These resources from the National Resource Council, published in 2012, provide an excellent package of teaching materials on the subject of climate change.
The National Research Council is pleased to present this booklet in three parts that (1) summarizes the current state of knowledge about climate change; (2) explains some impacts expected in this century and beyond; and (3) examines how science can help inform choices about managing and reducing the risks posed by climate change.
