Podcast on How Climate Change Is Taught in America
Award-winning journalist Katie Worth wanted to know what children learn about climate change in America. As part of her research, she visited several states, talked to teachers, scoured textbooks, and spoke to students and their families. It turns out climate change education is just as contentious in the classroom as it is in politics.
In this episode of Harvard EdCast, Worth discusses the points of friction happening between teachers—sometimes within the same school—and how students are often unable to connect environmental disasters in their own communities with climate change. A transcript of the podcast appears on Harvard Graduate School of Education’s EdCast webpage.
Conservation and protection of wildlife species and their habitats are at the core of the Wildlife.net mission.

Carnegie Institution for Science has launched a new suite of websites that were designed to be as creative as their researchers and to showcase the scale of their expertise, spanning from genomes to ecosystems and from planets to the cosmos.
