2. Review all of the vital signs of planet Earth. Explore the related links, as well as other areas of this site.

3. For the main vital signs (Global Temperature) identify at least one NSCI 100 topic (basic chemistry and physics) that you feel can be connected to the vital sign in some manner. For example:

Carbon Dioxide: Carbon Dioxide (CO2). What does that mean? Perhaps discuss the bonding in CO2 (covalent); What chemical processes make CO2? What chemical processes consume CO2? Any of these can be pursued singularly.
