Examples of letters to the editor

"When I was growing up, climate science was not taught. The problem humanity is facing is not talked about to those of us who are standing in the crossfire. Can you feel our frustration?"

"We believe that every single Maine child should have powerful community-based environmental and outdoor learning experiences."

From teacher

"Teaching during the pandemic has increased the workload for teachers, and place-based climate change lessons will not start soon enough if we encourage only the teachers without other obligations to seek learning on their own time."

"With understanding comes the increased likelihood of solutions – so we owe good climate education to our youth!"
