Week 3: Assignment
In each week, the learning assignment is designed to demonstrate your competence with the
Terminal Course Objectives of the course. Prior to working on the assignment, you should read
through the week’s chapters and lecture.
Clearly identify your work with your name, the date, the week number and the assignment
name, and upload work to the Dropbox.
The questions are designed to probe the higher levels of thinking and learning, such as
analyzing, evaluating, and creating, and so there often are no correct answers. Instead of
focusing and who wins or loses the case, you should analyze, evaluate, and create alternative
solutions to the various issues presented while arguing and debating the connections
between business, law, politics, and ethics.
Terminal Course Objective: E
Video Case Study: Environmental Protection—Environmental Victory
Watch the video case study and then write a one- to two-page reflective paper (double
spaced) on the following questions while discussing the connections between business, law,
politics, and ethics.
1. The idea of global warming has not been universally accepted. Discuss how the law must
balance competing scientific opinions and make decisions in light of uncertainty. How should
this be done?
2. Discuss the different stakeholders who have concern in this situation. What are their
interests, and which stakeholder should have the priority position?
3. Environmental law is both federal and state-controlled. Discuss the effect on state
regulations if the federal government, through the Environmental Protection Agency, changes
the standards for air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.
