Where Do I Look?

Now that we have presented some information to you, it is time for you to complete research so that you can make your own decisions about issues that relate to the atmosphere.

Your task is to research, evaluate, and report on international efforts to protect the atmosphere. This is quite a broad subject. To help you with your research efforts, try an Internet search for some of the following topics:

  • Clean Air Act
  • Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer
  • Vienna Convention on the Protection of the Ozone Layer
  • Helsinki Declaration
  • The Kyoto Protocol
  • The Toronto and Ottawa Conferences
  • United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
  • United Nations Conference on Environment and Development
  • United Nations Environment Programme
  • Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Find a topic that looks interesting to you, not one that just looks "easy." Good luck with your research!
