The National Center for Science Education (NCSE)culminated its #ClimateEdNOw campaign on Earth Day 2022. Part of the campaign included short essays by scientists, educators, authors, and science fans "about the critical importance of honest, effective, and immediate climate change education."

Two contributors were from Minnesota: Greg Simons, Science Department Chair at Shattuck-St..Mary's School, Faribault and John Abraham, professor of thermal science at the University of St. Thomas. In addition, U. S. Representative Sean Casten (D - Illinois) contributed a short video (39 s).

The very last but certainly not least commentary is by Buster, the NCSE staff dog and Director of Fun. He provides  "a dog's -eye view of climate change" that remind us of its ever multiplying ripple effects as it reshapes the Earth's landscapes, atmosphere, waters and oceans.
