Write this essay on successes and failures in your own words and demonstrate your synthesis.

Pick ONE environmental law or regulation, explain its history, purpose and goals in detail, and evaluate its successes and failures since enactment. Use subsequent court and legislative events, as well as information from the internet and/or printed literature, to help in your evaluation. Most students pick the Clean Water Act (CWA), the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA), or the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), but there are a lot more laws and regulations out there…..pick something interesting and applicable to your life. We have covered lots of different possibilities this session, so do not limit yourself to the most well known acts.
You are required to use specific facts, cases, and multiple citations (I suggest 5-10 or more scholarly sources) in order to support your essay. You are required to integrate course materials and concepts as well. Show me what you know and what you have learned.
As always, cite all sources used in APA style with in-text citations and a reference list. A fully developed response should go beyond your textbook and required readings (although you may include them), have multiple citations from valid sources (e.g., no wiki-anything) and should avoid direct quotes from others. Write this essay on successes and failures in your own words and demonstrate your synthesis. The essay should be 5-7 page total in length (excluding title page and references). If you need a little help starting a research paper, I’ve attached a helpful guidance document.
Please submit your essay as an attachment. This course uses automatic plagiarism checking software (Turnitin). You may submit your work up to 3 times prior to the deadline to check your similarity scores (aim for a green or yellow flag).

This is a course work that I already did but turned in with comments from the instructor with bad grad. I need to rewrite this paper and revised based on the instructor comments that I got. I uploaded the assignment instructions + my paper + all comments from instructors.

Consider how your project proposal might align with these goals (this will be a mini essay question, so start thinking about it now!!):

For this assignment, you are asked to brainstorm and submit three potential proposals for a project that you will eventually develop into a magazine and present to Hayward city staff and council.
Follow the steps in the “Brainstorming a Project” section of this assignment. Come up with ideas that you would enjoy doing and that you could execute. Don’t propose easy solutions like planting trees or adding solar panels. As important and necessary as those solutions are, there’s nothing innovative or exciting about them.
Once you have three potential ideas, write a 200 word synopsis for each project. Your synopsis must include:
An overview of what your project is
An explanation of how it solves a local environmental issue
A description on how it will increase community cohesion (i.e., how it will bring community members together)
A brief summary of what makes your project innovative
Write a synopsis for all three of your ideas and submit them to this assignment page
I will provide feedback on your projects and approve one of them to be developed into a longer proposal. It’s possible that I might reject all three of your ideas. If that happens, we’ll need to do some more brainstorming to develop a new project.
Brainstorming a Project
Coming up with a project to solve any environmental issue can be extremely challenging. However, it doesn’t have to be. For starters, we know all the solutions to mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis, and we have 90% of the technology to enact those solutions. We know we need to transform our energy, transportation, and food systems (to name a few), and we know how to transform them. It’s now a matter of putting the political will behind the solutions. Our projects may not entirely transform any of these systems. However, we will be proposing projects that could support these transitions. We will be developing small scale projects to address the local environmental issues in Hayward and to increase community cohesion.
The good news is that you already have the knowledge, skills, and passion to propose and enact a solution. We’re going to go through a series of steps to help us brainstorm our project.
Identify your passions, skills, and interests. Create a list of all the things you love to do, that you’re good, and that you care about. It might be photography, soccer, hiking, playing board games, music, cooking, spending time with friends or your pets, etc. List everything you enjoy doing.
Identify the concerns the concerns and opportunities (by opportunities I mean how people responded to interview question #12 about what they need to be more climate active). Create a list of all the concerns and needs that the community described during their interviews.
concerns and opportunities identified by Hayward community members:
Wildfires
Air pollution and air quality
Increase temperature (i.e., increased heat)
Trash/waste/plastic
Sea level rise
Loss of biodiversity and species extinction
Concern over other people not being concerned
More awareness/education about how to be more climate conscious/active
See other people being climate-friendly to inspire others
More opportunities/events/organizations to get involved
More incentives to switch to climate-friendly options (like solar panels, electric vehicles, etc.)
Water conservation
Match your passions and skills to the concerns and opportunities. Ask yourself how can you incorporate the community’s concerns or opportunities into your own interests. Here are some examples
Perhaps one of your passions is photography. In response to interview question #3, many community members said they were concerned about species going extinct. Perhaps your project proposal could be to organize a photography expedition where you and Hayward community members photograph threatened species in Hayward (and yes, there are many threatened species).
OR perhaps you’re passionate about cooking. Maybe you could propose a project where you teach kids how to cook environmentally friendly recipes.
OR perhaps you’re passionate about skateboarding and you noticed that many Hayward residents are concerned about the amount of waste in the community. You could develop a proposal for turning plastic bottle caps into skateboards (and yes, that is being done as we speak)
OR maybe you’re passionate about landscape architecture. You could design a small green space in a neighborhood that doesn’t have access to green spaces.
OR maybe you care a lot about politics. You could propose a new measure/law to be included in Hayward’s Climate Action Plan, Environmental Justice Element, or Hazards Element.
You could educate people on things in people’s homes that are affecting the air they breathe and their health in a fun and interactive way
A few other things to remind yourself of while you’re brainstorming. These are the goals in Hayward’s Climate Action Plan, Environmental Justice Element, and Hazards Element. Consider how your project proposal might align with these goals (this will be a mini essay question, so start thinking about it now!!):
Reduce GHG emissions from
Building Energy
Transportation
Water
Waste
Increase Carbon Sequestration (removing GHGs from the atmosphere)
Promote a Culture Shift where community members are more environmentally conscious
Reduce pollution exposure
Promote access to public facilities
Promote access to healthy food
Promote safe and sanitary homes
Promote physical activity
Promote civic engagement
Increase awareness and education
Reduce hazards related to:
Sea level rise
Earthquakes
Tsunamis
Floods
Wildfires

What do you think about what is being suggested in the video?

1) The storymap lecture discussed the idea of positive-sum sustainability solutions (i.e., those that simultaneously advance the goals of environmental protection and human well-being). Each of the following videos suggests such a positive-sum solution. Watch one of the videos and briefly summarize it. What is the main idea, and how does what the presenter is suggesting promise to benefit both people and planet? After your summary, offer a personal reaction. What do you think about what is being suggested in the video? And do you agree that this is, in fact, a positive sum solution (i.e, that it has the potential to simultaneously promote environmental sustainability and human well being)?
Watch & respond to one of the following videos:
a. Jeff Speck: The Walkable City
b. Gabe Brown: Regeneration of Our Lands: A Producer’s Perspective
c. Juliet Schor: Visualizing a Plenitude Economy
2) Can you come up with a different “positive-sum solution,” that in your view would simultaneously enhance human well-being while decreasing humanity’s ecological footprint? Find an online article that provides an example of a different “positive-sum solution.” Post a link to your article, and briefly summarize it here.
(If you’re having difficulty coming up with ideas, consider one of the following topics: food waste, sustainable fashion, afforestation (or search for “trillion trees initiative”), sustainable oceans, food forests, water sustainability, to name just a few).

What are the expected outcomes/fallout of the environmental issue in your hometown (long-term impacts, changes to laws, etc.)

Environmental issues are pervasive, touching every corner of the globe. For this assignment, you will delve into one current environmental issue plaguing your hometown. Please identify an environmental problem within 100 miles of your hometown and use scientific literature to produce a five (5) page minimum written report (12-pt font, double-spaced, with 1″ standard margins, excluding title page and references (these pages do not count toward your 5 page minimum)) which covers the following:
Identify your hometown and its proximity or relation to the area where a major environmental issue has been found. Detail any unique characteristics of this area (i.e. climate, population, unique geographic features, etc.)
Describe what the environmental issue is and when/how the problem arose
Who is responsible for causing the issue and any laws/regulations the responsible party violated in creating the environmental issue
Who/what is being impacted by this issue, including the affected environmental compartments, biotic systems, etc. Discuss any personal impacts observed by yourself, family, and friends, if applicable.
How is the issue being handled, or how will it be dealt with/remediated
