Find kid-friendly games, movie on 'Cool the Climate' site
OJAI, Calif. (PRNewswire) -- Cool the Climate! is an animal gang's incredibly fun yet eye-opening adventure as they witness the causes and effects of our climate emergency – and then act to reverse it.
Starring the It's A Jungle Out There! cast which made its name with National Geographic Kids and Comics Uniting Nations, Cool The Climate! has the unique ability to entertain, educate, and inspire in the face of what's perhaps the greatest existential threat of our time: see the trailer here.
Inspired by fans who requested a cartoon telling the complete climate crisis story, Cool The Climate! includes a half-hour animated movie, an eBook for homeschoolers and teachers with Next Gen Science Standard lesson plans and activities, and the website cooltheclimate.com which features:
online games for children that save sq. ft. of jungle through Conservation International
a kid-friendly carbon calculator
a carbon negative website (so each visit benefits the climate)
trees planted with every purchase through Eden Restoration Projects
The big reason WHY: our World currently has 412 to 415 parts per million of atmospheric carbon, the heat-trapping gas which causes numerous and dangerous wildfires, heatwaves, and environmental disasters.
According to climate scientists such as James Hansen, the safe level of atmospheric carbon is 350 ppm.
Cooltheclimate.com's goal is to provide kids, teachers, and families with on-going solutions to help reverse the rising ppm of carbon for the benefit of people, animals, and future generations.
