    Eating green : valuing the environmental impacts of dietary choices by Shephard, Courtney Marin

    Anthropocentric action is the dominant force behind accelerating environmental deterioration and climate change well above historical levels. Personal consumption habits are a significant contributor to rapid environmental devastation. The average diet of developed nations emphasizes animal protein consumption, particularly meat products from cattle, pigs, and chicken, as well as milk and eggs. The industrialized and highly concentrated primary crop and livestock production processes in the United States emit a large percentage of greenhouse gases, contribute to over-exploitation of increasingly scarce water resources, and erode soil. Environmental externalities, such as these, are not currently accounted in consumer prices for animal products. The effects of this market failure are multiplying as developing nations industrialize and begin to adopt the consumption habits of the developed nations. This thesis examines the impact of livestock production in the United States, beginning with crop production and processing for feed, and ending with slaughter and processing. The greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and soil erosion costs are identified, incorporated into current market prices in the form of a demand-side Pigouvian tax, and compared to current market prices. By assessing three significant environmental externalities and determining a conservative estimate of the respective costs of these externalities, this research demonstrates both the failure of the neoclassical market structure to account for the true price of livestock production, and the impact that personal dietary choices make on the global environment.

    HYDRAULIC FRACTURING AND ITS EFFECT ON HOME VALUE IN COLORADO: A HEDONIC PRICING EVALUATION by Nadel, Matthew Clay

    Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is a popular and widespread method of oil and gas extraction in Colorado. This method might affect home values in certain areas of the state based on externalities associated with the practice. A hedonic pricing model was adapted to real estate in order to understand the effect that fracking has on housing values in specific areas of Colorado. This study uses data from the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission and the census to analyze frackings affect on house value in the top five oil and gas producing counties in Colorado. The goal of this study is to understand if areas that are densely packed with hydraulic fracturing wells experience lower housing prices compared against areas of the same county that are not densely packed with hydraulic fracturing wells. This study finds a significant negative externality on house price in areas that are densely packed with hydraulic fracturing wells.

    Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 01, High population density, Ginza, Tokyo.

    High population density, Ginza, Tokyo. -- With a total area of about 143,000 square miles, Japan is a bit smaller than California. Much of the land is too mountainous for cities and towns so the population is concentrated on those areas flat enough to build upon. About 70 percent of Japanese live in cities, and in places like Tokyo the population density may reach 20,000 or more people per square mile. -- Because of its location at the boundary of converging earth plates, Japan is geologically active with frequent earthquakes and volcanic activity. When these natural processes adversely affect people they are considered geological hazards. With a large population concentrated in a small areas, Japan is susceptible to serious geological disasters.
