Bhattacharya, D., C.T. Forbes, M.A. Chandler, K. Carroll Steward, and A.M. Sutter, 2018: Climate literacy: Insights from research on K-16 climate education. Green Sch. Catal. Q., 5, no. 4, 26-37.

The past few decades have witnessed growth in sustained formal and informal education efforts designed to promote understanding about the Earth's climate and changing dynamics. This increased interest in climate literacy, outreach, education, and research comes at a critical time. Public opinion regarding climate change does not mirror the overwhelming consensus in the scientific community that human activities are having an impact on our planet's climate. As evidence of our changing climate continues to grow, the scientific community has begun to provide a better understanding of how current and future climate change will impact our society and the environment. At the same time, there is a growing emphasis on promoting climate literacy through education and outreach initiatives in a variety of formal and informal settings. The objective of these efforts is to cultivate climate-literate individuals who are capable of "understanding, communicating and making informed decisions about weather, climate, its functions and impacts."
