97% of scientists agree that climate change is real and it is human influenced, yet 72% of media outlets are reporting on it in a skeptical manner. They are acting as if there are two side to the story and trying to play up a “everyone has a say” argument. This simply isn’t true when it comes to the science of climate change.
I got an email from Allison over at LearnStuff in regards to their gorgeous infographic about Climate Change and I just had to share it. We need to be teaching future generations how to interpret scientific evidence and learn to be very cautious about what the media is reporting. These are very real problems that they will be forced to solve and by ignoring it now, we aren’t helping them.
After the infographic I have included some educational resources to help learn and teach about climate change. Without further introduction. Here’s the beautifully designed infograph from LearnStuff: (Removed – Sadly, this site no longer exists.)
A great page put together to help teach climate change to students and the impacts of it, including lesson plans and multimedia presentations.
