This presentation was featured at the Will Steger Foundation's 2007 Summer Institute. This PowerPoint was presented by Daniel Enderton, a PhD student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This presentation is a very detailed one about the scientific processes contributing to climate change and its consequences, specifically surrounding the arctic region.
The goals of the 2007 Summer Institute were:
- to provide background knowledge on global warming science and implications with a focus on the polar regions
- to provide an overview of the renewable energy landscape
- to provide tools and resources for implementing cross-disciplinary climate change curriculum in the classroom
- to create an opportunity for participants to design an action plan related to climate change solutions.

TEACHING NOTES / CONTEXT FOR USE
This long PowerPoint could be easily used as a whole or edited to suit a professor's needs. It includes a large amount of useful scientific graphs and images that might be extracted and used separately. It could be a very useful resource for professors looking for images explaining scientific processes that affect the climate, images of climate change evidence, and graphs showing possible consequences of climate change.
Assessment is at the discretion of the educator.
