Overview

Science reveals that Earth’s climate is changing dramatically due to human actions. We are already seeing devastating impacts of climate change, such as the melting of polar ice, which is happening faster than even the most dire predictions. Yet, efforts to educate people about climate change and mobilize actions to mitigate it have not been too successful. Despite strong scientific consensus, some people do not believe climate change is happening or if they do, they feel disempowered to make a difference. Why? Climate Change Education: A Primer for Zoos and Aquariums by the Climate Literacy Zoo Education Network, reveals what some of the best minds know about climate change science, electronic media, psychology, learning sciences, communication, and interpretation. The book explores the links between these fields and provides valuable insights to everyone, especially zoos and aquariums, but also for museums and similar cultural institutions.

    Global warming scare tactics

    Liberal propaganda to scare children. Dont bother unless you fall for this dribble, and you want your children brain washed.

    A great resource because it combines the science of climate change along with the science of how people learn, feel, respond. It deals with the obstacles people face to changing behavior and provides practical advice and examples for educators (parents, teachers, museum and zoo guides, etc.) to inspire others to care about climate change and do something to help.
