1. Imagine yourself living this week in, consecutively: (a) Hammerfest (Norway); (b) Moscow (Russia); (c) Galway (Ireland); (d) Tokyo (Japan); (e) Baghdad (Iraq); (f) Singapore; (g) Santiago (Chile); (h) Alice Springs (Australia); (i) Dunedin (New Zealand). Briefly outline the significant astronomical and climatological differences you would expect to notice as you went from one place to the next.

2. Is the present population of Planet Earth more or less prepared to face the rigours of "climate change" than the ancient Egyptians might have been?

3. What could you do to prepare yourself for a future without "fossil fuels"?
