If the measures aimed at combating climate change are to be genuinely effective, then it is necessary to equip as many people as possible with information about the phenomenon of climate change. And one way to ensure that as many people as possible are conversant with the phenomenon of climate change is by having it (climate change) taught as a subject in elementary schools. This way, we can be sure that the next generation adults – made up of the kids who are currently in elementary school – will be genuinely conversant with matters to do with climate change.
If we are to get climate change taught as a subject in elementary schools, it will probably be necessary to convince the people who are in charge of elementary school curriculums that this is a good move. This is not likely to be easy, as some of these individuals actually belong to the school of thought that is skeptical about the whole concept of climate change. There are also those who are not skeptical about climate change, but who nonetheless feel that the kids should first of all be given time to learn the basic sciences, before they can be introduced to more complex and controversial subjects like that of climate change.
If we are to be successful in teaching climate change as a subject in elementary schools, it will be absolutely necessary to figure out ways of simplifying the subject, so that the kids can understand it. At the moment, matters to do with climate change tend to be so complex that even reasonably well educated adults have problems understanding them. Yet at its core, the subject of climate change need not be that complicated.
Once the decision has been made for climate change to start being taught as a subject in elementary school, it will probably be necessary to come up with the books to be used for the purpose. Once the first prototypes of such books have been created, they can be mailed to school heads for review. The posting/shipping of such books can be done using a company like UPS – whose employees online portal is accessible at Upsers.com. After the books are dispatched via UPS, the next step would be that of undertaking tracking (using the UPS tracking number) at the main UPS website — not the Uspers website, right up to the point where the books are eventually delivered to the mailboxes of the respective schools. You get the impression that it is a long-drawn process, but in actual fact, it is quite simple.
