Question description

we have six people here, you have to create a PPT for the presentation, and each page in PPT should have a comments to explain the content in the page. so we will just read the comments in the presentation.

Presentation General Information Each presentation should follow a standard presentation method in PowerPoint. All presentations must have these seven parts. Here are the content headings that are required. 1. Title and introductions of the group. 2. Purpose. 3. Learning outcomes (specific >things= students must know) B think about what you want them to know and make only a few short learning outcomes. No more than three or four learning outcomes. 4. Main body (follow the guidelines I have given). 5. Review of the main points (VERY SHORT!). 6. Sources of Information (show website URLs). 7. Learning activity. Please give me a copy of the PowerPoint or down-load it to my USB storage device (jump drive). The entire presentation including learning activity should be no more than 30 minutes. The learning activity is meant to be a way of having your fellow students retain what they have heard. Be creative: a quiz, relay race, Jeopardy game, etc. Feel free to divide the class by sections of the auditorium, pairs or groups of three students, regular class groups, impromptu groups or even the whole class. Remember that this activity must fit into the 30 minutes. You may each present a part of the topic or have one or more people give the talk. Everybody will be rated by the group for their effort in helping put together the talk. Each person will complete a Confidential Peer Review form. Specific Guidance and Information on Politics and Environmental Geology In general the public does not appreciate the problems of living with an active earth. You know about hazardous earth processes. What do governments believe and understand about geological processes? Your topic is about politics and the way it may interfere with an understanding of hazardous geological processes. Have fun on this! I have put a number of thoughts on the list below so you can see the scope of this topic. Chose what you think is important. You will probably want to remind the class of what the scientific method is and how plausible hypotheses are generated. There are several ways of working toward a conclusion. Here are some: • Collect data and develop a hypothesis from it (deduction). • Propose a hypothesis and then test it with data (induction). • • Propose multiple hypotheses to test and reduce possibilities to one hypothesis [if possible]. Use peer review. I think you must answer the question “How does politics affect scientific research and communication to the public on climate change and the understanding of hazardous geological processes?” Politics can be major ideologies, the policies of a country or entity, or it can be corporate politics. Consider the role of politics in some or all of the following. • Understanding and communicating climate change information. • Assessing hazardous geological processes in an area. • Setting land use by-laws or legislation. • Planning for building codes, enforcement of codes, public education and policies that make use of science and scientific logic. • Enforcement of “rules” through inspection, etc. All of these require resources of people and funding as well as planning and enforcement. Denials? Yes. Consider President Ronald Reagan’s denial of climate change. President Donald Trump? Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper? Are there other examples of denial coupled with politics? Why does this happen in climate change? Is it ‘visible’ elsewhere in scientific investigations? Consider the topic of “evolution.” And finally how do people, movies, the courts or individuals make changes? Think about the impact of the movie An Inconvenient Truth. Was the movie truthful or did it stretch the truth? Al Gore has a new TED talk which might be useful. And lastly consider Keller’s five fundamental principles in relation to politics. • Discuss politics and environmental geoscience in terms of Keller’s five fundamental concepts. [You can add answers to these concepts as you do your presentation, or you can put them into one section.] o Human population growth. More people means more resources needed and more population possibly in harm’s way of hazardous earth processes. o Sustainability. Sustainability is important – How does politics prevent clear thinking about ensuring the next generation has resources (including money) and is prepared for hazardous earth processes? o Earth as a system. How does the earth system influence our leaders’ choices of action? o Hazardous earth processes. How does political action interfere with preparation for hazardous earth processes? o Scientific knowledge and values. Science plays an active role in researching, describing and perhaps mitigating hazardous earth processes. How can geoscientists get more credibility in dealing with government agencies and leaders? How do they get “people” to listen to them and their warnings? Here are some fascinating links.

hey there,i have posted the answers, kindly confirm and contact me if you have any questions,thank you


• The purpose of this presentation is to investigate how best to address the
global climate predicament?

• Clearly describe geological processes and their benefits.
• Clearly outline the role of politics in communicating climate change
• Demonstrate the role of politics assessing hazardous geological processes.
• Clearly describe rules enforcement.

• Environmental geology is an applied science concerned with the practical
applications of principles of geology in the solving of environmental

• The scientific method is a body of techniques for investigating various
phenomena, acquiring new information, correcting and integrating previous
• A hypothesis is a conjecture based on knowledge obtained while
formulating the question, that may explain any given behaviour (Baek, Lee ,
Kim , Lee , & Song , 2017).

• A natural hazard is a threat of a naturally occurring event that possess a negative effect
on human beings know as natural disaster.
• Natural hazards and possible disasters include: earthquakes, volcanic eruptions,
Tsunami, landslides, subsidence, floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, asteroid
• All these problems have been occurring throughout earth’s history, but have only
become hazardous due to the negative effect they cause on human beings.

• Despite the fact that natural hazards cannot be eliminated, it is possible to
minimize the magnitude of the damage done as a result of its occurrence.

• To mitigate the damages, it is important to understand the processes.
thereafter, people can develop an action to minimize the risks.

• These processes are beneficial to humans because they are responsible for
the formation of the earth’s habitability.

• Volcanism has been know...
