Climate Change News Article Assignment
The purpose of this assignment is to apply knowledge of how the earth functions climatically ACCORDING TO De Blij to recent media coverage regarding climate change. It matters not weather (haha, get it??) you believe in climate change at the hands of humans. We are just exploring ways in which to apply your learning from de Blij and to recognize bias in sources.
You will need to locate two media responses to climate change. One article will support the concept that humans are affecting global climate and one article will support the idea that climate change is not occurring, or if it is, it is not because of human-environment interaction.
With these articles, you will:
Cite your source: Information on where or who published and when and the author – we won’t worry about specific citation styles for this assignment, but you do need to give credit to the source.
Summary of the source: Summarize the article (a paragraph or two should suffice)
Response of de Blij? How would de Blij would respond to the source. Would he agree or disagree and why? What questions would he possibly ask? Why do YOU say this about de Blij (Include information from Chapter 5 to support your argument as to what de Blij might say)
Examples of two articles can be found on chasetheworld.org under Climate Change Assignment and at these links:
You may type your responses to the articles, or you may fill in the Climate Change Assignment form on the back of these instructions.
