This is the week one work

 

My research topic choice for this assignment would be global climatic change.  The main driving force that have made be settle for global climate  change as the research topic is the sensitivity of the topic. It is  actually true that the global climate is changing and there has been the  emergence of global warming which have even threatened human life. What  is quite astonishing is the fact that the primary causes of global  warming are human activities. I believe this is equally a strong topic  as it addresses broad spectrum of issues.

Identification of scholarly sources for research requires  consideration of several feature that include, sources well written by  scholars and researcher, the language used in authoring equally need to  be descent in relation to the discipline being addressed. The other way  of identifying scholarly source is examining if it has been peer  reviewed or researched. (Ashford University, 2018)  In providing a  summary of two scholarly sources to support my research topic, my first  choice would be The economics of global warming authored by  William cline. This source examines the costs and benefits of an  aggressive program of global action to limit the greenhouse effect  revolving around warming of the earth due to accumulation of carbon  dioxide. (Cline, 1992)

My second scholarly source choice is titled Greenhouse-gas emission targets for limiting global warming to 2 C  authored by Meinshausena and five more authors. This source probes the  relationship of the greenhouse emissions in relation to limiting global  warming. (Meinshausen, et al, 2009) I’m of the opinion that the two  sources would be critical in my research topic as they have information  that is directly related to global warming. A soft PDF copy of one of  the peer reviewed article has further been attached.
