How do countries from different regions of the world contribute to and feel the effects of climate change? In what ways are leaders and communities politically and socially responding to it?

Started Oct. 24, 2021

Abstract or project description

Climate change affects countries worldwide, with people experiencing extreme weather events and loss of material possessions, increased exposure to certain pollutants, and adverse health impacts. The website will examine the effects of four areas relating to climate change: air pollution, water pollution, government action, and the personal carbon footprints of citizens. Each blog post will cover these topics for a new country, with international sources such as websites and government organizations serving as references. The climate impacts of nine countries from various locations and socioeconomic statuses will be examined to provide representative examples from around the world. Additionally, these countries will be of varying population sizes and densities to allow readers to learn about the range of contributions to and impacts of climate change on different countries and the actions of governments to prevent and mitigate future effects and contributions. The country posts will be consolidated into a google site that will be published for the public so that readers can learn about worldwide climate impacts. Readers will become more knowledgeable about other parts of the world and their climate situations and political climate change stances. The information will be provided in a concise and easily accessible format, which is currently not common on the internet. The target audience for this blog will be citizens from everywhere in the world who are interested in climate change and have some background knowledge about climate change. For readers to learn more about the country, references will be linked for each post, with some resources highlighted throughout the post for further reading.
