write a short paper with a minimum of 1000 words about a topic as it relates to climate change and natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, wild fires, etc…. Please make sure that you have proper citations to support the statements in your paper. You must use at least ten sources in your document. Your sources must come from news articles published within the last five years (2015 to present) that support your topic. For a list of possible sources see the left-hand column of the Chronicle of Education’s Arts and Letters Daily: www.aldaily.com (can be magazine, newspaper, or reputable website— no “here’s what I think” editorials). You will be graded on how well you: 1) Sufficiently put together a cohesive paper with a clear topic that stems from those listed above, 2) Cite at least five recent news articles, and 3) Use collegiate writing. Citations All references must be cited! To cite a statement in your text please include the acronym for the source (ex. National Public Radio would be abbreviated to NPR) and the date of the published article. Here is an example on how to cite in text: In 2018, Washington D.C. recorded the wettest year ever since record keeping began in the 1880s (NPR, 12/15/2018). You must also include a references section at the end of your paper that includes the full name of the source, the date of the article, and the URL link to the article. Here is an example on how to write the citation in the reference section: National Public Radio, 12/15/2018, https://www.npr.org/2018/12/15/677063597/2018-is-now-the-wettest-year-onrecord-for-washington-and-other-cities
