Urban sprawl has grown to be a serious threat to environmental and social capital. The challenges of Urban Sprawl to the environment and society needs to be measured and mitigated skillfully with serious and purpose oriented input from planners, government and the community. In metropolitan areas, Urban Growth Management has become a known discipline that is used efficiently to regulate land use. Urban Growth Management attempts to addresses and mitigate the negative repercussions of urban sprawl and it also facilitates in designing future policies to keep urban development sustainable. (Fertner, Jorgensen, Nielsen & Nilsson, 2016).
If this location was owned by someone, or at least regulated the Truffula Trees would still be standing. This bring in the section Tragedy of freedom in a commons. Garrett Hardin explains that freedom to do what we want is essentially our downfall. A Truffula Tree regulation or a conservation method would have benefited both the Once Ler and the environment. With individual freedom any person could potentially destroy the environment because of supply and demand and major greedy corporations with loose laws regarding the conservation of species and regulation of toxic chemical dumping.
The State must maintain diversification of its exports and not lose its economic independence. Our decisions will be inspired solely by national interests and in the unrestricted defense of our sovereign rights’. This triggered Lobbying in White House by Oil firms due to which Hit Men attempted to thwart Mr. Jaime’s aspiration, but they failed. Therefore, Jackals jumped in Ecuador and killed the president in an Air crash. In the same fashion, the author explains Iraq episode where both
The wealthy shape environmental policies, controlling industrial and agricultural output and land usage, just to name a few. A mass extinction cannot be prevented without persuading those with wealth. However, David Quammen’s Harper’s Weekly article “Planet of Weeds” views the wealthy not as drivers of change, but as fugitives from the Earth’s harsh environment that the wealthy themselves had created. The text effectively argues that a mass extinction is a possibility and even a reality by employing ethos, logos and pathos to logically and emotionally appeal to its audience. Yet, the text stops short of calling for an action, because such action will be impotent and unlikely to be favored by the wealthy when they will not face much consequences.
Nature's Metropolis is organised around commodity flows and understanding how humans actions result in environmental change. This change is illustrated through a series of stories that depict the connection between the urban market and first nature. Journeys from city to country are often used to show the city’s place in its natural surroundings. The author tells the story of the city and its hinterland simultaneously and presents a history of their
Sustainable Area Mevan Srishanmugathasan 1001578857 GGR111H5F October 23rd, 2014 The term sustainable city, or eco-city is primarily used to describe a city designed with the thought of environmental impact, repressed by society dedicated to the minimization of essential inputs of energy, provisions, water, and an assortment of waste outputs which include high temperatures, methane as well as water pollution.

In a modern story, there are plenty of reasons to have a pro-environmental message, because environmental destruction is something that has only began in the comparatively recent past. The idea of human settlement being overdeveloped enough that it is negatively affecting the environment is based on humans having enough influence to do that. The classic "anti-industrialist" story relies on deforestation and pollution being conducted by an entity that is doing it unnecessarily - the profit-hungry capitalist, or the uncaring consumerist first-world public. In a story set in medieval times, humans are in most places still struggling to survive, and this is certainly true in Princess Mononoke 's setting. The people of Iron town are not wealthy; rather, they are an independent collective barely able to maintain their lifestyle due to their economic reliance on the outside for supplies and their constant conflicts with the creatures of the forest.
This dehumanization stems from a legacy of colonization, through which indigenous populations were stripped of their human and environmental rights and forced into treaties that served to solely benefit the imperialist nation-state. Through the dehumanization of indigenous populations, government and corporate entities justify the theft of land, exploitation of resources, and overall violence against peaceful populations. The existence of environmental racism and the degradation of indigenous populations and their land and resources for profit highlights the connection between environmentalism, classism, and racism, as the ecological and human rights crisis studied throughout the course are driven by hegemonic capitalist and white supremacist
The violence against the Congolese was caused by financial instability. This was primarily because Leopold lacked sufficient funds without the support from Belgium. As a result, the government was unable to generate revenue or pay for expensive military costs caused by civil disputes and constant revolts. After failed incentives such as restrictions on free trade, and taxing villages, the government turned to forced labour as a desperate attempt to generate revenue. Villagers were forced to collect rubber as a form of repayment to the state.
Kharas concludes with stating, with this inclusive growth there will be continued widening of income and opportunity inequality. The barriers these create must be forcefully tackled while preserving the benefits of this emerging class. Annotation 2: Reference: The role of global companies in bridging wealth disparity. (2016).
