Record-setting heat waves, flooding, hurricanes, and typhoons. Global warming is touching all of us, and we know the impacts will become increasingly more destructive.
Our future depends on the actions of young people -- but it's crucial that they have access to an education that includes climate science. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) will do just that by including climate science in the K-12 science curriculum.
Unfortunately, climate deniers and right wing groups like ALEC, which is pushing legislation to block climate science education in several states, are bent on blocking our children's access to a climate science education.
This war on science and our children's future must stop.
