Climate Change

Climate change denial in Texas social studies textbooks

The Texas state board of education will adopt new social studies textbooks in November, 2014. The decisions they make will affect Texas classrooms for years to come, and are likely to change how textbooks are written for use in other states as well. In geography and economics classes, some of the textbooks discuss climate change in ways that are simply false, or even promote outright climate change denial.

Stop climate change denial in West Virginia standards

West Virginia state board of education members have added climate change denial to the state's science standards, overriding the scientists, educators, and state education leaders who drafted Next Generation Science Standards.

Tell your senators: Support climate change education

Will the Senate support scientifically sound climate science education? Or will it disseminate climate change denial material to the public schools? Contact your senators and ask them to support Markey's amendments (SA 2175 and SA 2176) and oppose Wicker's amendment (SA 2144) to the ESEA reauthorization bill. Then sign up below to get updates and action alerts about science education.
