Clearly the EX. sees the reality of Smog and are aging the necessary precautions to keep the people not only aware, but also safe from potential conflicts. The technology is too premature and the welfare of the people is far more important than the potential benefits Smog have to offer. Looking at the issue of labeling with a Kantian or Rawlins perspective may bring about the best way to solve the issue. Cant’s theory discusses using humanity as an end as opposed to a means to an end.
Opponents and proponents of Smog’s would agree to labeling if it were a discreet yet clear labeling and if it weren’t used as a scare tactic to alarm consumers. We believe that everyone would agree to this. Through the Rawlins perspective, this type of discreet yet clear labeling would reach an end that was mutually accepted by both SMOG producers and consumers. This would be a just way of mandating labeling while considering the SMOG companies position.
Applying the test of common sense in this case would approve the mandating of discrete labeling.
It informs the consumer and allows the SMOG companies to avoid a backlash of fear from consumers. In a recent Wall Street Journal Article, U. S. Families’ Organic Attitudes & Beliefs 2013 Tracking Study, inducted by KIWI Magazine in partnership with TOT (Organic Trade Organization), show that 32 percent of parents who learned about Smog in the news are significantly more likely to increase their organic purchases. The article continues to read, “Families continue to cite their desire for healthful options, especially for their children, in choosing organic foods.
The percentage of those claiming their primary reason is to avoid Smog has now reached 22 percent–up from 1 7 percent in 201 1. The leading reason given continues to be that parents desire to avoid pesticides and fertilizers (30 percent) and antibiotics or synthetic hormones (29 percent) in food they purchase for their families. ” The Iota’s CEO and Executive Director Christine Bushy colludes with “It is important for parents to know they have a choice when buying food for their families. Parents typically want the best for their children and strive to protect them in whatever way necessary. Whether organic or genetically modified, by parents being informed and aware of what they are feeding their children can give them peace of mind and satisfaction in regards to what their children are actually consuming. Overall, this discrete babbling approach makes practical sense. Currently the SMOG labeling issue is so convoluted that many products can get around having to label their products SMOG.
