Global Climate Change and Coral Reefs
  Adah (San Antonio, TX) on February 23, 2011
  This web seminar shows a direct relationship between higher global temperature and its effect on coral reefs. The PowerPoint provides the basics about both global climate change and the basics of coral reefs. The podcast is a short and the author uses the charts to explain only about global climate change. Whether you use the podcast alone or the slides from the PDF archived web seminar file, which can be downloaded, both provide an effective classroom resource to tell the story about global climate change.
