Teachers will be able to:
– Analyze the predicted near and long term economic impact of climate change.
– Explore the many economic challenges of climate change and investigate how governments can forge a path ahead.
In this economics webinar, use lessons to help students evaluate policy options to cope with climate in the decades ahead.
How will the U.S. government and global community address the economic issues related to climate change? Which communities will be impacted the most?
We will examine the predicted economic costs associated with the changing climate and discuss some possible government interventions and private market incentives to mitigate the consequences. Teachers will be provided with valuable resources and lesson plans to guide their students as they grapple with economic policy moving forward in the face of a changing climate.
