Global warming is still a topic that stirs a range of emotions in people. Is it real? Is it made up? Is it something to worry about or not? Will it actually affect you? But, love it or hate it, the topic is not going to go away. We have just had some training on how to teach this and I thought it was worth sharing with you. Take the premise 'Global Warming is going to cause more extreme weather patterns'. Then, think of the ...
To conclude this weeks series of YouTube videos on Global Warming and Carbon I have embedded the final two URL's below. EvphJO8VKlc M0D5YHVMk8A Hope you enjoy them and have a good weekend!
This where the clips start to get interesting and quite relevant to IB Chemistry. Watch the clip and then answer the question below! Q9u8vM8YjeU There is an 'error' or some incorrect science teaching in the 1 minute -> 1 minute 30 seconds range ...... but what is it?!
I have come across the following YouTube clips on carbon and global warming and thought that I would use them as a mini topic this week. They could, I guess, be used an organic chemistry resource (OK, obvious, I know), but also used in conjunction with the bonding unit, the energetics unit and the environmental option. ypbb9Zi5Tao
The recycling of Carbon on the earth is an essential process as it helps maintain the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. Carbon is stored (locked up) in fossil fuels, the sea, organic material and the atmosphere. This balance was evenly maintained …. until we came along and started to cut down trees or burn fossil fuels, increasing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.
