Write one long Paragraph about…
Choose an environmental disaster that was caused, at least in part, by human agency, and that occurred in the past five years. This disaster will be the one you focus on for your final paper.
Find an article that describes the event. In this discussion, post a link to the article, and present a brief summary of the event. The ethical dimensions of an environmental disaster cannot be analyzed until the basic information about what actually happened is understood, so being able to explain the event and its consequences is a crucial first step to performing an ethical analysis.
In your replies to others, you can share additional resources with classmates relevant to their topics. You should also consider whether additional information might be needed to help flesh out the description of their topics.
