Tragedy of the Commons


How the 21st century issue is related to The Tragedy of the Commons?

they are related because the tragedy of the commons is about how if there are to many animals in an area it can take a good area and slowly ruin that area because the animals start taking over, and that relates to the 21st century because we keep gaining more and more animals which is taking over the environment.

Who are the “key players” within the issue?

Farmers. They start of with about one animal and then they keep gaining and gaining them. one animal wouldn't be a problem but farmers keep adding animals which is slowly ruining the environment that they are living in.


When a farmer gets one cow, and then over time gets more, All the cows make a good area into a bad one, because there are so many of them so they over power the environment.
