As you click around the Earth on the site, you can select a city and see predictions. The site asks if you agree or disagree with the prediction, and you can also comment about the prediction.

This site would be a great jump off point for creative writing classes, technology classes, math, and others, to bring discussion of a particular prediction into the classroom. The students can discuss the prediction and use it as a basis for projects.
