The presentation includes hands-on activities such as might be utilized by classroom teachers, and pays special attention to commonly encountered, but misleading (or flat out wrong) arguments that modern-day climate change is a hoax, or exaggerated, or not caused by human activities. Extensive research in cognitive psychology has identified ‘best practices’ to use when addressing misinformation. By modeling these best practices, audience members will learn not just climate science and climate change science, but also how to handle objections to the science in ways that increase student learning. Specific topics include the greenhouse effect, natural climate variability and how it differs from climate change, natural versus human causes of climate change, potential consequences of unchecked global warming, and possible solutions to the problem.
