I need the 150+ ASAP first then you start working on the rough draft/final paper please read the paper instructions below thanks:
1. The topic will be on GLOBAL WARMING/CLIMATE CHANGE and write a short proposal, containing:
a) the issue you like to write on; GLOBAL WARMING/CLIMATE CHANGE
b) a short argument or explanation expressing your initial thoughts about the issue and You’re required to use four or more sources for your paper.
This should be about 150+ words.
2. Then you will create a rough draft/final paper of your paper see instructions below:
The final assignment in this course is a 4 -5 page + (approximately 1200 –1500 word) Argumentative Essay on an issue about GLOBAL WARMING/CLIMATE CHANGE
Your paper should have a good title – one that presents your point of view on the
issue in an interesting way. Choose this carefully, after you’ve written the paper.
II. An introduction.
This should include a brief statement of what you’re going to argue about, and establish some context for the issue.
•Why is the issue important? Why are you writing about it?
•What (in brief) will be your argument?
•(optional) What is one of the main counterarguments you will have to address?
You can also include a “hook” — something that grabs the reader’s attention and motivates him (me!) to continue to read. It should not include: a “master key” type phrase, “Since the dawn of time, mankind has been dealing with …” “In today’s world, we…”
III. Presentation of arguments.
This should include:
•Supporting arguments (A);
•Rebuttals (R ) of the counterarguments — these are counter-counterarguments.
•N.B. The reading posted for this week will give you some helpful tips on how to create good counterarguments.
Arguments should be free of fallacies. Any important terms should be defined.
Your paper should include minimally one each of these (A, CA, R) and probably will have more than one of each of these – see below for two possible formats.
Additionally, you should include one or more 3 statement arguments (claim, ground, warrant) and one or more analogical arguments.
This should include a brief recap of your argument and any implications of your argument, as well as additional questions that need to be addressed on this issue.
The paper should include labels for the Arguments (A) Counterarguments (CA) and Rebuttals (R) – these will help you to keep in mind where you are in the argument. (It’s common for arguers to become sidetracked in a counterargument and lose their way in their initial argument.)
WHAT I LOOK FOR WHEN GRADING:

WHAT SOURCES SHOULD I USE?
•Your paper should draw on four or more sources– all internet sources must be accessed through the library database (unless cleared through me —
TRY TO USE THIS please exceptions are any journals or newspapers available outside of the databases) and must be noted as such in a Bibliography or Works Cited page.
A good place to start your research is with CQ Researcher, and/or with Academic Search Complete Database. There will be an Announcement on this.
• WIKIPEDIA IS NOT A VALID SOURCE!
•You should include a bibliography.
•Quotations and uses of sources must be cited either through footnote, endnote or, parenthetically, in the body of the paper (e.g., (Smith, pg. 104).
•All sources should be listed in a standard format on a Works Cited page or in a
Bibliography using a standard bibliographic format. For a “how to” in the MLA style
see: http://www.aresearchguide.com/12biblio.html (Links to an external site.)
•The paper should be double spaced in 12 point font with normal one inch margins.
•Please include a word count.
•It should be posted to me as a Word or RTF file.
•It should be spell and grammar-checked and be as free of such errors as possible. More than I error per page may result in a lower grade.
