NASA has published a good deal of evidence of climate change on its Global Climate Change site. What better way to win over the climate-change deniers in your life than by turning to the folks who faked the Apollo moon landing? (I kid, I kid.)
According to NASA:
“Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. Studying these climate data collected over many years reveal the signals of a changing climate.”
The site features interactive data documenting rising sea levels, an exponential increase in CO2 in the atmosphere, and global temperature. This is good info your lesson plans, as well as for students doing research on the subject. NASA’s climate change site should be useful to any science or ecology teacher, or anybody who cares about the environment.
