Description:

This activity lets students discover first hand how the big issues in climate change -- here, the increase in atmospheric CO2 and the utility of carbon offsets -- can be understood through measurement, application of simple concepts, and "back of the envelope" estimates. It also provides students both personal and global context for understanding the magnitude of current greenhouse gas emissions.
