Historical narrative and explanation of an environmental problem

A 3-4 page historical narrative and explanation of an environmental problem that has affected you and/or your hometown in some way.

This could be any number of things, but think specifically about something that has happened, or is happening now, in or near where you live or grew up. You will then use the course material and one outside academic source to place the problem in its regional/national/global context; discuss who is affected most by the problem; and explain what kinds of efforts have been undertaken, if any, to address the problem.
