Looking for climate change resources? There are two sites still available on US government websites, Climate.gov and CLEANet.org. Collectively, they have expanded to more than 700 entries and drawn more than 68,000 page views in May, a more than 50 percent increase from the year before. And the lessons delivered by the two sites — about the threat posed by a planet warmed by human actions — extends well beyond that core audience. That’s because both sites are aimed at teachers, who say they use the taxpayer-supported websites to create lessons on everything from increasing CO2 levels to threatened biodiversity to the potential of solar power.
TERC is proud to have been there at the beginning of the CLEAN Network. Dr. Tamara S. Ledley, while at TERC, was a co-founder of the CLEAN Network leading it from 2008-2016, and was the principle investigator for the development of the CLEAN Collection. The CLEAN Collection was syndicated to NOAA's Climate.gov portal in 2012, and is now also syndicated to the National Science Teachers Association's (NSTA) Learning Center, reaching teachers across the U.S. and around the world.
