Review the ~30 minute wissahickon video – go to the bottom of module 1 and the studio line item listed. As we discussed in lecture 1, environmental ethics is a systematic account of the moral relationships between human beings and their natural environment. Based on viewing the video how would you describe the relationship over time in this case. Things to consider: the use of the area including the creek, land development in the surrounding area, pollution and the visitors as well as protectors of the area. Is there a need for continued regulatory and other protection oversight of this area ? If so, why ?
