Environmental Problem of Climate Change

ENVSTY 101 Memo – What’s the problem?

This memo asks you to take three steps: read critically; research effectively; and, write efficiently. Please review Chapter 19 and the Wedge Stabilization Strategy article (Pacala & Socolow) and compose a 650-750 word memo that outlines:

● The nature of the environmental problem of climate change and the human role in the development of that problem; and,
● The prospects for solving the problem (or at least mitigating it) over the course of the next thirty years using illustrative examples.

While it will be appropriate to refer to suggestions outlined in the book and the article, you must support your assessment by pointing to at least four examples of how some of those suggested solutions are actually being implemented. The memo should be analytical and reflect your research rather than express opinions.

Here is a suggested outline to help you stay on track:

Introduction – please address the nature of the environmental problem of climate change and the human role in the development of the problem. Introduce the problem to set the stage for the main points you will make throughout your paper. (2 points)

Body – Assessment of the problem and prospective solutions. Discuss how suggested solutions are being implemented to some degree. Provide four illustrative examples (be specific). (4 points)
Example 1 – mitigation

Conclusion – briefly summarize the main points described throughout your paper. Conclude with a final statement regarding the examples you have outlined. (2 points)

Works Cited/References – list and cite all sources used throughout your memo using MLA or APA format. Do not cite any sources not used in your memo. (1 point)

Proper grammar/spelling/usage/format (1 point)

Information supporting your suggestions must be appropriately quoted/attributed/cited. You should NOT employ quotations of more than a few words since they reflect someone else’s thinking/analysis/opinion, rather you ought to effectively summarize and paraphrase references and attribute/cite them in accordance with appropriate academic standards noted in the syllabus and excerpted here with some helpful links.
