Environmental Assessment (EA) and Environmental Impact Statements (EIS)
NEPA requires all projects that may adversely impact the environment to undergo the development of an EA or EIS. The initial scoping process is critical in determining how to proceed with a project. Do you think the scoping process entails too much research or does it not require enough? Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from outside resources, and properly cite any references. (The Ashford Online Library is a good resource for outside scholarly resources.) Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
