This video gives an overview of Climate and Health, and especially about the vector-borne diseases.
In this lesson plan, students learn about the impacts of climate change on human health. The lesson plan contains several modules and case studies on issues such as Temperature-related Death and Illness; Air Quality Impacts; Vector-Borne Diseases; Water-Related Illness; Food Safety; Mental Health and Well-Being.
|In this lesson plan, students are introduced to the concept of ‘Climate Refugees’, learn about how climate change is forcing large populations to migrate from their homes and what should the societal response be to such a human migration caused by climate change.|
|This micro-lecture as part of an e-learning course introduces the linkages between climate change and food security and how global hunger and climate change can be addressed simultaneously.|
|In this audio podcast from the Climate History Podcast, “Professor Dagomar Degroot interviews Professor John McNeill (Georgetown University) about the Anthropocene: the proposed geological epoch in which Earth’s environment is most profoundly shaped by humanity.”|
|Ted McIntyre in conversation with D.R. Tucker discussing public health risks of climate change following the release of ‘The Climate and Health Assessment’ Report from the White House (USA).|
In this activity, students can calculate the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) based on the mean sea level pressure data spanning 80 years. The calculated SOI can be compared with a case study of the Huanghe River.
In this video, Michael McCormick discusses use of latest tools of climate science and other science technologies to better understand the history of Medieval Europe and Rome.
|This storymap (from ESRI) helps students to learn about several communities across the world that are facing severe threats due to climate change through the use of mapmaking and visualization techniques. An associated worksheet (from the Human Imprint) helps students learn more about the issue through a series of suggested questions.|
In this activity, students are provided with mean atmospheric CO2 concentration from the Mauna Loa observatory from 1950 to the present. This dataset and associated exercise can be used to teach introductory calculus and topics in differentiation such as polynomial differentiation, tangent line problem, and curve fitting amongst others.
