Hi ESIP Folks,
any of you educators, climate or polar scientists, please take a quick look at these questions from a high schooler and give me your thoughts. I received this email and am not a climate scientist (and can't reach my colleague in Alaska). The questions are interesting for us at ESIP to consider but very broad. Any help with crafting answers is greatly appreciated!
