Assignment 1 applying theory: environmental issues

Your goal for this assignment is to apply an ethical theory to a real-world situation.  You will examine an environmental issue and apply one of the ethical theories to it to understand how human interactions with natural environment raise ethical concerns.  You will do this by preparing and posting a PowerPoint slideshow consisting of 12 slides with a separate section under each slide for notes.

Choose one of the following topics or issues, and rad about it at teh indicated place:

Environmental justice and environmental racism(Read Environmental Justice for All)

Environmental harm, like pollution of air and water(Read Chapter 8 in the textbook).

Waste reduction (Read Chapter 8 in the textbook)

Select one philosphical  theory (ie, ultilitarianism, deonotolgy, or virtue ethics). Consider the following questions selected:

What does the theory tells us about how things operate in the real world?

What is the focus of the theory?  That is, what aspects of everyday life(or what questions) does the theory address?

The focus helps you think about the topical boundaries of the theory.  This course is about ethics and social responsibility, so you should concentrate on the ethical and moral aspect of both the theory and topic you are analyzing.  Address only ethical issues.

How does the theory simplify complex issues to make them more understandable?  Another way to think about this is to consider the concepts that make up the theory.  Identify the concepts and how they are related to each other.

Develop one thesis question that applies your philosophical theory to environmental issue.  You will address this question by developing an argument that links the theory to the issue (through your notes and pictures), so make sure your word your question carefully to accomplish this task.  Indicate this thesis question on your second slide (the one after the title slide).

Next, develop an ethical argument that addresses your question.  Use the text/and or other academic sources to support your position. Build your argument by writing nine clear sentences.  Each Sentence should make one important point about the ethical aspects of the environmental issue you are analyzing and should be placed on each slide.

Make sure your presentation focuses on ethical arguments and avoids personal opinion, arguments based on politics, economics, religion, or topics other than ethics.

Next find a photo or image to illustrate each slide, and post it on the slide above the sentence.  Only use photos that are public domain.Also make sure you cite the source from which you retrieved your photos or images directly underneath the photo on each slide.

The power point should consist of 12 slides.  There should be one one slide for the title page, one slide for your thesis question, nine slides for your arguments and notes and one slide for your references.  Use a  total of 3 academic references.  The assignment must be submitted as a power point presentation.
