Earth’s biodiversity and ecosystems

Living in a Sustainable World

Imagine a future in which human beings have achieved environmental sustainability on a global scale. In this second part of your final assignment, you will be describing what a sustainable Earth will look like in the future, providing examples throughout to support your descriptions. You will be including all the terms that you have researched during Week 1 through 4 of this class, underlining each term as you include it. In your paper, use grammar and spell-checking programs to insure clarity. Proofread carefully prior to submitting your work. Finally, you will submit the document to Waypoint.

Your paper will consist of seven paragraphs: an introduction, a conclusion, and one paragraph relating to each week’s topic. In your paper, use this format to address the following elements with the assumption that environmental sustainability has been achieved:

  • Introduction:
    • Describe how our relationship to nature will be different from what it is at present.
    • Examine how we will cope differently with the ways that natural phenomena affect our lives.
  • Week 1:
    • Describe what Earth’s biodiversity and ecosystems will look like.
  • Week 2:
    • Examine how agricultural production will be different in the future.
  • Week 3:
    • Differentiate between how we will manage our water resources in the future compared to how we do so right now.
  • Week 4:
    • Examine how we will meet our energy needs in the future in a way that will enable us to maintain a habitable atmosphere and climate.
  • Week 5:
    • Describe how waste management will be different in the future.
  • Conclusion:
    • Summarize some of the major social, economic, political, and ecological choices and tradeoffs that will need to be overcome for this sustainable future to arrive.
