Discuss Environmental Issues We Face Today
This week, our readings have introduced us to several pressing environmental issues we face today. Briefly describe an environmental issue that resonates with you the most. This can be an issue that you have encountered where you live or have previously lived, that you have watched a documentary about or read about in the news, or that you are simply interested in.
Describe the issue and discuss its effects on ecosystems, human health, and the economy. Additionally, select one historic figure covered in our readings this week and briefly describe his or her viewpoint on the issue.
Be sure to write a detailed main post here, presenting supporting facts and evidence from reliable sources. When responding to your classmates, please add to the discussion with a fact-supported addition, opinion, gentle correction, or example, citing reliable sources.
