Particles and Climate Change
Climate Science: More Than Just A Weather Report
As you’ve seen in this issue of Celebrating Chemistry, climate change is more complicated than just the weather, and many different things contribute to it. A lot of people talk about CO2 and climate change — but CO2 isn’t the only cause of the problem. Another piece of the puzzle is particulate matter, also known as aerosols.
Celebrating Chemistry helps children ages 9-12 (Grades 4-6) develop an interest in chemistry as they learn about its relevance to their lives, connection to what they are learning in school, and role in the issues they care about.
