1 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 1 Climate Science in the Classroom Source: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

2 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 2 Use the science of climate and climate change to engage students as you introduce or exemplify many classroom chemistry concepts; for example phase change electromagnetic radiation energy energy conservation molecular structure isotopes heat capacity equilibrium acid-base chemistry

3 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 3 Phase changes in Earth’s ice/water Land and sea ice are disappearing. Why? Grinnell Glacier, Glacier Nat'l Park, 1940 Grinnell Glacier, Glacier Nat'l Park, 2006 Source: NOAA

5 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 5 Electromagnetic radiation and planetary energy balance Energy balance: solar energy in = planet radiant energy out (mostly visible) (thermal infrared) Source: Wikipedia Source: American Chemical Society (ACS)

6 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 6 Electromagnetic radiation and planetary energy balance Energy balance: solar energy in = planet radiant energy out (mostly visible) (thermal infrared) Source: ACS

7 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 7 Electromagnetic radiation and planetary energy balance Energy balance: solar energy in = planet radiant energy out (mostly visible) (thermal infrared) T obs > T P Are the atmospheres responsible? If so, how? Source: ACS

8 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 8 Electromagnetic radiation and planetary energy balance Energy imbalance: solar energy in > planet radiant energy out (mostly visible) (thermal infrared) Source: ACS

9 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 9 Electromagnetic radiation and planetary energy balance Energy balance is attained when the planet is warm enough to emit sufficient energy to compensate for the atmospheric trapping. T obs > T P Source: ACS

10 Climate Science in the Classroom American Chemical Society 10 Electromagnetic radiation and planetary energy balance Since the Industrial Revolution, burning fossil fuels (coal, oil, & gas) has added large amounts of greenhouse gases to Earth's atmosphere. Source: IPCC
