Description:

As used in my class, this activity is the culmination of a semester of learning about Earth's climate system, and the basis for the scientific consensus on climate change. We conduct an exercise in myth debunking in the classroom (examining the arguments used in Michael Crichton's popular 2004 novel State of Fear) via classroom discussion and a written homework assignment. Analysis of the climate contrarian newspaper op-ed (featured here) is part of the final exam at the very end of the semester.
