Think back to all the ethics we've covered so far:
How would you characterize your own environmental ethic and how did you come to hold these beliefs? In other words, what childhood experiences, works of literature or other influences inspired these beliefs? Think about whether or not your ethic comes from self-interest or from a true interest in non-human elements. Or does it come from an interest in sustainability (using enough of the land for what we need while preserving as much as possible for future generations) or justice (ensuring that all people have access to clean environments)?
