Question

Do you believe that there are serious climate change issues including global warming that are caused by human activities? Give reasons to support your answer

Answer #1

The Yale Climate change opinion poll asked people in all 50
states whether they thought global warming is caused mostly by
human activities. In California, 55% said yes. Nevada is considered
a more Republican than Nevada and Republicans are skeptical about
climate change. So, what would you expect for the percent in Nevada
thinking global warming is caused mostly by human activities?
a) state the null and alternative hypothesis in mathematical and
everyday language
b) in a sample of 500...

What
do you think are the most serious threats to Southeast Asia posed
by global climate change? What are the most promising responses to
global climate change emerging from this region?

Gallup reported that 67% of adults in Latin America believe that
global warming is a serious threat to themselves and their family.
Let’s assume this value represents the population proportion. Now
imagine that a researcher surveys a random sample of 150 adults in
Latin America, asking about their beliefs on global warming, and 81
responded that it was a serious threat.
(a)If samples of size 150 are taken, find the mean and standard
error of the resulting sampling distribution of...

A USA Today article claims that the proportion of people who
believe global warming is a serious issue is 0.5, but given the
number of people you've talked to about this same issue, you
believe it is greater than 0.5. The hypotheses for this test are
Null Hypothesis: p ≤ 0.5, Alternative Hypothesis: p > 0.5. You
take a random sample and perform a hypothesis test, getting a
p-value of 0.3256. What is the appropriate conclusion? Conclude at
the 5%...

A USA Today article claims that the proportion of people who
believe global warming is a serious issue is 0.78, but given the
number of people you've talked to about this same issue, you
believe it is different from 0.78. The hypotheses for this test are
Null Hypothesis: p = 0.78, Alternative Hypothesis: p ≠ 0.78. If you
randomly sample 23 people and 15 of them believe that global
warming is a serious issue, what is your test statistic and...

According to a Yale program on climate change communication
survey, 71% of Americans think global warming is happening.†
(a) For a sample of 14 Americans, what is the probability that
at least 11 believe global warming is occurring? Use the binomial
distribution probability function discussed in Section 5.5 to
answer this question. (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
(b) For a sample of 140 Americans, what is the probability that
at least 90 believe global warming is occurring? Use...

A USA Today article claims that the proportion of people who
believe global warming is a serious issue is 0.59, but given the
number of people you've talked to about this same issue, you
believe it is greater than 0.59. The hypotheses for this test are
Null Hypothesis: p ≤ 0.59, Alternative Hypothesis: p > 0.59. You
take a random sample and perform a hypothesis test, getting a
p-value of 0.9623. What is the appropriate conclusion? Conclude at
the 5%...

Question 1:
A) Suppose global climate models call for 2 °C of warming in the
climate between 2020 and 2050, and that corn yields decrease 10%
for every degree of warming. The baseline yield growth rate is 1%
per year. What is the yield gain (in % terms) between 2020 and 2050
without climate change? What is the yield gain (in % terms) between
2020 and 2050 with climate change?
B) Now suppose that scientists have developed new, genetically
modified...

A USA Today article claims that the proportion of people who
believe global warming is a serious issue is 0.66, but given the
number of people you've talked to about this same issue, you
believe it is less than 0.66. The hypotheses for this test are Null
Hypothesis: p ≥ 0.66, Alternative Hypothesis: p < 0.66. If you
randomly sample 28 people and 22 of them believe that global
warming is a serious issue, what is your test statistic and...

A USA Today article claims that the proportion of people who
believe global warming is a serious issue is 0.6, but given the
number of people you've talked to about this same issue, you
believe it is different from 0.6. The hypotheses for this test are
Null Hypothesis: p = 0.6, Alternative Hypothesis: p ≠ 0.6. If you
randomly sample 29 people and 19 of them believe that global
warming is a serious issue, what is your test statistic and...
