What’s at stake?

Government representatives:
Assume you are the US government representative
Please answer the following questions: (Use, Question:xxx; Answer: xxx)
Basic facts: location, geography, wealth, size, key industries, political system.
How will climate change affect the US and US constituents?
To what extent have you contributed to climate change in terms of past emissions?
What do you have in terms of resources and capacities for mitigation and adaptation? Will you be able to reduce emissions on a big scale?
What negotiating positions has your party taken up in the past? What was your status with regard to the Kyoto Protocol, the Paris Agreement, the Glasgow Agreement and to a potential new protocol?
Have any recent economic, political, or societal changes affected these positions?
To which official and unofficial coalitions have you belonged? Are there countries that might have significant influence on your position?
How much does public opinion influence your position? Are there any opinion polls that reveal public attitudes toward climate change among your constituents?
Are there key industries whose stance would affect your position? Essentially, this background research will enable you to determine your party’s interests and likely negotiating positions or tactics. It will also enable other parties to better understand where your interests lie
1. Write down all answers for above answers specifically (over 200 words for each question)
2. Then, make a organized and clear presentation PPTs to include all the content you covered.

The third can be in any category, but it must be specific and distinct from the first two.

Please respond to this prompt.
Clearly describe 3 distinct ways in which mankind is causing a negative environmental impact.
For each negative impact describe 3 specific actions that can be taken to minimize the impact. One must be a regulatory or incentive-based policy which must be justified with detail and feasibility information. One must be something that you personally can change to reduce the impact or something that you are already doing. The third can be in any category, but it must be specific and distinct from the first two.
For each action, please provide detail on implementation and feasibility.

Interesting topic!

Learning Goal: I’m working on a environmental science question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
I have to create my annotated bibliography for a literature review paper that I will be writing later on in the semester. My topic follows and my assignment is at the bottom.
This was my proposal: In my literature review, my focus will be on how planting native plants can reduce the intensity and frequency of sand and dust storms. It will investigate how plants are able to harden the soil through increased soil moisture and prevent wind erosion, which further limits sand and dust storms. My review will also thoroughly discuss the multiple health and environmental effects associated with dust storms and how plants can mitigate these effects. These storms can cause multiple environmental health hazards and can carry respiratory pollutants and allergens over large distances, affecting communities far away from the source of dust and sand particles. Additionally, these storms can negatively effect plants, agriculture, and wildlife. This is done since these storms can cause the loss of plant tissue, reduce crop production by covering seedlings in dust, and affect marine life as the sunlight is blocked out by the dust cloud.

Stopping the sandstorms


This was the professor’s response:
Overall Feedback
Interesting topic! A couple thoughts: I would try to geographically bound your topic (e.g., to a biome or set of countries). Also, when accessing literature, make sure that the majority of sources are from peer reviewed journals – it seems that many of the sources on this list are not peer reviewed. A few white papers or even news articles are okay, but you should be mostly drawing from the scientific literature in your annotated bibliography and subsequent writing. Perhaps one of your conclusions will be that more research needs to be done on the topic if the literature in this space is thin!
ASSIGNMENT:
Annotated Bibliography. Students will create an annotated bibliography of the most relevant sources of information related to their chosen topic, and based on the content of the sources in this bibliography, publish a thesis statement that will form the core of the literature review.Due: Thursday Sep 22, 2022
Length: 10-20 sources and associated annotations, plus thesis statement
Content:Sources and Annotations.Source Formatting. Sources should be consistently formatted using a single reference style (e.g., APA, Chicago).
Source Content. All sources should include author, title, date, source (e.g., journal name), and information needed to identify the specific reference (e.g., URL, chapter or page numbers, doi).
Annotation: Summary. Report on the content of the source, such as the main arguments or the topic covered. The length of the annotation will vary depending on the source, but 100-200 words is a typical range.
Annotation: Assessment. Evaluate the source, commenting on its utility, reliability, bias, and/or differences/similarities with other sources.
Thesis Statement. Summarize initial conclusions about the major trends across all sources.

Dr. jackson stated that he believes that it is not too late to correct problems of the past and to once have health fish populations and oceans.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a environmental science multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
1. Where do scientists believe that half or more of the earth’s species live?
2. How much tropical rainforest is destroyed annually?
3. What kinds of practices or activities contribute to the destruction of tropical rain forests?
4. What is the “hotspot” of tropical destruction according to Dr. Lawrence? Why is this occurring?
5. What has been the trend in the amount of tropical rainforest covering the earth over the last
50yrs?
6. According to Dr. Lawrence, what is the last great biological frontier for discovery of new
species?
7. What happens to a large tropical rainforest when roads are developed that cut through it?
8. Describe the typical conditions inside a tropical rainforest.
9. What occurs on the border between a tropical rainforest and a dry, open, windy grassland?
What happens over time to the plant species found along that border?
10. Explain what Dr. Lawrence meant when he said “whenever there is an environmental change,
there are winners and losers.”
11. QuHow do scientists identify species of trees in the rainforest?
12. What did the scientists discover about bird species that had their habitat disrupted by road?
13. Why are coral reefs sometimes called the rainforest of the sea?
14. What occurred in the control coral reefs 2yrs after the oil spill?
15. How does Dr. Jackson attempt to understand and estimate the variety of species that existed in
the ocean before human disturbance?
16. What is the baseline, according to Dr. Jackson?
17. Which activities have contributed to the decline in ocean conditions and biodiversity?
18. What does Dr. Jackson estimate has occurred with the population of large fish since 1950?
19. How important are coral reefs to ocean ecosystems? What is their function?
20. How does overfishing impact the ocean ecosystem? How does it lead to destruction of the coral
reef?
21. What is the “rise of slime” according to Dr. Jackson?
22. Why are herbivorous fish important to coral reef ecosystems?
23. What happens to coral when seaweed levels are reduced?
24. Dr. Jackson stated that he believes that it is not too late to correct problems of the past and to
once have health fish populations and oceans. Do you agree or disagree? Why?

Learning Goal: I’m working on a environmental science spreadsheet and need a sample publish to help me learn.
Needed a dataset on the IOT devices that had a cyber attack. The dataset should be from either GitHub or IEEE dataport and it should contain good amount of attributes(>10) and it must be a .csv file
