NASA Video: “A Warming World” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fv11W5OODeM) 1. What has been special about the last decade on Earth?

 

2. How much does the sun’s cycle influence overall temperature on Earth?

 

 

3. How does reflection from surfaces affect the temperature on Earth?

 

 

 

4. Why is the effect of water vapor on climate change so difficult to predict?

 

 

 

5. What is the second most common greenhouse gas, and why is it significant in terms of the

effect of humans on climate change?

 

 

 

NASA Video: “Melting Ice, Rising Seas” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEuEqgdJXHg) 1. What two things happen to the ocean as the planet heats up?

 

 

2. How much of Earth’s freshwater is frozen in the world’s ice fields? If it all melted (which is

not expected), how much would sea level rise?

 

 

3. What are some effects that might occur if the one-meter sea level rise predicted by many

scientists happens?
