Dr. Ihab Anwar is a foreign exchange student who is currently attending the University of Rhode Island. Ihab has been a marine biology major ever since enrolling in college, as he has always wanted to take a more active role in conserving ocean habitats. But now he has decided to attack this issue from a different angle, and be more involved in the policy making rather than the actual research that is used to form those arguments. Which is why Ihab Anwar is thinking about switching majors to political science.
Anwar is interested in this field because he feels he can have a bigger impact on helping our environment by using his wits, communication skills and his ability to think about the stakeholders in an issue and foreshadow where the opposition would inevitably come from. Dr. Ihab Anwar is passionate about protecting our water resources as well as the animals who live in them. He sees the everyday pollution and news about major oil spills and other environmental disasters, and he rejects the notion that notion ca be done about it.
First things first, he issues such as the droughts in California and sees them as much more of a global issue than the status quo appreciates. California provides not only a majority of the United States’ fruit and vegetables, but it also provides these things all over the world; and if it dries up then all of that food production will be gone.
