United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Last Updated on 2011-05-18 00:00:00 The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was created to address possible solutions and worldwide changes that United Nations Members could take part in to "reduce global warming and cope with whatever temperature increases were inevitable."  The UNFCCC sets an overall framework for intergovernmental efforts to tackle the challenge posed by climate change.  It recognizes that the climate system is a shared resource whose stability can be affected by industrial and other emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.  Under the Convention, governments gather and share information on greenhouse gas emissions, national policies and best practices.  Governments also launch national strategies for addressing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to expected impacts, including the provision of financial and...

Website: Climate Literacy & Energy Awareness Network - CLEAN Last Updated on 2011-02-15 00:00:00 CLEAN, the Climate Literacy & Energy Awareness Network, is a National Science Digital Library Pathway of reviewed and annotated existing online resources relating to key climate and energy concepts. The current CLEAN collection includes nearly 100 digital learning activities for grades 6 - 16, and the website also has suggestions on "teaching with" various climate and energy principles and concepts. To improve civic science literacy around climate and energy topics. The resources within CLEAN are diverse and authoritative.  They have been reviewed by science and teaching peers who look for scientific accuracy and currency, ease of use and, where appropriate, pedagogical scaffolding. All materials within CLEAN are teaching materials. CLEAN also includes an online forum for discussing the use of resources or challenges... More »
