TC 302: Water, Ethics, Law and Politics / Cohen

Find arguments, ideas, debates...

Databases I recommend for this class

Where do experts argue about topics? That depends on who the experts are and what audience they are addressing. 

Before you choose a database to search, ask whose voice do you want to hear...a medical doctor? An environmental scientist? A farmer? Choose your database accordingly.

It is worthwhile to search the press to see the debates and discussions that journalists are writing about. One job of a journalist is to keep abreast of the latest in scientific and academic study then interpret that literature for a general audience.

Sometimes numbers are the best evidence

Please always ask: who collected these stats and are they reputable and unbiased?

This guide has info on finding stats, public opinion and demographics.
