Discussion Topic Water Pollution Required Format:  Double Spaced  No more than 12pt font  Place your name, the date, the assignment name and the class at the top left of the paper Think about and respond to one of the topics listed below. This is your chance to practice persuasive writing in order to win your reader to your way of thinking about the point of view you choose. You should use, and properly cite, sources to support your point of view. Submit your Discussion Paper through the TurnItIn link for this week before Sunday November 20th at Midnight. 1. How should we compare the values of free-flowing rivers and natural ecosystems with the benefits of flood control, water diversion projects, hydroelectric power, and dammed reservoirs? 2. Would it be feasible to change from flush toilets and using water as a medium for waste disposal to some other system? What might be the best way to accomplish this? 3. Cost is the greatest obstacle to improving water quality. How would you decide how much of the cost of pollution control should go to private companies, government, or individuals? 4. How would you define adequate sanitation? Think of some situations in which people might have different definitions for this term. 5. What sorts of information would you need to make a judgment about whether water quality in your area is getting better or worse? How would you weigh different sources, types, and effects of water pollution? 6. Imagine yourself in a developing country with a severe shortage of clean water. What would you miss most if your water supply were suddenly cut by 90 percent? How would your daily routine change? What would you have to do differently? 7. Proponents of deep well injection of hazardous waste argue that it will probably never be economically feasible to pump water out of aquifers more than 1 kilometer below the surface. Therefore, they say, we might as well use those aquifers for hazardous waste storage. Do you agree? Why or why not? 8. Arsenic contamination in Bangladesh results from geological conditions, World Bank and U.S. aid, poverty, government failures, and other causes. Who do you think is responsible for finding a solution? Why? Would you answer differently if you were a poor villager in Bangladesh? 9. Chose a recent news-worthy story about water pollution here in Vermont. Why is this story important to you as an individual? Who else is affected? Why should the rest of the class pay attention to this story and what do you suggest we do about it? Who is responsible for cleaning up the pollution in your story? Why should they care?
