I am taking CIS 002 online class at DeAnza College in summer 2012. Prof. Valerie Taylor is our instructor, and she uses Wikieducator in the class. I hope I will learn and have better understanding on computer information system.

Midterm Topic-Ensure Environmental Sustainability

We need to act quickly to response for our blue planet.

Animal populations are disappearing at alarming rate, protecting animal species also contributes to a thriving, healthy planet for people’s health and well-being, and preserve the forest that slow climate change and filter water to ocean that provide more and 1/6 of the world’s food. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conducts ecological risk assessments to determine the ecological effects or toxicity of a pesticide and its breakdown products to various terrestrial and aquatic animals and plants and the chemical fate and transport of a pesticide in soil, air, and water resources. Environmental laws will not be effective unless facilities comply. Pesticides are regulated under several laws, primarily the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act which authorizes EPA to oversee the registration, distribution, sale, and use of pesticides. The Act applies to all types of pesticides, including insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, rodenticides, and antimicrobials.
