ENV222H1
Prof: MacDonald
INDIVIDUAL LECTURE BREAKDOWN
Jan 13
notion of environment as being being found in all spheres of human activity
Jan 18
categorizing environmental problems
message: there really is no agreed upon means of categorizing environmental problems
profs suggestion: land, water, air, species
Jan 20
Chronology of impacts: acceleration of impacts
the spike/ acceleration
we have not had the time to develop the values or institutions that are needed
spatially: goes back to Europe where imperialism and the industrial revolution have its origins
some implications
distancing: we buy a product but don’t take into account the way it is made and the impacts on that side of the
world
Jan 25
some people view population growth as beneficial
Jan 27
basic question of consumption - why do we consume?
demand: what is it? where does it come from?
once we have met our basic needs - it has psychological implications
this lecture is tied very closely to the Capitalism lecture of February 15
The Comor reading of Feb 15: basic argument
loss of identity which had existed in Feudal times and a new class the Bourgeoisie got its identity through
consumption
the need for identity leads us to consume
Feb 1
the difficulty that industrialized societies have with the introduction of new technology
in the 19th century (when the chemical industry began to expand) and in the 20th century w/the introduction of
nuclear as a source of power there were no controls
when biotechnology came more recently society had begun to have these controls
technology is part of the problem because if new technologies are able to meet demand there will be powerful
forces pushing them in to the system
we do not have effective systems for evaluating their impacts before they are established
Feb 3
nuclear as an example of technology which may be problem or solution
centered on renewable energy
renewable energy as a solution but also the barriers of bringing them in
the political power of the fossil fuel industry
basic theme: yes technology may well be part of the solution but it may not be readily available
