This interactive world map shows the impact of a global temperature rise of 4 degrees Celsius on a variety of factors including agriculture, marine life, fires, weather patterns, and health. Hot Spots can be clicked on to get more specific information about the problems in different regions.
This visualization is a chart that displays future climate change in terms of temperature increases and the impacts and Food, Water, Ecosystems, Extreme Weather Events, and Risk of Abrupt and Irreversible Changes that are predicted with the increasing temperature benchmarks.
This video features residents of Shishmaref, Alaska, plus environmental journalist Elizabeth Kolbert and scientist John Holdren, exploring the human impacts of global climate change. The roles of teachers, scientists, policymakers, and concerned citizens in mitigating the changes are highlighted.
This slide show lays out a photo story with short descriptions of how city buildings all over the world are taking climate change and rising sea level seriously, to design structures that can react to unforeseen changes. As sea levels continue to rise, architects are designing ways to live with the rising water.
Teaching Climate –This narrated slideshow describes the impact of sea level rise on Tuvalu, an island nation in the South Pacific. As the frequency and intensity of floods and cyclones increases, the island is shrinking and saltwater intrusion is affecting local food production on the plantations. Many residents are moving off the island to New Zealand, where they face major cultural changes.
In this video the Pentagon's focus on climate change is described as a significant factor as the military examines potential risks, strategic responses, and impacts of climate change on future military and humanitarian missions. In 2010, for the first time, the Pentagon focused on climate change as a significant factor in its Quadrennial Defense Review of potential risks and strategic responses. Rear Admiral David Titley, Oceanographer of the Navy, explains why the US military sees clear evidence of climate change, and how those changes will affect future military and humanitarian missions.
Teaching Climate - This PBS video focuses on sea level rise in Norfolk, Virginia, and how the residents are managing the logistical, financial and political implications. This video has been reviewed by the Climate Literacy and Education Network (CLEAN).
C-Learn is a simplified version of the C-ROADS simulator. Its primary purpose is to help users understand the long-term climate effects (CO2 concentrations, global temperature, sea level rise) of various customized actions to reduce fossil fuel CO2 emissions, reduce deforestation, and grow more trees. Students can ask multiple, customized what-if questions and understand why the system reacts as it does.
