S & N, thanks, my friend. The younger generation will be even more affected and they need to know how to handle it NOW.

Noted and signed. Surely, at least the schools could call it "climate change theory", thus allowing the students to learn and decide for themselves. Remember when Evolution was The Theory of Evolution?

Climate change is here--stocking one's head in the sand won't make it go away! Are you listening, Congress? Do you hear, so-called educators?

Signed. I'm congratulating these parents for being part of the 21st century and caring about what their children will be learning. No, we can't have our heads buried in the sand any longer. This should be a program in every school around the globe.

I'm told Australian schools spend a lot of time teaching about climate change. But do the kids see it as relating to their behaviour? I don't see it.

Signed and noted. I own a home near a high school (Melbourne, Australia). Kids are not educated these days, schools are failing, our front lawn is a garbage dump. Mc. Donald, Kentucky, Coke bottles, Glad wrap, juice containers, whole sandwich packs, fruit etc.
I have to clean it. But I bought a 2 foot gripper now since I have a condom problem behind the bushes, mind you, it is a Catholic boys school.
The parents are no better, that is why we have the problem in our street. They block every driveway around 15 hours and will not budge when a resident comes home at that time. They expect us to wait.
No wonder kids turn to s...

I would say that understanding climate change, what causes it and how to lessen it is absolutely vital to be taught...
