U.S. Satellite Presents its Programming at the United Nations

New York, NY, September 7, 2007—In a session entitled: Small Steps - Big Effect: What Families and Children Can Do to Help Reverse Global Warming, Glen Schuster and Meghan Marrero presented at the 60th annual U.N. DPI/NGO conference empowering the audience to understand the real issues in the actions against climate change and to affect change in local communities.

Schuster, U.S. Satellite's Founder, a meteorologist and scientist educator, laid out the scale and misconceptions of the carbon problem while addressing popular ad campaigns working to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Marrero, a Doctoral Student at Teachers College/Columbia University, introduced U.S. Satellite's Earth Systems Unit from NASA-sponsored Project 3D-VIEW. In the Unit, students learn how Earth's natural cycles interact, how energy flows in the Earth system, and how humans affect the Earth system. The curriculum-based unit allows students to build their own web sites and to design a sustainable school, expanding the reach of today's youth on this important topic.
