The Enhanced Greenhouse Effect
This online resource provides information suitable for Year 9 and 10 students on the role of the Earth's Greenhouse Effect and the impact of human activities in enhancing the effect.
The web page provides a range of historical data sets for average global temperatures and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. It also provides information about the range of greenhouse gases and examines the use of climate modelling in determining the causes and impacts of the enhanced Greenhouse Effect.
The short video and many links examine the arguments about the origins of climate change and the role of humans in driving climate change. Specific data debunking arguments that human activities do not play a significant role in increasing global temperatures is compelling.
