Short Assignment: Bad News and Good News
Q1. Choose 2 articles from the Bad Signs. The two articles must come from different categories (i.e. you can’t choose both articles from “Fossil Fuels”).
Many people, upon reading these two articles, would see them as unrelated issues. Based on what you’ve learned from the class, what connections do you see between these articles that others might miss? What underlying principles help explain both issues?
Q2. Choose 1 article from the Good Signs.
In this article, what method is being used to address sustainability issues?
Notes:
* Make sure it is clear to us which articles you are discussing.
* You can refer to other online sources if you wish, but be sure not to plagiarize.
* This is the only essay question for this week, so make sure your response is thoughtful.
* We’ve tried to select articles that are freely available online. However, if you do have trouble accessing a particular article, try using the UCI VPNLinks to an external site. (set to UCIFull for access to library resources)
