You have a scenario you must respond to as a writer: You are working for a general interest magazine that covers topics from the environment to popular culture. Your editor has asked you to write a short summary for the science and environment section on climate change. Your editor explains that there is a lot of confusion and conflicting information on the topic, and she wants the readers of your magazine to have the key information summarized and clarified.
Your first step is to find an article that summarizes the current situation on climate change. You can find an article at the following location:
Page, M. L. (2014, March 9).
How much hotter is the planet going to get? (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. In NewScientist Environment. Retrieved from http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn25187-how-much-hotter-is-the-planet-going-to-get.html?full=true#.Ux3KJo2MEkV
Your task now is to create a short summary of about 250 words that presents the key ideas from this article for your readers who might be confused about climate change and wondering what is really going on. Remember, your summary must be objective. Your editor has made it clear that you are to leave your opinion out of this piece.
