Scientist: There is a lot of concern that human behavior may be responsible for large-scale climate change. But this should be seen as more of an opportunity than a problem. If human behavior is responsible for climate change, then we can control future climate change to make it less extreme than previous climate shifts.

The scientist's argument requires assuming which one of the following?

(A) The same degree of climate change produces less damage if it is caused by human behavior than if it has a purely natural cause.
(B) Human beings can control the aspects of their behavior that have an impact on climate change.
(C) At least some previous large-scale climate changes have been caused by human behavior.
(D) Large-scale climate change poses a greater danger to human beings than to other species.
(E) It is easier to identify the human behaviors that cause climate change than it is to change those behaviors.

Question Type: Assumption

Summary: Large scale climate change caused by human behavior should be perceived as an opportunity.

(A) The same degree of climate change produces less damage if it is caused by human behavior than if it has a purely natural cause. - Out of context. Comparison between human behavior and natural cause is irrelevant to the argument

(B) Human beings can control the aspects of their behavior that have an impact on climate change. - Correct.

(C) At least some previous large-scale climate changes have been caused by human behavior. - We are not concerned about the previous large scale climate changes caused by human behavior.

(D) Large-scale climate change poses a greater danger to human beings than to other species. - Irrelevant.

(E) It is easier to identify the human behaviors that cause climate change than it is to change those behaviors. - Out of context. How easy it is to identify and change the human behavior is out of context.
