The assessment is centred upon creating a summary of global warming issues and the polluter pays principle via ONE of the following the oil OR coal OR forestry industry to illustrate the problems and issues.

The Question
The OECD defines the polluter pays principle as - 
 “These charges oblige the polluter to include in his production costs the cost of the waste treatment he is induced to carry out and/or the cost of the damage caused by unrestrained or residual pollution. This re-establishes correct pricing; so that the gap is bridged between private cost and social cost … the charges are flexible and effective.”

What are the problems and implications of seeking to apply the polluter pays principle to the issue of combating climate change for  ONE of  - the oil OR coal OR forestry industry. To what extent are these businesses sustainable?  Can they conduct “business as usual”?

Task
Set out a 1,200 – 1,500 word  summary of the arguments in a briefing paper  for the intelligent reader  covering the application of this principle to the issue of combating global warming. Set out the issue and  arguments for the different constituencies, the chosen business, governments, rich nations, poor nations, vulnerable eco system the bio-sphere itself etc. 

Guidance - Summarise and illustrate the arguments
Make sure you understand what a  briefing paper entails. You will need to be able to set out in your own words the main arguments in a clear precise summary form accurately capturing the essentials of the arguments and issues. The aim is for the intelligent reader to be able to quickly “cover the territory” and understand the main issues and the essential arguments and problems.
Consider the PIP approach
P Problem. What is the problem? Often the most difficult question.
I Information. What information do I need to understand or argue or illustrate this case?
P Plan Only now can you set out the elements of any plan of action.

Use relevant selected fact to illustrate each argument and point. You may draw heavily upon material from the COP 2009 Conference in Copenhagen Dec 2009 or the subsequent UN follow on conferences. You must though clearly cite all your sources. Direct copying and lifting of text without proper citation, especially the use of quotation marks, will be penalised.  It will be best to pick and use a short relevant quote as an illustration and/or to use the quote as a basis for your summary of the issues problems and arguments.
You will score marks for –
 identifying the main arguments in clear succinct English.
accurately capturing  the essentials of the arguments
setting out the  issues/problems/implications  – for each relevant group.
setting out the costs, problems and benefits for each group
setting out the alternative policies or approaches.

You will lose marks for - cut and paste, copying, failing to use your own “voice”, over long quotes, failing to use “…” marks appropriately, use of bullet point lists. 

Format
This must be set out in a set of short paragraphs summarising particular points.  Each can be given a relevant heading. You must not use bullet points or lists.
 
Remember that 20% of your marks for this assignment will come from relevant arguments relating to globalisation.
