Explain the basis of judgment you believe should be used for addressing the moral questions or dilemmas surrounding the issue of coal use.


What exactly is this question asking of me? Not sure what to do.

  • Science -

    IT is asking you for what you see as the good and bad of using coal, from a moral point of view.

    Such as effect on the environment (air,greenhouse, destroyed landscape)
    Consequences on health of population
    Consequences on not emphasizing reduced use of power...in fact, what does it mean to burn coal to cool houses?

  • Science -

    I'd start by thinking of the moral issues on using coal. It pollutes. But what alternatives do we have? What do you think should be done about coal?

    Then, think about why you've made that decision. Is it for scientific reasons? Religious reasons? Pragmatism? Those reasons would form the basis of your judgment.
