I’m studying and need help with a Environmental Science question to help me learn.

QUESTION 1

  • Why does it seem that disasters are becoming more frequent, more severe, and more expensive? What actions can be taken to reverse this trend? Discuss and provide examples.

    Your response must be at least 75 words in length.

QUESTION 2

  • Pick one of the following key focusing events, and describe the events that led to the disaster, key lessons learned, corrective actions, and any significant impacts to politics, emergency management practices, laws, policy or regulations that occurred as a result: Mississippi Flood of 1927, Great Dust Bowl of 1930’s, Texas City Explosion of 1947, or the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918.

QUESTION 3

  • Describe the crisis management difficulties in response to the BP Deepwater Horizon. What were the competing directives that could be considered governing for this disaster? What problems did this cause in execution of response and recovery actions? In your view, which directive should have been invoked, and why? Has this competing directive gap been rectified?

    Your response must be at least 75 words in length.

QUESTION 4

  • The textbook discussed one important aspect of major focusing events and the political issues that can affect response and recovery efforts. In major catastrophes, such as Hurricane Katrina or the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, political controversies and agendas may cause independent actions by lawmakers that detract from disaster response and recovery efforts. Discuss the dynamic that causes this phenomenon, and describe what actions can be taken to reduce the likelihood of this occurring or would minimize the impact.

    Question 5

  • Describe the communications confusion problems that inhibited effective response and recovery from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. What caused these problems and what actions would you recommend to prevent similar communications confusion in future major focusing events.

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.

QUESTION 6

  • Describe the formation of DHS. What changes to DHS and FEMA were made following Hurricane Katrina? Why?

Your response must be at least 75 words in length.
