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

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?

You probably know someone with asthma, or maybe you have this condition yourself. Certain kinds of air pollutants, like ozone, can make asthma and other lung conditions worse. Ozone found high in the atmosphere is called "good ozone" because it protects life on Earth from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. Ozone can also be found close to the surface of the Earth, where it is considered “bad ozone” because it's the main ingredient of smog and is harmful for people to breathe. Bad ozone is created from pollutants that go through chemical reactions in the atmosphere. Climate change is likely to increase the amount of bad ozone in the air because more ozone is created when the temperature is warm.

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? 



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.

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

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?



Read this paragraph.

The new StarTrekker shoe has several features in common with the Athenia running shoe, including stability, tread depth, and comfort. Although the two shoes are nearly equal in these areas, the Athenia has a more modern look and comes in the latest colors. The two also vary in price, with the Athenia coming in thirty dollars higher than the StarTrekker.
