Thank you @APHumanGeog for Climate Change Video Guide: excellent for students and teachers

Thank you @APHumanGeog for Climate Change Video Guide: excellent for students and teachers | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | 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.

Top 10 new resources (at least new to me) from 2011...I'll release one or two a day for the rest of year.  Coming in at #10, is this fantastic link that is an excellent way to compare data from different countries.  This link compares MANY countries' demographics in a very personal manner.  Instead of just using impersonal (and to many student inaccessible) raw data, this site transforms the statistics into numbers that relates to their lives helps to foster geographic empathy in the classroom discussions about development.

Globalization discussions about raising disparity within countries often overshadow the growing inequalities between countries. What qualifies as middle class in the United States can be the equivalent of an upper-class lifestyle for many nations around the world. The same can be said in comparing what the poor in America have access to in comparison to many developing countries.

A great resource to compare the liveability of countries using a range of criteria.
