Global Warming vs. Climate Change. National Climate Assessment Teaching Resources. Part of NOAA's "Teaching Climate" section, the National Climate Assessment offers a wealth of actionable science about the causes, effects, risks and possible responses to human-caused climate change. The NASA-supported Earth System Science Education Alliance (ESSEA) provides modules for teachers taking ESSEA courses, but teachers may also use the modules with their students.

There is currently a strong scientific consensus that the Earth is warming and that this warming is mainly caused by human activities. This consensus is supported by various studies of scientists' opinions and by position statements of scientific organizations, many of which explicitly agree with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) synthesis reports.

Most scientists believe that Earth's climate is changing and in fact heating up. However, they don't all agree about the rate of change, the extent of the impact on our environment, or what can or should be done about it. This module is based on the premise that understanding what influences Earth's energy balance is necessary (though not sufficient) to make sound decisions about climate change. Among the key concepts: how weather and climate relate to transfer of energy in and out of Earth's atmosphere, and how human activities have changed Earth's land, oceans, and atmosphere.
