Looking at the rich database of resources of Consumer Classroom, I found the recently added Guide Climate Literacy - Essential Principles of Climate Science.
For Climate Literacy we mean the understanding of our influence on climate and climate influence on us and society.
A climate-literate person:
• Understands the essential principles of Earth's climate system,
• Knows how to assess scientifically credible information about climate,
• Communicates about climate and climate change in a meaningful way
• Make informed and responsible decisions with regard to actions that may affect climate.
The resource was realised by the Global Change Research Program and aims to promote greater climate science literacy by providing an educational framework of principles and concepts, which can serve as discussion starters and launching points for scientific inquiry.
