Climate of Confusion: How Climate Change Denial is Still Impacting Classrooms
We hear in the news about controversies around teaching climate change across the country. What are these controversies about? Who is leading the charge against teaching climate change? What are students actually learning? In this talk, Minda Berbeco from the National Center for Science Education, will talk about the challenges teachers face across the nation covering this topic: from concerns about depressing or disillusioning students, to attempts by school boards to actually keep the information out of public schools. We'll talk about what is being done to ensure the next generation knows about climate change and how it will effect them for years to come.
Afterwards we will go to dinner at King Dong at 2429 Shattuck Ave at Haste.
