About Global Warming



The Community Cool Campaign arose from a concern over the threat of global climate change and the dramatic impact it is having on our global environment, our everyday lives, and our future. But what is it all about exactly?

To help you learn more about the most pressing scientific issue of our time, here are some of the most respected resources currently available on-line:

For kids:

  • Global Warming for Kids offers an assortment of resources including other website, interactive games for ages 7-11 and 11-15, science fair projects, multi-media links and much more. Created by EducationforClimateChange.org.

  • The EPA offers Global Warming, What It Is to help guide children through the science of global warming using helpful graphics and animations. Worth a visit!

  • Kids Recycling Zone, a site suggested by an earth science tutor at the "Enriching Kids" organization, introduces children to recycling actions they can become involved in.

  • Action for Nature encourages young people to take personal action to nurture and protect a healthy environment on which all life depends. This site has a lot of links to organizations like Sierra Club for kids, etc.; also some games.
For adults:
  • IPCC Report: The definitive report on climate change from the Nobel-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 2007's Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), has four main parts that make for fascinating, if heavy-duty, reading.

  • Union of Concerned Scientists - Global Warming: An ongoing discussion of the science behind global warming, and references to "solutions", things you can do to help stop global warming.

  • National Science Foundation offers an Exploratorium that provides easy-to-digest overviews of global climate change and its effects on the Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere (oceans), cryosphere (snow and ice cover), and biosphere (plants and animals).

  • RealClimate: A commentary site (blog) on climate science that also offers the best, most up-to-date resources on climate change available, created by working climate scientists for the interested public and journalists.

  • Climate History: Written by a physicist and supported by the American Institute of Physics and the National Science Foundation, this offers a fascinating history of how scientists came to understand the man-made causes of climate change, and how long it took.

  • An Inconvenient Truth - The website to support the Academy Award-winning movie by Al Gore. Has a great Take Action section.

For everyone:

  • Extreme Ice is a compelling, beautifully photographed hour long movie first presented on Nova, a PBS program, on March 24, 2009. Researchers show the effects of global warming on glaciers and ice caps through time-lapse photography. They take us to places never seen before, even descending deep into ice crevasses and other dangerous, unexplored places, to bring us the "forensic evidence" of what is happening. A program for the whole family.

  • Watch the official Earth Hour 2009 video. This year, Earth Hour is on March 28th, 2009 at 8:30pm. Click Here for more information about Earth Hour.
