Support sensemaking about climate science


Human activities have unequivocally warmed our world at an unprecedented rate. We are already experiencing the effects of climate change (IPCC, 2021). Yet, only about one in five Americans (22%) understands that there is a strong level of consensus among scientists that human-caused global warming is occurring (Leiserowitz et al., 2019). The decades of scientific evidence that indicate climate change is real and happening at an alarming rate must be integrated into learning opportunities across the curriculum.
