Bill Nye The Science Guy on Wind

Heating and spinning of our planet are what generate wind. A very large tank is used to model the phenomenon of convection, which is explained by Bill, but never specifically mentioned. If you show this mini movie to your meteorology learners, ask them to explain the difference in density, what force pulls the cold air down, and the name of the method of heat transfer that gets these air currents flowing.
