The urgency to address climate change is undeniable, however, communicating about climate change can often lead to more questions than answers (for both the teacher and the student). This program is designed to unravel the complexities of climate change, guiding the user through its causes, consequences, and potential futures. Explore three possible climate scenarios, which offer different insights that empower individuals to make informed decisions.
Within these scenarios, we examine the potential of solar energy and showcase a resilient community for sustainable living. Using a figure from the Fifth National Climate Assessment report, we show a map of mitigation efforts in the U.S., emphasizing where state and city efforts are being prioritized, and where extra efforts may be needed.
The inclusion of captivating photographs, sourced through NOAA Environmental Literacy Program grants, underscores the tangible impact communities can achieve. We hope this program sparks meaningful conversations about actions that can be taken within your community. Together, let us embark on the journey towards a more sustainable and resilient future.
