Dear Rethinking Schools friends,
Did you see that the Koch brothers-supported Heartland Institute is sending a climate denial textbook to every science teacher in the country? As the Moms Clean Air Force writes, "Every science teacher across America will receive a 'free' copy of a book of climate lies."
The climate crisis is threatening life on Earth, and the fossil fuel industry is so drunk with greed that they continue to poison the curriculum around climate change.
Let's fight back.
We don't have the Koch brothers' money, but we do have what we think is the best resource for teaching the climate crisis: A People's Curriculum for the Earth: Teaching Climate Change and the Environmental Crisis.
And with your help, we can offer free copies of the book to teachers in six states where fossil fuel industry lawmakers are advancing legislation supporting climate denial in the schools: Texas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Alabama, Florida, and Idaho.
Teachers desperately need resources to teach the truth about climate change and to counter the Heartland Institute's materials that are flooding into schools.
Please donate so that we can send a copy of A People's Curriculum for the Earth to every teacher who requests one in the states most threatened by lies spread by the fossil fuel industry.
As Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything, says, "A People's Curriculum for the Earth is an educator's toolkit for our times." Help us send it where it's needed most.
