Persuasive Letter to a Public or Business Official
Option #2: Persuasive Letter to a Public or Business Official Directions: Using the concepts and ideas learned in the Tutorials 1-9 of Lau and Chan (2017) (Links to an external site.) , write a letter (your letter’s body should be an APA-formatted essay) to a public or business official who rejects the scientific consensus on an important issue. In this letter/essay, address the following questions: How would you define scientific theories and how they operate? Why do scientists employ the idea of falsifiability? How would you try to convince this person to examine the issue using the scientific method in order to come to clear and careful assessments? Why would you argue for engaging scientific, peer-reviewed sources on the issue?
