In this guest post below, Juanita Constible of The Climate Reality Project shares some pretty stupendous news with us. New national standards for science in K-12 schools include the topic of climate change. Here’s more from Juanita: As a scientist, I know how important it is for our kids to get a top-notch science
climate change education
The News: Yep, conspiracy theory could be a part of your children’s public education soon, unfortunately. As revealed this month in the leak of key Heartland Institute documents, the institute is paying $100,000 a year to David E.

Joe Romm of Climate Progress recently had an interesting post on an email from Environmental Defense Fund President Fred Krupp on “how we begin to rebuild public support for climate action and the political will to pass climate legislation.”
I decided to chime in after reading the post with my own 2 cents. Thought I’d share that here.
