SOC450 WK 1 Projecting the World Population Discussion

Discussion 1:

Projecting the World Population

No one knows what the world’s population will be in the future, but the United Nations gives three projections: high, medium, and low. Explain how each of these projections would affect the global community and provide specific examples. Bear in mind that we’re interested in the GLOBAL, not LOCAL dimensions of this problem

Discussion 2:

Slowing Down Global Warming

Reputable scientific studies continue to show that the earth is warming at an unsustainable rate because of a rise in the release of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), and methane (CH4) gases. How would the continued increase of these gases affect day-to-day living across the globe?

Discussion 3:

The Cost of Natural Resources

The economies and populations of the developing world are affected significantly when oil prices rise. Why do the economies of countries in places such as the Global South react to oil prices so severely compared to developed countries like the United States?
