ENGL107-02 Unit 1 – Discussion Board Topic:  To persuade the readers to help make a difference in stopping Global Warming. Thesis:  The consequences of global warming carries out an increasing risk for the environment we live in. Main point 1:   Global warming is the escalation of Earth’s average surface temperature due to carbon dioxide transmission from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which traps heat that would escape from Earth. Main point 2:  The ramification of global warming include melting of polar caps, drought, severe hurricanes and massive fires   Main point 3:  Due to the change in the atmosphere, it can cause severe loss of aquatic animals due to heated ocean water, Terrestrial animal and their habitats. The changing weather will have more of an effect on us than the animals that spend their lives in the wild. Conclusion:  Apart from believing in global warming or not, it’s effects can’t possibly be a bad thing if it makes people more conscious of all our actions and how it affects the Earth than it means we as a human race are evolving.

Comment:  In this article a high school teacher, who teaches accelerated English classes, says she has noticed a decrease in the “depth and analysis of the students’” written work. Ms. Kristen Purcell, director of research at Pew, said. “What we’re labeling as ‘distraction,’ some see as a failure of adults to see how these kids process information, they’re not saying distraction is good, but that the label of ‘distraction’ is a judgment of this generation.” Lytle, R. (2011, July 11). Study: Emerging Technology Has Positive Impact in Classroom.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
