Lesson 13, Assignment 2
When explaining the concept of the life cycle analysis to ten people, many of them
wanted to learn more about this concept.
I think a lot of these students were interested in
finding out more information because the majority of them believe in sustainability. The
everyday choice that I asked the subjects to compare was the trip to campus by bus or
private vehicle scenario.
, class of 2009, and an AEM major, chose the bus because it produced less
waste. Person 1 believed it produced less waste because more people could ride on the
bus than in a private vehicle, whereas several cars would have to be taken to
accommodate the same amount of people.
, class of 2007, a BEE major also believes that the bus would be better because
it could hold more passengers. She believes that by riding the Tcat buses students will
save more oil because less people will be driving their cars. She also believes these buses
should be used more often, especially during the school week.
, class of 2010, an ILR major believes that the bus in more efficient.
he believes that private vehicles could be used as long as there are more than 2-3 people
in the vehicle. He favors car pooling because he doesn’t believe that the Tcat service on
campus is reliable. Nevertheless, he concluded that overall that using the bus more
energy and fuel would be saved.
, class of 2008, an Africana Major, thought that a bus would be better because
private vehicles produce more pollution. She believes that private vehicles will emit more
pollution overall because if there are more vehicles traveling to class everyday emissions
and traffic will increase.
, class of 2009, a Government major believes that the best way to travel to and
from campus is the bus service. She believes that the bus relieves traffic and causes less
private vehicles to be on the road.
She stated that if more vehicles were on the road, that
traffic will increase, causing the commute to campus to take longer, which will in return
, class of 2008, an undecided student, in my opinion provided me with one of
the most illogical response.
He believes that private vehicles are more environmentally
friendly and emits less pollution then buses.
His justification for is that “private vehicles
are weigh less and are smaller than buses, so in return emit less pollution”.
, class of 2008, an undecided student believes that the bus service is better
because it keeps less private vehicles on the road and reduces emissions.
, class of 2009, a Hotel Major, chose the bus because he does not know how to
drive and believe pollution will be reduced because of the bus service.
