According to the video clip from the Economist, why is the deep sea “the final frontier on planet Earth”? What are the needs and/or the advantages of seabed mining?
Childs shows us how Nautilus Minerals have legitimized seabed mining in Papua New Guinea despite rising social and ecological concerns. Dover also argues that we need to tighten regulations on deep-sea mining. Synthesizing these readings, what do you think are the disadvantages/negative effects of seabed mining?
Comparing the pros and cons of seabed mining, what is your own view on seabed mining? Do we need it? If so, when and how? If not, why?
using the documentary and article below please answer the questions below 400 Words.
Shinn 2018: https://www.nrdc.org/stories/something-fishy-trouble-atlantic-salmon-pacific-northwest
Taking salmon mariculture as an example, answer the questions below on the limits and potentials of mariculture.
According to Shinn (2018) and the documentary Estado Salmonero, what are the specific problems associated with growing salmon under human control? How does salmon mariculture affect the environment, the people (including those who grow or eat salmon), and the fish (both farmed and wild salmon)?
Given these problems, do we still need to eat salmon? If so, how can we address the existing problems and grow salmon differently? If not, what can be our alternatives to salmon?
Let’s scale up the issue. Do you think mariculture leads us to a sustainable future of seafood? If not, what are its limits? If so, what are its potentials? How can we carefully grow fish, while minimizing ecological and social impacts?

Think about disasters your community has or could potentially face. Now, think about how your community is helping its members prepare.
Explore your community and find an advertisement that represents helping community members be prepared for a disaster.

Choose upload image from the drop down arrow
Click on the Upload Image (rocket ship) icon
Click on the image you want to display
Describe the message the advertisement is conveying.
Describe how the message impact preparedness.
If you cannot find any advertisement in your community, describe a type of advertisement for disaster preparedness you think would be most beneficial to your community and how it would be best conveyed.
Next, identify one community setting that is impacted by the disaster advertisement you shared
Analyze at least one nursing role (refer to Week 6 lesson) related to disaster preparedness in that setting. Example: In the school setting, what actions and interventions would be involved with the nurse as coordinator of disaster preparedness?
Identify at least one key stakeholder related to the setting that a CHN could collaborate with regarding disaster preparedness. Include why this collaboration is important.
Your discussion post should look like:
Paragraph one: Describe the message the advertisement is conveying and how the message impact preparedness.
Paragraph two: Identify one community setting that is impacted by the disaster advertisement you shared. Analyze at least one nursing role related to disaster preparedness in that setting.
Paragraph three: Identify at least one key stakeholder related to the setting that a CHN could collaborate with regarding disaster preparedness. Include why this collaboration is important.
Resources: Where did you find your data?
The film, Everything’s cool illustrates how perceptions of global warming have been shaped by business executives and politicians. What did this film teach you about global warming? What do you think is necessary to change approaches to and opinions about climate change? More specifically, how can we reconcile the disconnect between climate science and US policy-makers (and the public) and encourage objective assessments of the effects of and solutions to climate change?
