At least 5 of the above sources, namely sources 2, 4, 6, 8, and 9, are considered highly credible and reputable. All sources chosen are published within the past 5 years and 4 were published within the past year. The listed sources provide varying perspectives related to climate change and its impact on human health. Students can use these sources as a starting point to gain a better understanding of the subject and communicate their findings to others.
