Session 9

The Battle for Public Lands

  • Class Topics: 

  • The Arctic Wildlife Refuge (ANWR)

  • Contested Access to Public Lands

  • The Public Domain

Readings:     

Chapter 9, Environmental Politics & Policy

Assignment:       

REMINDER: The Comp Exam is distributed during session 9 and is due before class convenes again during session 10. Given the ongoing demand for energy to fuel not only the U.S. economy but the worldwide economy also, the ANWR controversy remains one of the most turbulent of all controversies principally because of the large oil reserves to be found there and the staunch defense from environmentalists over drilling on the land. At issue is what is fact and what is fiction. You decide and be prepared to make your point in this next class session.
