Description:
Earth's climate is complex, and therefore so are many details of the science of global warming, but I can tell you from my own teaching experience that the key ideas are understandable to most fourth- and fifth-graders. Indeed, even the more arcane details that you may hear debated in the media are usually simple enough once you focus on the heart of the matter.
