Larry Ferlazzo, an educator I follow on Twitter, has compiled a list of great resources related to climate change on his site.

(I warn you, though, once you start poking around, you might find yourself lost deep inside a website with incredible depth and copious resources.)

What are some other climate change resources that teachers might utilize in the classroom?
