That’s significant in poetry circles, but not as significant as the common cause Nathan, Casey and colleagues have found in a mission to bring spoken word poetry into classrooms across London. To teach fundamental science as it relates to climate change, and to drive home a message that a majority of the British public do not grasp: current warming is entirely attributed to man.
Studies show that the British public understands the reality of climate change and the severity of its implications.

Without understanding man’s dominant role, how can we expect people to do something about it?
