"National PTA recognizes the scientific consensus surrounding climate change and the impact of human activities. Children represent a particularly vulnerable group already suffering disproportionately from both direct and indirect adverse health effects of anthropogenic global warming"
Urges its members at all levels to monitor, support, and advocate for laws, regulations, and programs that:
"Reduce man-made contributions to climate change and mitigate their impact on children’s health."
"Encourage the use of renewable, sustainable energy and technologies, as well as environmentally healthy land-use policies to reduce greenhouse gases and manage hazards to minimize further health problems."
"Promote environmental education programs in pre-Kindergarten through higher education including educating students on climate and energy literacy and human sustainability."
"Make schools carbon-neutral and energy-efficient models."
"Eliminate environmental pollutants and prevent new hazards."
