Human causes of climate

Human causes of climate

Investigating how global climate is now changing as a result of human activity, and there is uncertainty about future climates. The PPT and resources looks at how human activities (industry, transport, energy, farming produce greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane) that cause the enhanced greenhouse effect leading to global warming). This PPT is split into two lessons, with an optional lesson focusing on a UN Conference role play looking at climate change and countries around the world. Resources include a homework guide on different types of human causes of climate change. Designed for GCSE but can be used for KS3.
