the environment, and present us with a brief summary of who, what, where, when, why, and how.
For the discussion, you will want to search through local or regional papers. Find a news story on the environment, and present us with a brief summary of who, what, where, when, why, and how. Then, relate this story to the concepts and theories we have been covering the past couple of weeks. For example, which of the approaches to environmental ethics were evident? Only one, or perhaps did different sides of the story have different approaches? In addressing this discussion, you will likely want to consider the writings of some of the founders of environmental ethics, including those we have already covered in class. Using arguments presented by one (or more) of the the philosophers, please present your thoughts on the underlying environmental ethics related to the story you summarized. Your discussion must use course vocabulary and should present a consideration of who or what has value in this current event story.
Keep in mind this is meant as a scholarly discussion, but it is not a formal essay assignment. The discussions should be engaging and open
