Debate the claim that famines are caused more by human actions (or inactions) than by environmental forces. What scientific evidence would you need to have to settle this question? What hypothesis could you test to help resolve the debate? I would conclude that it is a Mother Nature issue, because of the entire drought in some places and it won’t allow farming because it is to dry. We would have to test a dry area and a wet area with plants being planted in both areas to see which stay alive longer. 5.
