    Climate science remains an exciting and active area of scientific research. Although most scientists accept the core evidence of anthropogenic (human induced) climate change, much debate and evidence is still needed to determine the precise impacts. For instance, the rateFile Size: KB.   The global warming controversy is an ongoing dispute about the effects of humans on global climate and about what policies should be implemented to avoid possible undesirable effects of climate.

      Two other recent books— The Climate Solutions Consensus from the National Council for Science and the Environment and Climate Change Science and Policy (for which Schneider served as one of its editors)—offer some helpful and relatively nontechnical information for concerned by: There are very few books and very few sources of information generally that give a truly balanced introduction to climate science, and even fewer that are both balanced and genuinely informed. Robert Henson is a staff writer at the National Centre for Atmospheric Research in Colorado, one of the world’s leading climate change research bodies.

    Classroom Clashes (Pt. 2): Teaching climate change by Carrie Madren Editor's note: This feature is the second in a two-part series on teachers who face challenges to science in .   "'Teach the Controversy' Comes to Climate Science" Mark McCaffrey "A flurry of bills that critics say would allow climate change denial to be taught in public schools have been moving through state legislatures throughout the United States," reported ClimateWire (March 6, ).

The Science of Climate Change: A Hands-on Course not only teaches real science, it does it in the most engaging way.

The author presents the information in a conversational style that is friendly and inviting while keeping the scientific content accurate and thorough, and without talking down to the student/5(19). Although more than 95% of active climate scientists attribute recent global warming to human causes (1, 2) and most of the general public accepts that climate change is occurring, only about half of U.S.

adults believe that human activity is the predominant cause (), which is the lowest among 20 nations polled in ().We examine how this societal debate affects science classrooms and find Cited by:   Climate change is a rich topic to explore in the classroom. From science and geography to politics, it's an area with roots in a range of subjects and can be a great source for debateAuthor: Valerie Hannah.

Other teachers do an interesting strategy of presenting both sides, and that generally is frowned upon in science education, but in further investigation you kind of found out that, by teaching the controversy about climate change, they were able to neutralize the controversy about teaching it in the classroom.

One of CLEAN's goals is to help teachers be as effective as possible when teaching climate science.

This series of web pages introduces climate science in a sequence that illustrates different aspects of the climate system. Teaching and learning in environmental education: Developing environmental conceptions (Ballantyne and Packer, ) citation and bibliographic information This paper discusses how environmental education is closely connected with the affective domain in that it involves attitudes, values and behaviors, in addition to cognitive knowledge.

The authors recommend that teachers develop. The results of a new survey, published in the journal Science, suggest that many of America's middle and high school science teachers are misrepresenting climate. Another way to teach climate science is within the forum of an open (and structured) debate, says Shawn Otto, science writer and author of The War on Science: Who’s Waging It, Why It Matters and What We Can Do About It.

In his book, Otto advocates teaching “science civics,” by which students learn the historical and political contexts of. Let’s start with your first book, Fixing Climate: The Story of Climate Science – and How to Stop Global Warming by Robert Kunzig and Wallace S Broecker.

One of the reasons for picking this book is that Wally Broecker is my guru. He has been a friend for nearly 40 years and is a big influence on my life. But as to why current textbooks are so hopeless when it comes to accurately teaching climate change science, it’s not entirely clear.

However, the researchers suggest book publishers are trying to have it both ways, tacitly appealing to camps on both sides of the debate in an attempt to maximise the commerciality of their products. (, April 30). Very few pages devoted to climate change in introductory science textbooks: Less than 2 percent of pages discussed climate change in leading biology, chemistry and physics textbooks.

Climate is defined as the average pattern of variations in temperature, humidity, wind, precipitation, and other meteorological variables within a specific region over extended periods of : Grrlscientist.

Materials for students include a report on the climate change controversy (Student Reading 1) and the IPCC's reaction to it (Student Reading 2). Following them is a suggested approach to education "programmed for discovery rather than instruction" through.

This book is a survey of climate change policy. But developing, advocating, and implementing viable policies is impossible without some understanding of the science that underlies the climate change debate.

This chapter provides just such an understanding. Whether or not you become involved formally in teachingFile Size: KB.
