Comments on: Science Wednesday: Making Climate Change the Next “Hot” Topic http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/08/the-next-hot-topic/ The EPA Blog Mon, 14 Dec 2015 16:24:21 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Johnny R. http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/08/the-next-hot-topic/#comment-15066 Fri, 14 Aug 2009 15:07:38 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=1042#comment-15066 It’s hard to sell climate change unless you admit that it’s only a symptom of the ecocidal consequences to humanity’s greed for more of everything forever, and that requires a basic change of behavior, not merely a few green patches here and there. Tell the students that a growing economy on a shrinking planet has no future.

I work with a state funded program to provide replacement water supplies to individuals affected by drinking water contamination. The teacher has asked me to talk to her students about drinking water issues in their area and how the state agency is addressing them. She brings me in after they have completed a science model where they investigate groundwater contamination in a fictional community. Sharing with them the work I do within their neighborhoods brings their classroom lessons to life.
