SOC 450 – Threats to the Global Environment PowerPoint Deck and Their Counterarguments

 
Assignment 2 – Threats to the Global Environment PowerPoint Deck and Their Counterarguments (250 points)
The United Nations has continued to retain you as a consultant for a two-part project. Many member states are dissatisfied with the progress of the eight Millennium Development Goals for international development that were established by that body in 2000. They see a substantial disconnect between what issues developed and developing countries believe are priorities. For example, Burundi wants one of the goals to focus on food security, while Austria is adamant that a major global issue should be the negotiation of ceasefires in countries in the midst of civil wars.
PART I – Initial Argument
You have been asked to identify issues you feel most impact the global environment unfavorably, so of the eight major threats listed below, choose the four that you consider the most critical.
Energy sourcesCivil warGlobalizationPoor health of entire populationsLack of educational opportunities;Cultural taboosInappropriate uses of technologyClimate change

Your UN contract calls for you to:

Develop a minimum of four slides per issue, for a minimum total of 16 slides.
Provide at least a paragraph on each slide in the notes section (see the example at the right) that includes a history of each issue and what type of economic, political, social or environmental threat the problem poses to populations in the developing world. To review how to configure your PowerPoint slides, please refer to your com account or reach out to your instructor ahead of time.
For each issue, use one of your four slides to create a graph or chart that analyzes the data you have collected.

PART II – Counterargument
Some member states are challenging your four recommendations from above and questioning why you did not include other issues they believe should be priorities. As such, there are four remaining threats in the list of major global issues that you did not include in your PowerPoint deck.
1. Choose two of these four major threats and write one solid paragraph on each one (each being at least three-quarters of a page long) explaining why they are less of a priority to the global environment than the four you selected in the first part of the assignment.
2. Each counterargument must include:

an opening statement describing why the issue might be perceived by some as a threat;
three reasons arguing why you did not identify each of the two issues as a threat; and
a conclusion

3. For the entire two-part assignment, cite at least eight credible sources excluding Wikipedia, dictionaries, and encyclopedias. These must be full citations using the Strayer Writing Standards (see below). Do not list sources by their URLs (i.e., www.______.com).
4. For a brief list of resources for this assignment, please see the end of the course guide.
This course requires use of Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) for the citation of your sources (you may no longer use APA), so please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for details. (Note: The link for SWS is located in the top, left-hand column of your Blackboard shell under ‘Getting Started,’ and you may be prompted to enter your login credentials to view this file.)
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are to:

propose a plan to address the issue of global food security in underdeveloped countries that considers the impact of prior solutions; and
assess the threats to the global environment and make suggestions for potential mitigation initiatives.

Note: Grading for this assignment will be based on the quality of your answers, the logic and organization of the paper, your use of language and your writing skills.
