Climate Change: A Simple Guide (BBC)

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Climate Change. Global Change, Sustainability

The COP26 global climate summit in Glasgow in November is seen as crucial if climate change is to be brought under control, a word that almost seems too strong.  At the summit, about 200 countries are being asked for their plans to cut carbon dioxide emissions. These would be enough that it could lead to major changes to our everyday lives. 

If you'd like a refresher course on climate change before the summit, this may be useful, "Our Planet Now" (BBC) has a simple guide to climate change. It includes relevant and accessible graphs, illustrations and links. Below are the major topics.

--What is climate change?

--What is the impact of climate change?

--How will different parts of the world be affected?

--What are governments doing?

--What can individuals do?
