Q1 :
three types of environmental ethics include:-
(1) Social ecology
It is the study of human beings and their relation to their environment. It can be termed to be as the study of
the relation between the developing human beings and the environment in which they live. For example:-
Extensive deforestation of redwood trees by the maxxam corporation is an example of social ecology issue as
it is explains what harm is caused to the environment by human activities which in this case is cutting of trees.
Deforestation of trees will have worst impacts on both land and environment.
(2) Deep ecology
It promotes that all beings have an intrinsic value. Diversity of life forms contribute to the realization of these
values. It also says that humans have no right to reduce this richness and diversity of lifeforms on earth. For
example:- Every single national park or protected wilderness area at work is a part of deep ecology. This
simply means the protection of different species of animal is a part of deep ecology. A bann on hunting and
poching also comes under this.
(3) Ecofeminism
It is a part of feminism that helps us look at earth as our mother so that we can respect it in a better way. It
draws on the concept of gender to analyse the relationships between humans and the natural world. For
example:- One of the examples of ecofeminism are: The chipko andolan moment in India led by indigenous
women to protect their forest from rapid deforestation in 1970s
Q2 :
(a) Increased number of cars on the road means that there will be more emission of harmfull gases. The
liberation of harmfull gases such as carbon mono- oxide, sulphur di oxide will lead to air pollution.
This in turn will cause health issues including asthama and lung problems to the people. Air pollution
also leads to acid rain which again destroys monuments etc. Also increased number of cars on the
road means blowing more horns and rush traffic. This will lead to sound pollution causing hearing
problems to many people. Also it may also have some mental effects on some people. Thus this is
counted under social ecology as this shows how man is destroying this beautifull nature with his
activities.
(b) Overfishing will simply lead to the breakdown of the sea and oceans eco system. When too many
fishes are taken out of the ocean it creates an imbalance that can erode the food web and lead to a
loss of other important marine lives including sea turtles and corals. It also leads to over growth of
algae. It also results to removal of some essential predators.

Q3:
Benefits :- # It will help to maintain the water bodies eco system, which is essential for aquatic life. # It will
help to prevent the harmfull influence of industrial waste, which degrades the putity of waterways to a large
amount.
Cons :- # Some of the chemicals used for water treatment may affect aquatic life # if chlorine is used as a
disinfectant, it may change the pH of the water # if chlorine is used as a disinfectant, it may affect the pH of
the water Water taste and odor # If electro compounds are employed, the cost of doing so is also fairly
significant.
Q4:
Wastewater treatment, in my opinion, is required before dumping it into rivers since it disrupts the ecological
equilibrium of the water bodies. Industries must choose the most effective and cost-effective wastewater
treatment technology that does not impact water bodies. UV technique, in my opinion, can be applied. It has
no lasting effects and does not necessitate the use of any chemicals. It's also good in getting rid of viruses,
spores, and cysts. It takes up minimal space and takes little time to purify.
