You will focus on the following Issue: “Is the Paris Climate Change Agreement a Good Deal?” This assignment offers you an opportunity to critically assess both sides of the argument (there could be more than two sides, but we are only discussing two passes here!). First, read both sides of the issue. Then, explain whether each perspective what we might call the “critical assessment test.” Here, you might assess the logic, examples and conclusions that each author is using to make his or her case. Finally, explain what your perspective is on the above question. Do you agree with one side or the other? Explain.
- Make sure to draw on An Introduction to Global Studies in your assessment of the issue. Cite accordingly. Hint: What does the assigned chapter from this week say about global environmental problems? This could be one connection to make. Does this chapter lend support to the Yes or No side that you have read?
