This link about is the instructions for what has to be completed. ^
The topic is on whether Nuclear Energy can be a viable option instead of fossil fuels and coal usage. My lense on
this problem is the environmental impacts of using Nuclear Power. This needs a minimum of 1200 words and a max
of 1300. I am currently taking AP Seminar and am a sophmore in high school. I have already sent a link of the articles I have gathered with JSTOR. These articles must be used in the paper and additional articles relating to this topic
can be added. Please make this paper like a high schooler wrote it. Sorry for the such strict rules of this paper, but this is due tomorrow at 11:59 for me.

The next 3 paragraphs will each make a separate and distinct point that backs up your position in the first paragraph.

The Paper Assignment (due right before the first live session of this assignment):
You are to write a 2-3 page letter (Times New Roman 12 point font, double spaced, 1 inch margins), to the Governor of New York, detailing whether to allow natural gas hydrofracking in the State of New York and if so what safeguards you would recommend. Write the letter from the point of view of the stakeholder you are assigned by your session leaders. The first paragraph will introduce you and your position (you can be creative here and even make up a character in your stakeholder group if you like). The next 3 paragraphs will each make a separate and distinct point that backs up your position in the first paragraph. You must justify your point with fact/science (not just an emotional plea). The last paragraph will contain your summary and your recommendations to the Governor on whether to allow hydrofracking operations in New York and under what circumstances (i.e. regulations). The quality and clarity of your three talking points along with proper grammar, sentence structure and spelling will be assessed for grading purposes. The paper requires at least three (3) mainstream references. Mainstream means a peer reviewed science journal, government agency, an article in a major magazine or newspaper, a science based advocacy group or information posted by industry. You may use a separate page for your citations that will not count against your page count or you can use footnotes but you must follow APA citation style. http://libguides.gwu.edu/content.php?pid=8881&sid=57324.
Below you will find links to resources for all stakeholder groups as well as sources for general information on hydrofracking. You are certainly not limited to these sites, but they are provided to help you get started.
* This is the Stakeholder group I’m representing –
” Environmental Conservation Organization (Environmental NGO)”
Starter Websites: Here are a few websites to get you started. There are many sites out there so feel free to venture on your own but be a cautious consumer of information. As with anything, not all sites are trustworthy.

Uses 2 examples from lecture (e.g. treatment of specific animals, pollution costs, transportation costs, difference in chemical dependence, etc).

For this writing prompt, you will prepare an essay. In general, the prompt requires a 2–3-page essay (typed, double-spaced, 12 pt. font, 1-inch margins) to answer effectively.
The best essays will be detailed and thorough (answering all parts of each question), as well as clearly and cleanly presented (i.e., well-written, spell-checked, etc.). You do not need to provide a separate bibliography if you make it clear in your in-text citations where the material in question was taken from, e.g.: (Leopold, p. 130).
You will submit your assignments through the Canvas site in the “Assignments” sidebar link or through the relevant Module listing. Just a reminder: do your own work and make sure to cite any lines of text that are taken from another source! Turnitin—the plagiarism checking software—will catch you.
INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE AND EATING ETHICALLY
PROMPT:
In The Ethics of What We Eat, Singer and Mason discuss the “conscientious omnivore” and the “best defense” for eating meat (an argument attributed to writers such as Michael Pollan). Briefly describe the main points of this argument and why it is claimed by some to be an ethically more acceptable case for animal agriculture. In your view, does the model of the conscientious omnivore demonstrate respect for the lives of farm animals and the environment [refer specifically to at least two parts in a lecture from the animal agriculture module]? Why/why not? Then, reiterate a strong animal rights position (i.e., like Tom Regan’s) and decide if the “best defense” would satisfy such a view. Why/why not? Lastly, briefly reflect on the extent to which you found yourself persuaded by either the animal welfare or animal rights positions covered in this class or if you were at all (no wrong answers to this last part here).
Rubric:
“best defense”/conscientious omnivorism: Comprehensive response that correctly defines conscientious omnivorism as “best defense” for meat consumption. Discusses at least 2 ways in which conscientious omnivorism is ethically superior to factory farming (e.g., more humane, more healthy, more environmentally sustainable, less polluting, less chemically dependent).
Demonstrates Respect?: Takes a position and discusses ways in which conscientious omnivorism can either be interpreted as respectful of animals and the environment or how it is deficient. Uses 2 examples from lecture (e.g. treatment of specific animals, pollution costs, transportation costs, difference in chemical dependence, etc).
Tom Regan and Animal Rights: Correctly conveys Regan’s Animal Rights perspective and discuss how he would still disapprove of conscientious omnivorism (e.g. by arguing for the cessation of animal agriculture all together [no cages, not bigger cages]).

For the final assignment, you will apply what you have learned about water, the water cycle, and laws related to water to a real life example where these topics/concepts are at the center.

For the final assignment, you will apply what you have learned about water, the water cycle, and laws related to water to a real life example where these topics/concepts are at the center.
Watch Dark Waters
Take on the role of an Environmental Scientist gathering evidence and documentation to support a strong court case.
As you watch the film of your choice, be sure to take notes related to the topics/concepts covered in this course:
1. The role of water
2. The water cycle
3. Infiltration and soil water
4. Surface water and groundwater
5. Water Quality and Treatment
6. Federal Legislation and Water Law
Create a slideshow OR an essay (your choice) to convey the information needed to answer the following questions/prompt. Use the film as your source/citation, along with any other research you may need to do. (If there is some other way you would like to present the information, please touch base with me before getting started.)
Questions to answer:
What is the problem? Who is affected by the problem? Who is involved in solving/creating the problem?
What are some things you already know about this case? Be sure not to confuse what you know with what you assume.
As an Environmental Scientist, what is your job?
What can you do to help solve the case (even if you already know the ending)? Brainstorm and list the things that you would like to test or dig into.
Now, you have lab results from the water samples taken from the well water. The water containing TCE is a solvent used in industrial processes and is a Volatile Organic Compound. TCE is toxic and carcinogenic. You take this case on as the lead Environmental Scientist.
1. How should you test the water to determine where the TCE came from?
2. Where should you begin?
3. What variable(s) should you take into consideration? Think about earth materials, landforms, chemicals and solubility, effects on humans, etc.
4. What is your plan to test the water?
5. Were there industries in the area that are no longer present? Are any industries present currently?
6. How could you be sure about who caused the contamination?
7. What would you do if you were called to testify in court as the lead environmental scientist?
Disadvantaged communities often do not have access to environmental scientists. What are the implications of this difference between industries and communities?
The manufacturing of goods we use every day has environmental and human health impacts. How could environmental science be used to improve the sustainability of creating these products?
Conclusion:
What was the final outcome of the case? Are residents still being impacted by this today? What does this imply for our actions today and the future of our communities even with all of the environmental awareness and laws that we have now?
