Concept 1 – Planetary Fever

These NASA web sites have some good background information on Climate Change:

https://climate.nasa.gov/

https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/world-of-change/global-temperatures

Our world in data website has regularly updated data on greenhouse gas emissionshttps://ourworldindata.org/co2-and-other-greenhouse-gas-emissions

IPCC report on Climate Change can be found at – https://www.ipcc.ch/sr15/

Concept 2 Climate Bathtub

The Climate Bathtub concept is adapted from previous models developed by:

For a more detailed look at the science behind the climate bathtub take a look at this excellent video by Drew Jones at Climate Interactive which was shared as part of their Climate Leader course –

Tipping points is a complex topic with a lot of confusing and, in some cases slightly alarmist, information available on the web. We have carefully selected two links which should give you a good and balanced perspective on current thinking around this topic.

Concept 3 – Carbon Walk

For some useful background information about carbon emissions targets and carbon footprint calculation see:

Concept 4 – System and Self

For a good introduction to spheres of influence and individual actions – see https://www.theguardian.com/environment/climate-consensus-97-per-cent/2017/may/19/study-inspiring-action-on-climate-change-is-more-complex-than-you-might-think
