Questions will come from a combination of the readings and lecture, but more on the lecture. Markets and Commodities by Robbins et al Neoliberalism: An Idea That Swallowed the World by S. Metcalf What were some policy outcomes of the environmental movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s? o National Environmental Policy act of 1970 (NEPA) o EPA o Clean air and clean water act What arguments might be made for why, in that era, the environmental movement took off? o Post war affluence o Creation of new forms of hazard o Development of ecology as a scientific discipline What's the "environmental Kuznets curve"? What does it have to do with the notion that vastly increased affluence in the U.S. enabled the environmental movement? How might somebody critique the idea of the environmental Kuznets curve"? o The environmental Kuznets curve is a hypothesized relationship between environmental quality and economic development o As people in the US have more money, there are more carbon emissions. o Some might say that it has nothing at all do with income of people and rather income of companies.

What happened in the Love Canal controversy of the late 1970s? o Love canal was a place where dangerous material was prepared. Eventually, a chemical company covered the canal and sold the land for $1. o The chemicals later caused birth defects and ruined the entire environment. What's deep ecology? How are those who advocated it (such as groups like Earth First! and the Environmental Liberation Front), different from the citizens involved in Love Canal? What was the 'Wise Use' movement? o Ecology is radical environmentalism. o The wise use movement was a group helping the expansion of private property rights and reduction of government regulation of publicly help property. How would you define environmental justice? When and why did it start as a movement? How is it different from the mainstream environmental movement? More specifically, how does it differ from "deep ecology"? How might we explain the distinct correlation between toxic waste facilities and low-income, minority communities?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
