This memo asks you to take three steps: read critically; research effectively; and, write efficiently. Please
review the Wedge Stabilization Strategy article (Pacala & Socolow) and compose a 650-750
word memo that outlines:
● the nature of the environmental problem of climate change and the human role in the development
of that problem; and,
● the prospects for solving the problem (or at least mitigating it) over the course of the next thirty years
using illustrative examples.
