Question description

Read this excerpt from "A Student's Guide to Global Climate Change."

Climate change could make it too hot to grow certain crops, and droughts caused by climate change could reduce the amount of water available for irrigation. Climate change is also likely to cause stronger storms and more floods, which can damage crops. Higher temperatures and changing rainfall patterns could help some kinds of weeds and pests to spread to new areas. If the global temperature rises an additional 3.6°F, US corn production is expected to decrease by 10 to 30 percent.

What evidence does the author include to show that climate change is a problem?



Read this paragraph.

The overpopulation of deer in our area has been made worse by the building of a housing development on the outskirts of town. Once the forest was partially cleared for the development, the deer moved in, as their preferred habitat is a mix of open meadow and forest. Deer overpopulation has resulted in several problems in our neighborhood. People have hit deer with their cars, resulting in injuries and property damage. Deer are feeding in flower and vegetable gardens, and deer droppings are messy and potentially harmful.

Climate change poses risks for cities near the ocean. Places like Miami; New York City; New Orleans; and Venice, Italy, could flood more often or more severely if sea level continues to rise. If that happens, many people will lose their homes and businesses.

What can people do about it? 
Coastal cities can prepare for climate change by protecting or restoring natural shoreline buffers like sand dunes and wetlands, improving storm drainage systems, and building protective barriers where necessary.

Based on the excerpt, what conclusion can be drawn about protective barriers?

Climate change might allow some infectious diseases to spread. As winter temperatures increase, ticks and mosquitoes that carry diseases can survive longer throughout the year and expand their ranges, putting more people at risk. One big concern is malaria, a deadly disease spread by mosquitoes in many hot, humid parts of the world.

What can people do about it? 
People should take common-sense steps to avoid tick and mosquito bites, and communities can take actions to control mosquitoes, such as removing sources of standing water. It's also important for doctors to know the symptoms of diseases that could be spreading to new areas so they can diagnose and treat their patients.

Based on the excerpt, what conclusion can be drawn about standing water?

Climate change will lead to more hot days and more heat waves. As a result, people will need to use more air conditioning to stay cool. As people use more air conditioning, electricity shortages and blackouts could increase. Because most electricity is currently produced by burning fossil fuels, using more electricity to run air conditioners will also add more greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.

What problem does the excerpt present?

The new StarTrekker shoe has several features in common with the Athenia running shoe, including stability, tread depth, and comfort.
