In this activity, students investigate the shifting of three penguin communities in response to climate change.

This introductory video describes the basic principles of residential geothermal heat pumps.

This video segment, adapted from Need to Know, discusses how the process of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is used to extract natural gas and how the process may be polluting water resources with hazardous chemicals, leading to health concerns.

This video, from ClimateCentral, features a team of scientists from the Northern Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling Project (NEEM), who study atmospheric air bubbles trapped in an ice core from a period in Greenland's ice sheet which began about 130,000 years ago and lasted about 10,000 years; a period known as the Eemian. The air bubbles from the ancient atmosphere - all aligned on the same time scale - reveal what happened with climate change over that period of time.

This video explores what scientists know about how changes in global climate and increasing temperatures affect different extreme weather events.

In this video, a PhD Student from the University of Maine explains how ice cores are used to study global climate change.

In this short but effective demonstration/experiment, students investigate how thermal expansion of water might affect sea level.

This interactive map shows the impact of a changing climate on maple syrup sap production. Students can explore the changes in production under two different emissions scenarios.

This straightforward calculator provides conversions from one unit of energy to the equivalent amount of CO2 emission expected from using that amount.

This video segment explores whether, in principle, renewable energy resources could meet today's global energy needs of about 15.7 terawatts.
