Topic : Tipping Points and Abrupt Climate Change The assignment has two sections: Section A: Short Critical Reflections (30 marks) Section B: Essay (70 marks The critical reflection should present your own thoughts and responses to the reading. Thus, it is an interaction between the ideas in the reading and your own interpretation and response to what you have read. The critical reflection is a polished piece of writing that will be assessed using the criteria specified in “Assignment Instructions”. It should include an introduction, a body that presents your thoughts clearly and logically, and a conclusion. You may write in the first person but be sure to refer to some of the ideas that are introduced in the reading. Given what you now know about the science of climate change, write an essay of 750–1000 words on why you think (or do not think) climate change caused by anthropogenic sources is occurring. You will need to use what you learned about the science of climate change to support your position. A strong paper will incorporate some of the key concepts introduced in this module.
