U.S.: Perspectives on Climate Change Mitigation

This week we will focus on Adaptation and Mitigation.

  1. U.S.: Perspectives on Climate Change Mitigation (Locate at Washington DC on Google Earth)
  2. Global: Climate-Resilient Pathways: Adaptation, Mitigation, and Sustainable Development (Locate at Washington DC on Google Earth)
    Step 2: Consider how the element of climate change you chose to read about impacts a place of interest to you, then write a small vignette (200-400 words). You should focus on why that place is vulnerable and what is being done about it. Your vignette should include answers to the following questions:
    • What is the threat?
    • Why is that place/regional vulnerable?
    • What are the forecasts in terms of environmental change?
    • What are the forecasted impacts on communities?
    • What are the solutions? (If applicable)?
    • Make sure to talk about two different cities – anywhere in world
