Dear Student,
Hello. I am going to make a few assumptions in the problem you presented - that your professor is asking you to present a current issue that is politically and socially relevant and that you are to write about it in a manner that shows your knowledge on the subject. There are many issues we can look into but from the examples you posed, it seems that you are interested or are being asked to present environmental issues. Not to worry. I think that you are aware of either climate change or the 'green' movement and the solution below tackles one of this. Also, if you need to learn more on the topic, use the references listed with the solution to prepare yourself should you be asked about the topic in class. I hope it helps. Thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below follows the APA format. If you have questions regarding this solution, please feel free to indicate it in the feedback/comment section. Good luck!
