Teaching the Truth About Climate Change

Misinformation about climate change is distressingly common in the United States.  A 2014 Yale study found that 35 % of Americans believe that global warming is caused mostly by natural phenomena rather than human activity, and 34 % think there is a lot of disagreement among scientists about whether global warming is even happening. (In fact, an overwhelming majority of scientists agree that climate change is here and that it is caused by humans.) One way to stop the spread of this misinformation is to teach children about climate change.
