A. See the U.S. EPA site, S. Anatha. They've funded countless reports on the subject. Download 4 or 5 of them, take a few pages from each, shuffle them together, and turn it in as your thesis. Return the favor by uploading your shuffling of the pages; it will save us U.S. taxpayers the million dollars that another beltway bandit would have charged to do the same :-)
