Question description

This is an initial discussion post!! just please include all references that you may have to use.

Place yourself in the following scenario:

You are a prominent climate scientist and had published your groundbreaking research results in high quality peer-reviewed journals, such as Science and Nature. You have been able to communicate very effectively over the years your research at scientific conferences and in specialty books and articles. But here lies an important test in front of you.

Can you effectively communicate scientific research to the public? This challenge has been presented to you recently as a local newspaper, which has a well-read “Science and the Environment” section, has asked you to write a short article for their dedicated readers about how climate change affects bees.

The purpose of the article is to make the readers aware of the problem and send them a message that they can help. The newspaper suggested the title “What is the buzz about climate change and bees?”

You will need to forget about your well-polished scientific jargon and address your audience in an everyday language if you are to catch their attention. Consider reading this resource on Argument & Audience (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. from Excelsior OWL.

This activity aligns with Module Outcome 1.

In about 300 words, write your newspaper article addressing these three questions:

  1. What is known so far about bee declines (observed population declines and potential causes)?
  2. How might climate change affect bees (and other pollinators)?
  3. How will the decline in bees affect other species and ecosystems, including human-dominated/created ecosystems (i.e., agricultural systems such as crops)?
