Suppose that the earth’s atmosphere continues to warm, beyond the levels that we know are already inevitable. Suppose that the arctic permafrost melts, releasing millions of tons of methane, which is about thirty times more effective at warming than is carbon dioxide, as well as much CO2 as is already in the atmosphere. Within a few years, the mean temperature rises by five degrees Celsius or more, sea levels rise, crops fail and millions starve.
JCE ChemEd Xchange provides a place for sharing information and opinions. Currently, articles, blogs and reading lists from ChemEd X contributors are listed below. We plan to include other items that the community wishes to share through their contributions to ChemEd X.
The NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS are now available for review until June 1st. Science educators at all levels are encouraged to review the document and complete the associated survey.
JCE Online offered subscription-based access to a collectiion of titles named JCE Web Software. You can find the JCE Web Software collection at the LEARN menu item in the site menu bar. Access to the titles in the collection is still restricted to JCE Web Software subscribers.

Welcome to the Chemical Education Xchange (ChemEd X)! We hope to strengthen the community of chemistry educators by providing learning resources and forums for discussion and collaboration right here at this site. Take a look, and join in.
As JCE Online is rebooted into the ChemEd Xchange, finding the original JCE Online content becomes problematic. This article attempts to provide information about where you might find JCE Online content, either within the ChemEd Xchange, or elsewhere.
Chemistry Comes Alive! is JCE's outstanding collection of chemistry videos and images. This collection of 1,800 videos and thousands of images presents the chemistry as the star of the show. Migrating all of this great content into JCE Chemical Education Exchange is one of our first priorities. Several other subscriber-only titles make use of the imagery from the collection.
Rebooting JCE Online into a new, interactive web CMS platform is a large undertaking. JCE Online has had a fairly long history, several contributors, and contains a lot of content. The content is typically static HTML and was created using numerous tools and methods. Some content is available only to subscribers.
