Franklin Institute Rewarded Grant To Educate About Climate Change, Which Is A Thing That Some People Don’t Think Exists
Climate Change, often referred to as “Global Warming,” is a thing that exists. Just look at this shit. However a lot of people out there don’t think it does (not us). But even of those who do, some don’t fully understand it (us). This should help: According to Philly.com, “The National Science Foundation announced … that it is awarding the Franklin Institute more than $5 million to educate Philadelphians and other urbanites about climate change. Franklin Institute will be sharing the money with partners in New York, Pittsburgh and Washington DC.” According to the article, the education will include both K-12 classroom programs as well as programs aimed at adult residents. The article continues:
The plan is to educate people on the ways urban residents can adapt to climate change, and how we can mitigate its effects. The focus, he said, will be on things urban people deal with every day – our food, water systems, transportation and energy. “We’re trying to get at an understanding of how climate works and the underlying science of climate change,” he said, “so we can do something about it.”
This is great and all, but what if the whole warming thing is all a dream and the world is really getting COLDER? Then what do we do?
