Environmental Justice

Topic: Choose A or B.
A) Environmental Justice. 1) Explain what it means, and 2) discuss a situation where environmental justice is relevant. (In other words, provide a case study where environmental justice applies.) The case study can be one discussed in class, or another of your choosing.

B) Global Warming. 1) Summarize the state of scientific understanding about global warming (i.e. what it is, what causes it, projected impacts), and 2) discuss a specific impact of global warming (like sea-level rise, or another), including how to mitigate it and adapt to its impacts.

Short papers should be approximately 5 pages of text double-spaced, with standard margins. Your paper should use at least 2 sources from course readings and/or films, and you may cite additional quality sources that you deem relevant.

Write in your own words, providing citations for all information you obtain from other sources (i.e., not just quotes).
