So, what am I looking for with this paper anyhow? I would like you to pick a topic related to Environmental Science and tell me about it. This can be EITHER a descriptive paper OR an opinion piece. ANY topic related to Environmental Science is open for discussion, however you do need to tell me your topic and/or thesis before you start.
Things this paper MUST have:
This is a college paper and I am expecting college work. Therefore, I need a clear thesis statement and AT LEAST three legitimate journal sources (however use as many as you would like – please note Wikipedia is NOT a legitimate source). Aim for 5 pages as you should be able to get that much material with three sources. If you are doing an opinion piece make sure I know what your opinion is and why you think that way. I have no preference APA or MLA style, however make sure you cite correctly whichever style you prefer.
