Use your Cornell Notes from the video you watched to assist you in the following activity.

Please become more informed by addressing each of the following challenges faced by the world’s Poor in light of Climate Change.

H: Heat illnesses

E: Exacerbation of heart and lung disease

A: Asthma worsening

T: Traumatic injuries, especially during extreme weather events

W: Water and food-borne illnesses

A: Allergies worsening

V: Vector-borne diseases spreading, like Zika, dengue and Lyme

E: Emotional stresses increasing

The assignment:

Find a Science Based article that reports Reasoning and Evidence for each of the HEATWAVE problems that have the greatest negative impacts on the poor to lower income people. This means that you’ll find 8 different articles to complete the assignment.

Science Based

Climate Change

Article

Scientific Reasoning for the problem caused by the Acronyms

Topic and Climate Change

What is the Evidence?

List the Health Disparity Examples for each that the article provides.

2 or more health disparity (problems) caused by the “letter” in HEATWAVE

Post the link to the article

Remember the value of resources. Apply what you learned about CRAAP. Please use evidence based journals to acquire full points.

Words of Wisdom:

Every article must be based on

Climate Change

and the Disparity.

To be certain you address all points, copy and paste prompt numbers 1, 2 & 3, then fill in the blanks for each HEATWAVE letter. This is worth a lot of points. Type your responses in a different font from the prompts.
