New Exhibit on Climate Change

They even have a cool section for kids where you can learn how to build your own terrarium, quiz yourself to see how much you know about climate change, play games and puzzles and do many other fun activities.

The website is asking you to join with thousands of others around the world in inviting Senator McCain and Senator Obama to pledge that they will attend the UN Climate Meetings this December if they become president.
