Using Data

ACTSCI-7CMZJG

Assume that in the year 2914, the average global climate has risen 9.6 degrees Fahrenheit compared to that of today’s global climate.

This new data would most likely support

Global Warming

A

Scientist 1’s argument because this would show that the Earth’s climate continued to increase.

B

Scientist 2’s argument because the change in temperature was gradual enough to have been caused by natural phenomenon.

C

Both Scientist 1 and 2 could use this data to strengthen their arguments, because they are both arguing that the global climate will change.

D

Neither Scientist 1 nor 2’s argument is strengthened by this data without knowledge of other variables that contributed to the change in climate.
