Climate Change: Where We've Been, Where We're Headed--A Film Review of "Plan B: Mobilizing to Save Civilization"
Kumler, Lori
Social Education, v76 n2 p109-110 Mar-Apr 2012
"Plan B: Mobilizing to Save Civilization," has much to offer nearly any social studies classroom from 9th grade to college levels. The film is based on Lester R. Brown's book by the same name and is the 12th episode in the Journey to Planet Earth public television series. The film illustrates the complexity of climate change and its connections to social and natural sciences, making it ideal for social studies classes. Plan B can be used in a variety of ways: as a springboard for discussion, to illustrate concepts, or to introduce a research project. The film highlights several connections between natural resources and governance. (Contains 1 table.)
