Concept 1

Planetary Fever

First in the series of concepts, Planetary Fever, introduces the concept of global warming in the context of a human fever and goes on to discuss green house gases and how they cause warming.

This is intended as an introduction to climate change for those who are new to the subject or find some of the scientific jargon confusing. It helps to provide a perspective on why seemingly small changes in temperature can have such a dramatic effect on our climate.
