Nature is a miracle we depend upon.

I have over 20 years experience in natural resource management. As a professional forester, I worked in Canada, Ireland, CSIRO, Conservation Commission of the Northern Territory and Natural Resources Conservation League. I was a Parks Manager at Bayside City Council in suburban Melbourne. After spending 2 years as a Financial Planner advising clients on agricultural investments post-GFC, I entered the not-for-profit sector at Conservation Volunteers Australia.

An online petition for climate change to be given more prominence on the curriculum has attracted more than 50,000 signatures.

The petition was launched by four school girls from Oxford, who say there is growing demand for pupils to be taught more about the impact and solutions to tackling climate change.

The government says the subject is already covered in science and geography.

Global warming is and always has been a HOAX. No need to"teach" hoaxes in school.

I don't even know why this is a question. It's fact based science, so of course it should be taught!

It's been about 15 years since I did my GCSEs, and we did about climate change, renewable energy, green house gasses, the lot?... We did it in geography and science! Did they just stop teaching it?

it’s been longer for me since I left school. My kids aren’t being taught recycling or environmental importance as much as I was. And weirdly my generation are ignoring what we were taught mostly.

Haha, no. Schools shouldn’t teach about Santa clause or evolution either. Leave the curriculum for facts. Leave the fiction for their hobbies.

Climate change/global change has been around for thousands of years...........check history figures and facts before gobbing on about something, you know nothing about, please!

Absolutely. These grade school children will have to deal with the global horror that the present and past generations have left them

Any 'basic science' textbook not talking about climate change in at least a chapter shouldn't be allowed in classrooms in the first place. Science doesn't care about your opinion when it comes to fact. 'that's nice, the sun is still hot, Susan, even if you're constantly cold even on sunny days.
