Hi please help me with this assignment at least 250 words and APA format. Need write an article two answer these questions.


At least 250 word APA format

 

1.

 

2. In recent years we have become increasingly concerned about global

 

climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore it has

 

become increasingly important to think about how decisions from the

 

global to local scale impact greenhouse gas emissions. Use the

 

distances calculated from the Food Mapping portion of the exercise to

 

calculate the CO2 emissions for each meal.

 

3. Calculate the emissions for each food item/ingredient using the

 

following web resources: http://www.foodemissions.com

 

4. In the calculator you have to select your food category, commodity

 

(your food item/ingredient), distance traveled (your measured

 

distances), estimated quantity of each item (per meal) and finally

 

estimated wastage. Summarize your results (product emissions,

 

transport emissions, and waste emissions), per meal, in a table and

 

keep these data as you will need them to answer the questions in Part

 

C.

 

5. Now lets look at your water footprint. Did you know that about 2,500

 

gallons of water are required to make one cup of coffee? The amount

 

of water used from start to finish to produce food products is difficult to

 

determine and is often less well known than the carbon footprint.

 

6. Using the website: http://waterfootprint.org/en/resources/interactivetools/personal-water-footprint-calculator/ you can calculate your water

 

footprint per year. Complete the basic calculator first, and then at the

 

bottom of that page click on the 'extended calculator' and use this to

 

get a more detailed estimate. Be as accurate as possible, but realize

 

that you are estimating your usage. Summarize your result in a

 

table (Total water footprint, components of total water footprint, and

 

contribution of individual food category towards total water

 

footprint) and keep these data, as you will need them in Part C.

10.

 

In a well-written and concise manner (Max 400 words for everything

 

you enter into the gradient text box) answer the questions below. Clearly

 

differentiate between opinion and facts. Reference websites, articles, or

 

the textbook if you are using statistics or results from other studies.

 

Question 1: Briefly summarize your CO2 and water footprints (based on

 

what you calculated in Part B). Were the results in Part B what you

 

expected? Elaborate. Which food items/ingredients traveled the furthest

 

and why might that be the case? Question 2: Give one specific example of how you could reduce your food

 

carbon footprint and what specific challenges you might face trying to do

 

so? Give one specific example of how you could reduce your water

 

footprint and what specific challenges you might face trying to do so? Note ? when you get to the calibration and peer review part of Gradient, you will be asked to assess whether an answer is ?competent" (it meets all of the expected requirements of the assignment), "not yet competent" (it is poorly done or is missing some of the things listed in the requirements), or "advanced" (it meets all of the expected requirements of the assignment at a high level and explains things with a high level of insight and knowledge). You will also be asked to give each answer a score out of 10 (where 10 is the best). Please use the following numbers: Advanced = 10 or 9. Competent = 8 or 7. Not yet Competent = 6 or 5. Do not use lower numbers than this, and do not give numbers that don't match how you evaluated the work (or you will get an automatic Not yet Competent for the assignment!).

 

When you are reviewing someone else's work, they will really appreciate it if you give them helpful feedback. So you need to write something in the explanation box when you give someone less than full credit. Tell the person what was missing or what needed to be done better, so that they can make their work better next time!
