“Power is the ability to influence someone to do something that they otherwise would not do. In this assignment, I would like to for you consider that. Who are the main actors in environmental politics? How do these actors exercise power over one another? When developing your answers, make sure you use the readings provided. I want to hear your own voice (what you think of these issues), as much as I want to see that you understood what the authors in the readings said. For each of the answers, use at least 3 different readings from those provided. I suggest a minimal of 250 words and a maximum of 500 words per answer. Include the references towards the end of each answer. References do not count towards the word limit.” – Instructions If you use any other websites for information please reference.
