to record every drop of water you drink.  Where does it come from.  Be sure to identify the water you drink as bottled water, tap water, filtered tap water, water fountain water, etc.  Keep a log of all the water you drink (including any water you may use in cooking) and record that log on the attached worksheet. 
Write a short 2 to 3 paragraph reflective essay answering the following questions:

Based on your      past experience, does this consumption pattern represent your normal water      usage?  If it does not, what is your normal water usage      pattern? 
Where do you get      most of the water you drink on a daily basis?
Were you      suddenly required to cut your water consumption in half (due to increased      cost or limited supply), how would you cope?  In what ways would you      have to adjust your behavior to accommodate this change and would it be      difficult for you?

Each paragraph should average 4 to 5 full sentences.


WOP3 Coral Reef Degradation Instructions ( in the document ) 

WOP3 is SO important, I can hardly state it enough; what would we think of ourselves if we were really and truly responsible for the complete loss of the world’s coral reefs? That may be overstating the case, but right now, the evidence for loss of coral reefs is not pretty at all. Please read the Instructions file, research through your text and the links provided (plus any other resources that you choose), and start your postings here!
