Climate change

Climate change is the environmental challenge of the century. It is affecting the planet and our lives in many different ways such as the increase in extreme weather events, melting glaciers and polar ice, increasing droughts and flooding. The main contributor to climate change is human activities which are fuelled by consumerism and materialism. Human activities on earth as a result of Kali Yugas industrial age have affected our environment, the habitats and biodiversity of plants and animals and our own quality of life. This unit of work will explore the causes of climate change, how it is affecting physical and human environments and what we can do about it as individuals, communities and as a nation.
