1 - http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/poaching?r=75&src=ref&ch=dic

#2 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latifundia

#3 - https://ixquick.com/do/search?query=Venezuela+provided+free+oil+to+poor+people&cat=web&pl=chrome&language=english

#4 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endangered_Species_Act

Do the others the same way.

#12 - "Global warming" is a political code word with no relation to reality. It has taken 30 years for scientists to agree that there might actually be some such thing as global warming, but all the planets in the solar system are getting it at the same time, so it has no connection with what people on Earth do.
