Envionmental ethics

Environmental ethics is defined as the analysis of the human use of Earth's limited resources.

Ethics is the branch of philosophy that primarily discusses issues dealing with human behaviour and character. Ethics attempts to establish a basis for judging right from wrong and good from bad.

Environmental ethics is the branch of ethics which analyzes human use of Earth's limited resources. A growing trend is to combine the study of both ecology and economics to help provide a basis for sustainable decisions on environmental use.

Environmental ethics attempts to answer questions of how human beings should relate to their environment regarding the usage of environmental resources and their treatment of other species (plant and animal).

A few conflicts that arise from environmental policies deal with the rights of individuals versus those of the state and rights of private property owners versus those of a community.
