Week 10 Assignment – Comparing Climate Change Mitigation Strategies
The cost of reducing environmental risks to human health is great, but the cost of the risks themselves are even greater, in illness, lost productivity, and mortality. This truth makes it very important to weigh the value and effectiveness of mitigation strategies aimed at environmental challenges.
Write a paper using the following instructions:
1. Select and research a specific environmental challenge resulting from climate change. Explain the characteristics of the environmental challenge, including its geographic scope, key stakeholders, economic costs, and health impacts.
2. Explain how climate change has created or worsened this environmental challenge. Support your explanation with references.
3. Evaluate the effectiveness of mitigation efforts by comparing two examples related to this environmental challenge.
4. Use at least four sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library or review library guides.
