Haas joins NCSE board

NCSE is pleased to announce the addition of Michael Haas, a businessman, entrepreneur, and climate activist, to its board of directors. "In the fight with climate change, knowledge is power," Haas explained. "But too many students are not learning what they need to know about climate change and the solutions. That's why I'm pleased to join NCSE's board of directors and to support its diverse efforts to defend the integrity of science education."

Climate Smart & Energy Wise

NCSE is pleased to announce the publication of Climate Smart & Energy Wise (Corwin Press, 2014), written by NCSE's Mark McCaffrey. In their foreword, Eugenie C. Scott and Jay Labov write, "Climate Smart & Energy Wise provides a roadmap to teachers to assist them in acquiring the background and resources to bring climate and energy education into their classrooms ... It provides a wealth of information to help teachers find resources, including the very useful Climate Literacy and Energy Literacy frameworks, developed by scientists and master teachers. This book is packed with suggestions for where a teacher can find more information and classroom guidance for the teaching of global climate change."
