The latest news, stories, and ideas from ACE and our students.
On Thursday, the US became one of three countries to reject the Paris Climate Agreement. The other two are Syria, a failed state whose collapse was partly fueled by climate change, and Nicaragua, who refused to sign in protest that the agreement isn’t strong enough. 194 other countries – the entire rest of the world – are lined up against us. So, where do we go from here?

In March of 2017, I drove to UNC Chapel-Hill for what I heard was a “climate simulation.” I didn’t think much about it until I showed up and had no idea what I was going to do that day.

In March, the Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank, sent a direct mailing to 25,000 science teachers, kindergarten through college, nationwide. The mailing included a booklet titled “Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming” and a DVD. If you’re like me, your alarm bells might already be ringing. Why? Scientists DON’T disagree about global warming. A series of studies has consistently shown that the vast majority of climate scientists - 97% - agree that humans are the main cause of climate change.

A shivering group of high schoolers and adults illuminated these words outside Governor Cuomo’s office on Third Avenue in Manhattan on March 16, 2017. Our focus was sending a clear message to Governor Cuomo: climate change requires immediate action.

At ACE, our work is driven by the belief that young people have a right to know the science of climate change. Historically in our country, there has been little investment in teacher support to bring quality climate science education into the classroom, and for nearly a decade, we’ve focused on filling that gap.
