Part 1 explores, and explodes, many of the common myths used to discount the overwhelming consensus scientific opinion that the Earth is warming, humans are causing it, the problem is serious, and that scientists are very sure of their diagnosis.
The course is designed to expose students to common arguments used to deny the science of climate change, and to provide them with the critical thinking necessary to understand why such arguments are wrong.
