    How so I subscribe to the blog to get the practice questions?

      So far, all questions are posted on the website, but I wanted to also send them via email weekly so that people didn’t always have to check the site. I just introduced myself to a mail subscription service and put it on the front of my homepage, I hope I can make it work! But you can sign up now!

    I teach high school as well.

    Thanks for your site, but please note the “Carbon Map” link you provided (under Interactive Mapping) is questionable as a source. I say this because at first glance from watching the video I see that the “land area” map is horribly wrong. You should notice this when you look at the depiction of Greenland, which is actually about 1.1 times the size of Mexico. The data used for the “Carbon Map” for land area is from the world bank, but is data of “agricultural area” (!) and not land area when you check their provided source. (So the about 400,000 square km area used for their map is Greenland’s agricultural area and not total area, which is about 2,000,000+ square kilometers (or about 5 times greater than the data used for area on the Carbon Map).

    I haven’t looked at much else on your site yet, but maybe you can consider dropping the Carbon Map link and consider posting a similar one if you can find it.

      I would love to attach your analysis of the Carbon map on the post itself in the comments. My goal is to make access the resources, the individual can pick it apart and determine if it is any value to them. Would you allow me to do this? Thanks for the comment!
