an associate-level environmental scientist in a large urban city. The growing
human population within the city increases pressure on the infrastructure and
natural resources, affecting the environment. As cities expand, they cut deeper
into surrounding rural areas, causing environmental problems, such as the loss
of wetlands, loss of biological habitats, and air and water pollution. The high
density of automobiles, factories, and commercial enterprises in urban areas
adds to airborne emissions, including particulate matter, various types of
oxides, and hazardous volatile compounds.
selected city is experiencing rapid growth in population. The City Council is
worried that this pattern of population growth, combined with concerns over
climate change, is beginning to create a number of negative environmental, economic,
and social consequences. These include deteriorating infrastructure, increasing
traffic congestion, declining air and water quality, and the loss of open
space. The City Council has charged you with writing a report that will
recommend measures to address the pollution issues and reduce carbon emissions.
decisions on the optimal measures for addressing the pollution management

your selected measures.
an environmental science and climate change perspective, describe the potential
effectiveness of your selected measures.
for the various pollution reduction measures, including potential improvements
in human and ecosystem health: For example, bringing in legislation to install
pollution control devices in factories may sound like an effective choice, but
installation of such devices is a huge expense, and there is likelihood of
strong opposition by business groups.
the following statement: “Decision-making about environmental issues
necessitates the maintenance of a fine balance between the effectiveness of
measures and the public reaction towards them.”
