In the future all Eagle scout candidates will be required to earn a merit badge in climate change junk science.
Via Scouting Magazine:
The Sustainability merit badge debuted at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree at The Summit Bechtel Reserve, West Virginia, USA.
Boy Scouts of America reported:
Although the badge is still in development, Scouts can expect to learn about pollution, resource management, green chemistry, and zero-waste practices. They will be challenged to live sustainably and, as in other badges, to explore careers related to sustainability.

Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the Sustainability merit badge will join the list of Eagle-required merit badges as an alternate to Environmental Science. Scouts who earn both badges can count the second as an elective.
