Climate Change Rescue Education Modules
Together, the Climate Change Rescue Education Modules comprise a practical, hands-on set of bite-sized climate science for all ages, to bridge the gaps from Citizen Scientist to Climate Scientist.
Summary of the Climate Change Rescue Education Modules
Module 1: What is a Chaos Theory and what are Stability Attractor points in the Tipping Point Concept?
Module 2: How does the Earth’s albedo change when different surfaces: vegetation, ice, are illuminated and clouds cover the Earth? And when the full wavelengths in EarthShine are included?
Module 3: How do you determine the wavelengths of a Gravity wave? Of a Planetary Wave?
Module 4: How are satellite, remote, Earth-observing spectra analyzed to determine colours of our planet’s landscape?
Module 5: How do greenhouse gas clouds form?
Module 6: How do you find the solar influences, and lunar and solar tides in a data time series?
Module 7: How do you make noctilucent clouds? What is the physical ‘recipe’ and the ‘ingredients’ ?
Module 8: How do you determine EarthShine? Show the physics and math.
Module 9: What is the troposphere, stratosphere, and mesosphere and the primary physical characteristics of each?
Module 10: What are the vertical mechanical and thermal drivers in the troposphere, stratosphere and the mesosphere?
Module 11: How is our middle atmosphere like a refrigerator?
Module 12: What are the most common misunderstandings of Climate Science? Or how to talk to your neighbor to gain a climate change ally.
Module 13: A Simple Energy Balance Model of the Earth
Bonus Module: Life Elsewhere in the Universe. How might we use the concept of EarthShine to understand the atmospheres of planets outside of our Solar System?
