We are required to write a 2,000-word essay on ONE of the following
And my requirement is to write down quick notes about how you analyze the passage like this.
Because I have to present the whole passage in class and explain the points.
1. Mainstream media increasingly document a link between climate change
and species loss. As a May 19 article in The New York Times puts it, â€œWhen
combined with the other ways humans are damaging the environment,
climate change is now pushing a growing number of species, such as the
Bengal tiger, closer to extinction.â€ What role, if any, should de-extinction play
in addressing this overall trend?
2. In his discussion of the ethics of reviving long-extinct species, Sandler
employs the notion of â€œluxury conservation.â€ Outline what this concept
means and whether or not it is helpful in thinking about how to prioritize our
responses to climate change. In your discussion contrast two forms of
conservation that have nothing to do with de-extinction, showing why one is
likely to count as a form of luxury conservation while the other is not.
3. Critically assess the notion of â€œenvironmentalism of the rich.â€ To what
degree, if at all, is it helpful in thinking about how to respond to climate
4. Brown suggests that profit-seeking firms such as Beyond Meat can play a
positive role in addressing climate change. How would Dauvergne respond
to this claim? Which view of the role of business is ultimately more plausible,
Brownâ€™s or Dauvergneâ€™s?
5. Identify the diet that Boucher recommends and compare it to the diet endorsed in Cowspiracy. Which diet is ethically superior and why?

substantive points â€¢
Your essay should show that you understand the ideas we’ve been looking at and can critically analyze them Aim to spend one third or slightly more of your essay summarizing the key points of the relevant reading(s)
In the summary portion, don’t try to capture every point from the reading, just the most relevant ideas
In the critical portion give reasons for the thesis you are putting forward
To do well you need to demonstrate intellectual originality, by introducing some new thought beyond the readings and lectures
How to show originality
â€¢ You can critically analyze a theory we have examined by, for example, pointing out a contradiction or flaw
â€¢ Alternatively, if you agree with a theory, you can show originality by addressing a possible objection, or applying it to an issue we haven’t looked at
â€¢ Regurgitating lecture points is a mistake!
â€¢ Throw away the lecture slides and focus 100% on the readings directly
mechanical points Take note of instructions on Canvas Referencing How? style’ What? When
â€¢ No penalty for going 10% over or under word limit. Notes and bibliography do NOT count toward word limit
. â€¢ Long block quotes are discouraged. Best to put key points in your own word
. â€¢ For referencing, Chicago, MLA or Harvard styles are all acceptable
â€¢ But note that you need to include a main text word count, which is easier to determine if your referencing system uses footnotes rather than in-text citations Chicago notes and bibliography format is probably the easiest :
