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.

What will happen to many of the world's major cities currently at sea level if the oceans rise? What do you think may happen to people in these cities if all the ice melts? What additional problems might this cause?
