#52. In two or three well-developed paragraphs, list and describe the importance of the four steps in a simple environmental decision-making model.

my answer:
A decision-making model is a conceptual model that provides a systematic process for making decisions. The four steps in a simple environmental decision-making model are gathering information, considering values, exploring consequences, and making a decision. The first step is to gather information. One way to do is to watch news reports and read newspapers, magazines, and books about environmental issues. One should also listen to well-informed people on all sides of an issue. The next step is to consider values. This means to consider which values apply to the issue. Next, you should explore the consequences of each option. Finally, it is time to evaluate all of the information and come to a conclusion, or make a decision.

This is all I could find, but I feel like it's not detailed enough. Can someone please help me add more to this. I think I should write about the importance of these four steps in a simple environmental decision-making model.

    For gathering information -- shouldn't researchers also take data first hand?

    Considering values? Whose values? Industry's? Environmentalists? Economists? Citizens?

    What will be the results if only industry's or only environmentalist's, etc. values are adopted?

    What decisions do you think should be made? Why?
