Richard Canada Extra Credit 11-5-10 The panel opened with Roger Peilke who based his argument on linking the decision-making with politics; politicians view climate change as more about values than using the facts. The people of the US recognize that climate change is a problem and around 70% actually support the fact that climate change poses a problem for the coming generations to deal with. We all just need to get the ball rolling on climate change and not focus our attention to wars in Iraq and other political quo. Americans also are stubborn too, even though they support the idea there needs to be something done they don’t like to be told what to do. Would rather have options to pick and choose from. Andrew Revkin was the next panelist to speak and he focuses his time on the sociological side of climate change. We need to focus more on changing the public’s behaviors and educate on the way they are affecting the climate change problem.

    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.
