Questions for final discussion Environmental Studies, 18 October 2011

What is the most important thing you have learned in this course? How does it relate to your own life (home, family, work, etc)?

Is the level of environmental protection in this region sufficient? Are there aspects of environmental laws or regulations that are too strict?

On a global scale, is economic growth compatible with sustainability? How do we resolve this apparent conflict?

Is sustainability achievable? How do we get there from here? Are we arrogant to believe that human civilization can persist indefinitely?
