Useful material to teach students analytical and critical thinking skills.The article appreciates global problems,specifically the relationship between poverty and sustainability.

Concludes well that consumation is the issue not population. Pets in the developed world are better off,compared with people suving in the developing world. Efficiency, we need to consume less and produce more.

Technical Remarks:

Windows media player, and internet are the software needed.

Some resources are good, some are great, TED Talks are stellar.

Technical Remarks:

Easy access and good directions on how to use these.
Time spent reviewing site: I go to this site at least once a week. I have these on my IPOD and share them with family, friends, and educators in Minnesota.
