Obama: Teach Schoolchildren About Climate Change

By    |   Thursday, 28 May 2015 05:59 PM

President Barack Obama suggested Thursday that climate change should be taught in schools as part of the science and social studies curriculums.

Obama made the comments during a Twitter chat, during which he answered 11 questions.


Obama also addressed climate change deniers in another answer, saying "the science is overwhelming."


Later in the session, Obama was asked why he thinks climate change is a national security issue.


Obama conducted the Twitter session at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. He met with leaders there and said climate change will make storms grow stronger, the Washington Times reports.

"We're also focusing on making ourselves more resilient to the impacts of a changing climate that are having significant effects on both the pace and intensity of some of these storms," Obama said.

"The best climate scientists in the world are telling us that extreme weather events like hurricanes are likely to become more powerful. When you combine stronger storms with rising seas, that's a recipe for more devastating floods. Climate change didn't cause Hurricane Sandy, but it might have made it stronger."
