ENV222 Exam Review:
Normative vs analytical (population is not the most important cause b/c…) looking for
more analytical
Need to memorize authors and titles and dates and the overall subject matter of
the reading – some sense of the major line of argument that the author made
(listing)
Use the lecture notes as a guide – more likely to put something on the exam that
has been referred to in the notes
More on the northern countries and Canada – tried to be global and 10,000 years
agricultural rev to present
Interaction b/t human and nature – how do you define nature and natural and the
def of ‘environment – that which is outside of oneself – but is that natural?
Natural and non-human – extracting raw materials and using raw materials and
putting them back out
5 parts – interdis env studies; implications of human domination of nature (going
back 10000 years – chronological picture and increase in human impacts on
nature – settlement and then the invention of power within society; `1300-1700s:
two turning points; civil society lectures: deep chronology of what was happening
before WWII and after; expansion of the problem of env from local to global and
in terms of human activity to the point where it is part of virtually all human
activities; moral responsibility that humans now have – Collin Powellif you
break it you buy it- if you have that kind of power you have moral responsibility
part 2: causes: mainstream vs radical (issues of equity and power); all of these
causes are interconnected; technology and science are both problems and
solutions – interconnectedness; technology is not just the tool it is also the social
system ie the invention of the factory system was not just the invention of the
machinery but also the social system; technology as the source of the problem and
the solution – let us do what we are doing now but with increased efficiency
(driving motor vehicles)
capitalism and per capita growth: encouragement of risk taking –economic growth
it is not seen as part of the problem ; per capita consumption – demand:
distinction b/t needs and wants – what is the notion of demands
anthropocentricism: humans are higher than nature; bioequity and then power we
need changes within – reflected in Becker et al reading – giving ppl more access
to decisions being made; connections b/t power relations b/t north and south –
giving south more say – HOW DOES POWER PLAY OUT IN OUR SUBJECT
MATTER?
Need to know the def of” individual, civil state, etc chronology and the
emergence of concern; setting standards and forcing standards, the market and the
firm – the aspectsof the firm that will look to improve the env, committed to
economic growth; firm part of the problem and solution (can the market solve the
problem? Not by itself but can give policies)
