Global Warming: Emerging Science and Understanding DVD
Eighty percent of the American population now believe that man is responsible for global warming. Emerging science, however, is providing important new understanding of this issue. Yet, this information is not getting out to people, especially to our school children.
Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth is being shown in nearly every school in America. Although well produced, it has so many errors that the British High Court ruled in 2007 that Gore’s DVD could not be shown in British public schools without a disclaimer that it is a political, not a documentary film.Global Warming, Emerging Science and Understanding brings balance and perspective to the global warming debate. Dozens of respected scientists from all over the world explain new and emerging science about global warming.
Designed for High and Middle School classrooms, this DVD and its accompanying resources provides a clear and refreshing understanding to students of this important issue. The DVD is divided up into three lessons with corresponding lesson plans for the teacher and resource material for the student.
Lesson 1 (15:37 min)--Overview of emerging science, past climate, temperature data errors, CO2/temperature relationships, and the huge effect of water vapor and clouds.
Lesson 2 (17:39 min)--The United Nations Inter- governmental Panel on Climate Change, CO2 warming fingerprint does not match reality, violent storms and hurricanes.
Lesson 3 (18:00 min)--Melting icecaps & flooding, the role of the sun, the importance of CO2 for life and other benefits, and the true nature of science.
