As I referenced in one of my previous posts, Climate Change is an extremely hot topic right now in multiple circles of society. As such, it is important that we are educating our students about the global impacts of this epidemic. This National Geographic article cites a recent study published in the globally respected science journal Nature. The importance of this study cannot be overstated: there is concrete evidence to suggests that visible climate change will occur as early as 2020. By visible climate change the authors of the National Geographic article and the study itself mean the loss of low lying landscapes due to rising sea levels. For those who may disregard this a problem unrelated to the United States, I would point out that the study does suggest that major urban centers around the world, including in the United States (i.e. New York City and Miami), are vulnerable. This subject transcends the science curriculum and expands into civics, mathematics, and language arts. For educators looking for an engaging topic to link across multiple content areas, my suggestion would be climate change.
