Your objective is to write a 1 to 2 page article detailing a current day “Tragedy of the Commons” (Food). You will only want to take one part of the Food problem, since writing about the whole food problem will be an immense project for a 1 to 2 page paper. Examples of subparts of the food problem are: treatment of animals, obesity, type 2 diabetes, feed lots, contamination of water systems from pesticides etc, abuse of workers.
Pretend you are William Forester Lloyd in the present and describe the commons issue just as he did when he demonstrated the commons problem through the pasture scenarios. You may use a metaphor just as Lloyd did but be sure that is describes the part you chose. In your introduction, you will explain the situation detailing the Food problem in the US. Second describe the common being destroyed and how this destruction is taking place. Next you will want to describe what our short term gain is vs the long term interest of society in reference to the problem you chose. Next, you will want to explain the solutions to the problem (You will need at least 2 solutions to the problem). Lastly you will want to tie the whole paper together with a conclusion.
Make sure your paper is free of spelling errors, grammatically correct, and written in paragraph form. I will only need your name at the top of the paper. Your paper is to be single spaced. See rubric below for how you will be graded.
