Project 2: Earth Week Exercise Geology/Geography 106 (30 pts) During the week of April 19-23, BC Campus will be celebrating Earth Week - a week of lectures and events centered on environmental and social issues facing society today. This year the main theme of the week is “Food, the Environment and You”, & several of the talks have ties-ins to common natural and anthropogenic disasters. Our class will be taking advantage of a couple of the guest lectures. Assignment: (1) Attend the following lectures during our normally scheduled class time (Meet in Room C130 both days.). For each lecture, you should complete the pre-reading assignment, and write 5 substantial questions that you have relating to that topic (general questions or specific ones related to your reading.) Bring the questions to the talk – I encourage you to ask at least one. You will be responsible for this information on the next exam. 4/19 Famine and Hunger Speaker from Hopelink - Hunger in Bellevue Readings: Wikipedia Famine Page : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Famine Access to Affordable and Nutritious Food (USDA Report Summary) http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/AP/AP036/AP036_reportsummary.pdf 4/21 Global Climate Change Lisa Shaffer, Executive Director, Sustainability Solutions Institute, UC San Diego "Global weirding" - The real story of climate change Readings: Natural Hazards Text – Chapter 11, p. 357-78 (sections 11.3, 11.4., 11.5) (2) Attend one additional lecture or film during the week (see schedule attached)

    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.
