On Saturday, June 10th, around 40 demonstrators with signs & banners attended a rally at the Iowa State Capitol to protest President Donald Trump’s recent announcement that the US will be withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement. Ruth Henderson, a science teacher with 40 years of experience in Iowa, was one of the rally’s organizers & also was involved with March For Science Iowa, an event that drew thousands to the same location earlier this year. Henderson spoke with Des Moines FM host Chance Dorland to discuss both events & the work she does as a science teacher to make sure students understand the importance of climate data & the environment.
