Lab Research Report 2: Global Warming: Cause and Mitigation

Among the most controversial topics 
in physical science, global warming has received a great deal of attention 
during the past decade. Given its great impacts on both humans and the 
environment, lawmakers and scientists must weigh heavily the information that 
they are presented. Explore this debate in more detail by evaluating both the 
scientific basis of this phenomenon and the human role in global 


Write a three to five (3-5) page 
paper in which you:

Compare and contrast natural 
versus anthropogenic climate changes. Include specific examples of 

 Take a position as to whether or 
not global warming is taking place. Provide three (3) lines of evidence to 
support your position.

 Assess two (2) current mitigation 
strategies for global warming, such as carbon sequestration, carbon taxing,

discussion on the effectiveness of this mitigation strategy, as well as its 
potential costs and policy implications.

 Speculate what policy changes you 
would propose to help stabilize global climate and which business sectors or 
nations would be held to more strict standards if you implement your proposed
