POL 310 Week 1 DQ 1 Environmental Values & Policy
Environmental Values & Policy. Identify an environmental amenity from the following list:

a. Clean air

b. Earth’s climate

c. Ocean health

d. Wilderness areas

e. Endangered species

f. Clean drinking water

g. 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?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s)
and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts
by Day 7. Do you agree with your classmates’ assessments regarding whether lawmakers have adequately protected the
value of the environmental amenity identified in their postings? Why or why not?
