Abstract: 

In the year 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the Nobel Peace Prize for its work on researching and spreading the facts about global warming. This engaging and thought provoking CLIMB class spreads these same facts to teenagers, helping them to understand the impact their actions have on their natural environment. Students watch scenes, participate in whole group activities, and hold small group discussions, all designed to help them learn about global warming and what they can do to limit or even reverse its effects.

Educational Objectives:
1. To help students trace the effects their actions have on the concentration of greenhouse gases (notably carbon dioxide and methane) in the earth's atmosphere
2. To share the logic that a majority of scientists use to support ideas about the effects of greenhouse gases on climate change (global warming)
3. To share the possible geological, oceanographic and meteorological effects of climate change
4. To brainstorm the effects that these geological, oceanographic, and meteorological changes could have on human life
5. To brainstorm the actions students can take to contribute to the limitation or reversal of the effects of global warming
6. To help students to envision a lifestyle that would include the changes they have brainstormed
