Analysis on the Threats Defense Argument Due in Week 10 and worth 100 points The information you provided in your PowerPoint presentation on Threats to the Global Environment has led to productive debates at the United Nations General Assembly! Hence, they are now asking you to create an additional analysis report to respond to the issues raised in these debates. Your fourth project as a consultant for the United Nations is to develop a report that addresses the issues raised by some of the member states of the United Nations. Step I. Consider the Issues In Assignment 3a, you were asked to create a PowerPoint identifying the four most critical threats out of eight threats provided in the table below. Energy sources Civil war Globalization Poor health of entire populations Lack of educational opportunities Cultural taboos Inappropriate uses of technology Climate change There are four remaining threats that you did not discuss in your PowerPoint. This assignment will focus on two of those four. Here are the specific tasks you will complete: Review the remaining four threats that you did not use in Assignment 3a. Pick two of the four to focus on in Assignment 3b. Identify the reasons why you think these two threats are less critical than the four threats you chose for your PowerPoint presentation. Step II. Prepare Your Report The UN has given you the following guidelines. Introduction Briefly introduce the topic of the analysis (about 100-150 words). State the topic and intent of the paper.
