There is scientific consensus on the reality of human-created environmental change and degradation.  In fact, it’s projected that today’s children will live through three times as many climate disasters as their grandparents (Links to an external site.) . And yet, there is deep resistance to the facts. Drawing on everything you’ve read (see below), what do you think it will take for human beings to respond to this human-generated threat? Please answer in 3-4 pages.
Please use correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc, in all written documents (not doing so reflects a bad faith effort).
Please use proper citations when you quote or paraphrase a text. 
Please write your responses coherently, and articulate, develop, and organize your thoughts clearly and with purpose in response to the assignments. Do not let your writing itself be an impediment (carelessness in writing also reflects a bad faith effort).
In your response, it is essential that you evidence thoughtful and probing engagement with the module material. While you do not need to quote every text that you read or watch for a module, nevertheless you need to demonstrate in your written response that you have been patient with and attentive to the various dimensions of an issue that a module content is teaching, and that you are taking the assignment seriously and giving it the due attention, care, thoughtfulness, and time it deserves.
