The tragedy of the commons concept illustrates what can happen when people use a limited resource, which can result in “what is good for the individual is not necessarily good for the whole.”

The tragedy of the commons concept illustrates what can happen when people use a limited resource, which can result in “what is good for the individual is not necessarily good for the whole.” For this discussion forum,
Describe an example of the tragedy of the commons in your area. While the video used the example of fish being pulled from a pond, what examples do you see in your community?
Explain how culture might impact the example you shared from your community.
Identify the natural cycle or system that is being impacted and any threats to the sustainability of a specific resource.
Identify the people or organizations that are responsible for this tragedy of the commons.
Provide one potential solution that could keep this tragedy from degrading the well-being of your neighbors or community.
After viewing the ENV111 Week Two | Career Integration: Stone Brewing Company (Links to an external site.) video, discuss how the brewing industry can reduce their water usage footprint.
Explain one action how your current employer (or the industry you wish to enter upon graduating) can minimize water usage.

They argue that as a living thing, a tree has a right to protection regardless of its monetary value and that we have a moral duty to protect them.

5. Imagine a group of environmental economists use the ecosystem services approach to determine that the economic value of a tree is approximately $1,000. This is based on the benefits they provide, such as shade, erosion control, carbon sequestration and scenic enjoyment. Suppose this is about $500 more, on average, than the value of each tree as timber at that time. When the economists publish their findings, a group of environmental ethicists argue that this approach is wrong-headed because it devalues the intrinsic value of trees. They argue that as a living thing, a tree has a right to protection regardless of its monetary value and that we have a moral duty to protect them. Both the economists and ethicists claim they are trying to protect the trees.
-Which approach do you find more compelling? Explain why.
-Which approach do you think would be more effective? Why?

You should upload this 2 page word document in blackboard.

Grading rubric for the Lab 1 Reports
The final report for this lab will be due before the start of the next lab class (i.e., roughly 1 week). Your report will be graded on a 10-point scale. Answer the following questions in your 2 page double spaced report in Word format. You should upload this 2 page word document in Blackboard. Your report will be assessed using the following rubric to determine if you’ve addressed each of these four points:
• What is the tragedy of the commons? You can read Garrett Hardin’s, which is posted on the course web site in the Week 1 module.
• Were the results of the Fishbank simulation consistent with the tragedy of the commons? The Instructor and TA will post on Blackboard copies of the graphs describing the results of your simulation to help you write the summary.
• Provide one or more other examples of common resources that are subject to the tragedy of the commons.
• Propose one or more solutions to the tragedy of the commons for fisheries. You may want to access one or more of these web links, each contains a video:
• Sustainable Oceans and Seas, the story (15:41 min) of New Zealand’s Quota
Management System: https://youtu.be/sDh2Cn2bNxk
• The following web page discusses different ways of restricting open access to
fisheries and includes a link to a 5-min video about the British Columbia halibut fishery: http://fisherysolutionscenter.edf.org/sustainable-fisheries
