Population and Society

Need help with my Geography question – IĀ’m studying for my class.

Answer the following questions for this week.

1. Explain Prisoner’s Dilemma and the Tragedy of the Commons. What is Hardin’s theory on the issues and how did his article ‘The Tragedy of the Commons’ address them?

2. Explain environmental ethics. What two environmental beliefs govern the relationship between Western civilization and the natural world? What are your views on how theorists should treat ethics when it comes to the environment and animals?

For the articles below, pick one (or both) and write at least a paragraph about your thoughts about the articles.

These are interesting articles I found that pertain to what we are going to study regarding population and the future of the Earth.

The first article in the New York Times, called ‘Americans Are Having Fewer Babies. They Told Us Why’ by Claire Cain Miller (you can google the article if the link does not work for you) was very interesting to read that, while the main reasons more people in the poll weren’t having children because of finances, that it wasn’t too far down the line of reasons that people stated they were concerned about global instability, climate change and population growth. What do you think about the article?

The second article talks about couples who are deciding not to have children at all, because of issues involving our Earth, conservation, overpopulation and how some see first-hand how they are being directly affected. Do you agree or disagree with their decision?

Here is the link for this article: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jun/20/give-up-having-children-couples-save-planet-climate-crisis (Links to an external site.)

These are only some of the hundreds of articles about issues with conservation and the future of our Earth and the issues that come with development and population increases. Please keep the conversations civil and respectful. You can disagree, but please be kind to your classmates, we are all entitled to our own opinions. Keeping discussions open and seeing other people’s points of view are how we can understand each other better and maybe learn something new!
