Let’s Begin…

My grade 6 class was discussing climate change as part of our Science course, and I asked this question. What one species could we afford to lose to make the planet a better place? A student puts her hand up and says, "Us." The class then began to look at all of the things humans(Us) have done to this planet which have negatively impacted it. All agreed-either we have to change or we will all go.

How high will the seas rise if all of the ice melts?
