We need climate literacy to be taught in the world wide.
Carbon Dioxide’s ability to absorb and emit infrared radiation has been known for over 150 years and it’s potential impact from human activities has been studied for over 100 years. Why is it not common knowledge today?
With so much scientific research being done today and the countless publications of the past making the state of human impacts on Earth without reasonable doubt why is it the public still climate illiterate?
We would argue that it is because many of the powerful prefer ignorant of informed people. Besides, if the public by and large does not even understand the basics how could they challenge the status quo?
If there is a anything to be taught in the educational fields of humanity it is that we need broad consensus of fact based teaching if people are expected to become educated on the most pressing issues of our time.
