550 Words: The landscape of environmental justice has fundamentally

shifted in the last decade. While we typically think of issues like landfill and chemical plant siting as environmental justice issues, now the effects of global climate change are shaping the debates surrounding environmental justice. Defenders of the current practices that result in environmental racism claim that it is economic, not racial, considerations that account for disproportionate impacts on nonwhites; therefore the practices are neither racist nor morally objectionable. 1) Do you agree with this assertion, given the statistics on injuries, the statistics on settlements paid, the expediency of claims? 2) Does intent matter? 3) Is there no moral culpability if the injury is only an indirect effect? 4)Consider these questions in the context of a particular environmental justice issue. Tell us a little about it (perhaps it is something that occurred in your hometown or a case you read about in another class or setting) to give us a broader sense of these kinds of issues. Be sure to properly cite all reference resources used to build your posts, to include course assigned readings and outside research as appropriate. Follow APA style for all assignments throughout this course.
