Research shows that most adults in the US get a failing grade when it comes to basic climate and energy literacy. The CLEAN project (http://cleanet.org ) is one of many emerging efforts to help address confusion, misconceptions and cognitive gaps around climate science and energy topics. A national campaign to mainstream climate and energy literacy and address holes, using the Six Americas research on climate knowledge from Yale and George Mason Universities and the energy literacy research from Clarkson University will help prepare the nation for climate change and energy challenges that are well underway.
