Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs
This poster discusses research on rebuilding the world with green BRICs. Specifically, the international community needs to collectively explore green, energy-efficient ways of living and producing that include (1) switching from the use of fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy alternatives and more efficient systems, and, (2) closing the gap between rich and poor nations to alleviate poverty, especially with respect to energy-poverty in developing countries. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86113/
Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs
This paper discusses research on rebuilding the world with green BRICs. Developed nations grew rich, in part, through over exploiting natural resources, dumping greenhouse gases and other pollutants into the atmosphere, and encouraging consumerist lifestyles with little concern for the long-term effects on our collective home, plant Earth. Today, these patterns are being replicated in developing nations. In countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRICs), there is a rising global middle class that desires to live an American-style of life, complete with cars, refrigerators, air conditioners, and other sources of pollution. Factors contributing to this social, economical, and global problem include inadequate responses to climate change, increases in global consumption, and dangerous dependency on non-renewable resources of energy. What is needed is a Green Energy Revolution, which includes development of an energy policy in developing countries. Specifically, the international community needs to collectively explore green, energy-efficient ways of living and producing that include (1) switching from the use of fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy alternatives and more efficient systems, and (2) focusing on developing and implementing green policy in these countries. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc94271/
Uganda: The Pearl of Africa: A Shattered Nation
This presentation accompanies a paper discussing research on Uganda. In 1908, a young Winston Churchill, during his travels declared Uganda to be the pearl of Africa.

Uganda: The Pearl of Africa: A Shattered Nation
This paper discusses research on Uganda. In 1908, a young Winston Churchill, during his travels declared Uganda to be the pearl of Africa. One hundred years later, that pearl has become lacking in luster and lost in the midst of all the baggage Uganda now carries with it. Today, conflict has marred the landscape, the people and the future of Uganda. Peace, though it may seem elusive at best, needs to be achieved as it currently affects the lives of everyone, including women, youth, and those living in Internally Displace Persons (IDP) camps. Both the local and internationally community will need to have a hand in bringing back the luster to Uganda. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc84329/
