Using our K-12 curriculum to drive global climatic and environmental stability

Progress toward global climatic stability requires reforms in public policy, classroom instruction and human endeavor. It requires management of environmental and industrial activities, holding down carbon emission levels in both the industrial and chemical complexes, making people accountable for their carbon footprint, helping people experience change in life activities that support growth of clean energy and teaching all these knowledge to our young ones. Achieving climatic stability requires solutions for greenhouse gas emissions and adoption of regional and national climatic initiative to help achieve substantial change in the current environmental status. To advance public support to help achieve collective habits in automobile driving, coal driven energy generation and other forms of pollution may require teaching, classroom teaching for all, especially the new generation of Americans who will take the mantle of leadership in the coming century.

To attain high-quality environment, critical aspects of human pollution activities must now be taught, new initiatives in developing and administering responsive program(s) affected through regulations and laws about the environment and pollution, and a system of instruction to accomplish an understanding of this urgent problem, provided. Teaching children positive habits for maintaining clean air and water can create the foundation for achieving environmental stability. Providing environmental conservation education for all children in our K-12 system would now be critical to America’s environmental future. Education has always been the foundation for achieving human behavioral modification, providing environmental education opportunity to millions of American children in the K-12 curriculum could help build a foundation for a much more stable climate and environment. Our nation’s economic competitiveness will depend on our ability to control the pace of environmental pollution by human and animal activities. Teaching our children about best practices in environmental management may turn out to be the best decision by our political leaders, schools and teachers in making America much more economically competitive in the coming decade. Introducing new K-12 curriculum with environmental education components and attracting best minds to impart environmental knowledge to the next generation of Americans will ensure success in our ability to achieve climatic stability in Washington State and America.
