Vocablet of the Day: Ethic

As we celebrate Earth Day this week, let’s look at one of the ways the United States is attempting to inspire conservation efforts.

Study ethic now in VocabNetwork’s U.S. Earth Efforts studylist.

In order to effect real environmental change, the United States is taking steps to create a new set of principles of right and wrong accepted by a group.

It is hoped that the new landmarks will ignite Americans’ love of their country’s natural wonders, creating an environmental ethic geared toward conservation.  Changing the public ethic about environmental issues is one way to deeply influence people’s behavior.

The ethic-America the Beautiful Vocablet highlights the efforts of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior to influence the public’s mind about the environment and instill an appreciation for nature.

Do you think this new ethic will take hold?  Or do more drastic steps need to be taken?

What’s HOT Studylist: Earth Day 2012

There’s a huge mass of garbage, much of it tiny plastic pieces, swirling around the Pacific Ocean.  The United States recently had the hottest March on record.  Gas prices are steadily rising, storms are growing increasingly severe, and experts are urging immediate action to combat global climate change.

What’s HOT (no pun intended) this week: Earth Day 2012.

Read about one of the most polluted cities in the world, miners that are depleting the already scarce coral reefs, and diminished Arctic ice floes.

Happily, there are also new green energy technologies being developed and efforts at energy conservation around the world.

Head over to VN to study, test, play, and track your progress to mastery with this week’s What’s HOT studylist, Earth Day 2012.

Earth Day is this Sunday, April 22, and we’ll be posting Earth Day content all week.  Keep checking back!
