Activity

Upper Hudson Dredging Debate part of Cutting Edge:Geology and Human Health:Workshop 04:Activities
This exercise is intended to investigate, in detail, a current environmental problem, namely the environmental dredging of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from the Upper Hudson River. After an introductory lecture into PCBs the students are divided into several stakeholder organizations whose constituency they must represent. They will meet as a team and research their position using material on the web and from the instructor. During the following class period they will present a five minute opening statement on their position related to the dredging issue and then debate the technical, social, and economic issues related to dredging. One final class will be devoted to global issues and environmental policy. -
