How to teach … climate change (“kids will suffer the wrath of CC so they have to learn it properly”)

See on Scoop.it - ecoNVERGE® – Inspire • Harmony • Balance

Climate change is a rich topic to explore in the classroom. From science and geography to politics, it’s an area with roots in a range of subjects and can be a great source for debate

Climate change takes on added significance this week as thousands of people across the UK take part in Climate Week, a national campaign to raise awareness of the issue and steps that can be taken to address it.

This week we have a collection of resources to help your students explore the wider issue of climate change and its potential impact.

For secondary pupils, start with the Met Office’s Guide to Climate Science. It answers a range of questions including: what is weather; what is climate; has our climate changed before; and what could be the impact of future climate change around the world? The guide is accompanied by a Weather and Climate presentation and teacher’s notes. There is also aClimate Zones Poster that helps explain how human activity is leading to changes in weather and climate.

Nostalgic: Paul Genovese from Mind Spark Cinema on Vimeo.

I was born and raised in the small valley town of Fernie, British Columbia. I started riding bikes at an early age and became addicted almost instantly. Even though I’ve spent the majority of my last few seasons traveling and riding unreal spots, I still find myself becoming homesick if I am away from my home turf for too long.

My idea for this video was to re-visit some classic Fernie zones and create some new features to get down on. When Mind Spark and Harookz said they were keen to come shoot, I knew it had to be the perfect Fernie experience. We couldn’t have asked for better weather and I got lucky on a couple bad crashes. Overall, it was one of the best weeks of my life.

The features shown took weeks of hard work from myself and my close friends Dylan Siggers and Matt Dennis - huge thanks to those two homies. Also I can’t thank Mind Spark and Harookz enough for their time!

Typhoon Haiyan from Janssen Powers on Vimeo.

Natural disasters are grizzly things. There’s no two ways about it. With little warning they appear, and when they leave they almost always take lives with them. There’s no one to blame, and often times there’s little that can be done in terms of preparation. After typhoon Haiyan destroyed the Philippines I was asked to document the aftermath. Naturally, I intended to capture a story of destruction. What I found however, was a story of resilience.

I hope this story encourages you to be thankful for what you have. Not just that you have a good job or a nice car, but simply thankful that you’re alive and have people around you to share your life with.

Weatherwatch: Carbon released in the Philippines might never be recovered
The Guardian
Millions of uprooted trees will bump up global warming, by adding carbon to the atmosphere.

Meanwhile, Haiyan has brought environmental disaster too. Millions of uprooted trees will bump up global warming, by adding carbon to the atmosphere. It is too early to say how much carbon, but calculations for previous tropical cyclones show the figures can be huge. In 2005Hurricane Katrina released an estimated 105 teragrams of carbon (well over half the amount absorbed annually by forests in the US), by tearing up around 320m trees. Haiyan’s tally may be even higher, as the Philippines has greater average tree cover than the eastern US.

But longer term forest regrowth may recapture the lost carbon. A recent study published in Environmental Research Letters shows that hurricane activity caused a net release of carbon in the eastern United Statesduring the latter half of the 19th century (due to a string of large storms and the existence of larger forests), but became a carbon sink by the 20th century (as regrowth outweighed hurricane damage).

Climate projections suggest tropical cyclones may become stronger and more frequent over coming decades. If that is the case then the carbon released by Haiyan and subsequent cyclones may never be recovered.
