So you slept through science class, part 3–Climate Change!

You keep hearing about climate change, but you don’t know what to think.  All these “hundred year storms” – what’s the cause?  Is climate change actually happening?  Is it man-made or naturally-caused?  Are the estimates correct?

Well, you know my answer to those questions, but maybe you’d like to dive into the science.  Here’s your chance to take a short course on the science of climate change.  The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS) have produced a series of courses on climate change.  The first course is longer and gives you a great overview of the entire issue.  After that, you can view 3 different, 15-minute modules on climate change and sea level rise, climate change and extreme weather, and climate change and regional impacts.  These courses are very thorough!  Go to EarthGauge for more information.

Greenmomsters, you owe it to your kids to get up-to-speed on this scientific information.  Learn the science; spring into action!

  1. Great ideas and important suggestions. Thank you!! As climate change realities and extreme weather events become our life and our future, we need to understand why they are happening and what we can do and what policy changes need to be put in place to help secure our future..
