SWBAT calculate how quickly humans will exceed our carbon budget based on the burning of fossil flues. 

Students read and analyze a infograph that shows how much carbon dioxide can be put into the atmosphere before catastrophic climate change. Students then use a Desmos activity to graph 3 different secnariors for fossil fuel usage, business as usual, increased fossil fuel burning, and movement to clean energy.
