Climate Lesson Update: April 2013
"Everything is Okay. Humanity, Working Together, Solved Climate Change."
That's what the newspaper should have read this April when Dr. James Hansen announced his retirement. It would be written about our greatest success story as a civilization, and the last paragraph would be a quiet "thank you" to Dr. Hansen for making it all possible. Yes, if James Hansen had HIS way, that's exactly it: his life's work fulfilled.Tags: education climatelessons nextgenerationsciencestandards climatelessonupdate Next Generation Science Standards Dr James Hanson1 comment Read 994 times Read more...
