"Climate, soil, air, water, energy resources, food, fisheries, and biodiversity are all elements of the global commons, and all have prospects that range from uncertain to perilous." - Editorial, Science
"The lack of scientific literacy is helping humans cause a dangerous disruption of the thermal stability of the planet. Students do not understand the threats to our ecosystems that we all depend on for life. Each educator has a unique and important opportunity to help our students understand the need to use knowledge to care for our global commons and help create a sustainable future."
