The oil and gas industry wants to play a word-and-picture association game with you. Think of four images: a brightly colored backpack stuffed with pencils, a smiling teacher with a tablet tucked under her arm, a pair of glasses resting on a stack of pastel notebooks, and a gleaming school bus welcoming a young student onboard.

Young adults born in 1997 onward are graduating from college and entering the workforce as the Earth is experiencing some of its hottest years on record. Studies show members of the cohort known as Generation Z are acutely aware of the disastrous effects of the warming planet, and Gen Z’ers are now pursuing career paths centered on addressing the climate crisis more so than older generations, according to a Monday report from The Guardian.

America’s schools are crumbling. Fixing them could save lives — and the planet.

By Levi Pulkkinen

Before the COVID-19 pandemic made airflow a life-or-death issue, ventilation experts rarely tested the air inside U.S. schools. That was probably a mistake, said Kevin Thomas, the business representative for the union representing ventilation workers in the Seattle area.

But how well are Pennsylvania’s public schools faring in this effort? And how much would a revision released this month help?

Infusing climate change and sustainability into the medical school curriculum

By James Bevan and Paul Roderick

The climate emergency is a health emergency. This fact is now indisputable and it is common knowledge that climate change and environmental degradation pose an unprecedented threat to human health. Increasing intensity and frequency of extreme weather events, rising global temperatures and sea levels, pollution, and biodiversity loss contribute to considerable morbidity and mortality. The burden of disease will fall hardest on the most vulnerable people and will widen already existing global health inequalities and gaps in healthcare provision.
