This Critical Thinking assignment is designed to provide you experience analyzing articles for inductive and deductive reasoning. The topic is on climate change and global warming.
Write an essay that demonstrates your critical analysis of any article within the last two years from your college Global library about Global Warming and Climate Change. The essay should demonstrate your ability to analyze the information presented in the article.
You will conclude your essay with an overall critique of the writing, logic, credibility and any other observations of the editorial. Please state your position on climate change, and whether the document persuaded you in any way.
In addition, the essay must include a discussion of your evaluation of the editorial for the following information:
