3.5 The story so far

I have been discussing ethics as related to labelling things as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ or using more parochial words as substitutes. Different kinds of things could be said to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’, including means, ends, relationships, feelings, appearances, radiation levels and so on. The big ethical problem is how to combine this variety of things to reach a judgement, especially when combining them, it is possible that we end up with ambiguity or contradictions.

Water Is for Fighting Over
Along the parched California-Nevada border, various groups with compelling yet competing interests claim the water of the Truckee River Basin. The burgeoning Reno-Sparks area needs water to sustain the community, but high levels in a local reservoir are destroying the cui-ui fish of a local Paiute tribe. Farmers need irrigated water for crops, but the government seeks water further downstream for a wetlands area. These conflicts illustrate how scarce natural resources can shape a community. (26:
