Post a 200- to 300- word response to the following questions:

· What role, if any, do you think people should play in preserving those regions threatened by human encroachment?

· How should the interests of competing groups be balanced?

· Example: Drilling in the Arctic – environmental groups oppose the plan on the grounds of the destruction to the habitat; those in favor argue that tapping into the oil there would be good for the economy and decrease reliance on foreign oil.

· What about when the habitat is not within the U.S. borders? Many international conservation groups are working to save the rainforest – what rights do people have to interfere with how another sovereign nation chooses to manage its lands? If the government of Bolivia is willing to allow millions of acres of jungle to be destroyed to promote the logging industry (which provides employment to their citizens), should people intervene? Why or why not?

    With any "should" questions, your specific values will determine your answers. What are your values related to the environment, various economies and trying to control other nations?

    What people would intervene? How would they intervene?

    Possibly you could generalize from similar values within your family and trying to influence the values of other families.

    I hope this gives you a start. Thanks for asking.
