Question description

The Impact of Climate Change on Health

Scientists are able to make very accurate predictions about the amount of temperature change that will occur due to future greenhouse gas emissions. Using computer models, scientists are also able to predict how increments in temperature change will impact the world around us. Often the way things are phrased in a news source can sensationalize a topic beyond what the scientists’ research actually suggests. Reporters want to grab our attention and impress us with the importance of the findings in the research, but this approach can turn possible outcomes into a sure thing just by changing a few words. There is a big difference in the prospect of an event occurring depending on whether it is likely, possible, or certain. Watch for these terms in reading the materials provided for this and future assignments.

There are many different factors that must be considered when we discuss the impact of climate change around the world. This activity will focus on the challenging idea of how climate change will affect the health of our children. Children’s health is most vulnerable to small, incremental changes, and our children will be dealing with the results of climate change long after we adults are gone. The shifting of rain and drought patterns, the range of temperature changes, and the resulting changes in plants, insects, and animals—the global environmental zones will be in flux over the next century. The readings here will discuss these changes and how scientists predict they will affect the health and well-being of our children.

Title: the children in the world are suffering the change in climate
Author: Alegra Pocinki and Richard V. Reeves
Publication: Brookings Blog,2016
Note: All responses must be supported by information from your readings. Provide specific
quotations or data to validate your position in each response. Use APA (American
Psychological Association) style in-text citations and references.
Part 1
1. Where did the author of the Standard-Times article, A. Kuchment, get the scientific
information he/she is reporting, the "source"? (Give the full name of the journal or
publication, website, etc.)
2. Does this source have a special purpose or goal? (Go to the website of the
journal/publisher and see who publishes this(i.e., what organization or government
agency), and check their stated objectives or goals. Is this a “peer reviewed” scientific
journal?)
Use the EC (Excelsior College) Library resource, Evaluation Criteria, to help you evaluate a
source.

The scientific information was obtained by the author from Future Of Children in Princeton
University.
