Environment ethics (brief)

  1. 1. Vinay Shriyan First yr. Marketing Div. A, RollNo. 61 Wikipedia defines Environmental ethics as the part of environmental philosophy which considers the ethical relationship between human beings and the natural environment. It exerts influence on a large range of disciplines including law, sociology, theology, economics, ecology and geography. Applied environmental ethics  Environmental Effects of War  Air and Water Pollution  Genetic Engineering  Radiation  Nanotechnology  Ozone Crisis and Global Warming  Cloning  Population and Environment  Resource Allocation  Ecofeminism  Animals and Vegetarianism  Indigenous Peoples  Spirituality and the Environment  Environmental Ethics awareness Environmental Ethics and Politics - Deep Ecology - Feminism and the Environment - Disenchantment and the New Animism - Social Ecology and Bioregionalism Deep ecology, feminism, and social ecology have had a considerable impact on the development of political positions in regard to the environment. Feminist analysis have often been welcomed for the psychological insight they bring to several social, moral and political problems. There is, however, considerable unease about the implications of critical theory, social ecology and some varieties of deep ecology and animism. Some recent writers have argued, for example, that critical theory is bound to be ethically anthropocentric, with nature as no more than a “social construction” whose value ultimately depends on human determinations (see Vogel 1996). Others have argued that the demands of “deep” green theorists and activists cannot be accommodated within contemporary theories of liberal politics and social justice (see Ferry 1998). If this last claim is correct, then the radical activist need not, after all, look for philosophical support in radical, or countercultural, theories of the sort deep ecology, feminism, bioregionalism and social ecology claim to be. Being an Environmentalist Environmentalists work in a variety of careers related to the protection of natural resources. Their jobs might be in the fields of pollution control, waste management, engineering, education, law, conservation, or fishery and wildlife management. Employers often require continuing environmental education classes. Some environmental work can require long hours for little pay. Some of the famous environmental recruiters are WWF, Connect2earth, Environmental career center, clean Harbors, Citizen for a healthy bay, ACRT - Independent Vegetation Management, Entrix - Environmental and Natural resource management consultants and many more.
