Environmental Policy

Assignment 2: Environmental Policy 

Due Week 10 and worth 120 points

There are several environmental laws, regulations, and policies that currently influence your life, and they include the following: 

  • NEPA
  • The Clean Air Act
  • The Clean Water Act
  • The Endangered Species Act
  • The Superfund
  • CITES
  • The Montreal Protocol
  • The Basel Convention

Choose one (1) of these environmental regulations, or another policy that interests you; then, research your chosen regulation or policy’s requirements and environmental and economic impacts.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Describe three (3) key elements of the regulation or policy you chose. Specifically, discuss who is affected and what actions they are required to undertake, including federal and state agencies and specific industries, and how these requirements are enforced.
  2. Assess three (3) effects this regulation or policy had on our environment. Next, quantify its effects, if possible, to analyze whether or not the regulation had the desired effect on the environment.
  3. Discuss three (3) economic effects of your chosen policy or regulation. Next, describe the direct costs of implementation, as well as the effect the regulation has had on economic growth. If possible, find a benefits/cost analysis that will provide you with objective analyses of this regulation’s economic impact.
  4. Speculate whether or not you believe that this policy or regulation has been successful overall. Next, debate whether or not your chosen policy or regulation has promoted environmental benefits or outweighed its economic costs. Lastly, determine whether you would recommend renewing this policy or regulation when it comes to its expiration date, or whether you should let the policy or regulation expire. Justify your response.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality resources / references in this assignment, in addition to the course text. Note: Wikipedia and personal blogs do not qualify as quality resources.
  6. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements: 
    • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
    • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, your professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Assess the various methods used to understand natural phenomena and the human impact on it, and analyze the steps taken to protect the environment.
  • Analyze factors influencing the use and conservation of environmental resources.
  • Analyze the effect of human populations on various ecosystems, including agriculture, urbanization, waste management, and pollution.
  • Critically evaluate sources of information about environmental science and communicate them effectively.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in environmental science.
  • Write clearly and concisely about environmental science using proper writing mechanics.

Dendrochronology Lab

1-need 1 page of cover sheet-2 paragraphs:

  First paragraph:  What did you do in lab?  (methodology)

  Second paragraph:  How does it relate to climate change/ the lecture? (why it is important; why tree ring is used…)

2-answer questions in lab (lab is attached)

Q1. Did the satellite data confirm your tree ring analysis for each location? Describe yes or no. If not, what might account for the differences between the two measurements? 

Q2. Can you suggest data sets for other parameters that you could check that might support either the tree ring or the satellite data, if they do not agree? 

Q3. Which of your data (tree ring analysis or the satellite data) best reflects year-long changes in precipitation? Explain your answer in terms of your data.
