Description

Students role play a courtroom trial to discuss energy use as it is related to climate change.

Abstract

This activity encourages discussion about energy use decisions, greenhouse gases, and global warming. Students role play a courtroom trial to discuss energy use as it is related to climate change: Cars are accused of emitting a dangerous gas (carbon dioxide) into the
atmosphere, and students (the jury) must decide how harmful they think automobiles really are and what, if anything, should be done about them.
