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 a 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.
