Description:

This article describes an activity in which students use web-based resources to investigate global climate change. The investigation takes the form of a computer activity in which they collect data from the internet on temperature, concentrations of various gases, oxygen isotopes, and others. The activity begins by posing the question: 'Should the U.S. and other countries limit emissions of greenhouse gases to reduce global warming?' The students then construct graphs, look for trends, and report their findings.
