Hey everyone, For this cycle, I will be covering the serious effects that climate change opposes to mountainous environments. This issue has become more important as we've been noticing it worse as years go by and more specifically causing not only glaciers, plants and the biodiversity in mountain regions to be severely affected but also the people who live in mountain areas. For my first round of research, I will be going over why mountains are so susceptible to climate change and why they...Read More...

For this cycle, I'll be discussing the effects that climate change has on mountainous environment going into the past, present, and future. As in my past cycles involved with climate change I've explained some causes to climate change and now I'll be explaining and showing their effects. I'm planning on starting the cycle with a little recap on the basics of climate change, looking at water vapour and clouds. Then what we've seen in the past, looking at statistics of melting glaciers,...Read More...

Hey everyone, for this round of research, I'm going to be focusing more on myths of climate change, as I feel I've failed to mention them in my past rounds of research. Anyways some of them are quite self-explanatory and others seem not too far from the truth. All in all, I hope you enjoy this research round, as I find some of them to be quite odd. 1. “ We have more people. You know, humans have warm bodies. So is heat coming off? Things are changing, but I think we are, as a society, doing...Read More...

Hey everyone, So short recap on my past two research rounds of this cycle, I explained the natural causes to climate change like volcanic eruptions and how climate change doesn't necessarily mean warming but cooling as well. Then in my second round of research, I discussed greenhouse gasses as well as the greenhouse gas effect. Side Note: I'm not doing all the causes for climate change since other students have already covered them if you're interested, go check out the amazing work of...Read More...

Hey everyone, In my previous research round, I discussed the natural causes of climate change explaining how volcano eruptions, the Milankovitch theory, solar radiation, movement of tectonic plates and El Nino contributes to climate change. As well how climate change doesn't necessarily mean warming but cooling as well. In this round of research, I am looking what greenhouse gasses contribute to climate change as well as the green house gas effect. Greenhouse gasses are a man-made...Read More...

So, in my past cycle, I discussed both sides of the argument "Is climate change real" and also added some major companies that produce the highest amounts of fossil fuels. Now moving on, in this round of research I'll be discussing natural causes of climate change since climate change is not fully occurring just from human activity, there is a natural factor as well. Firstly, here's a definition of climate change if you aren't too sure what it is: a long-term change in the earth's climate,...Read More...
Hey guys, Continuing with the topic of climate change, I will be going further into depth by covering the causes and common myths regarding climate change. I'm planning to cover the major causes/contributes to climate change and along the way I'll I'm to bring up myths associated with climate change and explain where they came from. Rounds of research possibilities... meat industries oil companies greenhouse gas effect albedo effect natural causes human causes global warming Potential...Read More...

Hey everyone, I'm planning for this to be my final post regarding my inquiry question, but I'll still be continuing with the topic of climate change. In my past post, I explained why some people believe in climate change, why others don't and some industries and countries that produce the most CO2 emissions. For this post, I will explain the footprint that climate change has left from genes to biomes to people. Let's get started! So far our global temperature has only gone up by an estimated...Read More...

Hey everybody, So in my previous round of research, I explained why climate change is real. For this round of research, I'm going to be discussing an article the was left in the comment section. So this is about the largest producers of industrial carbon emissions. 'Nearly two-thirds of all industrial carbon dioxide and methane released into the atmosphere since 1854 can be traced to fossil fuel and cement production by just 90 entities' -union of concerned scientists Scientists have linked...Read More...

Hey everyone, Throughout out this cycle of research I have been covering the question is climate change real? Now I was never planning on giving a definate answer since I do understand that there is both strong sides to this question, but just wanting to show both of them. In my first round, I gave a bit of an introduction to the two sides, then covered why some people don't believe in climate change. Now I will be explaining why people do believe in climate change. As mentioned in the past...Read More...

Hi everyone, So in my previous round of research I introduced my topic and a bit of both sides of it (real and not real). In this round I am going in depth on why some different reasons why some people do not believe in climate change. Okay so starting off with the scientists, as I mentioned before 97% of scientists do believe in climate change therefore a very small 3% are left as unbelievers (1)(2). Now one part of this three percentile that can be taken into consideration, is that some...Read More...

Hey guys, so for my first research round I am going to be covering the general controversy between people weather climate change is real or not. And just what climate change really is..... Note: discussing man-made climate change (global warming) Over the years, there has been a huge controversy whether climate change is real or not? On both sides there are scientist explaining why it is or isn't real. As well as who to blame for climate change weather it's mankind or earth just going...Read More...

Hello everybody, So for this cycle I will be researching the topic "Is climate change real?". This is one section on the general topic I will try to cover for climate change.I wanted to begin with addressing this question because I do understand that some may not believe it's real. And want to give an incite on what it is before I begin going into climate change it's self. This is quiet a large controversy between people and scientist. Now for this research I will be trying not to come off...Read More...

Hi everyone, I reached a bit of a dilemma this week.... Originally, I planned on doing a second cycle of my inquiry question on "Why do extreme athletes take big risks?" covering the physiological side behind it. But I realized that I can only make one round out of it without constantly repeating myself. So here is my last round of research for this topic, I will be revealing my plan for my next cycle soon. In my past three rounds on research regarding my topic I explained what makes an...Read More...

Hola! In my previous round of research I talked about a variety of different extreme athletes from the "parts of extreme sports" i.e. sky, water, climb and snow. I explained what drew them to the sport as well as some severe accidents they've been in and why they still do the sport. For this round of research I will be looking into the aspect of weather and environment. Why it makes the sport what it is and how it caused many deadly accidents. "Activities categorized by media as extreme...Read More...

Hey everyone, hope you're all having a splendid week! In my first round of research I explained what an extreme sport is and what qualifies as an extreme sport. To sum it up an extreme sport is a sport that is physically hazardous. For my second round of research I will be talking about certain athletes and what attached them to their sport(s). To start off I was looking at different athletes and the variety of extreme sports there do. I will try to cover most of the "extreme sport spectrum"...Read More...

Hey everyone, For my first round of research I will be explaining the difference between an extreme sport and a normal sport. What makes sports extreme and there level of risks factors. Extreme sports are defined as " A sport that is physically hazardous (1)." These sports take physical activity to a whole new level, from mind blowing speeds, heights, depths and testing the forces of nature. Sports as so require confidence in you and your body as well as accuracy that is required for a safe...Read More...

Project Plan

Danica Rogers (Charles Best)
Why do extreme athletes take big risks? Here is what I am thinking for my project plan. I will start off by comparing the difference between an extreme sport and a normal sport like soccer. Explaining what makes a sport extreme, why is it extreme and so on. Then I'll research the athletes, why are they attached to these sports, are they ever scared, is it for the adrenaline rush, did they ever think of stopping after a near death experience, would they say that they're "addicted" to the...Read More...
