Topic: Environmental Risk Perception
Resource: Ch. 2 of Environmental Psychology, University Library, and peer-reviewed journals
“opposing viewpoints” is resource in the university library. Go to the library tab> Click on “University Library” > Under “Library Resources” click on “Specialized Resources”> Scroll down and click on “Opposing Viewpoints in Context”
Within the Opposing Viewpoints in Context site, there are specialized topics, one of which is energy and environmentalism. There is a plethora of articles on this site that I believe would be very useful for week 2’s environmental risk assignment
Select an environmental risk, such as climate change, and research two articles from peer-reviewed journals that have different perceptions of the level of risk (i.e., low, high).
Prepare a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper based on your chosen articles. Provide a summary of each article. Compare and contrast the risk perceptions presented in each article. Identify any environmental stressors that are related to the environmental risk. Conclude with a discussion of your own risk perception of the issue. Explain your stance and be sure to cite appropriate sources. This should not be strictly based on your opinion.
