A Curriculum Guide to Confronting Climate Change in California

Today's students need to know about climate change-- what it is, why it is occurring, how it will impact them, and what can be done about it. Heat-trapping gas emissions from power plants, vehicles, and clearing forests are contributing to rising global temperatures and a changing climate. Without a reduction in these emissions, the Earth's surface temperature is predicted to rise 2.5 to 10.4 F between 1990 and 2100 during the lifetime of today's students. Such an increase is likely to have dramatic impacts upon human society. It will be up to today's students to make many of the crucial decisions on how human society will meet the climate change challenge. It is our responsibility to ensure that future generations are prepared.
