This a wonderful article about climate change for your kids to read to begin making global connections and to make decisions that will affect their earth. The kids will read about the difference between weather and climate, how scientists study climate and how climate change may affect weather.

Group Discussion Questions:
According to the article, the Indian government thinks it is unfair for richer countries to ask
poorer countries to cut down on carbon emissions. Ask: What’s your opinion? Do you agree or
disagree with the Indian government? Explain. Will the Copenhagen meeting be a turning point in the fight against global warming? Why? What can you do to help the planet?
