International Polar Foundation

The International Polar Foundation (IPF) was created with the aim of providing a novel interface between science and society. The IPF seeks to bring about a keener appreciation of the role of science, and in particular scientific research in the Polar Regions, through the re-examination of the World and the impact of human actions on the environment and evolution of millennial climate cycles.

Richard North - Sceptic

I’m a climate change sceptic: I think there are huge uncertainties (good and bad) about the phenomenon of anthropogenic global warming and much will be revealed as the current generation of adults refuses to do much to stop adding carbon to the atmosphere.

NASA Climate Change Website

NASA currently has more than a dozen Earth science spacecraft/instruments in orbit studying all aspects of the Earth system (oceans, land, atmosphere, biosphere, cyrosphere), with several more planned for launch in the next few years. In 2004, NASA’s spending on climate science exceeded all other Federal agencies, combined. NASA spent $1.3 billion on climate science that year.

Home Energy Conservation

This website has been recommended by a Girl Scouts Troop from America.

It provided a large number of suitable links that were invaluable in helping them attain their Home Scientist badges.

Teachers TV Videos

These resources are now hosted on a variety of websites. I'm providing the link to the Secondary School Resources on the STEM UK website but a search on the internet should reveal other website hosts.

Virtual Courseware Project

The Virtual Courseware Project produces interactive, online simulations for the life science laboratory or for earth science field studies. The Virtual Courseware Project is supported by grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation and the California State University.
