The collection supports teachers who wish to integrate environmental education into existing Life and Earth Science curricula. For resources that directly explain the science behind climate change see the Clue into Climate and Climate Literacy collections. Impacts from climate change are happening now. These impacts extend well beyond an increase in temperature, affecting ecosystems and communities in the United States and around the world. Things that we depend upon and value — water, energy, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems, and human health — are experiencing the effects of a changing climate.
