My son is concerned about....??

"Global warming isn't a prediction. It is happening."
Dear Circ,

My son is interested in climate and weather. He started wondering about it when he started hearing about global warming. Now he really wants to know what's going on, especially with the political decisions being made these days. I don't know what to tell him.

Do you have any thoughts?

Dear Dad,

We can't tell you what to tell your child. That's up to you. We can tell you that in this increasingly complicated world, the only way to make intelligent and responsible decisions, is to have the proper tools to understand the problems, and to have access to the information. We need those tools, and as responsible adults, we need to make sure our kids have those tools. That's part of what our science kits are about. And we do have a kit for weather and climate! It's a place to start.
