Determine mathematically an individual’s impact on the environment (carbon footprint, water usage, landfill contribution) and develop a plan to reduce personal contribution.
Human Activities and Climate Change
Humans are a part of their environment and may have a detrimental impact on the environment. Using evidence based on scientific research, efforts are underway to repair the environment. Historical and current regional and global models illustrate the changes in the environment.
Students will discuss the direct and indirect impacts of certain types of human activities on the Earth’s climate.
