HIS/HUM 381 WEEK TWO REFLECTION 2 Week Two Reflection This week, we discussed climate change, natural resources and other issues surrounding the environment.

However, I did learn something new and really devastating related to the topic of air pollution. The last article I read was about the effects of air pollution on children’s health and it brought out many different emotions like disappointment, sadness and anger.

    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.
