Show students the climate debate (July 25, 2017)
The best way to teach students about the climate change debate is to show it to them, not to involve them in it. There is a subtle but central distinction here. The goal is not for students to take sides (although some may). It is for the students to see that there is a huge scientific debate going on. I liken this to a field trip to a big laboratory or a scientific facility like an atom smasher. The student is not expected to understand the advanced science that is going on, but they can see that it is going on and what that looks like.
