Climate Change

Write a paper that synthesizes information from the course. Do that by including the following:

  1. A description of a current social problem or concern (e.g., climate change, prejudice/discrimination, women’s rights, terrorism, education, homelessness, etc.).
  2. A behavioral analysis of the problem. Ask yourself, how would Skinner (or Watson, or Bandura, or Deci & Ryan, or another theorist) view the creation and persistence of this problem?
  3. A behavioral solution to the problem. How can behavioral theories be applied to solve this problem? Determine a plan of action, even if it is hypothetical.
  4. Describe the limitations of the behavioral interpretation of the problem, as well as any limitations to the behavioral solution. How might you resolve those limitations?

    1. How would a behaviorist analyze this problem?
    2. Skinner might argue that humanity was positively reinforced for bad decisions (burning fossil fuels provides electricity for our homes and gas for our cars, which we like, so we increase our behavior of consumption).
