2.2 Climate change in a globalised world As you will recall from Reading 1A, the people of Tuvalu are now arguing that larger and more affluent nations should take responsibility for the climatic changes threatening their country. As Paani Laupepa from the Tuvalu environment ministry put it: ‘We are on the front line … through no fault of our own. The industrialised countries caused the problem, but we are suffering the consequences’ (Lynas, 2003). Before we look more closely at this charge, and the scientific evidence that is

Speaker(s): Navi Pillay | In recent years, the world has witnessed a number of incidents involving hate speech at times with wide-ranging and global repercussions.

This video explains how a central angle is an angle where the vertex is on the center of the circle and the endpoints are on the circle. The endpoints on the circle are also the endpoints for the angle's intercepted arc. The angle measure of the central angle is congruent to the measure of the intercepted arc which is an important fact when finding missing arcs or central angles. (2:12)
This video describes how inscribed angles are angles whose vertices are on a circle and that intersect an arc on the circle. The measure of an inscribed angle is half of the measure of the intercepted arc and half the measure of the central angle intersecting the same arc. Inscribed angles that intercept the same arc are congruent. (1:44)
