  • 1. The United Nations: Problems
    • Lesson Aims:
    • To identify a variety of problems caused by climate change.
    • To explain the consequences of inaction.
    Key Words: Agriculture Water Cycle Food Production Transport Do now: See next slide
  • 2. Scenario Brainstorm
    • As we have discussed in the previous lesson, scientists agree that the world is changing. Create a brainstorm of some of the effects of climate change on our environment.
  • 3. Lesson Objectives Most All
    • To explain the consequences of inaction.
    • To identify a variety of problems caused by climate change.
    Create Argument
  • 4. Term Outline Enquiry Questions What is the UN? What is the Israel-Palestine Conflict? How can issues facing Africa be solved? How can the International community deal with Carbon Emissions How effective has the UN been? Lesson Key Questions What are carbon emissions? What is the UN’s involvement? What are the current problems facing various countries? What are the barriers to solving the problems globally? What are the possible solutions to problems of global warming? Mock UN Debate – How can we solve the problem of global warming?
  • 5. Case Study 1: Agriculture
    • Increased ___________ and extreme _______ are causing a decline in crop productivity around the world. This is a major _______ to primary _________ who export meat and vegetables around the world. Decreased crop __________ can also mean food ________ which have many social implications.
    productivity concern economies temperatures shortages drought
  • 6. Case Study 1: Agriculture
    • Increased temperatures and extreme drought are causing a decline in crop productivity around the world. This is a major concern to primary economies who export meat and vegetables around the world. Decreased crop productivity can also mean food shortages which have many social implications.
    productivity concern economies temperatures shortages drought
  • 7. Case Study 2: Transport
    • Watch the following video.
    • Discuss: What is the problem with using too much oil?
  • 8. Case Study 2: Transport
    • Write down a list of effects on our city in the areas of agriculture, business, leisure etc. (6+ specific ideas)
    • Draw a sketch of a map which shows what Auckland would look like if we had no oil remaining.
    • Explain why your map looks the way it does.
    Scenario: Auckland has run out of petrol.
  • 9. Case Study 3: Water Cycle
    • During the 20th century, sea level rose about 15 cm (6 inches) due to melting glacier ice and expansion of warmer seawater. Models predict that sea level may rise as much as 59 cm (23 inches) during the 21st Century, threatening coastal communities, wetlands, and coral reefs.
    • In your own words; Describe what is happening with rising sea levels.
    • Which groups would be most concerned by this occurring? Explain your answer.
  • 10. Case Study 3: Water Cycle
    • Consider what we discussed in the Amazonia Unit last year. How does the water cycle work?
    • To add to the complexity: if you change weather patterns, although you may have flooding in one area, you could have drought in another.
    • Create a circular diagram which shows how the changing weather has an effect on lifestyle and nature.
  • 11. Case Study 4: Power
    • Watch the following video.
    • Complete the activities on the following slide.
  • 12. Case Study 4: Power
    • 1 minute competition:
    • Write down as many places you can get power and energy from
    • Discuss your results in pairs and add to them.
    • Discuss as a class and come up with a list of 8
    • Rank them in order related to how much energy you get from them.
    • Rank them again in order of how damaging they could be to the environment.
  • 13. Case Study 5: Manufacturing
    • Renewable energy sources are all well and good but, although they may be less costly to the environment, they are very costly to businesses. This causes inflation and a higher cost of living for us poor consumers.
    • Discuss: how does renewable energy affect business and society?
    • 1. What kinds of societies will be more effected by a change towards more renewable energy? Explain your answer.
