This page introduces the Enhanced Greenhouse Effect and anthropogenic causes of climate change. It uses a number of focused videos and worksheets activities to allow students to explore the key concepts. It then develops a student investigation and report based on the visually stunning carbon map resource.
Lesson Time: 1 Hour
- To describe the enhanced greenhouse effect
- To describe and explain the spatial variation in greenhouse gas sources and emissions
Watch the David Attenborough clip and make notes on the conclusions made from the scientists explanation of the hockey stick graph
The enhanced greenhouse effect is the impact on the climate from the additional heat retained due to the increased amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that humans have released into the Earth’s atmosphere since the industrial revolution
Look at the diagram below and spot the difference to to add annotation to the diagram to explain the human Enhanced Greenhouse Effect.
