Wherever there is a population (especially developed populations), there are waste products. Discuss some of the current means of waste disposal and the pros and cons of each. Also include any political and social aspects in waste disposal. How can “smart growth” in cities help to curb the amount of pollution and the effects of concentrated populations?
During the course, we have looked at how things are, how the global community is affected by changes in the environment, how things are changing (some for the good, some not so good), and what the future might hold for the environment. Chapters 23 and 24 look at the economics behind these changes. Discuss the pros and cons of regulation of industry, protection of species, and resource distribution. Why haven’t all businesses, farmers, cultures gone to these more efficient and environmentally friendly methods?
