CLEAN Videos on Climate Change, Extreme Weather, and Wildfire
These two videos (one about the link between climate change and extreme weather events; the second about the link between climate change and wildfires) have been spotlighted by the CLEAN network as useful resources for educators. All CLEAN resources have been vetted by climate scientists and educators. CLEAN supports teaching and learning about climate and energy with 600+ free peer-reviewed, scientifically accurate, and classroom-ready resources.
