Dear ISCFC teachers-

We now have our first April 2012 pin on the world map representing the student footprints and statistics from Ian Heathcote’s Environmental Science class at Escuela Campo Alegre in Caracas, Venezuela!

Felicitaciones!

    The map now has our first Bolivian school: Viviana Mendoza's AP Environmental Science students from the Calvert American Cooperative School in La Paz, Bolivia.

    Also, today we have an updated pin from a previous participating school: Bob McCormick's Environmental Science students have increased our data for the Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, CA, USA.

    Great to have you all participating!
  • Jason Hodin Jason Hodin April 27, 2012
    Today, the map is updated with two pins: previous ISCFC participants Doris Furlan (Secondary school Srečko Kosovel Sežana in Sežana Slovenia) and Dubravka Cokrlic (Gymnasium Pozega in Pozega Croatia) now have updated pins (additional data, new color) for their English language students.

    A warm welcome back to Doris & Dubravka, and we are happy to meet your new students!

Hi, Everybody:
My name is Ann Smart. I teach Environmental Science in New Orleans, LA, USA, and am VERY NEW to this program. I just heard about it last week and got registered as soon as I heard about it. My students will begin calculating their footprints on Monday. I think they will be in for a very rude awakening. They think they are doing well if they place a piece of paper into the recycle box in the classroom. I can’t wait for them to do the calculations and to see what students in other countries are doing for the Earth. Thanks for this program

    Dear Ann, welcome to the ISCFC!

    New Orleans is unfortunately becoming an epicenter of sorts for environmental crises of late; it will be interesting to see your students perspectives on these issues.

Understanding the denying brain:

the climate denial community, which includes fossil fuel companies, most Republican politicians and nearly all conservative corporate media outlets, make up their own facts. They can decide that global warming isn’t real or isn’t human-caused or isn’t a big deal and that climate scientists are liars and cheats. They can decide anything they want and report it as fact. And their naive, uninformed and trusting public will believe it.

Interesting read here http://blogs.redding.com/dcraig/archives/2012/04/understanding-t.html

But does anyone satirize the issue as humorously as Bill Maher?

    I completely agree with your observation of how climate change is handled in this country. Since our country is mainly influenced by conservative Republicans with major denial issues regarding climate change, it is up to us as indiviuals to conciously make an effort to be mindful of our energy consumption. I feel that our government has taken it upon them to decide for the whole country that we as humans aren't a cause of climate change, but we all know this is false.

Discussions Discussion China: Traditions and Transformations
Steve Durgan, April 13, 2012

Citizen journalism triumphs at China environmental press awards:

When Liu Futang left the confines of Chinese government service and opened his first microblog last April, the retired forestry official could not have imagined that a year later, he would be celebrated as a shining light of citizen journalism.

Liu stirred up an online fury last year when he revealed that developers had destroyed one of the world’s last groves of water coconut trees to make space for a yacht marina.

The degradation is terrible,” said Liu. “The local media hasn’t written a single word, but I’ve posted 40 articles that have been followed up by newspapers and TV from across the country.”

The citizen journalist prize is a new category in the awards, which are jointly organised by the Guardian, chinadialogue and Sina, the leading Chinese web portal.
