Climate Literacy

Climate Science Literacy is an understanding of the fundamental relationship between human influence on climate and the role climate plays in human health. A climate-literate person knows how climate science informs decisions that can improve our quality of life. They have a basic understanding of the natural and human-caused factors that affect the climate system. They recognize how climate observations and records contribute to scientific knowledge about climate. They have the ability to assess the validity of scientific arguments about climate and to use that information to support their decisions.

Our 2016 climate change project, Down on the Farm!, provides curriculum lessons and resources about compassion for animals and how local farms and organizations can have a positive impact on the livelihood of animals, local economy, human health and the environment.
