Climate change is a paramount global environmental concern. In order to understand this complex phenomena, one must examine a set of cause and effect relationships that connect the global carbon cycle and human use of fossil fuels to emerging climate change impacts such as sea level rise. In this sequence, students explore a variety of data sets, graphs, and other visuals to gain an insight into how human-caused climate change is occurring and how to address or mitigate its future impacts.
