  • Click on an office that may regulate issues pertaining to your topic and employ people with your assigned expertise.
  • Next click on the department that the office oversees. For example, the Secretary of Agriculture is the administration for the United States Department of Agriculture. I want to you to work in a department and not in an administrative office.
  • Read a bit about the department and see if there is an organization chart that shows the hierarchy of the different programs/agencies that exist within. Click on the varying agencies if there is a link. Investigate these departments’ roles and decide if it is logical for your character to be employed by them.

Health and Human Services • Center for Disease Control o National Center for Environmental Health/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry The National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) is a branch for the Center for Disease Control that is dedicated to plan, direct and coordinate national programs to maintain and help improve the health of the public. This organization works to prevent premature deaths due to illnesses caused by environmental factors. As I further my research I hope to discover what the emerging diseases due to ocean acidification are - Secretary of Commerce • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration o Oceanic and Atmospheric Research The Oceanic Atmospheric Administration is a branch under the Secretaries of Commerce division of the Cabinet. Their responsibilities are the following: “to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans, and coasts, to share that knowledge and information with others, and to conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources”. Being employed under this division would make sense because ocean acidification has many effects on the marine ecosystem which will subsequently endanger the health of humans who feed on seafood. -National Academy of Sciences • Human environmental sciences Under this specific branch of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) I encountered an American scientist by the name of Peter Gleick. Peter Gleick has dedicated his career on researching issues with the environment. He is employed by the Pacific Institute in Oakland, California. Among the many issues his research has discovered I found the following the most relatable: conflicts over water resources, water and climate change, development, and human health. It would make sense for me to be employed under this specific branch in order to further communicate to the public the dangers of animal agriculture, and the effects that this has on global warming and ocean acidification. -Executive Office of the President • Council on Environmental Quality The CEQ was established in the year 1969 as a part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) under the administration of President Nixon. The CEQ works to advance the president's agenda on the environment, natural resources, and energy. This organization would make sense for me to work for since I am the Public Health Educator. Under this position I would be responsible for informing the president about the dangers of animal agriculture and the effects it is having on our oceans. Furthermore, I would inform the president of the possible effects these changes can have on human health. Vice President Secretaries of Agriculture Secretaries of Commerce National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Oceanic and Atmospheric Research Secretaries of Defense Secretaries of Education Secretaries of Energy Secretaries Health and Human Services Center for Disease Control National Center for Environmental Health/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry Secretaries of Homeland Security Executive Branch Secretaries of Housing and Urban Development Secretaries of Interior Secretaries of Labor Secretaries of State Secretaries of Transportation Secretaries of Treasury Secretaries of Veteran Affairs Attorney General White House Chief of Staff Director of the Office of Management and Budget Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Trade Representative Ambassador to the United Nations Chairs of the Council of Economic Advisers Administrator of the Small Business Administration Executive Office of the President Council on Environmental Quality National Academy of Sciences Human Environmental Sciences A Sting without the Buzz Narrative While conducting a study about the decline in the bee population, an epidemiologist discovers the negative effects of Neonicotinoids on the bees. Funded by the Environmental Protection Agency, the study goes on to discover the negative effects on human life due to the decay in the bee population. The decline of the bees directly affects plant-based diets for the human race, eventually leading to chronic illness; such as heart diseases. In search to find a solution to the epidemic, a scientist working for the National Center of Toxicological Research (NCTR) funded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIH), is called in to conduct further research on the matter. The scientist evaluates toxic substances in the environment like Neonicotinoids, which are causing a staggering decline in bumblebees and honeybees. An idea is developed to provide the bees with an antidote that counteracts the effects of the pesticides. However, further research must to be conducted in an effort to keep bees pollinating, thus producing healthy crops, which not only prevents, but can even reverse heart disease. A well-known medical provider from the Medical Physiology and Metabolism lab within the National Academy of Science (NAS) is brought in to disseminate information on the costly effects of heart disease and prevention. A plant-based diet is the foundation for providing heart-healthy fiber, while a rich animal-based diet would lead to heart diseases resulting from: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, increased risk of overweight, etc. A public health educator representing the Chief of Staff under the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is hired in hopes to bring awareness to the government which will dictate what actions will be taken on a national level. The public health educator will link all evidence provided by the epidemiologist, scientist, and medical provider in order to inform the members of the council of environmental quality, office of chemical safety and pollution prevention on the effects of the bee declination on human health.
