HIS 270 7-1 Discussion: Environmental Implications

The modern American city in the twentieth century laid bare the environmental impact of population growth and concentration, as well as the environmental damage resulting from the externalization of costs.

In your initial post, address the following questions:

  1. How did Americans in the twentieth century respond to the pressures posed by urbanization?

  2. How did the development of ecology as a field of study serve to frame the challenges of the human imprint on the environment and the possible means of redressing an imbalance in that relationship?

Relate your initial post to this week's readings and resources.

When responding to your peers, discuss how the urban environment served to alter permanently the ways Americans interacted with the natural environment.

To complete this assignment, review the Discussion Rubric document.
