Teaching Tips

Educators could ask students to discuss the differing perspectives of the anchor and weather forecaster, and the scientific evidence for the long-term global view.

Video could be used to add a bit of levity at some point near the end of a climate change unit. It does summarize some good, and current, information.

Could be used as a model from which students could be assigned to create their own video about climate change.
