ALBANY, N.Y. (Feb. 28, 2019) -- For the last installment of a three-part series on climate change, we feature Brett Levy, an assistant professor of educational theory and practice in UAlbany's School of Education, and Casey Meehan, the sustainability coordinator for Western Technical College in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Brett and Casey have researched how textbooks frame the issue of climate change, and the extent to which they prepare today's youth for civic participation.


We launched the mini-series with Brian Greenhill of Rockefeller College with insight on how policy makers can more persuasively approach the issue. For Part 2, Mathias Vuille from the department of atmospheric and environmental sciences provided a case study on Peru's retreating Quelccaya Ice Cap.
