Task

Produce a report (900 words maximum) that discusses to what extent the causes of global climate change are natural.

It should be text based but supported with diagrams, images and data visualizations.

Your report should include:

  • What is 'global climate change'?
  • Discussion of the predicted levels/amounts of global climate change.
  • What are the causes of global climate change?
  • Discussion of whether all the causes of global climate change are human-induced or not.

Don't just include images to make it look pretty - all images should be used and integrated into the reports discussion.
