Question Description

I’m studying for my Communications class and need an explanation.

An individual observation paper is a 3-4 page paper that uses a course concept to analyze an instance of communication about an environmental issue. (If you want, you can write three papers and I will drop the lowest of the three grades.) Your analysis should include (1) a brief description of the communicative text, event, or action in its original context (e.g., What it is? Who enacted it? Where did you encounter it? When did it happen?); (2) a clear exposition of the concept or concepts that you are using to guide your analysis, making direct quotation from relevant sources in support; (3) your analysis of the communication in terms of how well your selected concept or concepts disclose the communication’s influence (or failure to influence) those who become audience to it or those involved with it (including you if relevant); and (4) your conclusions about what you learned about environmental communication from the analysis. If possible, provide a copy of the communication. Each Individual Observation Paper is worth 15% for a total of 30% of your final grade.

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

watching you” (NPR Staff, 2019). Miss Thunberg asserted that it was wrong for her as a young
person to be reminding world leaders to act on climate change and for the leaders to turn to
youths like her for hope on climate action. Miss Thunberg emphasized world leaders’ lack of
action on climate change stressing that the world leaders have stolen her dreams and childhood
with empty words on climate action. She further addressed the consequences of inaction on
climate change by world leaders saying “People are suffering. People are dying. Entire
ecosystems are collapsing” (NPR Staff, 2019).
Thunberg further mentions that world leaders have ignored the consequences of climate
inaction and instead, focused their discourses on money and “fairy tales of eternal economic
growth” (NPR Staff, 2019). She goes ahead to argue that for more than three decades, science
has provided evidence of climate change. However, she emphasizes that world leaders are not
doing enough because there is no political will and solutions needed to tackle the urgent proble...
