Diagrams and Explanation
     Greenhouse Effect
     Carbon Cycle
     Climatic Factors: (1) Latitude, (2) Altitude (e.g., mountains) and (3) Ocean Currents

Short Answer
    Long-term factors for climate (e.g., Tilt, Wobble, Solar Variation)
    Carbon dioxide as the most important Greenhouse Gas
    How we compare emissions of different Greenhouse Gases
    Comparing impact of Greenhouse Gases (e.g., life in atmosphere, concentration in
       atmosphere)
    Climate Change – Real or Myth
    Components of Earth’s climatic cycle
    Natural factors that influence climate
    How humans have altered the carbon cycle
    Solutions for environmental problems: adapt, technological hope, “do nothing”, mitigation
    Calculating Ecological Footprint
