Every year Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) puts out an energy flow

Every year Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) puts out an energy flow chart illustrating the U.S. energy consumption by sector and resource type. Below is the 2021 U.S. Energy Flow Chart:Energy flow chart showing relative distribution of energy resource contribution and sector.
**For our purpose, we’ll round the Quads from 97.3 to an even 100 — that way the values in the chart represent relative percentages.
As you can see, electricity generation accounted for roughly 37% of the U.S. energy consumption in 2021. The energy resources used to generate electricity (and their relative percent contributions) included the following: solar (1.0%), nuclear (8.13%), hydro (2.27%), wind (3.32%), geothermal (0.14%) natural gas (11.6%), coal (9.47%), biomass (0.44%), and petroleum (0.2%). An important note is the amount of rejected energy — two-thirds of the electricity generated was never used (23.7%)!
Nearly one-quarter of our electricity generation comes from fossil fuels (petroleum, coal, natural gas). Fossil fuels are nonrenewable resources, and their consumption introduces carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) into the atmosphere.
What would be your ideal energy mix for electricity generation here in the U.S.? Provide your energy mix with resource contributions adding up to 100%. Do you think your proposed energy mix is sustainable?
**When describing your selection, be sure to include the following information:
Descriiption of your energy mix and why you chose this particular distribution.
Descriiption of the sustainability of this proposal.
Discussion of two classmates’ topic, including at least one advantage and disadvantage of their proposal.
A list of your sources and include in-text citations of where you used information from your sources.

LAKE MICHIGAN LAKEFRONT EROSION – Kenosha County You constructed your home on

LAKE MICHIGAN LAKEFRONT EROSION – Kenosha County

You constructed your home on Lake Michigan lakefront property within the legally zoned distance away from the lake shore. However, the high lake levels are causing bluff erosion on your property (which gets worse every year), and now your home is at risk of falling in the lake! The city has ordered you to move out of your home, and you are now faced with legal and financial decisions as to the value of your property and whether it can ever be built on again. You conduct your own research to determine how to mitigate or reverse this process.

FORMAT GUIDELINES:

Note: Read these guidelines carefully and follow them closely! Make sure you include five separate sections (A through E) as outlined below.

A.) NARRATIVE: Write a brief technical narrative explaining how you might research and eventually solve your chosen problem. You are not expected to actually solve the problem, but to explain how it could be solved. Your narrative should be clearly written, concise, well-organized, and logical. Your narrative will be graded on grammar, spelling, and structure. At minimum, your narrative should include a statement of the problem, an argument/discussion on ways to solve the problem, supporting details for your argument, and a concluding statement. You may also include additional details, questions, or problems pertaining to your chosen scenario. Your narrative should not exceed three pages, double-spaced. (15 pts)

B.) POTENTIAL DATA: LIST at least four types of geologic data that could be used to solve your problem. This could include things like groundwater maps, elevation data, etc. (4 pts)
C.) PROFESSIONALS: LIST at least four types of geologists and/or other related professionals that could potentially help solve your problem. This could include professionals like hydrogeologists, city planners, etc. (4 pts)

D.) RESOURCES & AGENCIES: LIST at least four potential resources or agencies that could help solve your problem. This could include agencies like the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. (4 pts)

E.) REFERENCES: LIST at least three references you used to complete this assignment. DO NOT use Wikipedia or other wiki sites as references. When posting webpage links, make sure they link directly to the information you are referencing. (3 pts)

Attached please find the unconfined compression test data. For your lab calculations, please include:

1. Normal stress versus normal strain curve; identify unconfined compressive strength qu
2. Mohr circle at failure, where minor principal stress at failure = 0 and major principal stress at failure = qu; determine undrained shear strength Su (i.e., Su = qu/2).
3. Consistency of the specimen tested (see Table 12.4 in the textbook)
Thank you.
