Summary:Climate change is a major global issue of our time. Understanding the essential principles of climate science will enable students to better assess information and to contribute to what will be ongoing climate discussions as informed citizens. Students observe and contrast thermal properties of three major greenhouse gases. Using simple, readily available materials, students collect temperature change over time for dry air, water saturated air, carbon dioxide, and methane.
