Discussion Questions

  1. From what you know thus far of agriculture, post your opinion on whether the agriculture industry is sustainable.
  2. Political strife often occurs because society values different types of sustainability. Find an example in the news of where this is occurring and explain the issues.
  3. Provide three examples of trade-offs between each of the three pillars of sustainability. For example, society often makes trade-offs between the environment and economic development – in cases where people need jobs, society often is willing to accept a small degree of pollution or environmental degradation in exchange for economic well being.
