The fight for climate science education has come to New Jersey. The New Jersey State Board of Education is scheduled to vote on NGSS during its meeting on July 9. According to Michael Heinz, the science coordinator for the NJ Department of Education, the only possible obstacle to adopting NGSS is clear: "External political influence that has an issue with human-induced climate change or evolution."
We must keep that from happening. With superstorms, flooding, sea-level rise, and other climate change impacts intensifying, our children must have the tools to understand, analyze, and formulate solutions to deal with a rapidly changing climate.
Tell the New Jersey Board of Education to adopt climate science education standards!
