Cara Heenan Sustainable Environments Assignment 1 1. Hardin’s key concern is with the issues regarding human population growth and how it plays a role in the decreasing amount of natural resources the Earth’s general welfare. He states that the world is biophysically finite, meaning the Earth does not have an infinite amount of resources to support the growing population. Another part of his key concern is the fact that the issue of the Commons cannot be solved by any technical solution. That being said, in order to come up with a solution for the “commons” system, we must look beyond simply improving food production technology and search for a solution involving looking beyond the Commons as simple resources. 2. Hardin’s evidence is presented clearly through the flaws in both the assumptions made about the Commons, as well as and general model of the Tragedy of the Commons itself. He states that the generalization of the Commons stems from a faulty historical case study in which there is no call for a change in human values or morality.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
