Emmy-Winning Journalist Katie Worth shares perspectives on her climate miseducation of US Students and the fear and fury this has created for today’s youth.
NEW YORK, Sept. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — There are over 60 million American students learning mixed or false messages about the climate problem that will dictate their future. In the new Net Zero show – Net Zero Speaks with Katie Worth – Climate Activist Sofia Lana interviews Emmy-winning journalist Katie Worth to understand this issue and learn about the education change leaders who are trying to solve it.
Worth’s new book, Miseducation: How Climate Change is Taught in America, exposes how big money and entrenched ideology have led to the intentional miseducation of American children. In the show Lana and Worth discuss the strategies and solutions needed to get the US Climate Change curriculum back on track.
“When two different people are telling you two different things about Climate Change, it’s hard to navigate,” says Worth. “The hopelessness is not unwarranted, it’s scary!” Worth believes schools and educators must consider an interdisciplinary approach to climate change education. “Climate is such a sprawling topic that it can fit into all sorts of disciplines,” she notes. For students worried about the health of their future planet, Worth recommends activism. “I truly believe figuring out some action you can take, some movement you can be behind is a way through some of the dread and fury,” she tells Lana.
