A video/microlecture by The Knowledge Exchange that discusses the impacts of climate change on society. This video was excerpted from an edX course, “Making Sense of Climate Change Denial” available at It includes discussions by various experts on direct and immediate societal impacts of climate change and on development, production, consumption and biodiversity. The video also talks about the difference in climate change impacts for developed and developing nations. 

Students will understand the effect of climate change on present day society. They will also learn how climate change affects developing communities and nations. They will further discuss how climate change is no longer a problem for the future but one that must be dealt with immediately. 

Use this tool to help your students find answers to: 

  1. How does climate change impact society?
  2. How does climate change impact developing and developed nations differently?
  3. What are some of the current climate change issues?
