Do you think you are such a person? Why or why not? 6. Lois Gibbs now heads The Center for Health, Environment and Justice. Take a look at their website. If you could have a conversation or interview with Lois Gibbs, what two or three questions would you most want to ask her? Why? How do you think she would answer your questions? What do you think you could learn from her? 7. In “In Our Water”, Frank Kaler and Teddy Kordus raise issues of environmental justice. Kaler talks about getting the justice one can afford and Kordus asks why corporate waste has to be dumped in his backyard rather than that of those corporations’ executives. Do you agree with them or not? Why? One of the DEP officials says that it’s almost impossible to anything in New Jersey because of “NIMBY” syndrome – “not in my backyard”. That is, no one wants to live near environmentally unpleasant activities such as landfills, nuclear power plants, and factories. Given this, where does that leave us? How do we decide fairly where to locate such activities? 8. Most of us have little idea of what we drink and eat – where it comes from, what’s gone into it, how good or bad it is for us. Most of us at the University don’t care for New Brunswick water – witness how many people drink bottled or filtered water on campus. Yet, although New Brunswick water may not taste good, that doesn’t mean it’s bad or that bottled water is any better.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
