NEW YORK – Climate change affects us all, but we still are not acting as quickly as we should to address its causes, mitigate the damage, and adapt to its effects.According to a recent Pew study, seven out of 10 Americans classified as political independents were not very concerned that climate change would hurt them. The Yale study concluded that, "educational attainment tends to be the single strongest predictor of public awareness of climate change". By investing in quality education, we can set the next generation on the right path to addressing this global problem.Education and climate action work together in three ways. Knowing the measures available to address climate change can open up vast opportunities for economic growth.In the U.S., as of 2014, there were more jobs that depended on solar energy than on coal mining.Still, many people insist that implementing measures to mitigate the effects of climate change is too costly to our current way of life.
