Use the resources provided in the Canvas page (and any other reputable sources you may find to support your arguments — i.e., from NASA, NOAA or other government agencies, from published scientific journal articles, or from published articles in reputable news sources) to completely answer the following four questions regarding global change. Each essay should be at least 600 words in total (but no more than 800), for a grand total of at least 2400-3200 words total. Get ready to think like both a physical and a cultural geographer!
In your final assignment that you turn in on Canvas, BE SURE TO CITE YOUR REFERENCES, both IN the body of your paper and in a bibliography at the end, and use APA style of citation.

Feel free to complete the assignment in one document, answering each essay question individually.
1) Consider the various examples of evidence that show the global climate is changing, and that humans (including their greenhouse emissions) are (at least partly) responsible for this change. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issue reports detailing how climate change will affect people globally. What causes climate change? Define and explain the Greenhouse Effect. What are the consequences of climate change on the physical environment (i.e. weather, landscape) and humans from a global perspective in the long term especially with increased globalization?
2) Climate change, and the resulting rise in sea level, is likely to flood many parts of the world while generating weather extremes like extended droughts and heat waves in other places. You’ve been randomly assigned a location on the planet (one from Alaska (last name starts with A to E), Kenya (last name starts with F to J), The Netherlands (last name starts with K to O), Micronesia (last name starts with P to T), and Malaysia (last name starts with U to Z)) — how will climate change affect the physical environment (i.e. weather, landscape) and humans in this region, and how is it already affecting that region? How do these consequences impact the rest of the world in the long term? How should the government prepare for these changes, and what kinds of climate change preparedness plans are already in place?
3) How do global trade and climate change affect each other? What are the socio-economic, political, environmental and demographic implications of industrialization and climate change, choose one of the following sectors to discuss (agriculture, transportation, energy and manufacturing)? How do these implications influence human activities?
4) Many of the world’s poorest nations contribute the least to the fossil fuel emissions deemed responsible for climate change, yet these places will bear most of the consequences due to their physical and societal vulnerabilities. Do nations whose emissions contribute the most to climate change have a moral responsibility to pay for the effects of those emissions? Explain your personal and societal ethical concerns. And if so, how would they pay, and who would determine the kinds of damages those nations should be responsible for?
