Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 4, 9:12 PM

If you are looking for a visual that looks at the new rules surrounding carbon emission and at what each state may have to do and how others are perceiving the new regulations you should check out this visual. You may scroll down the page (first click through to the site) or you can view it as a slideshow.

This visual would be great to share with students as it is designed as a cartoon (with many panels). It is easy to understand and describes where carbon emissions come from (in the US) as well as the impact this may have on countries outside the US.

Hector Alonzo's curator insight, December 15, 3:13 PM

Hopefully seeing the efforts of these African countries to better their ecosystem gives the rest of the world the kick it needs to help out countries that are suffering. The countries are the ones that are hit with the worst conditions for their land, causing it to dry up due to the extreme heat and limited rainfall, the overgrazing of animals feeding of the land and contributing to the lands degradation. This Project is moving ahead nicely, with the countries establishing sustainable farms that will help food production.

Alec Castagno's curator insight, December 17, 11:30 AM

By fixing the environmental factors threatening the region, these countries will see not just an improvement in their lands and biodiversity but across political and economic factors as well. It can increase crop yield which can in turn help offer stability to regions that are experiencing problems stemming from poverty in insufficient food sources. The project is promising because it is not a blanket plan across the entire region, but is tailored to fit the unique and different places found throughout the area.

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, Today, 11:56 AM

I like the idea of these countries who face the same issues joining together to combat and find a solution for there problems with climate change, desertion, gentrification. I like the idea of the African continent joining arms in order to address the same issues there neighboring countries face. While Africa is always portrayed as a land ridden with war and strife with one another, this great image of all these nations uniting is a positive move towards a bright future for the continent.

Climate Change Video Guide

Climate Change Video Guide | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
An in-depth, multimedia look at climate change, its global impact, and efforts to combat it.

 

This guide on climate change from the Council on Foreign Relations (independent think tank) covers many of the geopolitical, economic and environmental issues that confront the Earth as global temperatures rise.  Rather than produce a full length feature film, they have organized the this as an interactive video, allowing the user to get short (a couple of minutes) answer to specific questions about the science, foreign policy or economic ramifications of adapting to climate change. 

 

Tags: climate change, environmental adaption, economic, industry.
