Environmental Policies


The the state of Texas

In the environmental health arena, a number of environmental principles or philosophies may guide the work of those who are charged with the creation of policy (including formal and informal policy actors, policy researchers, and policy analysts). In particular, you should be aware of the precautionary principle and be able to apply it in a number of contexts. This discussion is unique in that your Guided Response to your peers actually carries the greater points allocation than the initial posting.

In your initial post to this discussion, look online at credible sources for a local situation in which environmental policy has been overtly (openly) or covertly (behind the scenes) influenced by the precautionary principle. If you cannot find local examples after a diligent search, you may cast your search statewide. For help with identifying credible resources, review the What is CRAAP? (Links to an external site.) and Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) guides from the UAGC library. Once you identify a case, create a discussion post that briefly (approximately 100 words) summarizes the situation, including the details that led you to this conclusion, then give a link to the source. DO NOT specifically identify what you believe to be the precautionary principle indicators.

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and respond to a minimum of two of your peers. In your post, follow the link provided by your peer to the source document and identify the area(s) where you believe the precautionary principle comes into play. Identify as many of the four central components as you can, and describe which, if any, of the components are missing. Lastly, if any of the four central components are missing,

· Evaluate how that affected the actual outcome.

· Evaluate how missing components might have been addressed.

· Conjecture how the story might change if they had been correctly addressed.
