TED Talk Response #1 – Tshering Tobgay on the melting of glaciers in Asia’s Hindu Kush Himalaya
In this TED Talk from 2019 (Links to an external site.), Tshering Tobgay the former Prime Minister of the small Asian country of Bhutan talked about the melting of glaciers in Asia’s Hindu Kush Himalaya mountains (where Bhutan is located).
What mainly drew his attention to the melting of glaciers in the Hindu Kush Himalaya mountains?
Why should Bhutan worry about such melting?
What evidence does he present on the predicted/projected scale and timing of such melting?
What does he suggest is the cause of such melting?
Which other countries could be affected by the melting (and how exactly)?
What solution does he suggest?
Are there things about his talk that you think he fails to explain adequately?
use the bulleted questions above as headings for your answers (this will not count in the overall word total)
please have your headings in bold and the following text (i.e. your answer) in normal (non-bold) text
do not use more than 100 words per answer (so 700 words in total)
this assignment counts for 50 points
spellcheck your work before uploading it and, ideally, get someone to read it or listen to you explain it
feel free to include photos, diagrams, and screenshots to illustrate your points – any words in these are exempt from the word count.
All images must be labeled although, again, these are exempt from the word count.
upload your answer as a word document with a cover page stating your name, the course name, title of the work, my name
there is a transcript (write-up) of the talk here (Links to an external site.)
you do not have to watch it but Tobgay also did a terrific TED Talk in 2016 (Links to an external site.) that outlines how Bhutan is the World’s only ‘carbon negative’ country.
the ‘model answer’ for the previous course TED Talk on glaciers is in the modules section. It is much longer than the work expected of you but is worth looking at to get a sense of what a good answer looks like. It lacks a cover page but you do need to do a cover page.
