My EPQ Presentation

Jack Milburn
To what extent can global warming be blamed on human causes?
My Aims:

Establish the main causes of climate change
Find experts opinions on climate change
Find reputable facts and figures
Study both sides of the argument for human blame
Come to a conclusion regarding human blame
Look at possible solutions
Exploring Possible Topics
Prepare a presentation exploring the possible topics involved in geography.
Create a shortlist of around 3 topics
Decide final topic - Must be something that can be investigated in depth
Research
Write Up Report
Create Structure
First draft + Bibliography
Second draft

Presentation
Primary
Primary
Secondary
Questionnaire
Asked a variety of age groups
Created a questionnaire
Used results to create graphs
First hand evidence
I used a gantt chart to plan my time on large scale to have a rough idea of when things will need to be completed by.


Secondary Research
Wide range of sources:
Newspaper articles
Web articles
Reports
Blogs
Organizations websites (e.g. WWF)

Sources Table:
Dates
Source
Reliability
Pros
Cons
Primary Research
Questionnaire:
Range of ages - Different views
First hand knowledge
Find trends in views
Opinion based
Not actual source but provides useful knowledge on general opinions
Questionnaire:
Sources Table:
46/50 responded
92% return rate

15 or under - 10 (22%)
16-25 - 33 (72%)
26-45 - 2 (4%)
45+ - 1 (2%). 12 66

Respondents from:
Europe - 25 - 54%
Asia - 1 - 2%
Africa (Central) - 1 - 2%
Canada - 2 - 4%
USA - 17 - 36%
Total - 98% (excluding decimals in %)

Further Research:
To further develop my work in the future I could begin to look into:
Extreme Weather
Glaciation and ice melt
Events causing climate change (e.g. asteroids, El Nino/La Nina, Solar Flares)
Possible solutions to climate change.
Improvements:
To improve if I were to do the project again I would:
Try to go more in depth with my research through interviews with important figures.
Have better questions for my primary research
A04 - Review
Reviewing my project
Strengths
I gathered a lot of research and managed to meet deadlines and not have to catch up on work. I used my time well and made sure I was working consistently througout.
Weaknesses
I found that when it came to writing the report, I often found myself struggling to put my thoughts down and feel I could have created a structured plan for my essay.
Skills Gained
Effective time management
Extended essay writing
Research based skills
Analystical skills
In Conclusion
Overall I feel this was a successful project and I learned a great deal, not only from my research but also from the skills needed throughout the extended project.
My Report
Any Questions?
38 out of the 46 respondents said they thought humans were to blame for global warming - that's around 82%!
