New Review Is Climate Change Good for Us?
The warm-up is not relevant, since by the time you reach the end of a unit on climate change, most will not feel that it is good for humans. The thought-provoking questions, however, make a poignant class discussion about its effects. A neat chart is provided to guide learners through the talk and to provide a place to record responses.
