This week, you are going to work on the Literature Review of your research paper. You will annotate 2/3 articles and you have to give in-text citations as a reference to that source. You will be writing a literature review of 5/6 sources in total in literature review part. The half portion should be submitted this week and half in the following week.
You will need to organize the literature review with the following elements:
- An effective introduction of Literature review by giving information about the number of sources that researcher is going to consider for his/her paper. Talk about it briefly and write important points from each source with a meaningful sub-heading
- Make sure that you have submitted your literature review about 2/3 sources
- Write in THIRD PERSON OBJECTIVE, no first or second person, which means to “I”, “we”, ‘you”, “us”, etc. within your essay.
- Every paragraph should organized with clear topic sentence and closing sentence
- Use Transitions in the beginning of paragraphs and within paragraphs to show cohesion
- Specific supporting evidence from your selected sources
- 2/3 pages (not including the Works Cited page)
- You can give sub-headings for each article’s annotation
- Paragraphs organized logically which should make sense to the reader
- Effective use of transitional words and phrases to connect paragraphs and sentences
- An effective topic sentence and concluding sentence to each paragraph
- Consistently clear, complete sentences with virtually no sentence-level errors that distract the reader or distort the essay’s meaning. A reader can easily understand the writer’s ideas.
- A unique title that predicts the topic and main point of your text
- MLA format for doc., quotations, and Works Cited page (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, 1 inch margins)

Norman 6 The Effectiveness of Government Policies in Reducing Carbon Emissions and Mitigating the Impacts of Climate Change Submitted by: Student ID: Course: ENG-101 Date: Submitted to: Introduction Climate change is an issue of utmost importance, and its impacts are felt worldwide. With the rise in temperatures, more frequent extreme weather events, and the loss of critical ecosystems, the need to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change has become increasingly urgent. Government policies play a crucial role in mitigating the effects of climate change and decreasing carbon emissions. In recent years, many governments worldwide have implemented policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a more sustainable future. The effectiveness of these policies in achieving their goals is a topic of significant importance. The success or failure of government policies in reducing emissions and mitigating climate change impacts will profoundly impact the future of our planet and its inhabitants. Mode of Research This study will employ a qualitative approach involving a critical analysis of pre-existing data and studies related to the effectiveness of government policies in mitigating the effects of climate change and lessening carbon emissions. The research will focus on several key areas, including carbon pricing, renewable energy incentives, and emissions standards, among others. The study will seek to identify the strengths and weaknesses of these policies and evaluate their success in achieving their intended outcomes. Qualitative (Critical Analysis of pre-existing data and studies) Many studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of government policies in mitigating the effects of climate change and reducing carbon emissions. These studies have focused on various policies, including carbon pricing, renewable energy incentives, and emissions standards, among others. For instance, a study by the World Bank found that carbon pricing policies like emissions trading schemes and carbon taxes have been effective in reducing carbon emissions in some cases (Worldbank). However, the study also found that the success of these strategies depends on a variety of factors, including the carbon price level, the policy coverage, and the use of revenue generated from carbon pricing. Related Researches Numerous studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of government policies in mitigating the impacts of climate change and reducing carbon emissions. For example, a study by Machaqueiro found that renewable energy incentives have been successful in reducing carbon emissions in some cases. The study also found that the success of these policies depends on a variety of factors, including the level of the incentive, the type of renewable energy technology, and the availability of resources. Thesis statement This paper argues that while government policies have been effective in reducing carbon emissions in some cases, more needs to be done to address the impacts of climate change. The study concludes that a comprehensive approach is needed, including both mitigation and adaptation strategies, to achieve the goal of a more sustainable future. Research Questions In what ways have government policies been effective in reducing carbon emissions? Who has been most impacted by climate change, and how have government policies addressed their concerns? Which government policies have been most successful in reducing emissions, and why? How have international agreements and collaborations influenced government policies on climate change? In what ways can government policies be improved to better address the impacts of climate change?
