Case 3: The Family Ranch and Oil and Gas Pipelines

This case for class discussion is about family-run ranches and how they are affected by gas and oil (fossil fuel) pipelines using their land. We include background information on the social and environmental issues. Then, we describe the critical events of a scenario that inspired the discussion and provide discussion prompts. We also include teaching notes and a short bibliography of relevant readings. While actively participating in case discussion, students can apply learned concepts to real situations, reflect on social issues and use critical thinking and ethical judgement to suggest a course of action for the people described in the case.
