Compare and contrast natural versus anthropogenic climate changes.

Among  the most controversial topics in physical science, global warming has  received a great deal of attention during the past decade. Given its  great impact on both humans and the environment, lawmakers and  scientists must heavily weigh the information that they are presented.  Explore this debate in more detail by evaluating both the scientific  basis of this phenomenon and the human role in global warming.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Compare and contrast natural versus anthropogenic climate changes. Include at least two (2) specific examples of each.
  2. Take  a position as to whether or not global warming is taking place. Provide  three (3) lines of evidence to support your position.
  3. Assess  two (2) current mitigation strategies for global warming, such as  carbon sequestration, carbon taxing, clean coal technology, higher fuel  efficiency standards, and so on. Analyze the effectiveness of this  mitigation strategy, as well as its potential costs and policy  implications.
  4. Speculate  on the policy changes that you would propose to help stabilize global  climate and determine the business sectors or nations that would be held  to more strict standards if you were to implement your proposed  policies.
  5. Use at least four (4) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your report must follow these formatting requirements:
