Are climate change and global warning a threat to the US and the rest of the world?
If you state, Yes, climate change and global warning are a threat to the US and world, provide two reasons why they are a threat. If you state, No, climate change and global warning are not a threat to the US and world, you will need to provide two reasons why they are not. All reasons (topic sentences) must be supported by data-based, scientific studies. Below I provide an example of a source on this topic. Find several sources to support your thesis. NASA. Global Climate Change, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, updated 20 June 2019 https://climate.nasa.gov/ Accessed 24 June 2019. (Note: I cannot insert a hanging indent in D2L, but please do so on the works cited/references in your document.) In your introductory paragraph, provide background information on climate change and global warming. End your introductory paragraph with your thesis sentence, underlined. Begin each body paragraph with an underlined topic sentence–a clear reason in support of your thesis. Be sure to use references that provide sufficient evidence for the claims you make in your body paragraphs. Using a quote from a source that simply restates your claim or reason isn’t sufficient support. In your conclusion, bring your argument to a close. When you proofread your document, review the grading guidelines to be sure that you have met the minimum requirements for each part of the essay. References note: Use a minimum of 2 authoritative, credible online sources to support your argument, at least 1 source in each body paragraph. However, simply inserting one quote into a paragraph is rarely sufficient support. Each quote should be introduced in the text: let the reader know in advance whom you are quoting and the context of the source. All sources are correctly cited in the text using parenthetical citations where needed, and each source is included in a Works Cited or Reference section at the end of the document, following either MLA or APA style guidelines consistently, (see course textbook or the Purdue OWL: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/resources.html. Do not cite sources in the body of the essay with Internet addresses (URLs), nor only use a URL for the reference at the end of the document. However, do include the URL at the end of the reference so that I can access your sources.
