The first sentence: “A surprising new study released Monday by UCLA’s Institute For Child Development revealed that human babies, long thought by psychologists to be highly inquisitive and adaptable, are actually extraordinarily stupid.” While this is clearly a humorous article (which definitely should NOT be taken seriously), it does create a perfect opportunity to respond with good evidence of how infants are surprisingly intelligent.
Based on what you learned in this unit and the e-book, react to this claim.
In what ways are infants, and young children, surprisingly smart?
What are their limitations and what are important cognitive developmental milestones in the first few years of life?
e amount of the before mentioned gases in the atmosphere has been rising now since the start of industrialization, making them with 100% certainty one of the major shareholders to the enhancement of the greenhouse effect (Chuvieco 2008). Their increase is a concrete objection to the fulfilment of the mitigation goal. 3 Expression of global climate change and possible surveillance methods The different aspects of climate change set a chain reaction in action, including global temperature rise, warming oceans, declining Arctic sea ice and ocean acidification – just to name a few. In the following, the most important and severe impacts will be presented in more detail. 3.1 Rising temperature The average surface temperature of the Earth has been rising since the beginning of the industrialization in the early 1850s, that is since the beginning of the man-made enhanced greenhouse effect. The rise is a consequence of the increased emissions of carbon dioxide and other humanly created gases into the atmosphere. They are heat-entrapping gases sealing off the ozone layer and hindering most of the warmth of the sun from being reflected into space again, thus capturing this excess warmth in the atmosphere (Rotmans 2012). This reveals itself in the simple fact that at the Earth’s surface, each of the last three decades has been measurably hotter than any decade before the industrialization. To encapsulate, land and ocean surface temperature combined have warmed around 0.9 oC just in the last 50 years according to the IPCC 2014, and in the past century it has been around 1.5 oC. The shift of temperature normals combined with probable heat waves and the foretold ice sheet melting will be strong indicators of climate change and can hint upcoming issues regarding agriculture, water resources, and thus human and environmental health (National Research Council 2010).>GET ANSWER
