Climate Change Teaching for Our Children's Futures
On FRIDAY, MARCH 4, a bill to require the teaching of climate change will be on the agenda for a Public Hearing in the Education Committee. The hearing begins at 11 a.m.
This bill would ensure that all our children -- regardless of the wealth and resources of their school district -- would be taught the truth about human behavior and climate change. Environmental justice demands that all students be equipped with knowledge to position them for green new jobs and so they can be part of the solution to a problem previous generations created.
Please consider adding your voice to those who care about our children's futures. Too often, Public Hearings are dominated by lobbyists with an anti-environmental agenda. We need concerned citizens like you to speak up.
Please forward this notice to your circle of people who care -- most especially young people, the majority of whom consider climate change the greatest threat to their very existence.
