Famed cartoonist Jim Toomey explains the relationship between global temperature increases and severe weather events in this solutions-based video that inspires us to act. Science and humour combine to demonstrate the global impacts of climate change on sea levels and ocean temperatures. This clip delivers a clear message about the individual daily choices that we can all make to protect our planet now, and for future generations.
This video supports science outcomes related to weather, climate change and sustainable development. The theme of individual action for global change also provides an excellent introduction to lessons that examine carbon emissions, water use or alternative energy sources.
Peer to peer conservation messages are powerful. A class could implement an advocacy plan where they promote personal commitments like increasing meatless meals, turning off lights at home or growing their own vegetables. Each student could describe their sustainability goal at a school assembly or during morning announcements and a class could create a display at a local community event.
