Testing Claims: The Future

  1. 1. BIG HISTORY PROJECT / UNIT 10 TESTING CLAIMS 1 10 TESTING CLAIMS The Future We often wonder what the future holds. What will happen next, to us, to the biosphere, to our planet? It may be difficult to say anything is true or false when talking about the future, but the correct answer for the statements below will not always be “need more info.” Some of the claims below are likely probabilities that can be consid-‐ ered true, others are likely impossibilities and therefore false, and others truly do “need more info.” Use this “ballot card” to vote on the truth of each statement and to make notes as to why you believe something is true, false, or needs more information to fairly decide. Human population will surpass 8 billion. TRUE FALSE NEED MORE INFO WHY DO YOU THINK THAT? (Which claim testers did you use: authority, evidence, intuition, logic?) Our Sun will become a red giant and envelope the inner rocky planets within 1 million years. TRUE FALSE NEED MORE INFO WHY DO YOU THINK THAT? (Which claim testers did you use: authority, evidence, intuition, logic?) Humans will run out of food. TRUE FALSE NEED MORE INFO WHY DO YOU THINK THAT? (Which claim testers did you use: authority, evidence, intuition, logic?) The continents will look different in 500 million years. TRUE FALSE NEED MORE INFO WHY DO YOU THINK THAT? (Which claim testers did you use: authority, evidence, intuition, logic?) Humans will learn collectively with other species, perhaps some from another planet. TRUE FALSE NEED MORE INFO WHY DO YOU THINK THAT? (Which claim testers did you use: authority, evidence, intuition, logic?)
