Description

The use of fossil fuels to supply our energy is causing our climate to change. In the context of this global concern, we re-examine how to introduce the concept of energy to our students in this special issue of School Science Review. In December 2015, world leaders will meet in Paris to agree on how the world will respond to climate change. We have until then to build the public pressure and political support necessary for them to agree to a strong deal.
