Statement of the climate change issue the project is addressing, which of the 4 categories it is in and how the project is addressing that issue. Note if any collaborations are involved (link in assigned Kiron article if possible). III. The results thus far from the project. IV. The potential for replication and truly transformational change as a result of this project. Each write-up is worth 10 points based on fully addressing each portion of the 4 requested areas above. Quality writing is mandatory, be sure to proofread. Post your descriptions of your two chosen projects to the Discussion Forum as your initial post by Saturday night. Response posts should compare and contrast your chosen initiatives with the ones your colleague choose. Two are required and each is worth 5 grading points.
