A set of eight photographs compiled into a series of slides explain how urban areas are facing challenges in keeping both their infrastructure and their residents cool as global temperatures rise. Chicago is tackling that problem with a green design makeover. This report is part of PBS's Coping with Climate Change series and could challenge students to consider engineering designs to help their own cities be greener.

This video addresses the importance of efficiency in providing power to an increasingly large global population.

This video reviews the benefits and drawbacks associated with growing corn to make ethanol.
