Environmental Science and Climate Change Discussion
Discussion 4 – Climate Change
Read and understand the attached pdf files , and then find an article about energy that relates to something that we’ve talked about in class or read about in “The Story of More” or “Healing Earth” which can be found in this link https://healingearth.ijep.net
This article should be written for a general audience. Add a brief summary of the article and your opinions about it.
To get full points, you must:
1) Post your article with the summary and opinions
2) Comment (two sentences) on the potential biases in your article: who was it produced by, do they have hidden agendas, are there clear biases in writing, do the sources that they pull from (if any) seem reliable.
3) Read and respond on two other student posts
Students post are below:
Student # (Isabel),
In this article, they discuss how they are not sure how much longer they are going to have these sources since they are so limited or they are so expensive to buy. With the amount we use within a day or within the year it is a lot more then the average use of energy. My opinion on this is that we should start to conserve what we do have now so it never comes down to us running out. With this research and articles, this should be more known since many people including myself, are not aware of the expenses that are put into the energy sources we have.
This article was made by a variety of people from the American Institution of Biological Science, I do not believe there are any potential bias within this article itself. With there research itself, it shows how big this problem can be if we continue to overuse our energy sources.
