An op-ed by climate scientist Camille Parmesan and AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner urges the Texas State Board of Education to reject draft textbooks, unless they are edited to correct climate-change facts.

An educational Web site called Earth Exploration Toolbook (EET) has been tapped to win the prestigious SPORE award by the journal Science. Like a key to the kingdom, EET provides students with all they need to enter the world of real scientific data.

“Using real data allows students to see a real connection between science and the world,” said Tamara Shapiro Ledley, EET’s principal investigator and a former climate researcher. “Too often data sets can only be understood by scientists themselves. That’s where Earth Exploration Toolbook comes in.”
