Climate Change Education Act
This bill declares that the evidence for human-induced climate change is overwhelming and undeniable.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) must establish a Climate Change Education Program to:
- broaden the understanding of human-induced climate change, possible consequences, and potential solutions;
- apply the latest scientific and technological discoveries to provide learning opportunities to people of all ages;
- conduct a national information campaign to help people understand and promote implementation of new technologies, programs, and incentives related to energy conservation, renewable energy, and greenhouse gas reduction; and
- inform the public of impacts to human health and safety as a result of climate change.
NOAA must establish a grant program for climate change education. This grant program must be included in the climate change program.
