Climate change is a complex and complicated issue that causes polarization of society like few other social concerns. 

 Assignment: 

1. Using your own cultural knowledge and social awareness, make an argument either supporting, or opposing the importance of addressing climate change. (Your cultural knowledge is made up of your beliefs, values, norms, religious philosophy, traditions, customs, and ideas).

2.   Include in your argument at least 1 organization that supports your position.  The organization can be a local, state, or a national organization.  What are some of the values and beliefs that you share with the organization?

3. As scholars, it is important to remember, that to truly understand the different perspectives of an argument, debate, or discussion, it becomes essential to “take the role of the other”.  To better understand this concept, include in your paper an explanation as why someone would feel differently than you concerning the importance of climate change. (Ex: Once you make an argument in support of the importance of climate, create a converse position as to why you think someone would oppose it!)

4. Current research data provided by the PEW Research Center illustrate that opinion toward climate change has changed over time.
