Environmental Science Dust Bowl Tragedy of The Commons
After watching the videos write a one-page single-spaced paper explaining how the Dust Bowl is a “tragedy of the commons”. Include background information on the Dust Bowl, the short term gains versus the lack of foresight of the long term interests of the Great Plains. Also, include the technical solutions that have been implemented to solve the issues that arose due to the Dust Bowl. Explain if these technical solutions have solved the commons problem. One source that must be used in your paper is the Tragedy of the Commons article by Garrett Hardin that can be found in Session 2.
