This hat was created to learn about the science of climate change and its impacts on all living things. Each of the four sides represents recent devastating climate change events: Melting Polar Ice Caps/Rising sea levels, California wildfires, Houston floods, and HABs (Harmful Algal Blooms) along Florida’s shorelines.
