We have studied a diverse group of environmental issues during our course. Many of these issues can be directly linked to a variety of environmental challenges/problems. In addition, many of these issues affect various direct/indirect environmental values that are important to all people. The process to create policies that effectively and efficiently address these environmental issues is complex and difficult. In your Final Paper you will be asked to discuss, analyze, and evaluate one of the following environmental issues and then recommend a policy to address the issue.
Choose an environmental issue that interests you from the list below:

  • Preventing loss of biodiversity
  • Maintaining clean water supplies
  • Developing new energy sources
  • Proper Solid and hazardous waste disposal
  • Sustainable uses of public lands

Please note that climate change and air quality are not options for the Final Paper because students will write a short paper during Week Two, which focuses on those policy areas.
As explained in the instructions to your Final Paper, your paper should have five major sections. For this assignment, you will complete the following sections:

  1. Introduce the thesis and provide a brief overview of the main points of the rest of your paper.
  2. Describe your issue and explain how and why the three environmental challenges/problems are associated with this issue.
  3. Explain how and why the three environmental challenges/problems associated with your issue impact direct and/or indirect environmental values.
  4. Recommend a policy  that will effectively and efficiently address the three environmental challenges/problems associated with your issue and evaluate the social, political, economic, and environmental pros/cons of implementing your policy.
  5. Conclude your paper with a brief review of your main points and overall argument/thesis.

The paper must be 10 to 12 pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. You must use at least six scholarly sources (at least three from the Ashford University Library) other than the course text to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your sources in-text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
