PESTLE Project: How can Jefferson and Shelby County alleviate current air quality problems and stimulate economic growth in the area?

Posts on this page will be one-page reseach summaries of each sectors’ “essential information”.

Ideally each post will be set up in the following manner:

I. Convergent Data: what does each member of the group have in common?
Essentially what are the common threads or essential facts?

II. Key Data/Key Points from each member. There may be non-convergent (or     divergent) data from each member of the group. What are three things you think     everyone should know about your area of research that will help the entire     group. (use each other as a sounding board for this.

III. Three big ideas that the group believes or accepts. These should not be     policy     recommendations. These are just the synthesis of the group’s work.     These are     essentially the driving points that everyone needs to be aware of. If     possible,     back your three key points up with evidence or case studies.

    My goal for this project is for you all to develop recommendations to alleviate Birmingham’s current Air Quality Problems that are scientifically sound, economically feasible, and socially realistic. These recommendations can potentially increase economic activity in the region.

    My Sub goals for the project are as follows:
    A. Understand the relationship between Environmental Laws, Human Health, and Ecosystem Health
    B. Understand the technical and scientific solutions to air quality problems
    C. Learn how urban planning and “smart growth” can augment technical and scientific solutions (Can we clearly see the relationship between society and science?)
    D. Learn how biome, climate and topography influence air quality
    E. Understand the relationship between Energy, Economic Growth and Human Health
