Seattle Times letters to the editor

Next Generation Science in schools

Invest in clean energy first

How can we expect students to get excited about learning sciences when half our politicians deny the truth of the most significant scientific finding of all time? [“Let’s dazzle them with science,” Opinion, June 11.]

We need to move investments into production of clean-energy technology like solar, wind, geothermal and efficiency, because investing in more oil, coal and natural gas is dangerously overheating our world.

In a classroom discussion on global warming, one girl asked me, “If 98 percent of scientists who study climate all say the same thing, why aren’t people do something about it?”
