Animals and Climate Change


Climate Change vs Global Warming

Can we summarize the differences between the concepts of Climate Change and Global Warming?

Causes of Global Warming

Can we define and explain some of the possible causes of global warming ?

The Science of Carbon

Can we illustrate or outline the carbon cycle and state ways it has changed in recent history?

Direct, Indirect and Natural Causes

Let’s distinguish the possible causes of Climate Change into those which are Natural, those directly triggered by human activity, and those which are indirectly triggered by human activity.

Ocean Warming

Can we summarize the changes in our oceans that are occurring because of warming trends?

New and Former Deserts

Can we locate areas where rainfall patterns will be altered, predict how this might impact the regional plant-life and how these changes might impact the wildlife?

Food Chain

Can we describe how food-chains can be affected by Climate Change?

Koalas, Penguins and Cod

Let’s breakdown the issues that Climate Change poses for a specific species of animal and construct a “call to action” to persuade your peers.
