172 Days - Sharing a Fantastic Resource, Crisis Guide: Climate Change

Here's a great multi-media resource on the climate emergency that we discovered this morning. It's from the Council on Foreign Relations, which is US-based so some of it has an American focus, but that's okay.
I know that school is out or almost out for the summer in many parts of the world, but that makes this a perfect time for teachers to educate themselves on the climate crisis.
One tip: Don't bother reading anything older than 2008. Research findings are coming at us so fast and furious that anything older than about 2007 could be out of date already.

Get ready to go back to school (or work) with a firm grasp of why climate change constitutes a global emergency ... and then teach that to your students (or colleagues) — they have a right to know.
