Read the full story at

As ALEC and Heartland race to push legislation in the states that mandates students be versed in “climate change denial,” they’ve got a new foe to work against.

National science standards for schools across the US are about to be released which integrate teaching climate change into public school curriculums.

Coordinated by the non-profit Achieve, these “Next Generation Science Standards” have been developed by 26 states, the National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Starting in elementary school, students would learn the evidence behind human-caused climate change, and it would be incorporated into every kind of science class through high school.
