Climate Change: the Impacts
From Teachers TV, this video looks at the potential impacts of climate change. Through interviews and natural history footage, the video focuses on examples from around the globe.
Environments including African drought plains and the diverse Bangladeshi topography are analysed. The impact that climate change is having on polar bears in the Arctic and on coral reef ecosystems in the tropics are also discussed.
The video makes the point that, though such threats to the environment are real, their final impact is not inevitable. It encourages students to think about and discuss what should be done.
