Transcript: Consequential: as a result, justice must be served Libertarianism: an individual owns themselves the extent of having certain moral powers to do and acquire as they please Malum Prohibitum Questions for the class: What are your thoughts on how the Ford Company handled the Pinto situation?Do you think you can place a value on life? If so, how much?Should the American Government be held accountable for the actions of the individual?(Anything else you can think of?) Innocence of Muslims -->Portrays Mohammed as a womanizer, a child molester, and alludes to religious fraud -->Should the Muslim protestors be held accountable? -->They're protesting their beliefs What's the Right Thing to Do? -> Is it morally right for the judge to take the lawyers reasoning? -> His lawyer argues for him to not be imprisoned The Release of Anti-Muslim Hate Video 1.Exploding gas tanks – cost-benefit analysis involving human life is very prevalent in today as well as back in the 70’s when the Pinto problem occurred J U S T I C E - The problem is whether or not it is right to place a price on human life.- To the Ford Company, they believed that placing the number on human life was necessary in order to save money and get the product out the fastest to the greatest number of people.- It is argued that it is morally wrong to place a dollar value on human life- In order to get the most product out for public in general while keeping spending at its lowest it was necessary for Ford to perform a cost-benefit analysis on the car. Free speech or hate video? We believe it is wrong to place a value on human life because of all the subtleties that a cost-benefit analysis can’t account for. -->In the early 1970’s Ford released its new sub-compact car to the public: the Pinto. -in the event of a rear collision the Pinto’s gas tanks would rupture, and burst into flames. -“More than five hundred people died when their Pintos burst into flames, and many more suffered severe burn injuries” (Sandel 43) -->The cost of installing safety features on each of the vehicles to prevent the gas tank from exploding would cost $11. Ford calculated that spending $11 on 12.5 million Pintos would cost them $137.5 million. Ford then performed a cost-benefit analysis by estimating that they would pay $200,000 for each life lost as a result of the accident and only $67,000 for each burn victim. They then estimated that only 180 people would be hurt and another 180 people would die. That added up to only $49.5 million as compared to the $137.5 million it would cost to improve the cars safety. In the end Ford decided to keep quiet and not add the safety feature. -> Nakoula Basseley is now under arrest for violation of his probation. Group Definition of "Justice:" Doing the right thing with in the boundaries of one’s own moral compass as well as within the law of the community. Exploding Gas Tanks in the 1970s Ford Pinto

Environmental Justice: Background Materials

Transcript: Environmental Justice What is it? The environmental justice or EJ movement and the environmental movement are distinct, yet overlapping struggles. The modern EJ movement has its roots in the intersection of the Civil Rights movement and the environmental movement. The EJ movement has since expanded to addressing the kinds of environmental inequalities being studied in areas such as transportation, health, housing, and smart growth/land use, water, energy development, brownfields, and militarization Studies of occupational exposures in the garment industry and in Silicon Valley factories staffed by Asian and Latino immigrant women workers, (Pellow and Park 2003) Native American communities imperiled by military wastes and hazards (Hooks and Smith 2004) Analyses of gender and the role of women as protagonists in environmental justice activism. (Allen (2003), Peeples and DeLuca (2006), and Di Chiro (1998) ) Youth environmental justice activism has also sparked a number of works that examine the issue of age/generation in environmental justice (Sze et al. 2005) Similarly, London (2007), Driskell (2002), and Chawla et al. (2005) describe the role of youth-led participatory action research in promoting youth voices and perspectives in the improvement and redesign of urban neighborhoods. U.S. Government milestones on environmental justice Recent research has broadened the scope: includes other racial and ethnic groups (e.g., Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans) and disparities associated with gender and age. Rosa Parks 2007 1978 Research While Civil Rights activists were struggling for basic human rights... ... environmentalists were working to preserve wilderness areas. In its earliest incarnations, environmental justice research was concerned primarily with the toxic and hazardous waste impacts in low income and communities of color Lois Gibbs and Love Canal Land use and smart growth Energy development Water issues Transportation Brownfields Militarization Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB), a dangerous chemical, was illegally dumped along North Carolina highways in 1978. When the dumping came to light, state officials selected the mostly Black community of Afton, Warren County, for a landfill to store the contaminated soil. This site did not meet EPA guidelines for hazardous waste landfills. Residents fought the landfill’s construction through legal action and protests. More than twenty years later, community members held the State to its promise to decontaminate the site. Background material on Warren County NC Warren County, North Carolina - Birthplace of the E.J.
