Economics classes can evaluate how the economics of agriculture and our food systems will have to adapt to the changes in weather patterns.
Science classes can use this video and this other related resource for lessons about the water cycle, which is altered by the increase in global temperatures.
The video presents the uncertainties posed by climate change on agricultural production. Shifts in climate can cause extreme weather events, short-term droughts, unpredictable rainfall, violent storms, etc. It makes planting more difficult as farmers are no longer able to predict planting seasons using their indigenous knowledge and intuition. This resource is recommended for teaching.
