Two polar bears and a villain named Mister or Missus Carbon walk into a school assembly . . no, this isn’t a setup for a joke . . . it’s a play.
CULLEN: “Cool The Earth is a nonprofit that teaches kids about climate change and solutions to climate change and then we empower kids to go back and start getting their parents engaged in taking climate action.”
That’s Carleen Cullen, executive director of Cool The Earth, which provides climate education to participating schools.
The play, a fable of melting icebergs, educates kindergartners to eighth graders about climate change. Then they head home with “action coupon books,” which include ways their families can reduce carbon pollution – from changing light bulbs to not wasting food.
