POL 310 Week 1 DQ 1 Environmental Values & Policy

Identify an environmental amenity from the following list:
•    Clean air 
•    Earth’s climate 
•    Ocean health 
•    Wilderness areas 
•    Endangered species 
•    Clean drinking water 
•    Old growth forests 

Look at Figure 1.1 in Chapter One of Environmental Policies. Identify the different values associated with that amenity.  Then, identify a policy tension between the amenity that you choose and a threat to that amenity. For example, clean air is threatened by economic interests that pollute the air (e.g., industries that do not use “green” technology when emitting pollution, automobiles, large-scale confined feeding animal operations, etc.); wilderness areas are threatened by gas and oil interests, pressures to build roads in roadless areas, etc. 

Also, discuss the ways that different worldviews (e.g., biocentricism, anthropocentrism) play into the controversy surrounding the issue. In your opinion, have lawmakers adequately protected the value of the environmental amenity? Why or why not? Which worldview is present in your response to part E of this question?
